Book Blogger Hop and Follow Friday (10)

Follow Friday is a really fun way to network your blog and meet some other really cool bloggers in the process! This weekly event is hosted at Parajunkee's View! The featured bloggers is Ninja Girl from Ninja Girl Reads!

Q: Can you tell us FIVE quirky habits or things about you? We all have them...

A: I know I have quirky habits but when it comes down to pinpointing them or naming them, it's really hard to think what they are exactly. I'll try my best:

1. I brush my teeth in the shower. I know it's weird and some people think it's gross but I keep my toothbrush up pretty high, suction cupped to the shower wall so that it doesn't fall into the tub. But if I does fall in the tub, I buy another one. I also keep another toothbrush and tube of toothpaste at the sink to brush my teeth at night.

2. I only use headphones with the soft ear covers. I can't stand the iPod ear buds because they hurt my ears.

3. If I have to put a book down, I have to end it on a chapter. I can't put a book down in the middle of a page.

4. I love wearing crazy socks but they have to match.

5. I never hang my shirts up inside out. I hate it when my friend or my sister go in my close and try on my shirts, take them off and hang them up inside out. It drives me nuts!

The Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love for the written word. This incredibly awesome weekly event is hosted by Jennifer at Crazy for Books!

Q: If you were give the chance to spend one day in a fictional world (from a book), which book would it be from and what would that place be?

A: As much as I love dystopian novels and the idea of a dystopian world, they can be pretty dangerous and I would want to go somewhere fun. So I think I choose the Nevernever in the Iron Fey series; more specifically the Summer Court. I would want to be a summer faery for a day.

Very efficient -- that brushing the teeth thing. You know, you can always throw your toothbrushes in the dishwasher. I like to do that after we've had a virus in the house. 'Cause if it were me, I'd be dropping that toothbrush a couple times a week -- and those things aren't that cheap!

Happy Reading--and brushing ;)

My hubby likes crazy socks too.

I'm an old follower - I really do like your blog design, I'm hoping to get mine done by Lori in June.

I brush my teeth in the shower, too. It's easier in the morning and helps me get ready faster.

I chose the Iron Fey series too as my world I'd want to live in. I think it'd be so fun! I'd want to go explore all of Nevernever, but spend the majority of my time with the Summer Court.

I'm a new follower! Your 300th to be exact, congrats!

*le gasp* I brush my teeth in the shower too!

Hopping through, old follower!

I love crazy socks too. And I have favorite pairs that I bring out for special occasions. I went through a phase where I would wear mismatched socks - usually the lonely socks left after their partner was lost in the dryer. But now I can't stand the thought of it.

Have a wonderful weekend!

I’ve seen a lot of great picks and gathered some fresh titles to add to my ever-growing TBR list. My answer will probably stun most people because the world I picked is a place most people would be scared to death of and try to escape from. Me? I want in.

Hop on over to my blog and be prepared for the unexpected – http://www.howardsherman.net

I used to do the same thing when I read. I couldn't stop mid-chapter, but as I've gotten busier I've had to get over that quirk :_

I think it is funny that you brush your teeth in the shower. I guess you take morning showers? When did you start doing that? Have you always?

Thank you for stopping by! New follower :)

I thought I was the only one who couldn't stand wearing the Ipod head-phones ! They totally hurt my ears as well lOL!

Thank you for sharing!

Hi Crystal! New follower from Follow Friday. I too love crazy socks (they seem quite popular with bloggers!) but I don't get to wear them much since I'm always working which means boring, or as my boss calls it, conservative dress!

We two things in common! I brush my teeth in the shower and if i have to put a book down, it has to be at the end of a chapter too!!
Thanks for stopping by our blog and I'm a new follower. :)

Hopping through. I used to hate having buds in my ears but now that's the only way I can go.

Haha, I used to brush my teeth in the shower! I was hoping it saved water... Also, I love Iron Fey! Although it's a dangerous world... not sure I'd be there. And besides, I'm Winter Court. :)

Mickey @ imabookshark said...

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog!! I'm glad someone else feels the way about cotton balls as I do. Ewwww. The sound, the feel.. just gross!

I don't like ending in the middle of a page either! That upsets me. Also I agree with the socks, but mine never match. They're all fun with different patterns, but I don't care if I have two of the same as long as they're the same height at the ankle. Brushing your teeth in the shower is smart!

Old follower,

I like to end my book on chapters too. It bothers me when I don't. Hi! Just stopping by. Following you from the Feature and Follow Friday blog hop (finishing from last night!). Would love a follow back: blog.writerslairbooks.com. I also have twitter: @wlbks. Have a 'good read' weekend!

kathy said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm not a fan of hurty ear buds, either.
Have a great weekend!

Sally@Always Lost in Stories said...

Hey, I love crazy socks too, I always wear crazy multi-coloured socks under my dull work clothes!
And you're braver than me- the Nevernever scares me!

Jo said...

I agree -- being a Summer Fey (for at least a day or two) would be fun! :)

Happy Hopping!

Lucy (The Secret Life of Books) said...

Haha I have to admit I never hang my shirts up at all and I don't think I actually own a pair of socks anymore. I only ever wear odd ones!

I love your review on The Body Finder. I've added it to my TBR list. New follower!

Izzy G. said...

Hi, just hopping on back! Your blog is so cute - I'm a new follower :) Oh, and I brush my teeth in the shower too!

Loren Chase said...

I love Om Shanti Om as well! That's one of my favorite Bollywood movies. And jelly beans aren't for everyone! The have some crazy weird flavors lol. I have never tried to brush my teeth in the shower, and I don't think it's weird but I've never thought about it before... it kind of sounds genius! ;) Have a great week!

Both my husband and I brush our teeth in the shower!

Have a great day!
