Book Blogger Hop & Tagalong Friday

Book Blogger Hop

The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly event hosted by Jennifer at Crazy for Books and runs from Friday to Sunday.

This weekend's question/topic: Who's your all-time favorite book villain?

There are a couple that come to mind --

Hannibal Lecter from Thomas Harris' series was hella scary - possibly because I read 'Silence of the Lambs' when I was quite young.  Talking about scary books read when I was too young (I used to read my mum's books when she wasn't looking): Cujo the dog, from the Stephen King book of the same name.  I was terrified!

I've participated in the Blog Hop a couple of times now, but I thought I'd add myself to the Tagalong Friday meme as well.  So here 'tis lovelies :)

18 & Over Book Blogger Tagalong Friday is a weekly event hosted by Laurie at Bitten by Paranormal Romance (Please excuse the clunky links, I couldn't get it to work the way I wanted).

This week's question: How many book do you read in a month?

So far in 2011 I've managed 20 books in Jan and Feb, but I usually average around 15 or so in a month.  It just depends on what my work load is like at uni and how late I've had to stay at work - sadly, even though I work in a library, they don't pay me to read books all day!

That being said I have some lovely new books to read over the weekend, bring on the Nalini Singh! I wish this one was twice as long - I've got so much to do.

    I love nalini singh! She is a goddess. For reals.

  4. Hi there, new follower

    I have to agree with Hannibal, thats why I cant read the book! watched the movie and he scared me for live... the same goes for Cujo, I couldnt read the book because we had a St Bernard, and I just couldnt think of him as being viscious...

    Great picks! Come visit me anytime

  5. Hannibal Lecter is the one I chose too, but I never read the book. It's because of the movie. I couldn't think of any book villains.

  6. I stopped by from the blog hop.

  7. Come over and check my villain! coming through on the blog hop.

  8. Hi, hon - happy to be a follower, and looking forward to following your blog. I share your Stephen King love . . . my fave villain has to be Randal Flagg.

  12. My favorite book villain is, hands down, is the Napoleon of crime -
    Professor James Moriarty.

    never guess why.

  20. Hi! I'm a new follower from the 18 and over tag along. You sure do read fast! Even in my best months, I can only get 12 or so done, and that's when I'm not writing at all.

    Have a great weekend!

  21. Hi, Cataluna! Happy weekend! Thanks for stoping by my blog back in February, i'm sure you can find that movie in Australia, don't you have Amazon?)

  22. Hi Orhedea, The DVD is on Amazon, but it's $55 and since I'm being all good with my DVD and book buying I can't get it. Fingers crossed work will buy a copy :)

    Hi Gabrielle, I do read fast, I've always got a book in my hand - or in my ears. It does help that there's nothing on tv either.

    Hope you guys had a great weekend.

  23. Tyraa - I completely agree with you about Nalini Singh, I'm loving her at the moment and am getting very excited to meet her at the end of the month.

  24. A big hello to new followers, it seems a lot of people agree with Hannibal being a deliciously evil villan. Anthony Hopkins was fantastic in the movie and I thought Gaspard Ulliel was scary as him in his formative years.

    I often think that Stephen King is always scarier in his books, having the visual can be terrifying, but being able to use your own imagination along with his writing, for me, makes it much scarier.
