Follow Friday - 1/21/11

[I'm pretty sure] This is my first time ever participating in Parajunkee's Friday Follow. I figured, what better way to spend the kickoff of Bloggiesta! than by letting others know that I'm back in business!

Apparently each week's follow comes with a question to encourage...I guess conversation?
This week's question is:

Who do you cheer for?

I guess I'll answer this question honestly, even though it will probably lose me a few old followers or put off potential new ones -closes eyes and holds breath- ... the Patriots. There, I said it. Against my boyfriend's (and about 98% of my other friends) wishes, I am, and have been for a while, a Patriot's fan. I think it happened during the 2004 Superbowl, when I SO greatly enjoyed dying my hair red white and blue in support of the team that I just decided they would be my favorite. During the next year I actually watched their games throughout the year and was just so impressed at how Randy Moss seemed to catch anything and everything that Tom Brady threw at him. Even though I was very upset that they got rid of Moss, I guess I'm still a fan. And contrary to practically everyone's opinion who hasn't known me since 2004, NO, it isn't because I think Tom Brady is hot (I'm pretty against guys having long hair as far as finding them attractive).

Want to know what other fantastic blogs I've found to follow this week (as a result of Friday Follow, of course)?:

Laura Ashlee at Ramblings of a (Future) Librarian - I'm just kind of in love with everything. The books she chooses, her layout is cute, I LOVE the owl that she uses in the layout and as a rating system, and hello? "future librarian"?! I just wish I had an award lying around to give her!

Book Couture - I love how she's gun-ho on her first Bloggiesta! - She's an inspiration for me! I'm also digging her choices of books to review (YA) and the fact that she's okay with making posts of questions to her audience, rather than acting like she knows it all.

Jordyn & Yani at The Secret Life of an Avid Reader - I can'r believe I'm only their 12th follower! Maybe there's just something in the air about owls today...(go to their blog, you'll see what I mean) I love their headers and, again, yay for YA books! Plus, they're currently having a giveaway for Lauren Oliver's new release, Delirium. I've never heard of this particular YA book before (apparently that means I live under a rock) but it sounds awesome.


  1. I am hopping by from Follow Friday. In terms of sports, I like the Carolina Hurricanes (hockey). My faves are Ward, Staal, Rutuu, Skinner and Sutter. In terms of book boys: Edward, Stefan, Peeta, Ash and Luc. I’m following you and would love it if you follow me back! Brandi from Blkosiner’s Book Blog

  2. Thanks for the post. I can't believe you hadn't heard of delirium? I must be hyping it up too much in my head, but I am VERY excited for its release!

  3. Stopping by from the blog hop and your newest follower! Funny comment about Tom Brady and his modified Beiber haircut. Stop by my blog when you get a chance.

  4. New follower! Stop by and say hi if you get a chance!

  5. Jinx, It's probably me, not you. I only had the chance to look at about 15 different blogs so far from the FF, and on one of them I saw a countdown for Delirium, so...yeah. I'm probably the only one who doesn't know about it.

  6. Hi Elisabeth! Thank you so much for your kind words, you have no idea how much it means to me! You've literally made my day, so thank you! Your blog is so pretty, by the way, I love the design. I'm following you, for sure. ;)
