Hoppin' time!

Book Blogger Hop

Question of the Week: "If you could physically put yourself into a book or series…which one would it be and why?"

I just recently read 'Wake Unto me"(Review below) and absolutly LOVED it! It was so magical and suspensful. The romance was page-turning. It would be awesome to physical live what Caitlyn experienced in that book. I wouldn't might entering the 'Twilight' world either. It wouldn't be too bad meeting Edward, Jacob or Dr. Cullen ;)



 
Question of the Week: Inspired by the inane twitter trend of #100factsaboutme, give us five BOOK RELATED silly facts about you.
I had a lot of fun taking part in that on Twitter! Now, 5 book related facts about me:

1. I loved reading as a child but once I hit about middle school I stopped for some reason. The Twilight Saga and Nicholas Sparks re-invented my love for reading

2. I love reading at the gym. The gym is my "Me" time and reading just adds to the experience. Makes the elliptical a lot more enjoyable!

3. Sometimes I like the movie more than the book. For example, The Time Traveler's wife and The Notebook. I loved both books but I liked the movie more.

4. I'm ashamed to admit this but I haven't read The Mortal Instruments series or The Harry Potter series but I do own both sets. *embarassed*

5. I have no idea how many books are waiting to be read from my bookshelf. I'm to nervous to count, I feel bad for all of them:( But they will get read!!


Happy hopping bookworms! Be sure to leave your link so I can visit back. Have a great weekend!

  11. I love the question this week. I will always have a special place in my heart for the Twilight Saga as I started reading it when I was in labour with my 2nd daughter and had the entire series finished by the time she turned 6 weeks old!

  16. 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!

  17. I went through the same thing as you! I loved reading in elementary school but I stopped in middle school and started again because of Twilight. As a kid, I fell in love with reading because of Harry Potter! You need to get on that! And TMI too :)

    Here's my Follow Friday & Hop!

  18. Oh me too... I loved to read in elementary, but in middle/high school I barely read anything. I missed out on SO much! I'm glad to be getting back into it. :)
