Friend Makin’ Mondays: Are You A Bookworm?

Weekends fly by, don’t they?  If you read my blog, you know what that means.  It’s time for Friend Makin’ Mondays!  If you’ve taken part in FMM then you know the rules. If you’re new, please take a moment to answer this week’s question on your own blog then add your link in the comments section of this post so we can all see your FMM questions and answers. Please invite your blog readers to add their links here too so everyone has to opportunity to be seen.  The idea is to connect with other awesome bloggers so take a moment to post your own FMM post and comment on a couple of other posts. Now it’s time for this week’s topic!

Friend Makin’ Mondays: Are You A Bookworm?
1) How often do you read?  I’m almost always reading something these days…
2) What’s the last book you read and loved? I love the book I’m currently reading, but the last book I loved prior to this one was ‘Safe Haven’ by Nicholas Sparks.
3) What book(s) are you currently reading?  I started reading ‘Something Borrowed’ by Emily Giffin yesterday so I could see the movie this week, and so far, I’m in love though I wonder what that says about me.  Sigh…



I’m also reading ‘Water for Elephants’ and ‘The Help’ though I’ll finish reading ‘Something Borrowed tonight.  Has anyone else read it?  Does anyone plan on seeing the movie?

4) Share a few of your favorite authors.  This list could get long, but my absolute favorites are Nicholas Sparks, John Grisham, Jennifer Weiner, Jen Lancaster, etc.

5) What’s next on your list of must-reads?  I plan to finish the two I just mentioned, but I might read ‘Something Blue’ first which is a sequel to the book I’m reading now. 



 Now it’s your turn to share your answers!  Don’t forget to link back here so we can all see your answers too!  Happy Monday!

    here's my blog post…
    http://lettucemakesmefat.com/2011/05/02/friend-makin-mondays-are-you-a-bookworm/

    I have read all of Emily Giffen's books. I really enjoyed "Something Borrowed". I'm probably not going to see the movie though…well…I'm not sure. I usually have a strict "don't-see-the-movie-of-a-book-you-enjoyed-because-it-won't-be-the-same-and-it-will-disappoint-and-upset-you" policy. I'll have to wait for reviews from people who have read the book. If they say its nothing like the book then I'll pass on it. If it close, I'll watch it.

    Thanks for great questions this week!

    All of Emily Giffin's books are great! Can't wait to see this movie!!!

    I follow her on FB/Twitter…and love it because SHE actually posts…not her "media assistant" or whatever you'd call it!

    Kenz,
    I've read all the books you've listed…loved them. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to read!

    You *must* read Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers…you won't be able to put it down! 🙂

    I also love the O'Malley series books by Dee Henderson.

    Oh, and I read all of the Hunger Games books in 2 days. Pretty good. I read them b/c my students were reading them! They were quick reads.

    Happy Reading,
    J

    Read "Something Blue" too! It's equally as good as "Something Borrowed."

    Oh my goodness – I hope you LOVE Something Borrowed & Something Blue. I loved them both. And the next one…Baby Proof and her newest one Heart of the Matter. I LOVE Emily Giffin.

    I read The Help on vacation this winter and couldn't put it down. I am so excited for the movie.

    Do you read any Jodi Picoult? She is one of my favorite authors. Also, Jennifer Weiner is really good.
