Feature and Follow Friday #5

Feature and Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee. The goal is to meet new people and gain more followers in the book blogging community. If you would like to join in the fun just visit one of the host's blog for the rules.

Activity of the Week: Today’s (yesterday) is the US’ Independence Day. Share your favorite book with a war in it, or an overthrow of the government.

I really love dystopian books, most of which feature a fight against the evil government, which sometimes results in a war. But there are actually few books that feature an actual overthrow of the government. Most are just about escaping the control of the state or it's just about survival, there is almost never a real revolution. It's mostly a personal fight against the rulers.

The Hunger Games Series is the only one I can come up with with an overthrow, and it is also my favourite series, so that's good.
Maybe Divergent or Shatter Me in their last book? We shall see:)

I'd prefer it if you follow me via bloglovin', since GFC is stopping/has already stopped I don't know anymore.

  1. This prompt had me stumpted at first. And then after I figured out what to post....I had like 20 different ideas of what I could post.

    Hunger Games is one of them. It's a great story. :)

  4. The Hunger Games is awesome! Great pick. I followered GFC and Bloglovin. GFC still works fine... Google reader is the only thing gone.

  5. Everyone is picking The Hunger Games today. If this were the Family Feud, it would be the #1 answer!! My pick is Game of Thrones by George RR Martin.

  6. I see a lot of The Hunger Games but I didn't pick it. I think because I was disappointed with book 3.

    Jen @ Library of a Book Witch

  11. Oh KEWL! I have The Hunger Games too, and I agree that those books were pretty cool :) And you're right about Divergent and Shatter Me. Book 3 might just be the deciding factors. Love those series too though! And great pick :) I don't think I'm anything new, but I'm a new follower on bloglovin :D

  12. I love this trilogy!

  15. I haven't read the series yet but I've had it on my Kobo forever. I want to read it but I didn't like the movie as much as most people and I don't know if I'd like the book either.
