Book Blogger Hop #1, Follow Friday #4, & In My Mailbox #3

Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Jennifer @ Crazy for Books.

This week's question:

"If you were given the chance to spend one day in a fictional world (from a book), which book would it be from and what would that place be?"

My answer: Anne Of Green Gables on Prince Edward Island ANYWHERE. I grew up loving the book, loving the scenes from the movie, it was all just amazingly beautiful. All the time in the world to do anything.

Alright! Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee and is a way for book bloggers to get to know each other better. Just go to her page and follow the directions, and you'll be making some new friends!

Q. It's circle time. Time for us to open up and share. Can you tell us FIVE quirky habits or things about you? We all have them...

1. I love watching TV on DVD. I own literally over 50 different seasons. My favorites include Bones (side note: what a finale last night, right?!), How I Met Your Mother, The Big Bang Theory, Veronica Mars, The Simpsons, Scrubs, and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. I've been known to have marathons where I watch whole seasons within a few days.

2. I collect My Little Ponies, Kitty In My Pockets, plushies, and various other toys. I feel it keeps me connected with my childhood, and keeps my inner child going.

3. Aside from cats, my favorite animal is a lemur and I want nothing more than to have one as a pet as soon as it's possible. They are absolutely adorable.

4. I have had an obsession with Billy Joel since I was 16. I have memorized practically every song, including "We Didn't Start The Fire". Recently I've been popping random albums into my car's CD player to listen to on my way to work. (Most recent: Glass Houses, specifically because "Sleeping With The Television On" was stuck in my head)

5. I love slapstick and silly comedy. Anything from Saturday Night Live, Mel Brooks, The Red Green Show,, YouTube Poops of Mario and Zelda games... I could watch them and laugh all day long.

In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren.

I received a package from Barnes & Noble and one from Amazon. Got some bargain books AND some newer books that I've been wanting for awhile. I also got a couple books for future giveaways, but I won't be sharing those in this feature today, since they're not for me. I will reveal those soon enough, just you wait!

So... what did I get?

Sealed With A Diss by Lisi Harrison
Dial L For Loser by Lisi Harrison
Before I Die by Jenny Downham
Matched by Ally Condie
Divergent by Veronica Roth
Bumped by Megan McCafferty

As you can see, I got anxious to get into the other dytopian worlds. Can you blame me? I'm almost done with my library books, so I should be able to get these going very soon!



  1. I prefer watching TV on DVD too :)

    What a great mailbox, I'd quite like all of them!

    I am a new follower! :D


    Feel free to stop by my blog -

  2. Bones finale: :O :O :O my entire family and I were literally going "WHAT?!" for about the last five minutes of the show. Ah. May. Zing. I also like watching TV on DVD better.

    xo, Maria

  3. Following you too Jules!

    YES! A fellow Bones fan! I believe I said "unbelievable" twice at the end. Oh my goodness... The worst part of loving a TV show is waiting 5 months for it to return after the finale. Especially after the cliffhangers! ^_^

  4. OMG! I LOVE the Red Green Show! And holy cow, what a season finale of Bones last night! <3

  5. Oh, love love Bones and Law and Order: SVU!
    And I'm so glad I'm not to only one who randomly changes topics!
    Ooh, great mailbox. Before I Die is one of the best books I've read: I cried bucketloads!
    Thanks for the follow; I followed back, and have a great weekend! :)

  6. New follower, hopping by!

    We don't have cable, so we watch a lot of tv on DVD! It's great!

    Happy Hopping!

  7. Anne of Green Gables is a great choice.

    here's mine:

  8. Hey there!
    I only have three things to say:
    1) Prince Edward Island? Heck yeah!!!!! I also love Anne (waiting patiently to break a slate over someone's head :)
    2) My little ponies rock!
    3) Thanks for following...I'm your newest follower #49. Nearly to 50, woot!

  9. I’ve seen a lot of great picks and gathered some fresh titles to add to my ever-growing TBR list. My answer will probably stun most people because the world I picked is a place most people would be scared to death of and try to escape from. Me? I want in.

    Hop on over to my blog and be prepared for the unexpected –

  10. Agreed with Anne of Green Gables! I've been to PEI before (early spring) and it's heartbreakingly beautiful. I can't imagine what it looked like in Montgomery's time.

  11. Thanks everyone!

    @ Angie: The Red Green Show is the bomb. I'd watch it more if it didn't irritate my mom so much.

    @ Meg: I have wanted to read Before I Die for awhile. I know I'll be crying my eyes out.

    @ Ninja Girl: I would be the one to break a slate over a boys head. And I've been tempted quite a few times. ^_^

  12. Really nice list! :D Love how interesting they are!

    Following! My quirky list can be found here!

  14. @ Ursula Kerr: Heartbreakingly beautiful. I love that.

    Thanks! :)

  15. Thanks for stopping by. I love Law & Order:SVU! I don't have any on DVD, though. The only show I own every season of is Gilmore Girls. I still watch it almost everyday, even though it's in syndication.

  16. I love watching tv on dvd too! I've got all of Will & Grace on dvd & always pop it in after a horror movie because its a comfort :-)
    Ive got Vamp. Diaries too & now I'm waiting, impatiently, for season two to come out. Ah Damon...

    I'm following, btw :-)
