Follow Friday/Book Blogger Hop June 3

Current Events here at the Bookshelf: You're visiting at the tail end of my week of Star Trek related book reviews! Links to all the articles HERE!

This is Follow Friday, hosted by Parajunkee's View

Today's Question is:

Q. What are you doing to prepare for an upcoming zombie apocalypse and/or the return of Mel Gibson to the silver screen? (Both of which could be terrifying.)

I feel like I'm as prepared as I'm going to be for Zombies. I read enough sci-fi, etc. that not much fazes me, and until we know what type of zombies are encroaching, there's not much more to be done. If you see a suspicious creature, consult the Monster Manual!

Today's Question is:

“Share your favorite post from the last month and tell us why it’s close to your heart!”

Hmmm, I'm pleased with my review of Finishing the Hat, the book of collected Sondheim lyrics, because I enjoyed sharing my love of musicals, but I'm also really happy with the Star Trek reviews that have been posting this week. I had a lot of fun writing a list of books that were recommended to me for a Top Ten Tuesday Post. I've been so busy with work this month that it's been a struggle to keep to a minimum posting schedule, so I don't feel that I've done anything too spectacular in May. 

(Incidentally, my favorite article I've ever written for this blog posted over a year and a half ago. My lengthy, scholarly analysis of Irene Adler.)

  2. just hopping by, happy Friday.

  3. Just doing a blog hop drive by to say hi. (Look, I'm a poet!)

    I hope your Friday is filled with fun and everything necessary to take down any zombies that may do you harm!

  4. As the saying goes – the best defense is a good offense. I’ve got that covered! My preparations for the zombie apocalypse are not just intricate, they’re stylish. I’m not talking “last stand” stuff here. I mean to lure in the zombies and slaughter them wholesale while we sip champagne and watch.

    How am I going to do that? Follow me back to my blog at and read all about it.

    Thank G-d it’s Follow Friday!

  5. Hi, I'm a new follower. Gotta agree re: zombies - I think geeks will be best prepared to deal with such a scenario. All those sci-fi movies, books, TV shows...we've been in training our whole lives!

  6. Hey - I'm a new follower from the Book Blogger Hop, glad to see some more sf/f fans out there!

  7. I would think Zombies would be quite scared to face the Queen of the Library. Right?

    I'm stopping by via the Hop. I hope you will visit my blog, Readerbuzz. I always follow back.
    And I am doing a monthly giveaway. This month: Anna and the French Kiss!

  8. Hi everyone, thanks for coming, hope you're having a nice weekend! I am all about the love for the genre fans among us.
