Book Blogger Hop (15) & Follow Friday (7)

It's Friday so it means it's time for Book Blogger Hop and Follow Friday!

First off, the Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Jennifer of Crazy-for-Books. It is a way for all the book bloggers out there to get together and find out about each other's blogs. I've found a lot of great blogs and bloggers through this hop and it's always a lot of fun to take part in each week.

THIS WEEK'S QUESTION:

WHEN YOU READ A BOOK THAT YOU JUST CAN'T GET INTO, DO YOU STICK IT OUT AND KEEP READING OR MOVE TO YOUR NEXT TITLE?

It honestly depends on the book. Sometimes I won't be able to get into it but if I keep going things pick up and I can get really into the book. Other times I know nothing's going to come of it so I just give up. Most of the time I will keep reading just because I'm afraid I could potentially miss out on something really good just because I didn't give the book a chance.




The Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee's View every week. It works a lot like the Book Blogger Hop except that it's only on Fridays. I haven't been taking part in this hop as long but I've found a lot of great new blogs through this one too.

THIS WEEK'S QUESION:

WHAT IS YOUR READING SUGGESTION THIS WEEK?

That's a very good question. I would say Nevermore by Kelly Creagh. I just finished it last weekend and it was absolutely amazing. It's pretty long but it doesn't drag on at all.


UPDATES:

I am back home and this weekend I will be participating and holding a mini-challenge for Lesley of YA Books Reviewed's Halloween Read-a-Thon. Basically I will be reading all weekend, not that it's much different from what I do most weekends. Other than that school has slowed down a bit now that we've moved past the middle of the semester but things will probably pick up again in a few weeks. I'll just enjoy if for now!

    I haven't read Nevermore yet, but it's definitely on my list! I've heard it's fantastic (and I love Edgar Allan Poe)!

  5. Just hoppin’ on by <3 I'm an old follower :)

    I usually stick books out, even if it annoys me like crazy. I like giving fair chances to books, and I feel incomplete if I don’t finish it. I’ve even stuck it through an entire series I absolutely hated. Maybe it’s just me being weird.

  9. Happy Follow Friday!!! Hope you will stop by my blog too! My publisher and I are looking for a group of bloggers for a huge blog tour next year before the release of book two in my 'A Sense of Truth' series! We will be giving out a few more copies of The Thirteenth Chime (we can only give out so many, being open to e-books gives an upper hand) and are still open to all interviews and guest posts. We want to fill up the Amazon page with reviews and try to reach as many people as we can!!! Hope you might consider being a part of the team! Thank you either way! 

    Sincerely,

  14. That's why I always go check out other people's reviews if I'm struggling through a book. It's worked out sometimes that their reviews will say, "Stick with it, the end is totally awesome"... so I do. :)
