Book Blog Hop and Follow Friday (3-29-13)

Happy Friday everyone! Are you ready for spring? I know I am ... I'm hoping the last of the cold weather is over by this weekend (I'd even give it til Monday ... I'm just that generous) and that spring will finally show up! I'm so tired of putting on my winter coat every single day, bundling up to go outside. I'm ready for something warmer! Well, let's get onto the Friday fun ...

What are your thoughts on the verification codes?

They are annoying, but I understand why people use them.

Parajunkee asks:

Tell us about the most emotional scene you’ve ever read in a book – and how did you react?

Probably the scene in Harry Potter when Dumbledore dies. You know that it's going to happen, but it's still so shocking and you are left wondering how the wizarding world will go on and if Harry will be able to defeat Voldemort without Dumbledore there to offer help. Obviously, I cried during this scene.

So, what's the most emotional scene you've ever read? What do you think of verification codes? Let me know and have a great weekend!


  1. Hmm.. I'd consider that scene a very emotional one too. For me, it's been a few books where I cried towards the ending, like My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult, The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks (when Ronnie is with her father towards the end) and such similar endings. :')

  2. I agree with you. I chose a scene from The Fault in our Stars by John Green.

  3. I also agree, have a great week-end.

  4. Hate code verification, the secret codes are too secret for me! Annoying when you have to try again and some of the font is just sooooo hard to read.

    And Death of Dumbeldore, totally agree. I was a wreck after reading it.

  5. I can't stand them!... but like you said, I do get why people use them.

    Your FF answer is awesome too... I love HP and that scene is extremely powerful. I have a Harry Potter desk calendar and Dumbledore falling was an image recently and I totally got a bit weepy over it.

  6. Hopping through. Dumbledore's death doesn't strike me as much for some reason. None of the deaths really affected me. I get more emotional in the scenes where the dead come back to Harry as in Goblet of Fire and the end of Deathly Hallows.
