Friday Hops 3/30

Follow Friday! #51

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

Q: Do you read one book at a time or do you switch back and forth between two or more?

A. Lately, I've been really good at reading only one book at a time. Sometimes I will add in a second one if I'm on a time crunch, or if I'm bored with the first book. It gets confusing if I add more than that. :)

TGIF at GReads #18

TGIF at GReads is a Friday Feature hosted by Ginger at!

Book Blogger Retreat: If you could gather up a handful of book blogger friends to spend a weekend away talking books, where would you go? Tell us about it.

Hmmmm.... If I got to pick the place, I would say any BEACH!  OK, I'm just saying that because I'm dying to get to the beach, and what better place to relax and talk about books than at the beach??

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


  1. I tend to only read one at a time so I can really focus on that book.

    Also, the beach right now sounds like HEAVEN. We're in a colder snap of weather and I am totally dreaming of Pina Coladas and the beach.

  2. I get confused when I try to read more than one book as well!

  3. I try to stick to one book at a time too! And yeah, sometimes it can get confusing if you read more than one. :)

    Stop by my blog sometime! :D

  4. Even on a time crush I have to rally and just finish one book. Any more than that and I'm done. I just get way too confused on details. I could totally understand getting bored with a book though. I've been known to put a book aside and just start a new one if I'm just not enjoying the first.

  7. Hi & Happy Friday!

    I am reading two books at the moment but usually try to stick to the one to fully appreciate it.

    My FF,

    Have a great weekend, Sharon

  8. Hello!! I just started to read more than one at a time. I have too many on my list :D Happy Friday I am a new follower!


  9. I don't read more than one book at a time very often, either. I might put one on hold and read another one first, but most of the times.. one book only. :)

  14. New follower, Love your current read!
    Thank Krista

  15. Hi there :) just hopping through...

    If a story has a complicated plot then I read it solely otherwise, I read multiple books. Here is my choice...

  16. I'm like that too, so I have a lot of books on hand just because I get bored easily. Remember to call me if you're going to the beach!

  17. If one book really draws me in then I'll find I'm incapable of reading more than one book at once, otherwise I often have a few books on the go and will pick up whatever tickles my fancy at any one time.

    My FF.

  18. I always read one at a time so that I can give my full attention to it!

  19. Yay for another 1 book at a time person!! I am the same in my reading habits.

    Seeing a lot of beaches for tgif!! The beach doesn't sound too bad, no way would I go swimming though! I grew up watching Jaws too many times!!

    Here's my Friday Hops

    Have a GREAT weekend!

    Old Follower :)

  20. Happy Friday, Christy - I am the same way I tend to get confused if I read more that one book at a time.

    Hope you enjoy reading your books this week.

  21. I love the beach! :) And I'm a one book at a time girl, too. Although, I think I have about 10 books on my "currently reading" list on GoodReads. :)

  22. Following you again - didn't realise I'd stopped GFC for you!!
    One at a time!

  23. New Follower :)

    Yeah, you don't want to add more than 2 that's for sure. The more you read the more confusing it'll get.

  24. Reading multiple books can help with boredom. I'm a multi-reader, but it can get confusing at times.

  25. I usually only read one book at a time too, though I can usually do two as long as both books aren't review books. I get all confused if they both are and then have trouble writing the reviews. Hope you have a fabulous weekend Christy!

  26. I'm dying to get to the beach as well! It's a shame there aren't any nice ones in England. I'll have to keep saving for my holiday, I guess!

  27. Hi there!
    I actually like reading several books at a time - which one always depends on my mood!
    You can find my FF here:

    Hope you have a great weekend ;)

    BTW, I'm a new follower

  28. I agree one at a time.

  29. I'm a one-book kinda girl myself. I get confused too if I start reading too many books as once.

    And I totally agree with the beach! That's my favorite setting to read a good book, along with a nice cold drink. :)

  30. Haha, I picked the beach too! And I also read one book at a time. :)

  31. Already a follower. I usually have to books going, depending on my mood and if one can hold my interest enough to finish.

  32. Well it's sometimes easier to have one book at a time, but I'm good with two.

    here is mine

  33. I generally stick with one book at a time, mostly because I read so fast. BUT I've been working my way through the fourth book in the Game of Thrones series, which is slow-going so I need breaks.

  34. I'm bad at reading one book at a time. I actually flip flop between two books reading 50-100 pages at a time. Then, I stay with one until the end and write my review.
