Book Blogger Hop & Follow Friday - July 2, 2010

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.

Starting this week 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:

Your Name And Why You Started Blogging...

Hello! My name is Melissa. :) Why did I start blogging... that is a tough question.  I started reading blogs of online friends I had from at Barnes n Nobles forum/discussion threads.  It looked like great fun to do.  So I started blogging and reviewing books.  It was a way for me to keep track of my thoughts on books and enjoy sharing my unique finds with many great people.  It's hard to believe how much it can grow and change for you.  I am still enjoying what I read and blogging about them.  I enjoy the discussions on the books and chatting with such kind people. :)

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...

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

Thank you for stopping by!

I also invite you to visit the Interview and GIVEAWAY posted, with Nicole Peeler author of Tempest Rising and newly released (July 1st) Tracking the Tempest.  Their are lots of chances for extra entries to win a copy of Tracking the TempestClick here.

With this being a holiday weekend here in the US, I will be popping in and visiting off and on with the visiting we do.  But Monday will be my biggest day to make my rounds.  So please leave a comment and I will visit you back. :)  Have a great weekend and fun time hopping.
