Book Blogger Hop (11) & Follow Friday (3)

It's that time of the week again. Another week has gone by and once again Friday has come, and with Friday comes the Book Blogger Hop and Follow Friday.

Book Blogger Hop

The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by the lovely Jennifer of Crazy-for-Books. Every week over 300 book bloggers hop from one blog to the other and discover new blogs. Everything I discover wonderful new blogs and meet lots of new bloggers who come by and visit my blog.


This is kind of hard to do, there are so many blogs and bloggers out there that I love to go visit. I don't even know where to begin in choosing which ones to talk about here. I guess I won't limit myself to just one and will mention a few. I only just started blogging a little over two months ago so I don't know that many bloggers personally but there are still some blogs I love. So here goes:

- The Story Siren - basically she is amazing. I love her blog and her reviews are great. If I'm not sure about a book I can almost always go see her blog to get a better idea of if I would like it or not.
- 21 Pages - this blog essentially looks awesome. There are great reviews and posts about books but I first started loving this blog because of its look (yes, I can be that superficial).
- Flippin' Fabulous-A Reader's Record - this blog is actually quite new but already I love going to visit it just to see what is happening over there.
- Every Last Page - Danielle and I essentially started blogging about the same time and I originally found her blog through the hop. Since then I keep going back just to read her thoughts on books.

There are so many other blogs I could have mentioned, but I'll stick to those four for now. If I were to write down all the blogs I love, I probably would still be doing it by this time next week!

Follow Friday is also a weekly meme for book bloggers. This one is hosted by Parajunkee's View each week. I haven't been taking part in this one as long but so far I've met lots of wonderful people through this hop as well.


I have been back in classes for a week now and feel like all I am doing is reading about Communication, Political Science and Political Economy. I try to find as much time as possible to read books I can actually review and so far it doesn't seem too bad, but then again the school year has just started. I will try to post as many reviews as I can but posting more than one a week is going to be tough, some weeks just getting one out there could be difficult.

All this to is say that I may not be posting as much as I did over the summer but I will not stop, just slow down a little bit.

Enjoy your weekends!

  3. Hey Emilie, already a follower just stopping by. Political Economy?! Yikes! I started out as a Poli-Sci major :P
    Have an awesome weekend!

  4. hey Emilie, stopping by from the hop, i'm your newest follwoer :0 totally understand about school (although just HS for me xD) things can get pretty hectic!
    i love 21 pages too, i commented about how it was super pretty on my blog too xD
    ~Audrey (who blogs here! :) )

  5. Hi. The second I read the word Political my brain hurt for you! Sometimes things come up and we need to slow down a little. We're still here and looking forward to what you can share. Good luck in your studies :)

    Come by my HOP for this week

  6. I'm a teacher-librarian and we didn't start back to work until after Labor Day so I totally understand where you are coming from needing to focus on school.

  7. Hopping by! I majored in PoliSci and International Relations - loved some of it, didn't love other bits so much! Happy weekend!

  8. Hopping by and we are new followers! I hope things settle for you at school, I’m only taking one class and I feel consumed.

    Have a great weekend!

  9. Hi Emilie! Just hopping by. I LOVE 21 Pages. It's so pretty, and the reviews posted are always so great. Lovely choices.

    Polisci was a pretty interesting subject. I only had three units of it since I'm not a liberal arts major, so I only had a basic class back in freshman year, but it was one of my more interesting subjects that term.

    Have a great weekend!

  23. Hi Emilie,

    Hopping in from Book Blogger Hop. I love the clean lines and bright atmosphere of your blog and don't feel superficial... I feel the same way about Reading Without Restraint's blog... It's gorgeousity (yes I made that word up) is to die for.

    You'll catch the flow of those classes. Have a great weekend!


  24. Hope you have a Fabulous Weekend Emilie!

  26. Just stopping by to share some Friday blog love!
    I love your blog and the desogn of it! I´m your follower now!
    Have a great weekend!

  27. Good luck in school! Hope you have a great weekend. :)

  28. Hey, hopping in! I discovered your blog in last weeks hop but there was a problem with the following widget but I'm a follower now.

    I completely understand about school as I am going through exactly the same problem at the moment, finding as much time for pleasure reading as I would like to is a challenge and posting one review a week.
    I LOVE 21 Pages as well, like you say her layout is gorgeous and she has great content as well as being a fellow teen blogger.

    I'm going to be holding an 150 follower giveaway soon but I still need 10 more followers to reach that milestone so I would love it if you visited my blog.

    Enjoy your weekend, I'll be back here soon!
