Book Blogger Hop | Blogger Book Recommendations

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.

Question:

As a book blogger yourself, what was the last book you read as a result of a fellow blogger’s post?

(submitted by Flora @ Flora’s Musings…)

Answer:

I am totally honest with other bloggers that I am a slave to my very full review schedule which consists of blog tours and NetGalley ARCs. BUT, I routinely put books that I see recommended by other bloggers on my Goodreads TBR. And, if I have an open block (sometimes because it works out that way and sometimes because I DNF a book) then I go to my TBR and pick a book.

Mae Clair’s Cusp of Night was one of those books. Mae is so incredibly supportive and her books sound so interesting and well reviewed by other bloggers that I put it at the top of my TBR and actually had an opportunity to read and review it.

I also have made time in my schedule, this summer to enjoy books that I have purchased- many based on blogger recommendations, such as 9th House by Leigh Bardugo, House of Salt and Sorrows by Erin A. Craig, and House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas.

How about you? What was the last book you read as a result of a fellow blogger’s post?

  1. Hi,
    I haven’t read a book posted by a blogger, but by a book club friend.

    Have a great day!

    1. Hi, Sherrie! That is a book that is on my TBR. I actually had it from the library when it first came out and ran out of time to read it. I can kick myself for that now 😊. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Thanks for sharing! I’m just joining the book blogging community, so it’s interesting to hear some feedback from someone farther down the line. I’m curious – how long have you been reviewing?

      1. Thanks! Glad to be here and learn a bit. I’m curious if you don’t mind me asking. How did you manage 5,600 followers in a year and a half?

      2. A lot of work on social media and through the social aspect of WordPress. Following other book blogs and authors and commenting on their posts, putting out my own posts on a consistent schedule, doing follow trains for blogs on Twitter and Instagram, participating in blog tours, doing book blog meme posts. It can be exhausting but that was how I did it.

  3. I enjoyed Mae’s book too. And most of the books I read, Tess, are based on blogger reviews or blogger engagement. I’m so eager to read 9th House, House of Salt and Sorrows, and House of Earth and Blood (Lots of Houses?) I wish I had more reading time!! ❤

  4. I never heard of this book 🙂

    WOW, you request a lot of ARCs it seems. Aren’t you overwhelmed sometimes?

    1. I have a schedule, so outside of that I try not to think about it. BUT I am very relieved when I post the review and it gets taken off my list 😊
