Welcome friends! I have started this entry in the global technosphere because I have been in love with books since the age of 2. Among the busy business of being a new teacher, this is my outlet for sharing thoughts on a love of reading a wide variety of books. My inspiration can be summed up with a yearbook quote from a teacher written when I was 8: "To the only girl at recess I see reading a book. Good for you!"
My blog title is quoted from a classmate who asked me this once. Believe it or not, I've also heard it as a teacher :D

Friday Hop!

A weekly meme hosted by Jennifer @ Crazy For Books.

This week's topic is:

Share your favorite post from the last month and tell us why it’s close to your heart!

I haven't participated in the hop for quite some time but I must be in a hoppin' good mood :D  It's hard to choose a favourite post, but I will choose my review of Night Shift by Stephen King, because I loved the opportunity to write small reviews of the short stories.  It was actually harder to write than a review of a single novel but I enjoyed it equally.

Have a wonderful weekend!  The weather here has been awesome & let's hope it stays this way for a while...or all summer will do :)


  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I enjoyed your review on Night Shift, I liked how you did "mini reviews" for each story. I've never read anything by Stephan King, although have seen the movies. Do you think it would be best to begin with something like this or maybe The Shinning?
    Have a marvelous weekend.

  2. I love the way you reviewed that book. I'm not a huge fan of short stories, but if I ever do a review of a book of short stories, I'll definitely consider doing the review in a similar manner. What a great idea! Have a good week.

  3. Aww your header story is so cute - I can relate! Your newest follower :)

  4. I don't like Stephen King...too scary. The only book I ever read of his was THE DARK HALF, and I never read any more.

    I like this week's question.

    Have a fun blog hop.


  5. Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier :) Your review makes me want to crack into some short stories myself - I haven't read those for sooooo long!

    Take care,
    Ms. C

  6. Stephen King tends to focus on gross bodily mishaps like urinary tract infections and hemorrhoids, but other than that, I've always loved his books, short stories and all.
