This week's question feature is from
MotherLode

Q: In light of 11.11.11 and Veteran’s Day tell us about your favorite soldier and how he or she is saving the world. Fictional or real life.

My Answer: I don't really know any soldiers personally. One of my colleagues at work has a son out in Iraq, and I know how proud yet worried she is of him. So as I don't know any - I just want to say I appreciate everything they all do for us and I hope they return safely. 

 

TGIF!

This Friday's Question:
 
Love-Hate Relationship: Which characters from a book do you love to hate?
 

 My Answer: ooh, there are so many.

- Lord Voldemort from Harry Potter, he is so dark and evil, but I can't help but love his appearances in the books.

- Count Olaf from Series of Unfortunate Events - he is so sneaky and creepy and a real baddy. Love it. Especially Jim Carey's interpretation in the film.

- President Snow in the Hunger Games this man is pure bad news.

- Lord Vengeance from Skulduggery Pleasant. These books are amazing and need a good baddy and they've got it.

- Madam Coulter from the Northern Lights. She makes my skin crawl, she acts all nice but is dangerous. I love to hate her. 

There are probably more but that's enough for now.


Happy Hopping, have a great weekend everyone!!!

Snow absolutely, he is so hateful. But by the end of the series I despised Coin even more, ick!
