At this time I will no longer be taking any new review requests or participating in any memes. There will still be author interviews, blasts, guest posts and occasionally reviews posted (as I climb through by TBR pile!!). Life is kind of hectic and I have to focus on a few other commitments before coming back full-time to my blog. Thank you to everyone that has supported me and I won't be gone forever. I will still be around on my social media sites!

Book Blogger Hop: July 9-12, 2010



This event is hosted by Jen over at Crazy-for-Books! This week we are getting to know our Book Blog Hoppers! For more information or to join the hop click on the Book Blogger Hop button to the right or click here!
This week's question:  Tell us about some of your favorite authors and why they are your favorites!
My answer: A couple of my favorite authors are Laurell K. Hamilton and Philippa Gregory. I love Hamilton because her books keep me wanting more and more and more! Gregory's writing is my favorite because it takes me to the time she is writing about and makes me feel like I am there. Her descriptions of the clothing and what they ate, etc., is just incredible!

Visiting from the Hop and I am a new follower. the only Phillipa Gregory book I have read it The Other Bolelyn Girl. I read it before seeing the movie and I was astonished at how much the movie left out. I was so very angry. The book was amazing though. Please check out my blog.
