FF and Book Blogger Hop


ACK! Your favorite book/movie character just walked into the room! Who is it and what would be your first reaction? You get extra points if you provide visual stimulation.


Oh it would be Evanna Lynch playing Luna Lovegood... I love her so much! She has been my favorite HP character since I read book 5, and I love her just as much in the movies. How could you not??

Book Blogger Hop


What keeps you reading beyond the first few pages of a book, and what makes you want to stop reading a book and put it back on the shelf?


I always give a book 100 pages to keep my interest before I set it down and mark it as a DNF. At that point if the main character(s) aren't doing anything to intrigue me, I'm done.

  2. Hi & Happy Friday!

    I am a new follower :)

    My FF,

    Have a nice weekend.

  3. Yep, I think Evanna and her character, Luna are really really sweet :D Good choice!
    I'm, by the way, a new follower, hehe.

    This is my FF answer, feel free to pass by:

    Hugs and hope you have a great weekend,

  5. I love your blog design!

    I've been using Nancy Pearl's rule. You must read the first 50 pages. If you are older than fifty, (I am not) you can subtract 1 page for every year. So, if you are 51, you only have to read 49 pages, 52 - 48, and so on.
    When you reach 100 years of age, you may judge a book by its cover.

    Lots of times I find that by page 50, I'm kind of into it, even if the book is not great.

  6. Luna is a good choice, I thought the actress they chose to play her did a great job! I try to stick with books and not stop reading, but once in a while I just have to give up and choose something more interesting!

  8. Luna is a great choice! I love her character and think Evanna does a great job! Taking about characters...they really do make or break a book!

  9. Hi,

    I love your blog. I'm a new follower just hopping by to say hello.

  10. Hi! I'm Izzy, and I'm just stopping by your blog on the Blog Hop. I also follow the 100-page rule, although in some books, it's really hard to keep trudging. If I find the book completely unbearable to read to the point that I would rather sit in boredom than pick it up, then I let myself drop it ahead of time.

  11. These book blogger hop questions just get better and better. This one looks easy but I think it’s a trick question. We all know it’s the same answer – the writing – but we all have different perspectives of what good writing is.

    Hop on over to my blog at and read my three-prong answer as I explain why I’ll decide to pick up a book or put it down in under sixty seconds.

    Happy July 4th Weekend!

  12. Ooo, cool pick! I've always thought Luna was an interesting character. :D
