Alison Can Read Feature & Follow

Gain new followers and make new friends with the Book Blogger Feature & Follow! This is a blog hop that allows bloggers to gain new followers and find some awesome new blogs to follow themselves!

So, if you're a blogger, come join in on the fun!

Here's today's question -

Q:  School is out!  What's your favorite summer reading book?

A: I don't have specific books that I like to read in the summer, but there are some books coming out this summer that I'm looking forward to.  Gameboard of the Gods by Richelle Mead, Branded by Abi Ketner, and Insomnia by J.R. Johansson, to name a few.

Feel free to follow me via GFC, but I'd love it if you could also follow me via BlogLovin', RSS or even FB (or any combination thereof)!  Links are all to the right.


  1. I'm definitely looking forward to Gameboard of the Gods! Richelle Mead has become one of my favorite authors.

  9. Ah yes! Summer releases usually are pretty awesome too! Read some of those last summer, want to try to tackle the ones I didn't get to this summer amongst new ones for this summer that have to be read asap! I so wish I could go without sleep! That would be a sure fire way to end the TBR mountain!

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  18. I already read Gameboard of the Gods ARC and I just had to share... I freakin' love the book! Hope you'll like it! :) And I'm not really a seasonal kind of reader. I mean I got lots of favorites.. But I don't think I really notice the season whenever I read. :P

    1. Glad you loved it!! I have actually read some reviews where people weren't crazy about it, but I'm still excited to read it!
