Jennifer at Crazy for Books hosts this great meme weekend that runs from Friday until Monday.
From Jennifer: This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books! It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs to read! So, grab the logo, post about the Hop on your blog, and start HOPPING through the list of blogs that are posted in the Linky list (You need to go to Jennifer’s page for Linky!)
Your blog should have content related to books, including, but not limited to book reviews.
1. Enter your book blog link in the Linky List at Crazy for Books, including the genre that you review!
(In your link, please state the main genre that you review: eclectic, contemp. fiction, ya, paranormal, mystery, non-fiction, etc.)
Example: Young1 (chick lit etc)
2. Post about the Hop on your blog. Spread the word about the book party! The more the merrier! In your blog post, answer the following question (new question each week!).
This weeks question: “Pick a character from a book you are currently reading or have just finished and tell us about him/her.”
My Answer: I am currently reading Room by Emma Donoghue and the character is Jack. I still have a way to go through the book so whatever is included in this answer is only from what I have read so far.
Jack is a newly turned Five year old boy who lives in an 11′ x 11′ room with his ‘ma’. He dotes on his ‘ma’ and believes that she knows absolutely everything. Until now he has believed that everything outside of room is not real and only himself, ma and the things that surround them are. He has just reached the stage where he is questioning everything around him and is curious about whether there is a world outside of ‘Room’. The one thing that surprised me about Jack is even after five years his mum is still giving him breast milk – it is not common to that age in the area that I grew up, maybe I am being short-sighted?
Not even half way through the book and at the same time as feeling angry at his ‘ma’ for not letting him experience the outside world there is a sympathy for her as something must be holding her back – but I am yet to find out! I look forward to it very much.
The aim is to finish this book by tomorrow afternoon and share my thoughts with you all – stay tuned!
