Blog Hop and Follow Friday (17)

Book Blogger Hop


The Book Blog Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Crazy For Books. This week's question comes from Britta at I Like These Books: "What book-to-movie adaption have you most liked?  Which have you disliked?" 

Oh, this question is right up my alley. I am always complaining about book to movie adaptations. My list of movies that were based on books that seriously irk me is pretty long. I'll start by saying that I adored the movie version of The Outsiders, The Princess Bride, and The Diary of a Wimpy Kid movies (they are so funny). Inkheart was decent too. Now, the movies that made me wish I had waited to rent them at Redbox were: Eragon, Hamlet, Girl, Interrupted and some others that I forget. (Luckily)

Even though I thought the books were better, I did like these movies: Briget Jones's Diary, Jurassic Park, Holes, and the Twilight movies.




Follow Friday is a weekly blog hop hosted at Parajunkee's View and features Louise at Book Bliss. This week's question is: How many books do you read in a week? And in what format do you read them, or listen to them?


After reading all of the responses, I am feeling a little sluggish in my reading habits. Normally I can finish 2 or 3 books a week, but lately I have found myself only reading one a week. It has been so crazy at work! When I get home, I'm too tired to read! I can't wait for summer vacation. As for audiobooks, I can't listen to them. They drive me crazy. I like to imagine the characters in my own way, not in the form of an actor/actress. I just can't do it. I'm sure I could get more books "read" if I listened to audiobooks on my commute.

  2. Let’s kick off Memorial Day Weekend with some scandal and controversy.

    I absolutely loved every minute of the Lord of the Rings films and felt they hit the mark when they brought Tolkien’s masterpiece to the big screen.

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. 

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…
