Friday Hops and some changes!

IT'S FRIDAY! \o/ So today is day of:

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee's View and this week's question was made by Nakesha of Totally Obsessed! The question is:

Share your current fav television show! Tell us a bit about it...

Well, I've lots of favorite shows, but lately I've been watching a lot of Bones, while I'm waiting for the second half of the second season of Make It or Break It on March 28th (And the next day it's Lover Unleashed release day! It's going to be a great week!)

The premise of the show is based on an unlikely alliance between forensic anthropologist Dr. Temperance "Bones" Brennan and FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth. Brennan is the central character and team leader of the fictional Jeffersonian Institute Forensic Sciences Department. The show revolves around solving Federal legal cases by examining the human remains of potential murder victims. Dr. Brennan and her team provide scientific expertise and Special Agent Booth's perspective the FBI's criminal investigation techniques. In addition to the prospective murder cases featured in each episode; the series explores the backgrounds and relationships of its recurrent characters. The series is also known for its dark comedic undertones to, in essence, lighten the gravity of the show's intense subject matter.

Kaylie Cruz (Josie Loren), Payson Keeler (Ayla Kell) and Lauren Tanner (Cassie Scerbo) strive in the world of gymnastics, training at one of the best gyms in the country, the (fictional) "The Rock" in Boulder, Colorado. But drama hits The Rock when Emily Kmetko (Chelsea Hobbs) abruptly joins and takes Lauren's long-standing third place ranking. In the middle of the season, the girls become friends and continue their dreams to become future Olympians. Lauren strives to come out on top, but that title is given to Kaylie, who becomes the national champion when a bad fall on the uneven bars leaves Payson with a fractured spine and the diagnosis that she will never do gymnastics again.
As season 2 starts, Payson has the opportunity to undergo a cutting-edge surgery to fix her spine. The operation is successful, but it becomes clear that she will never be the same gymnast she used to be. Sasha Belov (Neil Jackson) advises her to become a more artistic gymnast, rather than the power gymnast she once was. Payson is initially opposed to the idea, but slowly comes around. After Sasha takes her to the ballet, she finds her inner grace and is determined to succeed. She develops a very close relationship with Sasha. The other three girls are very competitive as well and when Lauren gets together with Kaylie's old boyfriend, their friendships once again suffer. 
Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jennifer of Crazy-for-Books and the question of this week is:

 "Do you ever wish you would have named your blog something different?"

The first name of this blog wasn't "A Book and a Cupcake", but after I named it that, I won't change for nothing :D

Well, you saw the new comment system, right? I changed it, because I would like to reply the comments that are left here, without having to make the blog look like a twitter. So, tell me what you think!  And besides that, I'm writing my review policy, my review ratings and my contact info -finally!-, so wait a little bit more! :D
Ah! Come back later to see my review of "How to Ruin a Summer Vacation" by Simone Elkeles!
