Just for Fun: Harry Potter quiz – which book character are you?

I just took this quiz here and ended up with this result. I can live with that – Hermione is one of my favourite characters in Harry Potter (well, after Snape but I cannot imagine anyone would want to get him in one of these quizzes!).

TBR Challenge 2014

This challenge (hosted by the lovely folks at ♥!The Young Adult Book Club!♥ on Goodreads) is going to be one of the biggest personal challenges for me this year.

At the moment there is a grand total of 26 series, usually consisting of approximately five or so dolls per set. […]

Sweet Dreams Series

I do not tend to gravitate towards straight-up romance novels as a rule (though I must stress that I do read some now and again). I generally tend to prefer science fiction/fantasy, urban fantasy and paranormal. If I do read contemporary, it tends to be of the Young Adult variety.
