This week's question: It's that pesky magic book fairy again! She has another wish: What imaginary book world would you like to make a reality?

Anyone who's visited my blog regularly will probably already have guessed my answer. I really wish I wasn't so predictable, but in cases like this, I just can't help it. If I could have any imaginary world be a reality, it would be the world of Harry Potter - Hogwarts, Hogsmeade, Diagon Alley, yes please! I can't tell you how much I fell in love with this world and these places while reading (and rereading) the books, and then seeing them come to life in the movies.

TGIF at GReads Week 9: TGIF is hosted by Ginger at GReads - be sure to check out her blog and join in the fun!

This week's question: Book Disappointments: Have you ever come across a book you were so stoked to read, but it failed miserably in your eyes?
 
I'm sure this has happened, but nothing comes instantly to mind. There have been so many books that people rave about and I wonder 'could they really be that good?' and then when I read them, I realize yes, they are actually that good. For the most part anyway, obviously that's not always the case. But it doesn't hurt that I'm pretty easy to please when it comes to books!

Book Blogger Hop Week 12 - This is a weekly meme hosted by Crazy For Books.  Be sure to stop by her blog to check it out.  This week's post is here.

This week's question: As a book blogger, how do you introduce yourself in your profile?


I don't have my Google/Blogger profile posted on the blog, but I have a short intro at the top ("Welcome to my blog! I have eclectic reading tastes so you'll find reviews from pretty much every genre (with an emphasis on YA, paranormal, romance, fantasy, and mystery), as well as a bunch of different bookish memes and information about my journey to becoming a published author - my debut novel, Blue Sky Days, will be released early 2012!"), and an About Me page in my tabs, where I talk about my writing, reading tastes, and add a few personal things.

Happy Friday, book lovers! This week, I revealed the cover for my upcoming novel, and tomorrow I'm going to reveal the trailer! It was definitely a labour of love, and I'd be tickled (did I really just say that?) if you came back to check it out! I'm also going to be posting the link to my new official website. Don't worry, I'm still going to blog here, the website's just for information about my book and other writing. Have a fantastic weekend!

  5. This week’s Book Blogger Hop really threw me a curveball.

    That’s because I don’t call myself a book blogger. I never even considered myself a book blogger. Sure I blog about books and book-related topics week after week. But for some reason I never saw the label of “book blogger” applying to me.

    If you’re wondering why then please hop on over to my blog and find out – http://www.howardsherman.net

  6. This week’s Follow Friday question is a hoot! In typical Howard Sherman fashion my answer isn’t a book world. No way. Uh uh.

    I picked an imaginary UNIVERSE.

    You know how the saying goes – if you’re going to dream, dream big!

    And I did! Follow me back to my blog and explore this imaginary universe with me – http://www.howardsherman.net

    Thank God it’s Follow Friday!
