Follow Friday (11)

Happy Friday, everybody!

Time to do some love sharing!
I'm participating in two Follow Friday Blog Hops. The first one is hosted by Parajunkee's View

Parajunkee's View is featuring a blog every Friday. This Friday she introduces us to Erika from Let's Talk About Books. Take a look at her blog and follow her!

Question of the week:
Q: ACK! Your favorite book/movie character (example Hermione Granger played by the Emma chick) just walked into the room! Who is it and what would be your first reaction? You get extra points if you include visual stimulation.

My answer:
I guess that I will be quite cheesy too with my answer: It would be Edward/Robert Pattinson from the Twilight series.
How would I react? I would probably be surprised, say hello and try to talk to him and if I'm lucky to get a picture together with him :)
I decided not to go for the visual goodies :)
Now to the second hop I'm participating. It is usually hosted by Jennifer at Crazy-For-Books.
Book Blogger Hop

Question of the week:
What keeps you reading beyond the first few pages of a book, and what makes you want to stop reading a book and put it back on the shelf?

My answer:
For me the beginning of the book has to be intriguing, captivating, facsinating. It does not matter, if it is the plot, characters, writing style or something else, but it has to keep my attention.
It happens seldomsly, that I am putting a book back to the shelves. I am quite picky to start with my choice of books. In case, that really happens, I never put a book away after just few pages. I'm usually giving it much more than that. Luckily it hasn't happened many times where I haven't been able to end a book.

  4. New follower! Meeting a movie star would be fun but very nerve racking for me! If you ever get the chance to meet Rob Pattinson I hope you do get a pic with him! Happy reading :)

  5. These book blogger hop questions just get better and better. This one looks easy but I think it’s a trick question. We all know it’s the same answer – the writing – but we all have different perspectives of what good writing is.

    Hop on over to my blog at and read my three-prong answer as I explain why I’ll decide to pick up a book or put it down in under sixty seconds.

    Happy July 4th Weekend!

  6. Hopping through. I would like to be cool if Rob or Edward walked into the room...but I probably wouldn't. I'd also love Jasper to talk in the room.
