Feature and Follow # 4

Increase Blog Followers
Hi guys!
Kyendwarrior here!:)
Feature and Follow is hosted by the fabulous Parajunkee   and the awesome Alison Can Read

This week's question:
Recommend some of your favorite back-list books-books that are at least a few years old (I'm thinking 5-10 years rather than classics)

Oooo!! I love this topic! Here are my picks!:)

1. Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine.: (DO NOT WATCH THE MOVIE UNTIL YOU HAVE READ THE BOOK. IN FACT JUST DON'T WATCH THE MOVIE AT ALL.  OMG IT WAS LIKE FORESHADOWING TO THE ERA OF THE PERCY JACKSON MOVIES. JUST DON'T! )  This book is one of my all time favs! I just love fairy-tale retellings! :)

2. Kissing Doorknobs by Terry Spencer Hesser:  So this one is 16 years old, but it's not a classic, so I guess it counts ^_^  It was a real eye opener to OCD, and it really encouraged me to think before I spoke.

3.Summers at Castle Auburn by Sharon Shinn:  It was one of the first books that got me hooked onto high fantasy.  It's been a while since I've read this, but I remember it being somewhat soft and a bit nostalgic.

4. Everything on a Waffle by Polly Horvath: To be honest, I actually hated this book when I first read it because I was forced to read it for AR points (remember those??).   Since then, I have come to love this book (and am missing those AR tests! Now that I look back on them, they were just like book quizzes I do for fun on Goodreads!) and also have read it several times.  It's very heartwarming and sweet, and I do love those recipes! :)

5.  Midnight Rider by Joan Hiatt Harlow: I love this book to pieces! (Literally- my own copy is falling apart!;) ) I picked this up during my American Girl and Dear America phase, and I've been hooked onto this author's books (and historical fiction) every since!

So what are your picks this week?
Thank you so much for stopping by!!:)

I can't comment on your blog (sorry :( ) , but I love your picks as well! I Love 13 Reasons why and Book Thief! I heard they're coming out with a movie on 13 Reasons and I'm so excited! :)

Really?! That would be an incredible movie. I'll be on the lookout for it :)

I haven't read Ella Enchanted but I probably should. I haven't seen the film in its entirety either but when you mentioned the Percy Jackson saga, that scared me. I really need to read the book and avoid the film at all cost :) Thanks for sharing!
