TGIF, Follow Friday, and Blog Hop - WHEW!

Happy Happy Friday! I am participating in three different blog "hops" this week - so welcome :) TGIF is hosted by GReads! Her question this week is:

In 2011, which new/old authors have you discovered and loved?

I have read so many great books by authors that are new to me - Terry Lynn Johnson, and Laurie Halse Anderson top the list of great authors that I have read for the first time. I have rediscovered Scott O'Dell and re-read some that I loved. Can't get enough of his novels!

Next there is the Book Blogger Hop hosted by, another great book blog to check out...her question this week is:

Which book-to-movie adaptation have you liked the most? Which have you liked the least?

I have a real thing for Nicholas Sparks books that are made into movies - I find that the movies are almost always as good as the books were. For the one I liked the least, it would have to be Where the Red Fern Grows. I absolutely loved the book, and even though the movie wasn't bad, it still didn't measure up to the movie.

Friday's are also Follow Friday over at and while I am not that into paranormal young adult lit, her blog is awesome :) This week's question is:

How many books do you read per week and in what format are they?

Embarrassing as it may be, I am just not a fast reader sometimes. I can usually read two books a week - either ebooks or regular old paper books. I am not much of an audiobook person and I am never in my car for long enough to get very far through one.

Have a great weekend, and HAPPY READING!


  1. Hello,

    Thank you for stopping by my FF and Blog Hop and for following me. I've followed you back.

    And there's not problem with reading slowly-i'd actually prefer to read slower but due to the high school education I received..well they pretty much whipped us into incredibly fast readers with their excess amounts of home work.

    I hope you have a great weekend!

  5. Thank you for stopping by my Follow Friday and for the follow. I am now following you too ;)

    I have to agree with you on the movie Where the Red Fern Grows. The movie still made my tear up but it just didn't have the power the book did.
