Follow Friday #2 and In My Mailbox #2



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! This week's blogger is Al @ Magnet 4 Books.


Q. Circle time! Time to share. What character in a book would you most like to be, what character in a book would you most like to date?

Oh my! What a question... give me a minute... okay, after much deliberation staring at my shelves and holding a battle in my mind, I've decided to be an old school romantic. I would like to be Flip from And Both Were Young by Madeleine L'Engle, and the character I would like to date would be Paul from the same novel. Flip (or Philippa, I love that name!) is real and brave and kind. And Paul is sweet and believes in you and talks to you. All the wonderful things you want in another person. *sigh*


To join the fun and make new book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:

1. (Required) Follow the Follow My Book Blog Friday Host { Parajunkee.com } and any one else you want to follow on the list
2. (Required) Follow our Featured Bloggers -http://magnet4books.blogspot.com/
3. Put your Blog name & URL in the Linky thing.
4. Grab the button up there and place it in a post, this post is for people to find a place to say hi in your comments
5. Follow Follow Follow as many as you can, as many as you want, or just follow a few. The whole point is to make new friends and find new blogs. Also, don't just follow, comment and say hi. Another blogger might not know you are a new follower if you don't say "HI"
6. If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the Love...and the followers
7. If you're new to the follow friday hop, comment and let me know, so I can stop by and check out your blog!



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

It's where we post about the latest books we've purchased, gotten from the library, or received for review... it doesn't necessarily have to be ones you got in the mail. Although a lot of mine DO come from my mailbox. :)

This week, I didn't buy any books, but I DID go to the library as I mentioned yesterday. Here's what I got!



Going Too Far by Jennifer Echols
A Tale Of Two Pretties by Lisi Harrison
Where She Went by Gayle Forman
Time You Let Me In: 25 poets under 25
Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater
The Dark Divine by Bree Despain
Jekel Loves Hyde by Beth Fantaskey
Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick
Nightshade by Andrea Cremer


I've read two of them already, working on the rest. I only have two more weeks, unless I want to renew, which I have the tendency to do depending on how many books I borrow, lol.


That's all for today folks! Expect a review or two this weekend if I have a moment to post one.
