Friday Hop

Friday, August 19, 2011

Off to college on Sunday.  I am so nervous and excited, I just don't know what to do anymore.  I should be packing but I've decided to do it last minute.  Packing won't be so bad.  And I've already packed my clothes (which turned out to be a bad idea), but now I have almost nothing to wear until Sunday.  Don't worry, I plan to keep you posted.  I've been thinking if I should keep the blog up and running for the first few weeks I start college.  I'm going to try to because the blog's birthday is in 4 days.  I planned big things!  All I have to do is to keep in the mind set that Kody Keplinger wrote her first book, The DUFF, in college; then I think I can read and keep the site running.  Are you a college student book blogger?  How do continue with your blog while having so many classes and so much homework?  Anyway, after I hop for a bit, I'm sitting down to read instead of packing. Yep, I am a rebel. Onward to the point of this post: Friday is the best day of the week. Because every Friday I get to participate in two awesome memes. Follow Friday from Parajunkee and Blogger Hop from Crazy-for-Books.com are memes, a great way to make new friends. Here's the questions below:

 If you could write yourself a part in a book, what book would it be and what role would you play in that book?
I would love to be a part of the Hunger Games.  I thought long and hard on what role I would play and I finally came up with it!  I want to be Haymitch's cleaning lady.  I'm not quite sure if they had cleaning ladies, I know there wasn't any in the books, but I think that would be cool.  Haymitch was one of my favorite characters, because I loved his attitude.  Cleaning his house would be so much fun, but just being there with one of my favorite characters would be beyond awesome!

What’s the LONGEST book you’ve ever read?
I'd have to say one of the textbooks for school.  They are so long and then they expect you to take notes and highlight.  Ugh.  If we are talking about the books I review here, then I'd have to say The Sweet Far Thing by Libba Bray.  I was about thirteen or fourteen when I first started the book, after accidentally dropping the poor thing in the snow, I decided it needed time to dry.  The whole series sat on my shelf for a whole year.  Then I decided to read it again.  The third on, The Sweet Far Thing, has 819 pages.  I might have read more books with more pages than that, but that one comes to mind.

I'd love to hear what book you want to be a part of.  Happy reading and hopping!  Have a great weekend!  And don't forget, the author of Babe in Boyland, Jody Gehrman is giving away a copy of her book on my blog.  Find out how to enter HERE

  2. I don't think I'd want to be in the HG series! SCARY!
    I picked the River of Time series by Lisa Bergren. I think it would be fun to travel back in time.

    Goodluck in college and keeping up the blog!

  4. I wouldn't want to clean up after Haymitch. I bet his house would smell funny. Well I guess if he had a cleaning lady it wouldn't be bad. Check mine out!

  6. Most people would guess I’d write myself in the role of a hero in a fictional adventure of some kind. But that would be only partially correct. As is my norm, I throw a curve ball in my answer that makes perfect sense one you follow my logic. Follow me back to my blog at http://www.howardsherman.net and follow along the logic with me!

  7. I would love to be a part of The Hunger Games. Although probably at the end of Mockingjay. I don't know that I could have survived during the rebellion. =o
