While you’re hopping through, please take a look at my current contests!! Everyone needs more books, right??
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 is the thing you like most about reading book blogs? Is it the reviews, author guest posts, articles, giveaways, or something else entirely?"
I like reviews, cover reveals, and publishing news the best, because they expose me to books that I probably wouldn’t look at twice. Interviews are fun as well, and, hey, who is going to complain about an awesome contest or two?
Parajunkee is hosting Follow Friday, which is another fun way to meet new bloggers. Check out Parajunkee’s blog here. If you are visiting from the Blog Hop, please leave a comment so I can stop by your blog to say hi!
Question of the week:
Do you have an under-noticed author that you think we should all know about?
I have several, but I’ll stick with just two. Octavia Butler writes compelling, thought provoking science fiction, and I have loved every book that I have read. Pick up Mind of My Mind for a gripping read about a young woman who refuses to let someone use her for his own gain. I’ve read it about four times now, and have enjoyed it every time.
Diana Wynne Jones is another author who doesn’t get the credit she deserves. She was writing fun children’s fantasy novels long before Harry Potter made his ballyhooed appearance, and her books are full of wit and suspense, with very sympathetic characters. I highly recommend picking up The Chronicles of Chrestomanci!
