Book Blogger Hop & Follow Friday!

Book Blogger Hop is a fun meme hosted by Crazy For Books. Enter your link and go hop around other blogs that are out there, ready to be discovered!

I'm enjoying having no school., especially since I get to stay up very late. =) And getting to read in silence since no one is in the house in the morning.

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?

I don't think I've ever started a book and then stopped. I tend to want to always finish the book I'm reading, even if it takes me months to finish. If I like it or not just depends if I'm enjoying it and I'm eager to know more about what happens to the characters. =)

To join the fun and make now book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:

1.Follow the Follow My Book Blog Friday Host { Parajunkee.com } and any one else you want to follow on the list.
2.Follow our Featured Bloggers
3.Put your Blog name & URL in the Linky thing.
4.Grab the button up there and place it in a post, this post is for people to find a place to say hi in your comments
5.Follow Follow Follow as many as you can

ACK! Your favorite book/movie character (example Hermione Granger played by the Emma chick) just walked into the room! Who is it and what would be your first reaction? You get extra points if you include visual stimulation.

Picking a favorite book/movie character is really hard so I'll have to pick a book and a movie character!! My book character would have to be Rose from the Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead. I could definitely learn some moves from her!

My movie character would be Jack Sparrow! I love how he can both be very smart or very not smart! I would probably just freak out and not believe he was actually there!

If you're visiting, make sure you leave your link and I'll make sure to visit your blog!

  6. Wow, I don't finish books all the time, especially lately, for some reason.
    I'll never forget the first book that I didn't finish. Johnny Tremaine. That book was so awful! I plowed through it, but finally gave up with only 50 pages or so left.

  7. 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!

  13. 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!

  14. I'm with you, I have to finish a book once I've started too.

    Hopping through via Parajunkee. I'm having a giveaway on my blog this weekend, so please stop by!
