Happy Follow Friday! and Blog Hop

WOOT! ITS FRIDAY! That means the week is almost over and the weekend fun is here! Now lets get blogging!

Parajunkee is running a Follow Friday meme that we love. This week's question is from Ashley of Bookaholic Does Blogging.

Q. Just like Ashley said (love it) "Ashley the girl..." who are You the Boy/Girl, instead of You the Blogger?

A. Kristen - Awesome question! So I'm Kristen/ Seeing Night Reviews Blogger hostess. I'm 24 years old and a student at an art school going for my BA in Graphic Design. This will be my second degree and I'll soon be graduating this coming June. I'm a young wife to a marine who is over seas right now and I truly miss him. We just were married in Dec. so our married life hasn't started yet, I can't wait till he gets home. I use to work for Borders Books and Music which got me behind the scenes to meet authors and getting events set up for book releases. I miss working for that company, but I had to move on with school and life and be a grown up. (:

I hope to meet some new bloggers out there and say hello!

Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Crazy for Books, a way to find new bloggers and friends, get to know each other!

Q. If I gave you £50 (or $80) and sent you into a bookshop right now, what would be in your basket when you finally staggered to the till?"

A. Here is my list!
Crux (Arcana #1) by Moira Rogers
Undead and Unwed by MaryJanice Davidson
The Forest of Adventures by Katie M.John
Living on the Edge by Shannon K. Butcher
Eternal Kiss by Jeaniene Frost
Unearthly by Cynthia Hand


  1. Hopping through. New follower! It's so sad to see most of the Borders stores closing. Both because there will be less bookstores and so many people will lose their jobs.

  2. Nice to meet you Allison (: Im sad too I loved working for them and I know a lot of people losing their jobs too. Thanks for following.

  3. Mostly the type made by Kona Bay, although I may also have some from one or two other manufacturers. I'm hoping to eventually make a quilt with them, if I ever get around to finishing the one I've been working on the last few years.

    I'm so envious that you've gotten to work in a Borders! I hope to be able to work part time some day in a bookstore. I'd love that.

  21. Wow! What a great question this week. I always peek at other people's book piles at the checkout link at B&N. That doesn't make me a voyeur, does it?

    The exhibitionist in me has posted my own bookstore shopping list -- and it's not as predictable as you may think!

    Hop on over to my blog for all the suspense and chills of my TBR list -

    Happy Hop Friday!

  26. Heya! Thanks for dropping by my blog, Novel Addiction. I'm late returning the favor (as usual). As soon as I get off work Friday, I start reading and lose complete lack of time. But I guess that's not such a bad habit. ;)

    Have a great weekend!

  27. Hello. You should definitely use some of your own money to buy a copy of Unearthly. It's a great book.

  28. Newest follower here via the Friday hop. I am a new contemporary romance writer but a reader of almost anything. Hope you stop by and check out my blog.

  29. Hi, Kristen! Just dropping by to say hello! I hope you're enjoying your second degree and all the best to you and your hubby. :)

    happy reading!
