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.
I'm Alison. I've been blogging for five months. I review mainly YA with a few MG books and a weekly manga feature.
New Feature: What Books?
I've decided to start a new feature called "What Books?" I have so many book memories from my childhood. Different books touched me in different ways and had came to me at important times. I plan on running this feature from time to time - maybe twice a month? - and feature books that I love(d) for different reasons.
Some topics I've thought of:
1. The first book that really turned you into a reader
2. Books you didn't like at first but now love
3. Favorite books you read in high school English
4. Favorite series from elementary school

Questions of the Week:
Blog Hop: What are your feelings on losing followers? Have you ever stopped following a blog? Naturally, I'd prefer only to gain and not to lose any followers. But attrition is natural. People like blogs for different reasons, like different kinds of books, etc. I would hope that nothing about my blog is so controversial that people would leave it in anger - I do my best to be balanced about everything, including books I don't like.
I have stopped following a blog, but never because I was upset with it. I follow tons of blogs, out of courtesy to those who follow me and because I like lots of different blogs. But if I notice a blog hasn't been updated for awhile, I'll drop it, assuming that it's inactive. Otherwise, I probably won't stop following a blog.
Follow Friday: Who are your favorite authors? That's sort of like asking who are your favorite children - well, not really, but it's hard to choose.
Here are some of the authors who I consistently love (I've excluded authors for whom I've only read one book): Maggie Stiefvater, Stephenie Meyer, J.K. Rowling, Jane Austen, Ann Rinaldi, Lois Lowry, Richelle Mead, Suzanne Collins, Melina Marchetta, Alley Carter, Jen Calonita, Kami Garcia/Melissa Stohl, Jeff Shaara, Bill Bryson, Joseph Ellis, David McCullough, Orson Scott Card, L.M. Montgomery, Laurie Halse Anderson, Maud Hart Lovelace - I could go on...
