Friday Memes 11/18

Follow Friday is a weekly blog hop hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee. This week's features are Lauren's Book Bag and Books and Barks.

This week's question is...

What books do you want for Christmas?

All of them. All the books. 

This is probably not practical. But what I really want for Christmas is for all the books I've been waiting for to be published! Since I can't magically speed up time, for now a few of the books on my wishlist are The Warded Man by Peter V. Brett, Lord of the Fading Lands by C.L. Wilson, and Half-Blood by Jennifer L. Armentrout.


TGIF is a meme hosted by Ginger at GReads.

This week's question is...

Which books are you most thankful for receiving from other bloggers, friends, family members, or publishers?

I'm really happy I discovered the PNR & UF Fanatics group on Goodreads this summer. They've given me so many recommendations, plus sent me some books I wanted! You guys are the best!

  2. There are SO many 2012 books that I wish Santa would bring me early. New follower!

  18. I really want to read Half-Blood, too.

    I'm a new follower and I'd love if you'd follow back.

  19. LOL - your original answer was spot-on!

    I could also do with that whole "speeding up time" thing - it would make having to wait for the next book in some of the series that I collect easier. :)

  28. Hi, just stopping by for the Friday Follow. A little late, but I'm new at this so it takes me forever. It’s gonna take me all week to get thru this list. Lots of new authors to meet.

    I'm from I'm a new follower here.

    When you come to visit my blog, you might want to stop and take a look at the new TELL-ALL INTERVIEW I just gave about my THREE YEARS OF HOMELESSNESS. During that time, I wrote and published THE HOME STREET HOME TRILOGY. I just finally got a new apartment and after a month of rest, I felt ready to open up and tell what it was like to live through this experience and write my books. I hope you will take a look at this UNIQUE INTERVIEW.

    Thanks, and nice to meet you.

  29. Oh I love your answer about PNR and UF Fanatics group being the perfect group to say thanks to!

    I am a new follower of yours!

I love your comments! I try to respond to them...eventually!

This is now an award-free blog. I love and totally appreciate that you thought of me, but I know myself better than to think I would be organized enough to pass them along, and that doesn't seem fair.
