This week’s Favorite is: Book Character You’d Like To Go Shopping With

 

Even though I’m not much of a shopper, this is an easy one. If I were to go on a shopping spree, I would go with Becky Brandon (nee Bloomwood)!

What about you? What character would you like to go shopping with?

Hi, Everyone! I hope you had a good week. Ours was good but busy. (No surprise there, right?) My mother-in-law and I made pepper jelly and fruit jelly this week. I love canning. The kids and I watched Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library this week. It was a cute adaption of Chris Grabenstein’s book. They loved it. My oldest wants to read the book, and my middle thought it was EPIC! I’m currently reading book 3 in the series, Mr. Lemoncello’s Great Library Race. I’m loving it! It’s a fabulous series. Also, I received some great books this week for the Fall Reading Challenge hosted by BookSparks, and some of my subscription boxes arrived. It’s been a great book mail week! 🙂
 
How was your week? Did you get any new books?

Book Blogger Hop: Halloween Edition!

About the Book Blogger Hop

The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer from Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the meme on February 15, 2013.

Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end on Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.

This week’s question: 

Off the book topic – What is your favorite scary movie? (submitted by Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer)

 

I don’t watch scary movies.

 

I don’t like scary movies.

 

Do you have a favorite scary movie?

This week’s Favorite is: Book I Wish They Made a Movie Of

 

I would have said Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library by Chris Grabenstein, but it has been made into a TV movie. I haven’t watched it yet, but I can’t wait to see it. I would also like to see the Wendy Darling series by Colleen Oakes made into a movie. But I would really love to see The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern as a movie. It is one of my favorite books.

 

I just finished a fantastic novel, Gilded Cage by Vic James. I know dystopian novels are trendy right now, but this one was just amazing. I’d love to see it on screen.

 

Wings of a Dove by Elaine Barbieri

 

What book do you wish they would make a movie of?

Who is your favorite horror/suspense author and why? (submitted by Kitty @ Vicarious Bookworm)

 

I’m not a horror fan, so I don’t have a favorite horror author. And I’m not sure about a favorite suspense author. I do like suspense books, but I can’t say I have one favorite author.

 

I don’t read horror/suspense.

 

Do you have a favorite horror/suspense author?

It’s been a very busy week. I’ve been reading, editing, and blogging. I’ve also been running the kids around like crazy this week. I’m glad they have Monday off. It will be nice to have a day where we don’t have to go anywhere. I had a bunch of book mail this week for the Fall Reading Challenge and the Magic of Memoirs blog tour, both hosted by BookSparks! I can’t wait to share these books with you. I also won Ice Kissed by Amanda Hocking via a Goodreads giveaway! I can’t wait to read it. I loved the Trylle trilogy, and I can’t wait to revisit that world. How was your week?

This week’s question: 

Bram Stoker’s Dracula and Marry Shelley’s Frankenstein are both considered classics. Have you ever read either of them? (submitted by Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer)

 

I have not. I’m not big into horror novels. However, I feel like I should read these . . . maybe someday, but probably not.

 

Embarrassingly, no. Looks like I have some work to do.

 

Have you read either of these classics?
