Book Blogger Hop & Follow Friday

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

Here are the rules:
1. Enter your book blog link in the Linky List below (be sure to include how long you've been blogging and what genres you review!). If you post about the Hop on your blog, please link directly to your Hop post (don't forget to answer this week's question - see below!).
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!):

"Tell us about one of your posts from this week and give us a link so we can read it (review or otherwise)!"

I guess I'll go with the post I wrote yesterday for Losing Faith. It was a different kind of book for me with absolutely nothing supernatural. Normally this kind of book wouldn't even make the TBR pile but since I won it in a contest and it sounded interesting enough, I thought I would give it a try.

The lack of supernatural elements didn't detract from the story, for there was a pretty good mystery going on. And I liked the character's growth from her being a little selfish to someone more caring. And like I said the mystery elements were really good. Here's my review.

This week's question is: What is your favorite romance hero-type? Stereotype wise. Do you like the strong silent type or the brute macho man?

Hmm...I'm not much for the brute macho type, so I guess the strong silent type it more my fave. Although not completely silent. I like him to have a bit of personality going on, some sort of flavor; snarky, considerate...just some sort of trait that makes him stand out and be really endearing as a reader. So basically some sort of strong silent type, but not fully silent and focusing on another positive trait.


  1. I usually read supernatural books too. I might have to check out Losing Faith since you liked it so much. :)
