Join the book blogger hop at Crazy for Books, a weekend blog hop providing a great opportunity for readers and bloggers to connect. This week's prompt comes from Angela at Library Girl Reads.
"What is the thing you like most about reading book blogs? Is it the reviews, author guest posts, articles, giveaways, or something else entirely?"
My answer is: I like the reviews most of all. I primarily read blogs to check out the reviews and see other people's opinions of books I've read and to find new books to read. But I also read blogs because I'm intrigued by the varied personalities of the bloggers. I like people who like books. And people who love books enough that they want to spend time telling the world about the books they've read...these are people I want to get to know better.
I also love to participate in the Literary Blog Hop hosted by The Blue Bookcase. This week's question, posed by Christina, is:
What is one of your literary pet peeves? Is there something that writers do that really sets your teeth on edge? Be specific, and give examples if you can.
I struggled with this. I'm not sure I have a pet peeve. Something can bug me in one book, but another writer can do the same thing and get away with it. It's all in the execution. I suppose one thing that tends to put me off is mystery/thriller writers who use child torture and mutilation as a way to build suspense or get the reader's attention or sympathy. If a psychopath is killing children, I usually don't read the book.
Join along in the hops. I'd love to hear your comments!
