Crazy For Books' Book Blogger Hop
Parajunkee's Follow My Book Blog Friday.
I'm Alison. I've been blogging for ten months. I review mainly YA with a few MG books and a weekly manga feature.
I may be a little slow to comment this weekend, because I'm in Chicago and will likely only check the Internet at night
On the blog this week -
Matched by Ally Condie
Then I Met My Sister by Christine Hurley Deriso
Barbara Casey of The Cadence of Gypsies
Fruits Basket vol. 20 by Natsuki Takaya
Questions of the Week:
Blog Hop: Since today is April Fool's Day in the USA, what is the best prank you have ever played on someone OR that someone has played on you?
I really can't think of any. There were childish things I did at home when I was a kid, like sticking the silverware in the freezer, but nothing major.
I am not a big fan of pranks. I was the victim of one too many not-so-nice pranks in middle school and am very sensitive to them. Since I know that I overreact to pranks, I figure that it's only fair that I don't participate in pranks against other people.
Follow Friday: What book are you ashamed to admit loving?
As with the previous answer, I can't think of any. I don't feel ashamed of any of the books that I love. For example, I openly and vocally love Twilight. I am not at all shamed about that. I understand that a lot of people don't love it and can also understand why. But just because a book doesn't work for one person, doesn't mean that it's an inherently bad book. If it brings other people happiness and entertainment, then it's accomplished its purpose. That being said, i don't flaunt around my YA books at work. I don't really hide them, but whether I admit to reading mostly YA depends upon the person to whom I am talking.
