This is so good! The mice are just so cute and the end gave me a giggle. The hobbits and Gandalf are all mice while the orcs are rats and Sauron is a creepy owl.

“In a dark subway tunnel, a group of mice find a gold ring-pull that seems to have a mysterious effect on one of them. Not so far from them, an owl and his enslaved rats are watching. The owl sends his rats to get hold of this strange object…”

The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer from Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the meme on February 15, 2013.
Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end on Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.
August 24th – 30th – Where do you post your reviews besides your blog? Please list them all so perhaps we can find some new sites. (submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver’s Reviews)
I’m visiting my family for the next week or so and scrambled to get some content ready to go up while I’m away. So we have a few tags to enjoy 😉
I both hate and love tags, they make it so easy to create content but because it’s so easy it feels lazy and like the content doesn’t have much value. They have really helped me get used to creating content though. They’re like training wheels. And of course, they do have value, I really enjoy reading the tags that other people post…. so I guess I should just chill out about it!
This is the 25 Foodie Questions tag. Enjoy 🙂
What’s your favourite breakfast?
I’m not a big fan of breakfast foods they tend to give me an upset stomach. Usually, I just won’t eat in the morning and then have my lunch around 12.
How do you drink your coffee?
Black with a spoon of sugar. Simple 🙂 When I have coffee out I usually get a cappuccino but lately since it’s been so warm I’ve been having iced mochas which are freaking delicious!
What’s on your favourite sandwich?
I don’t usually eat sandwichs cause bread doesn’t really get along with me but when I do I usually go for an egg salad sandwich.
Soup or Salad?
Soup unless it’s hot out then I’d have a salad.
What’s your favourite cookbook?
Cornucopia cookbook from the restaurant in Dublin. Every recipe I’ve made from it has been delicious and it’s a very informative cookbook. It’s full of little tips about cooking and explains the reasons for doing certain things like sweating veg.
No more sweets or no more hearty foods?
I would be perfectly fine with never eating sweets again.
What’s your favourite Cuisine?
Probably Italian. Pizza and pasta are just so easy to make and taste great.
What’s your favourite food movie?
Chef was really good. The only other foodie movie I can think of is Ratatouille which I didn’t really like because I hate rats.
What’s your most guilty pleasure?
I’m going to go with take away pizza. It is so so bad for me but I love it!
What’s your greatest inspiration source?
My cookbooks. I often spend ages looking through them and planning out meals.
Cooking at home or going out for dinner?
I love both! Cooking at home can be more enjoyable cause I actually find the cooking part fun too. The clean up afterwards though is not.
Jennifer Estep posted on her Facebook recently about this female-authored fantasy flowchart on Reddit. She discovered it on Smart Bitches, Trashy Books which is a very fun site you should check out if you’re into romance.
I have read 6 of the authors mentioned. Looks like I have some reading to do? Who have you read?
