Book Blogger Hop and Follow Friday


Share your current fav television show! Tell us a bit about it...

I have two favourites that I just can't choose from. The first is the CW's Supernatural (Friday nights, 9pm EST) starring Jensen Ackles (<3) and Jared Padalecki. They play two brothers who are supernatural hunters. They travel around the US (and at one point they were in the UK!) hunting "monsters" such as demons, ghosts and vampires. The show is currently in its sixth season, and I'm certainly hoping there's more to come! It's such a fun show, and watching the brothers' relationship is one of the main draws. As well as Jensen (see below). Dean Winchester has some of the best lines on television.

[after being arrested for murder, fraud etc]
Henricksen [special agent]: You think you're funny?
Dean: I think I'm adorable.

My other favourite show is also on the CW (Thursday nights, 8pm EST). It's The Vampire Diaries, starring Nina Dobrev, Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley. As you may be able to tell, the show is about vampires - and occasionally the odd werewolf. There's too much going on to really explain, but it is such a great show, you should definitely check it out if you haven't seen it already. Damon Salvatore (IS), again, has some of the best lines of television. He needs them, really, as he has so much going on in his life at the moment. And Nina Dobrev playing two characters at once definitely makes for an interesting viewing!

Damon: It's cool not growing old. I like being the eternal stud.

Book Blogger Hop


Do you ever wish you would have named your blog something different?

Some of my long term followers may remember that I actually renamed my blog a while back. When I first started this blog, I didn't know it was going to be primarily for book reviews. I was going to keep it as a travel journal for when I visit Australia. But that took too long coming around (2013!) and so I decided to turn this into a book blog. And of course, "Coconuts and Cream" wasn't the best name! So a couple of months into blogging, I renamed my blog. I'm glad I picked "Books of Amber". It fits nicely, and I think it has a nice flow to it.


  1. I love The Vampire Diaries too (though I'm a bit behind) and I love your new blog name :)

  2. Alice - VD is amazing :D How far behind are you? :) Aw, thank you <3

  3. Damon sure is an eternal stud! :)

    I love Supernatural too, but I have fallen about a season behind! I need to get on the ball and catch up!

  4. He is, isn't he? :D Season 6 of Supernatural is really good. It's different... but great nonetheless!

  5. Damon is so HOT!

  6. Dropping by from the Hop. I haven't seen either of those shows but agree that the guys are hot! :)


  7. I love your blog name!! And I am totally going to check out Supernatural! :)

    Happy Hopping!

  8. Old follower...great answer! Mine started out as something different too!


  9. What's in a name? Everything! A name is a label, a description and a promise. I'm very happy with mine - "Howard Sherman, Implementor" but it was quite a journey to get there.

    Hop on over to my blog and find out why - http://www.howardsherman.net

  11. I really love both Supernatural and The Vampire Diaries!!! I've been watching them both since they first started airing. I'm such a huge fan of Sci-Fi/Paranormal genre shows, plus it doesn't hurt that there are so many gorgeous guys in them! :) Have a great weekend!

  12. Oh Dean. I laughed out loud at that quote. I love him! Haha. I do think however that this is the last season. *Sigh*

    I think the name of your blog is really cute! I love it!
