Follow My Blog Friday - 5/20/11

Happy Friday everyone! The Follow My Book Blog and Blog Hop Friday hosted by Parajunkee's View and Crazy For Books.  If you're a new follower, please leave a link to your blog in the comments so that I can visit your blog.
This week's first question is: Can you tell us FIVE quirky habits or things about you?
OK, here are five things I feel are quirky:
1. I don’t like the taste of store bought chocolate chip cookies, either pre-made or from the frozen dough. They seem to have a funny after taste to them. I only like the ones I make from scratch.
2. I don’t ever want anyone else to do my laundry, not even my husband, because I just feel like they will mess it up. Crazy, I know.
3. Like Parajunkee, I read several books at a time, usually one or two bound books and another on my ereader.

4. After I wash my face, I have to blow my nose. Always.
5. I only like dark chocolate, I feel any other chocolate (milk/white) is a waste of calories.

The second question is: If you were given the chance to spend one day in a fictional world (from a book), which book would it be from and what would that place be?

The books would have to be Anna and the French Kiss or Die for Me, not because I want to go back to high school or meet zombies, but for Paris alone! I have been to the south of France, but not Paris. The authors’ descriptions of Paris are so lush, beautiful and romantic, it is high on my list of must visit places.

I feel like sometimes milk chocolate can be good-for example milk chocolate chips in pancakes but in general I agree about the chocolate thing. I also usually am reading two books (one physical, one ebook) at a time.

Hopping through. I only like dark chocolate too. I've been eating a square of 90% Lindt chocolate after lunch lately.

I love homemade chocolate chip cookies (or any kind really) especially when they're hot out of the oven and all soft....mmmmmmmmmm!

Stopping by through the Hop and now following, too! I only like homemade (100% from scratch) baked goods.... I just can't bring myself to buy those frozen cookies.

Take care & happy reading (& cookie baking!)

Ha! I feel like everything is a waste of calories these days. I think the blowing your nose thing is interesting... that is truly quirky.

Christy @TheReaderBee said...

I don't like for anyone to do my laundry either. Or any laundry in the house for that matter. I'm so picky!

Bookish Brunette said...

YAY! I LOOVE dark chocolate... although I don;t discriminate toward regular chocolate, but I'm not a fan of white chocolate!

Those are some fun facts. I wish I were more discriminating when it came to chocolate (or cookies) but I love just about any of them. :)

Happy Friday!

I agree about visiting Paris. What both book don't mention, however, is how awful and cold Paris is in the winter. Cold rain + freezing temperatures = not fun. I guess that goes for anywhere. I sure did love the food (in Paris) though! Hope you get to make it there one day.

I’ve seen a lot of great picks and gathered some fresh titles to add to my ever-growing TBR list. My answer will probably stun most people because the world I picked is a place most people would be scared to death of and try to escape from. Me? I want in.

Hop on over to my blog and be prepared for the unexpected – http://www.howardsherman.net

Dark chocolate really is the best, and white chocolate isn't even chocolate so it's really a waste.

Katie said...

I recently bought Anna and the French Kiss and I can't wait to read it! Everyone says it's a really great book. I also saw that you are reading Divergent. It's a great book! I reviewed it on my blog. New Follwer, have a great weekend.

Hi there,
Everytime someone mentions die for me I feel the NEED to read it!!! It's coming up, but right now I'm reading Rot and Ruin (which I'm loving btw :)) I have to disagree w/your #1. I love all chocolate chips. I cannot discriminate--though homemade are always better. I've never met a cookie I didn't like ;) Thanks for stopping by, and I'm following you now.

No white chocolate? Too bad. I also suffer from multiple book syndrome though. I just purchased an e-reader too and think that this problem will only get worse now. Found your site through Follow Friday. I'll make sure to keep up! www.conorpdempsey.com
