Happy Friday and 4th of July weekend to you all! If you are stopping by my blog for the first time, welcome! My name is Kristen (hence, Kristen's Book Nook) and I enjoy a wide variety of books. So go ahead, look around, and I hope you like my little blog! For my old followers, welcome back! So, now on with the fun ...
“What keeps you reading beyond the first few pages of a book, and what makes you want to stop reading a book and put it back on the shelf?“
I always give a book more than the first few pages. It sometimes needs time to develop into something, so I try not to judge too quickly. However, if I reach the half way point and it's still nothing happening, I decide it's time to end. It has to be an interesting plot, well-written, and the characters HAVE to be engaging. I hate a book where the characters are lack-luster. That's what really turns me off from a book.
Q. ACK! Your favorite book/movie character (example Hermione Granger played by the Emma chick) just walked into the room! Who is it and what would be your first reaction? You get extra points if you include visual stimulation.
I would have to say Rupert Grint (Ron from Harry Potter). I don't know why, but the facial expressions he makes just make me giggle! If I met him, I would probably try not to bother him. It's strange, but being a celebrity would get to be annoying with people coming up to you all the time, so I wouldn't want to be one of those annoying people who bugs them or creeps them out. It's weird, I know, but if I were in his shoes, I wouldn't want that happening to me all the time!
So, who's your movie character freak out? Let me know (leave a link) ... I love to know what other people think! And have a happy and safe 4th of July weekend!
