Book Blogger Hop & Follow Friday!

Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Crazy For Books!

The question this week is:

Who is your all-time favourite book villain?

My answer: I friggin' love Voldemort. What's not to love? Not only is he super-scary when he's actually in a scene, even when he's not physically there you still have this creepy crawling-under-your-skin feeling whenever he's mentioned. He's a villain that brings an atmosphere of doom the second you say his name (or avoid saying his name!). He's also very sympathetic. You feel bad for what he's become. He's also the perfect foil for Harry, since they're so alike. They represent the paths the same person could take. Very psychologically interesting. I love it.

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee's View.

This week's question is:

What embarrassing thing have you done on cold medicine?

My answer: Uh, this is a weird one! I've never been on cold medicine. There's no cure for a cold, so I figure taking medicine for it doesn't really do anything, it'll go away on its own anyway. I don't take medicine for relatively minor illnesses. But, when I have fevers, I wake up at night and stalk my mom. She's woken up many, many times in my life with me standing there by her bed staring at her, in a feverish delusion. It's kind of funny.


  1. Hi! New follower- great choice for villain and I usually just get sleepy when i take cold medicine. Stop by my blog if u get a chance.

  2. Voldemort seems to be winning. But a lot of other Harry Potter villains are in the running. I have yet to read this series--I heard too much about it from my son, spoilers, but I think I need to read it after all.

  3. Very pretty blog!

    I just started following your blog and I hope you'll take the time to stop by mine and do the same!

    Thanks! I look forward to reading your future reviews. (^_^)

  4. Happy Hopping!

  5. Found you through the blog hop, I'm now a follower :)

  6. Hi! New follower here! I also picked Voldemort, he's a classic, and he's pretty awesome of course :)

  7. Haha, mine is Voldemort, too!

    Have a great weekend! :)

  8. I have to find out who Voldemort is...don't throw things at me many folks have been mentioning that character.

    I love this week's question..Stopping by from the Blog Hop.

    Stop by my blog for a book giveaway:


    Chelsey Emmelhainz of HARPER COLLINS is graciously providing FIVE copies for five lucky winners.

  9. Hopping through. I love Voldie too. I also like how he and Harry are so similar.

  10. I don't think I can say that Voldemort was my "favorite" villain, but I did like the scenes we get of Tom Riddle - how he started out, meeting Dumbledore for the first time and so on. What an interesting backstory he has!

    I still like Snape better though! His story is so tragic.

  11. I don't count Snape as a villain ;) He's a good guy in my book. Yeah, his story is tragic. I'm soooo gonna cry in Deathly Hallows Part 2!
