Follow Friday

Friday Follow is a blog hop that was started by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.  Each week a different question is posted by our hosts and we will answer!  This is a great opportunity for bloggers to network and interact. 
This week’s question – 

Pick a book in your favorite genre that you’d recommend to a reluctant reader.

The Pledge and The Body Finder are both starting books of trilogies by Kimberly Derting.  I LOVE Kim's writing and ability to weave an interesting tale.  Not only is she great at character building and relationships but she does it in a very clean way.  The Body Finder series is a bit of a mystery/thriller type.  There are a few scary scenes which make it all the more thrilling and wanted me to keep reading.  The Pledge was a really interesting twist on a unique story about long lost kingdoms and queens.  They are both completely different reads but each fascinating in their own way.  Ms. Derting is one of the most underrated authors that I know but for the young adults that I've recommended her to, they have also fallen in love with her books.

  2. I completely agree with you, everything I've read by Kimberly Derting is amazing! I can't wait until her new series comes out The Taking sounds just as thrilling as The Body Finder.
