Double Feature!





Taaaa daaaa!! Guess what guys?? (This shouldn't be too hard as it is blaring in your face) I'm the Feature and Follow Friday's featured blogger! I really enjoy taking part in this meme and visiting other blogs- isn't it a great way to see some new blogs and meet new bloggers? And with that I would like to thank the hosts Alison at Alison Can Read and Parajunkee for the spotlight and coming up with this fab feature to begin with! (and for putting up with my many questions) *cue round of applause* 

I also want to welcome all you newcomers! How are you? Look around, read, comment, send me suggestions (as you can see I'm pretty new) and just enjoy! Hope you like my blog and I'm happy to check out yours- just leave me the link and I'll follow back:)  

So this week's question is... 
Give us a sneak! What are you reading? Tell us about a fun or fail scene in your current read.

Well! I'm currently reading The Fellowship of the Ring (Lord of the Rings Part 1) by J.R.R Tolkien because I feel like, how can I call myself a reader if I haven't read these yet? I just started and so far so good. It begins with this amusing little scene in which the hobbits of Hobbiton and Bywater 'tongue-wag' at the local pub about Bilbo (about whom we read in The Hobbit), his adopted heir Frodo, scandals, riches, and standard small town gossip. It kinda reminds me of the first scene in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire where the residents of Little Hangleton buy each other drinks while thirstily try to get news out of the maid.  
What about you??

And before you scroll down to sign up and participate I also want to share the SECOND place I'm featured in this week- Around the World hosted by the lovely Emily at Falling for YA! There I talk a little about what it's like to be a book blogger in Israel- check it out! (It may not be up yet, so if not come back later:))

Hope you have a good weekend, and check back later this week for my thoughts and favorite quotes on The Lord of the Rings! (I don't know how I'll do it.. you can't really review a classic, can you?) 
Esty:)

  20. Congrats on being featured this week! I hope you enjoy LotR! I read it when the movies came out, so it feels like it's been forever, but I loved the world JRR Tolkien created. It's amazing how much work he put into it!

  25. I have never read the lord of the rings books. I watched the movies and though I know it doesn't count it's one of those things where if I see the movie I'm probably not going to read the book.

    YAY for reading Lord of the Rings! I felt the same way before I read them for the first time a few years ago: like how can I call myself a fan of fantasy when I haven't read the daddy of them all LOL I hope you continue to enjoy it :)

    Happy week end!
