Follow Friday #8

Follow Friday is a weekly book meme hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee. For information on how to participate please visit their wonderful blogs!

This weeks question is:

"It's Thanksgiving Day in the U.S. so we want to know what you are Thankful for - blogging related of course! Who has helped you out along the way? What books are you thankful for reading?"

I'm not American and we don't have Thanksgiving in Australia but that won't stop me from answering this question!!

I am thankful for many things about blogging. Of course I am thankful to all of my followers! Without you guys there would be no Following The Reader! I am also ever thankful for Goodreads... Without it I probably wouldn't have discovered there is a whole world of book people just as obsessed as me!

Some book bloggers I am thankful for:

Giselle at Xpresso Reads and Taneika at Flipping Through the Pages. Both of these lovely ladies have been there pretty much since I started my blogging journey!

I also have Sophie at Born to Buy to thank, she isn't a book blogger, but if it wasn't for her I probably wouldn't have started a blog in the first place. We got talking one day about YouTuber's and how we are way not game enough to make YouTube channels and that blogs would probably suit us best!

What books am I thankful for reading? There are so many. Tomorrow When the War Began - John Marsden would have to be a big one. This one I had to read for school, back when I hated reading (don't hate me! I love it now and that's what matters!) and it got me into reading. Then I hit a slump and Twilight came along. I have to admit that I'm not as big of a fan as what I used to be, but Twilight is the book that got me reading again!

Then there are other books I'm thankful for such as:
Icestation - Matthew Reilly
Looking for Alaska - John Green
One for the Money - Janet Evanovich
Poison Study - Maria V. Snyder

What are you thankful for?

Happy reading!
- Amy


  1. Somehow, I have managed to grow up in Australia, reach the age of 27, and still never read Tomorrow, When The War Began. Clearly, there is something very, very wrong with me.

    Poison Study! Yes! This is one of my all-time favourite books!

  2. We also don't celebrate Thanksgiving here but it is a great holiday.
    I haven't heard of the books you mention - I'll have to look them up.

    Here's my FF Post
