In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop is a placejust for book bloggers and readers to connect and find new book-related blogs that we may be missing out on! This weekly BOOK PARTY (held by Crazy For Books) 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 that they may not know existed! 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.
If you start following someone through the Hop, leave a comment on their blog to let them know! Stop back during the week to see other blogs that are added! And, most importantly, the idea is to HAVE FUN!!
The Hop isn't just for you to throw your link in there and not visit any other blogs. It's all about networking and finding new blogs that are of interest. So, in the spirit of the Hop, try to make some time to visit other blogs and don't post your link if you are not planning on visiting other blogs in the Hop that week. This is a weekly event, so if you don't have time this week, that's fine! We'll see you next week!
If you sign Linky, please share the love and POST ABOUT THE HOP ON YOUR BLOG! How else will anyone else find out about it and come join the party?
This is my second week doing the Book Blog Hop, and I'm super excited to find new blogs, friends, and followers. Happy Hopping to you all!! Here's this week's question!
This week's question: Tell us about some of your favorite authors and why they are your favorites!
That is always a tough one to answer. One of my favorite authors is Ellen Hopkins, author of Crank, Glass, Identical, Burned, and so many more. She is a phenomenal writer, and I love the way her words are formatted visually to match what words she is using. It's like one long, beautiful poem-painting. Plus the way she writes about topics that are so touchy - I give her so much respect for being able to write about her daughter's expriences with drugs.
Another favorite author is Scott Westerfeld. He has authored the Uglies/Pretties/Specials/Extras series superbly. They were quick reads, but still deep; the characters are people, not words on a page; and most of all his plot line is seriously fun. He keeps you guessing at all times. I have also read some of his other books and love them as well.
There are so many more authors out there I love, and so many new ones I'm finding. I keep my TBR list full of new names. Happy Reading and Happy Hopping!!
