Book Blogger Hop #11


The Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jennifer at Crazy for Books  and is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love of the written word! I love taking part in the hop as I get to know more about other bloggers out there and to find a few new ones!


This week's question is –

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 love discovering new books most of all. Finding books I didn’t know about or that my local stores don’t stock and discovering a new series or author that interests me. Sometimes this is through reviews, author posts, giveaways and even memes. I love reading other people’s reviews and they do influence me but I’m always aware I’m not going to agree with everyone. Giveaways are great – after all who doesn’t love a free book? But I’m always careful to only enter giveaways for books I’m genuinely interested in – after if I do win I want to read it and not just have it sitting on a shelf. That’s not really fair on the people who really do want to win it! I love humour and passion in people’s blogs – that tends to be what makes me follow them – after all I blog because I love books and want to meet other people who feel the same way!

So what do you like most about reading book blogs?


  1. Its always fun to discover new authors and books!!! I hope you are having a great weekend so far!!

  2. I love it when a blogger puts some personality into the blog.

    Hope you have a fab. weekend!

  3. Hi! I'm a new follower. I love getting recommendations too. Before reading a book I like to know if others liked it. I don't like investing my time, energy, and money into something unless I think I will like it. Hope you have a great weekend :)
