Book Blogger Hop 4!

It's that time again! Time to do the hop!
The Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jenn at Crazy-for-Books!

A little about the hop from Jenn's blog:
In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love of the written word!  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 to read!  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 list!

This weeks question: 
Who is your favorite new-to-you author so far this year?

Well, that's hard to answer! I have a few:


  • Rebecca Maizel, author of Infinite Days
  • Melina Marchetta, author of Jellicoe Road
  • Julia Hoban, author of Willow
  • Maria V. Snyder author of the Poison Study.
I would read anything that any of those authors wrote, they are all so talented! Who's on your list?

If you are here from the hop, welcome! Please leave a comment with link to your blog so I can check it out!

  4. I loved The Poison Study. I am struggling with Jellicoe Road but I'm only 30 pages in. I loved her book Finnikin of the Rock though.
