TGIF, Blog Hop, FF and weekly round up(all in one post)

Posted 3 June, 2011 by Danny in / 14 Comments

Yay for Fridays!!! The week’s almost over and it’s time for a whole love of Blog Love and Networking!

Let’s start with Jen’s Blog Hop.

Even though she’s in the process of migrating her blog over to WordPress, she still took the time to host the hop. That’s a lot of love right there! This week she asks:

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

Well, my favorite post in May would have to be a toss up between Danny’s squee-tastic post about the new cover reveal for Sleight by Jennifer Sommersby and Cutie’s thoughtful and funny post about being an armchair BEA girl this year. But I love them both for the same reasons. Both Cutie and Danny not only love books but authors and our fellow bloggers and in both posts that love totally shines through.

Parajunkee also runs a Follow Friday meme that we love.

This week’s question is from Amy at Backseat Reader:

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.)

Excellent question, Amy! And, the way things are going, either could happen any day now, right? So, for the zombie apocalypse, my preparation involves reading some seriously awesome zombie dystopian fiction! My current favorites are The Forest of Hands and Teeth trilogy by Carrie Ryan (you know I <3 that girl like WHOA!) and The Fall by Robert J. Duperre (which is frighteningly realistic!).

As for Mel….oh Mel…how I adored you once upon a time. Do you remember when it used to be so easy? You were young… and handsome….

and mostly sober and I had no idea how nutters you were? I long for those halcyon days of yore, Mel, I truly do! But if you get back on the silver screen you know I’m going to secretly stalk you because you’re just a train-wreck wherever you go these days!

Finally, we’d love to take the opportunity to welcome all the new faces and the old ones too! *waves* Glad you are here and we hope you like it here at the Bewitched Bookworms.

  1. Imo

    *Le sigh* about Mel, where did it all go wrong?
    I loved Starcrossed, although my blog is new so haven't got around to reviewing it yet! I also though The Forest of Hands and Teeth was a good read, but definitely an acquired taste for some, the horror genre isn't for everyone!

    Have an awesome day πŸ˜€

    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!

  3. Hi there! New follower here, and I just wanted to say that I love your blog! It's absolutely gorgeous πŸ™‚

    I love Carrie Ryan's books too! Her novels are just so unlike any others that I've read, and since I'm a zombie fan (or an any-supernatural-at-all fan), the premise is really intriguing! Not only that, but her stories are realistic in an unrealistic way. She's not afraid to write an unhappy ending so long as it's true to the world.

    It's really nice to meet you! Hope you're having a great weekend πŸ™‚
