Time for the Blog Hop & Follow Friday!!! 3/25

It’s time for the Blog Hop & Follow Friday again! I love this part of the week because  I’m meeting so many awesome bloggers, writers, readers *sigh*. So to all of you hopping with me I’m smiling widely like a doofus and waving frantically as always!!

Blog Hop is hosted over at Crazy-for-Books and Follow Friday is hosted at Parajunkee. These memes were created to help make the web smaller, and introduce us bloggers to one another. We can find sites and meet people and follow those we love! We increase our followers and we get some fun new sites to add to our dashboards too. Its a big win-win and I am thrilled to be taking part again this week.

So the question this week at Crazy for Books is: If you could physically put yourself into a book or series, which one would it be and why? This is my LAME ALERT. I like my life, like alot. I read tons of books but they’re almost all YA and I wouldn’t trade them for anything. The backdrop is often barely that, so none of the places seem more appealing than my town. I’d never be a teenager again for a billion gazillion dollars. The gfrown up stuff I read doesn’t do ti for me either. If I really stretch this out to any fictional place instead of only book places, then the town where the show Gilmore Girls took place is somewhere I could live, probably because I sort of already do. I live in small town Ohio and I love it. I wouldn’t trade it. I’m happy. I am also very boring. I feel like I should’ve said “I want to live at the Shire! Be a Hobbit!” or “I’d want to move to Nu Joisy and be Stephanie Plum’s sidekick, take Ranger off her hands, ya know, help a sista out.” Nope. I like it here and now. B-o-r-i-n-g. LOL

 

Parajunkee’s question of the week is : Give us five fun book-related facts about you.

This is an extremely difficult question. I sat and stared at my screen for so long I’m like last on Parajunkees list. Here it goes:

  1. I read voraciously, about 4 YA novels a week, sometimes more
  2. I write like a crazy addict. In the past 2 years, I’ve completed SEVEN novels (I am not saying they were super good ones LOL) and have significant starts on lots of others. Plus, I freuently write shorter pieces for online contests, anthology submissions, and magazines. I like to write as much as I like to read. I guess I could’ve said this and saved a lot of words. LOL
  3. Twilight brought me back to reading – something I set aside for several years while I was having my babies. Knowing Stephenie Meyer was a mother of 3 young ones inspired me to try to write something –> wow did that idea take root.
  4. YA is my obsession. I love all YA. The tension. Discovering themselves, finding love, learning to be strong, confident worthy people in their own eyes inspires me.
  5. Tuesday is my favorite day of the week because the Bookmobile comes to my neighborhood. I ditch my hole family, take co-coa or coffee to the librarians on board and I stay a while, catching up on things, leafing through books and breathing in the smell of real life tangible books.

Thanks everyone for stopping by! Leave a comment and tell me if you follow! I always follow back!!!

  • 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 http://www.howardsherman.net to find out what it is.

    Happy Hop Friday!

  • Hopping through. Stephenie Meyer inspired me to write again too. It’s nice to know that basically anyone can do it – you don’t need to have been writing for years and years. Just start whenever and get to work.
