Blog Hop and Follow Friday (15)

Book Blogger Hop

The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Jennifer at Crazy for Books. This week's question is: "Are you going to Book Expo America (BEA) and/or the Book Blogger Convention (BBC) this year?"

I won't be able to attend this event. Honestly, I didn't even know about it until a month ago. Oh, well. I did, however, just come back from the IRA (International Reading Association) Convention in Orlando, Florida. It was a week long soiree full of books and reading related information. (All my teacher friends out there know what I'm talking about!) I managed so hustle a suitcase full of books and ARCs from the wonderful publishing reps while I was there. PS-- I ADORE Bloomsbury Publishing. They are always so generous! Never a disappointment. Ever. Did I mention I met Meg Cabot, R.L. Stine, Jeff Kinney, Jessica Day George, Goldie Hahn, and Tony Dungy? (Among others!!)  =)   It was a lot of fun. Another post with pictures will be coming soon.






Thanks to Parajunkee's View for hosting this great weekly meme! This week's question is in honor of the wonky week with Blogger: The Blogger Apocalypse made me a little emotional. What is the most emotional scene in a book that you have read lately?


I honestly have not read anything that has moved me to a heightened emotional state for some time. One of my all time favorite books is Lord of the Flies. I  know the final scene in that book gives me goose bumps every single time I read it. The horror of what lies dormant in the human soul is haunting. If you haven't read that book...YOU SHOULD! I mean it. Read it right now. It's powerful stuff. (R.I.P. Piggy!)

  1. Hi! Thanks for the follow, I'm now following you too. I LOVE the name of your blog. I used to get grounded as a kid for staying up all night reading with a flashlight. My mom would take my flashlights away :).

    Have a great weekend! ~ Jen @ A Book and a Latte

  4. OMG! I'm so jealous. I would love to meet those authors.

    I'm not going to BEA. I don't have the time and I really just heard about it since I started blogging. Even now, I don't fully understand what is going on.

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.

Blog Tour: A Perilous Journey of Danger and Mayhem (Christopher Healy)

It is 1883—the Age of Invention! A time when great men like Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, Nicola Tesla, and George Eastman work to turn the country into a mechanical-electrical-industrial marvel: a land of limitless opportunity. And it all happens at the world famous Inventors Guild headquarters in New York City—a place where a great idea, a lot of hard work, and a little bit of luck can find you rubbing elbows with these gods of industry who will usher humanity into the bright promise of the future.
Unless, of course, you’re a woman.
Molly Pepper, daughter of brilliant but unknown inventor Cassandra Pepper, lives with her mother in New York. By day, they make ends meet running a small pickle shop; but by night, they toil and dream of Cassandra shattering the glass ceiling of the Inventors Guild and taking her place among the most famous inventors in America. In an attempt to find a way to exhibit Cassandra’s work at the 1883 World’s Fair, they break into the Inventors Guild—and…

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.
