Lovin' los libros

A book blog dedicated to young adult and new adult novels

Feature and Follow Friday #3

By 8:58 AM

 

The Feature & Follow is a weekly event that allows bloggers to get to know each other, and gain more followers! It is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.

Q: Activity! Hopefully warm weather for most of us is here soon…so tell us about your favorite outdoor reading spot. Or take a picture.

I would LOVE to read outside... if there were no such thing as bees. I am pretty afraid of them, since I've never been stung. Since I  just got a comfy new couch and loveseat, this has been my favorite place to read. And I will open the front door and the screen and let the breeze flow in.
 
My mom and I have started doing an annual trip to Panama City Beach, FL and we stay at the same condo every time. This pool is where I do most of my outdoor reading.


 
What about you guys? Are you an indoor person like me or can you brave the bees?! :)
 
If you are a new follower, please make sure you let me know so I can follow you back! Also, I just got started a new Twitter account for my blog and would love for you guys to follow me on there! (So I'm not tweeting to myself!)

  2. That looks like a really comfy couch! I wish we had one of those. The couches here aren't comfy at all. -.-
    And reading beside the pool is always nice! :D Btw I'm scared of bees too so there's a lot of screaming going on when I read outside in the summer. lol. :P

  6. I hate bees as well. We don't have a lot of flowers in the garden, so we don't have a lot of them. Thank goodness. :)

    1. You are so lucky. I feel like they are everywhere where I live. My old apartment complex was the worst. I used to run inside to avoid them!

    1. :) I prefer to read indoors, especially in the Tennessee summer heat. But on the beach, the weather is perfect for poolside reading. Thanks for stopping by and following back!

  16. Ooh both sound lovely! I like the indoors myself. St. Louis, where I live, can get too hot and humid and that's just gross. I prefer our fall and winter, but those aren't really ideal for sitting outside for too long either, but they are more bearable for me at least!

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  20. Wow, what a gorgeous poolside reading spot!

    I'm pretty scared of bees, not because I've never gotten stung but because that's one of my worst memories from childhood... Though since then, I've found that if I avoid accidentally smooshing them with my thumb, they tend to not bother me much. Oops!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! Followed back via GFC, Twitter, and RSS. :)

    1. Oh no! I don't know how I haven't been stung to be honest. I am not rational when it comes to bees. I flail and scream and run away. LOL. Thanks for stopping by and following!

    1. LOL. I don't get as much reading done as I'd like. I usually end up reading for a bit and then when it gets too hot I have to get in the water and then wait to dry off a little before picking the Nook back up. Thanks for stopping by and following!

Or at least so far. :) Thanks for following via GFC and for the blog compliment! I have been constantly tweaking to make it look like I want it to!

  30. Your couch looks so comfy! :)

    Come on over to the Philippines and visit Boracay (or our other beautiful beaches). We get lots of foreigners, and there are some who stay in Boracay permanently!

    Thanks for visiting :)
