Feature & Follow Friday #11

Increase Blog Followers, gain Book Blog Followers and make new friends with the Book Blogger Feature & Follow! If this is your first time here, welcome! You are about to make some new friends and gain new followers — but you have to know — the point of this hop is to follow other bloggers also. I follow you, you follow me.

The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Rachel of Parajunkee’s View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it’ll allow us to show off more new blogs!

This Friday's question :

Give us a sneak! What are you reading? Tell us about a fun or fail scene in your current read.


Well I've just, just started reading Clockwork Angel, like literally right now. So I don't really much to say about it now. I'll tell you about my last read, Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl, which was read as part of Young Adult Blogger Book Club.

So there's this incident that happens where Lena Duchanne (female protagonist) runs out of her english class after a bunch of students verbally bully her and in a fit of rage she happens to shatter the windows of her class. Obviously the male protagonist Ethan runs out after her to find her in a lemon grove. She's laying down tears streaking her face, watching the sky all the while asking him to go away. And then this happens :

“As I lay down, she sat up, I sat up, she laid down, I laid down. Awkward.”

I might have been smirking at the lame-ness of that scene above now. But when I read it then, you could've heard crickets chirping in the background. I just stared at the page dreading anything that came beyond this.

Leave a link to your Follow Friday post or let me know your answers in the comments below!
Happy Friday!

    1. I was hesitant reading it because of the mixed reviews. I highly confused myself truth be told. ;)

  2. Clockwork Angel is awesome!
    Beautiful Creatures was nice, but I didn't enjoy the rest of the books in the series, unfortunately.
    Thanks for sharing. :)

    1. Thanks for the follow Amber! Old books smell especially divine don't you think? ;)

  10. Passing through to say hi!I'm a new follower who found you by FF blog hop and hope I can see you back at my blog or blogs =)

  11. Lol, now I want to watch the movie and see if they filmed that scene. Ooh, clockwork angel has many scenes at the beginning. I can't wait to figure out what is really happening and who'll end up being the main characters

    1. So true. I haven't read The Mortal Instruments and I hope it won't affect Clockwork Angel, though it must obviously be fun finding connections from TMI.

  12. Thanks for following Imagine a World!
