Friday Hops - 5/20

Follow Friday! #14
Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee. It's a great way to meet new blogger friends!

This weeks question is:
Q. It's circle time. Time for us to open up and share. Can you tell us FIVE quirky habits or things about you? We all have them...

1. I am a borderline introvert. I have the hardest time meeting and talking with new people. People don't understand this either, and just think I'm being a snob.

2. I am so totally ADD. I have the attention span of a gnat sometimes!

3. I love, love, love Pirates of the Caribbean! I can't get enough of Captain Jack!

4. I gave up eating meats and drinking caffeinated sodas a long time ago, but for some reason I can't give up Sweets! I have such a huge sweet tooth, it drives me crazy!

5. I am a borderline TreeHugger. I love recycling, and conserving. Even small things help our planet! There are SO many more things I want to do if we had the money. (Solar panels, hybrid car...) I work with what I can!


Book Blogger Hop #12
Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Crazy-For-Books.com. It's a great way to meet new people and friends around the blogworld!

Today's question is:

"If you were given the chance to spend one day in a fictional world (from a book), which book would it be from and what would that place be?"

Wow! This weeks questions are really making me think! Let's see... I'd totally visit the worlds of Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, The Mortal Instruments, The Iron Fey...


Thanks for stopping by everyone! Please leave a comment with your link so I can follow you back!

  1. Yeah I understand the snob thing. I'm not an introvert exactly but when I first meet people I'm really quiet...kind of shy. People usually think I'm snobby because of this. I just have to get to know people before I open up.

  2. Hi Christy

    I'm with you on the tree hugger thing, I recycle everything that I can, I have different bags and boxes for everything. I'm currently looking into solar panels as I think you can get a grant in the UK to help pay for them.

  3. I love sweets too! That's hard to give up. I would love to live in The Iron Fey world except I would have to fight Meghan for Ash :)

  4. Choosing a world to spend a day in was pretty hard! I'm a total introvert as well. I have an extremely hard time trying to talk to people at first--mostly with new people. But with my friends I can be a total chatterbox! I'm just weird...

    Here's my Friday Hops

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  6. Wow, you have a lot of different worlds to visit, and I'm sure you'd have some amazing adventures in each of them! :D And I totally agree with you on us doing our part to help the Earth. Every little bit helps even if it's just using reusable bags to shop.

    Have a great weekend and happy reading!

    I LOVE Captain Jack as well. In fact, my 6 year old daughter seems to have caught Captain Jack fever as well--she really hasn't seen the movies, but she loves the previews :)

    Have a great weekend!

  11. Thanks for stopping by and following my blog. Following you now too! I am SO with you on Pirates of the Caribbean. Very much looking forward to seeing the new movie and I definitely have the hots for Captain Jack Sparrow!

  12. I'm a vegetarian and I don't drink soda, either, but sweets - nope! I'll never give those up! And I'm also crazy about recycling and conservation like you so maybe I'm a bit of a hippie. I'm okay with that, though!

    Percy Jackson and Iron Fey - great choices! I'll be a stowaway. ;)

  13. Your #1 - that is me in a nutshell. I am always trying to push my boundaries and put myself in situations that are outside of my comfort zone. But I would be much happier at home with my family!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I take quite awhile to come out of my shell around new people, my problem is small talk, I just can't get the handle of it, so I tend to stand there in awkward silence!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Thank you for following- its nice to have one now LOL- being the new kid on the block is hard. Im a lover of YA books also..Im ok with the treehugging hippie thing..I dont eat meat either..but soda..oh my downfall...followed as well hope we have interesting chats in the near future

  19. People think I'm a snob all the time just because I'm an introvert and then I feel bad and then they actually get to know me and realize I'm just quiet and feel awkward around them lol. (Long sentence!) And I'm with you on the ADD!!!! Thanks for stopping by!

  23. Thank you for the follow, I am now following you as well.

    Most of my closest friends are online due to the fact that I have a hard time talking to and meeting new people in person. I have no problem typing or writing but for some reason speaking, I just clam up.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Wow, we have so much in common! I'm an introvert too, but I think people just take me for awkward sometimes. Makes making friends tough sometimes.

