Book Blogger Hop!!

It’s been a while since I’ve participated in the Book Blogger Hop sponsored by the lovely people at Crazy-For-Books!

This weeks question is: What are the next five books in your TBR (to-be-read) pile? And, don’t worry, you can change your mind and read something different – we won’t check! :)

This is tough one for me as I like to spontaneously just choose my next TBR book off my big (ok huge) pile.

I would say my next five are hopefully some cozy mysteries before I have to dig into some heavier reads for my book club.

  Assault with a Deadly Glue Gun by Lois Winston

 

 

 

 

  One Book in the Grave by Kate Carlisle

 

 

 

 

  Due or Die by Jenn McKinlay

 

 

 

 

  Clobbered  by Camembert by Avery Aames

 

 

 

 

  A Sheetcake Named Desire by Jacklyn Brady

 

 

 

 

And remember,

Books are Life,

Hosted by Crazy for Books . . . this weeks question is: 

“What is your favorite Halloween costume?
Even if you don’t celebrate, what kinds of costumes do you like?”
I don’t really enjoy Halloween that much and have never really celebrated it, but I do love the tiny, little kids who come trick or treating in the most adorable little costumes, like lady bugs, princesses, etc.  They are sooooo cute!!!

Happy Friday!  Friday means its time for the Book Blogger Hop by Crazy For Books! 

This week’s question is: 

“What is your favorite spooky book (i.e. mystery/suspense, thriller, ghost story, etc.)?”

I don’t read a lot of spooky, horror type books, but I remember reading the Flowers in the Attic series back in the day!  Freaky! 

Happy weekend!
And remember,

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! And stop back throughout the weekend to see all the new blogs that are added! We get over 200 links every week!!

RULES:

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

1. Post about the Hop on your blog (feel free to grab the logo at the top of the post!)

Spread the word about the book party! The more the merrier!

In your blog post, answer the following question (new question each week!).

This week’s question comes from Sue who blogs at Cookie’s Book Club! Thanks for submitting a question for our Hoppers, Sue! Be sure to visit her blog and tell her thank you!

What keeps you reading beyond the first few pages of a book, and what makes you want to stop reading a book and put it back on the shelf?

I will definitely keep reading a book if there is a gruesome murder in the first few pages (I admit, I love my serial killer books). 
If the book is a period piece or set in Britain/London, I will put it back immediately.  I just can’t get into it!

This Weeks Question
“Share your favorite post from the last month and tell us wy its close to your heart”
My favorite post would have to be my post about graduating with my Master’s degree at the end of May.  I worked hard and met many great people who I hope will be friends for years to come!  And now I am ready to get back to my life, enjoying a summer of concerts, grilling, and most importantly reading and getting back to my blog!
Happy weekend all!

This week’s question comes from Britta who blogs at I Like These Books:


 “What book-to-movie adaption have you most liked?  Which have you disliked?”

 I just can’t think of what my favorite was.  I do remember that I strongly disliked The Horse Whisperer by Nicholas Evans.  I hate when the movies take complete creative license with the material from the book – especially the ending and the Horse Whisperer ending was completely different.
