Follow Friday/Blog Hop (April 15th, 2011)

Today's question:  Do you have anyone you can discuss books with IRL?  Tell us about him/her...

My answer:  I don't know anyone who likes to read the same style of books as me, so for the most part I only discuss them online.  However, my husband is sweet enough to let me read him to sleep sometimes and he always listens to my blog posts as well.  He is super-sweet and so supportive!  :)

Book Blogger Hop

Today's question:  Pick a character from a book you are currently reading or just finished and tell us about him/her...

My answer:   I just finished one of the books from the Gripping trilogy (read that review here) and the main character is named Lia Kahn and she is a very complex person ever since her big accident that left her life in jeopardy and forced doctors to download her memories into an artificial brain with a robotic body.  She used to think being rich enough to buy anything she wanted and having a cute boyfriend and tons of friends was the way her life would always be, but so quickly things can change...   Not many people feel the same about her once they see what she's actually become and she has to learn what her new role in life will be and what life really is without a heartbeat, the ability to breathe or cry and no one from her old world to support her anymore.  She is an interesting character to read about and I look forward to seeing how her personality develops in the final book.  :)

And now for all the Nook and NookColor users out there it's Free Friday again and this week is Divine, by Karen Kingsbury and it has 4.5 stars out of 5 with 36 ratings so far, so might as well download it!  :)  Click here for your free ebook from B&N and I hope everyone is having a great start to their weekend!

Oh and thanks for stopping by everyone, whether you're a new or old follower, I love to see visitors checking in and leaving comments!  <3

  7. Aww sounds like we both got lucky in the husband department <3

  8. That's great! My fiance loves that I love to read... means more video games for him. I tell him all the funny bits. I'm already a follower. My FF is at Coffee Table Reviews

  9. I think its awesome your husband will listen to you talk books. My husband will ask me if the book is good and when I start to tell him what its about he will kind of just roll his eyes. LOL. I won't complain to much though as he does give me the money that supports my reading habit.

    Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by my blog.

    I have a question too. it is probably little weird question and comes from the fact that I am new in blogging world. What is Nook and Nook Color? :)

    I also like that through books and blogging you meet new people from different parts of world.

  17. For years I was literally all alone in my reading habits. I loved reading UF and my friends loved to tease me about it. I guess I could've tried talking to one of them towards the end, but he mostly read an author I didn't read. But oh well! Now one of my BFFs is getting into UF thanks to me and of course I have all my blogging friends!

    Here's my Friday Hops

    Have a GREAT weekend!

    Jessica@a GREAT read

  18. OMG, that book sounds intense. I'm having all sorts of deep thoughts about downloading my brain and having a robot body. That would be kind of...horrible...actually. I think I'm going to definitely need to pick up that series.
