It's Follow Friday! #12 and Blog Hop #8



Yes, it's that time of the week again! It's Follow Friday which is hosted by Parajunkee. The question of the week is:
Do you have anyone that you can discuss books with IRL? Tell us about him/her.
To be completely honest, I don't really. Yes, I have some friends who enjoy reading; however, they're very casual readers and thus, we often don't have much to talk about. They do come to me for book suggestions though--if that makes any difference. :)



Book Blogger Hop


Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jen over at Crazy for Books and the question of the week is:
Pick a character from a book you are currently reading or have just finished and tell us about him/her.
I've just started reading Wrapped by Jennifer Bradbury and thus far in, I really do like Agnes (our lovely main character). Her mother admonishes her for reading so often and she's well spoken. Did I mention that she knows an array of languages? As I said, I've only just begun reading Wrapped and thus I can't say much more about her as a character, only that I've enjoyed her immensely this far in!

  1. Me either... My mom and sis read, but not the same genre as me. I do manage to get them to read some of my books from time to time though!

  2. I am fortunate I have a best friend and niece that I can have long discussions with, my best friend doesn't care for same genres as me but my niece is the one that got me hooked on what I read now.

    Happy Weekend!

  5. I'm like you, people don't come to me to talk about books. They come to me when they want to know if one is worth reading. :-)
    Happy Friday.

  16. Hello! :)

    I have a few people that I talk about books with in real life but the blogging community is great because there is just so much variety, I have found so many new books to read!

    I'm a new follower!

  17. I don't really have many people to talk books with either. That's why I recently started up my blog. I love that the book blogging community comments and talks so much. It's been really nice!

  20. Hey having friends who are casual readers is better than nothing :) Plus I definitely think the fact that they come to you for recommendations makes a difference :)
