TGIF! Feature & Follow Friday {1}

Feature and Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee of Parajunkee's View and Alison from Alison Can Read. This is a fun meme where bloggers can interact with one another through following and visiting each others' posts.

The two featured blogs this week are:
Little Read Riding Hood and Book That Thing

This week's question: "Have you had a character that disappointed you? One that you fell in love with and then “broke up” with later on in either the series or a stand-alone book? Tell us about him or her."

Okay well this is going to be boring - I can honestly say that I have never been disappointed with my favorite characters in any book. But I'm wary because Gale seems to be a common topic tonight, and he is my favorite from the Hunger Games (I've only read books 1 and 2, eek). I really don't want to dislike him ):.

This week on The Bookish Poodle:

Wow, I posted so many reviews this week! I'm probably going to tone it down next week.

TGIF at GReads! - This feature is for Fridays to re-cap the week's posts & to propose a question for other bloggers to answer.

This week's question: "Reading Blues: We all get them from time to time. What helps you overcome those reading slumps when nothing seems to grab your attention?"

This is a good question! Sometimes when nothing seems to appeal to your mood (new or old books), there might not be anything you can do about it. It might just be the way you're feeling :b. So, if nothing seems to grab my attention, I would resort to my favorite book or one that I really really liked. Sometimes when you're stressed or whatever, re-reading a good book can help you relax. You don't really have to pay attention to every little detail, since you already read it before. :3 If I just overall don't feel like in a reading mood, I would watch a movie or go out running or something :).

What about you? How do you overcome the reading blues? Comment below!


  1. Lol, I wont spoil the Hunger Games for you, but I will say that I found the ending satisfactory.

    I normally overcome the reading blues by visiting a secondhand bookstore - I think you can always find something a bit different and interesting when you go vintage book shopping.

  2. I haven't read the Hunger Games series yet, but Gale has been a common answer. It took me a while to think of a character that I "broke up" with because it doesn't usually happen.

    New Follower!

  3. He was very weird in the last book, bUT I still like him. LOL

    I'm a new gfc follower. :)

  4. Yeah, Gale is a popular answer today. I haven't started the series yet and I don't want to be biased when I read it.

  5. I almost always reread my favorites, too! :>
