Friday Blog Hop - June 3rd

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.

This week’s question –

Share your favourite post from the last month and tell us why it's close to your heart!

This is a toughie.  There are so many great posts out there.  I love the bloggers who share their BEA experience with those of us who weren't able to go.  Also, one of the things that I love to read are the author blogs.  There was a post (I think it was by Kody Keplinger author of The Duff) who wrote about the "real" salary of an author.  It was fascinating.  We always think of authors as the superstars of the book industry but in reality, they aren't making much more than you or fact many are making much less.  The comparison was done for a one book deal and the mega 3 book trilogy series.  The real value comes in doing something you love.  If anyone else read the blog post that I'd speaking of, I'd love to find the link again...

Welcome to the Paperback Princesses! 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 often try to comment on your comments as well so feel free to start a conversation! Since there are two of us running the show, we always have a variety of titles and event postings. Be sure to check out our own personal meme page. Check out Fantastic Fairytales, Let's Hear it for the Boys, In Case you Missed it and a few others. We try to not only focus on new YA books but also great titles from the past.
