Book Blogger Hop - September 17

Book Blogger Hop

In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and find new book-related blogs that we may be missing out on! This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books! It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs that they may not know existed!

Each week, participating blogs are asked questions to post and answer on their websites.

In honor of Book Blogger Appreciation Week, let's take time this week to honor our favorite book bloggers and why we love them!

There are so many great book bloggers out there that sometimes it is hard to choose.  I often find myself using the Blog Hop, or Blogfest to add new blogs to my list.  To keep them under control, I often unsubscribe the ones that just aren't working for me. 

 Some of my favourite book bloggers -

A Good Addiction - Kari always has great variety on her website and updates regularly.  I first started really noticing her when she won an ARC of Clockwork Angel from going nuts on Twitter in a contest.  Well done Kari (on the blog, not winning the contest).

Tynga's Reviews - Tynga is a fellow Canadian and she also offers variety on her website.  I love how beautiful her homepage looks.  Did you know that she also does designwork on the side?  Tynga, we might be contacting you as we grow!  Tynga also offers up great reviews, videos and even vlogs.  Vlogs on some sites are a bit painful and can drone on but Tynga keeps her videos short and to the point.  Great job Tynga! 

Stop, Drop and Read - Diana's blog description indicates that she reviews YA fiction, Japanese and Korean Graphic novels but I've found that she focuses more on the YA fiction.  I used to live in Asia for a short time and I love her feature called Music Machine.  Sometimes at the end of a review, she will put up a video from an Asian singer or group.  It just adds something special to her blog and reminds me of a place I once called home.  Plus, she isn't afraid to raise a stink when something about the book world is bothering her.  Two thumbs up Diana!

I follow so many other blogs but these are my top three at the moment.  do you have any that you'd like to share?  Please post a comment and tell us why they stand out in your mind.

Make yourself at home, take a look around our blog and let us know what you think in the comments section.  We would love to hear what you have to say about our posts.  We try to post almost everyday so there is always something new to read.  Since there are two of us running the show, we always have a variety of titles and events we are commenting on.  Happy hopping!
