Feature and Follow Friday (6) and TGIF (2)

Feature and Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.

Q:You're a matchmaker—your goal, hook up two characters from two of your favorite books. Who would it be? How do you think it would go?
A: Hmm this is a hard one. Can one be a TV show? Dean from Supernatural and Evie from Paranormally would be an awesome match.  Oh the snappy  comebacks that would ensue.  They are both pretty similar, they are brave and loyal, but also snarky and like to have a good time.  Maybe they could have rollie-chair races down the halls of the Center together :)

TGIF is a weekly blog hop hosted by GReads.  It helps bloggers gain exposure and it gives us all one more thing to talk about on Fridays!

Q:  Issue Books: Which books have you found to be very rewarding when it comes to tackling tougher issues? 

A:  Oh gosh, I'm really going to dig into the past with this one, and maybe it's cliche but I really would have to say Anne Frank: Diary of a Young Girl.  For countless children the subject of the holocaust was made real and approachable by the words of Anne Frank.  Just a child, she endured the unthinkable with grace, courage and outspokenness and created what is, to this day, one of the most beautiful and tragic pieces of modern literature the world has seen.  Reading this book as a kid both shattered my view of the world and drove me to try and understand why evil people act the way they do and how we, as human beings, can, even in the most dire of circumstances persevere and do good for one another.

  2. An interesting pair. Didn't think of putting those two together, but it does sound like they'd have some fun.

  3. Ohh that sounds like a fun couple for FF! I haven't read Paranormally though, or is it a show? lol.

  4. Hopping through. Hard to beat Anne Frank. It's such a timeless, sad story. Have you read Zlata's Diary - about a girl in the early 90s in Bosnia?
    My Hop

    1. Oh my gosh, I totally forgot about that one. I'll have to re-read it, I think I read it back in grade school.

  5. OOoh Evie and Dean. Now that would be interesting! I can't even put to words how interesting, but yeah, awesome match!!

    Anne Frank, that was a tough one to read. I remember reading it years ago. It was hard, with the "issues" wise.

    Here's my Friday Hops

  16. IDK...Dean is my man..I don't like him goin with ANYONE..lolz..
    TBH I am a Sammy gal at heart. Dean is an uber hot ass but Sammy bakes my cookies.
    TVD season ender blew my mind! I knew it would happen eventually but not so soon, not like that. I thought it would be more romantic. Then again that WAS a bit romantic actually.
