TGIF ~ FF ~ BBH ~ 6/29/12

This post is where I combine 3 different Friday bookish blog hops and the questions posed by each.  I just couldn't leave any out!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Q: Birthday Wishes — Blow out the candles and imagine what character could pop out of your cake…who is it and what book are they from? 

This was really hard!  I finally came to the conclusion that I need mothering advice.  So I pick:

Marmie from "Little Women".

Little Women (Penguin Classics)

I'd like to know how she kept her sanity while raising 4 daughters when I'm holding onto mine by a thread with just 2!

Q. Do you have a keeper shelf for books you loved? What books are on that shelf and why?


I don't really have a keeper shelf.  I don't like to re-read books so as soon as I read a book I usually pass it along to someone else through http://www.paperbackswap.com/.
 
There are some books from my childhood on my headboard in my room at "Home" that I would never get rid of.  I guess that would be my keeper shelf.

Q. Best I've Read So Far: We're half way through the year (crazy how time flies!), which top 3 books are the best you've read so far this year?

Rugged and Relentless (Husbands for Hire, Bk 1)
 
Before Ever After
 
Waterfall (River of Time, Bk 1)

Happy Friday!

  5. I don't really like to re-read books either! Very rarely will I ever do that. I like to pass them along too or give them to the library!

  9. You definitely took a different look at this question! There I was thinking of all the swoon-worthy vamps I could think of and you're being very practical.
