TGIF, Follow Friday and Book Blogger Hop

TGIF is a feature that can be found at GReads!

Book Love: Do you share your books with others? Who was the last person you sent a book to?
I do share my books with others but I shiver when I DO. My books are my babies and lending a book to someone is like…letting my child be kidnapped. I don’t know if it is going to be treated well, fed, watered…loved. I hate it. But I do it because I love my friends.

The last person I sent a book to was a fellow blogger last month as I was taking part in the Random Acts of Kindness hosted by booksoulmates. Unfortunately I am skint and can hardly afford books for myself so it will be a while until I can gift a book to someone else.

Follow my blog Friday is a weekly feature that can be found at

Q. What are you doing to prepare for an upcoming zombie apocalypse and/or the return of Mel Gibson to the silver screen? (Both of which could be terrifying.) 
There’s an upcoming zombie apocalypse! Why wasn’t I told *grabs brown paper bag and tries to stop hyperventilating).
It stands to reason that there is no point in me trying to prepare as, if life were a film, I would be the extra in the red Enterprise uniform getting bludgeoned by the Klingons and in the event of a zombie apocalypse I’m the one getting eaten while the heroes drive of in a truck reaching desperately out to try and grab my hand and MISSING! So is my life.

Share your favorite post from the last month and tell us why it's close to your heart!

I don’t really know. Last month is the one time I have posted so many things in one month – 31 posts!! But I would say that the post on My Favourite Love Triangle may be my favourite post. Because a) I am thinking of doing some more love triangles b)I am so excited about this series of books!


  1. Hopping through. I occasionally share books with my husband but I get nervous when he is too rough with them.
    New follower! Love the drawing on your background.
    My Anniversary Hop

  2. Oh, the only persona I really share books with is my friend Sophia, she's not in the blogging world, but I'm always sending her books as presents.

    My own books? I don't like sharing, because the moment I loan out a book, I get the urge to read it :P

    Re Zombie Apocalypse? I'll stock up Salt and watch lots of Buffy/Angel/Supernatural, to study up on the subject

  3. Hi there, new follower here! Love your blog! :)

  4. I know exactly what you mean about lending books out. I've had the misfortune of doing so only to get them back with spines bent, pages fold, etc...AWFUL.

    Have a great weekend!

  5. Hah, my books are my babies too! I should be a little more careful who I lend my books out to. Last time I lent my cousin a book, her dogs chewed it up. Thank goodness she bought me a new one! I am also fresh out of money but I'd like to participate in RAK sometime this year!

  6. Hi Alex, NF from the FOLLOW. It's funny you say "blethering," we say "blathering," or "blithering."
    Hope you will come on by!

  7. LOL - I would probably just give up and surrender to the zombies. Get the bloodshed over with, you know?

    Glad to have found you via the Hop!

  8. As the saying goes – the best defense is a good offense. I’ve got that covered! My preparations for the zombie apocalypse are not just intricate, they’re stylish. I’m not talking “last stand” stuff here. I mean to lure in the zombies and slaughter them wholesale while we sip champagne and watch.

    How am I going to do that? Follow me back to my blog at and read all about it.

    Thank G-d it’s Follow Friday!

  9. I ALWAYS share my books with others. In fact, I just started giving away a book every month!

    I'm stopping by via the Hop. I hope you will visit my blog, Readerbuzz. I always follow back.
    And I am doing a monthly giveaway. This month: Anna and the French Kiss!
