Book Blogger Hop & Tag Along Friday

It's another delightful Friday, I don't have much planned, cleaning, uni, and trying to organise myself for the ARRA Conference which begins next week in Sydney *happy dance*  I've got a few books I want to finish and a stack of DVDs I need to watch.  But before all of that lets get on with the friday fun :)

Book Blogger Hop

The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly event hosted by Crazy-for-Books.  It turned 1 on March 5th and while I've only just started participating, I will still send a huge happy birthday!  This weeks question, my dears: 

"Do you read only one book at a time, or do you have several going at once?"
 
For me, the anwser is several!  I have so many books I want to read, I tend to try an read as many as I can.  All at once.  When it comes to books, I don't have a lot of impulse control.  I usually have at least three on the go, but at the moment I've reading five.  In print, ebook and audio formats.  I'm never without a book.  I know, I have a problem - but admitting it's the first step, right?

18 & Over Book Blogger Tag Along Friday is a weekly event hosted by Laurie at Bitten by Paranormal Romance.
What was your favorite book you read last month?
Okay, I'm going to cheat and put two down, basically because one is adult reading - Tempt Me by Shiloh Walker. Seriously freakin HOT!  This may only be a short story, but it packs a punch.  I've got a lady crush on Shiloh, I can safely say I've loved everything of hers I've read, she is such an excellent writer.  The other is a YA book: Shiver by Maggie Siefvater  I couldn't put it down, it was so well written.  Bittersweet, angsty, painful and beautiful all rolled in one.
 
There was lots of swoonage from me in February - but I think that's mainly 'cause I'm just a little bit dramatic.  Have an awesome weekend everyone - enjoy yourself :)

  1. I have been trying to read one book at a time this year. Success rate is about 75%, thus far. I did stumble a few times but that happens. LOL!

  6. Ditto on loving the header & it's caption! I can only do one book at a time, but I usually only take a day, maybe a day & a half to finish one so I move through them quickly.

  7. I love pics like my header - alas I'm still to fine a book titled Spirit Lake! I'll admit there have been times when I been reading one book and been mixed up thinking I'm reading something else but I usually work it out - always helps if you read different genres :)

    Thanks for stopping by everyone.

  11. I think you have an awesome sense of humor. WHat library - you should be on Saturday Night Live! I lived in Lerida and Calafell in Cataluña one summer a million years or so ago -- is that where you are from?

  12. Not everyone can multi-task and nobody should. When it comes to book sure, I can't read four books simultaneously (or even two, for that matter!) but there are times I'll juggle as many as four books at a time depending on the subject matter, the urgency or more often both.

    The real trick to this is what KINDS of books to juggle. Hop on over to my blog and learn the method behind my madness - http://www.howardshermannet

  14. Yes, it all comes down to impulse control. I wants it, yes I do. I'm a multi booker myself. I'm a new follower and look forward to more fun posts.

  18. It sounds like everyone's having a great weekend :) Thanks for all the blog love, I only recently changed the layout and name - it's much more 'me' now.
    I'm glad my humor comes across, I get into trouble sometimes, people don't always get it. But it definitely keeps me and mine amused.
