Book Blogger Hop July 9 - 12

In the spirit of the Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and find new blogs that we may be missing out on! This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books! It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs that they may not know existed! So, grab the logo, post about the Hop on your blog, and start HOPPING through the list of blogs that are posted in the Linky at Crazy-For-Books!!

The Hop lasts Friday-Monday every week, so if you don't have time to Hop today, come back later and join the fun! This is a weekly event!

Your blog should have content related to books, including, but not limited to book reviews.

Make sure you hop on over to Crazy-For-Books so that you can find some great blogs like I have done! You won't be disappointed.

This week's question: Tell us about some of your favorite authors and why they are your favorites!

Hm. Some of my favorites, eh? That's always such a tough one. First, I have to say that I think my favorites change with my mood, so on any given day you might get a completely different response. So here they are today:

Stephen King -- he's always changing and evolving his style. In truth, I'm always blown away

Mo Hayder -- intense and shocking, but an completely amazing talent.

Joanne Harris -- ever since Five Quarters of the Orange, I have been in love with Harris's work.

Deanna Raybourn -- one of the few authors today who is writing what I consider to be pretty traditional gothic fiction, and I LOVE gothic fiction

Harlan Coben -- I have to have each new book. Have to! And he's mastered the art of the page turner.

Alexandra Sokoloff -- I love what she's doing, mixing genres, surprising readers with something new each time.

Blog hopping in!

Great list of authors. My wife is a huge Harlan Coben fan as well. She went to see him as a signing a few years ago and took a bottle of yoo-hoo for him to sign. He got a kick out of it and obliged her.

Good to know ya!

That's fantastic, Brian! I have to have a Yoo-Hoo every time I start a new Coben book!

My husband likes Stephen King too but for scary I prefer John Saul.

Hopping over from the book blog hop.

I stopped by your blog from the hop. I like Deanna Raybourn too. I've only read a couple, but I plan to read more. I look forward to reading your reviews. Stop by my blog if you can. Have a great weekend.

Thanks so much, Becky. I adore classic Gothic fiction too, and I don't think you could have paid me a higher compliment. Glad you're enjoying the books!
