Book Blogger Hop & Follow Friday

I am so tired – I have been working nearly all week! Tuesday until today… and an extra hour today… Luckily when I get my pay today I will have enough to buy an iPod touch, after working all summer so far!


In the spirit of the Friday Follow, I thought it would be cool to do a Book Blogger Hop to give us all bookies a chance to connect and find new blogs that we may be missing out on!  So, I created this weekly BOOK PARTY where book bloggers and readers can connect to find new blogs to read, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books!  It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs that they may not know existed!  So, grab the logo, post about the Hop on your blog, and start PARTYING!!

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

That’s quite hard.. but I think it has to be Ally Carter. Luisa from Chicklish gave me a copy of I’d Tell I Love You, But Then I’d Have To Kill You, and I absolutely loved it! I’ve pre-ordered Cross My Heart And Hope To Spy from Amazon UK, and I can’t wait for it to arrive 😀

If you are here because of the Book Blogger Hop, please make yourself known!

I will try and reply to your comment and visit your blog as soon as I can

I am also taking part in Follow my Book Blog Friday! So if you stumble across my blog via there, please stop by to comment and say hi! Much appreciated 🙂

Teaser Tuesdays

Welcome to my first Teaser Tuesday!

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

I am currently reading The Avenger by P.C. Cast.

“I’m not a child.

I know better than to step into the den of the big bad wolf.”

~ pg 112, “The Avenger” by P.C. Cast
