Memes! On Friday!

Welcome to a late-night Friday!  Tonight, I plan on answering the questions posed by Jennifer @ Crazy-for-Books, Parajunkee, and Ginger @ GReads.  Feel free to answer these questions yourself!  Here we go!

How long does it take you to read a book?

I try to finish a single book in a week or less, but it really depends on the book I'm currently reading and what else is going on in my life.  If I'm really motivated and free, I could finish a book in a couple of days.  If I'm not so motivated and really busy, it could take me months (and in one particular case, years) to finish a book.  So it really varies.  But I also read more than one book at a time.

Quotes That Make You Swoon: What are some of the most swoon-worthy quotes you've experienced in a book?
“I'm in love with you," he said quietly.
"Augustus," I said.
"I am," he said. He was staring at me, and I could see the corners of his eyes crinkling. "I'm in love with you, and I'm not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of saying true things. I'm in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we're all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we'll ever have, and I am in love with you.”
That's from 'The Fault in Our Stars' by John Green.  It's amazing.  The title is also a link, if you haven't noticed. 

What drove you to start book blogging in the first place?

I was perusing the blogosphere and I noticed that a number of people were writing about the books they were reading.  I decided that I liked blogging about what I was reading, so I continued it and I just haven't truly gotten tired of it.

Those are my answers to these questions.  What are yours?  Feel free to leave a link to your answers below and I will try my best to stop by and visit you this weekend!

Thanks for Reading!



  1. Hi :) I'm a new GFC follower, and quite new to blogging as well.

    Here's my FF post if you want to know why I started blogging.

    have a great weekend!

  2. I'm also a new blogger.

    I'm a new follower via GFC.

    Hope you can stop by my new blog, ensconced in YA!

  3. HI, just stopping by to see your Book Blogger Hop answer! I was wondering what book you took a year to read. Sometimes I start a book then have to take a break because I have to read other books first (like from the library so I can return them) and then I forget to pick up the other one again.

    1. It's taken me about two years to finish Huckleberry Finn. I just was not able to get into it, but I'm determined to finish, since I probably have about 50 pages left or something like that. Someday though!

      I will come and visit your blog right now!


  4. I've never been able to read more than one book at a time, I'm envious!

  5. I just started following you (:

  6. Hi... just stopping by on a nice tuesday afternoon from the book hop. I am interested in reading the "friends, lovers, and chocolate". I like suspense novels. But i love the cover of the book!!! I shall put that on my TBR list. I as well read a couple of books at a time. Mood reading I call it.

    New follower and hope you can stop by and see my answer as well.

    I have the habit of reading more then one book at a time but I am trying to break out of it now because I read faster when I limit myself to just one book. It has taken me a while to read some books- I had to read Huck Finn for school so it was time sensitive.
    I see you are reading The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake, I read it last year and I just finished reading An Invisible Sign of My Own (I saw the movie so I wanted to pick up the book). What do you think of it so far?


I love your comments! Comment away!
