Feature & Follow #7 / Friday Book Blogger Hop #8

Feature and Follow Friday is host by Parajunkee and Allison Can Read and give bloggers a topic to discuss each week while discovering new blogs.

Q: What hyped up book was worth all of the fuss?

Harry Potter! One of my favourite series and definitely worth the hype. People of all ages read it. .... I know, because it was my 60 odd yr old uncle in Germany that sent me the Order of Phoenix as I hadn't read the series yet. He use to read it on the bus to and from work. And I got my niece to read it and she wasn't a reader but she read all of them and loved them.

This weeks question:

 What is one thing that your blog readers probably do not know about you?

Umm, I don't think it is common knowledge, but I'm married and we have a son who turns 4 in Nov. 
For another thing people wouldn't have known about me is above in my Feature and Follow post. That is that my Uncle who was in his 60's got me into reading Harry Potter. LOL. 

There you go, that's two random things. =)

What about you? Leave me a link to your answer or post it in the comments! I'd love to hear your answer. =)

  12. HP is the most amazing series! So much hype surrounds these books even now, 5 years after the final book was released. Gosh I love these books so much! I've been seeing lots of HP love today!

    Here's my Follow Friday

  13. I loved Harry Potter, too! I listened to most of the books (as I read them) and they were narrated by Jim Dale. It was a great way to experience the series. He had different voices for each of the characters! Great!

  14. I love Harry Potter, awesome choice!
