Book Blogger #11/Follow Friday #8/TGIF #3

Book Blogger Hop
Which Book Blogger would you most like to meet in real life?

This is hard as I am still fairly new (3 months) and getting to know different bloggers, but I think Alison at Alison Can Read as she often takes the time to come and comment on my posts! ;)

What character in a book would you most like to be? What character in a book would you most like to date?

Hmm...I'd love to be Eponine in Les Miserables - but in the stage musical! ;) I'd also love to be Sookie (I'm sure that's a popular choice, but I don't mind following the crowd sometimes). Or maybe Arwen or Eowyn in Lord of the Rings.

To date: Eric (Sookie Stackhouse) or Saint Germain (Saint Germain Chronicles by Chelsea Quinn Yarbro). I love Enjolras in Les Miserables, but he'd be too busy planning insurrections to go on dates with me.

 What occupies your time when you are not reading and/or blogging?

Well, my life is pretty damn hectic right now! I have a day job and the usual household chores. Then I am trying to pursue my writing career and some freelance editing work. I am also studying for diplomas in editing and publishing. I am planning my October wedding. I read lots and write letters to my penpals. Finally, if I get a spare moment I sing, play flute and piano, practise my languages and do cross stitch. *phew*


  1. I really enjoy Alison's blog. You're blog is great for 3 months :) My response is here:

  2. I get to have lunch with a small group of book bloggers on a semi-regular basis. If you're in the SF Bay Area, maybe we've met! Happy blog hop.

  7. Hi! Old follower stopping by!

    Oh, another Eric! Yeah, he's awesome. The only thing that kept me reading/keeps me wanting to read. ;)

    My FF can be found here!

    Rebecca @ kindle fever

  8. I would choose to be Wolverine because he's the only character who's close to being as masculine as I am! :)
    Cool Site. Now Following.

  9. I’ve met so many great people via the Book Book Blogger Con at Book Expo America I honestly can’t come up with a single name of a book blogger I want to meet but haven’t yet!

    I’m heading back to BBC @ BEA. I hope to see you there!

    Hop on by my blog and just say hi –

  12. The LOTR women crossed my mind too. I've seen Les Mis but must get round to reading it, it's been sat on my kindle for a while. Thanks for visiting my blog, have a great weekend.

  13. Thanks for stopping by my blog.
    New follower.

  14. Wow, you ARE busy. And yes, I agree about Eponine, even though she doesn't have a particularly happy story. She's got a strength to her that I really like...

    Thanks for playing the Weekend Hangout at West of Mars! I hope you'll play more often!

  15. I would definitely want to date Eric! Love him!

    New Follower.

  16. Hi Nicki, new follower here! Your blog design is very pretty :) I know, I'm a little late with the FF (oops) yesterday was super busy so I didn't have much time to "hop" around and meet people! Anyways, looking forward to reading your posts in the future, have a great rest of your weekend :)

  17. Hiya
    Just hopping by via West of Mars! Making the blog stops for the weekend!


  18. Hi. I'm here from West of Mars.

    You are a busy bee. I'm in a similar situation as on top of all the usual home stuff (including some renovations) and a full time job I am trying to launch a career in photography.

    The book blogger I would most like to meet - why Susan Gottfried of course! :)

  19. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm a new follower. :)
