It's the weekend! Follow Friday & Book Blogger Hop time.

Book Blogger Hop

I missed the fun last week, I was meant to be away but came down with flu so spent most of last weekend resting up in bed. Normal service is now resumed though, so here are this week's questions for my two fave memes.

On the hop, hosted by Jennifer at crazy-for-books.com the question is:

 "Who's your all-time favorite book villain?"
The first villain who sprung to mind for me was Hannibal Lecter, of Silence of the Lambs and Hannibal fame. He is just so creepy and evil, with such a cool facade and some of the best lines. I was quite young when I read the first two Thomas Harris books that feature him so I guess he made an even bigger impression!

No question yet at parajunkee.com, so I'll be back to that later! EDIT - Here we are:

What embarassing thing have you done on cold medicine?

I can't think of anything bad on cold meds but remember when I was still at school I'd torn something in my shoulder and was given some meds for pain relief. Problem was they kept making me fall asleep. As if that wasn't embarassing enough after it happened a couple of times in class my tutor took me to one side for a talk, asking me if I was taking illegal substances.

I hope you have time to look around my blog while you're here and please take a look at my latest author Q&A with Stephen Harper. Have a great weekend everyone

"Taking illegal substances" hehe that's great! I would have to agree cold meds don't do anything for me but make me sleep.

I did try to go to work when I was sick one time and I thought I was taking non-drowsy cough syrup. Needless to say I was mistaken and got to work and fell straight to sleep. Normally, I'm told I'm not a snore-er but I guess because I was sick and tired I was snoring really loud. My boss told me to go home and they joked about it forever!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. :) I'm a new follower too!

My favorite book villain is, hands down, is the Napoleon of crime -
Professor James Moriarty.

It took me less than ten seconds to come up with my answer. But you'll
never guess why.
