Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop
The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly hop hosted by Crazy-for-Books and is a way for bloggers to find other great blogs to read and make new friends in the blogging world.

This week's question is:
Post a link to a favorite post or book review that you have written in the last 3 months.

My response:
I have two favorites I think.  I really loved reading The Gendarme, and I think I did a pretty good job describing its greatness in my review, which is here.  But I also really like my review of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (if nothing else but for the awesome SAAB quotes I was able to supply at the end!).  I'm excited to start hopping to all the blogs I follow and seeing what you've all posted!  I also can't wait to get out there and discover some new blogs!

I realize also that I have posted pretty much nothing all week!  I am so sorry and I feel like a failure.  I have a review done of The Jungle which I'll probably end up posting later today.  School has just been getting most of my time, and I've been exhausted and feeling a bit under the weather (which is, ya know, what happens when it's in the 90s one week and then the next it's in the 50s and 60s!), and I was barely on the Internet this whole week.  I did get quite a bit of reading and knitting done though :) 

Hope everyone has a really awesome weekend!  Have any plans??  I'm taking Gramma to dialysis tomorrow, which I've learned to love, not only because Gramma feels way better because of it, and I get to spend time in the car with her, but I also use the 3 to 4 hours in between dropping her off and picking her up to just catch up on my reading and blogging and blog visiting.  Sunday is probably going to be lazy!  I'm so tired right now that I'm wondering if maybe I'm anemic.  (I'm not....but I always do wonder when I get this exhausted!)

Bon weekend!


  1. Ah. Yes, enjoy your time with your grandma. I miss my grandmas terribly.

    And don't be sad because you only posted once this week. Once a week is good!

  2. I am a regular reader just dropping by to say hi on the hop.

    I am having my first ever giveaway - come take a look!


  3. Visiting from the Hop! I need to read The Girl with Tatoo... so many people love it. I tried the first chapter and couldn't get through it but I know I just need to keep going. Enjoyed reading your review!

  4. I get really tired sometimes too! Great time to be lazy :) Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by my blog.

  5. Thank you all for stopping by! Bookstop-the first chapter for me was the worst! It was too technical or economical or something. After that it got really good!
