ThankFUL Friday/ Blog Hop

Happy Friday everyone! Hope you all found the last post on e-readers to be interesting or informational, or hopefully both lol.

To be honest, the beginning of my week started out like complete crap. But so far (*knocks on wood*) it's ending quite well. As a result of my uplifted mood, I thought a ThankFUL Friday was in store. I'm thankful for:

--All my family members and pets, Sookie and Kiki, and all of our health
--My good friends: Laura, Britt, and Lisa
--The partial request I received yesterday morning! Yay!
--My dance classes start up again this Sunday. I can't wait to unwind.
--The premiere of Boardwalk Empire, because it was good and I'm looking forward to it again.
--The Supernatural season premiere comes back on tonight! Woo hoo! Heeelllloooo Dean Winchester--one of my top five fictional hotties, aka Jensen Ackles. *starts panting like a dog in heat* lmao
--The play my sister and I saw tonight; it was good.
--That I got to sleep in this morning!

So what are you thankFUL for? I'd like to hear the good stuff that's going on in your life.

Also we have two wonderful blog hops to participate in today, courtesy of Crazy-for-Books and Parajunkee's View. Here they are:

Book Blogger Hop

The question for the Crazy-for-Books blog hop is: "when you write reviews, do you write them as you are reading or wait until you have read the entire book?"

I always wait until I've read the entire book to write a review. The ending is crucial, and it can make or break a novel. I think about what I would say in a review as I read though. I'm constantly noting my initial impressions and seeing how they change.

The question for Parajunkee's Follow Friday is: "What is your high fashion book--translation: best book cover ever?"

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, because it symbolizes the beginning of some of the greatest literature written within my lifetime. Seriously. Do you think I'm kidding? Because I'm really not lol. But to be fair, I only adore the cover because of what it means to me. A particularly beautiful book cover that I admire is Laurel K Hamilton's Obsidian Butterfly. Her books usually have very good covers, and I love their titles too.


  1. Hey! I found your blog through a fellow blogger and thought it was cool to see another SCHULZ.. And not a Shults or Schultz or some crap, ya know? ;-)

    Maybe you'll be able to get back to follow mine as well?

  2. Hi, thanks for stopping by my blog. I am now following you and will be back to visit as much as I can :)


  3. I'm leaning toward the Harry Potter covers for my fav too. The American covers. I prefer the British edition of the books, but love the American covers.
    My Hop

  4. Happy Hop!! I've always waited until I've finished the book before moving forward and writing the review. I do take notes and use those to add my insights. Enjoy!

    HOP by and visit

  5. Love your cover choice!!!

  7. Thanks for following everyone! I will definitely return the favor. =D

    Allison--I like the American covers of the books too. I've never read the British version though, but I've seen them.

    Heather--That is pretty cool. Everyone I know who has that last name usually spells it Schultz. No one can seem to figure out that in the actual German spelling the 't' is implied lol. I will definitely stop by your blog. Thanks for following!
