Hops, Follows, and Tag Alongs, Oh My!

Don't forget to check out Week 3 of our Spring Celebration with interviews, reviews, reading recommendations, and four fantastic giveaways!

It's time for another Book Blogger Hop, courtesy of Crazy for Books!

Book Blogger Hop

"If you find a book you love, do you hunt down other books by the same author?"

YES! I am seriously OCD when it comes to books . . . if I love one, I absolutely must find everything that author has ever written.

It's also time for the Friday Follow, courtesy of Parajunkee's View!

"What is on your current playlist right now?"

Oh, I am in weird and wonderful mood tonight . . . in a mood to rock out and smile at the same time. That means some Steel Panther, Semi Precious Weapons, and Infant Sorrow (from the Get Him to the Greek soundtrack).

The 18 & Over Book Blogger Tag Along is courtesy of Bitten by Paranormal Romance!


"What attracts you most to a book? Is it the cover, blurb or something else?"

In most cases, it`s either the blurb that attracts me, or (as awful as this is) the front-cover recommendations from authors I already love. I know a bit about how those quotes get lifted and abused, but it still has an impact.

As always, I urge you to hop around to some new blogs, tag along with some new friends, and find some great new reviews to follow. I always find something new to delight me!

  12. Hi & Happy Friday! I am another new follower :)

  13. I have to say I have no idea who any of these groups are.
    And yeah, the OCD thing? God. I need to shelve every book in a neat little goodreads shelf or I lose my mind. This reminds me... I still have 10 pages of books to go through. This is what happens when I create a paranoraml shelf 4 months after creating an account. Sigh.

  14. Stopping by on the book blogger hop-I'm your newest follower. I love reading several books by an author whose book I loved. I like to see how the books fit together, and how the author's style develops. Love your cute blog title, looking forward to reading more posts.

  15. Hey, returning the visit and following you now. :) It's cool to meet another Within Temptation fan (most people I know have never heard of them!) I saw Semi Precious Weapons at Lady Gaga's Monster Ball Concert last fall-- they were awesome, and so was she! (Of course)
    Anyway, hope you have a great weekend!
