Follow Friday/Book Blog Hop (2)

Follow Friday is a meme hosted by Parajunkee.

This week’s question is: Do you have anyone that you can discuss books with IRL? Tell us about him/her.

Actually, there are very few people I know in real life who like books as much as I do. But one is definitely Preet, who recently started a book blog that you can visit here. She and I talk about books all the time, especially now that she has a book blog as well.

There are also my friends Tanisha and Manveer, who usually have their nose in an intense Ellen Hopkins book. They practically force me to read those books- but hey, they’re awesome. Ooh, and there’s Lisa, my best friend from elementary school before she moved to a different high school- we usually talked about MG books because that’s how old we were at that time- usually about one of my favourite series, Percy Jackson or Artemis Fowl. Good times, good times =)

So yeah, IRL, it’s usually those people I talk about books with. The rest I’m just okay to talk guys/random stuff with =)

Book Blogger HopThe Book Blog Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Crazy for Books, and it’s a great way to connect with other book bloggers.

This week’s question: Pick a character from a book you are currently reading or have just finished and tell us about him/her.

Right now I’m reading Warped by Maurissa Guibord (it’s an awesome book, by the way) and I want to talk about the male lead William de Chaucy. Aside from being the impudent gentleman and all, his voice is pitched so perfectly- like, it actually seems like a guy from the sixteenth century is talking. Maurissa Guibord is awesome! And yeah, I’m developing a bit of a book crush on this gentlemanly guy =) Oh, and my review will be up in a while.


  1. Stopping by from FF. I'm a new follower.
    I reallyliek your blog name.

    Have a nice weekend.



  2. thanks 🙂 I'm about to go visit your blog!


  3. Ooh! you have lots of real life friends to talk books with! Ellen Hopkins :O Very nice. I've only read one book by her, which was so dark and poetic. I loved it. I need to read her Crank series! (I think that's what it's called?) 😛

    Happy Friday, Rida!


  4. it's always really great to have someone to share book related talk conversation with! there are some books that you just need to talk about! i've tried discussing with my cat before but she really just doesn't seem to care 😛

    i'm a new follower!
    would love for you to come check out my blog and return the favor?


    Elise and Heather


  5. I love your blog name….so cute.

    Stopping by from the blog hop.

    Question is interesting this week.




  6. Hopping through. It's great that you have friends you can share books with. I didn't have any friends who read like me in h.s. (although I didn't read as much then either).

  7. What? Not talk to your school librarian? That's the PERFECT person to discuss books with! You should try it! Thanks for visiting my blog…


  8. I know what you mean- there are only a few people you can talk to about books 🙂


  9. I know, right? I only figured that out AFTER leaving elementary school. And now I'm on great terms with my elemen. school librarian 🙂


  10. haha, your cat! I should try the neighbours' dog sometime 😛

    All right, I'm heading over soon!


  11. thanks! I'll be checking out your reply soon 🙂


  12. Yeah- SOME friends 🙂 most of our group is obsessed with other things like hockey players and all…

    Yeah, I'm going to get Crank from the library soon- I think it's going to be amazing.

    Thanks, and the same to you, too!


  13. I have Warped in my TBR – pile, and reading your desribtion I am looking more forward to it. I love stories with time travel. I am a new follower 🙂


  14. Thanks for the follow! I love your blog 🙂

    Warped is amazing-awesome! I just finished reading it =)


  15. Hi, thanks for stopping by my blog! 🙂 Following you as well!

    Really? Not many know too much about Sweden. If you go, you should wait until the summer! It's freezing during the winter. Unless you want a lot of snow, then go as north as you can. 😉

    And I am lucky to have my people, and you're lucky to have yours to talk to as well! But the real discussions definitely are for the book/blogging communities. So glad I found them!

  16. I wish you were in one of my high school classes. I would have you join my student book-club and we would talk books all the time. Cool that you have a friend that blogs. i wish I did. I am a new follower.


  17. I remember talking about my favorite MG books (I love PJ and AF, too!!) with some people during my office aides class in middle school. But I don't really have anybody to talk to. 🙁

    Happy Reading! 🙂
    iLive, iLaugh, iLove Books


  18. That'd be cool- there aren't too many people who love books like us book bloggers 🙂 Thanks for the follow!


  19. Thanks! I've always been interested in Sweden- it seems so pretty. Ha, I get enough snow as it is- I'll most likely be visiting in the summer 🙂


  20. Haha, at least you've got other friends who love sports. I love sports, but none on my friends do! And now that I've got a non-functional hip at the moment, it makes me sad because I'm not doing any sports! lol.

    I should borrow it from the library, too! 😀


  21. Oh, only some of my friends love sports- they're all just crazy about WATCHING hockey :/ Rugby is a dangerous game :O all my friends who play it have got hurt somehow. But you're brave. I'd never get out of bed if that happened to MY hip.

    Which book, Warped?


  22. I don't watch hockey, haha, but I hear everyone talking about it all the time at school. Yeah, rugby is one of the most dangerous sports out there! Yup, people I know play it have gotten hurt. Bruises are so common too! I've been sleeping and lying on the couch ever since my hip dislocated, lol! It's made me very, very lazy…Not good.

    I meant the Crank series 😛 I must borrow it from the library someday!


  23. I only watch hockey because my brother is obsessed with it 😐 That must be tough for you, being a temporary couch potato when you seem like such an active person. Is rugby season still going to be going on when you're all healed? I hope so, even though you probably don't want to get injured again 🙂

    Yeah, I ordered Crank from the library but it's taking forever to come 🙁 Oh, you should borrow it- I heard they're awesome books.
