**Feature & Follow ~ #43 **


Happy Friday and welcome to the Blog Hop! 

Feature & Follow is a weekly blog hop hosted by the talented ladies behind AlisonCanRead and Parajunkee's View. The intent of this blog hop is to get out there and meet other bloggers and gain new followers yourself. What sets this blog hop apart is the Feature. Each week, two blogs are featured, one at AlisonCanRead and one at Parajunkee's View. So make sure to hop over to those blogs to check out this week's Features.


This week's Features are:
Chapterbreak.net
Pottermorebooks


This week's question is:
Recommend some of your favorite back-list books.


Okay y'all, I have mentioned before that my reading tastes are eclectic. :)  Here are a few of my favorite books 
from the past 20(?) years:

The Silence of the Lambs by Thomas Harris
A Time to Kill by John Grisham
The Same Sweet Girls by Cassandra King
Tara Road by Maeve Binchy
Bridget Jones' Diary by Helen Fielding

I really, really enjoyed the psychological aspect of The Silence of the Lambs. Grisham's A Time to Kill is my very favorite of his books. I read The Same Sweet Girls in a book club in ~2000 and I love the friendship between these 4 women. As for Bridget Jones...well, I am an Austen fan, so what can I say?!? ;)

What are some of y'alls back-list favorites?

  2. The Silence of the Lambs is an incredible book - the horror is so subtle that it creeps you out even more. A Time to Kill is also a great read.

    Have a great weekend.

  4. I haven't read The Silence of the Lambs but I saw a bit of the movie and it scared me so I couldn't watch the rest.
    I have most of John Grisham's novels. He's a great author.
    Happy Friday :)

    1. The movie was really well done and stuck very close to the book, Marilyn. But very scary! :) I'm glad you like Grisham too.

      I hope you enjoy your weekend!

    1. I didn't read much paranormal until I read Twilight, Jessica. Then I kinda went crazy. My book journals are filled almost entirely with paranormals! I was really happy to step out of my box. I enjoy so many different genres! :)
