Feature and Follow #55

This is a weekly blog hop hosted by the wonderful Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. Today's question is:

Q: Today’s is the US’ Independence Day. Share your favorite book with a war in it, or an overthrow of the government.

Good question, as always. My favorite book with a war concept is Lord of the Rings series. It may not have anything to do actual war but there is the aspect of good versus evil battle.   Other than that I can't think of any other books with war that I liked.

Hope you enjoyed the 4th :)

How about you, what's your favorite?


  1. My 11 year old son has been asking me to buy him the Lord of the Rings books. He loves the movies and is absolutely obsessed with The Hobbit, watches it at least 3 times a week. Great choice! My pick is George RR Martin's Game of Thrones.

  2. I think you could count Lord of the Rings books as having war.

  3. This was my second choice, I really enjoyed the battles in both the 2nd and 3rd books. Thanks for stopping by, following G+

  4. I am OBSESSED with LoTR! The war definitely kept me on my toes.

  9. Great pick! Love LOTR! Have a great Friday! :D

    My FFs are HERE and HERE. Happy Friday!

  10. Oooh, LotR is a good choice! I guess I have read more books that feature "wars" in them then I thought I had because I really had to think about this question. Possibly because I was caught up in actual wars, which I couldn't remember reading about, only now I keep coming up with books like Gone With the Wind and North and South... lol.

  11. I haven't read LotR, but what I have heard about it certainly has something to do with war or overthrowing a government!

  12. Great choice Shane! You could definitely count LotR as a war book...and a whole lot more too :D

  25. Lord of the Rings has a war, may not be overthrow of government per se, but good enough xD

    Thanks for stopping by my FF - following back!

  26. I've embarrassingly enough never read the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. I've tried reading the Hobbit on several occasions but couldn't get into it.

  28. Good pick..although I haven't actually read the series and I'm basing my option on the movies I still think it's a good choice. I like the movies :)

    Thanks for stopping by My FF

  29. I didn't even think of Lord Of The Rings! I agree, I don't have many books that have war in them - mainly only a good v evil war :)

  30. I briefly tried the books and wasn't able to make it through. Loved the movies though.

    Thanks for stopping by my FF.

  32. I haven't read the series, but I've seen the movies, and loved them! I can only imagine that the books are epic, considering the fact that books are always better than the movies! Great Pick! Thanks for sharing Shane!

    Lindy@ A Bookish Escape

  33. I would have to say The Outlander series. There's the Rising of '45 and then later the American Revolution.
    I've never read LoTR but I think I should rad it before I die :)


  34. Oooh.... nice choice Shane!!
