Book Blogger Hop/Follow Friday/Update

Hey weekly hoppers!  I hope your week was eventful!  Mine sure was-- I participated in my first virtual book tour, cut a good 6 inches off  my hair and now have a stylish shag cut, and have been enjoying re-watching 'Ghostwriter: Season One' on DVD.

And onto the hops...


Book Blogger Hop
The Question of the Week is:  Tell us about one of your posts from this week and give us a link so we can read it (review or otherwise)!


My Answer: This week I participated in my first Virtual Blog Tour and posted my first author interview! It was a fun experience! Were I to choose a post from this week to highlight, it would be the author interview with Richard Denning. Reviews are fun to read, but interviews, especially those that don't only talk about the book, are a great opportunity to meet the author, virtually, of course!





The Question of the Week is: What is your favorite romance hero-type? Stereotype wise. Do you like the strong silent type or the brute macho man?


My Answer: Oh dear. I don't know! I don't go for the 'bad boy' per say, but I wouldn't turn down a sarcastic charmer like Damon (Ian Somerhalder) from The Vampire Diaries or a handsome hockey player! :-)


Truth or Dare:  Today's dare is... find a song that reminds you of a book. Could be the latest book you've read, or your all time fav. Tell us about the book and show us the video in a blog post.


Keeping this in the paranormal realm, the 'Fallen' series by Lauren Kate has always reminded me of the songs of Evanescence. You probably don't need a description of the series, but just in case-- 'Fallen' is the first book in a YA paranormal series that tells the story of Luce, a seemingly normal girl, and Daniel, an Angel who loves her. (And Miles, whom I totally think she should be with because of how much of a dork Daniel was in the sequel 'Torment', but I digress!)


Here's a video of 'Bring Me To Life'...



Thanks for hopping by and see you next week!!!!

I do like the sarcastic charmer too, but I'm more of the bad boy hero girl. Thanks for stopping by.
