Follow Friday and Blog Hop

Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee. This weeks question:

Q. Inspired by the inane twitter trend of #100FACTSABOUTME, GIVE US FIVE BOOK RELATED SILLY FACTS ABOUT YOU.

This one is harder than I thought it would be: 1. I own almost every book by Nora Roberts/J D Robb, even if I haven't read it.
2. I'm addicted to library book sales, especially the $5 a bag day.  We just fill them up and go through them when we get home, most end up going back to the library to be resold.
3. I have not read any classics but maybe one or two
4. Series over stand alones
5. I will never get through my TBR, I add 5 for every 1 I read

Book Blogger Hop
The Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love of the written word! This meme is hosted by Crazy For Books.

This week's question:
"If you could physically put yourself into a book or series…which one would it be and why?"

There are so many and it really depends on what I'm reading at the time. I really love Maria V Snyder's world that she created for the Study/Glass series. I enjoy when you have to go strictly by what the author tells you and not by what you think a (real) time/place is like. Plus it has Valek and Ari and Janco :)

Happy Reading and Hopping! Leave a comment so I can return the favor


  1. Hi there, old follower just hopping through for FF and I definitely agree with you about the TBR pile! I was JUST thinking that as I was browsing my NookColor shop to look for a third book to buy TODAY haha! I realized I really don't need another one, but I love buying a variety to help ensure I read in a variety and I wanted to get something a bit more masculine or maybe something a touch scary! Oh well haha, I really have enough and those two I really wanted will have to hold me over until I read some more. :)

    Anyway, I hope you're having a fabulous Friday morning and happy reading!

  2. Stoppy by from the hop, I am an old follower, ok maybe a current follower, old does not sound right. LOL
    I will have to check out the series you listed, I am not familiar with them.

  3. Number 5 for sure! I add books almost daily... we need to make a pact to read our TBR piles, lol!

  4. Apologies in advance for my answer this week as it will not immediately resonate with the book blogger population which happens to be 99.5% female.

    My choice is a book series geared towards guys which won’t enthrall the vast majority of my fellow book bloggers (who are almost entirely female) with the extensive discussion of powerful weapons and sexy milspec gear, beautiful women, eye-popping action sequences (with occasionally obscene violence), and the like.

    But there IS something in my answer that just about everyone of the female persuasion can benefit from my decidedly “books for guys” post. Hop on over to to find out what it is.

    Happy Hop Friday!

  5. I prefer series over most stand alones too. I get attached to characters and want more! I'm already a follower. My FF is at Coffee Table Press

  6. I've heard so many great things about Snyder's Poison Study series. I have the first book on my shelf, but I haven't gotten around to reading it yet!

  7. Hopping through. I really enjoyed Poison Study - the sequels weren't as good.
