Friday Blog Hops!

This was a fun week with a ton of reading done. Also, huge thanks to everyone who has already voted in the Hades vs. Supernaturally cover poll! So far the results are pretty equal but that could change at any moment. Now, off to the blog hops!

Book Blogger Hop

The Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jennifer from Crazy for Books. Here's her short description of it: 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! 

The question this is:

"Pick a character from a book you are currently reading or have just finished and tell us about him/her." 

The book I'm currently reading is Black Hole Sun by David Macinnis Gill. The character I'm choosing is Vienne. She's strong and seriously bad***. She's beautiful and lethal. Vienne is loyal to Durango her chief but isn't afraid to tell him what she thinks. She doesn't get along with others all the time but she's so completely herself that she's free in that sense. I love her character!

Follow Friday is kindly hosted at Parajunkee's View. Follow Friday is all about visiting new blogs, following and having fun. This week's question is:

Do you have anyone that you can discuss books with IRL? Tell us about him/her. 

Yes I do! I actually have 3 people! Though of all of them I'm the more serious reader. One of them is a classmate from drama class. We read the same kind of books and we always talk about what we're reading or a book we'd recommend in class. 

Another is a girl I met in English class last semester. I since then gave her a list of books to read and she's been reading them. (And loving them from what I hear!) She's one of the first to here me gush about a must read.

 Lastly there is my locker & plays flute in band with me buddy. While going to class we often comment on what we're reading. We also have similar tastes in books and she usually has brand new books so I love seeing what she's reading. I know I'm lucky to have found so many bookworms in one school! And from what I hear there are more I haven't met yet.

Phew, that was a long. I've always had a habit of rambling on. Anyway, now it's your turn! If you're a new visitor, welcome! And hello to my older visitors! What are your answers? Leave a comment and I'll  return the favor. :)
