Book Blogger Hop: July 29-Aug 1 & FF (28) & TGIF (11)


Book Blogger Hop 
 Blogger Hop is hosted by Crazy-for-Books and is an awesome way to for book bloggers to interact and find each other. Such a wonderful idea! There's a new question every week that all the participating blogs have to answer.

This week's question is:
“Highlight one book you have received this week (for review, from the library, purchased at the store, etc.) that you can’t wait to dig into!”

My Answer: ooh i actually got a few books this week but the one I can't wait to read is:

Shimmer by Alyson Noel, this is the second book in the Riley Bloom series. I just finished "Everlasting' the last book in her Immortals series and I love her style. I love Riley as a character so am looking forward to this one. :D

from Amazon;
Having solved the matter of the Radiant Boy, Riley, Buttercup, and Bodhi are enjoying a little time-off. But then Riley encounters a young ghost named Rebecca. Despite Rebecca’s sweet appearance, Riley soon learns she’s not at all what she seems. As the daughter of a former plantation owner, Rebecca is furious about being murdered during the slave revolt of 1733. Her uncontrollable anger is keeping other ghosts, who also died in the revolt, trapped in a shimmering bubble. And when Bodhi and Buttercup inadvertently fall into Rebecca's trap, Riley is the only one who can save them.

This week's question feature is 
The Book Addicted Girl

Q. Let's step away from books for a second and get personal. What T-Shirt slogan best describes you? 


My Answer: 

 Hehe, I am always hyper and a bit crazy, it's best not to annoy me, it just makes me go extra loopy!!! lol


This meme is hosted by GReads!

This Friday's Question: 
Character Envy: If you could be one character from a book, 
who would you choose & why?
My Answer: I know I answered this one before a few weeks ago on one of the other meme's but I can't remember what I put. This time I think I'll go for Claire from the Morganville Vampires, think that would be interesting - a super cute boyfriend, a crazy boss, and a town full of vampires. what could go wrong? :D

 Happy Hopping, have a great weekend everyone!!!

Like your tshirt. Our favorite quote around our house is "what's the status? You're annoying"
I haven't read that series, but have heard great things. Thanks for sharing.

Fun choice! I think I pick a different character every time I answer this one. :) And I could totally use that shirt, especially when my son is driving me bonkers.

Have a great weekend!

I loved this week’s question! I’ve made so many friends in the book blog world and am really impressed with so many blogs it was hard to hunker down and make a choice.

But I did it! I’m shining the spotlight on a Jersey girl! Hop on over to my blog at to find out who she is and discover her amazing book blog.
