Feature & Follow (7)

Feature & Follow Is a Meme hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee

Happy Father's Day! Who is the best dad character in a book and why?

I have to say I definitely found this question one of the hardest so far as most of the books I've read don't have memorable dad's in or if they do they're not very nice, so after much thought it has to be Geoffrey Beck or more commonly known as Beck. I know he wasn't Sam's real dad but he gives the most amazing advice and he loves Sam more than anything and is just a kind, sweet gentle guy.

Still On My Mind (1)

Still On My Mind is a Meme hosted by Ya-Aholic.

Usually a lot of books stay on my mind long after I've read them but it was very hard to choose just one that stood out from the rest of them. One that I can remember everything that happened in the book and most of the amazing descriptions and for that it had to be Ultraviolet....

Ultraviolet follows the story of 15 year old Alison who gets put in a mental institute for supposed causing the death of a girl. With mixed up emotions and un answered questions how will she ever understand what truly happened that day, did she really kill her? Or is it something else an un answered condition?

One of my favourite things about this book are the descriptions, because Alison has a special condition Synaesthesia it causes her to taste sounds which results in beautiful, amazing passages of words. The way Alison thinks of things in her mind while trying to get to grips with everything I really admire her as a character when she knows things but everyone else thinks your crazy...
