Follow & Friend Friday ~ 08/19

Every Friday,  Parajunkee hosts Follow my Book Blog Friday! So welcome to another stop on this hop!

It's fairly simple- follow the hosting blog, the feature blog, and then use the links to discover new blogs to follow! And if someone follows you, be kind and follow back! It's a fun way to find new bloggers to read :)

Featured Blogger for this week is Belle Books

Q. If you could write yourself a part in a book, what book would it be and what role would you play in that book?

Okay, confession: for a long time I've had this dream of really making a difference. I study political science for a reason: I'm not sure exactly WHAT I'd do, but I'd love to accomplish something. I wouldn't want to be in something as tragic as The Hunger Games (as much as I love it), because at the same time I don't think I could handle that much tragedy. Same reason I wouldn't want to be in a romance book- I can't handle that emotional rollercoaster ride. Maybe something more like Wither by Lauren DeStefano and Rhine?

Or you know who else I really loved? Sydney from Bloodlines by Richelle Mead. I loved her, because I felt like I related to her so well. Almost like she WAS me. So there you go- an uninteresting fact about me. ;)

P.S. If you're looking for a fabulous new series to get in to, check out my current giveaway for a copy of Marianne de Pierres' Burn Bright (Night Creatures #1)! CLICK HERE

Brenna said...

Haha yepp! I'm a poli sci major (I mostly study theory and some international relations) and French translation minor. Fun facts that are boring! ;)

Thanks for stoping by Melannie! I'm about to stop by yours as well :)

Danielle Gorman said...

Great answer, I feel the same way. That's why I want to be a spunky side-kick. No drama. Thanks for stopping by. I am loving your blog!

Very intriguing choices. I'm your newest follower and would love for you to visit me when you get a chance.


TheJennaGirl said...

Ok, confession. I haven't read ANY of those books! Eek, I know, I'm lame! I do have the Hunger Games Trilogy on my shelves and I plan on starting them this weekend.

Hey, thanks for stopping by my blog! I followed you back AND I'm going to enter your giveaway because it sounds awesome.

P.S. I'm diggin' your blog design. I'm a big Disney Fan and this is so magical-Disney-esque. Love.

Making a difference is important. It may be why I'm a teacher, don't know. But I like your answer.

Thanks for visiting StuckInBooks.com FF

And BTW stay on Team Ash's side. I finished the series recently (Iron Knight) - you will not regret staying on this team.

Alyssa (Reader's Refuge) said...

I can understand the desire to not have so much drama in the romance department. Great answer!

Thanks for the follow btw- I returned the favor ;)

Tracy Smith said...

Just hopping through from Follow Friday. Great answers.
Here's my Follow Friday:


Mimi Valentine said...

Same here! I want to make a difference in the world and I think that a dystopian society would be a great place for that! I just LOVE The Hunger Games and Wither -- both are two of my favourite dystopian books so far! :)

Your blog design is so pretty, Esther! And I just love your name!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I'm following you back for sure!

Hope you have an awesome weekend!

Lea said...

Happy Friday! I'm an old follower :)

Great answers! Hmm... I don't know if I could do Rhine's world either though-- I'd actually be dead by now lol, since I'm 26!

You can see my FF post for this week at the link below-- would love if you stopped by! Have a great weekend :)

LibrarySnake said...

Great answer :)
You're right, the romance genre would be too much.

Rebecca said...

Definitely a great answer! I wouldn't be able to handle too much tragedy like The Hunger Games either, though. Most of my favorites are too dark for me if I'd write myself in, actually!

Have a wonderful weekend! :) I'm a new follower. My answer can be found here!

LindsayWrites said...

i'd love to be my own sort of Katniss character. I recently dyed my blonde hair brown, and now I feel all katniss-y lol! (I WISH!)

Followin you! Hope you'll come by my blog and tell me what your fav book of 2011 has been so far!


Cristina said...

New follower. I have the Bloodlines series but I haven't read it yet. Still on my TBR. *shaking my head sadly*

SweetMarie83 said...
