Follow Friday & Blog Hop

Thanks to Parajunkee's View and Crazy-for-Books for this week's fun questions.




Q. Do you have anyone that you can discuss books with IRL? Tell us about him/her.

Thankfully yes! My husband likes to read, too, so he talks to me about books a lot. Plus there are a few women in my neighborhood who are big readers. We keep trying (unsuccessfully) to start a book club. But we still share suggestions.


Book Blogger Hop

 Pick a character from a book you are currently reading or have just finished and tell us about him/her.

I'm reading Incarceron right now and have no idea what's going on. So I'll go with the book I just finished, Where She Went by Gayle Forman. (I'm giving it away here) Adam is the main character, and he is bitter, bitter, bitter about the choices other people have made. That makes him less than likable, but I was still sympathetic to him. It's hard to say more without spoiling, so I'll just say that I ended up really liking being in his head - almost as much as being in Mia's in If I Stay.

Who are you reading about now?

  1. Hello! :)

    I have a few people that I talk about books with in real life but the blogging community is great because there is just so much variety, I have found so many new books to read!

    I'm a new follower!

    I would love to be a member of a book group, but nobody in the area that I live seems all that interested. Good luck with yours.

    Happy reading

  6. I heard that book (Where She Went) was awesome! I also heard being in Adam's head was just as you said. As for Incarceron, I was confused by the end too, it was super odd. I was hoping for more! Love the blog! I'm your newest follower.

  11. Ooh I wish I was part of a book club! there's one at school, i think, but no one hardly participates. :(

    Ooh, Where She Went! I've read If I Stay and loved it lots :) I've heard Where She Went is much preferred, actually. I'd love to read it! :D

    I'm a new follower. Happy Friday!

  12. I actually have gotten my husband to start reading more! Whoo Hoo! He's a musician; obviously reading music is very different!

  13. Lucky you! I have absolutely no one to discuss books with IRL, it was part of the reason why I started blogging in the first place :P Have a lovely weekend!

  14. Oh I want to read Where She Went soooooo bad!! I have a few obligations to finish first, but that will be my next "just for me" read!

    I am very lucky to have met amazing women whom I can discuss books with through online book clubs. My mom and sisters also share a love of reading with me.
