Friday Memes

Book Blogger Hop

First up, the Book Blogger Hop hosted by  Click on the icon above to be taken to a list of book's enjoyable to peruse and you may just find a couple of fun blogs to follow!

“Share your favorite post from the last month and tell us why it’s close to your heart!”

 I think my favorite post from the last month is actually my only non-bookish post.  It's my post concerning strange road trip destinations - I love to travel and I love the quirky things in life!  Sometimes it's nice to inject a bit of yourself into the blog (beyond your tastes in books).  That way you can connect with your readers a bit more.  As long as don't stray from your main content too often - I think it's nice to share little glimpses of your personality.  Do you folks feel the same?

Also, Happy Follow Friday!  Again click on the pic to be taken to a whole slew of new book blogs.  The question of the day:

Q. What are you doing to prepare for an upcoming zombie apocalypse and/or the return of Mel Gibson to the silver screen? (Both of which could be terrifying.)

 Haha...interesting question.  Welp, I must say that I am woefully under-prepared for a zombie apocalypse.  I've seen a few movies...which help a bit:

I've also gleaned tips from the film Zombieland such as: keep up with your cardio, be sure to double-tap when killing zombies, and wear your seatbelt.  On the book front, I actually just checked out World War Z by Max Brooks from the that should be helpful.  Otherwise I'm hopelessly lost I may need to go out and get The Zombie Survival Guide to put my mind at ease :)

As far as Mel Gibson's return to, I plan on pretty much ignoring it.  I'm not down with bigotry and that beaver film that he's using as a comeback...well, it's shudder-inducing.

Enjoy your weekend folks!  Also, don't forget to enter my beach reads giveaway!


  1. I still hope the zombie's come before Mel's return.

    Love the blog!

  2. Hi there, new follower here! Love your blog! :)

  3. Hopping by to say hello -- nice blog you have here! I liked your post about road trip destinations -- the circus museum in Baraboo is on my list of places to check out. :)

  4. I'm all for seeing things on off the beaten path when I travel. Life is just more interesting that way :)

  5. Great answer! I'm a new follower. If you have time, stop by my blog and check out my answer! The Crazy Bookworm

  6. New follower from Follow Friday. I'm a zombieland girl myself!

  7. When the zombies rise, I would recommend splitting up as much as possible. Or no wait, that's what you do when searching for clues to solve the mystery of the Fun Park Phantom. I always get those two mixed up. My bad.

  8. I loved the movie Zombieland. I thought of Cardio and the double tap too when I saw this weeks question.

  9. Hey Kat! I definitely agree- I try to infuse my personality into my blog and give readers a glimpse of my life. I would much rather know more vs. less about a blogger who I follow!

    Sometimes it's hard for me to decide how much is too much, but I think it's a learning process. Plus analytics can tell you how much people liked a certain topic, too!

    I'm a new follower! Can't wait to read more of your posts! :)

  10. Thanks for the follow & the comment :)

    I loved Zombieland--try not to kill Bill Murray :)

    Have a great weekend!

  11. I've been trying to get a hold of Max Brooks' books from my library for ages and they are ALWAYS checked out! Everyone around here is reading his stuff! I hope you are planning a post on your thoughts?!?!?!

  12. As the saying goes – the best defense is a good offense. I’ve got that covered! My preparations for the zombie apocalypse are not just intricate, they’re stylish. I’m not talking “last stand” stuff here. I mean to lure in the zombies and slaughter them wholesale while we sip champagne and watch.

    How am I going to do that? Follow me back to my blog at and read all about it.

    Thank G-d it’s Follow Friday!

  13. I love Shaun of the Dead and that is also about my extent of knowing how to survive zombies.

  14. Please, please: Zombies, stay away from me. I am scared of you.

    I'm stopping by via the Hop. I hope you will visit my blog, Readerbuzz. I always follow back.
    And I am doing a monthly giveaway. This month: Anna and the French Kiss!

  15. Hi Kat! New follower from FF. Sounds like you aren't giving yourself enough credit on the zombie preparedness front... One or two good zombie flicks and you should be good to go!

  16. Hopping by, new follower! I don't think I could ever be truly prepared for a zombie apocalypse. It's so scary! Happy hopping :)

  17. World War Z was recommended to me by my awesome military friend. He was reading it while stationed in Afghanistan. LOL I keep seeing it pop up, so I think I'll go check it out too!
