Book Blogger Hop

Happy Friday! These summer weeks sure seem to be going by fast. I can't believe it's almost August (and the long weekend here.) Only one more month until my husband heads back to work and my daughter heads off to Kindergarten! Got to make sure we really enjoy this month.

The Book Blogger Hop is hosted at Crazy For Books. It's a great way to meet other book bloggers as there are over 200 participants every Friday! If you have never done it before, check it out. If you are visiting from the hop, welcome!

Last week I came across a really cool blog through the hop. The name of the blog is Musings of a Bookshop Girl. She runs a secondhand bookshop with her mom (don't we all dream of that!) so not only does she review wonderful books, but she has great stories about what goes on at the bookshop. Definitely check that one out.

The question for this week's blog hop is "Who is your favourite 'new to you' author this year?"
My pick is going to be Carmen Reid. I picked up "The Personal Shopper" this year, really enjoyed it, and was thrilled to find out that it's a series of 4 books with the 5th due out next year.

I must mention two other authors who I will be reading more of - Sophie Hannah who writes mysteries/thrillers and Tiffany L. Warren who writes Urban Christian fiction.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and happy hopping!

  8. It's so exciting to find a new author who has written a series or even several books. Collecting a series is more fun. Hope you enjoy Carmen Reid's series. Have a great weekend.
