Book Blogger Hop #6 and Follow Friday #3

Book Blogger Hop
"Since today is April Fool's Day in the USA, what is the best prank you have ever played on someone OR that someone has played on you?"

Well, I can't think of pranks as such, but I can be a bit gullible at times and one Christmas, when I was a child, I asked my mother if we were having fairy lights on the tree. My mother shook her head and calmly told me that this year we would have gnome lights....and I believed her!

What is the book that you really don't want to admit to loving?? 

Hmm...for me it's definitely Twilight. I am a huge vampire fan and there are other vampire authors out there that I love who are much better writers than Meyer and yet I still have a soft spot for Twilight. To make matters worse, I am also known for reading those deep classics and literary fiction pieces (I adore Joyce's Ulysses for example) and so some of my friends gasp in collective horror when I admit that I enjoyed Twilight!


  1. Its funny I haven't read Twilight yet. I just can't do it. But my boyfriend has read it and loved it.. and I always ask him not to tell people that he loved it cause it makes me feel weird being around a 36 year old man that admits to loving Twilight. I mean I love him.. but its a bit embarrassing you know :)

    Well Im a new follower from the Follow Friday.

  10. At first I wasn't going to participate in this week's Book Blogger Hop. I'm not even sure why.

    But here I am. And I'm glad! To dispel any false impressions people may have had about me being a old, stodgy fuddy-duddy I'm happy to share some of my very best pranks with you.

    Highlights include - low-grade explosives, eggs and salt shakers. Get all the side-splitting details over on my blog -

    They date back to my younger years as a Brooklyn boy which brings about some introspection.

    I'm going to go pull some pranks today. Look out world! I'm coming out of prankster retirement!
