Follow Friday and CANADA DAY GIVEAWAY!

Friday Follow is a blog hop that was started by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.  Each week a different question is posted by our hosts and we will answer!  This is a great opportunity for bloggers to network and interact. 
This week’s question –

Post a photo of your favorite coffee mug 

(or mugs if you can’t choose just one).

(You have to excuse me because I can't seem to rotate this picture...)

at the moment this is my favorite mug. I am not a coffee drinker but a tea drinker.  I LOVE David's tea.  Its ridiculous how expensive it is but I love to steep different types of tea depending on my mood.  I even drink a special tea when I feel like I'm getting a cold.  This is one of the David's tea mugs.  The bamboo tea topper acts as a holder for my tea strainer as well.  They often release mugs that change colors when you add hot water but I haven't been able to get my hands on one yet....awesomesauce.

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.


We live in the land of Beiber, maple syrup, protected by mounties, surrounded by mountains, have great health care, eat poutine, like to sit in Adirondak chairs and build Inukshuks along the highways.  We are home to Canada Geese in the summer (what do they call them in the winter?), have multiple meanings for the word "eh" and often find ourselves covered in snow and ice 3/4 of the year...or maybe that is just Alberta.

So this year, there was no Canada Day Blog Hop.  :( BUT we didn't want to miss out on the fun so we going to give you guys stuff anyway!  Each of us has a Rafflecopter giveaway going on so please check it out.
