Follow Friday



Welcome to The Happy Booker for another Fun Follow Friday! I haven’t done this in a while but its nice to be back to blogging books again! I took a bit of an extended break, life just gets in the way sometimes… I’m sure you all have been there. Anyway, thanks for stopping by! If you have a minute, say hi either here or on one of my reviews and I’ll be sure to drop by and say hello to you!

Q. If you could write yourself a part in a book, what book would it be and what role would you play in that book?

I’m not a writer, I wish I was that creative. BUT to answer the question, I would absolutely write myself into Hogwarts! I loved the magic of that world and would definitely like to be a character there. I'd hang out with house elves and become BFFs with Luna, I'd have rockcakes with Hagrid over tea, and sneak into the forbidden forest for a chat with Firenze or Bane. It would be wonderful!

“What’s the LONGEST book you’ve ever read?”
(Note: I’m putting one caveat on this question. You aren’t allowed to say the Bible, Torah, Qur’an, or other religious/spiritual text.)



I'm really not sure, possibly HP and The Order of the Phoenix or one of George RR Martin's books, or Hanta Yo which I remember was really long.


My Google Friend Connect is only working intermittently and I have no idea how to fix it so if you would like to follow, I think you can click the blogger "follow" at the very top of the page. Thanks so much!

Couldn't find your GFC so I liked your facebook page. Thanks for stopping by :) Check out The Demon's Lexicon first if you're going to read them as Demon's Surrender is the final book in the series.

I'd love to be in a world with magic too, although I think I'd prefer to be an urban witch in the city.

Hogwarts for the win!
Although i'd prefer to be in it after Harry defeats Voldymort, otherwise i guess it would be a bit less awesome :(
Have an awesome weekend, and do come and say hi, i love meeting new people!

I have subscribed to your blog via e-mail, and would love to follow it too, but having a problem with the latter. I have never used Networked blogs before.

Yea, Hogwarts is such an amazing place. The Potterverse is awesome! If you like crime thriller novels with a side of futuristic elements and a man who will make you swoon...then For sure read the In Death Series. Eve and Roarke are amazing and at 32+ books the series is still strong and interesting. Though winding down now
BTW ~ your vampire ---> CREEPY!! LOL

Book Sake said...

If I had read any of the HP books, I probably would have picked that too!

Well, OotP is 870 pages long, if that helps. I know this because it it my longest (single-story) book read. And now the sagitarrius in me is screaming, " Yes! Let's go hang out with Fienze and Bane! ...wonder if they'd count me as one of their kind...probably not."

Here's PiF's. new follower!

Christy @TheReaderBee said...

Hogworts has been a popular answer today! I'm listening to Order of the Phoenix now, and the audio file is HUGE! :)

Thanks for hopping by!

Jennifer | Book Den said...

I went ahead and used the follow link at the top :)

Hogwarts would be awesome.

Hannah said...

Haha, I think the Great Hall with all of it's amazing foods, loooong tables, and that ceiling would win me over! Not to mention the paintings and moving stairways, and the express! I haven't read these books in years but I still rewmember what amazed me so much about them :)
PS. sorry for any typos, I can't actually see what I'm typing? Dunno if it's me or your comment box but bleh. I was determined to comment though!
Thanks for stopping by my blog! Following back (I think), my GFC has been playing up too.

Cristina said...

New follower. The GFC, I have seen a lot of sites having a problem with it. I have found that if I follow through blogspot then hit refresh, it will come up.
My longest book was The Stand, I believe.
