It's Friday: Weekly Recap, Follow Me Friday {#12} and TGIF

TGIF at GReads! 
This Friday's Question:

Spooktacular Reads: Which books do you consider festive Halloween reads? Which stories have chilled you to the bone?

I don't read a lot of "scary" stories honestly. I guess I read a lot of paranormal books that could be considered scary, but I don't really feel frightened by the majority of them. I guess I'll go with my classic choice, which is actually the first book I ever checked out at a library! It actually caught my interest and I begged them to let me borrow it from the school library which didn't actually let kindergartners take books home... they finally let me though and I took it home and was totally freaked out after reading it. My favourite story inside was about the girl who wore the green ribbon are her neck....

It's Follow Me Friday over at Parajunkee and Alison Can Read!The question this week is:

Q: If you could have dinner with your favorite book character, who would eat with and what would you serve?
Oooh, very good question. I guess I would invite Dimitri from Vampire Academy and make him lots of Russian food! And as a fellow Siberian, of course there'd definitely have to be pelmeni! Pictured below is some I made a while back to give you an idea! ;)


  1. When I come visit you can you make me this? kthnx :) I would serve myself to Dimitri though... ;)

  2. @Anna BWUAHAHA! Well, he could have me for dessert!!!! ;D AND YOU COME TO VISIT AND I'LL MAKE IT FOR SURE! ;)

  3. Haha, that's a cute story about In A Dark, Dark Room. I don't read many scary books now, but when I was younger I would TOTALLY check out the creepiest ones I could find. I guess I enjoyed torturing myself. :P

    Have a great weekend!

  4. Hopping through. How do you make Pelmini? It sounds great.

  10. I'm hungry!

    For the food.

    I swear... ;)

  11. Yummy Yummy. Sounds delicious. Good answer. Come visit me over at Livre De Amour-Books of Love.

  12. I'm not big on scary stories, either, but maybe that's just because it takes a lot to really scare me. LOL.

    Dinner with Dimitri! YUM! :D

  13. Im sure Dimitri would love your pelmeni! It looks delicious. Definitely gives you an edge!!

    Thanks for stopping by my FF

  14. Gaah. You're absolutely right; Dimitri would be the perfect dinner partner.
    He wouldn't get any Siberian food from me though, because I'm a seriously bad cook.. We'd probably just end up ordering Chinese.
    So cool you have read the VA-series! I've also read the Succubus-series from Richelle Mead, but not her last one. You wouldn't have happened to have read those, have you? What did you think of them?

  15. @Ida ;D I love Chinese tho! Who doesn't??? Sure he'd be down for that too! I haven't actually! I have the first book on my Kindle, I just haven't gotten around to it. I'M SERIOUSLY SO BEHIND ON READING! Aaaah!

  16. i can't wait to read VA! a lot of people are choosing the characters from that series today!

  17. Great choice for dinner company! Pelmini look good, are they some sort of dumplings? o.O They look interesting to make. Thanks for stopping by!

  18. I love your kindergarten book story, that's hilarious! I wish I could remember the first book I got.
    Mmm, Dimitri, good choice! And dinner sounds (and looks) amazing! :-)

  19. Liza! *laughing her head off* You are a superwoman! I wouldn't be able to make pelmeni even if my life depended on it, even for Dimka! I'm totally cheating, there is a Russian shop 2 mins away from me and I keep buying them almost on a weekly basis :))

  20. I don't read a lot of scary stories either, but I do love my PNRs. Never heard of that book before, but it looks like it would do a good job of scaring me. LOL :)

    Can I go to your Russian dinner party? I haven't ever tried Russian food. Sounds delicious.

    Happy Friday, Liza.

  21. Oh great choice, I would to eat with Dimitri too !

  22. Ahh! I was going to invite Dimitri! You stealer! :P
    Check out my FF

  23. My dad's family is all Polish on his mother's side (one of her parents was 1st generation American and the other was 2nd generation American), and as soon as I saw that photo I thought instantly of pierogi. So of course I Googled pelmeni and found out the two foods are very similar.

    Great choice! :D

  24. Im not big into scary stories anymore and I avoid horror ones...but I do like a good creepy ghost story.

    And PS- I would totally have Hot D over for dinner...mmmmmmm....

  25. **sigh** Dmitri... OK you totally win at the Follow Friday this week lol, that is SUCH a good answer!! :P

    Thanks for stopping by my Follow Friday this week! :)
