Friday Hops 7/1

Follow Friday! #20


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

This weeks question is:
Q. ACK! Your favorite book/movie character (example Hermione Granger played by the Emma chick) just walked into the room! Who is it and what would be your first reaction? You get extra points if you include visual stimulation.
A. Hmmm... I'd have to think about book characters. But my Movie character would totally be CAPTAIN JACK! My first reaction would probably be to pass out. I LOVE HIM!




Book Blogger Hop #18

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!
Q.  What keeps you reading beyond the first few pages of a book, and what makes you want to stop reading a book and put it back on the shelf?
A. Thankfully, I haven't had to stop reading a book or put it back on the shelf lately. (YA books are awesome!)  But usually something good has to be going on in the book, or for there to be awesome characters,  in order for it to keep my attention. If I'm bored with it, it definitely goes back on the shelf.

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

  13. Stopping by from the hop! I wish I could give away books that bore me more often, but I usually have to keep reading because I want to know what happens, even if I'm not really interested :-)

  20. I'm really kicking myself for not choosing Jack Sparrow. Freaking love him. Instead I choose something incrediably embarrassing.

    Old follower hopping by. Had to comment on the pirate (mmm...just watched the fourth movie) :)

  21. I completely understand wanting to put a book back on the shelf if you're bored with it or if nothing interesting has happened within the first part. :) Otherwise, why bother reading it at all? Also, Captain Jack is hilarious! Nice choice. Have a wonderful holiday weekend!

  26. That little clip is so wackadoodle! What a nutty facial expression.

    I feel like I've been DNF'ing books a lot lately... if I'm not totally hooked by page 50, I'm moving on to something else in my impossible mountain of TBR.
