My First Follow Friday!

So this is my first ever Follow Friday, a bloghop that is hosted over at parajunkee's blog!

This week's question is:  

What are you doing to prepare for an upcoming zombie apocalypse and/or the return of Mel Gibson to the silver screen? (Both of which could be terrifying.)

Zombieland taught me everything I need to know in the case of a zombie apocalypse! Cardio, the double tap, avoiding bathrooms! I've got a kick ass partner, I always carry a change of underwear, and I always check the back seat. Always’s a marathon, not a sprint, unless it’s a sprint, then sprint and; if in doubt, always know the way out! 

I'm rather behind on the official challenge, as I didn't start until today. I'm just going do two extra days! So today I went to the library and got some books out. I got Committed out, the sequel to Eat, Pray, Love by Liz Gilbert, which I've been meaning to buy for ages. As a long-awaited book by one of my favourite authors however, I don't want to rush it, so I'm not including it in the challenge. I will be reviewing that for you when I have read it though :) 

So I started today trying to read In a Strange Room by Damon Galgut.

 I couldn't get into it though and the writing style made me not want to try! Maybe I will try again at some point over the next 30 days, because it looks like a book I would enjoy if I did get into it! 

So I put that down and picked up How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe by Charles Yu.

 Yes I admit that I chose it simply because of it's title, but can you blame me?! Yeeees I knooow 'never judge a book by it's cover', but this one just looked awesome and so far it's not failed to impress. I'll review it tomorrow and let you all know how I went on! 


  1. Nice to meet you :)

    Happy Hoppin'!

  2. As the saying goes – the best defense is a good offense. I’ve got that covered! My preparations for the zombie apocalypse are not just intricate, they’re stylish. I’m not talking “last stand” stuff here. I mean to lure in the zombies and slaughter them wholesale while we sip champagne and watch.

    How am I going to do that? Follow me back to my blog at and read all about it.

    Thank G-d it’s Follow Friday!

  3. Ohmygosh! You have Beauty and Beast's library in your background?! That is so awesome!

    Sorry... I got off topic there. Thanks for following me. Welcome to book blogging. We are a happy bunch and we don't bite (much).

  5. I clearly need to watch this zombieland film, you and amy both referenced it. I'm okay tho, I have simon: zombie expert extraordinaire in my house-I'm never gonna die. He has a machete especially for this very occasion.
