It's Friday linkup time! I'm linking up with the Book Blogger Hop hosted by Coffee Addicted Writer, Book Beginnings of Fridays hosted by Rose City Reader, and the Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice.
This Week's Book Blogger Hop Question:
Do you think you will ever get tired of blogging?
At this point I don't think so. After a few rough patches I've gotten better about just blogging the way I want too and not worrying as much about stats or getting books from publishers and I'm pretty happy. Plus I would miss the book blogger community too much! But things may change and I may decide to move on to something else but I don't see that happening anytime soon.
This week's book is a little unusual for me since I'm not much of a YA reader.My oldest was a big fan of this series and I did enjoy the movie but The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot was never high up on books I wanted to read. However, I've been listening to this podcast called Super Serials which is a weekly book club where they talk about MG/YA books. Most of them are books that I loved as a kid like The Babysitter's Club and Nancy Drew but they've done a few more recent books and this is one of them. I thought I'd read it before listening to the discussion.
Sometimes I feel like all I ever do is lie.
I like this opening. It's intriguing yet since it's the diary of a basically regular 14 year old I don't take it to mean she's telling lies about crime or espionage. It definitely makes me want to learn more about her.
My mom's face totally lit up as she started listing the lovely things I could have if I went to live in Genovia, but her voice sounded strange, as if she were playing a mom on TV or something.
Teenagers always know when you're lying - or at least 90% of the time! I am excited to see how the book version differs from the movie.
So what do you think? Keep reading? What genre is out of your comfort zone?
