Book Blogger Hop July 30-Aug 2

Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme sponsored by Jen at Crazy-for-Books, in an attempt to get book bloggers to check out their comrades across the bloggersphere.

This week's blogger question is: Who is your favorite new-to-you author so far this year? Gosh, do I have to pick just one?? Can I cheat and name: Ayelet Waldman (Bad Mother), Joshilyn Jackson (Backseat Saints) and Steven Galloway (The Cellist of Sarajevo) -- all three of these authors and their books have made me want to continue indulging in their writing talent.

Have fun this weekend hopping around, and I hope you enjoy your stop here and come back more often!


  1. Just over from the Hop! I see One Day is on your TBR list. I just read and reviewed it over at my blog. Have a great weekend!


  2. Hopping by from the hop. I also took a peek at your montage, and I hope you like I Capture The Castle as much as I did.

  9. Hi. Stopping in from the hop. I see you read "The Glass Castle" this year. I read it last year and was blown away. What an incredible story and so complex. It has gone onto my favorites list.
    Have a good weekend, Dianne

  10. Hi

  11. Hi there...stopping by from the hop. I took a look at your books read this year and last and it looks like we read some of the same types of books.

    I had a hard time answering this week's question because I, too, have come across so many new authors this year. I did manage to pick one - Christine Trent.

    I'm a new follower and love your blog - I, too, love gerber daisys.

    Have a great day!
    Always With a Book

    I don't know how I have missed your blog (our interests are so similar), I'm visiting via the hop but will be back.

  15. I named more than one in my post too. Happy Friday. Come see who my new favorite authors are.

  16. Gerbera Daisies are my absolute favorite flower. It looks like our reading taste is pretty similar too. Just became a follower. I look forward to getting to know you.

  17. Another Melissa! So nice to meet you from this week's Hop. I haven't read any of those authors, but they are all on my ever-growing TBR list.
