It's Friday: Weekly Recap, Follow Me Friday {#11} and TGIF

TGIF at GReads! 
This Friday's Question:

Book Blogs That Make You Smile: Pick 5 book blogs you visit often & think others should, too.
Oooh, I love this question. I'm very new to blogging and over the past few months I've found some amazing bloggers, so this is going to be tough to have to narrow it down. 

BJ at Dark Side of the Covers: I love her reviews and her Let's Talk About... posts. She has a way with words and she's funny, which I love! She was also one of the first people to ever comment consistently on my blog and her comments are always very thoughtful. GOOD PEOPLE? She's definitely one. 

Wendy at A Cupcake and a Latte: Wendy has a beautiful blog and she really works hard with consistant updates. If I want to know about new books, cover reveals or interesting reviews I go to her blog. And I go to her blog every day anyway to see what she's posted. There is ALWAYS something new. I also love that she pays attention to the lesser known and independently published titles. On top of that she's a total sweetheart. I spam the hell out of her on twitter sometimes and she puts up with it like a champ! Yeeeeah, Wendy! (p.s. She has an awesome giveaway ending soon: check it out!)

Lisa at A Life Bound by Books! I recently discovered her blog, we got to talking on twitter and then had an awesome late night chat. She's got a really fun blog and obviously puts a lot of work into as well. She also turned me on to Kings of Leon! Check her out!

Jenny at Supernaturnal Snark is a total sweetheart and an amazing blogger. I love her reviews and she's just awesome. Check her out.  

Kate at Nomalicious Reads: I do like "professional sounding" reviews on occasion, but usually my favourite kind of reviews are the kinds when people sound personal. Kate's reviews feel personal and they're detailed, but quick to read. And I really like her layout. It's very simple and easy on the eyes! 

Anna at Literary Exploration is totally as cool as her sunglasses. Her and I are twitter buddies and I think that is actually how I found out about her blog. I think. I can't remember. But I do know that I love to go lurk her blog and I love to pester her on twitter. Join me in pestering her! 
I honestly read and love A LOT more blogs than just 5 and it was horribly difficult to narrow it down. I've been thinking about doing a bi-weekly feature where I bring attention to blogs I like, so keep an eye out. 

 It's Follow Me Friday over at Parajunkee and Alison Can ReadThe question this week is:
Q: What superhero is your alter-ego?
I debated back and forth on this and was thinking about putting either Gabrielle from Xena, Jeannie from I Dream of Jeannie (she is practically a superhero, okay?) or Buffy. I chose Buffy. 


  1. That's a good answer! I wasn't sure if we were supposed to pick one or make up our own. Either way, I don't have one lol. It's not something I have though about.

    Have a good weekend!

  2. LOL- my alter ego is Buffy too...or maybe Sydney from Alias...;D

  3. I was going to pick Buffy, too, but I wasn't sure she qualified as a superhero. I should have had more faith in her, lol.

    I'm going to look at some of the blogs you've listed! Have a great Friday!

  4. Aw, thanks for the mention, Liza! :)

    Fun superhero pick! I'm actually marathon-viewing Buffy at this very moment. I love how she's both tough and *nice*...yes, this is my first time watching...better late than never, though, right?

  5. Oh, I love all of your picks for super hero's but ended up going with Gabrielle! Jeannie would have totally fit me as well!

    Rie @ Mission to Read

  6. Buffy is definitely your best choice :) I would be Buffy so I could slay the Cullens!! MAUAHAHA! Oh and I think your daughter would totally be my best friend if she lived here. And was older... :) Instead I just have you<3

    THANKS FOR BEING SO AWESOME LIZA!!! And I'm glad you love pestering me on Twitter! :)

  7. Buffy is an amazing choice. I'm an huge Buffy fan and I didn't even thought of her. Shame on me :)

    Happy Friday!

  8. Oh I love Jenny!!! I must check out the others!!!

  9. Oh buffy is the best ! I agree !

  10. @Amber I know. It kind of threw me for a loop at first, because when I think superhero I think comics and I never was big on comics. So I decided to just go with good ol Buffy! ;)

    @Tina Whooohoooo! Buffy love! I haven't actually watched Alias. I need to!

    @TG I didn't think of her at first, but then I was like she must totally count because she kicks ass! ;D You too! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

    @BJ Woohoo, you're welcome! ;D WOW! Your first time?! That's awesome! I wish I could go back and watch all the episodes like the first time! What season are you on?

    @Rie I love that you picked Gabrielle! I was totally obsessed with that show when I was growing up and Gabrielle is awesome!

    @Anna YES, SLAY THOSE CULLENS! BWUAHAHAHA! Yeah, she might need a little more age! ;D <3333

    @Nimue :D I didn't think of her at first, so it's okay!

    @Bookish Brunette :D Yes, they're all awesome blogs!

    Thank you all for your comments! Hope you all have an amazing weekend!

  13. Oh my gosh, how could I forget about Buffy??? She's SO awesome! Every girl wishes she could be as kick butt as the most notorious vampire slayer EVER! ;) Have you started watching the new show starting the actress that plays her? It's really intense!
