Book Blogger Hop: June 3rd - 6th & FF (20) & TGIF (3)

Book Blogger Hop
Book 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 comes is:

“Share your favorite post from the last month and tell us why it’s close to your heart!”


My answer: I think my favourite post was one I did for Armchair BEA - 'Who Am I', It was the first proper personal post I did and really put myself into it and announced my presence to the world. I showed you all the person behind the blog and got some really nice responses from it. I also enjoyed reading other people's posts and felt like I was meeting people and friends.


Follow Friday

Follow Friday is an opportunity to discover and follow other book related blogs! Want to join? Check it out at Parajunkee.

This week's question comes from Amy from BackseatReader

Q. 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

My Answer: I knew nothing about a Zombie Apocalypse so I am frightfully unprepared, but now I know, thanks for the heads up, I will grab food supplies and turn my Garage into a safe house. I'll collect weapons such as bats and axes and prop them by all the doors. No Zombie will get past me!!! In terms of Mel Gibson, he can do what he wants, I just won't go to the cinema! lol



This is a new meme hosted by GReads!

This Friday's Question:

Book Love: Do you share your books with others? Who was the last person you sent a book to?
My Answer: I do share books with others, mostly friends and family members. The last book I shared was 'Furnace: Execution' by Alexander Gordon Smith. I passed it on to my colleague at work as we are both crazy fans of the series and it was the only one she hadn't read. I also share books by doing giveaways on my blog. :D
(I will do my next Giveaway when I reach 200 followers, only 17 to go! So check back regularly)

 Happy Hopping, have a great weekend everyone!!!

Zombie Apocalypse is so overrated, but at least we'll all be somewhat prepared to the mass amounts of conversations being had. Great post & great blog! I'm a new follower, I'm here:

Deb Nance at Readerbuzz said...

I wish I were as brave as you. I don't really know much about Zombies. I hope you will save us all.

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!

Bex said...

Sounds like a good plan there! How about running, lol? But then, there's always the question of where to finally hide. Yeah, I'm not prepared for that, lol.

I did think I was following, but obviously not. Sigh! New follower here. :D Happy weekend!

Like you, I didn't know to be prepared for zombies. I'm thinking I was better when I didn't know.

Alexis - not knowing can always be best, as they say ignorance is bliss. :D
