Blog Hop and Follow Friday (23)

Book Blogger Hop




The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted over at Crazy for Books. This week's question is: What’s the ONE GENRE that you wish you could get into, but just can’t?

Science Fiction! I have tried and tried to "get into" this genre, but I can't. I've even read some awesome books that give me hope, but the genre as a whole still falls short for me. I thinks it's my aversion to science related things that presents such a  problem. I am more of a fantasy person. 






Follow Friday is a weekly blog hop meme hosted by Parajunkee's View. This week's feature is Alison Can Read, and the question is: Name 3 authors that you would love to sit down and spend an hour or a meal with just talking about either their books or get advice on writing from?


To only list three is so hard! I'm thinking off all my favorite authors over the years, so I'm going to throw them out there. 
1. Laurie Halse Anderson
2. Toni Morrison
3. The Bronte sisters


It seems I have a thing for female writers... hmm... I swear that was totally unintentional. If you asked me about favorite poets, I had a ton of males to add to the list! =)

  1. SF is one genre that I have trouble with as well. I can do books with SF elements, but I have yet to really fall in love with a straigh-up SF novel I suppose.

    Happy Friday!

  5. Great picks! I have to admit, I only like one Bronte sister. I'm a new follower. My answers are up at Coffee Table Reviews.

  6. Hopping by to say hello! Sci-Fi is a genre that I have gotten into a bit more in recent years. It is mostly the sub-genres that I enjoy with hints of paranormal, etc.

  7. Sci-Fi books are a hit or miss for me but generally I'd say I like the genre.

  8. I love all three of the authors you mentioned. I almost put science fiction when I answered but changed my mind at the last minute.

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. 

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…

The Winner's Crime ( Marie Rutkoski)

Book two of the dazzling Winner's Trilogy is a fight to the death as Kestrel risks betrayal of country for love.

The engagement of Lady Kestrel to Valoria’s crown prince means one celebration after another. But to Kestrel it means living in a cage of her own making. As the wedding approaches, she aches to tell Arin the truth about her engagement... if she could only trust him. Yet can she even trust herself? For—unknown to Arin—Kestrel is becoming a skilled practitioner of deceit: an anonymous spy passing information to Herran, and close to uncovering a shocking secret.

As Arin enlists dangerous allies in the struggle to keep his country’s freedom, he can’t fight the suspicion that Kestrel knows more than she shows. In the end, it might not be a dagger in the dark that cuts him open, but the truth. And when that happens, Kestrel and Arin learn just how much their crimes will cost them.
