Book Blogger Hop (22) & Follow Friday (14)

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 VERY POPULAR AND HYPED BOOK IN THE BLOGOSPHERE DID YOU NOT ENJOY AND HOW DID YOU FEEL ABOUT POSTING YOUR REVIEW?

Luckily, I guess, this has yet to happen to me. Most of the books I've seen a lot of hype about and I have read haven't disappointed me. On the other hand, there have been popular and hyped books I've looked into and some of the reviews I've read have made me hesitant to pick them up and read them. But I guess it's a good thing that so far I haven't had to post a review that was overly negative. I just tend to enjoy most of what I read.



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:

WHAT DO YOU DO BESIDES READING/REVIEWING AS A HOBBY?

As a second year university student I don't have all that much time for any hobby but I do make time for reading. In the past I've also made jewelry and I still do when I find the time. All through middle and high school I was a competitive athlete running cross-country in the fall and track in the spring. Now most of my time is divided between school work, reading and blogging. But I still go running every so often and make some new jewelry when I have the time.

UPDATE:

I officially have two more days of classes and two assignments to hand in and then I'm done with the semester...until finals in a couple of weeks. So I will now be disappearing into the wonderful worlds of communications and political science and hopefully come out alive on the other end. I'm really excited to go back home for Christmas and I just need to get through this last little bit. I have some reviews scheduled and a few guest posts from lovely bloggers so be on the lookout for those in the next couple of weeks!


That's it for this week!

Enjoy your weekends!

  13. I love it! A question pertaining something other than books! Here's the
    short list of what I'm doing when I'm not reading:

    Cooking, gaming, gambling, drinking, smoking, golfing and sometimes even
    watching TV.

    I expound on all of the above at my blog. Follow me here -

  15. New follower stopping by on the blog hop to say hi! Return the favour?

    School is so stressful! I actually listed homework as my hobby. I hate it but I can't deny the truth!

    Have a good weekend!
