Follow Friday (#8)

Thanks to Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read for hosting this fun blogger hop. If you want to get in on the follow fun, check out their blogs.

Q: Today’s question is something new, an activity. We want to see what you look like! Take a pic with you and your current read! Too shy? Boo! Just post a fun pic you want to share.

In my car after a massage and errands. Do not be alarmed: this is not some sort of PSA to say it's okay to read and drive:) I'm parked in the parking lot.
I'm holding an ARC of Far From the War. The concept is insteresting: a 2nd US Civil War that takes place in present day. I'll post the review soon. Almost...finished...

I can't wait to see everyone's friendly face in this blogger hop. It will be great to put faces and names together!

Now I'm off to watch Water for Elephants because we have no school today (parent-teacher conferences are to thank for this well-deserved break). I hope the movie's good and I'm not too grossed out by the romance between Rob Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon because of the age difference. I didn't get a chance to read the book yet. (UPDATE: LOVED the movie. Hardly noticed their age difference--Rob acted older, Reese looks young, so bam, chemistry).
Tonight, I think the hubby and I are going to see Puss and phone's text predictor sucks majorly-- I accidentally texted him, "Let's go see Piss n Boots." I hope it brightened his workday at least!

Jenna! Gorgeous pic! I'm a huge fan of scarves =) You're right, it is awesome to put a face to the name.

And I get that comment all the time. Between my baby face and voice people never believe me when I say I'm 22 about to be 23 at the end of the month! hahaha I'm just banking that when I'm 40 I'll look 30 =)

Here's how you embed your link:

Let me know if you got it!

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm returning the favour.

Daughters of Rome is historical fiction aimed at women. Your should definitely try it if you enjoy a spot of historical! :)

Great pic! You certainly look nice and relaxed after your massage! Can't wait to see your review of that book, it sounds very interesting.

Unknown said...

I haven't read the book yet--I keep meaning to! My TBR pile is insane. Well, it's a bookcase, not a pile. There's a big age difference? I had no idea!
BTW, I checked out your NaNo profile and added you as a buddy. I LOVE your story idea! Very original!
Thanks for visiting! :)

Unknown said...

Love the picture! I have this book as well, but haven't started it yet!

Old follower here for the hop.

Such a cute picture! I'll be looking forward to your review on the book you are reading. It sounds good. Thank for dropping by by blog. Hopefully I'm going to make it to the Monday meme. I missed it this week! :)

Unknown said...

Returning the follow. Thanks for stopping by!

Braiden said...

I think I saw that book your reading on NetGalley. Hope you’re enjoying it!

Thanks for dropping by my FF :D Appreciate it!

Hannah @ Dragons and Whimsy said...

You photograph much better than I do! Haha.
I don't think the age difference bothers me.. just who they are! Haven't seen it for that reason. Would still love to read the book though.
Thanks for stopping by! Following you now. :)

Laura BurgandyIce said...

Just to be different, I'm "Burgandy Ice" on NaNoWriMo, too. jajajaja (that's laughing in Spanish) ('cause I'm being sarcastic.)

Thx for hopping by and I hope you figure out how to Buddy-me on Nano 'cause I could totally use it, too. I'm up to 3184 words today, but it looks sad on the scale.

Love your picture. You have an ARC!! Woohoo!!

Unknown said...

Great picture, I hope you enjoyed Water for Elephants! I havent seen it but I think the romance might freak me out a bit with the age difference as well! Thanks for stopping by :) I'm an old follower

Amazingly cute photo...Love the sunglasses!!!!

New Follower!

Alison Can Read said...

Hopping through. I was kind of grossed out by their age difference. But I think that's only because I knew about it. I wouldn't have been able to tell if I wasn't familiar with the actors. They each did a great job.

And I read while driving - but at stoplights only. Not totally stupid. :-)
