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!

  3. Hey, glad I found you. New follower!

  4. I would love to meet the Bronte sisters! Wuthering Heights is my favorite classic books :) Nice picks! Here's my FF if you want to check it out!

  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.

  9. hoppin by! love your blog!

My 13 reasons why you should avoid Netflix's 13 Reasons Why

If you subscribe to Netflix, you should know about the book to film adaptation of Jay Asher's novel, Thirteen Reasons Why. I remember reading the book years ago on a recommendation, and fell in love with the story. It took me through so many emotions as I read Hannah's story. You can see my thoughts on the novel here, because this post isn't about the novel per se.

This post is about what bothered me about Netflix's attempt at capturing this story. So here goes, my 13 reasons why I shouldn't have watched "Thirteen Reasons Why" on Netflix.

1. The language. My goodness, the language. I understand that teenagers curse worse than sailors in many situations, but if you aren't bothered by the ridiculous use of the f bomb as both an adjective, verb, and general space filler-- there is a problem. I stopped counting in one episode its use because I reached 20 before the half way point. Twenty! I don't think they even bothered to come up with other words. …

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…
