Blog Hop and Follow Friday (8)

Book Blogger Hop

This week's question comes from Mina who blogs at Mina Burrows:




"If you could physically put yourself into a book or series…which one would it be and why?"

I can't think of which book I would want to be in, but I can think of a book that I would not want to be in: Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Although I think the books are hysterical, I would hate to relive middle school. Could you imagine? OMG... No thank you.  











This week's question comes from Rebecca at Confessions of a Page Turner: Give us five BOOK RELATED silly facts about you.

1. I love fairy tales. I read anything and everything fairy tale related.

2. I've loved mermaids since I was little. My first book series that I read was Disney's Little Mermaid chapter books. I loved them! I would fantasize about being a mermaid. Even to this day I love mermaids. It's very girly, I know.

3. I would spend my mortgage money on books. Well, most of it anyway. =) I would certainly go without food for books. I can't seem to get the rest of the family on board, though.

4. I want to write a book someday. I work with middle school children, so it would probably be a YA novel of some sort. Too many ideas jumping around, however, to make any sense. Being in the classroom gives me plenty of material to work with... some of it would be an absolute riot.   

5. I have way too many books sitting on my bookshelves. Since I teach, I collect books. I even dream about books sometimes! 

6. I'm going to add one more... My favorite books are: The Little Prince, The Littlest Angel, Lord of the Flies, Picture of Dorian Grey, The Bluest Eye, Jude the Obscure, Adam Bede, Fairest, Whirligig, Speak, Twisted, and Breathing Underwater. Well, just to name a few anyway. It's hard for book lovers to limit themselves to just one or two "favorite" books.

  2. The Little Mermaid was the first movie my dad took me to see in theaters, but I don't know that I ever read the books. :-) Happy Friday!

  4. Just hopping by. I've never read that series, but I'd wager that NO ONE would want to re-live middle school. :p I don't know anyone who loved middle school.

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. 

Book Blitz: Visions by Lisa Amowitz

Vision by Lisa Amowitz Release Date: 09/09/14 Spencer Hill Press
Summary from Goodreads: The light is darker than you think…

High school student Bobby Pendell already has his hands full—he works almost every night to support his disabled-vet father and gifted little brother. Then he meets the beautiful new girl in town, who just happens to be his boss’s daughter. Bobby has rules about that kind of thing. Nothing matters more than keeping his job.

When Bobby starts to get blinding migraines that come with scary, violent hallucinations, his livelihood is on the line. Soon, he must face the stunning possibility that the visions of murder are actually real. With his world going dark, Bobby is set on the trail of the serial killer terrorizing his small town. With everyone else convinced he’s the prime suspect, Bobby realizes that he, or the girl he loves, might be killer's next victim.

Armchair BEA 2012 Introductions (day 1)

First, let me start off by saying that I am very excited to be participating in Armchair BEA this year. Since this is the first day of the weeklong event, here are my answers to the interview questions:

Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging?
Well, the answer the first part of that question, I am a middle school Language Arts teacher in Florida (and probably one of the only people in a coastal city that hates the beach). I’ve been married to my hubby for 10 years and have 2 boys. My house is a constant zoo and I’m turning 30 in a few months. There is a mid-life crisis in my near future, I’m sure, but I wouldn’t trade any of it for the world.
I started blogging in December of 2011 out of necessity. Seriously. My students know how easily I am distracted when they ask me about books (I eventually caught on to their tactics), so I started blogging out of a need for more teaching time. (I should go ahead and mention that I never talked books all day—even…
