Feature and Follow, TGIF, and Blogger Hop Friday 7/29


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


A.  Something with the following illustration on it:

Book Blogger Hop


Q. 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!

Fury
A. I just download Fury by Elizabeth Miles from the Simon and Schuster Galley Grab and I am so excited to read it! Mainly because the cover looks freaking awesome.



Q. Character Envy: If you could be one character from a book, who would you choose & why?


A. Well, as per the theme of my blog, I already connect a lot with Alice. But since I already feel like her at times, if I could be anyone, it would be Kahlan Amnell from the Sword of Truth series. She's hot. She's powerful. And she kicks ass.

  15. You should definitely be a librarian. It's the best job ever. Right now, I'm on an indefinite library sabbatical but I miss the job thoroughly. 

    Thanks for your compliments on the blog! I look forward to library post, and I'm totally cool with you hitting me up with a link.

    Have a great weekend, Trish!

  27. I’m seeing a lot of single answer responses with Twilight being by far the most popular choice.   I really must analyze all the elements of that series that send girls ga-ga.  Such studies are  a part of the never-ending "code breaking” we males need to continuously execute to understand and relate with the fairer sex.

    I’ve cracked about 80% of the code.  I will continue cracking the code until I reach 100% success.  Then I’ll write a  book for men and become a billionaire overnight.

    BUT I DIGRESS....

    I’ve got four different series I can read over and over again.  Three of them were written by deceased authors and three of them are fantasy adventures.

    Follow me back to my blog at http://www.howardsherman.net  and find out how far off the beaten track I’ve gone with my favorite book series!

    Thank God it’s Follow Friday!

  28. Thanks for stopping by!


    Please don't use the Twilight formula. It is really bad that girls idolize a creepy, controlling, stalker boyfriend in Edward Cullen. ;)

    Also, girls are people with nuance and depth that can't be contained in any sort of code. But I think I see what you mean.

    Our patriarchal society reinforces subjugation in girls, and idolizes girls with passive personalities who will just live for a man who is there to control and "protect" them. Twilight doesn't help. I wrote a little bit about why I hate Twilight in this Follow Friday:http://www.larissahammond.com/2011/09/follow-me-this-friday-unless-you-know.html
