Book Blog Hop and Follow Friday (12-7-12)

Happy Friday everyone! Are you having a good December so far? Getting all that shopping, baking, decorating, etc? I have not done much of anything, so I need to get a jump on it ... right about now I guess would be a good time to start! Well, that's jump into the Friday fun first ...

Jen at Crazy for Books asks:

We are well into the Festive season, so what is your favourite festive reading?

I don't do much festive reading, but there is a David Sedaris book, Holidays on Ice, that I've been wanting to read for the past two years! It's all about families and the holidays, which is something that everyone can relate to. Hopefully I can get to it before Christmas this year!

Parajunkee asks:

Who do you want to be? If you could choose any character from a book. What do you think that character looks like and what do you have in common?

Well, there are two people who I would want to be. The first is Hermione Granger (which I'm sure will be a very popular answer this week). We have a lot in common, that we both like to read and learn, and that we don't care what others think of us. My second choice is Maisie Dobbs. I love how cerebral she is, how she doesn't care what others think of her, and that she is a successful woman running her own business (and this is back in the 1920s and 30s, when women didn't really own businesses).

So, what festive reading do you do at this time of the year? Which character(s) do you want to be? Let me know and have a great weekend!


  1. Answer to the Book Blogger Hop Question....mine is similar to yours. Stop by if you like.

    As to a character I would like to be....hmmmm...let me think.

    I actually think I would like to be Scarlet O'Hara. I love that time period and would have loved to live on a Southern Plantation.

    I don't think I would have been as evil and wicked as she is, though. :) I also don't think I actually have anything in common with her personality wise, but I do share her love of Tara. :) :)

    Happy Hopping and Answering!!

  2. old follower...I would choose to be Cherry Ames a nurse by Helen Wells. She was beautiful with rosy cheeks and in every book there was a romance and character lessons. I loved to read those b nooks as a kid...course now they are dated as I believe they were written during the world wars& fifties. She was an excellent role model for girls. Although I disappointed everyone because I did not become a

  3. New follower. I don't know why I didn't choose Hermione! It crossed my mind but then I decided not to. Instead I chose Macy from The Truth About Forever or Miranda from Tell Me A Secret.

  4. Holidays on Ice sounds much more like the type of book I'd read than all the chick-lit Christmas novels in WHSmith!

  5. Holiday On Ice sounds like a good seasonal story. Thanks for the suggestion!

  6. I think that everyone would like to be Hermione. She's just too amazing and awesome! Great picks. :)

  7. Hermione has been a popular answer to today's question. She totally deserves it, though. Gotta love Hermione.
