Book Blogger Hop & Follow Friday - June 3

Book Blogger Hop
It's Friday and that means blog hops!  Until now, I've only been participating in Follow Friday, but seeing the Book Blogger Hop buttons all over the web has inspired me to join the fun! Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Crazy-for-Books and is a way to meet new people and get to know everyone a bit better. Just go to her site, get the button, answer the question, and put your info in the linky, easy as that!

This week's question: Share your favorite post from the last month and tell us why it’s close to your heart!
I think my favorite post from May was my Reflection: YA Lit post. I enjoyed discussing the evolution of YA lit, which has become something quite close to my heart as I read a heck of a lot of YA lit now a days, even though I'm in my early thirties. If you haven't read it, go check it out and tell me what you think, I'm quite proud of it!

Follow Friday is a weekly blog hop hosted by Parajunkee's View, as most of you know. The object is to follow the weekly blogger, answer the weekly question, and link up with others through the linky on Parajunkee's site.

This week's featured blogger is Amy from Backseat Reader. Go, check her out and say hello!

This week's question: What are you doing to prepare for an upcoming zombie apocalypse and/or the return of Mel Gibson to the silver screen? (Both of which could be terrifying.)
Let's see, to prepare for the zombie apocalypse I'm stocking up on Twinkies! I have it on good authority (does Woody Harrelson count as "good authority"?) that Twinkies can survive anything, and really, who can resist that spongy golden cake and cream filling? So, yes, Twinkies.  Oh, and I've just learned from this week's featured blogger, Amy, that the CDC has guidelines, so I'm taking them under advisement... but definitely Twinkies.
As for Mel Gibson... there is no way to prepare for that. There just isn't.  I think I'd prefer the zombies!
This week's questions were particularly fun and I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's responses. Have a lovely Friday!


  1. Your YA Lit post was very good! I remember my school libraries having mostly those R.L. Stine book, and other such similar books. YA has definitely evolved, thankfully.

  2. New follower here from the hop! I hope you'll come visit me at Red Hot Books.


  3. Just doing a blog hop drive by and snooping through your blog. I love the Hunger Games button. I just heard that Donald Sutherland is going to be in the movie. Yep. I heard that. :)

    Anyway, happy hoppy Friday!

  4. I'm returning the hop! I enjoyed your YA post, and I think Twinkies are a great idea!

  5. I always heard that twinkies last forever, but how do they know that?

    Was already a follower :-)

  6. Your favorite post was a good one! When I was younger, all I could see out there was Sweet Valley High and Baby Sitter's Club. It's nice to have some in between choices. ^_^

  7. As the saying goes – the best defense is a good offense. I’ve got that covered! My preparations for the zombie apocalypse are not just intricate, they’re stylish. I’m not talking “last stand” stuff here. I mean to lure in the zombies and slaughter them wholesale while we sip champagne and watch.

    How am I going to do that? Follow me back to my blog at and read all about it.

    Thank G-d it’s Follow Friday!

  8. YA is good....I just finished a book sent by the author on my blog...the book was: THE CARD by Jim Devitt.

    I like this week's question.


  9. I'm stopping by via the Hop. I hope you will visit my blog, Readerbuzz. I always follow back.
    And I am doing a monthly giveaway. This month: Anna and the French Kiss!

  10. I don't need Twinkies, but I would need a decent supply of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. As long as I had my Reese's, I could survive just about anything :)

    Glad to have found you via the Hop!

  11. I prefer the zombies too.
    Thanks for stopping by and have a good weekend.
