For What It's Worth

Thursday, September 9, 2010

And I'm hopping......



First off - yes that's a real rabbit - an Angora. It just makes me laugh so here it is - hope it gives you a chuckle or two also!


The Blog Hop is hosted by Jen from Crazy For Books!



This weeks blog hop question is: Post a link to a favorite post or book review that you have written in the past three months. My review for Bring on the Night by Jeri Smith-Ready. This is not so much my favorite review but it was the hardest to write.  I was one of just a few bloggers given an ARC to this book but it is so twisty - so much of a game changer for the series that I had a difficult time writing a review that didn't spill the "BIG EVENT" of which I was sworn to secrecy and still try to get people to want to read the book. Add in that Jeri is one of my favorite authors and I loved the book....well, it took me over a week to write. Most of my favorite reviews were written well over three months ago so I won't link them here, but if you want to check them out in the archive they are: Willow, Split and Plucker and a few guest reviews - my hubby's review of Mockingjay and Tiger Holland's Sonnet for Team Peeta (you can find Tiger's post in the "Team Peeta" tag cloud on my sidebar.....along with all my Team Peeta quotes)



Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee (she also designed my gorgeous header btw)

Parajunkee's question is: e-book or print? Answer - Both. If it's a series I love or I'm pretty sure it's something I'll like I buy the book. I like to own my favorites and be able to flip to my favorite passages whenever I want. You just can't do that with an e-book. However I have a kindle and an iPad and I have read many books I wouldn't have otherwise because they are either free or cheap in that format. It has also helped make room on the bookshelves!

    It takes me ages to write a review as well, and then I spend the next day or two stressing over it!
