Book Blogger Hop #7 / My Week In Review

September 17-20, 2010

Hosted by Jen at Crazy-For-Books

In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love of the written word! This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, 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 to read! (click the title)

This week's question is:  In honor of Book Blogger Appreciation Week, let's take time this week to honor our favorite book bloggers and why we love them!

Good gosh! To answer that would take forever because each week during the memes I take part in, I visit alot of blogs and I like them all. I can see me showing some here and waking up tomorrow thinking "Oh no I need to put this one in as well" So in my feeble attempt to answer this week's question, I'm going to share the four I make sure I visit at least 1-2 times a week.

Romance Book Junkies

I always make a point to visit Danielle's blog because even though I'm willing to explore other genres, as The Bookish Snob, romance will ALWAYS be my genre of choice. They're the books that I instantly gravitate to and so naturally the blogs that share my passion for it will be the ones I visit the most. It's pretty much guaranteed that I can go to her site and find a new read, a title I haven't heard of before or a review that sparks my interest and has me heading to Amazon to buy.


I love visiting Bella's blog because each time I do I feel this OVERWHELMING sense of relief. Like her, I'm obsessed with all things paranormal and I've read alot of what's out there. Before I started blogging I had a very real fear that sooner or later I'd run out of things to read (irrational I know) I love going to Bella's blog because she has an amazing list of upcoming books with some I haven't discovered yet. She posts great reviews on books I'm interested in and so I feel like it's my one stop spot to get my fix of paranormal :)

Heaven, Hell And Purgatory

I love going to Lyndsey's blog because we share the same deep, lustful obsession of all things Vance Mangum (the sexy bad boy from the Of Witches And Warlocks series) and we've been known to have some pretty crazy love fests and rants on Twitter. She's also in the process of making an incredible invention that I'm sure every book lover will buy - Man Dough. All you do is think of your book crush, mold his body out of the special dough and voila!! Book crush come to life :D Great blogger to follow !!

The Delusional Diaries

Besides the fact that in real life, Lacey and I are BFF's, I visit Lacey's blog because it's all her fault that I am obsessed with Vance Mangum which lead to my dream make out sessions with Matt Lanter. Yes Lacey, I blame you *giggle* She's the creator of Vance and author of one of my favorite YA paranormal romance series Of Witches And Warlocks (plug plug) and so many a day is spent in heated texting about writing, blogging and our shared romance obsession. Matt Lanter comes into it because he's the inspiration behind Vance and so it all kinda spills into each other and I find myself dreaming of the two of us in compromising positions (or at least that my story and I'm sticking to it) Most of all, it was Lacey who got me started on blogging, saying that I needed to share my excitement about what I read with others. I'm having so much fun with it so I'm grateful for the very subtle push she gave for me to start  (she created my site THEN came to me and said "Ok I already set you so started blogging") Thanks :D
