TGIF/Hoppin' Time...Happy Canada Day!

Book Blogger Hop

Question of the Week: “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 keep reading for a lot of reasons. Anticipation..Dying to know what will happen next. A character that I bonded with, etc. I don't usually not finish books but if I absolutly can't take it anymore it's usually because of unlikable characters, the storyline or if I don't enjoy the genre. But I like to give all books a chance :)





Q. 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.

This is a HARD one! Ok, I guess I would squeel just a little bit seeing Edward Cullen/Robert Pattinson walk into a room. My first reaction would definitely be a jaw drop, then a cool recovery to act like I'm used to hansome brits/vampires being in my presence :D.

  8. Edward's a popular character, isn't it? :) For me, I'd LOVE to meet Howl from Howl's Moving Castle!! I love the animated film adaptation just as much as the book.

    I also love to give books a chance, though there have been books that I never read past the first pages.

    New follower. I hope you'll take the time to check out my Follow Friday and Book Blogger Hop posts.

  9. Hopping by to say "HI!" I'm with you- if I stop reading, it has something to do with the characters, storyline and writing. For me, I don't usually stop unless all three are not right for me.
