Feature & Follow is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read!

Q: What hyped up book was worth all the fuss?
I'm sure these answers are going to pop up a lot:
Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire and Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead!

First, lets talk about Beautiful Disaster. Literally, everyone and their mothers were posting about this book. Curiosity got the best of me and I'm so happy that it did! This was my favorite book of the year and has become one of my favorites of all time! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK!  People usually either have a love/hate relationship with it, but take the chance and you may just love it like me!

Beautiful Disaster (Beautiful, #1)

Now, the Vampire Academy series. I read this series for the first time a couple of years ago and became so completely absorbed in its world! I understand that vampire books are not for everyone, but I personally don't mind them, especially ones that are as action-packed as Vampire Academy. Once again, I TOTALLY RECOMMEND THEM!

  5. Haven't read any of these (yet). Happy Friday! My FF

  6. I absolutely loved Beautiful Disaster! So worth the hype. I read VA before I started blogging, so the hype for them didn't quite reach me, but my sister basically forced them down my throat telling me I just had to read them. I'm really glad I did.

  7. I want to read Beautiful Disaster - though I've heard mixed reviews.

  11. I've seen Vampire Academy on a few FF posts today. I think I might just have to give those books a try.
