Book Blogger Hop/Follow Friday/Literary Blog Hop

Hi everybody, welcome or welcome back! Happy Friday hopping!

Book Blogger Hop

Here's this week's Book Blogger Hop question:

“Highlight one book you have received this week (for review, from the library, purchased at the store, etc.) that you can’t wait to dig into!”

I have to confess I didn't get a book yet this week, but I have one coming in the mail that I will probably get today or tomorrow, so I'll use that. It's The Damned Busters: To Hell and Back, Book 1 (Hell to Pay) by Matthew Hughes. I bought it for a friend for her birthday a few weeks ago after I saw it in the store and thought it sounded funny and interesting, so I ended up buying myself a copy that got backordered but is on its way from the late Borders (cue sad sigh here). It looks like a lot of fun so I am anxiously awaiting its arrival!

This week's question:

Let's step away from books for a second and get personal. What T-Shirt slogan best describes you?

My response: This is a funny question! I of course have a 2-part answer. If I am not already reading a book, the answer would be a shirt that says

"I'd rather be reading"

Now if I were already reading and wearing a t-shirt, it would most likely say

"I want to procrastinate more, but I keep putting it off" 

I had fun looking at funny shirts for this response, there are so many out there.

I'll be updating this post as more hops and follows get posted today!


  1. I am with you on the procrastination.

  13. My book came from Borders too. I'll probably go back for more, but I really should get some more reading done first!

  14. I have that book on my wishlist! I've posted a picture of an adorable baby pickle. It's an illustration from the book I'm highlighting. Please come see what book I'm reading!

  16. I loved this week’s question! I’ve made so many friends in the book blog world and am really impressed with so many blogs it was hard to hunker down and make a choice.

    But I did it! I’m shining the spotlight on a Jersey girl! Hop on over to my blog at to find out who she is and discover her amazing book blog.
