This week's question is: When you’ve read a book, what do you do with it? (Keep it, give it away, donate it, sell it, swap it..?)

MY ANSWER: For the most part I keep my books! I might go back and re-read them someday if I have the time. But I love my books! Always have. Plus I like to stalk visit my fave authors and have them sign em.

Now when I've read a book that I didn't totally love, I will usually give it away in a contest and I have donated books to the library, some of my older contemporary type reads.

TGIF is a weekly feature created and hosted by GReads! that re-caps the week’s posts and has different question each week.  

This week's question is: Most Popular: What blog post has gotten the most comments/activity on your blog this year?

MY ANSWER: Ooh that's a tough one! I say that because I feel like the weekly memes, such as this and other popular ones, Teaser Tuesday, Waiting on Wednesday, In My Mailbox, etc are "cheating" since a lot of those have a lot of comments. Same goes for anything that relates to a contest. Those always get more comments for obvious reasons.

So basically I was just looking at my reviews and seeing which one had the most comments and that was Blood Magic by Tessa Gratton! A really interesting and intense kind of read! Way different from what I was expecting, yet still amazing! 

It's also my birthday today, so if I'm not totally active today in the blogosphere, which I should have a decent chunk of time after I get off work to check on things! But yay! It's also my niece's birthday too! She's very excited for hers! Me, kind of ehh...just want my cookie cake!!


  1. I usually keep the book I love too - just so I can admire them, ahah! =) I give away/swap the ones I didn't enjoy.

    - Happy FF!

  2. Happy Birthday!!!! I had a similar answer to you about blog comments - a lot of them have come from memes, so I didn't want to include them.

  3. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! I love that you um...visit authors to have your books signed. LOL I love signed books. They make me smile:)

  4. We're totally on the same page with the books! xDDD
