Book Blog Hop and Follow Friday (3-15-13)

Happy Friday, everyone! Are you ready for St. Patty's Day weekend? Hopefully you don't drink too much green beer! I get to work all weekend, so I'm hoping that people don't get too rowdy (adding food coloring to beer makes people do funny things). And can I just say how ready I am for spring?!? We got a little tease last weekend when the temperatures were up in the mid-60s! Then, two days later, it was snowing again. I love you winter, but it's time to say good-bye until next year. Well, let's get onto the Friday fun ...

Time to take a seat on the director's chair! If you could turn one of your favorite books into a film, who would you cast?

Well, I would probably say that I would like to see the Valentine's trilogy by Adriana Trigiani turned into a movie, because it would be a great chick flick focused on food, family, love, and most importantly, shoes! As to who I would cast as Valentine, I would have to go with Selma Blair. I think she has the looks to pull it off and she, while she is beautiful, she would look like a normal, everyday person, so the movie would be more believable.

Parajunkee asks:

Hopefully warm weather for most of us is here soon…so tell us about your favorite outdoor reading spot. Or take a picture.

Well, I don't have a picture of it, but I love just sitting on the deck, either in one of the cushiony chairs or in a rocker, reading. The sun doesn't hit directly on the deck until the late afternoon, so you can sit outside and enjoy the sunshine with it bearing down on you.

So, who would you cast in your movie? What's your fave outdoor place to read? Let me know and have a great weekend!


  1. Hi Kristine, sounds like a great place for outdoor reading:-) I love to sit in the swing in my garden reading, its quiet and very peaceful. Not really warm enough yet in Ireland for it though!

  6. I haven't had a chance to sit on my deck since I moved during winter but I can't wait for summer to use it!

  7. Ah, I wish I had a nice place to sit outside! I do love going out to the park...but I have to GO there. The hazard of apartment living...if I had a nicer place nearby to sit outside, I might enjoy warmer weather more! Lucky you with your deck. :)

  8. I head to the park if it's sunny because I don't have a garden :( But it's hardly ever sunny anyway haha

  9. Oooh, love your casting choice of Selma Blair. I have not read the book, but considering it is about food, love, and shoes with a lead character worthy of Selma Blair, I think I HAVE to read it now!

    Happy hopping!
