Most Popular: What blog post has gotten the most 
comments/activity on your blog this year?
The one were I photoshopped myself reading Hunger Games got quite a few comments. So did the Adele Music Post.
But mostly the weekly memes get the most hits. That is why I always try to participate!


Teaser Tuesday (18) and Tune In Tuesday (20) and Top Ten Tuesday (11)

Teaser Tuesday is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. Here are the rules: Grab your current read. Open to a random page. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page, and BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS
The Host by Stephanie Meyer
"Anger flashed through me, hot and wild. I gasped in surprise at the unexpected reaction. I'd heard of the emotional instability of these human bodies, but this was beyond my ability to anticipate. In eight full lives, I'd never had an emotion touch me with such force." (page 21)
Tune in Tuesday is hosted by Ginger at GReads. Hop on over there and join in the fun!

I haven't been to many concerts. In fact, the last concert I'd ever been to was Boyz II Men and Mary J. Blige and Montel Jordan. Yeah, it's been a loooooong time.

However, as soon as the recent winners of The Sing-Off, Pentatonix (YAY PENTATONIX) go on tour, I have got to see them live.

Pentatonix feat. Nick Lachey - Give Me Just One Night (Una Noche) by 98
I had such a big crush on Nich Lachey back in the day. He still got it!

Pentatonix - Dog Days Are Over by Florence & the Machine
This is my absolute favorite performance of theirs. I could watch it over and over and I have.

Pentatonix - Piece of my Heart by Janis Joplin
I love Janis J so when I heard they were doing this song I got a little nervous but they did it justice.

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
This week's topic: Top Ten Childhood Favorites
The Get Along Gang Books
Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret.
I just found out this book was banned. Why exactly? I guess I will have to go back and read it as an adult to see what the big deal is.
Charlotte's Web
I read this book over and over.
Where the Sidewalk Ends and A Light in the Attic
I still have these books.
Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark
I still remember some of the stories from this book. I would read this then try to go to bed. Not too bright.
The Berenstain Bear Books
I pretty much had all of these also. Man, why didn't I keep my collection?
Value Believing In Yourself Story Louis Pasteur
The Value of Believing in Yourself: The Story of Louis Pasteur
I believe my mom still has this book somewhere.
The Babysitter's Club Series
I think I had most of these as well. I still have some.
Sweet Valley High Series
Same with these.
I read ALOT as a kid. Growing up like an only child in the 80's before cartoon network, you had to know how to entertain yourself.


Follow Friday & TGIF

Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read  This weeks featured blog is Lauren Gets Literal and the weekly question is:
Q: What is your biggest pet peeve when it comes to books? Maybe you don’t like love triangles or thin plots? Tell us about it!
My biggest pet peeves would be too many details. Sure, I'd like to know that Suzy is sitting under a tree. I might even like to know that it is fall and the leaves are gently falling from the oak or whatever type tree. I don't need to know the species of the tree, the bugs that inhabit it or tons of flowery detail about the direction of the wind bending the branches making blah blah blah. Some writer get so caught up in ornate details that is stalls the story. I want to know details but not too many minute little detail because then I'm thinking about the tree not the main character.

Writing Reviews 101: What's your process for writing book reviews? 
Any tips or suggestions you would recommend to other bloggers?
I have absolutely no process. I read the book and as I'm reading sometimes I make notes but most of the time I don't. When I'm finished I try to write the review as soon as possible but sometimes I don't quite get to it. Then I have to go back and look over the book again to remember what I thought about it while I was reading. My suggestions to other bloggers: don't be like me. Everytime I start a book I say I'm going to look more at the writing structure and grammar and really critique the writing style not just the subject and content but then I start writing from the heart and say plainly what I felt about the book. I don't think my reviews would be considered formal book reviews. I really should get better at it and I will : D
OAN: I'm glad Thanksgiving and NaNoWriMo are over. Things will pick up around here next week. I'm so looking forward to my two week vacay coming at the end of December. I plan to read and read and read. Can't wait!
