Blog Hop with a Twist


Jen at Crazy-for-Books has added a twist to our favorite Friday activity! She's posting a question for fellow hoppers to answer so we can all get to know each other better

For the first week, I'm going to make it simple -  
Tell us your NAME and WHY YOU STARTED BLOGGING 

Hello hoppers! I'm Sarah and I started book blogging for a few reasons. In September of 2008 I was having a hell of a time with life in general and desired I would write in my blog(not this blog) every day to monitor my own personal growth. By New Years of 2009 I made one of my resolutions to read more, setting a goal of 24 books that year. It came as a natural effect that I start reviewing the books I was reading. When I really started to read hard core I moved all of my reviews to this lovely blog in September of 2009. I've loved that my fellow book bloggers are just as book-crazy as I am and it's given me a place to rave about the things I'm reading without talking my friends ear's off.

So that's my story. Thanks for Hopping by and if you're in the States Happy 4th of July!

Hi Sarah, here to say hi and I read about why you started blogging. 24 books a year is a good goal. I need to set one for myself too, to keep myself motivated!!! :)

Hello, found you at the hop. Just stopped by for a look see.
I think the hop is a marvelous way to meet bloggers both old and new. I am now following you.
I started blogging mainly for myself. It was just a place to keep all my reviews but somehow it has taken over my life.
I have a contest going on at http://lisaslovesbooksofcourse.blogspot.com/2010/06/first-contest-100-followers-birthday.html Hope you will stop by.

I'm hopping through today, for the first time in weeks. Life will settle down now that the move is behind us (from Omaha to just outside NYC).

Did you like Arcadia Falls? I enjoyed it, it was the first book my this author that I have read. I will read more from her. I love the detail in the book.

Have a wonderful holiday weekend!

Just stopping by from the Hop. Saw you liked Harry Potter and had to have a look. I am trying to finish rereading Order of the Phoenix right now, though it is slow going as I am in the middle of a couple of other books too.
