Waiting On Wednesday (9): Paranormalcy by Kiersten White

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking The Spine spotlighting upcoming releases.


Pet-Peeve Question:


I thought I'd throw this in here so people would hopefully notice it. Does it bother you when people link to their blog in comments? I've heard that it is a common pet-peeve. I have started doing this in many of my comments. My reasoning? I try as much as I can to comment back on every comment I receive. It is so much easier to comment back if someone has linked to their blog in the comments. So I've started doing the same. Not that I expect a comment-back (although it's always nice), but to lessen the hassle of going through blogger.


Paranormalcy by Kiersten White
August 31, 2010


I am super-excited for this book. More and more bloggers are posting reviews of the ARCs. It seems to be almost universally liked.


Summary


Sixteen-year-old Evie's job is bagging and tagging paranormals. Possessing the strange ability to see through their glamours, she works for the International Paranormal Containment Agency. But when someone--or something--starts taking out the vamps, werewolves, and other odd beasties she's worked hard to help become productive members of society, she's got to figure it out before they all disappear and the world becomes utterly normal. 

Normal is so overrated.

  3. Hey Alison, I came back to find an email to respond to your comment on my WOW, but no luck. Libyrinth and it's sequel are YA, but North is a pseudo for Anne Harris who writes for adults. My review and interview which I posted yesterday give a lo more info on this.

    Thanks for stopping by.

  9. I like when people leave their link (though, for some reason, I can't seem to figure it out! *headdesk*) but I don't like when the only comment they leave is something like "Hi! Just stopped by. Come visit me!" 'cause that seems like a cut & paste beg for followers (this doesn't include the Hops--that's a totally different thing).

    Paranormalcy does have some great buzz, and I love the cover. Def. on my wish list.

  10. I've been wanting to read Paranormalcy ever since I first heard about it, it's gotten great reviews. I can't wait until it's out!

  11. This book sounds great.

    On the links in comments---it only bothers me if I can tell that people are not really commenting on my blog to comment, but are just leaving a comment in order to link to themselves. So, if I feel like someone is using my blog as free advertising, it bugs me. If you're leaving a "real" comment then I like having the link because I like to comment back and it does make it so much easier. Thanks for getting this issue out there!!!

  13. I'm anxious for this one as well. I just love the cover and I'm hearing great things about it.

    I didn't realize leaving your blog addy was a pet peeve. I love links left so I can visit the blog. I can see where it would be not as nice if it was a comment just linking to a blog. I usually say something relevant to the blog post and if it's a meme link back to my blog.

  14. I'm looking forward to Paranormalcy too! I didn't realize leaving a link to your blog was a pet peeve either. I don't mind. Although, with my blog I can't click on the link, so I just copy and past the blog URL. I always try to comment back. I feel if someone was nice enough to stop by my blog, I should return the favor.

  15. I hope that you get your book soon, and that it is everything you hope it to be. Here's my WOW Happy reading!

  16. Hehe, this was my WoW pick last week! ^_^

    As to your question, no, it doesn't bother me. In fact, if your blog link hadn't been in your comment on my WoW post, I probably wouldn't be here now.

    I like your layout by the way, nice and soothing blue. ^_^

  17. And my answer to your comment: no, I do not get mad when people link to their blog. Isn't that the whole point of posting a meme? For me, my blog is on Wordpress so blogger names don't always register. I don't know if someone wants me to check out their posting unless they tell me. So I don't visit unless someone leaves a link.

  18. Great pick! I'm waiting for Paranormalcy too.

    In answer to your question: I actually prefer for people to link to their blog when they make comments on my posts. It's so much easier to return the favor. I generally won't respond if there is no link for me to follow.

    Thanks for visiting my blog An Avid Reader's Musings.
