Follow Friday and Book Blogger Hop














Welcome to my post for this week for Follow (my book blog) Friday hosted by Parajunkee and the Book Blogger Hop hosted by Crazy-For-Books.  Please go visit those sites for a huge list of great blogs to check out.!

Also, don't forget to check out my first ever giveaway here.

The Follow Friday question this week is:

What do you do besides reading / reviewing as a hobby??

I love to cook.  I also sew and have an embroidery machine -- I made a book bag for my secret santa! (She already got it, so I can say that.)  My husband and I have an RV, and we love to go camping with our dog as much as possible.  I post about all these other hobbies on my "other" blog here.

 The Book Blog Hop asks:

 "What very popular and hyped book in the blogosphere did you NOT enjoy and how did you feel about posting your review?"
I haven't been blogging that long, so there hasn't been any book that I really didn't like.  But I can pull one from the past that I could not get through, and it was pretty popular.  Philip Pullman's The Golden Compass. I keep telling myself I should go back and try it again, but I just really didn't enjoy trying it the first time, and now there's all those other books in my TBR . . .

I hope that everyone realizes that when I post a review it's my opinion, and everyone has different tastes in books, just like in every other aspect of life.  I never slam the author, I just say why it didn't suit my tastes.
Thanks for visiting.  Hope you enjoyed my blog and come back and visit often!

    I never read The Golden Compass. It never appealed to me.

  3. Hi,

    Popping in to return the favor for following me :)

    I also enjoying cooking and would sew if I had a machine (hand sewing = too much work :D )

  4. Old follower hopping by :) I agree wholeheartedly about reviewing a book based on your own opinion without slamming the writer. That is a respectful policy & I do the very same. Enjoy your weekend :)

  5. I love it! A question pertaining something other than books! Here's the
    short list of what I'm doing when I'm not reading:

    Cooking, gaming, gambling, drinking, smoking, golfing and sometimes even
    watching TV.

    I expound on all of the above at my blog. Follow me here -

  6. Old follower hopping through. I haven't read The Golden Compass, and maybe that is a good thing! LOL.

    Happy Reading!
