Feature and Follow Friday 2013 #2

Wow, only the 2nd time I've done this in 2013!!  I guess that's once a month, but I really like to participate in this more!  So, new goal, try to do this weekly!  This time of year is so crazy with school, but having a snow day yesterday and today has really helped!  Feature and Follow Friday is sponsored by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.  The purpose of this event is to learn about the two featured bloggers each week, as well as to increase your own blog following by joining in on the fun!  Here is this week's question:

We always talk about books that WE want. Let’s turn it on its head. What books have you given other people lately?

Well, this is a hard one.  I don't have a lot of people that I share books with.  Other than students at school and my friend Kim, and occasionally my sister Sarah.  But I'll talk about some students I've given books to I guess.  I've really been promoting some books that are going to be on the state award nominee list for next school year, not just because they're going to be on that list, but because I really enjoyed them.  Those books I've really been promoting are:  The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson, Legend by Marie Lu, and Variant by Robison Wells.  I'm trying to get my sister to read Beautiful Creatures and City of Bones, since they're coming out in movies and I think she'd really like them.

So, what books have you shared lately?
