Feature & Follow #1

The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee’s View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it’ll allow us to show off more new blogs!










If you could read a book for the "first time" again, which book would it be? Why?
  I wanted to say Harry Potter. Getting to visit Hogwarts again for the first time would be amazing. But ultimately, I'd want to read Lord of the Rings again for the first time. I've always been a bookworm since I can remember, but reading the Lord of the Rings sparked something inside of me. 

  I would give nearly anything to be taken back to my first moments discovering Rivendell and meeting Strider for the first time in the Prancing Pony. Aragorn is my only book boyfriend. Even though he was left out of the movies, Tom Bombadill will always hold a place in my heart as a favorite character. Discovering all of Middle Earth with a band of mismatched heroes is the highlight of my reading experiences. 
  Tolkien is the be all, end all for me in the literary world. Since I discovered Lord of the Rings, I've been searching high and low for more of his work. As I'm drawing to a close on reading all of his stories, it comes with a sad realization that I will never get to experience the rush of being introduced to another work of his for the first time. I am truly envious of those who have not read his work before and get the chance to do so. At the risk of sounding like Billy Madison, cherish it.

What about you? Which literary world of wonder would you chose to experience again for the first time?

  12. Praise this post!
    I totally agree with you.
    I'm a total Tolkien myself. I enjoyed LOTR, but The Hobbit is my favorite. I actually collect copies of them. I have ten different covers. My husband makes fun of me.
    It's so refreshing to meet another Tolkien Nerd!!
    Also, welcome to Feature & Follow Friday! See you next week!

  17. Same choice! I wanted to go for HP but I figured most are going to choose that so I went to the high fantasy genre and pow! LOTR. It was sad that they didn't include Tom Bombadil in the movies.

  20. This is the second one I have seen so far. I really need to pick up the series. I am so intimidated by it though that I am scared. I need to bite the bullet and give it a shot though!

  22. I have a small fear of this series because it's long and also very strange. I loved the movies but am holding off on the books... I'm more prone to reading it now though because so many people are saying it's one of their favorites.

  25. I feel ya. I haven't read LOTR since high school, but I grew up going to bed with stories of Frodo and the One Ring. I don' t think there's any way for me to get a fresh perspective now, but I always enjoy re-visiting Middle Earth. Great choice! Have a nice weekend! :D

  32. Love that gif hehe ^__^ I haven't read the books yet but I have seen and re-watched the movies and I believe the epic-ness of the movies are magnified in the books.

  33. New GFC follower! Thanks for stopping by my blog! You are the second I've seen to pick this series. So, I have def moved it up on my TBR list. I love the movies and I am interested in seeing the differences.

  34. LOTR really is alone (IMHO) as the greatest epic fantasy (i.e. quests, armies, magic, monsters). Great choice. New follower via bloglovin'. My FF

  35. Experiencing HP for the first time again would be magic, haha, pun intended. :) I haven't read LOTR yet but am looking forward to the experience!
