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!
