Friday Hops, 9/7/12

It's my BIRTHDAY!!!! What do I want to do? Sleep in :) But I must go to work and do my job. In the meantime, here are this Friday's hops:

The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee & Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it'll allow us to show off more new blogs!
Q: What book(s) are you reading right now? What do you think of it?

A: I am still reading Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling. I am determined to finish this series, but my hectic schedule is not letting me. I am loving the book so far and I can't help but laugh at all the silly things that happen in the story. So far, I think this is the best Harry Potter book in the series (yes, this is my first read).


Crazy-for-Books is running this Book Blogger Hop to help connect book bloggers with other fellow book bloggers. Here's this week's question:
Q: What book series do you never want to see end?

A: It's funny but it's very rare when I do finish a series. If I do, they are usually trilogies. The one series that I did finish reading and wished that it didn't end was the Hathaway Series by Lisa Kleypas. I loved the Hathaway siblings and I fell in love with their romantic stories. Books 4 and 5 were my absolute favorites and perhaps the funniest in the series. The last book, especially, had me smiling from the beginning to the very end.

Also, Harry Potter is another series I wished it didn't end. As I am reading the fourth book, I am falling in love with the series even more. It saddens me that I'm getting closer to the end.


What about you?

  7. Shame on me, but I only have read the first HP book in the series & still need to get the other ones. I really want to read the other books in the series. I mean, I have promised the readers of my blog and myself that I'll finish the series this year. Need to hurry up!

    Happy Friday! And birthday! Eat lots of cake!

    My FF

    1. Thanks, I'm super full!

      Yes, pick up the Harry Potter series again. They are wonderfully written.

  8. The Harry Potter books do start to get lengthy at book 4, so don't feel bad! It's taking me a long time to read my current book and I started it last Friday! Although the Labor Day holiday did seriously damage my reading schedule. Oh well!

    Happy Reading!

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT weekend!

    Old Follower :)

  9. Harry Potter! :D Nice! :D Happy reading!
    My FF!!

  10. Yay, Harry Potter! Nothing can compare to that series! My favorite is book 3 easy, but I love them all.

    I really liked the Hathaway series by Lisa Kleypas too. I wish she would write another historical romance!!!

    Have you tried the Bridgerton series by Julia Quinn? Eight books in that series! Best is probably Romancing Mr. Bridgerton, but I love the first, The Duke and I, and the second, The Viscount Who Loved Me.

    Happy reading. :)

    1. No, I haven't read any Julia Quinn books. I need to check them out. Thanks for the recommendation!

  11. Hi,

    You have so many exciting things to come in the Harry Potter series! =) I'm sure it'll be worth the wait =D

  12. New follower via RSS :)
    The Harry Potter series is one of my favorites, although I do think it falls apart a bit at the end, I imagine it was pressures on the author from the publishing company, since it was obvious she had a plan.
