Book Blogger Hop (18) & Follow Friday (10)

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

Book Blogger Hop

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 fun to take part in each week.

THIS WEEK'S QUESTION:

WHAT ARE YOUR FEELINGS ON LOSING FOLLOWERS? HAVE YOU EVER STOPPED FOLLOWING A BLOG?

I honestly have nothing against people stopping to follow me. I don't take it personally, if they don't want to follow me anymore than it's their choice. And it's not like I can hunt down every single person who stops following me, and even if I could I would be wasting some precious reading time. As far as stopping to follow a blog, I don't think I've ever done that but I'm sure that at some point down the line it will happen.




The Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee's View each 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 QUESTION:

WHO ARE YOUR FAVORITE AUTHORS?

This could turn into a really long answer but I'll try to keep it short. I would have to say that my all time favorite authors are Sarah Dessen, Meg Cabot and J.K. Rowling. I have read all the books ever written by these three authors and have pretty much loved them all. Other than these three ladies, there are other authors out there that I really like such as Cassandra Clare, Richelle Mead, Simone Elkeles, Julie Kagawa, Alyson Noël and the list could go on and on. I have a tendency to have way too many favorites for just about everything and I guess that seems to be happening with authors as well.


UPDATES:
It is now November and that means I only have a month to go until exams and the end of the semester. It also means I will be really busy writing essays and doing assignments for my classes so my reading and blogging time may get cut down. I was able to get more reading done than I expected the first two months of the school year so I have some reviews scheduled more or less through November and I will try to do other posts as often as possible. This week is Amber of Down the Rabbit Hole's YA Love Triangle Week. You should definitely go check out her blog on Sunday and vote for Team Damon.

That's it for this week!

Enjoy your weekends!

  9. I'm always a little bummed when I lose followers but make every effort to
    turn every lost follower into a learning experience so I can improve my
    performance.

    On the flip side, I only stop following people when they give me a reason to
    such as being totally off message or being too controversial in an negative,
    over-the-top way.

    Happy Book Blogger Hop Friday!

  12. Hi, Good luck with your exams and essays. I guess there are some advantages to age.
    I am not a big fan of the "what is your favorite some thing question." It is right up there with what do you want for Christmas.
