For What It's Worth

Blog Hop!!!!!!

Hey there! It's been a few weeks since I participated in the Friday hops. Welcome to For What It's Worth!

Hop around, leave a link - I hop back.


This week's hop moment of bunny zen.

The Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jen from Crazy For Books.

Question: How many books are in your TBR pile right now? Ughhhh....too many. I already had shelves and Kindle full of books to read, then I went to BEA and got at least 100 more.....then for some bizarre reason I just bought a few more books. I think we all know - it's a illness.

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee.

Question: What is your favorite genre and which book made it your favorite? I don't have a favorite genre. I get bored if I read too many similar books. Recently I have read two amazing dystopian novels though. Enclave by Ann Aguirre and Divergent by Veronica Roth


*To celebrate Parajunkee's 50th Follow Friday she is giving away one free blog design to FF participants! 

I also have a few contests if you're interested. You can win a copy of Graveminder by Melissa Marr (ends 6/19 international) & Whirlwind by Robin DeJarnett (ends 6/17 US only) 
Links for both are under my header!

Thanks for hopping by!

  2. What the hell is that thing masquerading as a bunny? I will have nightmares about that tonight!
    You are right of course...it's an illness. We all have more books than we need but we require the "thrill" of getting more. So our TBR piles are way out of control.
    As for genres I plumped for fantasy although I do enjoy different genres.

    And I got your surprise in the mail. I'm going to try and do it justice by participating in 'In My Mailbox' this week for the first time ever and devoting an entire post to it. My mind is swimming with ideas already!

  4. Hopping over from the Hop! I have to say first, I love your blog! Did you design it?
    A lot of people got hundreds of books from BEA. I didn't get to go this year but I'm definitely going next year. I really just want to see what it's like and meet some authors! haha.

  5. It is hard to just pick one. I love memoirs, chick lit, and mysteries. But like you, I get bored reading the same genre for too long.

  9. haha - I know the feeling. I don't have any more space on my bookshelves for books, but that doesn't mean I can exercise any self control when walking past a bookshop. I just have to go in and purchase!

  10. Oh good one with Enclave.

    I look at book buying as a fetish that I happen to love. I have a similar with shoes. Can't have too many of either! :D

    Happy Friday!

  11. I also had a hard time pinning down a favorite genre. And I agree, Divergent and Enclave were wonderful reads!

  15. I have the same illness. I can't stop buying books even though my tbr pile is getting to be over 200.

    I also really like the look of your blog. I think I've said that before.... Where did you get the background?

  19. OLD FOLLOWER....I only have 29 books waiting to be read...physical books that is. I hope I answered the question correctly.

    My favorite genre is historical fiction. I also like mysteries.

    Just stopping by to say hello and to take a look around.

    I am having a Father's Day giveaway on my blog if you would like to stop by....it ends at midnight tonight.
