Feature and Follow Friday

I had so much fun last week on my first Feature and Follow Friday that I'm back for more this week!!!!

Go on over and visit the ladies at Alison Can Read and Parajunkee's View for more about the hop and do not, do not forget to stop by this week's feature blog Head Stuck in a Book :) 

This week's Question:

Q: If you could "unread" a book, which one would it be? Is it because you want to start over and experience it again for the first time? Or because it was THAT bad?

My Answer:

I didn't even have to think very long about this answer because I just finished reading Laurell K. Hamilton's 21st book in the Anita Blake vampire hunter series, Kiss the Dead...and HATED it.  
Yes, I've read all the others.
Yes, I've liked most of the others (why on earth would I still be reading otherwise??)
There have been one or two that I really didn't care for...but this one...I could have saved myself some time. There's nothing in this one that I couldn't have skipped...
I hated this one so much that I'm having a difficult time writing the review...I don't write many negative reviews bc I simply don't read books that I don't think I'll like.

This one's brand new so I haven't read any other reviews yet...It will be interesting to see what other Anita Blake fans think.
Sorry, but this one's a stinker.

Feature and Follow Friday

This is my first time on Feature and Follow Friday over at Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read! 

I've been blogging for 3 years, and did you know that it just hit me today after reading the rules/instructions for participating in this hop that not everybody can follow another blogger through GFC.  I honestly had never thought about that! I promise I'm a halfway intelligent person :/
Anyhoo, I signed up for the little Blogger Network follow thingamajigie and posted it in my kinda looks funny there right, with only little me following my little self, ahem.  :)

This week's question is 

Q: Happy Father’s Day! Who is your favorite dad character in a book and why?

My answer:
I read a lot of different stuff...from vampire hunters to classics...but the best Father in all the books/series I've ever read is Father Tim from Jan Karon's best selling Mitford series.  Now, don't smirk.  I'm a very tightly wound kind of woman who has more than a full plate of responsibilities (like most of us).  I have to constantly battle to keep my emotions in tact, stay organized and not get overwhelmed.  Father Tim is just the opposite.  He's peaceful, he's trustworthy, he takes in strays (boys and dogs), and he loves others just as they are...but in a believable way, not an unrealistic holier than thou way.  Does that make sense? He's also not perfect but never pretends to be.  
Just an all around older guy who enjoys life and encourages those around him to do the same.
This is where you can find Father Tim:

And, this is what I think he looks like: 

Now, on to find some new blogging friends on the hop!!
