Hops & Follows

This week's Follow Friday and Book Blogger Hop...

Q: It's circle time. Time for us to open up and share. Can you tell us FIVE quirky habits or things about you? We all have them...

1. I'm currently in the strange predicament of reading 4 books simultaneously. Why is that a strange predicament? I'm an one-book-at-a-time kind of girl.

2. I have a soft spot for reality shows. American Idol and the Bachelor/Bachelorette are my favourites.

3. I worry about everything. I even worry that I worry too much.

4. After a childhood of big dog breeds, I think it's time to get a little pup of my own. One day I hope to have a King Charles Cavalier Cocker Spaniel.

5. I can't wait for Lady Gaga's new CD to come out next week!

Book Blogger Hop

Q: If you were given the chance to spend one day in a fictional world, which book would it be from and what would that place be?

I feel like I've answered this question in a Hop before... anyone else have a sense of deja vu?

I'm going to stick with my original answer to this question, and say the world of Harry Potter. I would love to enter a completely different world infused with magic... and still have the chance to visit muggles.


  1. I am the biggest worry-wart, I am constantly worrying about everything but because I worry so much I have to be in charge of things (organising holidays etc) so at least I know that I've done everything that needs to be done!

  2. My husband is also a worrier! :)

    I think I might pick HP world too!

    I'm already a follower and have been for a while :)


  3. Ooh, puppies are so adorable! We have two new kittens in my house and we are having way to much fun with them. :)

  4. OH, I love the look of your blog! It's very pretty and easy to navigate. Can't wait to take a peek around :)
    As for dogs, ours have always been on the small side. Pikengese and shih tzu mostly. And anyone who calls Piks or shih tzus ugly is absolutely crazy!!! Our boys and girls have always been beautiful and have had wonderful personality! Thanks for stopping by my blog, and I'm following you now,

  13. Hi, Ms. C! Returning the follow. =) Thanks!

    1. I must have a grocery list, or I can't go grocery shopping.
    2. I collect Sleeping Beauty figurines and dolls.
    3. I eat in order, meaning I can't go on to the next thing until I've finished the first.
    4. I must read every night before going to bed, or I can't sleep.
    5. I hate mayonaise.

  14. I worry, worry, worry too, and like you I worry about worrying. My friends think it's hilarious, especially when it comes end of the semester and I'm trying to write my papers, take my finals, and grade for my students. I stress and worry,and worry, and worry I'm not worrying enough! ;)

    Thanks for stopping by and saying hello this morning. I'm a new follower!! Here's my FF.

  15. I love food based reality shows. Like Top Chef and Chopped and the Food Network Challenges. They are pure awesomeness. The funny thing is, I hate cooking. But I love watching it.

  16. Thanks for stopping by my blog. When I had TV I really liked watching Hell's Kitchen.

  17. Just hopping by, happy Friday.

    here's mine:

  23. Thanks for visiting and following my blog.

    I did think about Harry Potter as my place of visit, but then thought about the amazing scenery and adventure in Eragon that I had to choose there.

    I'm now your follower too. :D

    Have a great weekend.

  24. I worry a lot as well - you're not alone! I often get really stressed about the silliest things. Most recently, I couldn't sleep because I was worried about getting an injection at the dentist's!

    Have a great weekend!

  25. Thanks for stopping by on the hop, Ms. C! I agree - worrying has taken over my life too! But board games are the best. I've taken to playing scrabble on my phone so I can play with relatives and friends everywhere! It's the best :)

    Happy Friday!

  26. The hop question does sound somewhat familiar. Although I don't remember my original answer...

  30. Hey Ms. C! finally made it! Thanks for stopping by my place. I'm following you now. Hope you have a fab weekend.

  31. "I worry about everything. I even worry that I worry too much."

    That is just too funny. I even worry about all the time I waste worrying, most of which is not necessary.

  32. I enjoy American Idol as well, but I stop watching when all my favorites are gone (like now).

  33. Hi Ms. C! Thanks for stopping by my blog. Returning the favor. Great site! And I must confess that I share your guilty pleasure of reatlity TV!

  35. Oh, I completely know how it is with the worrying to much and starting to worry that you're worrying to much... Talk about thinking in circles, huh.

  38. Hi! You know what? I don't really like Lady Gaga that much, but when I sing, I usually sing her songs because they sound the best on me :D And I'm a big worrier too, sometimes I even worry that my worrying might someday get to me.

    Anyway, thanks for dropping by my blog and for the follow! I'm your newest follower too!

    Have a great weekend!

    Happy Hopping!

  42. Sorry for the mistake in the above post. I had to delete because instead of saying "I'm now a follower of yours" I said "I'm not a follower of yours!"

    Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog yesterday, I just rescued your comment from my spam comments section just now. So hopped over to say thanks for visiting yesterday, and sorry for the delay in responding!

  43. Returning the follow from Follow Friday.
    I read multiple books at the same time even though it makes me crazy.

    Have a great weekend.

    Monique @ AsianCocoa's Secret Garden

  44. I am also a big time worrier and closet American Idol fan! Although I'm not pleased with the results this season - I might boycot the finale. Have a great weekend!

  45. Hello!
    Harry Potter is a very popular answer!! And people think I'm strange for liking Lady Gaga but I'm ok with that! ;D
    ~Happy Reading!~

  46. Harry Potter, FTW. I love king charles spaniels. I'm big dog fan at heart, having a german shepherd mutt, but if I were to get a small dog, a cocker spaniel or king charles spaniel. My friend loves lady gaga. Thanks for stopping by my blog.


I love comments...
Almost as much as I love coffee.

All puns put aside, I really do adore the comments you ever-so-kindly post. Thank you for taking the time to stop by and leave a few words. I love hearing your view on the topic!
