Follow Friday and Book Blogger Hop #8

Whew. Friday again! What a relief, eh? It's been a good week already. If you haven't seen, I'm having my 100 follower giveaway here, so go enter! I'm giving away ARCs from Anna Carey, Brenna Yovanoff, and Tahereh Mafi, plus a signed book by Holly Black. Isn't that worth your time? :)

Anyways, 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 change the ending to any book (or series), which book would you choose? Why and to what?
ME. I remember reading The Sweet Far Thing quite a few years ago, and being completely upset with the ending. Now, if you haven't read Libba Bray's series, you obviously won't know what I'm talking about, but I don't want to actually spoil it here... If you've read it, you know what I mean. KARTIK!!! I don't know what I'd change it to, but I'd definitely change it. I cried.

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 are you most looking forward to this fall/autumn season?
ME. Ohhhh, for sure just the weather. I'm from south Mississippi, and go to school in the middle of Alabama, so it's almost always hot here. In the fall we get some really lovely not so hot weather that I adore. That is what I always look forward to, not sweating my brains out every time I walk outside. :)

So... All the fun is done! Please go check out my giveaway (it's international!!!) and have a great weekend! :)


  1. Old follower dropping by.

    I have to agree with you on The Sweet Far Thing. What happened to Kartik made me so sad. I just wish that hadn't happened!

  2. Already a follower, but stopping by for Follow Friday!

    I stopped reading your answer when I saw what you were writing about because I haven't read the book yet. I have 'A Great and Terrible Beauty' downstairs waiting for me to read.

    Happy Friday!

  3. Hi New follower. I love the Fall weather up here too, and watching the leaves change there always so pretty.

  4. I couldn't make it through A Great and Terrible Beauty, I wanted to like the series but I just couldn't get through it

  9. The weather and the colours! Have a great weekend!

  10. This week’s question is perfect for Labor Day weekend with the “official” end of summer and all.

    I’m all about fall! I love all four seasons and I’m sorry to see summer go (I hope to get in a few more swims in my pool) but I’m also amped up for Autumn.


    For most of the same reasons we all like autumn – fall foods, Halloween, the chill in the air, changing leaves and candy corn. But I’ve got a scary slant to why I’m angling for autumn. Hop on over to my book blog at to read all about the murder, mayhem, seriously spooky stuff and even some BSP!

    Happy Labor Day Weekend!
