Hopping madness...

You know how I said spring had sprung in the wonderful land of Oz… Well apparently it sprang up high and landed splat on its face coz it’s now so cold that I am frozen into submission and am now forced to listen to the ranting of the caterpillar for the next week. The evil bunny won’t even fetch me a hot cup of tea!
Unfortunately this week has not only been cold but it has also been a bit full on and time consuming in the real world. So I have missed my usual Tuesday and Wednesday posts and have yet to put up this week’s book review. I assure you all I will catch up in this next week though :)

Now for the hop, first up is Parajunkee's Follow my book blog Friday which is also hosted by Alison at Alison Can Read!

The feature blogger for this week is Holjo @ Pedantic Phooka

Q. Have you ever wanted a villain to win at the end of a story?  If so, which one??

Yes yes yes! The first one that comes to mind is in the Vampire academy series. I absolutely wanted Dimitri Belikov to turn Rose into a vampire and have them both slaughter the other strigoi he was working under and take over the world. Unfortunately I knew it had to be a different ending lol

Secondly the Crazy for books weekly hop...

The question this week is...
“Many of us primarily read one genre of books, with others sprinkled in. If authors stopped writing that genre, what genre would you start reading? Or would you give up reading completely if you couldn’t read that genre anymore?”

I suppose I would start reading more horror books again. Then again I have really mellowed in my old age (okay so I'm only 29) so I could even turn to romance. It's hard to say really. I read all the time. Be it books, newspaper, internet forums, blogs, magazines... I am always reading something. I can't see myself not reading anymore just because my genre of choice isn't available.

Happy hopping!

Hippity Hop...

Spring has sprung in the great land of oz! I was taking a wander when I spotted a white rabbit, with a mischievous look in his eye. As usual, curiosity got the better or me and I followed the little bugger through the garden.
Well what do you know, it was a trap! He lead me straight to his over sized rabbit hole (which still didn't fit my bum mind you.)
I don't speak rabbit, but I think he is holding me captive until I take a good look around the mysterious bunny hole and find some new blogs to follow. Hopefully by Monday he will set me loose in the real world once again.
For those of you who are new (or even the old stalkers) I have done a couple of reviews this week;
Oz, by Eden Elgabri and Heather Peters and
The Historian, by Elizabeth Kostova
So do check them out while your here.

Now for the hop, first up is Parajunkee's Follow my book blog Friday

which is also hosted by Alison at Alison Can Read!

The feature blogger this week is Lisa at Lisa Love Literature so go and check out her blog!
Question of the week is...

Q. If you could change the ending of any book (or series), which book would you choose? Why and to what?

Parajunkee has put up the hardest question ever, and since I have to run out of the house for an hour I am going to think it over while I'm out and come back to you! Really it's very very hard!

After returning home, I still have no clue where to start answering this question! Might have to hop around and see what everyone else is coming up with. I am at a total loss with this one.

Book Blogger Hop

The question this week is...
“What are you most looking forward to this fall/autumn season – A particular book release? Halloween? The leaves changing color? Cooler temperatures? A vacation? (If your next season is other than fall/autumn, tell us about it and what you are most looking forward to in your part of the world!)”

Well it is the start of spring here so I am loving the promise of sunshine and warmth! I am soooo over the cold winter months. I want nothing more than to be able to read books on the beach again.
As for book releases, I'm not sure. I'm still trying to get through my huge tbr list so I am trying not to look at what is coming out just yet :)

Happy hopping!
