Blog Hop and Follow Friday (5)

Book Blogger Hop

 This week's question: "Who's your all-time favorite book villain?"

My favorite book villain has to be Dorian Grey from Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Grey. Seriously, anyone who is willing to sell their soul to the devil and murder their friend-- in order to stay young forever-- is pure evil. My second choice would be all the little heathens that helped murder poor Piggy in Lord of the Flies. Conformity is not cool.

This week's question: What's the most embarrassing thing you've done on cold medicine?

Well, thank goodness I don't really have any horrible stories to tell about this one. I do remember needing cold medicine and tissue (desperately) while sitting in a math class in college. That was embarrassing. It's hard to take a test while trying to keep snot from dripping out your nose. Sorry if that was really gross. It was really humiliating. 


  1. just hopping through. Both your choices are great. I would have never thought of the kids from lord of the flies, but they were horrible. Poor Piggy...

    My Bookish Ways FF

  16. Hi! Just stopping by from the Hop. I'm your newest follower!!! Awww, poor Piggy (lol-his name is kinda funny tho...*cough* sry...I'll be serious now)...I read that book in 7th grade and I remember asking my mom if she liked it (she was urging me to read it) and she answer "Its a classic"...I should have known that wasn't an answer to my question but I took it as a yes. I hated that book...mostly because of all the terrible things those boys did-just barbaric...and i liked Piggy! Also, I haven't read Dorian Gray but I really want sister loves it!
    Have a great weekend :)

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.

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. 

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…
