Follow Friday & Tagalong Friday {11}

Follow {my Book Blog} Friday is a weekly event hosted by

This week's feature blog is:
Ninja Girl Reads

This week's question:
It's circle time! Time for us to open up and share. Can you tell us FIVE quirky habits or things about you? We all have them...

Hmmm...I'm getting a sense of deja vu here!

OK, here are my FIVE quirky habits/things about me:

1. I'm OCD when it comes to shelving and storing my books...even ebooks. My Nook is categorized by the following shelves: genres, for review, read, series to start, series to finish and novellas.

2. I read more than one book at a time, usually up to three at a time without getting the plots mixed up!

3. I'm a night-owl who does her best blogging when the creatures of the night come out to play!

4. When I'm stressed, spending time in a bookstore is the only therapy I need!

5. I've been fascinated with vampires and werewolves since I was a little girl and dreamed of meeting one someday...actually I secretly still do!

Happy Follow Friday!

18 & Over Book Blogger Tagalong Friday is a weekly theme hosted by Laurie at Bitten by Paranormal Romance where book bloggers who review adult books come together to make new friends and share little tidbits about themselves!
Question of the week:
Did you set yourself a reading goal?

I usually don't set a goal but like to try and read more and more with each passing year. Last year I read 90 books so I set a goal to reach 100 this year. I'm definitely on my way to reach that goal sooner than I thought since I'm currently 21 book ahead of schedule! For the most part I just keep track of the books I read...I like to stick to one rule when it comes to reading: quality over quantity!'re it!


  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog and good luck with reaching your goal. Have a great weekend!


  2. Thanks for stopping by Bitten Books! I'm following your blog now too :)

    I love being a nightowl. At night is the only time I can get things done. During the summer I actually change my sleep schedule so that I sleep from 6AM to 2PM.

  3. Hey :)
    I wish I could do your #2 up there. I've tried, and I don't necessarily mix up the plots, but I usually just end up getting pulled into one over the other and finish it first just 'cause. *shrugs* Anyway, I noticed that in your "About Me" you mentioned sexy Alpha males and a strong heroine. You've probably read them already, but one of my fave series is the Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs. Now, that lady knows how to write some sexy heros :)
    Going off to follow now,

  4. Hi & Happy Friday!

    I can relate to a few of your quirks :)

    I have listed my answers here,

    Have a great weekend..

  5. Haha I got the deja vu too so I checked...the one that seems similar was 5 quirky book related habits/facts and most people seem to have picked book-related ones for this too.

    Being in a supermarket helps me when I'm stressed-looking at food calms me down!

    Old follower, happy friday!

  6. LOL - nice to see somebody else whose OCD extends to their ebooks. I do the same thing. :)

    Sally @ Bibrary Bookslut

  7. Yet another OCD book lady. I love it! I'm OCD about my books too, but not in the same way. I've seen a lot of similar ones to yours this hop though so know you are not alone! lol

  8. Love your list! And I still secretly wish it as well. ;) I've always thought about all the mythology about vamps erasing minds and wounds... Basically I've come to the conclusion you might have met one without you knowing! Lol.

    Old follower! My quirky list can be found here!

    Rebecca @ kindle fever

  9. I too suffer from book organizing OCD. Now that I have a Kindle I use a book management program called Calibre. It makes things so much easier.
    Have a good weekend.

  10. Thanks for stopping. :) Old follower returning the love... :) I am mostly OCD with my books, if I had more room, I could have them organized the way I want them - by genre, author, etc... right now they are at least separated by genre. :)And for a stress reliever- I often just sit and organize them, it's relaxing. :)

    Mandy @ Reality Bites

  11. I've always had an obsessive thing about faeries... Still do. ;)

    My Blog Hop & FF!
