Fan Fun Friday (3)

Every Friday I will have a guest fan make a recommendation of a book that they want to share with you. Any book, any genre. I also like to ask a couple of fun questions. This week my fan guest is Mariam! She is was "adopted" twitter sister. ;-)




Hey people! I'm Mariam and so happy to be on Crystal's Fan Fun Friday! 
Which by the way is an amazing idea. I lurve your blog! You are doing such a great job with it. If I didn't already know, I'd never think you were new to the "Blogger world". 

The book I'm recommending today is Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers. I knew I'd love it even before I read it. It basically called to me! Lol. 


Grave Mercy starts at when Ismae (the MC) is 14 and was being forced into a marriage with a pig farmer. She doesn't make it easy for him to have her. But upon seeing her scar he locks her away. She then escaped with help from a priest and sent to St. Mortain, a convent that trains them the art of death. (Intrigued yet? I hope so.) 
After 3 years she gets an assignment then everything happens after that. She falls in love (but pretty much denies it in most of the book). I loved everything about Grave Mercy, it was exciting, emotional (maybe that's just me lol) and just plain GOOD. The book's main quote is, "Why be the sheep when you can be the wolf." Cool right? I recommend Grave Mercy to anyone/everyone! 


Read more about Grave Mercy here.

Now here are some fun questions I asked Mariam!!


Q: What was the first book you remember LOVING?

A: The very first book that made me love reading was Elske by Cynthia Voigt. (Before that I never thought I could read a book for enjoyment only!!) Elske was so interesting  and activating that I couldn't help but look for more books that seemed just as interesting. 

Q: What is your weirdest obsession when it comes to books?

A: Hmm... I'm obsessed with the funny/sexy characters, but before that I'm mainly obsessed with how the cover looks like!! 

Q: All time favorite fictional character? Why?

A: OMG! Really Crystal?? That is hard... So many amazing characters! But I'm going for Kenji Kishimoto from Shatter Me because he is just so hilarious and amazing. 

This or That:

Read inside or outside?

Inside because I can't deal with the heat and tiny bugs flying around lol. 

Buy a book you are dying for at full price or wait until it goes on sale?

Full price, I'd want to get my hands on it the very minute I'm able to. 


Thanks so much for being part of Fan Fun Friday Mariam!!!! And from all of our little group WE WILL MISS YOU LURVE!!!!!

♥ Crystal
