Book Blogger Hop & TGIF (1)

I've been experimenting with trying new memes this week. On Sunday I traded In My Mailbox for Books for Thought. On Tuesday I switched Teaser Tuesday with Top 10 Tuesday.

I couldn't decide which Friday meme to test out so I decided to do 2 of them!

Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop is a  weekly book party for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books, hosted by Jennifer at Crazy for Books.

“Share your favorite post from the last month and tell us why it’s close to your heart!”

My favourite post that I wrote in May is my review of Exposure by Therese Fowler. Exposure was the first novel I'd received from a publisher asking me to review it on my blog and I was over the moon about it! I never thought that I'd receive a request so soon after starting my blog and that it would jumpstart more publishers contacting me

My favourite post by one of my favourite bloggers is Do You Miss It? by Audrey at Holes In My Brain. She talks about how she misses not knowing about books months before they come out and being able to see a book at the library and go "Never heard of that before! I wonder what it's about." Check it out!


A book-question and weekly recap meme hosted by Ginger at GReads.

"Do you share your books with others? Who was the last person you sent a book to?"
 All the time! I love sharing books, especially ARCs with my book club friends. I also love to let me non-book-loving friends borrow my favourites to see if I can get them interested in the book world. A few days ago I gave my friend Sam my copes of Crash Test Love, Freaks & Revelations, and Rosie & Skate.

  1. Hopping by! I hope you have a wonderful weekend! :)

  2. I went to have a look at your Exposure review - it sounds great and that's fantastic to be asked to review it! :)

    I'm an old follower! :)

  3. I love the Book Blogger Hop. It's tons of fun and I always discover great new book blogs. Totally worth doing every week.

    Glad to have found your blog!

  4. I love ANY meme hosted by Ginger at GReads! She is just full of awesome! But yes, I love sharing books with others. It is a great feeling when you turn a non-reader into a book lover all because you lent them an awesome book!

  5. I hope to try out some new memes this summer. I love memes.

    I'm stopping by via the Hop. I always follow back.
