Follow Friday and Book Blogger Hop 7.1.2011
Thursday June 30, 2011 at 11:04 pm |

Feature & Follow Friday is a blog hop hosted by Parajunkee  that expands your blog following by a joint effort between bloggers. First you leave your name here and then you visit as many blogs as you can and tell them hi in their comments. You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win.

This week’s feature is Erika @ Let’s Talk ABout Books.  So be sure to visit her and follow!

Q. ACK! Your favorite book/movie character (example Hermione Granger played by the Emma chick) just walked into the room! Who is it and what would be your first reaction? You get extra points if you include visual stimulation.


I have two famous folks I’m absolutely NUTS about and could really wax poetic all day about the both of them.  One of them I love more for who they are as a person, and the other I’m absolutely in love with the character they play.  So without further ado…my picks!

Character I Adore: Jacob Black played by Taylor Lautner.  Jacob Jacob Jacob…how do I love thee, let me count the ways.  Seriously, if I was like 16 again, I would totally be trying to make Jacob Black my boyfriend cause he would so be the perfect guy for me.  I love everything about him, and one of these day I’ll write up a character profile and detail why I love me some Jacob Black.  I’ve actually been wanting to do that for a while so I’ll save all my gushing for that.  But in the mean time, check the pics below and be sure to join me here every other Thursday for Black Thursday, where I post a fan vid dedicated to my favorite shape shifter.  Now as far as meeting him live and in living color… I’d like to think I wouldn’t be a total fan girl, and that I would act my age.  But urrrmmmm….I can make no promises. 

And I also love me some Marlon Wayans!  My favorite character he has played was Kenny Tyler from my favorite movie, The 6th Man.   I used to dream of moving to Cali, meeting Marlon on the Sunset Strip and marrying him and living HEA (<—-Just figured out what that means!).  HA…dreams of an adolescent.  Marlon was my first major celebrity crush…and I still love him to pieces.  He’s so cute, and can always make me laugh.  I love men who can make me laugh.  And Marlon is not just a clown.  He can REALLY act and I think he is VERY underrated.  I think he’s the most talented (at least acting wise) of all the Wayans.  Have you seen him in Requiem Fo A DreamAMAZING I tell ya!  Not to mention you never hear anything bad about him or his family in the tabloids.  I like that about him.  I think I would hyperventilate if I met him.  But I hope I’d be able to get it together enough to tell him what a fan I am.



The Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love of the written word!  Hosted by Crazy-For-Books,  this weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books! It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs to read! So, grab the logo, post about the Hop on your blog, and start HOPPING through the list of blogs that are posted in the Linky list!!

“What keeps you reading beyond the first few pages of a book, and what makes you want to stop reading a book and put it back on the shelf?“

Hmmm…well if it’s an author I’m familiar with I’ll usually keep reading without having to have anything majorly special happen in the first few chapters. But new authors I look for some humor, quirky characters, or a plot or secret that is too interesting to not find out more about. I’ll stop reading if I’m bored, confused, or just really hate the story and characters.

    I have the feeling I’m going to be seeing a lot of Taylor Lautner/Jacob Black this weekend. LOL. Have a good one!

  4. Ha!! I could have guessed you would have chosen Jacob. Now I wish I would have been thinking because I would have chosen him for sure.

    I like the pictures you used for Jacob. Have a great weekend!!!

  11. I love Jacob Black! I think I’d seriously freak out if I met him! Nice choice :)Here’s my FF!

    -Jessica (Peace Love Books)

  12. Interesting choice with Marlon Wayons, but I think it’s a great one. I have to admit, one of my favorite movies that he did was White Chicks…that movie cracks me up like no other! I like the fact that he’s not all over the tabloids doing stupid stuff; that’s part of the reason I love Hugh Jackman so much is because he seems like a genuinely nice guy and you never see him getting into trouble. I totally agree with you on your Hop answer too! Thanks for stopping by my blog, following you now too!

  13. Charmaine says:

  16. I don’t know why I keep reading a book. It’s not the story. It’s not the characters. I really don’t know!

    I’m hopping by to tell you that I’ve got a wonderful giveaway going on at my blog, Readerbuzz. It’s international! During the Readerbuzz July Giveaway I’ll be giving away a $25 Amazon gift card! I’d love to have you stop in and throw your name in the hat to win!

  17. Brie says:

    Marlon is hot! But the best part about him is that you know there won’t be a dull moment in your life, and he has all those sexy brothers as well…
    See you around,

  18. Hey!

    Jacob nom, i feel too old to like him sometimes but he’s still a cutie.

  22. These book blogger hop questions just get better and better. This one looks easy but I think it’s a trick question. We all know it’s the same answer – the writing – but we all have different perspectives of what good writing is.

    Hop on over to my blog at http://www.howardsherman.net and read my three-prong answer as I explain why I’ll decide to pick up a book or put it down in under sixty seconds.

    Happy July 4th Weekend!

  23. lena says:

    I knew you would choos JB and Marlon Wayans. So I wasn’t surprised at all. 🙂 Matter of fact you should’ve posted the old Marlon site you had again. I would’ve pick Neo from the Matrix or Blade. 🙂

  24. Rebecca says:

    Oh, Jacob Black is a great choice! I love him and Jasper in the movies as well. But I just had to go with Snape as a favourite this time. Alan Rickman playing him is just wonderful! Lol. Love it!

    Have a great weekend! My FF can be found here!

    Hopping through. I don’t give up books that often, but they’re easier to read if they have good humor and quirky characters.
