Happy Friday!! (1)

The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Jen at Crazy for Books.  It's a great way to meet other bloggers and check out some cool new blogs.

This week's question is: 
“What are you most looking forward to this fall/autumn season – A particular book release? Halloween? The leaves changing color? Cooler temperatures? A vacation? (If your next season is other than fall/autumn, tell us about it and what you are most looking forward to in your part of the world!)”

I am looking forward to cooler temperatures!  This summer was brutal!!  I am ready to be able to wear sweaters and hoodies and to be comfortable outside.

 Also, this week I decided to participate in Feature and Follow Friday.  It is a meme hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read.
This week's question is:  If you could change the end of any book (or series), which book would you choose?  Why?

I would complete change the end of My Sister's Keeper.  I am not going to put any spoilers here but the ending was BRUTAL and not anywhere near how I wanted it to end or thought it would end.


  1. I hear you about My Sister's Keeper. :) I'm ready for it to cool down myself. It was a hot one this year. Following you from Feature and Follow Friday. Would love a follow back on my blog: Prowling Books In the Lair. Thanks! I have a book spa giveaway going that I'd love for you to enter either as a gift for yourself or a great present for a friend: Book Giveaway.

  2. I know! This summer has been hot! I usually am not a fan of cold weather but this year I welcome it!

  3. I love dressing in layers so I'm ready for cooler temps. I also love watching football and fall brings a new season of Survivor! :)

  4. I loved the movie.

    I'm a new follower. Have a great weekend!

  5. I've only seen the movie of this.

  6. I want the cooler temps too. It is way to hot out there Have fun reading and enjoy your long weekend ;)

  7. This week’s question is perfect for Labor Day weekend with the “official” end of summer and all.

    I’m all about fall! I love all four seasons and I’m sorry to see summer go (I hope to get in a few more swims in my pool) but I’m also amped up for Autumn.


    For most of the same reasons we all like autumn – fall foods, Halloween, the chill in the air, changing leaves and candy corn. But I’ve got a scary slant to why I’m angling for autumn. Hop on over to my book blog at to read all about the murder, mayhem, seriously spooky stuff and even some BSP!

    Happy Labor Day Weekend!

  8. The ending was brutal in My Sister's Keeper, but I hated the movie's ending even more!

  11. Aww, that sucks it was so brutal. :/ Haven't read it though, but have been interested.

    Happy weekend! I'm a new follower. :) My FF can be found here!

  12. As a side note. You should read Madamme Tussaud! I loved that book! I bought it as soon as it came out and it is just full of French and history.

    Looking forward to the leaves changing but then that mean crappy cold Wisconsin weather to come afterwards :(

  13. Just hopping through. Friday Post! Old Follower.

    I didn't do the Follow Friday post this week, but as I've been reading them---My Sister's Keeper is the one ending that comes to mind that I would change.
