Book Blogger Hop



I was surfing the internet earlier this week and found an interesting book blog called Crazy-for-Books. They host a weekly Book Blogger Hop which connects book bloggers together during the weekend. Thought I'd give it a shot :) Only catch - you must answer weekly questions! Here's this week's:

Who is your favourite new-to-you author so far this year?

A: Usually I'll find one author that I love and read all of their books. If I have time to read a book I want to make sure I'll enjoy it, so I go to my standbys of Sparks, Steel, Valenti, Rowling... However, a brand new author for me? I'd have to say Marina Nemat. I reviewed her memoir Prisoner of Tehran earlier this month. It was an awesome read - very powerful, moving, and overall enjoyable. I've been on a 'let's read memoirs' kick and her's has by-far been the best so far!

  6. Hello, new follower from the blog hop. It looks like you have some really interesting reviews up. A few I haven't heard of (was forced to read Orwell in school, I'm sure I did a report on it WAY back then:)

    Hope you'll swing by and check out my blog if you get a chance!

I love comments...
Almost as much as I love coffee.

All puns put aside, I really do adore the comments you ever-so-kindly post. Thank you for taking the time to stop by and leave a few words. I love hearing your view on the topic!
