Blog Hopping and Friday Following

Yay~! It's time for another exciting book blogger hop and follow friday, that wonderful time of the week when we all link up together and discover new and interesting blogs and meet new and interesting bloggers. The hop is hosted by Crazy-For-Books and you can find the origins of Follow Friday over at Parajunkee's View.
This weeks hop 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?"
Hmm...that's a tough one. I can think of worlds I wouldn't want to be in, but currently not any I'd want to. I know my ideal world would be a slightly fantasy but mostly science fiction dieselpunk or steampunk world. I've never actually read a book like this (recommendations would be appreciated because I want to) but I love the movie Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, and I love steampunk movies and novels (which I have read) so that would be my ideal fictional world to jump into.

This weeks Follow Friday Question is:

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'm OCD about locks, this was brought on after watching too many murder mysteries late at night.
  2. I get into things about a couple decades after everybody else. Currently I love The Monkees, (60's) I'm catching up on classic teen movies I didn't watch when I wasn't a teenager (80's) and I'll always love the movies of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers (30's).
  3. I love to ask questions such as "what's your favorite movie/book/tv show etc". When I first meet you I will probably put you through one heck of an interrogation. Unless you tell me you don't like that sort of thing. I wouldn't want to be annoying...for the most part at least. :P
  4. I have to run in order to think through a story I'm writing.
  5. I will often say things my characters say aloud, particularly when I'm thinking or writing out a scene. This is okay in the comfort of my living room, but not so much outside when I'm walking the dog and didn't realize there was someone watching me.
So what are you 5 things you can tell me about yourself? What fictional world would you love to be in? Let me know in the comments section.


  1. I found your blog via Follow-Friday. I'm a bit crazy about locks as well, particularly making sure that my car doors are locked.

    Happy Friday. I hope you have a nice weekend.
    (following you now!)

  2. I often take walks with the dogs to work through story problems.

    I'm a new follower :D - I love your blog design!


    Feel free to stop by my blog -

  3. I would live to live in the world of the Baudelair's.:) it's hard to define it but it's pretty awesome :p
    1. I have to arrange my pen and it's cap in a certain way or else it really bugs me
    2.I have to open the curtains every morning and if not I feel incomplete :p
    3.if I really want to remember and get into a book I need to read it with a physical copy.
    I can't think of any more-another thing I have ;p

  4. New follower, hopping through!

    I'm crazy about locks as well. There for a while, I had to check, double check and triple check them to make sure. Now I pretty much just double check. :)

    Happy Hopping!

  5. Just hopping by, happy Friday.

    here's mine:

  6. 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 –

  7. Thanks for stopping by and commenting! I'm the same way about asking peeps about favorite movies/tv/books. Though it's so hard to pick. I'd love to know what teen movies you're catching up on, really! I love Netflix instant play for re-watching old goodies. ~ Jen @ A Book and a Latte

  8. I think it is cute that you say what characters say out loud. That's cool.

  9. Hopping by and following!
    I think your blog design/background is just so cute!

  10. Hopping through. I'm OCD about locks too. I like my house to be locked, but I always check that my bedroom is unlocked in case of fire.

  11. Fantasy would be fun.

    Stopping by from the blog hop....stop by my blog if you like.

    I would like to live in Louise Penny's fictional town of Three Pines.

    Have a fun hop.


  12. I lock everything! Hi! Just stopping by. Following you from the Feature and Follow Friday blog hop (finishing from last night!). Would love a follow back: I also have twitter: @wlbks. Have a 'good read' weekend!

  13. Just to say hi! I found your blog via the Book Blogger Hop which I just found this week. Having a look around your blog now. Have a great weekend.


Don't hesitate to leave a comment I love hearing from you~! Because I am terrible at remembering to give out awards after people graciously give them to me, I have now made my blog an award free zone like so many others. I thank you for thinking of me though.
