I'm Not Hopping, But I Am Following

Since most of the blogs on the Book Blogger Hop this week look familiar to me, I'm going to skip it this time. You should participate, though, especially if you're new in the book blogosphere and looking to connect with other bloggers. It's usually hosted by Jen at Crazy For Books, but this week, Lori's guest-hosting, so head over to her blog for all the details.

I haven't participated in Follow Friday for awhile, so I think I'll play along this week. If you're not familiar with FF, it's a fun book party hosted by Parajunkee's View. Click over to her blog for all the info.

This week's question, asked by Nicki J. Markus, is: The magic book fairy pops out of your cereal box and says, "You and your favorite character (from a book, of course) can switch places. Who are you going to switch with?"

My answer: I'm going to assume this means switching for a day, not forever. In that case, I'm going to be really generic and say Hermoine Granger. I mean, who wouldn't want to spend all day practicing magic and hanging out with people like Harry, Ron and Hagrid?

How about you? Who would you switch with?


If you're new here, welcome! I'm so glad you stopped by. Feel free to explore a little, make comments, leave me book recommendations, subscribe to my feed, Follow me - whatever. And don't forget to leave a link to your blog so I can do the same.

Have a great weekend, everybody!


  1. Hermione is a very popular choice this week. That doesn't surprise me because she's awesome! I love the layout of your blog. Thanks for following. I am now following you too :-)

  2. Ive noticed alot of people have chosen Im not a big Harry POtter fan,,I think I only watched up to the 3rd movie,,hehe,,anyway,,Im a new follower and hope u come by and check mine out..

  13. Thanks for following my blog! I'm brand new at blogging (One full week) so I have not set up FB or Twitter account yet. Is there a way to follow you via email updates? I couldn't find that option on your site. If not, I'll start following you as soon as I get a FB or Twitter account set up. Thanks again!

  14. Thank you everybody for stopping by and for Following! I'm so excited to meet you all and find more great book blogs.

    Hojo - Um, I have no idea how to subscribe via email. I've searched Blogger to figure it out and I'm getting nowhere. Does anyone else know how to enable this option on my blog? I know other blogs have it, but I'm clueless how to do this ... Thanks for any help!

    Personally, I follow blogs through Google Reader. It's my favorite reader program. It's easier than anything else I've found.

    Anyway, Hojo, I'll keep working on it and let you know if I figure out the email thing.

  15. Hi! Thanks for hopping by!:) I'm following you, too.

  16. Hermione does seem to be rather generic, but like you said, who wouldn't want to trade places with her? :-) Thanks for stopping by and following!

  17. Hey Susan! Thanks for stopping by earlier. I love your design here! I actually haven't read any of the HP series *hides* but I've seen a lot of people choose Hermione this week! =)

  18. Hopping through. I was totally boring and picked Hermione too. But it's hard not to pick her. She's the best.
    My Hop

  19. Your blog is so adorable! I'm going to go browse through all its bookie goodness right now.

    New follower :)

  20. When I read the question my mind immediately went to Harry Potter but I wanted to pick something different. I also would only want to be her for a day because they have too many bad things happen to them.

  21. Harry potter, of course. But If we're talking about any character, I'm going to include graphic novels and say Superman!

  22. Thanks for stopping by my blog. It's nice to meet you too. :) I'm a big Hermione fan. (and nice take on Divergent... I still need to read that one)


Comments make me feel special, so go crazy! Just keep it clean and civil. Feel free to speak your mind (I always do), but be aware that I will delete any offensive comments.

P.S.: Don't panic if your comment doesn't show up right away. I have to approve each one before it posts to prevent spam. It's annoying, but it works!
