Social Blog Hop and Follow Friday

Hey, everyone! Hope you had a great week! I have been busy between a mix of wedding plans, school, and work--I hope all of you have been significantly less stressed. Today we have our regular Friday blog/social media hop! Courtesy of Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. But before you start hopping, don't forget to check out my blog post over at Kiss and Tell YA, where I write as Kaiti Ballenger. I'm talking about wishes and how sometimes they can go ssoooo bad ;-)

But onto the hop!

QUESTION: What's the craziest thing you've ever done to get your hands on a particular book?

MY ANSWER: Other than staying up late and waiting outside the bookstore until the stroke of midnight, nothing too crazy. I will admit though that I dressed up for many Harry Potter releases. Despite that I am a Gryfinndor through and through, I always dressed as Bellatrix Lestrange. I even got my picture in the local paper once lol!

So how about you? What crazy thing have you done to get your hands on a book?

Don't forget to check out the KT blog post and check back in on Monday for our new posted blog schedule. Til then! ;-)

  2. I've made my Mom drive for three hours to get to the midnight release of a Harry Potter book once! That's about as crazy as I am, when it comes to getting the books I want.

    Majanka--Wow! Three hours is a long ride, but I would've asked for the same thing if I were you. I am HP crazy lol. Thanks for following! Have a great weekend!

    Jennifer--Yeah, it was a pretty fun night. There was one of me dressed at Bellatrix with my little sister as Tonks and my friend as Professor Trelawny. The second photo in the paper was me pretend battling a guy who came dressed as a dementor lol. Thanks for following! Have a great weekend!
