Follow Friday and Blog Hop

It's Friday! Normally I would be over the top happy about that but this means it's the last weekday of my March break. *sigh* Unless for some reason I can convince my mom to let me stay home on Monday too...
Anyway, this also means today is probably the last day that  I get to post numerous times until maybe weekends and the summer. I've learned lots of important blogging things this week like scheduled posts. They are so awesome. So hopefully I'll have more than two posts a week from now on. Back to the real purpose of this post, the Friday blog hops!

Follow Friday is a weekly event held by Parajunkee on Fridays (or really Thursday evenings) where bloggers get to hop around and visit as many blogs as they can! The whole point is to discover new blogs, gain new friends and if you're lucky, some awesome followers. This week the featured blogger is Jess from Gone with the Words so be sure to visit her and say hi. 

This week's question is:

Q. How did you come up with your blog name?

I actually wrote all about this in my "About Me" page. I chose the name Tantalizing Illusions because even though I'm a huge bookworm, and I didn't want to have a blog with the word book in it. I have no idea why, but I was scared that somebody would have the same/similar blog name so I wanted something completely original. Tantalizing has always been one of my favourite words. Plus it's fun to say. Illusions has a small alliteration with tantalizing and together (at least in my head) tantalizing +illusions= books because they are stories that may appear real but aren't and they are super tempting to read. Let me know in the comments if that makes any sense whatsoever.

Sorry for boring you with that long paragraph, but now to blog hop #2: 

Book Blogger Hop

This hop is hosted at Crazy for Books so check there for the full linky list and did you know Book Blogger Hop is now a year old?
In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love of the written word!  This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books!  It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs to read! 

This week's question is from Somer from A Bird's Eye Review:

"Do you read only one book at a time, or do you have several going at once?"

I read usually one at a time. It helps me stay focused on that book and I finish the book much faster. I have a terrible memory so juggling between many books would confuse me. The only time I'd read more than one book is when I need to read a book for school. 

That's it for me right now. Hope y'all are having a fabulous Friday and a great week in general. Don't forget to leave a comment so I can visit you too!


  1. It's nice when people have different names, easier to remember :)

  2. Thanks for following! I'm visiting you now :)

  3. New follower, hopping by!

    I really like your blog name, it's very unique!
    I can usually only read one book at a time as well. :)

    Happy Friday!
    My Hop!

  4. Not everyone can multi-task and nobody should. When it comes to book sure, I can't read four books simultaneously (or even two, for that matter!) but there are times I'll juggle as many as four books at a time depending on the subject matter, the urgency or more often both.

    The real trick to this is what KINDS of books to juggle. Hop on over to my blog and learn the method behind my madness - http://www.howardshermannet

  5. Just hopping by, your newest follower. I'm trying to reach my 100 follower mark too!

    Great blog name - I had the same issue, didn't want the word "book" in my blog name either because I don't just blog about books (i'm a movie and music junkie too).
