Hop To It!

TGIF is hosted by Ginger at GReads! This week's question:


Character Envy: If you could be one character from a book, 
who would you choose & why?

I would pick Kat from Heist Society by Ally Carter. I don't think I'm really that much like her, but she goes on some of the best adventures! I love that she can travel anywhere in the world at a moment's notice - mostly because she's backed by her super rich, (is he more than a) friend Hale. She has all kinds of cool technology, and super heisting skills. And, if I were her, I could totally be A LOT smarter about the boy situation.

At least, that's what I'd like to think!


This week at Read This Instead:
5 stars for Bruiser by Neal Shusterman
WWW Wednesday - help me pick my next read


Book Blogger Hop
The Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Crazy For Books. This week's question is:

“Highlight one book you have received this week (for review, from the library, purchased at the store, etc.) that you can’t wait to dig into!”


I actually got several books this week (so you know it's the week I'm supposed to be working on my Sunday School lesson!) Supernaturally by Kiersten White came in the mail. And then I got Possession by Elana Johnson, Illusions by Aprilynne Pike, I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You by Ally Carter, and Happyface by Stephen Emond from the library.

I've been excited to read all of these! But I'm really looking forward to Possession because it's something new. I've tried to go into it knowing as little as possible, but I hope I like it!

Have a great weekend everyone!

  6. LOL. I love your answer to highlighting a book. It never fails that you have multiple distraction when needing to prepare a lesson for church.

  19. Howard, thanks for stopping by (twice)! Have a good weekend.

    barmybex, yay! I liked Wings, but didn't care of Spells as much. Even though they're kind of silly books I really like them. And I hope you like Paranormalcy/Supernaturally when you get around to them. They're so fun. :)

    pussreboots, I loved the pictures. :) More books need illustrations these days.

  20. Trish, thanks! It's such a fun read. I think I like it even better than Paranormalcy. :)

    KristinCanRead, it's so hard to pick just one! Hope you have a great weekend. :)

  24. I’m seeing a lot of single answer responses with Twilight being by far the most popular choice. I really must analyze all the elements of that series that send girls ga-ga. Such studies are a part of the never-ending "code breaking” we males need to continuously execute to understand and relate with the fairer sex.

    I’ve cracked about 80% of the code. I will continue cracking the code until I reach 100% success. Then I’ll write a book for men and become a billionaire overnight.

    BUT I DIGRESS....

    I’ve got four different series I can read over and over again. Three of them were written by deceased authors and three of them are fantasy adventures.

    Follow me back to my blog at http://www.howardsherman.net and find out how far off the beaten track I’ve gone with my favorite book series!

    Thank God it’s Follow Friday!

  25. I loved this week’s question! I’ve made so many friends in the book blog world and am really impressed with so many blogs it was hard to hunker down and make a choice.

    But I did it! I’m shining the spotlight on a Jersey girl! Hop on over to my blog at http://www.howardsherman.net to find out who she is and discover her amazing book blog.
