Book Blogger Hop

I’m so glad to be participating once again in the Book Blogger Hop!  You can learn all about it, and this week’s question here

“Non book related this week!  Do you have any pets?”

Easy-peasy question!  I am the proud owner of Roland!  (Think “May you find your Tower, Roland, and breach it, and may you climb to the top!”) Ro is a two year old cairn terrier, which is like Toto from Wizard of Oz.  I adopted him through Col. Potter’s Cairn Terrier Rescue Network.  He was not quite a year old, and came to me from a puppy mill.  He had a bit of baggage, but we’re working through it, and I can’t imagine life without him!

Check out these pictures.  You can also see him featured on the Cairn Rescue blog’s Wacky Wednesday.

This is his first day with me. See those scared eyes? Please, educate yourself about Puppy Mills.

Book Blogger Hop: Book-to-Movie

“What book-to-movie adaption have you most liked?
Which have you disliked?”

I almost didn’t answer this week’s question because it’s so much like the list I just made.  Then I realized that this was an  opportunity to expand on my list.  Since posting, I’ve had a number of conversations that pointed out some possibly overlooked movies.  This way, I can add them 🙂

Gone with the Wind is a movie that I absolutely adore!  The book, however, was a tough one.  I hated it.  I think that Scarlett is endearing in the movie, but was horrible in the book.  I’m so glad they made that movie!

So that falls under most liked (movie) and disliked (book).

I promise, I’ll put this topic to rest for a while!

“If you were given the chance to spend one day in a fictional world (from a book), which book would it be from and what would that place be?”

Well, I have to give a shout-out to Stars Hallow, Connecticut, of Gilmore Girls fame.  This fictional town is 100% the place I would like to be.  Small, friendly town where everyone knows everyone else and you can even laugh at the people who take themselves too seriously.  I’d move there in a heartbeat.  Admittedly, that’s cheating.

As a book blogger, there are many places I’ve envisioned myself living.  The two that I would love to visit for a day are The Fading Lands, from CL Wilson’s Tairen Soul Series, or Melissa Mayhue’s world from Daughters of the Glen, where Mortals, Faeries, and Highlanders collide.  Basically, I feel like our world could use a little more magic–and soul mates!

This is my second weekend since discovering the Book Blogger Hop Book Party hosted by Crazy for Books. I’m especially pleased to answer this week’s question:

Book Blogger Hop

“Which Book Blogger would you most like to meet in real life?

This question appeals to me because I’m pretty new to the blogging community.  I blog mostly to help me with my own memory, but I love books and would love discussing them further with fellow readers and bloggers!  So I guess my answer is I’d like to meet others. Period.  If you are stopping by, please take a moment to introduce yourself.

And thanks!

My First Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop

I‘m joining the hundreds of others for a weekly blogging party hosted by Jennifer, a book lover who is Crazy for Books. I’m pretty darn excited to find new blogs to follow. I also get to answer a fun, book-related question every weekend.  Here is this week’s question:

“Summer is coming quickly – what 2011 summer release are you are most looking forward to?”

Dead Reckoning cover

I know it’s a bit short-sighted, but right now all I can think about is the fact that Dead Reckoning, the latest Sookie Stackhouse novel byCharlaine Harris, comes out this week.  May 2nd, to be exact.

Just Like Heaven book cover

I’m also a big fan of Julia Quinn’s cute romance novels.  Her latest paperback, Just Like Heaven, will be released May 31st.  In the meantime, I’m behind on my reading and need to get to my copy of Ten Things I Love About You!
