Fragment Friday & Other Such +

I decided to buck up and join in on Fragment Friday today. It’s hosted by James at Book Chic and gives bloggers a chance to post a vlog and read a snippet from a book they’ve read or are reading. Well, I was looooovin’ Not That Kind of Girl by Siobhan Vivian this week, so here we go.

I am super nervous about this. And about the fact that I am talking very quickly in this video and make some weird looks with my eyes. Ahhhhhh:

Book Blogger Hop

And, because I love making new blogging friends, I’m joining in on Follow Friday and Book Blogger Hop this week. Hi to everyone who is swinging by!

This week’s Follow Friday question is: “What is your reading suggestion this week?” See my video about Not That Kind of Girl, which I loved. And, the Hop is asking: “When you read a book that you just can’t get into, do you stick it out and keep reading or move to your next title?” Oh yeah, I move on! I did a post about book breakups earlier. My time is too valuable to me to waste it on something I get zero enjoyment from. If I am just a LITTLE bothered by a book though, I usually read on and give it the benefit of the doubt.

    You are totally cute! I don't know that I'll EVER do a vlog. The idea scares the crap out of me.
    At any rate, I've had my eye on this book for a awhile and the fragment you read has me intrigued. I just wish this little tiny book wasn't like, $18. I'm so glad you enjoyed it!

    Hopping by to visit and follow! I feel the same way. There's no reason to spend 5+ hours of misery on a book you're not digging.

    Hahahaha, oh, this vlog was so cute. πŸ™‚ I don't think you talked too fast, and your facial expressions were priceless. In a good way! It shows character. <3 I've heard of this title before but didn't really give it a second glance. Your vlog changed my mind. It wasn't even the fragment that you read – it was the way you read it. xP

    Anyway, I suppose we're opposites! I haven't read the Morganville Vamps, but I want to. And you need (emphasis on need!) to read the Vamp Academy series. πŸ™‚

    <3, Kristina

    Happy Follow Friday!!! Hope you will stop by my blog too! My publisher and I are looking for a group of bloggers for a huge blog tour next year before the release of book two in my 'A Sense of Truth' series! We will be giving out a few more copies of The Thirteenth Chime (we can only give out so many, being open to e-books gives an upper hand) and are still open to all interviews and guest posts. We want to fill up the Amazon page with reviews and try to reach as many people as we can!!! Hope you might consider being a part of the team! Thank you either way!

    Sincerely,

    Agreed, if a book seems just awful, I put it down. Admittedly though, I always give them the "One more try" pick up. I feel bad abandoning them.

    Another hopper here, another new follower. I shot some footage of an echidna in my garden yesterday and I'm going to do a voice over using the little ant eater as an anology for writers. Cute huh?

    Hope you can hop over to my blog and read ch 1 of my YA novel Lethal Inheritance
