Follow Friday + The Weekend Book Blogger Hop (6)


Once again,
 it's time for Follow Friday (hosted by Parajunkee's View) and the Book Blogger Hop (hosted by Jennifer at Crazy-for-Books).  I always feel like a game show host saying that every week. :) It's going to be more a quick Who Wants to be a Millionaire special than a Wheel of Fortune marathon this week though, because as of now I am exhausted in a big way.  Anyway, a big hello to my beloved followers and anybody stopping by via the Blog Hop or FF.

This week's Follow Friday featured blogger is  fellow YA book blogger Ginger-- be sure to check out her blog G-reads.  And the question is: How long have you been book blogging?
I started my blog on October 13th... so this blog is officially about five weeks old!  Wow, it's still such a baby in the great big blogosphere world, but this feels like an eternity to me.
The question for the blog hop is:
 "Since Thanksgiving is coming up next week, let's use this week's Hop to share what we are most thankful for and what our holiday traditions are!" 
OK, first off, I'm thankful for all the people who follow and comment on my little blog-- you guys are so awesome!  I'm thankful for my family, my dog Zoey and my horse Magic.  And I'm very thankful for the five days off school.  My family always congregates at my grandmother's for a Thanksgiving dinner-- nothing too unusual about that.  We don't really do a lot to celebrate Thanksgiving-- we usually migrate briefly to our peaceful mountain house in Tennessee, and save all the chaos and hub-bub for Christmas. 



Here's a quick re-cap of what's been going on at A Myriad of Books this week: 
Giveaway of Tyger Tyger by Kersten Hamilton + a special Tyger Tyger necklace-- be sure to check out my interview with Kersten and my review of the book!
In My Mailbox (#4)
Review: Eon by Alison Goodman
Top Ten Tuesday: Baddest YA Villains (I had so much fun with this one...too much fun)
Waiting on Wednesday (#5): Blood Magic by Tessa Gratton

Thanks for stopping by my blog!  I wish everyone an amazing weekend, full of relaxation, a good book, and... Harry Potter!  It's torture to have missed the midnight premiere when you've been a fan since you were seven, but I'll get to the theater if I have to hitchhike. :)

How long is too long?

I was blogging from my official website about the interactive fiction books
I was writing before the words "blog" and "blogging" entered the English
language.

And I blogged a lot about many things -- not just books.

I need to blog off topic a little more, I think. I don't want people to the
idea I'm too two dimensional!

Thank God It's Follow Friday!

Enjoy the weekend!

Hopping through. Congrats on blogging a full month! I've been book blogging for about 6 months. I had a food/fitness blog for awhile before that, but I think book blogging fits my personality more.
