Book Blogger Hop and Follow Friday January 7 – 9

While you’re hopping through, please take a look at my current contests!! This week I am giving away a copy of The Witchy Worries of Abbie Adams by Rhonda Hayter, and a signed copy of The Lost Saint by Bree Despain! Click here for your chance to win!

It’s Friday! Time to discover new blogs to follow!   Blog Hop is a meme held every weekend and it is hosted by Jennifer at Crazy for Books.  It’s a great way to find book blogs that you might now know about.

Question of the Week:

"What book influenced or changed your life? How did it influence/change you?"

Here is the story of why I have horses, and it relates directly to a book I read.  I have always loved horses, but never had the opportunity to learn how to ride.  After I read a regency romance about a horse trainer, I started dreaming, once again, of learning to ride.  I mentioned this to my BF, and told him that one day I would go riding through a field on my very own horse.  Dean must really love me, because he looked me straight in the eye and said, “You have been talking about this for years.  You are not getting any younger.  Your bones are not getting any stronger.  I think that if you really want to do this,  you need to do it now.”  LOL!  I called about taking lessons the next day! 

That was six years ago.  What book had I just finished reading?  Taming Tessa by Brenda Hiatt.  Thanks, Brenda, for giving me the kick in the pants that I needed.

Rachel from Parajunkee is hosting Follow Friday, which is another fun way to meet new bloggers.  Check out Parajunkee’s blog here.

 

Question of the week:

What book(s) have you discovered lately from someone’s book blog?

Oh, gosh, there are so many that I can’t even list them all!  I love Waiting On Wednesday, and usually hop through a bunch of blogs to see what books are on everyone’s radar.  I also love reading reviews of books that I normally would not read.   If it wasn’t for visiting other blogs, I never would have read The Enemy by Charlie Higson  or most of the dystopian books that I read last year.  I didn’t normally read books in those genres, but now they are among my favorite!

If you are visiting from the Blog Hop, please leave a comment so I can stop by your blog to say hi!
