Friday Blog Hop - March 25

Book Blogger Hop

In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and find new book-related blogs that we may be missing out on! This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books! It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs that they may not know existed!

Each week, participating blogs are asked questions to post and answer on their websites.

This week’s question – "If you could physically put yourself into a book or series…which one would it be and why?"

Oh My! What an interesting question. I think if I really could put myself into a book or series it would have to be the Pink Carnation series by Lauren Willlig.  I have often said to my family that I was born into the wrong century and I should have been a lady of leisure, with just a few servants and a little bit of money.  This way I'd have the leisure and the excitement as well.  If you're interested in my post about these books you can find it HERE  I wonder which series Christinabean would pick?

Welcome to the Paperback Princesses! Make yourself at home, take a look around our blog and let us know what you think in the comments section. We would love to hear what you have to say about our posts. We often try to comment on your comments as well so feel free to start a conversation! Since there are two of us running the show, we always have a variety of titles and event postings. Be sure to check out our own personal meme page. Check out Fantastic Fairytales, Let's Hear it for the Boys, In Case you Missed it and a few others. We try to not only focus on new YA books but also great titles from the past.


  1. I completely agree! I love the Pink Carnation series, and have the new one to listen to on audio. I thought the Christmas story she had about Turnip Fitzhugh was pretty darn cute. (New follower through Blog Hop)

  2. Apologies in advance for my answer this week as it will not immediately resonate with the book blogger population which happens to be 99.5% female.

    My choice is a book series geared towards guys which won’t enthrall the vast majority of my fellow book bloggers (who are almost entirely female) with the extensive discussion of powerful weapons and sexy milspec gear, beautiful women, eye-popping action sequences (with occasionally obscene violence), and the like.

    But there IS something in my answer that just about everyone of the female persuasion can benefit from my decidedly “books for guys” post. Hop on over to to find out what it is.

    Happy Hop Friday!

  3. Haven't heard of this series...sounds pretty neat, though.

    Hope everyone has a fun hope.

    My answer has three choices - stop by if you like.

  4. Nice pick! I'm going to have to read up on this series, it sounds really interesting! :)

    New Follower! Happy Friday!

  5. Hopping by! I haven't read the series, but the cover is lovely... might have to keep an eye out for it!

  6. Hopping by. I haven't heard of this series, but I love your answer, I often think the same about myself, I love the concept of living in those times, but I know I would find it hard to be a lady in that era. I'd have to make sure I was a trail blazing lady!
