This week's question is:

Q. Let's step away from books for a second and get personal. What T-Shirt slogan best describes you?

There are two. One for when I am not baking and have a tantrum and want something yummy:

Keep Calm and Have a Cupcake

And then when that fails and there is a baking disaster and I have a tantrum:

This Week’s Hop

Character Envy: If you could be one character from a book, who would you choose & why?

I don’t know really. I think I would have too pick  Katniss from the Hunger Games, Clary from the Mortal Instruments series or Rose from Vampire Academy. I loved  Katniss simply because she was so kickass. I want to see the movie simply because I want to see her kickass live…not for the boys that they casted as Peeta and Gale. I don’t care what you say and how good the actors were in their previous roles, they are not Peeta and Gale. Look at those pictures! Ugh. I picked Rose because she’s spunky, smart and kickass on the same level as Katniss. I picked Clary because she was not like a certain vampire loving brunette and did not become a droid when she fell in love.


  1. Hi, I'm a new follower!

  7. Katniss was one I was thinking of as well...she definitely kicks ass.

  8. I'm another new follower!

    I ADORE the Cupcake shirt! I have a "Make Cupcakes Not War" shirt; but I think I'd like the Keep Calm one even better! *lol*

    I absolutely adore Katniss as well; but I'm not sure she'd be my "Character of choice" for this question - I'm just a bit too wimpy for that!

  9. Love the shirt choices! I have bookmarks that say that :)

    New follower!
