Feature & Follow Friday (8) Undiscovered Talent
Welcome to Feature and Follow Friday, a weekly meme hosted by the wonderful bloggers, Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. The goal of this blog hop is to gain followers, discover new blogs, and make new friends! What makes this blog hop different than others (and the reason I chose to link up) is that each week both hosts showcase a "Featured Blogger" ~ what a great way to get to know bloggers from different genres and areas!!

This weeks featured bloggers are Romance Dreamland Book Corner and My Random Book Thoughts, check out their blogs, see what they're about, and then give them a follow!

Question of The Week:

Undiscovered Talent ~ Tell us about a book you loved but no one else seems to have heard of. It can be new or old, any genre. Let's spread the love!! - Suggested by Becky's Barmy Book blog

I love the question this week but it was also a really hard one to answer! I tend to read pretty mainstream, best seller books and the indie books I read are the ones everyone's already talking about. So I had to think about this one for a bit but then I remembered this totally awesome book I stumbled across last year:
Penpal by Dathan Auerbach started as a series of short and interconnected stories posted on an online horror forum. It was October last year and I was looking for something scary to read to put me in the Halloween spirit. I did a random search online for "current popular horror stories" (or something to that) and ultimately found my way to this book. This book and its author definitely have a huge online following but I'd certainly never heard of them and neither has anyone I've asked since reading it. Penpal is creepy, disturbing and extremely chilling. It absolutely gave me nightmares and was just what I was looking for :)

Thanks all and Happy Friday!!!

  3. OMG, I know someone would suggest this book. I've read Dathan Auerbach's series of posts via Reddit ages ago. I have yet to finish reading the book though. I've started the book but it seems overlong because I already read the original posts that I saw elements as kind of exaggerated for emphasis. I love the shortness of the reddit posts.

  4. I have never heard of this book! It sounds perfect for Halloween.
