Hip Hip Hop and You Don't Stop

I have been a bit of a blogging failure this week, mainly because I've been a reading failure too... So to make up for it, I'm going to participate in some blog hops again this week! Woo! If you've just found me through a blog hop, welcome! And please feel free to have a look around, and see if there's anything that you like the look of...
Book Blogger HopSo, this week, Crazy-For-Books asks: Outside of books, what is your guilty pleasure?
To this, I can but reply that nobody should ever feel guilty about pleasure! But I guess my biggest guilty pleasure is staying in my pjs and watching American TV programmes in bed that we haven't got over here in the UK yet (United States of Tara and True Blood, I'm looking at you...) because it totally makes me feel all ahead of the curve, and in the case of Tara, ahead of everyone else in the country (except my friend Frances with whom I used to watch it) because I'm not even sure they know it exists!




And, Parajunkee's View asks: Do you have anyone you can discuss books with IRL? Tell us about him/her.
I would say that I can pretty much discuss books with any of my friends, and they won't shun me or chase me with sticks for it! But it really depends on the book- there will be some books that only I have read, and so I pretty much just discuss them here on my blog, but when I've read a book that a friend has also read, then watch out for me not shutting up. Ever. Also, having done an English degree, I have pretty much discussed the crap out of books with everyone on my units, as well as my long-suffering fellow University survivor, Frances- just ask either of us about Pamela by Samuel Richardson, and you'll be met with groans of horror and a very stern dressing down of that awful awful book. And I will love it.

So these are my answers, how about you? Are you hopping today, or do you just love me so much that you can't bear to be away from my blog for more than a few hours? Because that's ok if you do, messages of undying love are always appreciated!

  5. Hopping through. How do you get the TV shows if they're not in the UK yet? Through Hulu? Do you have Netflix in the UK?
