Blog Hop (15) & Follow Friday (15)

The Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Crazy for Books and every week we get a question. This week's is:
"Since today is April Fool's Day in the USA, what is the best prank you have ever played on someone OR that someone has played on you?"
My answer: This one's tough. I'm not the prankster type, but I've had some epic pranks pulled on me over the years by my older (and younger) brothers. I'd probably have to go with the time my oldest brother forged my report card at the end of 8th grade and put that I'd gotten all D's. I freaked out so bad that he actually told me before I had it figured out. It seemed horrible then, but really it was hilarious, especially since he's signed his own name at the bottom. I was just too freaked out to notice the first time.
Follow My Book Blog Friday is hosted by Parajukee's View and it also has a weekly question. This week's: 
"What is the book that you really don't want to admit to loving?"
 My answer: Probably the Vampire Academy series. Not because it's a bad series at all, just because the name sounds so lame. Vampires have a bad rep, and Vampire Academy sounds like the epitome of those bad reputations.
Make sure to leave links in the comments so I can check out y'alls blogs. Happy reading.

Brothers are the worst for pranks always!

DJL said...

That sounds just like something brothers would do. Check out what my college roommate did to me!

Ahhh blessing and curse of an older brother. I have one too. Their pranks really aren't funny at the time, but years later it's fun to laugh with them about what they used to do.

New follower through follow friday! Here's my FF & BBH!

That's seriously a great prank! Man, your brother is smart, haha. I only have a little brother and thankfully, he doesn't prank. What he does do though is tickling. I'd rather be pranked on than tickled.

Hopping through. That prank was pretty fun. Your brother must have been creative!

Lori said...

I think April Fool day can be fun as long as someone didn't get hurt mentally or physically. Wanna know what happened to me? Check outMy Answer for this weeks Blogger Hop.

Ok, that was a pretty awesome prank. Not really for you, but it was pretty funny.
I love Vampire Academy: even with the whole vampire thing...
Have a great weekend!

Alexis @ Reflections of a Bookaholic said...

I hate being pranked. I hardly ever think it is funny.

Elizabeth said...

Oh my...those brothers do some wild things at times. I know my youngest brother sure does.

I am stopping by from the blog hop.

Hope you have a fun blog hop.

Stop by my blog if you like to see my answer.

At first I wasn't going to participate in this week's Book Blogger Hop. I'm not even sure why.

But here I am. And I'm glad! To dispel any false impressions people may have had about me being a old, stodgy fuddy-duddy I'm happy to share some of my very best pranks with you.

Highlights include - low-grade explosives, eggs and salt shakers. Get all the side-splitting details over on my blog -

They date back to my younger years as a Brooklyn boy which brings about some introspection.

I'm going to go pull some pranks today. Look out world! I'm coming out of prankster retirement!
