Book Blogger Hop and Follow Friday

Book Blogger Hop
 "Pick a character from a book you are currently reading or have just finished and tell us about him/her."

*Spoilers from The Dead-Tossed Waves*
Currently reading: The Dark and Hollow Places
Catcher's gone through a lot. In TDTW he was bitten by a zombie, and was thought to have been turned. He lost everything. All his friends, his family.. even his life. Thankfully, it turned out that Catcher is actually immune. He carries the virus, yet he does not succumb to it, meaning he can walk among the undead and not have them tear him to pieces. He doesn't feel as though he can get close to anyone, in case he accidentally passes the virus along. He's really struggling, and yet he is willing to do whatever it takes to protect Gabry, Annah and Elias. 
In short: I love him.

"Do you have anyone that you can discuss books with IRL? Tell us about him/her."

Well... Not really! I often tell my best friend, my mum or my little brother about a book that I'm reading, but as they don't really like to read there is only so much I can say! My best friend reads more adult books than I do (I think she thinks she's a tad superior, haha) and so we don't really have any tastes in common. Although I have convinced her to download Vampire Academy on her Kindle... now she just has to read it!

Leave your comments and links below! What are your answers? Have a great weekend everyone!


  1. Glad to hear that your friend has been persuaded to download VA Amber! Might how to keep on at her to read it though!

    Please check out my FF - I was a little late this week so can't put my link up on the FF link!


    Regards, Sam

  2. I have friends but no one in my family reads quite like I do

  6. Just hopping by! I haven't read The Dead Tossed Waves but I've heard good things about it. I'll have to pick those books up one of these days. :)
    Happy Friday!

  7. I did love Catcher, but I loved Elias more. However, I think once I hit The Dead and Hollow Things I'm going to fall in love with him. I kind of like how Carrie Ryan switches up her narrator's book by book. I'm loving that series more than I thought I ever would. Book one I didn't like a ton, but the 2nd I LOVED.

    I'm your newest follower!

  8. I have no one IRL... the hubby tries, but despises reading!

  9. A new follower hopping by!

    I agree, most of the people IRL don't like reading much, so I mostly tell the friends who do like reading.

  10. That`s why the book community is so amazing. When you don`t have someone to talk to IRL, We book bloggers are ALWAYS here haha.

  17. I'm in the same boat. Some of my friends like to read, but not always the same books I like. My parents and boyfriend will listen to me when I talk about books, but they don't have much to contribute to the conversation.
    At least we have this community here, right? You can always tweet or email me!
