TGIF at GReads! 
This Friday's Question:

To-Be-Read's: How big is your pile? Which book keeps getting pushed down the stack, but you keep meaning to read it?

It's a little massive. I'm not even sure I could really count. And I actually just read a book that kept getting pushed down the stack the day before yesterday: Divergent by Veronica Roth. And I freaking loved it! I think Hunger Games and City of Bones need to be read soon. I've been putting those off for forever! Tell me what I'm missing out on! ;) Maybe that's the kick in the ass I need! 

It's Follow Me Friday over at Parajunkee
The question this week is:

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

Ohhh... this is tough, because I'm not in the mood to put up with any life threatening situations and nearly all of my favourite characters are in them on a regular basis. I'd almost say Lola from Lola and the Boy Next Door so I could have Cricket, but I'm not sure I could put up with her clothing without feeling like a fool. I just don't have the guts I'd need to pull it off. I think I could switch with Aura from the Shade series by Jeri Smith-Ready. Ghosts aren't too bad... If Zachary is around! (<-- for real!) Or maybe I'd switch with Buffy for a while! At least I'd know I could kick the ass of anybody who tried to mess with me and I'd have a great group of friends! 


  1. Stopping by to say Hello!

  2. Hopping through. I love the idea of Lola's clothes, but I'm sure I couldn't pull them off.

  3. A lot of people are picking Lola and the Boy Next Door. I gotta read it!!

    My Answer

  4. Oh, YES, Hunger Games and City of Bones! Two of my most favorite series.

    My TGIF

  5. BUFFY! YES! I'd pick her every time. She is my freaking idol. And I think you could totally pull off those costumes.

    Happy Weekend, Liza. :)

  6. I kept pushing Divergent down my list too and then picked it up a few weeks ago and couldn't believe I'd waited so long! So good:) Have a great weekend Liza!

  7. I really want to read Lola and the shade series! Not enough time...too many books.

  8. I haven't read Lola yet but I just got it. Hopefully I'll love it as much as Anna... Happy Friday!

    My Follow Friday!

  9. I'm so happy for you that you've finally read Divergent. Wasn't it amazing? I'm dying to read Insurgent!

    And definitely start reading The Hunger Games - it's very addicting!

  10. drop whatever you're doing now and go read Hunger Games! it's an awesome book/series.

  11. The Hunger Games was amazing! I wasn't too fond of City of Bones, but I had just finished Mockingjay and was having a hard time getting into new books.

  12. I really need to read Lola and the Boy Next Door! I love quirky outfits! I chose all characters that are kick-ass because I would love to be able to kick some butt like they do! Haha.

    Happy Reading!
    MY FF & TGIF:

  13. Haven't read LOLA yet. Just bought it today. Good answers. Come visit me over at Livre De Amour-Books of Love Blog.

  14. Divergent was amazing wasn't it? I would have picked Lola too except for the fashion choices. I did dye my hair red velvet cupcake color so I'm slowly experimenting. I picked Anna and the French Kiss instead.

  15. Good choices! I don't think I'd be able to handle all the emotion that Aura does...I'd rather have a sword and fight people... LOL

    Will look into Lola a little more...doesn't sound like my usual read, but that can be a good thing.

  16. I went through a phase where I tried to be more daring with my fashion choices, but in the end I am really just way too self-conscious for that! I'm a simple, comfy clothes kind of gal. I admire people like Lola who are able to put their quirkiness out there in such an obvious way.
