Book Blogger Hop is hosted by the wonderful Jennifer from Crazy For Books and Follow Friday is hosted by two great bloggers Parajunkee's View and Alison of Alison Can Read So starting with The Book Blogger Hop: This weeks question comes from Steph at The Fake Steph Question: Is there a book series that you’re not totally into, but still keep buying new releases because you love the covers? Answer: Oh definitely. I hate to admit it but it would have to be the Fallen series by Lauren Kate and The Soul Screamers series by Rachel Vincent. I have read book 1 in both series' and I just cannot seem to get myself to continue reading but I adore the covers so I keep purchasing them. Hm.. maybe I should give these guys another chance? Follow Friday:
Questions: Do you mind books with similar ideas to other books? Similar concepts, backgrounds, retellings or pulled-to-publish fanfic?
Answer: To be honest with you know I don't. I think it's great the way an author can take a classic idea and make it all their own. Take Cinder by Marissa Meyer for example. I absolutely loved that book. She took such a classic story and put the most modern twist to it.
To join the fun and make new book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:
Put your Blog name & URL in the Linky thing. You can also grab the code if you would like to insert it into your posts.
Grab the button up there and place it in a post, this post is for people to find a place to say “hi” in your comments and that they are now following you.
If you are using WordPress or another CMS that doesn’t have GFC (Google Friends Connect) state in your posts how you would like to be followed
Follow Follow Follow as many as you can, as many as you want, or just follow a few. The whole point is to make new friends and find new blogs. Also, don’t just follow, comment and say hi. Another blogger might not know you are a new follower if you don’t say “HI”
If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the Love…and the followers
If you’re new to the follow friday hop, comment and let me know, so I can stop by and check out your blog.
