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 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.
