Follow Friday & Blog Hop

Happy Friday! Here's our weekly opportunity for bloggers to come together and check out each others sites. Please remember to leave a comment below, along with your link so that I can check out your site, and return the favor.

If you want to participate, it's easy. To learn more and to enter, check out: Parajunkee -  Crazy for Books - and Bitten By Paranormal Romance!

Q. Do you have anyone that you can discuss books with IRL? Tell us about him/her.

I do!  Her name is Jenna and we work together. She is a UF/PNR fan like me, so every time I find a great book or series, I pass it on to her when I'm done. My favorite part of the workday is when she comes in and we compare notes on the books we're reading.  And sometimes, when one or both of us is at home and it's too hard to wait, we share tweets on the big scenes.  Talking books with a friend is so much more fun than reading alone! Plus --we're going to DragonCon together in September.  

Book Blogger Hop


Q. Pick a character from a book you are currently reading or have just finished and tell us about him/her.

I'm re-reading the Dark Days series by Jocelynn Drake.  The main character is Mira. She is a 600 year-old nightwalker who has the ablity to wield fire. She is strong and independent.  But she is learning that so many things she thought she knew about herself were lies. Her mentor has been using her and experimenting on her.  And the vampire hunter she thought was her worst enemy, may end up being her greatest ally.

Q Do you have a favorite hero, so far, this year? If-so who? 

Can I call Jerricho Barrons a hero? **swoon**




I've got a lot coming up in the next week!  First, I want to announce two big events with the very talented Jennifer Estep.  She'll be joining me and a group of my blogging buddies on TalkShoe, Sunday night at 7:00CST to talk about her Elemental Assassin series.  Then she'll be at Red Hot Books Friday, April 22 for an interview and giveaway of her new book Tangled Threads



And that's not our only giveaway next week. We'll also be giving away books in the Easter Eggstravaganza Blog Hop from April 20-25.

Hope you'll be here to join us for the fun!

I just bought Jennifer's Elemental Assassin series at my Border's clearance sale. I'm looking forward to starting it.
Reading is so much more fun when you have someone to discuss it with.
Have a great weekend!

Hey Jen!

Following back! :) Thanks for stopping by the Wyld.. I haven't tried that series of Moning's. I'm too hooked on her Highlander series. Major yumminess goings on there. =)

But I can definitely understand being hooked on Z. I just finished his book. ;)

Have a great weekend!

I wish I had a bookish friend with whom to share books with other than my mother. Although I would probably get in trouble--I tend to not give books back when I have borrowed them.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Following back.

Oh, how fun! I would love to have a friend like that to share everything with. I'm really thankful for having found Goodreads and all of these lovely bloggers, but I don't have someone to discuss with IRL.

She is the mother of four kids one of which has autism, she shares her love of reading with her kids as well as anyone who will listen. She and I tend to have the same view points on the books we read with the exception of twilight she is a wolf girl and I am a SOUTHERN vampire girl.

I just wanted to stop on by for the hop. I started my blog just so I would have somewhere to rant about my love of books. Isn't it great to be able to share this with others? I'm actually luck now that both my hubby and mother have been getting into my books lately. So I get to share with people online and in real life. If you have a chance, please make sure to check out my blog as I have two giveaways running. Thanks! A Book Obsession..

Hopping through! The Dark Days series sounds really interesting - I like the twist about the enemy actually being the friend and the mentor not being the good guy.

Here's my Book Blogger Hop: 4/15-4/18 post!

Hello,
Happy Friday! or Saturday actually because I'm late.
I haven't really read a book this year that has stuck out to me. Maybe Dimitri from Vampire Academy?

Have a great weekend!!
