Follow Friday! #57

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

Q: Summer Break is upon us! What would be the perfect vacation spot for you to catch up on your reading & relax?

A.  A Beach.
Any beach, with a shade tree and a hammock.

Enough said. :)

TGIF at GReads #24

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

A Book Blogger is Born: What made you decide to start your very own book blog?

I started blogging as a way to share my thoughts with some friends on the books I had been reading at the time. The more I blogged, and the more lovely people that I met, the more I fell in love with the book blogging community! It's an awesome place to be. :)

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

  3. I absolutely agree! I started blogging mainly to be able to talk books, too, but the more people I met, the more I realized that despite the drama, bookblogging is just great. :)

  8. I don't normally get much reading done on beaches (although I try), but I think it'd be perfect with a hammock! <3

  10. Seeing lots of beaches today! That wasn't my pick though.

    I really like seeing everyone's story of how their blog came to be though! Mine wasn't as interesting. It all started with a contest, that I didn't even win!

    Here's my Friday Hops

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  13. New Follower. Ohh how I want to read in a hammock! :-P

  14. Sounds nice and relaxing.

  15. I think it's so interesting that so many people love to read on the beach. When I go to a beach, I'm in the water swimming. I love the ocean and love being in it. But, with that being said, I do like to read in the tub, so that's kind of like the beach, lol.

  16. Beautiful spot! I'd like to be there right now...

  19. I'm in complete agreement with you about the people involved in the blogging community. :) I've met some of the sweetest people online that I would just love to sit and have coffee with just to talk about books. Hope you have a marvelous weekend, Christy!

  20. Beautiful picture! I'd love to just lie in a hammock on the beach all day. Great answers!

    My TGIF/Follow Friday

  21. Hammocks are always the best, in my opinion. Reading is 10-times better when you're in one.

    Have a great Friday!
