Book Blogger Hop & Follow Friday (2).

Book Blogger Hop

I came across the Hop and Follow Friday while I was blog hopping - how appropriate! - and decided to join in on the fun.

The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly thing going on over at Crazy-for-Books. Follow My Book Blog Friday is hosted by Parajunkee. If you're a new blogger, like I am, or have been blogging for a while, stop by the sites and get involved!


Weekly question: How many books do you have on your 'to be read shelf’?

Well, in actuality, there's no shelf. Just Barnes and Noble bags scattered on the floor of my room - it's not the cleanest way to keep track of my books, but it's my own system.

I have about 3 books on my 'to be read' list (I don't like to get backed up on my reading):

Ballad: A Gathering of Faerie by Maggie Stiefvater.

The Half-life of Planets by Emily Franklin and Brendan Halpin.

Reading Like a Writer: A Guide for People Who Love Books and for Those Who Want to Write Them (P.S.) by Francine Prose.

Of course, there are plenty of school books I should also be reading, but those aren't worth listing.



  1. I'd like to read Ballad too. I've heard great things about it and I really liked Lament.

  2. I'm a new follower via Follow Me Friday. I love finding people who are sticklers about grammar. I look forward to reading more on your blog!

  3. Are you planning on reviewing Ballad because it's something I've been debating reading. I love Shiver but I'm just not sure. Have a good hop!

  6. Happy Friday!!!--Stopping by from the hop!--Old follower!!! (within the last two hops) :)

    my tbr number is a little high right now, but to be fair, I'm also including all the classics and such that I'd like to read "someday." The actual pile on my desk is much smaller ;)

  18. Ballad's an interesting book. I'll be looking forward to your review. The name of the author of the writing book made me laugh a bit at the unintentional pun but I'm weird like that. I'm curious about the school books though. What's your major or if you're in Grad school, what is that you are taking?

  19. Cute site.

    Love this blog hopping.