    Thanks for stopping by and saying hello this morning. I'm definitely a new follower! Here's my FF.

  25. I know what you mean about being an introvert. I've been accused of being a snob in the past, too. I'm really working on it, though.

    And there's nothing wrong with a sweet tooth. Can't take ALL the fun outta life. :)

  27. I'm also an introvert. Although once I've met a new person and if I've had continued exposure to them, I get more comfortable with them over time. But the meeting part is always hard.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I'm seriously like an introvert as well. My husband makes fun of me all the time for it. I absolutely hate going out. I would much rather stay home with a good book or my computer. lol

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and following, I'm following you as well. VERY cute blog, I love it!

  30. Thanks for the visit. I've added you as well.

    I, too, am an introvert so I know exactly what you mean

  31. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I think I'm a introverted extrovert. I want to be outgoing, but find myself drawing in on myself - also I hate crowds.

    ReplyDelete
  32. If solar panels were affordable, I would totally have some. I think they are awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  33. You must be excited for the new POTC film that's being released soon. And I also picked Harry Potter...such an intriguing world! Just dropping through...New follower! And thanks for stopping by my blog!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I know how you feel. I have a really bad sweet tooth and it takes a lot of self restraint for me not to eat sweets all day. It's so bad that when I do buy treats for the kids, I buy things they like but I don't so I won't be tempted to eat it.

    I'm also a bit of an introvert. I'm a little shy when I first meet people and I prefer to stay home rather than go out.

  36. I too have a terrible sweet tooth.
    Thanks for stopping by and I'm following you back.

  37. I always get the, oh that can't possibly be true. But I can be terribly shy when meeting new people. To the point where I just prefer to observe rather than even attempt to approach. I like to do my own thing so it works for me. Big POTC fan too. YAY US!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I'm always afraid people with think I'm a snob too. It's just really hard to talk to people :-)

    Have a great weekend!

  39. Hi Reader Bee! Cool name. This has to be the sweetest looking blog I've seen! Very refreshing, and I can't wait to read more posts! I'm an introvert as well, not too good at meeting new people. Usually they have to take the lead, but I think I've gotten a lot better since I was in school.

  41. I’ve seen a lot of great picks and gathered some fresh titles to add to my ever-growing TBR list. My answer will probably stun most people because the world I picked is a place most people would be scared to death of and try to escape from. Me? I want in.

  43. Those Pirates of the Caribbean movies are great! I haven't watched them in a long time, I feel like I should do a PotC marathon!

  44. I have the tendency to be an introvert as well. I always think people view me as a snob since I can be so quiet. Here's my FF: http://thoughtsatoneinthemorning.blogspot.com/2011/05/book-blogger-hop-1-follow-friday-4-in.html ^_^ (new follower)

  51. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! I'm glad someone else feels the same way about cotton balls as I do.. ughhhh! Probably I could write 10 more quirky things that make me feel like cotton balls, but one was enough.. lol.

    I'm a little ADD too, especially when it comes to the radio. Geesh! Also, I love recycling and helping out our planet for sure. Good stuff. And new Captain Jack today!! Going to see it? Have fun!

  53. I love sweets too! It's so difficult to give up, so I try to limit my intake to one a day (a tub of ice cream for Monday, a box of chocolates for Tuesday, a big pack of Skittles for Wednesday... Just kidding!). And I'm sort of introverted too, but just in the beginning. When I'm just getting to know people, I tend not to speak much. But once I get comfortable, the shyness flies out the window!

    Thanks for dropping by my blog and for following! I'm a new follower too!

    Have a great weekend!

  55. Hi Christy, thanks for stopping by at my blog. I'm now following you too. Your blog is so cute and uncluttered. I really love your header :)

    I consider myself an introvert too. It's hard for me to talk and comfortable when meeting new people. I'm not really the type that can confidently approach a stranger. And yeah, many people think I'm a snob. It bothers me sometimes but I'm trying to make peace with myself about it. (^.^)
