Book Blogger Hop

Jen from Crazy for Books hosts the Book Blogger Hop every week.  It's a great way to discover new fellow book bloggers.  She's changed the rules a bit, so I'm going to just copy and paste them.  I don't want to mess them up. ;-)


In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love of the written word! This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books! It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs to read! So, grab the logo, post about the Hop on your blog, and start HOPPING through the list of blogs that are posted in the Linky list below!!

The Hop lasts Friday-Monday every week, so if you don't have time to Hop today, come back later and join the fun! This is a weekly event! And stop back throughout the weekend to see all the new blogs that are added! We get over 200 links every week!!

Your blog should have content related to books, including, but not limited to book reviews.


1. Enter your book blog link in the Linky List below

In your link, please state the main genre that you review: eclectic, contemp. fiction, ya, paranormal, mystery, non-fiction, etc. Please do not list every genre you review - if you are review a variety, please put eclectic! The Hop gets jumbled up if the title is too long, so please limit to one genre. I will be limiting the number of characters in the title to ensure the Hop doesn't look messy! Thank you!

Example: Crazy-for-Books (literary fiction)

2. Post about the Hop on your blog. Spread the word about the book party! The more the merrier! In your blog post, answer the following question (new question each week!). I have to thank my friend, Lori, for this week's question! I was drawing a blank and she came up with this fab question! If you have a question that could be used in a future Hop, leave it in the comments! Thanks!

Who is your favorite new-to-you author so far this year?

2. Visit other blogs in the Linky List! Make new friends! Follow new book bloggers! Talk about books! Rave about authors! Take the time to make a quality visit! Check out other posts and content, make a new friend! Don't randomly follow someone if you never intend on actually following them! No spamming please! (Please do not leave your link and not visit other blogs - it's just not cool and not in the spirit of the Hop!)

My answer to this week's question about my favorite new-to-me author so far this year is Elizabeth Scott.  I read her book, Living Dead Girl, and loved it.  I haven't read any of her other books, but I'm definitely looking forward to doing so.

After I browse some of the other blogs participating in the hop, I'm going to pick one to showcase in a post.  I can't wait to check out all of the awesome blogs!


  1. Just popping in via the hop to say hi! I see you're addicted to the Sookie Stackhouse books, I'm a big fan of that series and of course True Blood:) Glad to have found your blog and I look forward to being a new follower of yours!

  2. Hi, just stopping by through the hop! I haven't read lots by Elizabeth Scott but I did enjoy Stealing Heaven :)
