Hops, Follows, and Tag Alongs, Oh My!

The 18 & Over Book Blogger Tag Along is courtesy of Bitten by Paranormal Romance!


"Do you buy or swap books online, if so whats your favorite place?"

I would love to be able to swap books online, but I've yet to find a site that supports Canadian readers . . . which I totally understand, given our ridiculous postage prices. When buying online, I generally go with Amazon and Chapters for new books, and Abebooks or Powells for my used books.

It's time for another Book Blogger Hop, courtesy of Crazy for Books!

"Share your favorite post from the last month and tell us why it’s close to your heart!"

I'd have to go with part 2 of my Alice (Richard) Novic interview. I never, in my wildest dreams, could have hoped to find an author who was so willing to invest some serious time in an interview, and who was so forthcoming about our shared passions.

It's also time for the Friday Follow, courtesy of Parajunkee's View!

"What are you doing to prepare for an upcoming zombie apocalypse and/or the return of Mel Gibson to the silver screen? (Both of which could be terrifying.)"

I'm hoping to woo Mel to my side - after all, who better to have on your side against a horde of zombies that Mad Max himself? Really. Think about it. You know I'm right.

As always, I urge you to hop around to some new blogs, tag along with some new friends, and find some great new reviews to follow. I always find something new to delight me!


  1. Hopping through. I've never seen Mad Max. I should sometime.
    My Anniversary Hop

  8. Just hopping by.

  9. Haha, ok I'll have to give you that one. While I'm not Mel Gibson's biggest fan now-a-days, I loved him as Mad Max. I think that character could probably protect us.

    You can check out my post *HERE*

  10. I think it's wonderful when a author comes by for a Q&A. It can be really hard to get one to participate so I am happy for you!!!

  11. I want to try that ABEBOOKS. Have a good weenked.

  12. howard@malinche.netThe Follow Friday post is (and, as always, please be sure to include the signature below):

    As the saying goes – the best defense is a good offense. I’ve got that covered! My preparations for the zombie apocalypse are not just intricate, they’re stylish. I’m not talking “last stand” stuff here. I mean to lure in the zombies and slaughter them wholesale while we sip champagne and watch.

    How am I going to do that? Follow me back to my blog at and read all about it.

    Thank G-d it’s Follow Friday!

  13. Yes, I like to remember Mel the way he was way back Mad Max or Braveheart.

    Have a great weekend!

  16. Hi!--Love your answer--I totally agree with you about Mel/Mad Max!!!

    And I hope they work out better ways for international readers to get books!--books should be accessible to everyone!!!

    Also, read your interview, which was really touching and insightful!!!--Thanks for sharing!!!

    Hope you have a great weekend!


  17. Oh! I never thought of that. Well if Mel is on your side then surely I have no chance.

  18. Mel could be an ally against zombies. But what about sexy zombies with Russian accents?
