This Week's Question:
...this is a scary question! I have 10 books out of the library, 5 dead tree books that I've bought but not read and...a whole bunch on my Kindle that's not near enough to me for me to count right now. But there's probably 6 or 10 normal books and another good chunk of Netgalley books. In other words, I'm pretty content not to get up and grab the Kindle and have to count. Then there's my to-be-read list on Goodreads which is over 100, but that's partially books that haven't come out yet. So yeah, it's a little bit intimidating to think about like that! Probably the number one book that I've been meaning to reading since summer and just haven't opened it is my friend Janine Spendlove's War of the Seasons.
Follow My Book Blog Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read to feature a different blogger every week and let all of us stop by to say hi!
You should go check her site out! She's got a lot of cool reviews and a gorgeous blog design.
Q.If you could pick one character in a book, movie or television show to swap places with, who would it be?
Such a hard question! I'm sure my answer depends on my mood and the phase of the moon and every other possible factor. So with that caveat...
Right now, I'd love to be Annabeth from Percy Jackson and the Olympians - the books. Definitely the books and not the movie! Or Hermione (obvious answer!) from the Harry Potter books...but I'd really be more into Harry. Sorry, Ron.
Oooh, what about Kat from Heist Society or Mrs. Coach from Friday Night Lights (because mmm, Coach, hi). Or Josh Lyman from The West Wing or Willow from Buffy ...though minus the dark veiny stuff. Cause...no. I would totally love to be Rose Hathaway from Vampire Academy, but I'm pretty sure I'm not that badass. Maybe I'd be better as Lissa Dragomir. I'd so be a good Queen, I swear.
Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Crazy for Books that allows us to connect with and support other book bloggers who love books just as much as we do!
“It’s time to spread some love beyond the borders of the Book Blogger Hop! This week, we aren’t answering a question. We are spotlighting our fellow bloggers. Find your favorite(s) author interview(s), guest post(s), book review(s), or bookish article(s) that ANOTHER BOOK BLOGGER featured on their site recently and tell us why you love it/them! As an additional challenge, find your favorite one of EACH of the categories above and spotlight all 4 (interview, guest post, review, article).”
One of my favourite blogging features each week is YA Highway's Road Trip Friday. It's a collection of links about writing, reading, publishing, and crazy other stuff that's gone on during the past week, and it's always both hilarious and interesting. YA Highway itself is a neat blog written by a lot of young adult authors to talk about YA and the world. I pretty much love it for the amusement and sometimes even serious posts.
Also I can't link to all of them, but I admire so much all of you who do author interviews! I always read them with great interest, and I love seeing all your brilliant and incisive questions and the author's answers. It gives such a neat insight into the mind of authors and bloggers, and you guys who do it are so incredibly awesome!
