Book Blog Hop and Follow Friday! (8-19-11)

Happy Friday everyone! I'm so excited that this weekend is here ... even though I'm working the next two days, I'm on vacation after that! It's a much needed vacation and I'm looking forward to getting away from it all (girls weekend in VEGAS!). If you are an old follower, welcome back! If you are hopping on through, welcome! This is my little blog where I review books (mostly contemp. fiction, historical fiction, memoir). Look around, see who I am and what I like to read. Now, onto the Friday fun ...

Jen at Crazy for Books asks: “What’s the LONGEST book you’ve ever read?” 

I believe the longest book I have ever read is Harry Potter. But, for a non-Harry Potter answer, I would have to say The Invisible Bridge, which was almost 800 pages.

Parajunkee asks: 

Q. If you could write yourself a part in a book, what book would it be and what role would you play in that book?

Well, the obvious answer is Harry Potter. I would love to be a part of the wizarding world and experience all that they get to! I don't know which part of the book I would write myself into ... maybe Ravenclaw or Gryffindor. I wouldn't want to be one of the main three. But to be there and see it all first hand would be awesome.

So, which book would you write yourself into? Let me know and have a wonderful Friday!


  1. I haven't even read them and that sounds neat. The life of a quiet magic user.

  2. I picked Harry Potter too!!! Great minds think alike! Awesome post:D

  7. i'd love to be my own sort of Katniss character. I recently dyed my blonde hair brown, and now I feel all katniss-y lol! (I WISH!)

    Followin you! Hope you'll come by my blog and tell me what your fav book of 2011 has been so far!

  8. Most people would guess I’d write myself in the role of a hero in a fictional adventure of some kind. But that would be only partially correct. As is my norm, I throw a curve ball in my answer that makes perfect sense one you follow my logic. Follow me back to my blog at and follow along the logic with me!

  9. THANKS for stopping by my blog.

    Any idea what is up with the followers? I can't get mine to show up and I can't get them to show up on other sites either.

  10. Ooh Harry Potter! I didn't even think of that!

    New follower here. :) Come say hello:


  11. I had The Invisible Bridge checked out and then decided it was too long for my tastes right now. The longest books I've read is are classics. Please come see which ones I'm talking about.

  12. I have saw Harry Potter on a few responses. They don't feel that long either. Sign of a good book. I don't know Invisible Bridge.

  13. I agree! I would write myself into a Harry Potter book. The thought of being in a magical world with magical objects and wands is just so cool. I never heard of the Invisible Bridge. I will have to check that out. I don't mind long books as long as they are interesting reads.

    Enjoy your vacation in Vegas. :)
