Follow Friday

Follow Friday hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.

This week's follow question is .... more of a feature of a fellow blogger of our own choosing .. so I chose my pal, Tristen over at Totally Booked Solid.  Tristen and I live in the same town, literally minutes from each other. This allows us to get together to trade books, have mommy's nights out, go to book events together, or whatever. Her husband is even our go-to computer guy! It's awesome having a book blogger friend so close by - we just have so much in common! I asked some of the featured questions and added a few of my own .. Here's your chance to get to know Tristen of Totally Booked Solid

1. When did you start blogging?
Honestly I started up the blog in 2008 but never really got started full time with it until last  year . I figured I'm reading so many books, why not share them with the world and now i do :)

2. What is your favorite part of book blogging?
  I would be lying if I said I didn't enjoy the free books, but honestly it's more than that - it's the fact that it has expanded what I read. I also love meeting new bloggers and authors and publishers .. there are some great ones out there.

3. What is your favorite book(s)? I have so many favorites.  My favorite kid book was the Pokey Little Puppy - one of my favorite reads now is Shatter Me -  if you haven't read it you so should.

4. What has been the best thing that has happened to you because of book blogging?
Best thing to happen to me  from blogging was getting a blurb from my review put in an upcoming book by Janelle Stadler. She is putting a part of my review for Eden into her next book Eden West. I find that amazing and humbling.


5. What blog posts are you most proud of?

 Hmmm that is a hard one I guess my review of Eden - because it gained me a friendship with the author and a blurb in her new book and I guess my review of First Date because the author Krista McGee actually posted a comment on it ... that was pretty exciting for me.

6. What do you like to do outside of blogging and reading?
Playing with my daughter Alexis ( we like to read together .. she is 2 going on 14 :), I like playing video games too .. yep I'm a female gamer :)

Just for Fun

3 things besides books that you're addicted to?

Cherry Coke - hands down  I could have have this pumped into  a straight IV line and be happy
Scones - I can sit and eat a whole container of them - it's what I like to call my fat girl treat
Sleep-  I love that just woke up feel, where your covers are just right and  your body is so relaxed , I'm fairly sure i would stay in bed all day if I could.

favorite pop: cherry coke
favorite color : black though my husband would say that it's not a color but  actually the absence of color .. he is such a smarty pants
favorite place to read: the shower .. I know I know I'm a weirdo but I do in fact read many a good book in the shower

If you were stuck on a island what are the three things you would want the most to have:
Hmm well a collection of good books - maybe Shatter me  or one of my favorite series like Raised by Wolves
Endless supply of sunblock- I'm about as white as can be and burn so easily
and last but not least maybe some hunky guy to keep me company - maybe Ash from The Iron Fae series .. he might just be able to make me forget i was stuck on a island or maybe at that point i just wouldn't care lol.
Well, that is just a little bit about my awesome friend, Tristen. Please go check out her blog: Totally Booked Solid and hit us both up with a follow! :)
