Blog Hop and Follow Friday (20)

Book Blogger Hop

The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted at Crazy for Books. This week's question asks us "How many books are in your TBR pile?

I really thought I had a lot of books waiting to be read, but then I saw that some people have over 1,000! I'm pretty sure I would be kicked out of my house at that point. Currently, I have two large shelves full of books (two rows each, of course). I think that equals around 150 once you include my little piles around the house and next to my bed. I use my books as decorative pieces. =) You know, like Potterybarn does with the coffee tables and all. 

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee's View and features a new blogger each week. This week's feature is Rhiannon Paille. This week's question is:  What's your favorite genre and which book in that genre made it your favorite?

 Fantasy is my favorite genre-- hands down. I think it all started with a Tamora Pierce book that featured a main character with my name. Four series and 15 books later, I was hooked. Before that though, my grown up self read a lot of Victorian Literature. I even thought about getting my Master's in it. That can be attributed to the awesome Jane Austen and Pride and Prejudice and Kate Chopan's The Awakening. (sigh)


  1. Hopping over from the Hop!

    I try to keep my actual pile small. So I only buy books after I read a few. That being said, my list of books to buy is disgusting haha. There are SO many.

    My Hop is here:

  2. Hopping through! Just started following! I think your blog design is adorable. And I used to love Tamora Pierce!

    My FF Post!

  5. I have way too many books on my TBR list and TBR pile. All told that comes to about sixty books.

    Now here's the scary math: I read roughly one book per week - and sometimes two. But two to three books are being added to my TBR list every week.

    Stressful, right?


    Hop on over to my blog - and find out why.

  13. My pile is small compared to some that I have been seeing. My house isn't big enough for one thing. Hopping by, have a great weekend!

  14. I enjoy fantasy. I read it more when I was younger though. Now it seems like there are so many genres within the fantasy genre.

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. 

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…
