Friday Hops

This blogger hop was created by Jennifer at Crazy for Books.

2. Visit other blogs in the Linky List! Make new friends! Follow new book bloggers! Talk about books! Rave about authors! (Please do not leave your link and not visit other blogs - it's just not cool and not in the spirit of the Hop!)
3. Post about the Hop on your blog! Spread the word about the book party! The more the merrier!
4. In your blog post, answer the following question (new question each week!):

Let’s talk crazy book titles! Highlight one or two (or as many as you like!) titles in your personal collection that have the most interesting titles! If you can’t find any, feel free to find one on the internet!

MY ANSWER: There's this one book that I've been seeing lately. The title is quite the mouthful:
Another one that's not super crazy, but always gets me going on the poem is Amelia Atwater-Rhodes' debut In the Forests of the Night. Every time I read the title it comes out in a rhythm in my head like for poetry when you try to notice the beats.

This week's question is: How has your reading habits changed since you were a teen? or If you are still a teen what new genres are you in love with currently?

MY ANSWER: It hasn't! When I was a teen I would sit at Borders for hours scouring the YA shelves looking for a good paranormal read! After I read Amelia's Demon in my View, I was hooked. Of course back then I did read a few YA contemporaries, that part of me has changed. I hardly ever read any contemporaries anymore. A few mysteries or fantasy novels that don't have a lot of paranormal elements, but I have always been and will always be a paranormal girl!

  1. I LOVE PNR, but enjoy YA contemporary also. In fact, I was on a bit of a YA bender recently :-) Now it's back to PNR and thriller. Happy Friday! Old follower, too ;-)

    I agree, contemporary isn't as much fun as the paranormal.

  7. "Tyger, tyger, burning bright,
    In the forests of the night,
    What immortal hand or eye
    dare frame thy fearful symmetry?"

    The title's from William Blake's poem, Tyger, Tyger. :-)

  9. Like I say, I was a teen so long ago I can't recall how my habits were different. Maybe I have always liked spicy stuff. My parents kept a lid on what I read, usually right when I was getting to a good part one of them would have a bad day and take my book away.

  12. Love the titles you picked! I always love when book titles are from songs or poems - it adds something to the overall effect and usually makes me want to read the book more!

  14. I easily came up with five crazy book titles just by taking a fast look at my bookshelf.

    All five come from the same book series. Can you guess which series it is?

    Here’s a hint – The book series is a trilogy in five parts.

    Hop on over to my blog for the answer – http://www.howardsherman.net

  17. Statistical Probability? I'd say pretty low. Zero, really.

    But a very clever title.

    I'd love to have you stop by my blog and take a look at my post, The Hop: Reading a Jigsaw Puzzle. And don't forget to sign up for the Readerbuzz August Giveaway!

  18. Hopping through. So cool that you've always been into paranormal. I didn't get into it until after Twilight.

  19. Great answer! I think The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight is a crazy title too! It's also very cool that you read like this is as a teen too!
