Question of the week:

Do you use a rating system for your reviews and if so, what is it and why?

Yes, I use letter grades, because they are easy to understand.  A’s are hard to get, and most books are in the B to C+ range. Why?  If I really hate a book, I usually don’t finish it – there are just too many other books out there to waste time on something that I don’t enjoy.  To get an A, a book really, really has to impress me and it has to be so good that I can’t put it down.  This makes me want to ask you something – should I post about the books that I don’t finish? Let me know in the comments :)

Question of the week:

How many blogs do you follow?

This is kind of like last week’s question.  I have no idea how many blogs I follow.  I subscribe to many, many Feedburner emails, and those are the blogs that I read when I’m drinking my morning coffee or taking a break.  I also use Twitter to find new blogs and posts to read.  Do I read every single post for all of those emails or all of those tweets?  No, I pick and chose.  Like my TBR pile, there are just too many blogs to follow them all!  What about you?

Question of the week:

How many books do you have on your ‘to be read shelf’?

I don’t have a ‘shelf,’ I have a room! And a half!  This question would be like trying to guess how many gumballs have been poured into a VW Bug.  Guess the number, win the car!  Who gets the gumballs?  I’d be the person who got the gumballs.  That is how many books I have in my TBR mountain!

Question of the week:

Do you listen to music when you read? If so, what are your favorite reading tunes?

I don’t listen to music when I read.  I am one of those people who needs quiet to concentrate.  When I do listen to music, I enjoy dance tunes.

Weekly Question – Who is your favorite new-to-you author so far this year? This is another tough question, because I have been reading so many new to me authors.  My favorites so far are Lauren Oliver (Before I Fall) Charlie Higson (The Enemy), and Lesley Hauge (Nomansland). I am eagerly waiting for another read from all of them!

It’s Friday, which means it’s time to find out about new book blog!  Blog Hop is a meme held every weekend and it is hosted by Jennifer at Crazy for Books.  It’s a great way meet new bloggers.  Jennifer added a question of the week so we can learn more about each other, and this week’s is:

This week’s question:  Tell us about some of your favorite authors and why they are your favorites!

This is a tough question, because I have so many authors that I love.  Diane Wynne Jones is a favorite, because of how seamlessly she blends magic into her settings.  Octavia Butler is another, because her books are so engrossing and really make me think.  I also enjoy Sherri S. Tepper, again because of how her books suck me into the stories and don’t let me put them down until I have finished the last page.  There are so many more that I’m not even mentioning!

Who are some of your favorites?
