The Book Blogger Hop (17)

The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly event hosted by Jennifer at Crazy for Books and runs from Friday to Sunday. 

The Hop is a fantastic way to get your blog noticed, and visit some other blogs that you didn't know about before. Head over and sign up and see what you can find!

Each week a different question will be added to the hop in order for conversations to occur, and for your followers to get to know you better. Here we go!

"Tell us about one of your posts this week,
and give us a link so we can read it?

This week I wrote an unconventional review for DEMONGLASS by Rachel Hawkins. I was so excited to borrow an ARC from a fell Texan blogger! Sometimes I get a little bored reading reviews and I figure my audience does as well. So, I shook things up *just a tad*. So...jump HERE to read a pretty much spoiler free review.  

Follow Friday is hosted by the lovely Rachel at Parajunkee's View. Here is her question:

"What is your favorite romance hero type?"

Hmm, honestly, I don't do a lot of romance. If there is a love interest in the story, I like the man to be a bit reckless. I hate to say bad-boy type, but yes, bad-boy. Tattoos, motorcycle, and beat up leather jacket....I'll take it all. Oh, he can ditch the cigarettes though, yuck! I would prefer him to have a bit of mystery, a dead parent, and maybe a dog that follows him everywhere. ;)

Literary Lonestar Giveaway HERE (look for 200 giveaway status update)
Review and giveaway of Memento Nora coming soon...


  1. Yes. You've convinced me. I want my romantic hero to have a dog that follows him every too!

  2. I have not read Hex Hall yet, so I didn't read the Demonglass review... however I am going to have to agree that the bad boys do have a certain appeal. However, I often love the good ones just as much. A huge appeal for me is their personality/humor. I love me some sarcasm. :)

  3. Hopping over for the blog hop.

    Have a nice weekend!

  4. The Post Is:

    This week I reviewed a work of suspense fiction that is such a wide departure from the thriller genre that I feel everyone – fans and foes of the genre alike – really should investigate.

  5. Jen, just checking out your blog as part of the blogger book hop. I love the title! I don't reach much YA, but did love Christina Meldrum's Madapple and quite enjoyed that. She guest blogged for my favorite link this week for her new (adult) novel.

  6. I'm stopping by via the blog hop and wanted to say that I adore your layout. As for romantic heroes, I'm definitely agreeing with you on bad-boys! My favorites are some of J.R. Ward's Black Dagger brothers, since she seems to get the combination of dark and caring just right.

  7. Stopping by from the blog hop and to tell you about a book giveaway.

    Giveaway for GREAT HOUSE by Nicole Krauss will begin on my blog on February 19th until February 23.

    I won't be the only blog giving away books.

    Stop back on Saturday for the full post and giveaway form.

    Mark your calendars.
