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.
If you can recommend a book from the following genres, what would they be? A book from Romance, NA, YA, and Fantasy.
Tessa’s Note: I am not including a NA book (I haven’t read any) but I added in mystery genre in its place.

Romance (Romantic Comedy):
Even if Romance genre isn’t your thing, I highly recommend this book by debut author, Nina Kaye. It’s very relatable (even includes writing fiction and blogging), more comedy than romance, and is very well written – tightly woven plot, natural flow and dialogue, and well-developed characters.
I can’t recommend this book too many times!!!
My review can be found here.
This is my new favorite YA fantasy series. My review isn’t scheduled to come out until the 20th of July, so I can’t link it here but you can find it on Goodreads if you want to see it before the 20th.
This series is just so fun! I all-caps love all of the mythical beasts in the stories and how people can only perform magic if they bond with a mythical beast. Also, their magical abilities correspond with the abilities of the beast. Very cool!
I also love that it is on Kindle Unlimited and, if you don’t have that, then it’s only 3.99 (US). So great world-building, fun, and budget-friendly.
YA Fantasy Honorable Mentions:
The Great Devil War by Kenneth B. Andersen
Shadow of the Fox by Julie Kagawa
This is a hard genre to pick just one book because there are just so many sub-genres and they are all very different. But if I have to choose one, I think I’m going with The Family Upstairs by Lisa Jewel. It is a psychological thriller with a great complex mystery and the aspect I loved the most is its truly creepy ending.

Mystery Honorable Mentions:
Hodes Hill Mystery series by Mae Clair (Supernatural Mystery)
Medlar Mystery Series by Jude Deveraux (Cozy Mystery)
Will Trent Series by Karin Slaughter (Thrillers)
This is another hard one because, like with mystery, there are so many sub-genres and they are very different. But, I decided on The Grave Kingdom series, an epic fantasy by Jeff Wheeler, because the world-building is particularly incredible, the characters are complex and well-developed, and the Asian-inspired magic is very cool. Like my YA choice, it is available on Kindle Unlimited or only 4.99 (US) to buy – so budget-friendly. I don’t know about you, but I do enjoy a good book bargain.
Fantasy Honorable Mentions:
Gunnie Rose series by Charlaine Harris (Historical Fantasy)
The Vine Witch series by Luanne G. Smith (Romantic Fantasy)
All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness (Urban Fantasy)
