Blog Hop and Follow Friday (19)




Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee’s View. This week’s question comes from Nicki J. Markus: The magic book fairy pops out of your cereal box and says “you and your favorite character (from a book of course) can switch places!” Who are you going to switch with? 
I really can’t think of a particular book that I would want to be a part of, but I have a genre preference. I would love to be in one of the fairy tale retellings that I’ve read. The only problem is, I only want to be there during the good times. Most characters in the books that I’ve read have too many problems. I don’t want to add to my strife. =)  So, maybe The Goose Girl. OH! I would love to be in a Tamora Pierce book. Yes! That’s it. Alanna from the Alanna series. That would be a good switch.


Book Blogger Hop

The Book Blog Hop is hosted by Crazy for Books, and has such a great question this week! It is: What author would you most like to meet?

That is such an easy question for me! I adore Laurie Halse Anderson! Love. Her. Speak and Twisted are two of my favorite books. Not to mention that I have read every YA book that she has written. Laurie Halse Anderson has an amazing way of writing about tough subjects in a beautiful, almost poetic style.

I would also like to meet Tamora Pierce. She is the reason I love fantasy novels. Plus, she has an entire series (the Alanna series) that features a kick-ass heroine with MY name. Is there any other reason to want to meet her? I think not!

  8. I think I am too afraid to actually meet an author. Would I look like a strange groupie or something? Anyways, Hope your weekend is great!

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…
