Feature and Follow 7

Increase Blog Followers 

  The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee’s View and Alison of Alison Can Read.  
  What is feature and Follow? A weekly Friday topic (or activity) is given to share and we all take turns blog hopping, leaving comments and following one another.  If someone leaves a comment, be sure to comment back.  If someone follows you, follow them.  Always follow the hosts and the featured blog (see host site for more details).
 This weeks topic:

What book have you not read that seemingly everyone else has?

Well, since only giving 1 seems like a waste of space, I will give you several.  I sorted my Goodreads to-read list based on the number of ratings in has received and though I would share some of the books I have there that have the most ratings.  These are not necessarily the top most of books I want to read.  More like ones I know many people I know in real life have read these too.

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austin

The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown

1984 by George Orwell

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo be Stieg Larsson

Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden

The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan

The Host by Stephanie Meyer

Divergent by Veronica Roth

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

The Gunslinger by Stephen King


So, which of these have you read (or want to read yourself)? 



  1. Aw I love Divergent! I'll see Veronica Roth on the 23rd during her book tour :-)

    Following via GFC. My FF @ A Novel Idea by Chrissy T

    1. Nice! I wish she was coming near where I live. i would love to meet her. I have Divergent on my shelves finally now I just need time to read it :)

    2. I think you'll enjoy them! Thanks for stopping by and following back!

  2. I have a lot of book that I need to catch up with too... But "1984" by George Orwell was a story that has followed me quite a long time after I've read it.

    Your new follower,


    Ps: I entered a contest to win an French award for my blog. And I really appreciate, if you stop by my blog before october 25th to vote!
    Thank you!

    1. That is encouraging to hear that it can have lasting impact. I like that in a book.

  3. Wow! What a list! A lot of those are ones I'd likely never read since they don't fit inside my genre. I have read Divergent and enjoyed that series! Looking forward to seeing how it all ends this month!

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT weekend!

    Old Follower :)

    1. Well, being I I read a lot of genre's I lists tend to be a little for just about everyone.

  4. I haven't read most of those either so you're not alone! I keep saying I day. *New GFC follower*

    1. TBR list is quite long.So many books I want to read, so little time!

  5. Hopping through. I've read most of those. You should try The Host some time. It takes a long time to get into but is really good eventually.
    My FF

    1. I finally own it. Won it as a prize last month. Maybe that will push me to read it sooner.

  6. Oh man you have some of my favourites on here! I wasn't a huge fan of The Girl with the Dragon was a little too...graphically disturbing for me at times

    1. Yea, I saw the movie, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, so I am not in a rush to read the book but I still want to compare the two.

  7. I have read The Lightning Thief and Pride and Predjudice. Memoirs of a Geisha is one of my favorite movies, so I really want to read the book to see how it is! :)
