Book Blog Hop X

Once again it's Friday and time for the blog hope, hosted by Crazy-for-Books.  I missed the hop last week due to lots of travel but I'm around this weekend and ready to find some new blogs.  So this week's question is: In honor of Book Blogger Appreciation Week, let's take time this week to honor our favorite book bloggers and why we love them!

I actually started a post about this the other day so this hop seems like the perfect reason to post it.  That and it means I've pretty much already answered it, so less work for me!  Below are some blogs I love checking out, though this is far from an extensive list.  I will get back into the habit of following up the Hop with a list of blogs I love to read but if you'd like to see my previous entries about other bloggers you should read check out my posts here, here and here.   And now onto some other bloggers:

When I first started blogging I saw all of these book blogs getting these snazzy awards.  Anytime I saw someone get it I would scan their list of blogs to see if I was one of them.  When I finally was I did a little happy dance.  I know that these awards are pretty much chain letters: you don't have to do anything special to win, other than to be awesome in one of your reader's eyes. I still get this little blogger high when I see an award but I have been failing in terms of thanking people on my blog.  I want everyone to know how thankful I am for the awards so I wanted to do that here!  This list will hopefully also give some of my other readers some other amazing blogs to check out.

A Thousand Books with Quotes - This is great collection of quotes from books.  I love that this isn't the typical book review blog and I always enjoy checking it out.  You find great quotes and new books to check out.

My Reader's Block - She participates in some fun memes (read: ones I actually enjoy reading instead of ones I sigh and skip over) and her reviews of mostly mystery books give me a whole new genre of books to look for!

Sarah Reads Too Much - Sarah reviews some books I wouldn't normally pick up but her descriptions make the book sound like something I would enjoy.  I've added The Nanny Diaries to my unofficial TBR list.

The Far Too Important Blog - Geophrie's blog covers a little bit of everything.  At least a little bit of everything that I like to read about.  The book reviews are fun and I love the Project Runway recaps and the post about how bachelorette parties need to get out of the gay bars.  Wonderful funny stuff!

The Book Stop - CurleyGeek mentioned me as part of the Blogger Appreciation week and I was so flattered I sent Boyfriend to read the post so he could see people do seem to like my ramblings. (Not that he didn't believe me but he made me blog so he wanted some credit.)  Her reviews are very thought provoking and she opens up intelligent conversation.  It's always a treat when I see she has a new post.


  1. Found you through the hop. I'm a new follower :)

  2. I thought for sure I had left a message...I stopped by on the Hop and was so surprised to see your mention of My Reader's Block! Thanks! As you can see (, I enjoy your blog too! Happy Weekend!

  3. Hey Bev, you had stopped by. I use the Intense Debate commenter and for whatever reason it disappeared and erased all of the earlier comments. It happened with an old post and suddenly all of those posts came back so I'm just hoping that happens this time but we'll see.

  4. Thanks for the mention! Your comment about your boyfriend made me laugh out loud. Now I have to share this with my husband for the same reason! I LOVE getting mentioned on other people's blogs so thanks for the nice words. I also liked what you said about memes you sigh and skip over -- everyone's got their own style but some blogs are just all memes.
