Feature & Follow Friday | Books From a Burning House

Feature & Follow Friday is a weekly book blogger meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read to help bloggers gain new followers on their site.

This week's question is:

Your house is burning down and you have time to select three books you own to take with you. What three books?

My answer:

I chose 3 books in 3 different series that affected me strongly emotionally.

City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare
Real by Katy Evans
If I Die by Rachel Vincent

**And if I couldn't grab any physical books on my way out of the house, I'd at least grab my Kindles. I have a couple thousand books on those.

**And my Bible. There's no doubt about that. It's one book that I will take with me no matter what. In fact, I wouldn't even let it get close to the flames.

**This list is ending up longer than 3 books...

**I know there's a fire raging, but what reader in their right mind would only try to save 3 of their books???


  1. I'd be trying to carry as many as possible! Thanks for stopping by my blog, I'm an old follower. :)

  2. Oh my word! If I lost my bible in the fire, I think this would hurt the most because I have so many verses I've highlighted and notes I've written! Oh and for the record, I wouldn't save only three, I would grab as many as possible! :P

  3. Well, at least you did stick to three! Seeing lots of other answers going around too! Though since I have a ground floor room and window, I'll be smashing those open and "gently" tossing all my books out as fast as I could! Though that would take quite awhile I think...

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

  4. I have not read any of those books, but they must be good if you would take them with you. :)


  5. I haven't read any of those books yet, but I do plan to read the series that If I Die comes from. I'll have to read those books. Thanks for visiting! Old follower!

  6. Great picks! I'm a huge fan of the mortal instruments series. I'd definitely grab my kindle if I could! I'm a new bloglovin & GFC follower.

  7. The house is on fire not really gonna think about books :)
    I'm grabbing my tablet, my photo books and the signed books. I don't really have a favorite book I can't live without.

  13. Lol! My real answer would be to save my fiance, my dog, and my two cats. (: If I had time to spare, I'd save my Kindle because I have all my books on there and I can just repurchase my physical copies. (:

    Old follower! Thank you for stopping by my blog!

  14. I haven't read any of these books, but I have heard pretty good things about City of Heavenly Fire. I seriously need to read more series, I feel like I'm missing out on the good stuff! lol. New follower via bloglovin :)

  17. Totally agree! How could you save only three?

    Old Follower.

  18. I haven't read any of the three you picked. Haha! And yes, the Bible! I'd definitely save my Bible. :)

  19. I can't save just three books either, lol! And the Bible is definitely important, yup! :D

    Followed you back on GFC and Bloglovin!

  20. Yes, I think most of us could manage more than three -- or three and a bunch of other stuff! Hard to think about. Thanks for visiting!

  21. I shudder to think of such a situation... I would be lost if I am asked to choose between my beloved books..:(
    Loved your answer..Taking the kindle is a grt idea. :)
