Follow Friday (2) + the Weekend Book Blog Hop (3)

At long last, Friday has arrived!  Which means that it is once again time for Follow Friday (hosted by Parajunkee), and the Book Blog Hop (hosted by Crazy-for-Books).  I'm combining the two in a single post this week.  If you are dropping by via Follow Friday or the Blog Hop, then welcome to my blog!   
The weekly Blog Hop question is:
"What is the one bookish thing you would love to have, no matter the cost?"

Well, I'm going to have to agree with our blog hop hostess on this one-- I would love nothing better than to have an enormous library filled to the ceiling with crammed bookshelves and scattered throughout with cozy chairs.  *Sigh*... one day.  As it is, I barely have room in my bedroom for two bookshelves. 

The question for Follow Friday is 'What books would you want your daughter to read?'  Well, if I had a daughter, I would all but force her to read the Harry Potter series-- of course.  Otherwise she might be missing out on half the things I say and all the nerdy HP references. :)

And this week's featured blogger for Follow Friday is Julia @ My 5 Monkeys  Be sure to stop by her blog as well to comment and follow.  And while you're at Parajunkee's View, don't be afraid to enter her Halloween Mayhem giveaway for a chance to win A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness and other goodies related to the book.  Look for the Halloween Mayhem button on my sidebar for a direct link. 

While you're here, be sure to check out my reviews for Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce, and Eyes like Stars by Lisa Mantchev.  If you're in the mood for just one last creepy read before Halloween, then check out my review of Bonechiller by Graham McNamee.    
Thanks again for stopping by and looking forward to meeting everyone.  Happy Follow Friday, and Happy Blog hopping.

i should be wanting an organized home library, but what fun is that?

what i'd want at any cost is full collections of everything my favorite authors have ever written. I want everything Ai Yazawa has ever written to be available, and IN PRINT in English.

where would I put it all? . . . oh, so that's why everyone dreams of an organized home library!

Happy Halloween!

I'm here for the blog hop and Follow Friday! I just love these. Answer for the Hop is an IPad or Kindle. Answer for the Follow Friday is: The books I would chose would be Dr. Suess' when she was young then as she grew older I would definitely recommend the Nancy Drew and Trixie Beldon books! I loved them when I was young. Here my links and you can find me on facebook too!!/judithleger

Harry Potter is a great choice! Also my answer to the first question was my own personal library too - seems to be a very popular one for book bloggers :D

Hopping by from Follow Friday. I am following you and would love it if you follow me back at

Hopping through. I agree with you on the Harry Potter books. All kids should read them.

KIKA said...

ahhh Yes, I completely agree, a home personal library would be the stuff of awesomeness. and HP? aaahhh yes I would read them, and then make my daughter read them. Yes that is an admition that I have not read the Harry Potter books yet *hides head in shame* But I will fix that egregious error and be back in the good graces of the book gods.

Loving the blog! hopping on through and am now a follower :)

I completely agree with both of your answers! A gigantic personal library is the stuff dreams are made of =) And of course every child for the rest of forever needs to read Harry Potter! I believe we've witnessed the birth of a classic, which is just too cool.
