Blog Hops

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

Check out the Book Blogger Hop hosted by Crazy For Books.


GIVEAWAY! I'm giving away a SIGNED copy of Book Crush by Nancy Pearl. Go HERE to enter!

I'm Alison. I've been blogging for four months. I review mainly YA with a few MG books and a weekly manga feature.

Currently, I'm in the middle of Harry Pott-ober! Throughout October, I'll be doing my Third Annual Harry Potter Re-Read. Check out my post about it here.

Books Reviewed This Week:

Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
Gone by Lisa McMann
Emma vol. 6 by Kaoru Mori

Questions of the Week:

Blog Hop: What's your favorite beverage while reading or blogging, if any? I'm basically a water gal. I drink much more than the recommended 8 glasses of water per day - mostly because I grab my water bottle whenever I'm bored at the computer - better than grabbing candy. At night or sometimes in the morning, I like drinking a warm mug of herbal tea. Hot chocolate is my beverage of choice at coffeeshops. Starbucks used to make a fabulous Signature Hot Chocolate, but they discontinued it. Now, Caribou Coffee's hot chocolate is my favorite chain store drink.

Follow Friday: How many reviews do you like to do per week? I usually try to put up 2 to 3 reviews each week.

And also check out Parajunkee's Follow My Book Blog Friday.

  19. Hey, Alison! Happy Friday! I'm with you on the water...I have it in front of me at my desk nonstop so I drink more than my 8 glasses a day. Though, I have to say, I have quite a high number of spilling water on my keyboard incidents. Whoops!

  32. I totally need to follow your thing on the water, just grab a water over the pudding cup (though it is sugar free).

    Found you through blogger hop. Have a good day.

  33. Hey I just saw you came by and asked a question. Umm one of the authors was returning with a few more of her books, another author I reviewed for recommended me to another author and two I think came from visiting my site. I was totally blown away because it was unexpected but I'm really excited about it. Now I have the fun time of reading :)

  36. Does your water need to be cold? I find I need ice cold water otherwise I can actually barely stand drinking it... which seems really strange to me.

    And I'm glad to see you do so many reviews a week. I'll have to up the number I do on my blog. I hadn't been doing that many because I was afraid it might bug people!

  41. Thanks for stopping by at Murphy's Library (www.murphyslibrary.com)!

    About our daily reviews, so far, it's been working lol We do read a lot--and once we're 2 people, it's kinda easier to keep it daily... We're still writing reviews about books we already read a while ago, so we don't know for how long we're gonna be able to keep it daily :)

    I'm following you now. Hope you're having a great weekend!
