Friday Following Fun - #4

Thanks for stopping by this week for some Friday Following Fun! I've got some great new reviews out this month, including some fantasy/paranormal and my usual historicals! Check 'em out!

 Every week, parajunkee features a book blog, with some information about the blogger and why they started the blog. Then, everyone who's part of the FF system follows that person. There's also a beautiful linky list below that with links to hundrends (literally) of other book blogs. What a wonderful way to get connected to others who share a passion for books and for blogging!
Our Feature - Lisa @ Read. Breath. Relax

My name is Lisa, and I blog over at Read.Breathe.Relax. I’m a professional writer/editor and super, mega avid reader. I recently married the love of my life, who I affectionately called Beard or BeardFace.

The other member of our family is an orange tabby cat, Meow Meow. He loves to gallop around our apartment like a horse and wreck havoc on fringed tablecloths and catnip mice. Other than reading, I love writing, editing, scrapbooking, laughing, coffee, raspberry pie, journaling, picking at my nails and collecting quirky friends.

I've been blogging since 2009, but have been posting consistently since this past March. I mainly read and blog about Fantasy and YA books (almost all of the YA books fall in the fantasy genre, too). I particularly love all the Dystopian books out there and have recently fallen in love with Steampunk!

Sound like a cool blog? Just click the @Read. Breathe. Relax. above and get directed to Lisa's fabulous book blog! And remember - FOLLOW FOLLOW FOLLOW!!!
The Linky List:

The Weekly Question (answered by Yours Truly!): Let's step away from besties...What is the worst book that you've ever read and actually finished?

A. I think the worse full-length book I've ever actually finished was National Velvet when I was about 10 and had to read it for a school assignment. IT WAS AWFUL. More recently than that, The Devil in Disguise by Stephanie Sloane would have to suffice. It was hideous. Review here: The Devil in Disguise

Happy Follow Friday! See ya' next week!


  1. Well man. I guess maybe you had a very strong reaction to the book. Sometimes we just don't like a book. New follower. Come visit me over at Livre De Amour-Books of Love Blog.

  2. Hey. New follower here!

    I normally don't finish books I don't like, since I hate force reading. I don't mind though! The time should be spent on good books. I have forced myself through some though, like the ones mentioned in my post.

    Happy weekend! My worst read can be found here.

  3. Grace - haha, I truly did. I will remember how much I disliked National Velvet for the REST of my LIFE. It is forever burned into my memory.

    Bex - I hate force reading too - especially since there are soooo many great books out there!

    I'll be sure to check out both your blogs! Thanks!

  4. Hopping through. I've never liked horse books much. I don't remember if I read National Velvet but I probably wouldn't have liked it.

  5. New follower hopping through! I've never read National Velvet, but I agree, horse books don't interest me very much.

    Hope you're having a good weekend! :)

  6. I don't mind books about horses, or books with horses in them (after all, a quarter of the romantic scenes in Regency novels contain horses, or secret trysts in the park facilitated by the use of a horse. Where would we be without horses in Regency?). But a book solely focused on an animal's relationship with a human doesn't really work for me. Communication barrier nonwithstanding I guess I'm just not a huge animal fan. I mean, I don't stand for fur coats or putting down shelter dogs, but the relationship isn't for me. I like human relationships. Clearly... I'll stop by both your blogs! Thanks for following!
