Blog Hopping 3/30/2012

Welcome, fellow bloghoppers! You're looking at my personal blog, home to the rants and ramblings of an aspiring author. I've been out for a week or so, devoting my blog time to working on some guest posts instead, but those are done with, so I'm back on the trail. Reviews for Bonds of Fenris should start showing up next week, which I'm psyched about! And BTW, there are still ARCs of Bonds of Fenris available for book bloggers, so if you're interested. my e-mail's right there on the sidebar!

This week's ice-breaker for Feature & Follow:

"Do you read one book at a time or do you switch back and forth between two or more?"

One at a time. My time is often short, you see, and one is all that I can handle. Even if I had more time, however, I'd probably still do just one at a time. A lot of book bloggers read two or three books a week. More power to 'em for having the endurance, but I believe that a good book should be savored. Reading too fast is like devouring an ice cream sundae in one minute. You've rushed through the best part of your meal, and now you've probably got a headache, too.

And while we're on the subject, YES YES YES, I am working on getting my review blog back on track. Trust me, I'll have something new for you soon.

This week's ice-breaker for TGIF @ GReads:

"If you could gather up a handful of book blogger friends to spend a weekend away talking books, where would you go? Tell us about it."

Huh. Well, that's kind of a silly question, isn't it? I mean, if all we're going to be doing is hanging around talking books, then any place is as good as any other, since the fun is in the people we're spending time with. Honestly, I'd have them over at my place, because if we decide to go out some time, I know where the fun is. I live in the area, after all. I know the off-the-beaten path places where interesting things are. I know the great restaurants, and the scenic areas where writers can get inspiration. There's adventure everywhere, you just have to know where to look.

That's all for this week. Have fun hopping!


  1. Hi there :) just hopping through...

    I normally read a few books at a time but, I always savour every book if I like it :D

    Here is my choice...

    Feature & Follow

  2. I actually didn't answer this week's TGIF because I didn't know what to say, so your answer made me laugh! I thought of a bunch of exotic places, but then I was confused because it seemed as though we wouldn't be touring, just sitting inside talking about books!

  3. The purpose of this week's TGIF question was to think of a fun "retreat" for bloggers to attend. I know when I've visited things like ALA, a big topic that always gets mentioned is how we wish we could all go somewhere for a weekend to hang out.. even though events like ALA are fun, you don't get much time to really just "hang out" with other book bloggers. So no, the place doesn't have to be exotic. It can totally be anywhere! Just the idea of "getting away" & enjoying the company of other book bloggers :)

  4. I usually read only one book at a time, but I'm also a very fast reader. I did this odd test last month or something, when another fast-reader blogged about people who ask her how she's doing it. (She read 300 books or something last year, so about the same amount of books I did)

    There is a way to read books, still attentively, but you manage to read up to 1000 words a minute, or if you're a pro, even much more. I don't always read like that, and often savor books anyway, but I often read like that when scenes are getting boring. *grin* (But I only manage 800 words a minute if I'm lucky.. My excuse is that English is my second language. XD)

  5. I read one book at a time, listen to another book but never at the same time. :)

    When I saw Gingers meme topic I thought of tropical island and books and drinks! LOL!!
