Meme: Follow Friday (2)

Hosted by : Alison and Parajunkee
Week 2 of me doing a follow Friday. YEA! I think I'm finally getting back into the swing of things.

Q: If you could only have ONE – one book – for the rest of your life. Don’t cheat…what would it be?

Who knows this answer? Just kidding but if you know me then you probably guessed something to do with Vampire academy right?
I don't want to pick one book from the series but if I have to I would choose the first book aka Vampire academy. If you haven't read the series then be careful reading my answer...Here's why----We get pretty much all my favorite characters (exception being Adrian because he's not until the 2nd book) Rose, Lissa, Dimitri. What's even better is we get to dive into the world not knowing much about it. I can live it over and over again. Dimitri is always going to be the Dimitri I love in this book..No strigoi changing. It's just wonderful!

If you haven't read the book...READ IT!

Favorite Series Banners

I've seen these all over the place, and never did put them on my site. So I figured since I'm adding new content and changing things I would go ahead and add these cute banners. I've read all these books. Well at least the first in the series and loved them so I'm now going to pimp them out to you. :) If you would like to obtain your own you can find them here at I'm Loving books

If you're curious as to what I thought about a particular series check out my reviews to see if I wrote one. I know for a fact that 6 or so I haven't. 

I discuss

Sometimes I get in the mood to chat about something bookish so this is where I will be adding those. If you have any suggestions on what could be discussed just leave me a comment below. I am totally game for anything.

More than anything these will probably be movies that were turned into movies that I've seen, and decided I would put my two sense in about. Ex: The Host, Beautiful Creatures.

If you haven't noticed sometimes I tend to go on a rambling spree because of something completely unrelated to books whether it's my job, family, friends, or life in general. I try to be as personable on my site as I can because to me it shows everyone that I'm real. If that makes any sense. -shrugs-

Bookish Pictures

You'll notice that besides books I love pictures. I don't really know why. My facebook page has so many random pictures I've taken it's unreal, but I love it. Now I'm not going to go and post those random (and when I say random I mean it. We're talking pictures of the sky, snow, any and everything.) I thought it would be interesting to post my random book pictures. Pictures of me with my books, list I've made, signings I've gone too, collages, and what not. 

Here's a collection of all the signing and tours I've been to since I started my blog back in Sept 2010.
It's not to many, but I'm hoping as time goes on I'll be able to add more.

These are just pictures of random places I put my books.

Pictures of random bookish things like bookmarks

These are pictures of my list of books I have.

These are pictures of books in series that I have.

I started this when I had my spiral of lists I kept to tell me what books, movie, cds I had. 
These are my collages of books so far just in my spiral.

It's not hard to guess what these pictures are of. :)

Pictures I have drawn from book covers just about anything else. :)

Top Ten Tuesday: Memorable Secondary Characters

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the girls over at The Broke and the bookish.
Topic this week: Top 10 most memorable secondary characters.

1.) Sydney from The Vampire Academy series
In Vampire Academy Sydney is the alchemist, who doesn't really like the vampire because she thinks they're unnatural. I love her because she's so tell it like it is.
2.) Adam from If I Stay
He's Adam. I mean what more could I say. He stays with Mia through everything. 
3.) Link from Beautiful Creatures
You always have that best friend who just makes you laugh.
4.) Chubs from The Darkest Minds
I loved chubs in this book. He's so serious and he takes a while to warm up to Ruby, but you learn that he's definitely got a kind heart.
5.) Vi from The hush,hush books
I know everyone else seemed to hate her, but I liked her she told it like it was.
6.) Tybalt the cat from Anna Dressed in Blood
I know this one is a little odd, but reminded me of my cat I had.
7.) Magnus Bane from TMI
He's so out there.
8.) Lend from Paranormalcy
Can change into whatever he wants, and cares for Evie no matter what she is.
9.) Sam from the shiver series
I haven't read this book a long time, but I remember him being so sweet and caring.
10.) The weasley twins
It's the Weasleys what more is there to say?
