Book Blogger Hop / Follow Friday #3

Book Blogger Hop





Follow Friday is a meme hosted by Parajunkee, where people spread the book love by following around the blogosphere.

Book Blogger Hop is a meme hosted by Jennifer at Crazy-For-Books, where book bloggers can "connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books!"


Question of the Week (Follow Friday): What is your favorite brick and mortar bookstore?

I don't really have a favourite bookstore - but I love my school library the most. They're constantly stocked with the latest reads, and the best thing is, it's completely free to read the books you love.
The librarian is also super nice.


Question of the Week (Blog Hop): Do you ever judge a book by it's cover?
Sadly...yes! I'll give you 2 examples of where it ended badly: 
A rather unfortunate case with Fallen by Lauren Kate, whose cover was stunningly beautiful, but the book less so. Read my review here.
And then, I had the misjudgement not to read Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher because of the bland cover, but to my surprise, the book was absolutely engrossing.

Leave a comment below so I can check out your blog and follow, and please stop by and have a look at a couple of my reviews in the sidebar. ;)

Hey Tina, just hopping by! I know, the cover of Fallen is gorgeous but I have heard that a lot of people were disappointed with the book (personally, I haven't ventured to try it yet...)
