Book Blogger Hop #1

Book Blogger Hop


I'm excited to be participating in this fabulous Hop for the very first time! This week's question is:

What are you reading now and why?

The book I am reading at the moment is Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games. The fact that I'm reading this book is a testimony to the power of book blogs - I would never pick it out based on its cover, nor would the blurb interest me enough. But people raved about it, so I decided to try it. And I am LOVING IT! I read about 100 pages last night and it kept me up until 3.30AM - after which I think I dreamed something scary from the novel. No, it's not for the faint of heart, but it's one of the best YA books I've ever had the pleasure of reading. Make sure you pick it up ASAP!

That's an amazing testimonial to the power of book blogs. I haven't read this one, and probably wouldn't pick it either...and that's the story of my choice today, too.

Here's MY HOP POST

Loved Hunger Games!

I'm bloghopping today, seeing what people are currently reading, befriending new blogs. I'm reading a children's book from New Zealand called Under the Mountain that is on the 1001 Children's Books You Must Read list. Excellent.

And I am your newest follower! Hope you will stop by my blog and say hello!

Thanks for reminding about the Blog Hop. I've heard a lot of good things about The Hunger Games. Enjoy it!

Terra Mae said...

Yeah the hunger Games was pretty intense. I had nightmares from the first book, and the second, Omg!!! You're going to be HOOKED!!! I can't wait to hear what you think. Are you on Twitter? Or am I blind and can't see it on your blog? LOL

Ah yes, the Disney post, my hubby is a Disney fanatic! Keeps us young, LOL

OOPS - I guess I really *do* need to post a link to my Twitter. But until then - it's @rblprince89 :)

Thanks for stopping by my blog!!

Good answer! The answer on my book blog is a little embarassing; it’s a book that’s been sitting on my TBR pile for a year.

To my shame, I only opened the book because I remember it contained an Amazon gift card.

Hop on over!

Just hopping by on the blog and welcome to your very first blog! Thanks for stopping by my site.

Hunger Games was one of my favorites last year and its an excellent reading choice. Enjoy the whole series (but the first is the best IMO).

Happy Reading!

Alison said...

Hopping through. New follower!
I didn't expect to like The Hunger Games since I don't like dystopia, but I couldn't put it down. And I like Catching Fire even more.

I personally think this is the best book in the trilogy ... it really hooks you and I never read anything quite like it before. It is pretty intense for a YA book isn't it? Have fun with it!

Talina Perkins said...

Interesting! After hearing your thoughts on the book, I'll have to try it out. I even have it sitting on my e-reader from when it was on sale.

Thanks for stopping in on the blog. I'm sorry I am late returning the follow. Yesterday was pamper-me day at the salon...*sigh* I am so happy you liked my blog design. It took a while to get it to where I like it. Hunky guys can always dress up a page!;-)

I'll definitely be back to check out your posts! Have a fabulous Sunday Nikola!
