Follow Friday & Book Blogger Hop #6

Ooh guys. I've been doing this for meme six weeks now! It's hard to believe. I feel like I've only been blogging for a couple of weeks, and it's actually been months... Dang. How time flies when you're having fun, eh?

Anyhoo, it's Friday again! Meaning all of the following fun! Here's to hoping I'm not too loopy to answer like a normal person. :)

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee each week and is a joint effort between all of us bloggers to get more followers. Plus, each week a different question is asked, and I get to answer it! So here goes:

Q. If you could write yourself a part in a book, what book would it be and what role would you play in that book?
ME. I loveeeee Juliet Marillier's Sevenwaters series. The books take place in ancient Ireland, which I find fascinating as it is, but she always has female protagonists, and they're ridiculously strong. I would want to be one of the members of the family at Sevenwaters. They all have lovely (read: exciting and perilous) adventures in the books, and I want to goooo!

Book Blogger Hop is a weekly par-tay for book bloggers to connect! It's hosted by Crazy for Books (follow that link to get to this week's Blogger Hop post!) and lasts Friday through Monday every week! And we get another exciting question, here goes:

Q. What's the LONGEST book you've ever read?
ME. Definitely Gone With the Wind. At least I'm pretty sure. It's definitely the longest book I've read that I loved. I could be blocking something terrible out... :)  I read it ages ago, but it was awesome.

Well, that's all I have to ramble about today! As always, I'd love to check out your Follow Friday and/or Book Blogger Hops, so leave me links! It does tend to take me a little while to get to them, so I'm sorry if I randomly comment on Tuesday or Wednesday. :) Happy weekend!


  1. Thanks for the follow! Following back!

    I have always wanted to visit Ireland, England, France, basically just about everywhere in Europe!

  3. wow, that's awesome- I've never heard of those books but I can't wait to look into them now. Books with strong lead heroines are always my favourites :) Have you read any Tamora Pierce? Her books are like that too! :)

  11. I'm finding that everyone wants to be a part of series..I guess it is because they are just so encompassing by nature of their length.

    PS: I'm a new follower! Please check out my post, where I desperately want to be written into GONE WITH THE WIND. Thanks!

  12. Those sound really good, and I'll be putting them on my TBR list. Following!

  13. LOVE Gone with the Wind!!! In my opinion well worth the high number of pages.

  14. I didn't even think of Gone With the Wind, but I've read it more than once! :)

  15. We agreed - Gone with the Wind is my longest as well.

  16. I loved GONE WITH THE WIND too.

  17. Most people would guess I’d write myself in the role of a hero in a fictional adventure of some kind. But that would be only partially correct. As is my norm, I throw a curve ball in my answer that makes perfect sense one you follow my logic. Follow me back to my blog at and follow along the logic with me!

  18. Great answer! I've heard very good things about Marillier's "Sevenwaters" series. Your answer may just be the motivation I need to finally pick up "Daughter of the Forest". ^_^
