Welcome to My Book Musings! Feature & Follow is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee’s View and Alison Can Read. It’s purpose is to gain and meet new friends and followers. Feautre & Follow has a new button, and it looks fantastic! I have a new header and button too, what do you think about it? :)

You can follow me via e-mail, Goodreads, Google Friend Connect (GFC), Linky, Bloglovin' and RSS. Do add me on your Flipboard account as well!


Q: We always talk about books that WE want. Let's turn it on its head. What books have you given other people lately?


I think the Beautiful Creatures series by Margaret Stohl and Kami Garcia. 


I have set up a Box account for my ebooks so they won't fill up my hard drive, and in case my hard drive crashes at least I'll still have a copy of them! My two elder sisters have access to it so they just download a copy of whatever book they want. I think my eldest sister has just finished reading the Beautiful Creatures series :)


As for physical books, I think the last one I gave was The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari, which I gave to my mom. I'm glad she enjoyed it! :)


How about you?


Do check out my own meme, That One Line.


Happy musings! :)

    1. I'm not really curious about the movie though, because sometimes the movie tie-ins ruin the book or deviate from the story, and I usually like the book more than the movie.

  6. Love the Beautiful Creatures books and surprisingly liked the movie...my boyfriend even liked it so I'm super excited about that. Movie was different in so many ways and it didn't ruin it, plus I feel now that I've seen the country humor in action since I'm reading the last book right now I am getting the humor waaay better. Anyway I digress, haven't heard of the book you gave your mom and totally great idea about the flash-drive. I definitely will be getting one of those soon. Thank you for stopping by the blog and I hope you have an amazing weekend 8)

  8. I'm a bit iffy about reading Beautiful Creatures. I might give it a go once the interest in it dies down a bit and the library actually has it in stock. You know I didn't think of backing up my ebooks! eeek!

    1. I'm not such a big fan of Beautiful Creatures too! I think I only gave it 3-4 stars? But it's interesting enough.

      Thanks for following! Followed your FB and Goodreads because I couldn't find Linky... :)

  9. Hi, Goldie. I've heard of Beautiful Creatures, but I haven't checked it out yet. Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier.

    Your header is beautiful. Can't see the button yet because I'm using my phone and viewing the mobile version of your blog. I'll stop by later when I get on my computer.

    Have a wonderful weeked! :)

  10. I have read all the Caster Chronicles books as well, and I really enjoyed them! I'm a little afraid to go see the movies, though, I've been disappointed so many times.

    Old follower stopping by to wish you a wonderful weekend. Here's my FF post for this week.

  12. Loving the new header/button, looks like a chubbier version of me ;).

    I've always been hesitant about reading Beautiful Creatures, I have no idea why! Maybe I'll try it sometime and there's the movie too!

    Old Follower and here's my FF. Happy Friday!

  13. It's great that you all enjoy the same type of books enough to share. My family was pretty split with everyone liking their own genres, but we did have a few cross overs we all read. Thanks for stopping by this week. Old follower :)

    1. I'm usually the one who reads various genres, so I've read serious fiction books of my parents, and I particularly loved Arthur Hailey!

      Hope you had a good weekend, Traci :)

  16. Aw, that's awesome you can all share. I finally gave in and bought an eBook copy of Beautiful Creatures. Hopefully I get a chance to read it soon. I've seen mixed reactions to it and am curious about it more than ever with the movie releasing. Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier. ♥

    1. You're welcome! Looking forward to your thoughts/review about Beautiful Creatures. It was nice, but it was not a five-star series for me. Still, very enjoyable and it was easy to get caught up in the story. :)

  18. I just offered my cousin Beautiful Creatures to borrow. She is interested because of the movie.

    1. What did she say so far? I haven't even read up on reviews about the movie, so I'm not sure if I'll really see it on the big screen or just wait for it on HBO.

      Thanks for dropping by, by the way! :)
