Welcome to our stop on the Follow my blog on Friday hop.
Seth has left it to me to answer the question this week. Between you and me, I think that's because he spent more time at school playing basketball than reading his English lit! Actually, that's not really fair. After Seth's parents died he was forced to changed school a lot, so I guess he had more important things to worry about than his favourite books.
Seth rolls eyes . . . Erin, there are dozens of blogs these poor people have to visit, so just speed this process up for them by answering the question.
Erin . . . Okay, okay, Seth. I'm just giving them the background. So folks, this week's question is:
Summer Reading. What was your favorite book that you were REQUIRED to read when you were in school?
That's a no-brainer right there. We studied Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice when I was in grade 10. That was the BEST ever. Regular visitors to this blog will know that I just adore Miss Elizabeth Bennet.
But another favourite was Macbeth - in the original Shakespeare. I just love Shakespearean English. And as for those witches . . . how could you not love them? Fantasy on steroids.
So guys, that's our contribution. In the spirit of the hop, please visit as many other blogs as you can. Now I'm handing you over to Seth to tell you about a giveaway we are hosting.

Okay, now for a very different kind of book.
Next week on our blog we're featuring Jade Varden's JUSTICE, the first in the Deck of Lies series.
Don't be put off by the naff cover, this is a four star read. Check out this blurb from Goodreads.
A House of Cards...
Justice: Jade Varden
When you build an entire life on a foundation of lies, it only takes one truth for the whole thing to come crashing down. I never invited the truth in. I never went searching for it. I never had any reason to suspect that the two people I loved most were dishonest with me every second of every day.
I made one bad decision, and in a single day my entire world changed. If I'm ever going to discover the truth about myself and my parents, I have to trace all the lies back to their source. I have to try to find the truth that they're hiding.
The more I discover about myself, and my past, the more I realize that lies really are better than the truth. But now that I know the lies are all around me, I can't stop until I've discovered them all. I'll pull each lie away, one by one, and examine it to see what's underneath…until this house of cards crumbles into dust at my feet. I just hope I can survive the crash.
We will be reviewing this book next week, interviewing Jade, and chatting to her characters. Stop by, it will be worth it.
