Bk Blgr Hop: Oct 14th-17th & FF (39) & TGIG (22)

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: 
“What is your favorite spooky book (i.e. mystery/suspense, thriller, ghost story, etc.)?”

My Answer: I am a total wimp when it comes to scary stories. I can't do horrors or ghost stories. About the scariest book I have read was 'The Spooks Apprentice' by Joseph Delaney. I read these a few years ago when I was about 14/15 years old and they did creep me out. I still love the series and am hoping to get the new one that has just come out. They are still quite spooky.

This week's question feature is from
“Confuzzled” Shannon McGee

 Q. If you could have characters from a particular book meet and form an epic storyline with characters from a particular TV series, which would you choose and why?

My Answer: ooh what a question, I think I would have wizards from Harry Potter land in the world of Merlin, as magic is banned in Camelot I can imagine some very exciting battles, but the wizards would win them round in the end.

This Friday's Question:
Show & Tell: Where do you grab a book and get lost in it? Show us your favorite spot you like to read at.

My Answer: I tend to read anywhere, I always have a book with me and I can literally lose myself in a book wherever I am. I'm at work in the day and I do sports every evening so I'm out a lot so I've had to get used to reading anywhere.
I read a lot in my lunch break at work in the staff room, But the place I do most of my reading is on the sofa/couch at home.

It's not much, just your standard sofa. I sit curled up in the corner, as you can see it's where I am writing this right now with my laptop on the arm of the sofa.

Happy Hopping, have a great weekend everyone!!!

Amber (Books of Amber) said...

Mixing Harry Potter and Camelot/Merlin would be an excellent idea! I've not watched the series yet, but I am definitely going to soon. I'm just imagining Dumbledore and Merlin having an epic battle now. XD

Your sofa looks very comfy - I always have a book with me too, either a "real" book or at least one on my phone.

Sofas are the best places to read. Unfortunately, I can't read during my lunchtime because I'm a teacher--but oh, how I wish I could. I try to make up for it by snatching a minute here and there. Stoplights, grocery store know the drill.

hehe thanks Nina

Amber - Merlin rocks! You should really watch it.

Anja - It's not bad, nice place to get lost in a book.

Rubita - I do some of my best reading in my lunch break so I feel for you. But I too snatch every minute I can.
