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!)

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

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.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and following me. I'm following you back. I'm so jealous of you that you met R.L. Stine I was a huge fan of his Fear Street books when I was younger.
Have a great weekend

Here's mine:
