Follow Friday and TGIF (11-18-11)

Happy Friday, everybody! I hope that you are having a great November so far and getting everything ready so that you can have a stress free Thanksgiving next weekend! I plan to do a little baking today (pumpkin bars ... mmm!) and catching up on laundry (I'm pretty sure it multiplied while I wasn't looking this week). Now, onto the Friday fun!

Parajunkee asks:

Letter to Santa: Tell Santa What Books You Want for Christmas!

Too many! Haha, but seriously, there a lot of books that I want for Christmas. It would take hours for me to list them all, so these are the two books that I really want to find under the tree:

A Dublin Student Doctor by Patrick Taylor (the only series that I really keep up with. Such a nice, enjoyable read!)

The Marriage Plot by Jeffrey Eugenides (I have a feeling there are lots of people who hope to find this under the tree!)

Ginger at GReads asks:

Giving Thanks: Which books are you most thankful for receiving from other bloggers, friends, family members, or publishers?

Whenever someone gives me a book, I'm always thankful. The best book that someone ever gave me was The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand. My dad gave it to me my senior year of high school. It is a long book but such a good one. If you haven't read it, then put it on your list for books that you must read during 2012!

So, what are you asking Santa for this year? Which books are you most thankful for receiving? Let me know, and have a great weekend!


  1. I never heard of those two books, but I hope that if you get them you will adore both! :)

    Happy Friday.

  2. I follow you here! happy friday! :)

  3. I have been meaning to read Middlesex for a while now, and I've heard great things about The Marriage Plot.
    Hope Santa brings you both!

  4. Haven't heard of these, but I hope they're waiting for you under the tree!

  5. I haven't heard of either of those, but hopefully Santa brings them for you this year! Happy Friday!

  6. I actually have a copy of The Fountainhead (way back at home in the Philippines), but I never got around to reading it. I guess I should now!

  7. I've never heard of the Fountainhead! I'll have to take a look on GR!
