Book Blog Hop & Follow Friday - July 30, 2010

Book Blogger Hop



Join in on the fun! Click on the names of the hosts above to jump over to their blogs to sign up.

I really enjoy the fun of this and meeting new bloggers. I try to stop by and comment on the blogs. :) And I always stop back by here to reply in the comments to all visitors comments.

The Book Blog Hop has a great new twist to it... A question to answer to get to know each other a little better.

This week:

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

This is a hard question for me as I have picked up a few new-to-me authors this year.  I would have to say recently it would be Stacia Kane in Urban Fantasy, Celine Kiernan and Glenda Larke for Fantasy.  Although I could definitely add a few others to the list...if you would like me to. :)

If you are wondering what I read more of and blog about:
I enjoy reading Fantasy, Urban Fantasy, Paranormal, Science Fiction... just about anything in these areas, and I will read YA books in these areas as well (I just have been a little short on reading YA lately). I hope you take a look around and enjoy the reviews and meme's I do: Monday's Beginnings, Teaser Tuesday, Favorite Fictional Character, Balderdash, and Looking Forward Too... (new one up every Friday)

I am also starting a new Blog Book Discussion here with Robyn at The Bookoholic Zone.  We will be switching back and forth the discussion posts here on our blogs.  The first book we are reading is Mind Games by Carolyn Crane.  Please join in with us!  We just posted the first discussion Post on Thursday.  It's on the first 125 pages of the book, you can jump in with any and all thoughts whenever you would like.  Please stop by, we would love to hear your thoughts! Link to it is HERE.

I also have a great Celebration going on.
There are so many things to celebrate for me this time of year.  So Stop by and enter to win!  There are three prizes I am giving.  CLICK HERE.

Please leave a coment on any posts. I love getting comments and I do respond to them all.

Thank you for stopping by!

  4. Here from the Hop. My sister is also looking forward to Way of Kings - she's been praising Brandon Sanderson to me for quite some time now. I really need to actually pick up one of his books!

  8. Melissa, of course following you for a while now and have to say have not gotten my Stacia Kane fix yet but working on it! Fantasy would still have to be for me the wonderful books by J R R Tolkein as the best of the genre, read them as a kid and fell in love all over again when Hollyweird made the Trilogy movies....


    Have a good hoppy and a good weekend!

Sorry, got 106 spam comments in less than 24hrs. Had to turn on again.

I love comments! Please share your thoughts. I will respond here in the comments back to you.

I'll try again without word verification, but if Spammers get out of hand again I'll turn it back on.

Thank you for visiting!
