Blog Hop

Book Blogger Hop

What a great idea! I love following readers blogs almost more than I like blogging myself. What a great way to get out there and meet new people who share the same interests as you.

This Week's Question: Who is your favourite new-to-you author so far this year?

I would have to saw that my favourite new to me author is John Green. I know he’s not a new author, but once I read Looking for Alaska, he was on my radar. I love his ability to merge quirkiness with heart breaking honesty and his gift at crafting beautifully flawed characters and supporting characters. I know a lot of people think his books are too similar, but I like that when I pick up a John Green book I know it is going to be a pleasant reading experience. He is defiantly one of my favourite authors.

As a side note: I’ll be spending the next three weekends at my cottage so I wont be able to respond to comments as quick as I usually do or get out to as many blogs as I normally would. I’ll try my best, happy weekend : )

What a great looking blog. I'm a new follower and stopped by from the weekend's blog hop. I haven't read anything by John Green but I plan to. You're reading a lot of the books that I've either read and enjoyed or want to read. Must go through your archives now.

Keep up the good work and happy reading!
