Follow Friday & Blog Hop

Sorry for the slow week. Looking for a house has become a time consuming, tedious project

Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee. This weeks question:
Q.Your favorite book/movie character just walked into the room! Who is it and what would be your first reaction?
A. I don't really have a who, at least I can't think of one (might be either Jamie or Valek). The reaction: I would probably just stand there and say nothing. Kid Rock walked into the store I was working at a few yrs back and it was more interesting to watch everyone else act crazy. Didn't have time to react myself :)

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 weeks question: 
Q.What keeps you reading beyond the first page of a book, and what makes you stop and put it back on the shelf.

A. This is another with several answers. The first being mood, sometimes I just don't feel like reading a particular book doesn't mean there is anything wrong with it just don't want to read it right then. Usually it is the main character/s if I don't feel any sort of connection to them it can cause me to set the book down.

Happy Reading and Have a Safe Holiday Week!


  1. Hey.

    Yeah i agree, i don't really react so much. Nice answers.

  2. Good luck with the house hunting/buying and all that jazz. I did it last year and I promise, it is worth it in the end!

  3. Good point, I have books on my to be read pile that have been there forever because I haven't been in the mood to read them... ever. Maybe I should clear those books out! :)

  4. I don't know why I keep reading a book. It's not the story. It's not the characters. I really don't know!

    I'm hopping by to tell you that I've got a wonderful giveaway going on at my blog, Readerbuzz. It's international! During the Readerbuzz July Giveaway I'll be giving away a $25 Amazon gift card! I'd love to have you stop in and throw your name in the hat to win!

  5. I agree that mood plays a huge factor in whether or not I can get into a book.

  6. These book blogger hop questions just get better and better. This one looks easy but I think it’s a trick question. We all know it’s the same answer – the writing – but we all have different perspectives of what good writing is.

    Hop on over to my blog at and read my three-prong answer as I explain why I’ll decide to pick up a book or put it down in under sixty seconds.

    Happy July 4th Weekend!

  7. Great answers.

    Mood affects my reading enjoyement. If I hate a book, I try again at a later date. Sometimes I end up liking the book, and sometimes I was right the first time :P

  8. Hopping through. Valek. Hadn't thought of him. I'd love to meet him too.

  9. Hopping by to say hello! Definitely agree that if there isn't some kind of connection to a book, I'll just return it to the library. Have a great weekend!

  10. Blog-hopping by to visit and follow! That's pretty hilarious about sitting back and watching everyone else's reactions to Kid Rock. I should try that alternative if I ever run across someone famous. :-)

  11. Stopping by via Crazy-For-Book's Blog Hop. I'm following your blog.

    I'm having a giveaway on my blog this weekend so please stop by!
