Follow Friday Week 7 & TGIF @ GReads Week 3

This past week at Ramblings of a Daydreamer:

Book Reviews:
Smokin' Seventeen by Janet Evanovich 
*****
TGIF at GReads Week 3: TGIF is hosted by Ginger at GReads - be sure to check out her blog and join in the fun!

This week's question: Character Envy: If you could be one character from a book, who would you choose & why?

This is such a hard question!  There have been a lot of characters that I've envied or wished I could be in their shoes for one reason or another - they got to travel a lot, they had lots of friends, they were madly in love, they had glamorous lives, etc.  The first character that comes to mind and really stands out is Jude from Jewels of the Sun by Nora Roberts.  She reminded me a lot of myself, and she got to move to Ireland (something I've always wanted to do) and fall in love with a hot, sweet Irishman (something else I've always wanted to do lol).  She didn't have magic powers or a glamorous life or live a fairytale, but her story was real and her emotions rang true, so I guess if I could trade places with any character, it would be her.  As much as I live in my own little fantasy world, I'm a simple girl who wants simple things.

This week's question: Let's step away from books for a second and get personal.  What t-shirt slogan best describes you? 

What would Bono do?
Anyone who knows me personally or has visited my blog before will know what a U2 fanatic I am, so I don't think I really have to explain this one!  Runners-up would be:

I'm not random, I just have many thoughts
I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it
I have issues

 I have a charm on my charm bracelet with that last one lol

Have a great Friday and a wonderful weekend, everyone!  If you participate in Book Blogger Hop, Follow Friday Fun or TGIF - or even if you don't - be sure to leave a comment (I love comments!) and I'll visit you in return!

  3. Great slogans but I'm going to stick with the "i don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it". That one suits me really well xD

  7. Happy FF from a returning follower. Nice choices. I love the one about enjoying insanity; being completely sane would be boring.
