Follow Friday [#42]

Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. Its a way to get out there and meet new bloggers and discover new blogs. :)

*Just a note, if you choose to follow me I'd prefer you follow through GFC and/or Email. Thanks!*

Q. What drove you to start book blogging in the first place?
 
I had just went through a break up. I was really sad and I was just reading a ton. Then I started thinking about making a blog to talk about my books to keep my mind off of things and in the end not only did it cheer me up but I have made awesome friends who have been there for me through more recent struggles. :)
TGIF is hosted by Ginger at GReads. There's a weekly question and then we do a re-cap of the weeks posts.

Q. Quotes That Make You Swoon: What are some of the most swoon-worthy quotes you've experienced in a book?

 “You know what?” His breath was warm against my cheek. “There are a lot of stupid things to do, but I really want to do the stupidest thing possible.”

“What’s that?”

“I want to kiss you.”
- "Pure (Covenant #2) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

“For the two of us, home isn't a place. It is a person. And we are finally home.” - "Anna and the French Kiss" by Stephanie Perkins

 "I know you aren't perfect. But it's a person's imperfections that make them perfect for someone else." - From "Lola and the Boy Next Door" by Stephanie Perkins

"There are some people in life that you can't get over." - Also from "Lola and the Boy Next Door" by Stephanie Perkins

I love those quotes! Because that entire scene where the quote from Pure comes from.. Just OMG! And just that one quote from Anna! It's one of my fave of all time! 
Just so you guys know I have 3 giveaways going on right now! And the Shine & Before I Wake ones are International!
