Feature and Follow # 1



The 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!

Q: Summer Reading. What was your favorite book that you were REQUIRED to read when you were in school?

A: It's been so long ago LOL, um I have to say Where The Red Fern Grows, though it was so sad.

  1. I've heard it's very sad, but I've never read it! I've been meaning to.

    And I'm so glad I'm not the only one who has trouble remembering that far back... makes you feel old, doesn't it? Lol.

    Thanks for stopping by my FF!

  2. I have never read Where the Red Fern Grows! My mom wouldn't let me read it because she said it was too sad (I was a sensitive kid *lol* ) I should probably get to reading so I can let my daughter read it too!

  3. Aw. Where The Red Fern Grows made me cry and there aren't many books that I can actually made me cry instead of just misty eyed. It was even more hateful since we were reading it in class. Oh, high school...

  16. Never read the book, but watched the movie as a child. After that, I think I refused to read it because it was so sad. Doesn't a dog die in it? If so, that's why.

  17. Never heard of this one. And I don't think I'll read it cause I really don't like crying. LOL! I mean I don't like to cry that much over a book. I've done a lot of crying in Danielle Steel's books back then. I don't like sad books. :(

  19. Ah now, Donna...I have a story about this one that I remember! I've never read the book, okay, but one time (don't ask me when...I can't remember everything!) I was with a friend at the movies. I don't even remember what we saw. How horrible is that? But afterwards we decided to sneak into the end of another movie and it was Where the Red Fern Grows. And I mean, it was literally the end of the movie lol. We had no idea what it was about.
