Blog Hop and Follow Friday (7)

Book Blogger Hop

The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by crazy-for-books. This week's question comes from Somer who blogs at A Bird's Eye Review:
"Do you read only one book at a time, or do you have several going at once?"

Although I have intentions of reading multiple books at once, I usually only read one book at a time. I feel like I'm cheating my book out of something if I share my reading time with another book. If I have to read a book for work, however, I will most certainly read multiples. My brain needs a break from work related reading.

Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by parajunkee's view. This week's question comes from Jess at Gone With the Words:  

How did you come up with your blog name?

This is a super easy question for me to answer. The name implies it all. I read at night with a flashlight.  know, very juvenile.  I don't have to hide under the covers when I stay up passed my bed time anymore, but the flashlight habit never died. I loose all my book lights, or the kids break them. Plus, I could never get the stupid things adjusted just right. Half of my page always ended up in shadows.


  1. I'm the same, sometimes it does feel like you're cheating on your blog. Happy Hop!

  2. Happy Hop! I love your background!

  3. Hopping by!

    I love your blog name, and how you got it! I usually try to stick with just one book as well. :)

    Happy Friday!
    My Hop!

  4. Your blog name is great! I used to love reading by flashlight after my parents said lights out. It's such a cozy way to read! I'm your newest follower.

    My Book Blogger Hop post is here.

  5. Like you, i typically read only one book at a time :) its much easier that way!

  6. Hopping through. I don't know that I ever read much with a flashlight, but it sounds so fun and youthful.

My 13 reasons why you should avoid Netflix's 13 Reasons Why

If you subscribe to Netflix, you should know about the book to film adaptation of Jay Asher's novel, Thirteen Reasons Why. I remember reading the book years ago on a recommendation, and fell in love with the story. It took me through so many emotions as I read Hannah's story. You can see my thoughts on the novel here, because this post isn't about the novel per se.

This post is about what bothered me about Netflix's attempt at capturing this story. So here goes, my 13 reasons why I shouldn't have watched "Thirteen Reasons Why" on Netflix.

1. The language. My goodness, the language. I understand that teenagers curse worse than sailors in many situations, but if you aren't bothered by the ridiculous use of the f bomb as both an adjective, verb, and general space filler-- there is a problem. I stopped counting in one episode its use because I reached 20 before the half way point. Twenty! I don't think they even bothered to come up with other words. …

This week's question: Do you have any furry friends?

These are my fur babies: 

This is what it often looks like while I'm busy working. As you can tell, productivity is high. 

This is Lilly waiting for her boys to come home. She'll spend the entire day just like this if she's not sleeping next to me in my office. 

This is Roscoe. AKA The Boss. He runs the show around here. And yes, he has a sweater AND a coat for cold weather. 

Review: The Search for Delicious

The Search for Delicious Natalie Babbitt
Product Details

Reading level: Young Adult
Paperback: 192 pages
Publisher: Square Fish (August 21, 2007)
ISBN-10: 9780312369828
Source: My personal book

Summary from Amazon: Gaylen, the King’s messenger, a skinny boy of twelve, is off to poll the kingdom, traveling from town to farmstead to town on his horse, Marrow. At first it is merely a question of disagreement at the royal castle over which food should stand for Delicious in the new dictionary. But soon it seems that the search for Delicious had better succeed if civil war is to be avoided.

Gaylen’s quest leads him to the woldweller, a wise, 900-year-old creature who lives alone at the precise center of the forest; to Canto, the minstrel who sings him an old song about a mermaid child and who gives him a peculiar good-luck charm; to the underground domain of the dwarfs; and finally to Ardis who might save the kingdom from havoc.

My Review: I love this book! It is such a fun, easy, and enjoyable r…
