The Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jennifer at Crazy for Books.
Question: Pick a character form a book you are currently reading or have just read and us about him/her. I just finished reading Gena Showalter's The Darkest Secret and I loved the character of Strider. (Even though this was Amun's book) I had no interest in him in the previous books and was even annoyed that he will be the hero of the next Lord of the Underworld series but in this book he was hilarious and multi dimensional. Strider is the keep of the demon Defeat. He must win at everything. We also got a peek at who his true love will be and it is going to be fantastic and quite challenging for our boy.
Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee
Question: Do you have anyone you can discuss books with IRL? Tell us about them. I talk to several bloggers through emails about books....Tiger from All Consuming books is my go to person for that, also Julie - My 5 Monkey's is someone who I discuss books with but IRL I would say my husband and my friend Sherry. My poor husband is the reason I started blogging in the first place. I knew I was talking about books too much when one day I was discussing the Black Dagger Brotherhood with him and mistakingly said Z & Mary and he said "isn't Z with Bella??" No husband should know that!!
I talk to my friend Sherry about books (and movies/TV shows) several times a week. We don't always agree but I love our debates or even better when we do agree and have 2 hour discussions about what we loved or hated about a book.
I think it's tough to talk about books particularly if you're an adult who reads YA, or if you like PNR/UF. As big as it is in the blogosphere - it doesn't seem to have made it into the mainstream so people look at you weird when you read those genres.
Thanks for stopping by and if you're interested I have two contests running through Sunday.
*Win Invincible Summer by Hannah Moskovitz
*Win Enclave by Ann Aguirre - You have three chances to win with this contest since I've teamed with my pals The Book Faery and Tiger from All Consuming Books.
Leave a comment and I'll hop back!!
