Welcome to my blog! If you came here from the Book Blogger Hop over at Crazy-for-Books and Follow Friday from Parajunkee's View, thanks for visiting! This is where I talk, rant, rave, and gush about all things, books!

This week, Jennifer asks, "If you were given the chance to spend one day in a fictional world (from a book), which book and would that place be?"
I wrote about my favorite and not-so-favorite fictional places here, but I think it's a tie between Rivendell (from LOTR) and Hogsmeade (from HP)!

And Parajunkee asks us to put down five quirky things about you.
1. I watch make-up tutorials from Youtube at night to make me sleepy.
2. I hate book creases and folds but don't mind dog-earing.
3. I like putting deli turkey in sweet potato mash.
4. I like to pretend to do some online shopping when I want some retail therapy. I put everything in my "shopping bag" but never actually check out.
5. I own 6 different copies of Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte - my favorite novel in the Classics genre. I still continue to collect more.

I would love to check your blog out as well, so please leave your link here if you can. Also, visit me on Twitter! Happy Friday, everyone!


  1. I know a lot of people that do that virtual shopping thing, but it doesn't really work for me!

  6. Was thinking of LOTR too - Hogsmeade would be good, with some butterbeer!

    I do exactly the same with internet shopping, I spend hours looking at clothes i want, but never buying them!

  7. Beautiful Blog!

  8. New follower here. You can never have too much Jane Eyre! I used to have 3 physical copies but made myself cut back to one in the interest of shelf space. I still have 2 ebook copies in addition to that one remaining physical copy, though. :) Have a great weekend.

  9. Yes, Rivendell...there are just too many places I'd visit in the LOTR.

    Have a great weekned!

  10. New follower, hopping through! (I love your blog header!)

    I still need to read Jane Eyre. It's on my list to get to!

    Happy Hopping!

  11. New follower! Hogsmead would be an amazing place! I love HP. I also dog ear book but lately is has really been bothering me. Happy blog hop :)

  12. Retail isn't really ever a form of therapy for me, unless it's a much coveted piece of camera or diving kit. Then it gets pricey! Have a great weekend.

  13. New follower!

    I also do the virtual shopping thing! I love it! Sometimes I go back when things are "better" and buy an item or two, though. ;)


  14. I hate breaking the spine of my books as well. I have accidentally creased some covers a couple of times and I almost cried. It's really sad when that happens. I used to dog ear my books all the time, until my aunt lectured me about it and I haven't done it since!

    Have a great weekend!

  15. Wow. I bet there are a tons of different covers for Jane Eyre too.

  16. Hopping through. I've watched makeup tutorials a few times too. I wear bare minerals so it's good to see how people put it on.

  17. You don't mind dog earing? Woah - I think you're one of the first bloggers I've seen to admit that! I personally never do.

    Your choices of Rivendell and Hogsmeade are made of 100% sheer awesomeness. We'll get along just fine ;)

  18. Oh, those are the exact same places I would have chosen. I went with Rivendell.

    Make-up tutorials to put you to sleep, eh? I'll have to try that.
