Follow Friday and Blog Hop!

It’s been a while since I participated in Follow Friday and the Book Blogger Hop, so I thought this would be a great week to do so!
If you’re here from these two great events, please be sure to check out the contests I have going on — there are several!
US/Canada only.
Ends 11/3
US/Canada only.
Ends 11/10
And on my cooking site, I’m giving away a *signed* copy of Cake Pops by Bakerella, along with some adorable mini buttons!

And if you don’t know about these awesome memes, be sure to check them out:

This week’s question:

“If you have, or would have a daughter, what book would you want your daughter to read?”

The Nerd and I don’t yet have any children, but I’d want my daughter to read Graceling by Kristin Cashore. I love that it’s about a strong heroine who has a dark gift, but accepts it and uses it for good instead of evil. Katsa makes her own choices and accepts who she is. I really like that.


Book Blogger Hop
The question this week:

“What is the one bookish thing you would love to have, no matter the cost?”

I’m going to have to go with Jenn on this one — I’d love to have a library in our house with floor-to-ceiling bookshelves. We’re running out of room on the bookshelf in the Nerd Cave, and I really need a new set of shelves anyway. :)

If you’re a new follower from either event, please leave me a comment so I can be sure to follow you back! :)

Happy Reading!

    Graceling is at the top of my TBR pile. I need to read it!

    Hope you come by and see my answer!

  8. Hey Arena! Just stopping by from both Hops. I haven't read Graceling yet, but I have heard good things about it. It's on the TBR list.

  14. Another new follower, stopping by via the hop!

    Can I just say that I think it's awesomely lovely that you have a blog inspired by your husband? :)

    I haven't read Graceling yet, but everyone I know whose read it tells me that the heroine is kickass. I should really get onto reading that!

    And an in-house library would be AMAZING. Totally agree with you there (I'm just jealous that I didn't think it up for my wish, haha).

    Stop by my hop :)

  15. Hopping through for FF.

    Your blog looks amazing, I'm pretty jealous of all those pictures with authors in the sidebar hehe

    Hello! :) I'm an old follower, and just started participating in the follow friday! :) I love your blog, and who wouldn't want a library in their house!?! Gah, it would be so great to have floor-to-ceiling shelves wouldn't it?

  20. Ooh, I like your blog a lot! I still haven't read Graceling! I don't know what it is wrong with me – I really need to. And I totally agree with you about the library. I need one! It'd be freaking fantastic. Anyway, I'm a new follower!!

    Everyone can always use more shelf space, it seems! I'm making the effort to keep everything tamed down to merely one bookshelf! So far, so good. The local library is reaping the rewards of me thinning down my collection.

    I just finished reading Nightshade. Such a good book, I really enjoyed it. I should have a review of it up, fairly soonish.

  28. "Nerd Cave"? Ha, LOVE it, you have a wonderful blog here. New follower! 😀


    judt hopping by to say hello, I already follow you Graceling was my pick too!

  30. stopping by from the hop & I am a new follower!

    Yes, the personal library seems to be a popular answer. I think all book junkies have this vision of their ideal reading space :)

  31. I have yet to read Graceling, but I really should, a friend gave it to me to read and said it was awesome.

  32. Already a follower but just wanted to stop by and say hello and Happy Halloween!
