Friday Hops!



Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. It's a great way to meet new blogger friends. This weeks question is:


Q: Define what characteristics your favorite books share. Do they all have a kickass heroine or is the hot love interest the Alpha Male?

I love all sorts of characters and books. Sometimes it's the hot bad boy (Hi Noah Shaw), and sometimes it's the amazing female character (Lola, I mean YOU) and sometimes it's just the story touches you. There isn't one thing, it's about it all working together and the story pulling you in.


TGIF at GReads! is a weekly blog hop hosted by Ginger from GReads

When you're browsing goodreads, the library, or another blogger's reviews, what grabs your attention to make you want to read it?

I tend to fall for the cover of a book first. I am a sucker for a pretty cover. However, if the synopsis doesn't grab me right away that pretty cover isn't going to matter much. I also trust the opinions of my fellow blogger friends and have picked up books because of them.

Happy weekend and Happy reading!

I love comments. Thank you for stopping by my blog and thank you even more for leaving me a comment.

I have decided to make this an awards free blog. I appreciate the gesture, and love that you thought of my blog, however I simply can't pass them along as required.
