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: Happy Father's Day! Who is your favorite dad character in a book and why?

Either Mr Weasley from Harry Potter, or Lola's dads from Lola and the Boy Next Door.

Mr Weasley is so endearing and charming that you can't help but love him. His kind heart and sweet nature rubbed off on his children as well.

As for Lola's parents, I love them because they are so present throughout the story. They care about Lola and take an active, parental role in her life. This is something often missing from YA novels and was refreshing too see. It also helps that they are humourous and awesome in their own right.

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

This weeks question is

Most Valuable Book: From your personal collection of books, which ones hold the most value to you - is it signed by the author? or maybe it's your favorite story of all time? Share it with us.

My most valuable book would have to be a set of them. My Harry Potter collection. They are not signed, or anything like that but I LOVE this series and cherish the set. I have read all of the books numerous time and will most likely read them many more.

Happy Weekend!


  1. I figured Mr. Weasley would be a popular one. It was really hard to think of any father figures. I guess parents are just uncool lol. New follower!

  3. Hi, new follower here. Harry Potter characters have been a popular choice. Check out my post:

  4. Since I've been talking about the HP fathers a lot in these last few posts, I want to zero in on your mention of Lola's parents. Why didn't I THINK OF THEM? They're PERFECT for this question. Two of the best parents I've read about in YA, for their attentiveness and discipline and all the love.

  5. Oh my gosh, how could I forget Mr. Weasley!? haha. Great choice. I'm a new follower via GFC. here's my FF:

  8. Hi, I went totally blank...I think because YA/paranormal reads usually don't include parents...anyway I went somewhere totally different when I did think of an answer. I am now following you through GFC as lucyatmax. Please return the follow at:
    You'll find my answer there.
    Thanks so much!

  9. I treasure my HP books as well. They are getting a little worn with all the re-reading so I will have to replace them soon. Maybe I will get e-book versions.

    Here's my Friday Hop. Stop by if you get a chance.


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.
