Blog Hop: Keeper Shelf, FF: Birthday Wish & TGIF: Best Read

June 29, 2012 Blog Hop, Feature and Follow, Meme, TGIF 32

Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jen at Crazy-For-Books.

Do you have a keeper shelf for books you loved? What books are on that shelf and why?

I do not have a keeper shelf… at this time.  I will have a keeper shelf in September.  At this point other than my HP books and my signed books I don’t know what else will be on it.  I don’t even know how many books will fit, or how much of the space in the cabinet I will use.  I haven’t thought that far ahead yet.  (Note: I am FULLY COMMITED to doing this, but it may require some follow up in September, as I am very OCD about my books and the fact that they will not all be together will probably bother me. A lot)

Feature & Follow is hosted by Parajunkee’s View and Alison Can Read. Every week they feature a new blogger and ask a question.  Learn more about Feature & Follow. 
Birthday Wishes: Blow out the candles and imagine what character could pop out of your cake, who is it and what book are they from.

I’m going to have to go with Kaleb from Timepiece by Myra McEntire.  I liked him in Hourglass, but I loved him in Timepiece.  I like his bad boy nature, how much he cares, and all the crazy thoughts he has in his head!

TGIFTGIF is a weekly meme to re-cap the week’s posts & to propose a question for our followers. It is run by Ginger at GReads.

Best I’ve Read So Far: We’re half way through the year (crazy how time flies!), which top 3 books are the best you’ve read so far this year?

Only 3?  Seriously?  I can’t just pick 3!!!  I’ve read some really great books this year. 

Here are my favorite three:
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
Divergent by Veronica Roth
Timepiece by Myra McEntire
But I also could have picked:
Ten by Gretchen McNeil
Girl of Nightmares by Kendare Blake
I’ve Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella

    DUDE!!! I made my brother read Anna Dressed In Blood and he LOVED it, so I am absolutely buying Girl of Nightmares. And I loooove badboys. And I couldn’t pick only 3, so I didn’t participate.

    And (since I’m starting all my sentences with this word) I really need to get to Hourglass and Timepiece.

    I love that you picked Divergent! That book, and its sequel Insurgent, are two of my favorite books. I think Veronica Roth has created an amazing world, characters and a matching story to boot :)

    I am very impressed that you answered all the questions! It bothered me at first when my books weren’t all together, but now I love it. I love that when you walk into my apartment every which way you look are more books! And since I have my own personal filing system down, I know where everything is and can find things instantly!
    Also, I have a feeling TFIOS is going to be on a lot of lists today

    I haven’t read Hourglass yet, but it’s on my huge TBR. If you’d like to know my choice, please come over to my FF post.

    I have a kind of keeper shelf, but it’s only the Harry Potter books and the Hunger Games books right now. All my other books are in alphabetical order. I’m like you – I don’t think I could handle them being shelved different ways. I know Bittner has separate shelves for the ones she has read and the ones she hasn’t read, and I’ve thought about trying that out but I’m still not sold. And I can’t imagine sorting them by color like Kate! How would you ever find anything??? I do have physical TBR piles, though – books that I plan on reading soon. And then once I’m done with them they go back in their alphabetical slot. ;)

    My keeper shelf is small. Then I have piles. To read piles. To use for giveaway piles. To swap piles.

    I love the idea of color coding, but my OCD goes into overdrive at the idea of a yellow cookbook next to yellow fiction.

    I haven’t read the Timepiece books, but Kaleb sounds great. I have a soft spot for bad guys :)
    Oh, I loved Divergent too. And I’ve Got Your Number was so funny :D Great list!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! Have a great weekend!
