Book Blog Hop and Follow Friday (2-15-13)

Happy Friday everyone! Did you have a good Valentine's Day? I hope that someone (it doesn't have to be a sweetheart), got you something sweet this year. If you are planning on going out this weekend to celebrate, I ask that you take pity on this serving/waiting/assisting you. This is a crazy weekend for them and you have no idea what kind of weird things people ask for or do (believe me, I work in a restaurant, and it's the busiest, but also the strangest, week of the year). Well, let's get onto the Friday fun ...

What upcoming book in 2013 are you most looking forward to reading?

There are so many! At this moment in time, I'm most looking forward to the new Maisie Dobbs novel by Jacqueline Winspear. I love those books and now that I'm all caught up on the series, I just have to wait for her newest one to be released! (Good news is that in comes out in March, so not much longer now!)

Parajunkee asks:

Write a letter to your favorite character. Rant, rave or gush…just pretend like they are real and you just want to let them know a “few things”.


Well, I'm not going to write a letter, but here are a few characters that I would consider writing to:

1) Maisie Dobbs - just to vent.

2) Mr. Darcy - to gush and try and steal him away

3) Harry Potter - to see if he could get me into Hogwarts


That's all I could think of wanting to write to! Well, who would you write, given the chance? Let me know and have a great weekend! 




  1. I like your choice of characters for above. I'm hear via Coffee Addicted's hop, and I'm that Gary Schmidt (Author of Okay for Now) comes out with something new soon. C'mon by my blog and pay a visit!

  2. I never heard of Jacqueline Winspear. I'll have to keep an eye out on her books.

  3. My MIL's a HUGE Maisie Dobbs fan. I'm lucky to get the ARCs of the books from Harper and I always pass them on to her first. She liked the newest one, but says it takes Maisie in a strange, new direction ...

    Happy Hopping!

  4. Last month I gave the first Maisie Dobbs a shot. For what ever reason, I quit a few chapters in. The series has had some serious buzz lately, so I am determined to finish it. I am hoping that I get hooked. Maybe I could do a marathon and read them all during summer break.
