Book Blogger Hop: July 8th-11th & FF (25) & TGIF (8)

Book Blogger Hop
 Blogger Hop is hosted by Crazy-for-Books and is an awesome way to for book bloggers to interact and find each other. Such a wonderful idea! There's a new question every week that all the participating blogs have to answer.

This week actually is not a question but the chance to promote a Giveaway - but you can't promote your own.

This is quite a cool idea, so my blog to promote is: 'The Crazy Bookworm' who is Giving away a copy of one finished hard cover copy of 'The Day Before' by Lisa Schroeder. 
So hop on over and enter. :D

Follow Friday

Follow Friday is an opportunity to discover and follow other book related blogs! Want to join? Check it out at Parajunkee.

This week's question comes from Lisa @ Read. Breath. Relax

Q. Let's step away from besties...What is the worst book that you've ever read and actually finished?

My Answer: tough one, I honestly don't know. I try to finish every book I've started, and so there have been some bad ones that I fought my way through, but I tend to wipe it from my mind, too many good books to refill the space!


This meme is hosted by GReads!

This Friday's Question: 
Blogger Confession: What's the last book you could not finish? 
(or had a hard time finishing?) 
My Answer: The last book I didn't finish was 'Capt. Hook: The Adventures of a Notorious Youth by J.V. Hart. I tried to read it as I love most things to do with Peter Pan and Captain Hook, but this was just unbelievable and the writing style didn't grab me so I had to give up. But that was about a year ago. I tend not to give up on books, I try to fight through them, but this one conquered me.

 Happy Hopping, have a great weekend everyone!!!

Old follower stopping by! I had a hard time choosing a book that I didn't enjoy also! I finish every book, so I chose one that I had to read for school. Check out my answer on my blog!

Happy Friday!

I salute all the brave souls that soldier on to finish a bad book. I could never do that. I never have and I can’t imagine I ever will.

This week’s Follow Friday question is an excellent companion to last week’s Book Blogger Hop question.

Follow me back to my blog and read all about why I hardly ever start a bad book let alone finish one –

Read both my Book Blogger Hop post last week and my Follow Friday post this week and you’ll get the bigger picture of how my mind works. Don’t say I didn’t warn you! [grin]

Thank G-d It’s Follow Friday!

Hopping through. Too bad the Captain Hook book didn't work for you. It sounds interesting in theory.

Hi, I'm a new follower from the blog hop!

Picking a book you didn't like seems to be the hardest question out there right now for bloggers to answer ;)

I have my own giveaway ending this Thursday if you're interested in entering!
