Friday Hops 8/19

Follow Friday! #27

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

Q. If you could write yourself a part in a book, what book would it be and what role would you play in that book?
A.Hmmm... There are quite a few books I would love to be a part of. Jane Austen is one of my favorite authors, so I would love to be a character in one of her books. Preferably Pride and Prejudice, and I would love to be the love interest of Mr. Darcy! ROFL!

Another book I would love to be in would be Mara Dyer, so I could meet Noah. (Hubba-Hubba!). :)

Book Blogger Hop #25

Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by It's a great way to meet new people and friends around the blogworld!

Q. “What’s the LONGEST book you’ve ever read?”
(Note: I’m putting one caveat on this question. You aren’t allowed to say the Bible, Torah, Qur’an, or other religious/spiritual text.)

A. Hmmm, good question. (And one that I don't have an answer to!) Probably Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. I read it a couple years ago, and at 850 pages, it was MASSIVE!

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


  1. I would love to be a part of Pride and Prejudice and be able to wear those clothes, and of course, talk to Mr. Darcy! Great answer!


  2. I don't think I could be in a classic book, those dresses for one thing! Having to look perfect every second of the day.. the corsets or girdles! No thanks! LOL

    Cute blog!

  12. I really wouldn't mind being a love interest for Mr. Darcy either! *swoon* Or maybe I could find some previously undiscovered bachelor in Austen's world and claim him for myself:)

  13. Happy Friday! I'm an old follower :)

    OMG I know!! I would so LOVE to be Elizabeth Bennett and live happily ever after in that big mansion with Mr.Darcy and have all those sisters :) That was my first answer to this one!

    I haven't read the Mara Dyer book yet, but I'm definitely looking forward to it-- and this Noah guy! ;)

    You can see my FF post for this week at the link below-- would love if you stopped by! Have a great weekend :)

  14. Sign me up for Mara Dyer too please!! Great choices!

  15. Lol, I think a lot of people would want to be in P&P! Not me, personally - I don't think I could wear those dresses all day! :P Thanks for sharing :)

  16. Noah? What? Who? I want to read it right now!!! :-)

    Have a great weekend.

  17. I keep seeing the Outlander books show up in the Hop -- and I haven't read those, so maybe I'd better check one out. :)

    Happy Hopping!

  18. I've been wanting to read The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer. I can't wait to finally get a copy.
    I read the Outlander series too, those books WERE massive, but so wonderful it didn't seem like they were long enough!

    Donna @ The Happy Booker

  19. Oh, I forgot how massive Outlander was. Though I love the book.

    Please come and have a look at My Hop

  20. Outlander seems to keep popping up on many people's lists!

    Happy reading.

    new follower here, cute page!
    here's my hop:

  22. Girl, I'm right there with you! I'm lucky I married a Mr. Darcy, but I would LOVE to be in Pride and Prejudice. As Elizabeth of course. :D

  23. Do the Norton Anthologies from college lit. classes count as longest books read? I've had to read a ton of those over the years.

  24. i'd love to be my own sort of Katniss character. I recently dyed my blonde hair brown, and now I feel all katniss-y lol! (I WISH!)

    Followin you! Hope you'll come by my blog and tell me what your fav book of 2011 has been so far!

  25. I really need to up P&P on my list so I can see why Mr. Darcy is so interesting to so many people.

  26. I went with fun. LOL. I think my longest book was The Stand by Stephen King.

  27. I gave your answer to the FF Hop, how's that for serendipity. I love Jane books to and you right, P&P is the best. I've been through it a number of times and I love it every time.

  28. I haven't finished Outlander as I had it checked out from the library and they had it marked as a one-week speed read which it definitely was not. And I read fast. I have it on my Kindle now as it was available a while back as a free download. One day!


Thanks for stopping by! :)
