Book Blogger Hop


Again I’m taking part in the Book Blogger Hop, which is a great event taking place every week that helps book blogggers to find one another. To have a look just click the picture. If you’re here from over there welcome! I hope you enjoy looking around, feel free to comment anywhere and pop in to say hi here- I promise to visit your blog in return.

As usual I will be posting my best finds on Monday.

Over the last couple of weeks Jennifer has been asking questions so we can get to know each other better this week she’s asking about our favourite authors and why they are our favourites.

I have a few favourites. JK Rowling because I just love the Harry Potter books, they completely take you into a different world- it’s escapism, and it’s what really brought me to the online world (for more see my me and books section). Jasper Fforde because his books are so clever, there are all types of┬áreferences┬áthat readers like us will appreciate, plus his books are funny and exciting. Sebastian Fawkes because he can really take you into another time and get inside another person’s head. Birdsong remains one of my favourite historical fiction books even though I read it when I was back in school, and Engleby actually made me like a potential murderer. Haruki Murakami, because his writing is so beautiful that it’s almost poetic and his stories are like nothing I’ve ever read before.
