Feature & Follow Friday (6)

Hi, passionate readers! It's Friday again. Don't you just love Fridays? We have the whole weekend ahead of us, and most of us will spend it reading.

This is our sixth Follow My Book Blog Friday, hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. Click on the image to learn more.

Q: Many readers/bloggers are also big music fans. Tell us about a few of your favorite bands/singers that we should listen to in 2012.

I should really let Lisa answer this question since I'm still stuck at worshiping System of a Down, and nobody wants to hear that, but I've managed to think of a band we both adore. There are two, actually, since we're huge fans of Linkin Park, but ever since we discovered Chester Bennington's other band, Dead by Sunrise, we are both in love. Here's a video for you (Lisa's choice, but my favorite too):

And that's it this week. Please don't forget to enter our Kickin' Off the New Year giveaway HERE.
Thank you all so much for stopping by. FF Fridays don't just bring us new followers, we got quite a few friends as well.

  1. Yes I adore Linkin Park too! I think the first song I listened by Linkin Park was Leave out all the rest which I absolutely love! Thanks for stopping by! Old follower too here! :)

  2. Ooh, I like System of a Down and Linkin Park. Bit of trivia for you - I met Linkin Park when they were all doing a bungee jump off the Sky Tower in Auckland. Bizarre. Thanks for visiting my blog - I saw REM a few years ago too. They were awesome.

  3. I love Linkin Park, though I prefer their old songs:D

  28. HUGE fan of Linkin Park!!!
    The funny thing? My 8 yr. old daughter adores them too--she thinks the lead singer has a sexy voice, lol.
    Right now, Avenged Sevenfold is owning me--Love all types of music, but tend to listen to more Alternative Rock. Thanks for the video---listening to it right now and LOVE IT>

  29. Whoops...I am following you back, lol
    Told, ya--too many things at once.

    Here's my FF!

  36. DUDE!!! We SO share the same taste! SOAD is all sorts of awesome, Slipknot as well. I've seen Linkin Park like 6 times, and when they come remotely near me again I'll be going again! Love em to death! (They were going to be here for DeLuna Fest this past Oct but Chester hurt his arm =*( )
