Welcome to Friday! I hope everyone had an awesome week. I had testing for two days, which threw everything else off-kilter, which made for a very easy week of schooling.
The Blog Hop and Follow Friday is brought to you by Parajunkee and Jennifer at Crazy for Books (you can click on their buttons to go and visit).
The Blog Hop Question
Outside of books, what is your guilty pleasure?
Buffy the Vampire Slayer. My current obsession (and I'm sure all of my friends are tired of hearing me talk about it). Over the past few weeks, I have sat down and watched every single episode. I'm now on Season 4 of 5. I also love The Vlogbrothers on YouTube (check them out if you haven't already). I love correcting the grammar on random notes and I also love cheesy pick-up lines and I've looked them up just for fun and for a wonderful laugh :) I don't feel guilty about any of these things though.
The Follow Friday Question
Do you have anyone that you can discuss books with in real life? Tell us about him/her.
I'm really lucky to have several people like this in my life. My mom joined a book club several months ago and because of this, we've begun to talk more about the books we read. I have yet to find a book of mine that she likes, but she's recommended 'Water for Elephants' (which I loved to death) and 'The Help' (which I have yet to read. It's really fun.
I also did an exchange of books with my friends Ezra and Avery. Avery, I introduced to John Green books (she liked 'Looking for Alaska' and another one of them she found very strange, but I can't remember which). She lent me 'The Golden Compass' and the rest of that series, which I've started, but I'm really excited to get through, because I liked what I've read so far. As for Ezra, I've traded Laurie Halse Anderson books and she lent me 'Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist.'
I can also talk about books with my boyfriend, Jack. It's different because we have very different tastes in books. He talks to me about science fiction (I still have a book called 'Storm of Iron' which I really must finish. I also have some C.S. Lewis books of his). I've lent him 'The Book Thief' and I got him to read Harry Potter with the help of his sister. I think he's stuck on book four...
My grandma is the person I can mainly talk to about books. She reads historical and mystery books, and they're always very interesting to read. Last time I went to her house, I came home with an entire stack of books that I wanted to read. I'm probably not going to finish them for several months, but hopefully during the summer I'll be able to get through a large percentage.
I'm interested in reading everyone else's answers, so if you would like me to visit, leave a message in the comments along with your web address and I'll try my best to come by! Have a lovely weekend!
