This week's Follow Friday question:
It's that pesky magic book fairy again! She has another wish: What imaginary book world would you like to make a reality?


My Answer:Obviously the world of Harry Potter, but since everyone is going to say that, I did just finish reading The Iron King by Julie Kagawa and it was freaking fantastic-- the world-building in this book was absolutely mind-blowing. It was one of those books that you read and can then picture and play in your head long after you've finished it. The faery world of The Iron King was both dark, magical, eerie and intoxicating-- I loved it!

~THIS WEEK'S QUESTION~

As a blogger, how do you introduce yourself in your profile?

I have a separate "About Me" page on my blog because I think it's important for my readers to know who it is they are reading posts from... In it, I talk a little bit about my career as a librarian and then I talk about what else I love to do in my spare time when I'm not reading or blogging. There are also a few pics of myself and family, which I think gives my blog a personal touch :)

Thanks for stopping by everyone, and have a great weekend!!

  1. You're definitely right! I've been to 3 blogs already and ALL of them said Harry Potter. Who can blame them though?! haha

    I've been really loving The Iron King series though, so I'm loving your answer!

  2. Hopping through. Hard not to pick Harry Potter. I did. Iron Fey series is a great choice. I agree.

  4. I feel like I'm one of the few that wasn't so thrilled with the Iron Fey series. I do like Ash though. I'll continue for more of him!

  5. I was thinking about the Iron Fey series too, but then I remembered that there's a lot of nasties in that world too. I'd hate to run in to some redcaps or something :/ Unless I had Ash to defend me! Then it could work out :)

  6. I've heard a lot of people say Harry Potter, too. The Iron King, though? That looks interesting. I wonder how I managed to miss reading it? I might have to correct that. :) New follower.

  7. I love Harry Potter and that was one of my answers too! So was Iron Fey though! :] Both of them are amazing and I like that you can switch between the human side and the magic side! Happy Friday!
