A Very Big Welcome

Welcome to any visitors who got here through the weekly Book Hop (a Book Party) organised by Jennifer @ Crazy for Books or Follow A Book Blog Friday hosted by Parajunkee's View so that book bloggers can share their blog with other book lovers and also find new blogs to 'follow.' To get involved all you have to do is post your blog link at the bottom of the 'linky list' on Crazy For Books and/or Parajunkee's View, answer the weekly question (for the hop) on your blog and get hopping around and following all the blogs!

This weeks Book Hop question/topic is: In honour of Book Blogger Appreciation Week, let's take time this week to honour our favourite book bloggers and why we love them.
My answer:

There are so many fantastic blogs that I read regularly but my reading tastes can be often quite different to a lot of blogs so I am going to mention some that are my favourites because they have similar tastes.

A Tapestry of Words- Danya from ATOW is always dropping comments here that make me smile and she has gave me my first blog award, The Versatile Blogger. We started blogging around the same time so it has been nice to see her blog grow in content and readers. She reviews a variety of genres on her blog from YA to adult fiction and my favourite feature of hers is called Forget Me Not, which spotlights books she loved from her childhood.

Bookalicious Ramblings- This was the first book blog that I discovered when searching for a review on the Internet. At that point I had already set up a blog for reviews but had abbandoned it because I didn't know what to do but I got started again thanks to discovering BR. Her blog design is just gorgeous, I think it is just about my favourite and inspired me to make my design prettier. I emailed her at the start asking if she could review Fallen Grace by Mary Hooper on her blog because I love the way she writes her reviews and she asked me if I had reviewed it. I hadn't but she visited my blog and commented on my first posts, it was a real encouragement for me.

Rebecca's Book Blog- Rebecca's blog was the first I found that reviewed a lot of YA historical fiction like me and I was very excited. I went through a lot of her old posts, frantically adding a lot of books to my TBR list. Thank you Rebecca! She is holding a giveaway of The Queen's Daughter by Susan Coventry currently so you might want to visit to enter.

Others that I love are This Miss Loves to Read, Reading Angel, The Fourth Musketeer, 21 Pages, Rhianah Reads.........

I hope that you enjoy taking a look round my blog and. I'd love to hear from you, so please feel free to drop me a comment! If you like my blog, please follow, I'd really appreciate it and don't forget to leave a link to your blog in a comment so I can check it out :D

I hope to be holding an 150 Followers Giveaway soon, so it would be great if you could help me get to that number soon!

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your weekend!

  8. Hi! Stopping over from the hop. I checked out your TBR list and there are quite a few I'm going to be adding to my list on Goodreads. Have a great weekend!

  9. Weird that Twitter wouldn't let you follow me - I checked my privacy settings but my profile's open to the public so it shouldn't be a problem...odd, must be some kind of bug in the system.

    Also, I think it will be quite a while before my blog is BBAW award nomination-worthy, but it's something to shoot for anyway! Thanks for the suggestion :D

  10. Hey, great blog you got over here. I'm a new follower, hopping over from the blog hop. I look forward to reading about the books you're reading, the books you're loving and even the books you don't love. Happy reading and enjoy your weekend!

  17. Hi Stephanie, thanks for visitng my blog! :)

    Honestly, I was pretty saddened that I didn't like Ivy as much as I hoped to. And I'd love to read your review when you do get back to it. However, I'm not totally put off YA Historical Fiction (one book will not put me down, muwahah!). I love The Luxe series and Henderson's Boys. :D

    Have a nice weekend! :)


I love comments, they make me smile! So thank you for taking the time to write one, I read all of them.
I try my best to reply here or on your blog :)
