Friday Hops 8/12

Follow Friday! #26

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

Q. How has your reading habits changed since you were a teen? or If you are still a teen what new genres are you in love with currently?
A. When I was a teen, I NEVER wanted to read. (I did for school, but that is about it.) There was so much other stuff to do. NOW, I would rather stay home and read than do ANYTHING else. haha  I think if the YA genre was this awesome when I was a teen, I might have read more. I like to think so, anyways.


Book Blogger Hop #24

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. “Let’s talk crazy book titles! Highlight one or two (or as many as you like!) titles in your personal collection that have the most interesting titles! If you can’t find any, feel free to find one on the internet!”

A.The first book with a crazy title that popped into my head was:
Go The F**K to Sleep by Adam Mansbach. I don't have this book in my collection, not sure if I would want it or not, but that's a crazy title!

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

  4. Hopping through. I read as a teen but not like I do now. I mostly stayed home when I was young but wasted my time. Now I stay home and read.

  8. I was actually just talking about this! It's like naptime. You couldn't pay me to take a nap as a child, but now I would pay you to allow me to take a nap.

    I think it's the same with reading. As a child we often don't cherish as much as you should.

  10. I'm the complete opposite. I have had my nose buried in a book my entire life.
    Here's my HOP for this week.

  11. *sighs* YA in the last few years - amazing! Before the age of 12, books weren't a blip on my radar! But then high school began and somehow one good book turned into this!

    Here's my Follow Friday. Have a nice weekend!

  12. I was the same. I hated reading as teen, mainly because of the books we got forced to read in high school. There's so much more variety now.

  14. Whoops! Think I didn't post my comment right!

    I was always an avid reader, even as a teen. But back then finding paranormals was extremely hard!

    Love the title of your book choice! Seen it in the blogosphere and love it for its title!

  16. I've always liked reading, but I never used to read as much, or as many genres. I used to real almost solely paranormal, but I read loads more genres now! And lol a that title, I've never heard of that book before!

  17. The YA genre was not this awesome when I was a teenager, I wish it had been. I did read a lot though.

    Go The F%#k to Sleep was actually given to someone at a baby shower I went to. It seems to be a popular gift for parents to be. The title is hilarious though especially when you consider it looks like a children's book.

  24. I'm the same way. I never wanted to read either. I didn't read for school either. I avoided reading at all costs. I'm glad I'm jumped on the reading bandwagon, finally.

  25. Hello Christy!

    I am just popping in from Parajunkies Follow Friday blog hop! I love your website. Very nicely done. I also read much more YA now than in my teens, but I think it is because there is many more good YA books out there now, than when I was a teen. :-)

  27. Hello Christy!

    I am just popping in from Parajunkies Follow Friday blog hop! I did listen to 'Go the F__K to sleep' it was narrated by Samuel L. Jackson. At first I thought it would be hilarious, then I just thought it was a little too much in the 'F' department.

  29. Your answer to the first question would be my exact answer as well! You couldn't get me to read much in high school or college outside of the required reading, but now I just want to sit home on my days off and bury my nose in a book:) I'm a happy book nerd! Hope you have a great weekend Christy!
