Happy Friday everyone! I hope that you had a wonderful and safe 4th of July, however you chose to celebrate. We spent the day swimming and then went to watch the fireworks. Nothing too exciting, but it was a nice day. And, like the rest of the US, we are in the midst of a heatwave. It's awful, but looks like it should start cooling down on Sunday (thank goodness!) Now, onto the Friday fun ...
Jen at Crazy For Books asks:
If you could be a character from any book, who would you be?
Well, I would love to be Hermione, but I think I would only like it minus the dangerous stuff they are always thrown into. I would love to be Valentine Roncalli from the Very Valentine series. I would love to live in Manhattan, travel to Italy, and create shoes. It's basically my dream life!
Which books do you go to for comfort & familiarity?
Is there a type of book you seek out when you're needing that extra bit of comfort in your life?
I tend to seek out chick-lit books. They are just something that is so easy to read and they are engaging, so it's easy to get lost in one.
Jumping Genres: Ever pick up a book from a genre you usually don’t like and LOVE it? Tell us about it and why you picked it up in the first place.
The book that I think of instantly is The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. It's a fantasy novel, but I just had to read it. I had seen so many reviews from bloggers, many of whom do not read fantasy, so I thought that I should give it a try. And I absolutely loved it! So glad that I decided to give it a try!
So, which character would you be if you could be? What books are comforting to you? What book was outside your genre but you loved it? Let me know, and have a great weekend!
