All These Things I've Done by Gabrielle Zevin

I haven't had an IMM in the longest time. And I've also been abandoning this blog. For that, I am sooooo sorry! This weekend I will be trying to catch up with commenting, preparing posts, etccc. And it's Thanksgiving this weekend! HOORAY!

I would like to thank Macmillan Children's Publishing Group for these books! Could you also believe I haven't read for fun in a month? It's crazy impossible. I promise I'm not fading away! I'm still here! :D

Have a great weekend, everyone! And to Canadians, I hope you enjoy your Thanksgiving weekend! Yay, turkey!

The Blog Hop (16)

Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.

If you could pick one character in a book, movie or television show to swap places with, who would it be?

I always take forever to answer these types of questions that deal with characters because it's just so hard, okay! So this will be one of my many answers:

In a television show, I'd swap places with Nikita (played by Maggie Q) from the TV show called Nikita. Anyone know the show? If so, you would know that she broke free from a secret government team (called Division) who are the baddd guysss! Now they're performing operations as well as hunting her down.  So why would I want to switch places with Nikita? Because she's kick-ass, she's fit, she's good and not evil, and she has a little thing with Michael (played by Shane West, from A Walk to Remember's Landon). :)


Book Blogger Hop
Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Crazy for Books.

It’s time to spread some love beyond the borders of the Book Blogger Hop! This week, we aren’t answering a question. We are spotlighting our fellow bloggers. Find your favorite(s) author interview(s), guest post(s), book review(s), or bookish article(s) that ANOTHER BOOK BLOGGER featured on their site recently and tell us why you love it/them! As an additional challenge, find your favorite one of EACH of the categories above and spotlight all 4 (interview, guest post, review, article).

I love Audrey's posts over at Holes In My Brain so I chose a guest post of hers during "movies In My brain" which featured nothing but movies for a week in the summer. It's entitled "Guest Post: Movie to Book adaptations" and features Rebecca from Rebecca-Books! The guest post includes the latest adaptations from books to film. Surprisingly, I haven't watched most of them and I love movies but I have a rule and it is simply this: Read book first, watch its movie second.
