Friday Memes

Question of the week:

Q. Have you ever wanted a villain to win at the end of a story? If so, which one??

At least I won't be the only one saying this... I can't think of a villian who I really wanted to win at the end of a story, probably because the author has done a swell job at making them evil.

But seriously, sometimes I hate the main character and wouldn't mind if they got slapped.

Question of the week:

“Many of us primarily read one genre of books, with others sprinkled in. If authors stopped writing that genre, what genre would you start reading? Or would you give up reading completely if you couldn’t read that genre anymore?”

I went through a period of time where I only read chick-lit and then got over it. And then I only read YA Paranormal and kind of miss it, now I only seem to read picture books. I think that I follow my own interests rather than the popular genre of the time. BUT at the same time I think I would be heart broken if Adriana Trigiani's (family/love/drama books) next book was a paranormal thriller. I would stop reading her then!

Question of the week:

Books to Television: Which books would you love
to see made in to a TV series? or movie?

I would love to see the Rachel Hawkins series Hex Hall, 39 Clues and Wither by Laruen Destefano.


  1. Hi there, new follower here from the hop - great answer! :)

    Have a great weekend and I love your blog!

    Here's mine:

  2. I have always read tonnes of Chick lit :D

  3. Haha, your answer to the FF question made me laugh. There are plenty of main characters who I would love to have brought down a peg or two. Or just thrown out of the story all together. That said, I don't think I've ever wanted a villain to win!

  7. Please don’t be shocked but this week I’ve got a straightforward, cut and dried answer to this week’s question... for a change!

  9. Hopping by . . . You are right if Adriana Trigiani changed it would be strange! Oh and 39 Clues would make a great TV series. I'm new to your blog and look forward to reading more of it.

    Oh, there are many main characters that I would just love to see get slapped *coughBellaSwancough* ;)

    Here‘s my TGIF

  11. I don't think anything would stop me from reading. Not lack of books (I have those aplenty here at my house!) or lack of time or even blindness or death (I have high hopes for a heavenly library).
