It's Follow Friday! #15 and Blog Hop #11



Yes, it's that time of the week again! It's Follow Friday which is hosted by Parajunkee. The question of the week is:
It's circle time. Time for us to open up and share. Can you tell us FIVE quirky habits or things about you?

1. I prefer to sleep during the day when I can get away with it--because I love staying awake at night--it's the only real quiet time I get at home.
2. Certain words will always have movies, songs, or musicals associated with them (well, to me). An example? The word masquerade will always make me think of the song Masquerade from Phantom of the Opera.
3. If I didn't organize my TBR pile, nothing would ever get read because I go through reading "moods."
4. If I'm going to wear sandals, I have to paint my toe nails.
5. I have enough hair on my head for two--or maybe three--people. I call it "happa" hair (I'm half Asian and half Caucasian). Seriously, it's got a lot of volume, it's thick, and it's wavy so you never really get to see how long it is. 





Book Blogger Hop


Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jen over at Crazy for Books and the question of the week is:
 If you were given the chance to spend one day in a fictional world (from a book), which book would it be from and what would that place be?

My immediate answer to the question would be Wildefire by Karsten Knight and well, the place would be Blackwood Academy. Why? Because it's exactly like what I wanted high school to be--and literally living amongst gods and goddesses wouldn't exactly be a bad deal either (Ashline would provide endless entertainment, that's for sure). It's not out yet (Wildefire), but when it does come out in July, I hope you'll see what I mean. :D

When it comes to books which are currently out though, then hands down I'd choose Harry Potter as I'd definitely love to visit Hogwarts-although I'd prefer to visit it during the Marauders era. It's not that I have anything against Harry, but I think it'd be more interesting to visit Hogwarts during a time period that J.K. Rowling hasn't really written much about.

  4. Old follower stopping by-I have the same thing as your number 2. For example, whenever I'm halfway through something, I almost always sing (and always think!) "Oh! we're halfway there...oh! Living on a prayer!"

  9. I'm like that I love sleeping during the day and being up at night. My co-workers say I'm like the vampires I read in my books

  10. New follower from the Hop!

    Even though I don't participate in FF, I have to say that #1 and #2 on your list describe me perfectly. To this day I can't say the words "It's 6:00" without thinking of "God, That's Good" from Sweeney Todd. It's kind of sad, really.

    Anyway, I chose Diagon Alley as my location. Here's the link:

  11. I am not familiar with this book. There are a lot of great responses to this question and I can see why one would enjoy a school like that, particularly to be entertained thus. I chose Narnia from Chronicles of Narnia. Come by to see why.

  17. Hi! New Follower.

    I wish I organized my TBR list maybe then I would stop buying books & realize I have more books to read than I possibly get to. I have the same issue with the sandals :)

    Harry Potter world has been popular today. I'm not sure which world I would live in.

  18. New follower here! I wish I was able to be up a night more and sleep during the day. ^_^ Here's my FF & BBH: http://thoughtsatoneinthemorning.blogspot.com/2011/05/book-blogger-hop-1-follow-friday-4-in.html

    *blushes* I'm really bad about wearing sandals and NOT painting my toe nails. Or letting them go so long they are chipped beyond belief...I always forget to do them until it's time to leave to go somewhere!

  20. I'm such a morning person, there's no way I could sleep in the day... well, maybe an ocassional afternoon nap, but I'm not an up all night kind of person.

    Can I tell you how obsessive-compulsive I am with my TBR list on Goodreads? I tend to organize and re-organize it just about every day.

    Wildefire sounds really interesting! I'm hoping it's better than the Goddess Test, which I'm reading now, and surprised to see it's not as magically god-like as I'd hoped. Not that's it bad... I just thought the gods in it would be less subtle.

  21. I love staying up late. I get my best work done after dark! New follower

  22. My TBR pile is getting ridiculous; I really need to start organising it better.
    I prefer sleeping in the day as well, but unfortunately that's not an option most of the time because my house is so noisy!

    Have a great weekend!

  24. Haven't read Wildefire, but I plan on it! I've never read the Harry Potter series...I know, I know. So I can't say I would want to go there.

  26. Happy Hop Day!
    New Follower :)

    I like the first quirk but if I thought I could get away with it, I would never sleep. I always feel like I'm going to miss something.

  27. I have the same quirk with words. Mine usually relate to songs.

    Here's mine:

  28. Gotta agree with your HP sentiments. I just dig the backstory of the Marauders and I would die happy if Rowling would publish an official sequel.

  29. I’ve seen a lot of great picks and gathered some fresh titles to add to my ever-growing TBR list. My answer will probably stun most people because the world I picked is a place most people would be scared to death of and try to escape from. Me? I want in.

    Hop on over to my blog and be prepared for the unexpected – http://www.howardsherman.net
