Book Blogger Hops

It's time for the weekly book blogger hops again! A great opportunity to meet new bloggers and say hi to old favorites.

Check out the Book Blogger Hop hosted by Crazy For Books

Here's the question of the week: How many books are on your TBR shelf?

I'm Alison. I've been blogging for two months now. I review mainly YA with a few MG books.

I actually don't have a huge number of books on my physical TBR shelf - maybe 20. I don't buy many books - I am one of the library's best customers. But those books that I do buy often sit on my shelf for months or years unread, because I'm so busy reading the library books before their due date.

On my TBR list? Who knows...the number seems to grow every day. They range from the newest books that sound great, to books I've been meaning to read for months, to classics that I aspire to read but probably won't.

  1. Hi! I'm stopping by from the blog hop!

    I was looking at your sidebar about 'manga mondays' and thought you might like a suggestion or two because you said you're new to the genre. Since you like shojo and Twilight, you'd probably enjoy Vampire Knight. It has amazing artwork and a great storyline, and is one of the few I actually invest my money in (I have to pick and choose because they're so pricey!).

  3. Hi, Alison!

    Just hopping by! I'm already a follower of your blog.

    Your library must love you! Sometimes the idea of knowing you have a due date helps with the reading, less piling! :D

  4. Hi, Alison! Thanks for commenting on my Recent Releases post! It sounds like we're similar in being library addicts :) and adults that still prefer YA!

    I'm looking forward to checking out your blog!

  5. Hey Alison!
    I'm returning the hop and have just become a follower! :)

    Have a great weekend!

  6. Hi Alison!

    Thanks so much for stopping by Mindful Musings! And I definitely know what you mean about those classics that you aspire to read but never get around to. If it wasn't for my English classes, half of them wouldn't get read!

    And as far as Ballads of Suburbia goes, it's an AWESOME YA book. You can check out the description on Goodreads by clicking here.

    Have a great weekend! :)

  7. Thank you for stopping by my blog! :]

    I'm excited to read Ballad; I hope you get around to it! And surprisingly enough, I never read Lament.

  8. Hi Alison!
    Thanks for stopping by Reading Angel. I just wanted to hop back and let you know that I'm a new follower ;)

  9. Hey - just hoppin' by! Hope you have a great weekend! Stop by The Wormhole and say hi!

  10. Hi,

    I found your blog through the Book Blogger Hop. I took a look around and thought that your blog is great! So I decided to follow you. Come check out my blog as well:

    Warmest regards,
    John Smith

  11. Happy Friday!!!--Stopping by from the hop!--Old follower!!! (within the last two hops) :)

    my tbr number is a little high right now, but to be fair, I'm also including all the classics and such that I'd like to read "someday." The actual pile on my desk is much smaller ;)


  12. I am hopping in for the blog hop. I'm a follower, too!

    I love the library, too! It is my happy place, and if I have a bad day at work, it is the first place I stop at on my way home :)

    If you have time, drop in and say hi at Manga Maniac Cafe

  13. Hi again, blog hopping through : ) ! Happy Friday!
    And don’t forget to check out my site to see my weekly featured movie clip, special announcement, and my answer to this week’s Blog Hop’s question.

  14. I am the same way about my books - I'll buy them and let them sit there for months while I read my library books first. :)

  15. Howdy from the hop!

    I really need to get into the habit of visiting the library more often than buying books! Good job for being the best customer!

    Happy Reading,
    The Unread Reader

  16. Happy Friday. Come see how many books I have on my TBR pile.

  17. Hey! Thanks for stopping by my blog! I used to go to the library a lot but then I realized that I should also read the books I buy. Have a great weekend!

  18. Greetings! Just hopping by. I borrow a lot of books from the library but I'm also a book collector. Have a great weekend.

  19. Ditto on reading library books first...except I hate the old stinky books!

  20. Thanks for dropping in... and I have to say you are so good with not really buying books!! If I didn't like to see all the pretty pretty books sitting on my bookshelves here I'd be more of a library person myself.

    Have a great weekend!

  21. Heyy! Just hopping by via the blog hop and follow Friday! I am now following you! You've got a cute blog!!!

    Come and say hi!

  24. Already a follower! Stopping in to look around all the new things at your blog from last week! Love it! Hoppy weekend!

  25. Just popped in to say hi. I've been following your blog for awhile. Have a great weekend!

  26. Hey! Hopping by your blog. I am already a follower

  27. Thanks for finding me on the hop and follow. I am returning the favor and following you!! That is awesome that you have a good library close, there is one in Salem, but since I technically live in Keizer it is $80.00 for a library card. So I stick to bargain book shopping and passing books along between friends!
    Have a great week.



I love comments. I appreciate every one! Thank you in advance.
