Questions of the Week:
My Question: Have any of you had difficulty finding Anna and the French Kiss at the bookstores? It wasn't at the B&N by my house or the cool indie bookstore. I found it at the B&N at the mall, but there was just one copy shoved on a shelf. Every blogger I've read adores this book. It would be a shame if non-bloggers never hear about it.
Blog Hop: What is the thing you like most about reading book blogs? Is it the reviews, author guest posts, articles, giveaways, or something else entirely? I like all these things. Reviews are definitely the reason I first got interested in book blogs. Giveaways are always fun. Guest posts and interviews are cool, because I get to know authors in ways I wouldn't otherwise.
Follow Friday: Do you have an under-noticed author that you think we should all know about? Joanna Philbin (daughter of Regis) has a YA series called The Daughters that I absolutely adore. You have characters with the wealth and fashion sense of Gossip Girls, but are actually nice people. You can read my reviews for The Daughters and The Daughters Break The Rules.
I also love Kimberley Pauley. She has two books about a girl named Mina who is the daughter of vampires and has to decide if she wants to become a vampire. Snarky and sarcastic, Kimberly's books are a fun addition to vampire canon. Check out my reviews of Sucks To Be Me and Still Sucks To Be Me!
