Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Crazy-for-Books. It is a great way to connect with other book lovers and bloggers! The Hop lasts from Friday till Monday, so there is plenty of time to participate. To join in, post the Hop and weekly question to your blog, add your name to the Linky list, and start HOPPING through it!
Q: How many books are currently in your To-Be-Read (TBR) pile?
General answer? TOOoooooo many....there's not enough hours in the day, week, month, or year to get caught up on all that I want to read. If you want to be literal about it, according to my Goodreads.com account that is fairly updated: 475. NOW, granted, this does include books that I read years and years ago that I want to re-read. I usually take new books over those usually and figure that I'll get back to others (Yeah, right. Reference second sentence of this paragraph. LOL).
Follow Friday is also a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee. It's another way to connect with fellow bloggers! First, blog about Follow Friday and weekly question, then leave your name on the Linky list, and visit as many blogs as you can on the list and tell them "Hi!" in their comments on their FF post. You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you!
Q. Genre Wars! What's your favorite genre and which book in that genre made it your favorite?
Wow, way to make it a toughie! I love so many, it's really hard to decide on a single one. If I had to list a few top choices it would be paranormal, steampunk urban fantasy, or dystopian YA. I used to be really deep into adult romance of all kinds, especially historical. Buuuttttt....then I decided to finish my Bachelor's. For some reason I couldn't wrap my mind around a lot of the books that came out in that. I was griping about that very thing in class one day and a friend recommended I look into YA. She said that maybe all I needed was something different since school had probably "messed with my head." (Yeah, we college students with great vocabularies, right?) She loaned me her copy of Marked by P.C. & Kristin Cast and the rest, as they say, is history. In YA in general, I found that my mind is put at ease when I read them. I now enjoy reading more now, and I honestly did not think that was possible!
