Blog Hop & Follow Friday (16)




Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee. This week's question is: It's circle time. Time for us to open up and share. Can you tell us FIVE quirky habits or things about you? We all have them...

So my weird habits... hmm... I'm perfect, so I have no weird habits. I can't think of any bad habits that I have, so I'm going to make a list of all the awesome things that I do.

1. I chew gum like a cow. It's an awesome calorie burning activity!

2. I'm a part-time Chia Pet. I have a student that is constantly petting my hair. He's in distress because I cut 10 inches off a few months ago to donate to Locks for Love.

3. If something is really funny, I snort. My husband thinks it's sexy.  

4. I say, "Oh, good grief!" way too much. I say it at least 100 times a day. My students think it's hilarious.

5. Oh, and I put mustard on my french fries.



Book Blogger Hop

The Book Blog Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Crazy for Books. This week's question is: "If you were given the chance to spend one day in a fictional world (from a book), which book would it be from and what would that place be?"

I really have no idea which fictional world I would want to live in. I'm on this major mermaid kick right now, so I'm thinking I would pick being a mermaid from Lost Voices. I wouldn't want any of the horrible things to have happened to me-- and I definitely wouldn't want to be in conflict with the other mermaids-- but I want fins. I think that would be awesome. Of course, being a fairy would be cool too. Flying seems like an awesome adventure. So maybe a fairy from Brigitta and the White Forest?

  6. I’ve seen a lot of great picks and gathered some fresh titles to add to my ever-growing TBR list. My answer will probably stun most people because the world I picked is a place most people would be scared to death of and try to escape from. Me? I want in.

    Hop on over to my blog and be prepared for the unexpected – http://www.howardsherman.net

  14. # 2 is so funny! Hi! Just stopping by. Following you from the Feature and Follow Friday blog hop (finishing from last night!). Would love a follow back: blog.writerslairbooks.com. I also have twitter: @wlbks. Have a 'good read' weekend!

  15. Thanks for stopping by my blog, I LOVED your comment. Following you now!! I snort too when I laugh, it's something that came on later in life, not sure why. Pretty sure my husband doesn't think it's sexy though, haha. And I've ALWAYS thought it would be cool to be a mermaid. Especially when I was little and The Little Mermaid came out, I would pretend I was a mermaid in the bathtub or in the pool.

  16. Great list :D

    Oh, and to answer your question about the Lipstick Laws:
    I'm actually not that far in (way too preoccupied with renovating my apartment) so I've only read 50 pages or so. It's great so far, though. Haven't read contemporary in ages, so it's really refreshing ^^

  17. I say "oh good lord" all the time especially at work when people tend to do stupid things.

The goal is to increase blog followers and make friends. Basically how it works is you follow them, they follow you. Win. Win. So looking forward to making new blogging friends & following blogs!


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…

Review: The Search for Delicious

The Search for Delicious Natalie Babbitt
Product Details

Reading level: Young Adult
Paperback: 192 pages
Publisher: Square Fish (August 21, 2007)
ISBN-10: 9780312369828
Source: My personal book


Summary from Amazon: Gaylen, the King’s messenger, a skinny boy of twelve, is off to poll the kingdom, traveling from town to farmstead to town on his horse, Marrow. At first it is merely a question of disagreement at the royal castle over which food should stand for Delicious in the new dictionary. But soon it seems that the search for Delicious had better succeed if civil war is to be avoided.


Gaylen’s quest leads him to the woldweller, a wise, 900-year-old creature who lives alone at the precise center of the forest; to Canto, the minstrel who sings him an old song about a mermaid child and who gives him a peculiar good-luck charm; to the underground domain of the dwarfs; and finally to Ardis who might save the kingdom from havoc.

My Review: I love this book! It is such a fun, easy, and enjoyable r…
