Friday Hops!

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

Q: Fight! Fight! If you could have two fictional characters battle it out (preferably from books), who would they be and who do you think would win? about two people capable of amazing magic. Voldemort vs Gandalf. I think it might be a pretty epic showdown. I am not sure who would win, I would hope Gandalf though.

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

This weeks question is

Book Blogger Influences: Has there been a particular book blogger who's influenced what you read? Share with us a review/book blog that convinced you to pick up a certain book.

I am so easily influenced to pick up a book. I add books all the time due to people raving about them.

Here are some of the bloggers who have turned me on to new books

Christy @ The Reader Bee

I adore Christy's reviews, and there have been numerous books that I have wanted to grab after reading them. I love talking about books with her and we tend to have the same taste. Her review style is wonderful  and she highlights the important the hotness of the kissing :)

Brodie @ Eleusinian Mysteries

Brodie's reviews are EPIC! Her enthusiasm for certain books (Storm for one) has made me add more books that I can count to my ever growing reading pile. If you haven't read her review for Insurgent or so immediately.

Kelly @ KellyVision

Kelly's review of I Hunt Killers literally made me run and get the book! I am dying to read it after her super amazing review for it! Kelly writes thoughtful, and insightful reviews that tend to make me want to read even more books.

Evie @ Bookish

Evie's reviews tend to make me chuckle. Her humour is an amazing part to her reviews. When she really loves a book she will make you want to read it for sure, and when she doesn't....well she's equally compelling the other way as well.

Happy Weekend!

  16. I'm ashamed to admit I've never read or watched LoTR :S But I don't really want Voldy to win, because he's kind of an ass, so GANDALF FTW!!

    Awwww Kathy! You're seriously giving me the warm and fuzzies. Hehe, I'm glad my enthusiasm for Storm is working... one COULD call it persistant nagging, but I like the word 'enthusiasm' better :D

    I LOVE YOU! <3

  17. This would be such an Epic battle!! I'd like to think that Gandalf the White could hold his own. I mean after the Balrog and all, how can he fail?

    My FF

  18. Awwww~! You included me on your blog influences list!!! *touched* Thank you, darling! I love your reviews, too! Which you can probably tell from all the over-excited comments I leave you here :D
    I'm gonna go check out Christy's site. I'm sure I've seen it before, but don't think I actually spent more time looking through it! Thanks for pointing me in the right direction!


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.
