Book Blogger Hop Oct. 8-11


The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Jennifer @ Crazy-for-Books. It's a chance for book bloggers to interact, make new friends, and most importantly, share their love of books!

This week's question is:

What's your favorite beverage while reading or blogging, if any? Is it tea, coffee, water, a glass of wine, or something else?


It depends on my mood, really. I'm not as big on caffeine as I once was and recently switched to strictly tea beverages. So if I want a kick in the morning, I'll grab a cup of tea. Or if it's cold while I'm reading/blogging. But other than that, just normal, plain ole water for me!

Oh, also, I have this strange affinity for drinking cold Very Vanilla Soymilk while I write reviews. I didn't actually think of it until now (since I'm in the middle of writing one!), but I can't write a review without it! If I had anything to thank for inspiration for my reviews, it'd be a nice cold glass of Very Vanilla Soymilk! :)





While you guys are here, check out a guest post by Raven Corinn Carluk!

I've never had Silk. It's interesting how people develop habits like that without really noticing. Have a great weekend!

Happy HOP!! It's so funny you drink soy milk because I have such an aversion to it. I'm a little hesitant about sharing it BUT I can tell you it involves a very cute little lactose intolerant baby that could only drink soy who whenever they did their "business" would smell like the milk. Ugh I wanna gag as I type it. I should try it though, maybe hold my nose while I do it. Who knows it'll probably be my fave drink :)Anyway hope you have a fun fun fun weekend . thanks for stopping by.

Thanks for stopping by!! :) I do like vanilla soy milk every once in a while, but mostly stick to regular "moo juice", as my friend calls it, hehe.

Also, love the name of your blog! Om nom nom!

I sometimes drink Orange Juice Flavored Soy Milk - It's juice and it's milk! - 'cause I don't really like the taste of milk except when I'm in the mood for it, so my mom started giving me ojfsm so I would get some calcium everyday. It's not bad, actually.

:D

Happy Book Blog Hop!

Mmm, I think that might be the one and only soy milk (or rice milk, or almond milk, or you name it that's not actually milk milk) that I have yet to try. VERY vanilla's gotta be delish though! Happy hopping :)

Karen said...

I haven't tried that flavor soy milk but now I must :-)
I can't drink and blog - I'm afraid I'll spill my drink and fry the computer. Which is highly likely with my cat crawling around the desk while I'm typing.

Thanks for hopping by!

Well, have a great weekend!

Hi, thanks for hopping by my blog! Now following you as well :) I enjoyed your review of Hex Hall - I can see why you'd keep picking up the book upside down, lol.

I love Silk! Especially with some Kahlua thrown in!!! =)

Happy Reading!

Literature for Lunch said...

You know me :) I am already a devoted follower and love your blog!

I have never had soy milk before. I will have to try it sometime. I am a diet coke devotee! I need to rid myself of the addiction though.

Have a great weekend!

Mariam Maarouf said...

Thanks for hopping by my blog! I'm glad you did; otherwise, I wouldn't have been introduced to yours (the chances weren't good anyway - did you SEE that hop linky list?)

Anyway, have a great weekend.

Kristina Barnes♥ said...

@Belinda: Wow! I’ve never smelled a baby’s business after drinking soy. I don’t think I want to now! =s

@Phantom: Thanks for the follow! =D I like ‘em both – plain and soy! Best of both worlds!

@Misha: Thanks for stopping by! <3

@Emily: Haha, moo juice! That’s great! Thanks! Om nom nom! <3

@Suko: Thank you! =) It was just my evil plot to subliminally advertise Very Vanilla Soymilk at you guys!

@Kelly: Hi, you’re welcome! Thank you – I’m partial to my blog name too (although I might be biased!).

@AnimeGirl: Whooa whoa whoa, Orange Juice Flavored Soy Milk?! That sounds disgusting, but I want to try it now, haha! I’ll let you know what I think when I try it!

@Anna: Oh? You definitely have to try Very Vanilla! The VERY vanilla flavor is designed for kids so they’ll enjoy drinking it while reaping the calcium benefits. :) I actually discovered it from my ex-boyfriend’s nephew who was lactose intolerant, but hated milk, so they bought him this and I used to steal drinks from the carton all the time! xD

@Karen: Oh definitely do try it! I recommend! <3 I’m afraid of spills, too. I have two buttons that I took off my laptop because I spilled mountain dew and they got too sticky. =(

@Pris: Hi Pris! Thanks for stopping by! :)

@Natalie: Thanks for stopping by, as well! =)

@Allison: Thank you! I looovelovelove Tamora Pierce!

@Izzy: Thank you! :D My friend made it for me! Cherry soda is delish!

@Kate: Thank you! =)

@Steph: Thanks for stopping by!

@Mari: Thank you as well! I’ve never actually had rice milk, surprisingly! =P

@Danya: Thanks for the follow and the compliment! It was so bad, I’d pick the book up and try to read, then realize the words were upside down! It was bizarre. xD They probably did that on purpose, haha!

@It’s a Book Thing: Thank you!

@Avid Book Reader: LOL!!! I have to agree! I’ll take Kahlua in silk any day! =P

@Jennifer: Aw yay, I know! =) I love yours as well! =) You should definitely try it! I was totally averse to the idea of soy milk before, but then I tried it and I’ve been hooked ever since!

@Mariam: Thanks! And oh gosh, I know. I try getting through the hop linky list but it’s GINORMOUS. I can barely scratch 50 off the list!

BookQuoter said...

Natalie (Mindful Musings) said...

Hey Kristina! I actually really like vanilla soymilk! I don't drink it often, but my mother went on a health kick a few years ago, and we ended up drinking a lot of it!

Thanks for stopping by! :)

Brenda said...

Thank you for dropping by my blog, I have never had soymilk, i really don't care for milk at all. Thank you for the follow, I am now following you back, have an awesome weekend! WV Stitcher

Stephany said...

Hey, thanks for stopping by my blog! :) I've returned the follow.
That is so funny with your Very Vanilla Soymilk. I've never even heard of that xD You should try writing without it and post what happens...that would be quite interesting. ;)

pussreboots said...

I've never tried soy milk of any flavor. Happy weekend. I don't drink while reading or blogging.

firepages said...

I've never had soymilk before, but I hear it is very good. Quite a unique answer. I stay away from liquids while reading e-books on my computer. I am way too clumsy to take a chance like that! Have a great weekend.

Kristen said...

oh thanx for following! I appreciate it and thanx for stopping by I am following in return to show the love!! Obviously lol
