This week's question: If you could have characters from a particular book meet and form an epic storyline with characters from a particular TV series, which would you choose and why?

Mmmmm, Spike <3
I'm having a lot of trouble with this one...I've been sitting here forever wracking my brain, but none of the combinations I'm coming up with would really work. I have vampires on the brain because my two current favorite TV shows are Vampire Diaries and True Blood, but I'm not nuts about the book versions for either...and I keep thinking about Buffy, which is my other favorite vampire show...maybe a combination of Buffy and the Southern Vampire/Sookie Stackhouse books? Sexy, bad-ass vampires, werewolves, shifters, demons, all kinds of other creatures, and a slayer thrown in for good measure? Buffy and Sookie as BFFs? Hmm...how about you, what would you choose?

TGIF at GReads Week 13: TGIF is hosted by Ginger at GReads - be sure to check out her blog and join in the fun!

This week's question: Show & Tell: Where do you grab a book and get lost in it? Show us your favorite spot you like to read at.

<--- This is my favorite chair in my library. My library is beautiful - just 5 years old (as much as I loved the history of my old library, the place was literally falling apart, so a new one was built 5 years ago right across the street. It's extremely modern looking - you'd never know it was a library from the outside, but it's really nice inside), and filled to the brim with books. There are huge floor-to-ceiling windows along two walls, and there are chairs like the one in the picture all the way along one wall. There are also chairs at the end of the stacks near my chair, a gas fireplace, and a gorgeous grandfather clock. That chair is my favorite - it's in a corner between two windows so I get tons of natural light, and it looks out on the street, so I can watch people coming and going. I love being surrounded by all those books, it makes me a very happy girl. You can find me there almost every Saturday immersed in a book with a pile of books at my feet. 

I just happened to take this picture on my phone back in April so I could tweet it, so I don't have pics of my other reading spots, but they are: my corner of the couch for long reading stints since it's comfy; my bed, where I sit to read before going to bed; and my computer, where I read all my ebooks. I was going to take pictures, but they all just happen to be horrifically messy right now, so you'll have to be content with my library pic lol. 


Where's your favorite reading spot?

Happy Friday, book lovers! I have a giveaway going on right now for a copy of Love at Absolute Zero by Christopher Meeks. The link to that is at the top of the blog under my header. Tomorrow, I'm going to be posting another giveaway, this one for a signed copy or ebook of Being Human by Patricia Lynne, so be sure to come back for that!

If you participate in either of these memes (or even if you don't), I'd love to hear from you, so please leave a comment and I'll be sure to visit you in return. :-) Have a great weekend!

  6. I don't know if Buffy and Sookie would get along! I think Buffy would be weirded out by the whole YOU CAN HEAR WHAT I'M THINKING?! thing...and then ask if Sookie's ever caught a potential mass murderer that way.

    But I'd love to see them girl talk about the pluses and minuses of vampire boyfriends. :D

    I love your description of your library and the chair! The new libraries (like mine too!) that have fireplaces and really good reading spots are so wonderful. The old ones are great too, but I love the trend of social spaces.

    Happy Friday to you!

  10. James Marsters is narrating a vampire book called The Greyfriar, if you haven't already heard of it. I've heard him, he sounds amazing!

    You can hear some of it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MOugs5EDzHI&feature=youtu.be
