Everybody's Looking Forward to the Weekend....

Don't forget to enter my Freedom Giveaway here!

Mr & Mrs: Who are your favorite book couples?

Can I just say that I had so much fun thinking about this question! I love a good like story. And I know I'm leaving couples off the list, but here are five favorites. And they're not all "together" but there's something there.

5. Noel & Ruby from the Ruby Oliver books by E. Lockhart. They're so flawed and so cute.

4. Ron & Hermione. Anyone else excited to see them (finally!) kiss in a couple weeks?

3. Cameron Quick & Jenna from Sweethearts by Sara Zarr. For the plastic ring alone.

2. Jonah & Taylor from Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta. "Because being part of him isn't just anything. It's kind of everything."

1. Peeta & Katniss (big surprise, right?) I think it was "Thanks for the tip, sweetheart" that made me realize they were going to be interesting.

Who are yours?


What keeps you reading beyond the first few pages of a book, and what makes you want to stop reading a book and put it back on the shelf?


A book that keeps me reading is either funny, or has characters I can relate to. (Or both) Right now I'm reading Amy & Roger's Epic Detour and laughing my tail off. Plus, who doesn't love a good road trip?

I'll put down a book if it's overly detailed, or if the characters are whiny. I guess I don't really care much about world building. I'd rather get to the plot, or spend more time with the characters.

  1. I give up a book very easily. Any little thing can make me stop reading.

    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!

  2. I can understand about the whiny characters. For some reason, it doesn't bother me as much. Although, I think it depends on the character for me, lol.

  5. With every list that I see, I regret not doing my honorable mentions list more and more. Jonah and Taylor would definitely be on mine.

    Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely weekend!

    P.S. I hope you continue to enjoy Amy & Roger's Epic Detour -- definitely a favorite of mine! :D

  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 http://www.howardsherman.net 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!
