Book Blogger Hop

Follow my Book Blog Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee's View.

This week's question: 

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

My answer: 

Well I really don't have anyone to discuss books with IRL.  There is one woman at work that reads the same kinds of books that I do but she doesn't read all the time.  So when she does then we talk about them.  I guess that's why I like talking to other bloggers and readers online.

Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Crazy-For-Books.

This week's question:
"Pick a character from a book you are currently reading or have just finished and tell us about him/her."

My answer:
Amelia from Hereafter by Tara Hudson.  Amelia is an 18 year old teenager that has been a ghost for 10 years.  She starts off as just a ghost wandering around, not knowing much about the "hereafter".  By the end she is stronger as a character and falling in love with Joshua, a human.  I liked her character and her willingness to achieve more.  I just think that the author could have done more with her, but maybe in the next book.  To learn more about what I thought check out my full review.


  1. Hi Jamie, yep I think probably that's why a lot of book bloggers start, because they want to share their love of books with other people! My family and hubby don't read much (although I have to give credit to my husband for at least reading my book blog) but there are YA librarians to talk to about books I'm reading at work, since I'm a librarian as well :)

    That's why it was so awesome to find the book blogging community on line and finally have a bunvh of people to share my love of reading with! Have a great weekend ~Lea

  2. Hello. I'm a new follower stopping by from Follow Friday. I have a friend that I can talk to about books, but she'll be going off to grad school in August, so I will eventually be book friendless. I hope you have a great weekend.

  3. it's always really great to have someone to share book related talk conversation with! there are some books that you just need to talk about! i've tried discussing with my cat before but she really just doesn't seem to care :P

  4. Hopping through. I have friends who read some, but no one who reads nearly as much as I do. So I blog :-)

  5. I know what you mean - people think it's weird that I read the genres I do. My old bookclub tended to read "highbrow" books and I was often bored.

  6. Hi! New follower from the hop. Just wanted to say love your blog, and I definitely understand having no one to talk about books with. Where I live people are so closed-minded they don't consider what could be so I'm at a loss.

    Hope you have a good weekend!

  7. New follower & can't wait to look around. I got my sister to talk to about books which is fun. Hope you have a great weekend.

  8. Hopping through! You didn't provide a link for the full review of Hereafter in your post, just letting you know. The premise sounds interesting though :)

    Here's my Book Blogger Hop: 4/15-4/18 post!

  9. It seems like so many people in my age group have "out-grown" reading. I couldn't imagine not reading as a choice! Painting the sky green, grass blue & water purple. In my world, fantasy is the substance of things hoped; the evidence of things not seen. Born to be a writer...for life.
