Book Blogger Hop/Follow Friday/Update

Wow, I almost forgot! Today's Friday! Good news, folks, I've caught up on my reading and have new reviews set to pop up on Tuesday for the next three weeks. Yay! Also good news, the paper edit of my reality show promo reel is done and ready for the editor. After we get the finished product edited, it's off to the races, er, pitches!

To all those in Japan, Hawaii, and everywhere else affected by mother nature, my thoughts are with you! I've been a fan of Japanese entertainment, manga, dolls and overall culture for so many years that I feel a bit connected to the country, even though I've got no real ties to it. The images of the earthquakes and water overtaking whole towns is quite sad. My thoughts are with you!!!

This Week on the Blog:
Review: Dramacon
At The Movies...

And onto the hops!

Book Blogger Hop
The Question of the Week is:
If I gave you £50 (or $80) and sent you into a bookshop right now, what would be in your basket when you finally staggered to the till?

Answer: If I were given $80.00 for books, I would probably have these:

-A hardcover copy of 'Hex Hall' (retail: 17.00)
-A hardcover copy of 'Blackheart: Vampirates 4' (retail 17.00)
-A hardcover copy of '43 Old Cemetery Road' (retail together at around 20.00)
-A hardcover copy of 'Matched' (retail: 17.00)
-A paperback copy of 'The Host' (retail: 10.00)

That's 81.00 right there. Then I'd probably head to the DVD dept and see if they had anything cheap. :-) Course, this is all assuming I didn't have a staff discount at said store. If I did, I would probably pre-order the the newest Knightley Academy book. :-)

Most of the books in my cart would be hardcover copies of books that I've read as ARC's and want in a more durable binding.

The Question of the Week is:
Just like Ashley said (love it) "Ashley the girl..." who are You the Boy/Girl, instead of You the Blogger?

Answer: I had to decipher this question, but now I get it! Brooke the girl? I'm a college graduate (2007) with a BA in Television Directing. (Yes, that is what it says on my transcripts!) I want to work in the television/film industry as a writer or producer. You might ask why I, a college grad, am still looking for work in my chosen field... Well, it's because I can't seem to get enough money together to live in California. Television and Film projects all come out of that state, whether or not they shoot in that state. To get solid footing in the industry, I'll need to move. I'm in the works of trying to get out there sometime this year to really start my career path. At the moment, however, I'm content with working at a bookstore as a minion (whoops, I mean part time employee) and working on my reality show.

I live at home with my family and two adorable dogs. You might wonder how in the heck I can survive my family, but I can. I quite enjoy them... most of the time! I'm still looking for my prince charming, but am sure one day we'll find each other. It wouldn't hurt if he turned out to be Zac Efron or Gregory Smith! :-)

I collect many things, but my largest collection is dolls. Mainly, I collect Skipper (Barbie's Little Sister), Asian Ball Jointed Dolls, Monster High, and My Little Ponies. Recently, I've learned how to re-root dolls who have suffered bad hair cuts. It's so much fun giving them a new look. If you have any gently used Barbie dolls that you want to donate to my hobby, please let me know. :-)

Anywho, there's so much more I could talk about, but that's it for now! I hope you all enjoyed the hops this week and I hope to see you again next week!!!

Happy Blog Hop!

Re-rooting Barbie hair? That sounds so complex! Awesome that you can do that though :o) What a unique talent!

Stopping by from the blog hop. I'm a California girl born and bred and I've had some dealing with people in "the industry." It's a tough world out there but don't ever give up on your dreams. You can do it! You know what else? I had a hard time figuring out the question of the week too! I'm glad it wasn't just me. Anyway, have a great Friday!

Wow! What a great question this week. I always peek at other people's book piles at the checkout link at B&N. That doesn't make me a voyeur, does it?

The exhibitionist in me has posted my own bookstore shopping list -- and it's not as predictable as you may think!

Hop on over to my blog for all the suspense and chills of my TBR list -

Happy Hop Friday!

Television production sounds like fun. I understand what it's like to live someplace where no one is hiring in your field though. It sucks.

Hopping through. I've never been a Barbie person but I have a small collection of Madame Alexander dolls. I want to get more.

Oh, you have such an adorable blog! Definitely following! Nice picks for your $80 list. Hex Hall was a really fun read. I can't wait to get my hands on a copy of the second book, Demonglass. As far as barbies go, I have a huge trunkful of them in storage somewhere. If I ever come across them again, you're totally free to have at them ;)
You can see my blog hop posts over here if you're interested. I'm looking forward to getting to know you and your reads better in the future :)

I'd fill it with children's books. My grandbaby is nearly four weeks old and I need to get started on her bookshelf.

Lulu (The Bookworm is Here!) said...

I had to figure out the follow friday question too! Good answers for both :)
