Book Blogger Hop


The Blogger Hop, a weekly event to peruse and discover new blogs is hosted by Jennifer at Crazy for Books. Every week there is also a get to know you type question and this week the question is:

"In honor of Book Blogger Appreciation Week, let's take time this week to honor our favorite book bloggers and why we love them!"

Since I love Historical Fiction, most of the blogs I follow are Historical Fiction blogs. I started with Daphne at Tanzanite's Castle Full of Books. We "met" on Paperbackswap and she mentioned her blog there at one point so I checked it out and now read it all the time as she has the latest and greatest on all HF that is coming out. I looked over her blog roll and discovered Arleigh at Historical-Fiction, Lucy at Enchanted by Josephine, Marie at The Burton Review and Amy from Passages to the Past. Since then I have discovered many lovely blogs though a variety of sources but I love the blogs of these five ladies especially because I have discovered so many great reads and authors I've never heard of that now I have an entire room overflowing with books.

So those are my favorite blogs. On a side note, thank you for visiting my blog! I am hosting a giveaway an ARC of Dexter is Delicious by Jeff Lindsay (the latest of the novels that spawned the Showtime series). Feel free to enter in the post directly below this one if interested.
