Book Blogger Hop & Follow Friday (2)

Book Blogger Hop


Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Jennifer at Crazy-for-Books. 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 visit Crazy-for-Books to 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 there!

This week's question:

"Highlight one book you have received this week (for review, from the library, purchased at the store, etc.) that you can’t wait to dig into!"

I've actually already started reading this book - it's Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma. This book deals with some difficult subject matters, but so far it is excellently written and very moving. The other new book that I've bought is Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier.





Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee and Allison Can Read. Visit either of their blogs for complete rules of the following fun!

This week's question:

"Let's step away from books for a second and get personal. What T-Shirt slogan best describes you?"

I might be taking the easy way out here, but at BEA and ALA Sourcebooks had t-shirts that said "Authors are my rockstars." The other option would be one that many musicians have: "I can't, I have rehearsal." Chances are that I'm either in a practice room or reading, so both of these would fit perfectly!



What are your answers? Please leave a comment or a link to your blog!

  1. I love the "Authors are my rockstars." I always tell my husband book signings are like rock concerts for nerds.

  18. I love your slogans, especially "Authors are my rockstars", because I would be more psyched to meet my favorite author than most movie/music stars. I already read Forbidden; I was surprised at how much I loved that book! It made me cry at least once.

  20. I loved this week’s question! I’ve made so many friends in the book blog world and am really impressed with so many blogs it was hard to hunker down and make a choice.

    But I did it! I’m shining the spotlight on a Jersey girl! Hop on over to my blog at http://www.howardsherman.net to find out who she is and discover her amazing book blog.
