It's that time of the week, hop hop hop!!

Book Blogger Hop

Every week Jennifer at Crazy-for-Books hosts a blog hop. Put your link in, post a comment and you can discover a lot of great blogs. The Hop lasts Friday-Monday every week. This week's question/task: Since today is April Fool's Day in the USA, what is the best prank you have ever played on someone OR that someone has played on you? Oh boy. I'm not a big prankster, but I have had pranks played on me. The one that sticks out the most was during a high school biology class. It was my turn to go up and write on the board. As I got up someone stuck a sign on my ***. I guess this qualifies as a prank, but I didn't really find it funny. I was in tears afterward. It might have been funny to a few people, but imagine that happening to you in a room FULL of people. So glad I'm out of high school and beyond that childish crap.

Here are some blogs I came across:
That's What Liz Read
The Bookish Brunette
The Flashlight Reader

Note: A review of My One and Only by Kristan Higgins will be posted on Tuesday. Also, I'm looking for takers for my What's Up Tweeps?! feature. Here is April's question: Do you post negative book reviews? Why or why not? E-mail responses to Entries are open until April 21. If you have a question or topic that you would like to see discussed here, feel free to e-mail me. Who knows what we can come up with. Happy reading everyone!


  1. Awww! Does that mean its fair to say that you think I'm awesome? ;)

  2. Thanks for the follow. I saw your answer, you made your husband's heart skip a couple of beats!

  3. Love your banner! Can't wait to hear what you think about Kristin Higgins' new one. New follower.


  4. Coming through on the blog hop. I invariably get caught every year to my husband's jokes. Despite it happening year in year out!

  5. Hi
    Just hopping by and following through. I really enjoy Kristin Higgins sense of humor. My One and Only was a fun read

  6. What a mean prank to pull! Your blog looks beautiful. I am now following :)

  7. That was not a nice thing for someone to do to you. I'm glad to be out of high school too. Here's mine:

  8. Oh, I always hated stuff like that. Not a nice prank at all!

    Hopping by.

  9. Awww. That sucks.
    Here's mine:

  10. I'm off to check out some of your blogs.

  11. Gah... I'm also glad I'm out of high school and thought I had left that behind until I went back to college where they continue to do some of those things. Ugh! That wasn't nice at all and I would have been in tears too.

    Have a great weekend!

  12. That's why I hate pranks! Someone always ends up getting hurt, embarrassed, or traumatized. I wouldn't do that to anyone - it's just mean.

    Glad to have found you via the Hop!

  13. Hopping by and discovered your blog -- very nice! :) I'm not a prank person, and I must have blocked out anything like that from high school (thankfully). Happy Hopping!

  14. At first I wasn't going to participate in this week's Book Blogger Hop. I'm not even sure why.

    But here I am. And I'm glad! To dispel any false impressions people may have had about me being a old, stodgy fuddy-duddy I'm happy to share some of my very best pranks with you.

    Highlights include - low-grade explosives, eggs and salt shakers. Get all the side-splitting details over on my blog -

    They date back to my younger years as a Brooklyn boy which brings about some introspection.

    I'm going to go pull some pranks today. Look out world! I'm coming out of prankster retirement!

  15. That was childish....and so embarrassing to you. I think all pranks are childish...high school can be awful.

    I am stopping by from the blog hop.

    Hope you have a fun blog hop.

    Stop by my blog if you like to see my answer.
