Book Blogger Hop and Follow Friday




Question


Inspired by the inane twitter trend of #100FACTSABOUTME, GIVE US FIVE BOOK RELATED SILLY FACTS ABOUT YOU.




Silly facts, eh? Okay.
1. I'm slightly OCD. I bet that a lot of you are, really. All the books in a series have to be matching sizes and covers on my shelf. If I have to get covers shipped over from the US then so be it! Also, if I have one book in a series, I have to buy the rest. Even if I haven't read the first book. 
2. I have a never ending TBR pile and wishlist. Seriously. I want every book.
3. I don't have a bookcase! Can you believe it? I really need to get round to buying one, but at the moment my books are sorted into various piles around my bedroom. Which is the smallest bedroom in the house!
4. I often worry that hard copies of books are going to run out. As in, people are going to stop printing them altogether and just sell e-books. Because of this, I refuse to buy e-books and stock up on hard copies.
5. In the past, I have gone through a lot of phases with my reading criteria. Last year, I read mostly adult books with a few YA thrown in. But at the end of 2010, I rediscovered my immense love of YA. I am so happy that I did. I can't see myself ever leaving this genre now!

Question
 If you could physically put yourself into a book or series…which one would it be and why?
Just one? *thinks, and keeps thinking for ten minutes* It depends if I could choose the terms, really. For example, if I was to put myself into the Vampire Academy series, I'd have to be friends with Rose and Dimitri's girlfriend. If I was to be in The Mortal Instruments, I'd want to be a Shadowhunter. So.. my answer is that there are too many to choose from, but the top five would be:
1. Vampire Academy
2. The Mortal Instruments
3. Harry Potter (of course!)
4. Soul Screamers
5. The Saga of Darren Shan

  1. OCD - check.
    Massive TBR list & wishlist - check.
    No bookcase - che….wait what?! How is that even possible?! *is flabbergasted*

    I thought VA too but then I kept on thinking about Dimka and that whole "issue". I really wouldn't want that to happen haha.

  3. My TBR list is crazy & my books are piled against my wall! I have a bookshelf, but it's waaay too small.

  4. Yeah, I'm also kind of worried about actual books stopping. I love having the feel of a book - breaking the spine open, turning the pages. I'd hate for that to stop.

    Good answers! Happy Hopping :D

  6. Apologies in advance for my answer this week as it will not immediately resonate with the book blogger population which happens to be 99.5% female.

    My choice is a book series geared towards guys which won’t enthrall the vast majority of my fellow book bloggers (who are almost entirely female) with the extensive discussion of powerful weapons and sexy milspec gear, beautiful women, eye-popping action sequences (with occasionally obscene violence), and the like.

    But there IS something in my answer that just about everyone of the female persuasion can benefit from my decidedly “books for guys” post. Hop on over to http://www.howardsherman.net to find out what it is.

    Happy Hop Friday!

  9. Oh gosh I'm OCD about my books too! I'm sure there are lots of us out there :P
    *sigh* Will we ever read every book on our TBR??
    Eeep I do buy ebooks but they can never replace a real book I swear.

    And I'm with you on MI and HP, they're just too awesome ^_^

    Have a lovely weekend!

  11. I'm OCD about my books too! If I can get matching copies then I will, but it's so annoying when they change the covers halfway through the series, and you can't get one that matches yours... :( I didn't think about Vampire Academy, I'd love to be friends with Rose, I think she's be awesome. And Dimitri... :L Have a great week!
