Book Blogger Hop #6 and Follow Friday #3



Okay, joining in to Book Blogger Hop by Crazy for Books.


This week's question is: How many books are currently in your To-Be-Read (TBR) pile?


Wow, I don't know the exact number. About a year and a half ago I did actually go through and count, and it was over 300 at that time. Now, since then, I've read some, added more, and even decided to give away some, so I'm not sure. Plus I have some egalleys waiting to be read as well. So I'm sure the number is still in between 200 and 300. I'll never run out of anything to read. If only I could retire right now and just spend all my time reading.






Next is Follow Friday hosted by Parajunkee. This is the 50th week of the Follow Friday, and there is a giveaway over at Parajunkee's site, so go on over and check it out!


This week's question is: Genre Wars! What's your favorite genre, and which book in that genre made it your favorite?


Honestly, right now YA, paranormal romance type are my favorite. And I really have to say it went back to when I first read Twilight by Stephenie Meyer and got sucked back into YA. Before that I'd been really into what I called Chick Lit, but soon after Twilight I got drawn into all things YA. So whatever you think of Twilight, it is a big pull for me.

  1. Hi, Lisa! Thanks for stopping by. I'm now returning the follow. I love your blog theme, by the way. The little dog in your header is cute (of course, I used to be a groomer, so I could be partial). You can't go wrong with Clockwork Angel. I actually like it better than The Mortal Instruments. I hope you have a great weekend.

  2. I have way too many books on my TBR list and TBR pile. All told that comes to about sixty books.

    Now here's the scary math: I read roughly one book per week - and sometimes two. But two to three books are being added to my TBR list every week.

    Stressful, right?

    Wrong!

    Hop on over to my blog - http://www.howardsherman.net and find out why.

  3. Hi, I'm just hopping on by! I also sometimes wish I could drop everything in life and just read all the time and possibly actually make it to the end of my 500-book to-read list. Too bad life doesn't let us do that, haha!

  9. Hopping through. Twilight is the biggest draw for me. It was what brought me to paranormal romance. No shame there!

  10. Twilight is similiar to Harry Potter to me in that both turn people on to a new genre but also on to reading as well. Great post. New follower :-)
