Feature&Follow (4.1.2013)

Q: What New Years blogging or writing resolutions have you placed on yourself?
I have done one post about this and it can be found here.
Mostly I want to increase the volume of my followers so I can start hosting book tours. I also want to post regularly. Of course I also participate the Goodreads 2013 Reading Challenge and my goal is to read at least 50 books this year. And there’s going to be new awasome design soon (I hope!)..

Teaser Tuesdays (1.1.2013)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

- Grab your current read
- Open to a random page
- Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
- BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
- Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My Teasers:

” ‘So why’d you come here?’ Willa folds the paper carefully, taking her time.”

-Wake by Abria Mattina

This is the first meme I participated in and I would like to find more interesting and fun memes. I’m taking suggestions!

My review

 

 

 

 

I decided to read this, because my granny loves it so much. She's read Gone with the Wind several times and never fails to mention how good a book it is. So I added it to my to-read list. In December I got an urgent feeling I must read it, so I grabbed the book and began.
 
I was astonished how the book managed to grab a hold of me from the very beginning. I was even interested about the history aspect of the book! Although Scarlett seemed a very annoying person I read about her life with great interest and I wasn't concerned about the length of the book...
