Book Blogger Hop, Follow Friday and a Giveaway


This week's question for the Hop:
"What is the one bookish thing you would love to have, no matter the cost?"
A reading room that's all tricked out! 
I want it to have a full coffee bar, and the comfiest chairs ever and bookshelves everywhere and a big screen tv (sometimes I need background noise), and giant beautiful windows and comfy blankets and pillows and ... and... and.... XD There's so much!


 This week's question for Follow Friday:

If you have, or would have a daughter, what book
would you want your daughter to read?

 Well... let's consider this? What age are we talking about here?

Young: Stephen Kellogg, David Weisner, Magic Treehouse,  to name a few
Mid-Grade:  I would like to encourage books like Cornelia Funke's stuff for slightly younger kids
YA: I can tell you what I will try to keep my daughter from reading... and that is anything Twilight-esque... anything where the girl thinks life isn't worth living unless she's in a relationship, anything where the relationship is unhealthy and abusive and yet still touted as an amazing love story.
As for what I would hope she would read? Things like Harry Potter, Narnia, Lord of the Rings, The Hounds of the Morrigan, Percy Jackson... 


ALSO! GIVEAWAY!!!

  1. Following my mechanized bunny... He seemed to be wound up at full blast. Old follower, just stopping by to support.

    I do not have a post set up this week for hopping but I did just finish a new review :)

    I would love to have a library at my finger tips at all times... Oh, I do, my Nook. Now for a million books to land on it!

    A book for my figurative girl... Twenty Boy Summer & Speak.

  2. Well, my wonderful baby girl just turned 25 - which is great because we can share books adult-to-adult.
    And she's already read (and enjoyed) my very favorite book which is The Egg and I by Betty McDonald! :D

    Per the other Q - I'd love to have a fully tricked out *gentleman's* club Victorian styled library. Like the kind you read about in Sherlock Holmes!

  3. I like your reading room idea. i would like one of those divan chairs / fainting couches that you lounge on. Do not have space for one however.

    Your reading room sounds like it would be amazing! I wouldn't mind my own personal super sweet library myself.

  15. If I had a daughter and she was in her tweens/teens, I would want her to read "The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks"! I agree that Twilight is problematic in a lot of ways. Also, a tricked-out bookroom sounds great!

  19. I would want a library, like they have in some of the great manor houses in England. Complete with media center and comfy chairs. The one book, that I would want my daughter to read is Pride and Prejudice.
