Follow Friday (28) Blog Hop (27)


Are you going to Book Expo America (BEA) and/or the Book Blogger Convention (BBC) this year?"
 I came very, very close to going but unfortunely the person I wanted to go with said she would go to late, and I didn't have enough money to pay for everything that needed to be paid for. I'm definitely going to keep that in mind come next year. Hope everyone that does get to go has fun. :) Just know I'm jealous of the awesome time you will probably have.

The Blogger Apocalypse made me a little emotional. What is the most emotional scene in a book that you have read lately?
Honestly, I have yet to read a truly emotional scene. I think the only read I can really think of is If I stay and I read that awhile back.  There's one part where Mia's grandpa goes into her hospital room and talks to her, telling her it's ok to let go. *He looks like he's about to leave, but then he doubles back to my bedside, bends so that his face is level with my ear, and whisper in to it. It's okay, he tells me. If you want to go. Everyone wants you to stay. I want you to stay more than I've ever wanted anything in my life. But that's what I want and I could see why it might not be what you want. So I just wanted to tell you that I understand if you go. It's okay if you have to leave us.  It's okay if you want to stop fighting. (Grandpa) This was the first time today that anyone has acknowledged what I have lost. (Mia)*  I'm telling you just typing that little bit made my eyes tear up.I mean how hard would that be to tell someone you loved that it's ok to move on to somewhere better. That you understand it's their choice. If I stay review.

Upcomings:
So I've finished Clockwork Angel and A Touch Mortal, and I know I have others to do as well. :)
