Friday Following Fun - #3

I'm totally loving this Friday Follow/Blog Hop! It's a great way to meet new people who are insanely interested in books - like me! So thanks in advance for stopping by my blog this week for more Follow Friday Fun!


 
Every week, parajunkee features a book blog, with some information about the blogger and why they started the blog. Then, everyone who's part of the FF system follows that person. There's also a beautiful linky list below that with links to hundrends (literally) of other book blogs. What a wonderful way to get connected to others who share a passion for books and for blogging!
 

Our Feature - Erika @ Let's talk about books

Photobucket
Hello wonderful PJV readers,
My name is Erika and I have an addiction to books. Oh sorry, wrong place…

I am addicted to reading and just like any person with a passion for something, I love telling people about the books I read. Unfortunately, I don't know anyone that loves reading as much as I do. My lack of reading buddies forces me to talk my fiancée's ear off with all of my book talk. I am not sure if he processes what I say but at least he nods and smiles in the right parts. Realizing that my fiancée can only take so much, I decided to start a blog. I’ve been Blogging since 2010 but I decided to dedicate more time and commitment to Let’s talk about books about 3 months ago.

Let's talk about books is a blog dedicated to reviewing and talking about... well, books. I love reading just like you (I am assuming since you are reading a blog about books) and began this blog to keep track of what I read, inform others about it and to meet fellow readers and talk about what we read. I read books from different genres as you can see from my posts, so this blog may include contemporary fiction, YA fiction, romance, historical fiction, non-fiction, etc... I'm a lame romantic girl, so you will see that most of the books I read will have some romance. I have many favorite books but it would take hours to list them. I will just name a few that come to mind, Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte, The Mortal Instrument Series by Cassandra Clare, My Name is Memory by Anne Brashares and Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick.

I am always doing emergency runs/visits to my nearest Barnes & Noble, Amazon.com, and local library. So if you have any suggestions on what I should read next, just let me know. Do not hesitate to say hello, the reason for my blog is to make friends and discuss what we read.

Thanks for taking the time to learn about me and joining me in talking about books.

Thanks a million to Parajunkee for featuring me. Now I owe her cookies but it’s worth it. J

The linky list:
Weekly Question (answered by yours truly!): 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?

Answer:
Huh, well, I don't watch that many movies so I guess it'll have to be a book! My favorite book character ever is the heroine, Scottish, in Jill Barnett's Bewitching. She's funny, smart, with a fire in her soul and some wicked magic. She turns the Duke's world upside down and rights it for him again and again - but only when SHE wants. I love her strength, her magic, her charm, and her wickedly humorous temper. If she walked into the room right now, my reaction would be to give her a hug and then jump up and down as I asked her to do a magic show! (I'm sure she'd just LOVE that... not)

See you next Friday!!!
