Book Blogger Hop

Welcome to the Book Blogger Hop!

Hashtag: #BookBloggerHop

Book Blogger Hop is the creation of Jen from Crazy for Books. Since October, the weekly hop has been hosted by a variety of book bloggers all across the globe and for the next two weeks, the hop is visiting Anglers Rest!

So, without further ado....

Question - Apart from being readers, many of us collect books on a specific subject or by a particular author. What books or which author do you collect?

It's been quite some time since I've participated in the book blogger hop. Somehow, Friday always seems to slip away from me and then I'm thinking about other things. But I keep meaning to get back to hopping. So, my answer:
There are a couple of authors whose books I collect, mainly favorite historical fiction writers. Oddly enough, the books I collect most avidly are historical mysteries- even though I don't very often read mysteries. But I am addicted to Margaret Frazer. In particular, I love the Joliffe series, but I read the Dame Frevisse books too (partly because I'm hoping Joliffe will show up.)  I also have been following Lindsey Davis's Falco series for years and years.

I collect other books too. Medieval history is one topic. I'll stop there. My collections get pretty random after that.

If you want to join in the hop, visit Anglers Rest to link up your own post.  Link back YOUR Friday Book Blogger post and then try to visit at least 3 other sites and comment - hops are a great opportunity to meet new bloggers!


  1. Historical fiction is a popular answer.

    Thanks for stopping by mine :)

  2. I like historical mysteries too and the Falco series is great.

  3. I'm not a huge mystery person although I do own a couple mysteries myself... not historical though. My bookshelf tends to be all over the place in genre but they all have romance in them.

  4. I love historical fiction too and mystery titles, but do not collect them per say.

    Happy Hopping!!

  5. I like historical fiction too. I don't collect many books though. Thanks for stopping by my site!

  6. I would be on an episode of hoarders if I collected all of the great books, especially historical mysteries that I have read. I do keep my very very favorites though. One I am definitely keeping is one that I just finished reading, "Shadow of the Sun" by Merrie P. Wycoff- I could definitely read it over and over.
