Blog Hop Tour - Friday, May 7th

Book Blogger Hop

Haven't blog hopped in a while. It's nice to be back.

In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop hosted by 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! So, go to, grab the logo, post about the Hop on your blog, and start HOPPING through the list of blogs that are posted in the Linky list!!

The Hop lasts Friday-Monday every week, so if you don't have time to Hop today, come back later and join the fun! This is a weekly event! And stop back at throughout the weekend to see all the new blogs that are added! There are over 200 links every week!!

RULES - of course there are rules:

Your blog should have content related to books, including, but not limited to book reviews.

1. Enter your book blog link in the Linky List, including the genre that you review!

In your link, please state the main genre that you review: eclectic, contemp. fiction, ya, paranormal, mystery, non-fiction, etc.  Example: Crazy-for-Books (contemp. adult fiction)

2. Post about the Hop on your blog. Spread the word about the book party! The more the merrier! In your blog post, answer the following question (new question each week!).

This weeks question comes from Twitter! Thanks to Melissa (aka Miel_et_Lait) who blogs at Miel et Lait.

"Which book blogger would you most like to meet
in real life?"

My answer: Hmmm...I would like to meet Julie from Booking Mama! She seems to have the same ideas I have -- or used to have when my kids were younger. I like that she started a book club that meets after school. I worked with a group of kids 6-7-8th grade several summers when we were in reading competitions. We would read books and get together and talk about them (and eat pizza, of course). Our group ended up WINNING the competition the last year we entered. We only had 1/2 the students of the other teams, but we read ALL the books and the kids were AWESOME!

3. Visit other blogs in the Linky List! Make new friends! Follow new book bloggers! Talk about books! Rave about authors! Take the time to make a quality visit! Check out other posts and content, make a new friend! Don't randomly follow someone if you never intend on actually following them! No spamming please! (Please do not leave your link and not visit other blogs - it's just not cool and not in the spirit of the Hop!)

And just as an FYI - this event is not something you should feel that you have to participate in every week. If you want to join in and link up once a month, GREAT! It's up to you how often you participate!

So get on over to and link up!
