The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to their own blog.
I actually ask a few questions, like what books have you read and enjoyed? What are some of your favorite movies/tv shows that you are currently watching? And then I go from there. I try to pick books that I have found to be easy reads for someone who doesn’t read often, for instance some of my more frequent suggestions are:
Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum series and Sophie Kinsella’s Shopaholic series
and they are definitely better than getting a rose, though I am sure the Bachelor this season is a great guy ❤️
I don’t usually recommend more intense reads (thrillers, high fantasy, etc…) for someone who doesn’t read often. That seems to be something a person would graduate into – it would be like receiving a marriage proposal from the Bachelor without first getting a rose. Instead I pull from the shallow end of the pool where they are probably hanging out.
Book Blog Hopping Across the Blogosphere
I saw where another book blogger added book review posts from around the blogosphere to their Book Blogger Hop post, and I thought, Wow what a great idea! So I am doing that too ❤️. I can’t remember who the blogger is but if it’s you and you see this – thank you!
So, hop on over to these book blogs to see excellent reviews (on books other than mystery or fantasy) and bookish posts from a few of the amazing bloggers I follow:
