Feature & Follow: #169 Book I’ve Never Read

Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee 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 week’s question is…

What book (or TV show or movie) have you not read that seemingly everyone else has?

Easy.

Book – I’ve never read anything from the Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyers (Cinder, Scarlet or Cress). In my defence it is a little hard to read the last one as it won’t be out until next year.

TV show – I’ve never watched Breaking Bad or Game of Thrones. I don’t know anything about either series besides their names and that people keep jabbering about them.

Movie – I’ve never watched Titanic. I tried to a few times but was over 3 hours long and…I got bored [hangs head in shame].

    • Cinder is sitting in my TBR pile, just waiting for me to get my act together. The more good press I read about it, the higher it moves up. I will get there, I promise.

    • It just feels weird if you watch the movie first and then go back to the inspiration. I’m ‘one day-ing’ an awful lot of books too.

    • I did see bits of the ‘making of’ Titanic which showed huge amounts of water just gushing down corridors so you’re probably right. I just keep coming back to the over 3 hours thing.

  1. [email protected] GREAT read

    Sooooo many people are mentioning Breaking Bad! I’ve never really heard much buzz over this show, so I am kind of surprised nearly everyone is mentioning it!! I don’t have the premium channels myself so I’ve never seen Game of Thrones either.

    I tried reading Cinder earlier this year or late last year. It just wasn’t for me. I wanted to love it so much because everyone said how awesome it was, but it just fell a little flat for me sadly.

    Titanic…wow, it’s been awhile since I saw that movie! Think I was in 4th grade when it came out! I remember nearly every book on Titanic or anything to do with Titanic had been checked out! It was an okay movie. Kind of depressing…since we know the ship sinks and over a 1000 people die and the lack of life boats and not filling up the life boats to capacity.

    Here’s my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT weekend!

    • Breaking Bad is pretty big where I work as is Game of Thrones. They must have premium channels cause it definitely isn’t on regular. Mind you, not much is. We do get Modern Family and Homeland fast-tracked from the US but that is about it.

      I’m with you on the Titanic thing – the sinking wasn’t exactly a shock to the system. It was pretty obvious that the poor were going to die and a few rich people were going to survive.

  2. I’ve only read Cinder from the Lunar Chronicles, but it is a book I’d recommend if you ever want to try it.

    Breaking Bad is talked about everywhere, especially on this meme. I’ve started watching it, I feel like I’m being assimilated 😉

    • Resistance is futile. You should be flattered though as the borg and other like-minded species only assimilate those they see as superior to them so they can get those qualities. They want you for your awesomeness 🙂
