Hop around the Block!

Hi everyone! Hope you've all had a great week and are ready for a great hop! As always, thanks to the amazing Jennifer at Crazy-For Books for hosting the Hop!
Book Blogger Hop

This week Jennifer asks us to honor some of our favorite bloggers.
For this I would like to ask everyone to visit Jillian at Random Ramblings for her amazing reviews and picture posts, Becky at Page Turners for everything, seriously, I love Page Turners and Kelly from Fresh Off the Shelf for her amazing historical fiction reviews and insight.

Now for my weekly recap:
I've had a pretty good week. I'm back to reading at a normal pace, which is great after the past few weeks of moving craziness. I finished Running with Scissor's and started reading The Cid for class and Coco Chanel and Igor Stravinsky for a last summer fling read. I'm really excited to get more into the Coco, but The Cid is already proving more difficult than anticipated and I hate the class I'm reading it for.

I also created a twitter account for Loving Books this week. You can look at my last post or search twitter for LovingB00ks if your interested.

Lastly, My roommate and I have started a side blog project called Camp or Crap, all about bad movies.

This has been a real big self promotion post so I'll end things now. Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend as we hop dangerously close to fall!

Glad you are getting settled. It takes a while to feel like you a home - we have been in our new house for almost 3 months now and it finally feels like I was meant to be here.

Have a great weekend!

It's a nice feeling when things finally start to settle down after a move.

Thank you for dropping by.

Happy Hopping!

Thanks for hopping by my blog! I'm here to repay the favor! It looks like some of the books I've read overlap with the ones you have. I recently finished Running With Scissors, too - do you know that the brother of the author (the one with Asperger's) wrote a memoir, too? It's called Look Me in the Eye, and it's quite good.

Red said...

Already a follower and I'll be checking out your Camp or Crap blog as well. Awesome blog idea, by the way!

Thanks for hopping by earlier, Sarah. Hope you have a wonderful week!

There's nothing wrong with self-promotion on your on blog. Running with Scissors sounds like one to check out.

Elizabeth said...

Hopping by...have a fun hop this weekend.

Hi! Thanks for checking out my blog! Scrolling through your list of 2010 books, I think we have very similar tastes and I'm now a new follower. As you liked the Gothic feel to 'The Thirteenth Tale,' Carlos Ruiz Zafon's novels are dense with this style, if you haven't already read them!

Hello, I'm stopping by on the blog hop. I'm about to become your newest follower! Hope you have a great weekend.

Hi! A return hop here - your blog is great and I look forward to reading some more of your reviews in the future :)

jewelknits said...

Thanks for introducing me to at least TWO new blogs that I hadn't seen! I love the book blogging community; it's so cool to know that there are so many of us willing to share our reading experiences! Thanks for stopping by for the hop!

And YOU sound like a busy busy bee! I don't see how you do it, since it's all I can do to try to post timely (within two weeks of reading) reviews and work and take care of my family! :)
