Weekly Blog Hop II

Follow Friday is hosted over at Parajunkee's blog!

This week's question is: 

Who are You the Boy/Girl, instead of You the Blogger?

Well I'm Caitlin, I'm 21 and I'm in my final Semester of University in Liverpool. I study philosophy and I'm writing my dissertation on Kierkegaard, who was a Danish philosopher, sometimes referred to as the father of existentialism. I only started my blog about 3 weeks ago and I'm loving it! It's a great, almost productive way to procrastinate. I've found ALOT of new books through reading others blog's, which is why I started doing it in the first place-so that's great. Aside from reading I enjoy cookery shows (especially Masterchef) Criminal Minds and Grey's Anatomy. I've also recently gotten into Pretty Little Liars which I ADORE. I don't have any pets here at uni, but at home we have 4 cats and a puppy. I'm not sure what I want to do with my life yet, but when I figure it out, I'll let you know ;)

Book Blogger Hop

The weekly blog hop is hosted by Jennifer over at Crazy for Books and this week's question is: 

"If I gave you £50 ($80) right now and sent you into a bookshop, what would be in your basket?"

Okay, well I'm gonna work on the premise that a paperback is £6.99 as I think that's the average RRP and a hardback is 12.99, again cause I think that's the average RRP.

I'd get:

Haven by Kristi Cook (hardback)
Once a Witch Carolyn Macullough (paperback)
The Iron Thorn by Caitlin Kittredge (hardback)
The Balefire Omnibus by Cate Tiernan)
Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side by Beth Fantaskey (paperback)

Okay, that comes too £46.95

If the shop had a promotion one or more of the books was sliiiightly cheaper (sometimes they do hardbacks for £9.99 or less) or there was a 3 for 2 (usually is in Waterstones) I'd also get:

The Return: Midnight (The Vampire Diaries) by L.J Smith (paperback)

Yay so there we go! I wish someone really would give me £50 now =[

  11. Wow! What a great question this week. I always peek at other people's book piles at the checkout link at B&N. That doesn't make me a voyeur, does it?

    The exhibitionist in me has posted my own bookstore shopping list -- and it's not as predictable as you may think!

    Hop on over to my blog for all the suspense and chills of my TBR list -

    Happy Hop Friday!

  14. Hopping through. I'm impressed by your dissertation. I've heard of Kierkegaard but haven't studied him. I didn't realize he was associated with existentialism. I studied that a little in high school and college, so maybe I learned about Kierkegaard after all :-)
