Book Blogger Hop (9/9-9/12) & Follow Friday #62


Book Blogger HopBook Blogger Hop is hosted by Jennifer (Crazy For Books)The Hop lasts Friday-Monday every week. So sign up and join the hop.

Background on the Hop (by Jennifer/Crazy for Books)
In March of 2010, in response to what I thought was a void in the book blogging community, I started the Book Blogger Hop. I loved all of the #FF (Friday Follow) tweets on Twitter, where everyone spreads love to their favorite people in order to help them gain new followers. So I thought to myself – “How cool would it be to have something like that where fellow book bloggers could come and find new book blogs to follow, find new books to read, and gain more exposure for our blogs?” This CRAZY idea became the Book Blogger Hop!
This Week's Question:
Most of us primarily read one genre of books, with others sprinkled. If authors stopped writing that genre, what genre would you start reading? Or would you give up reading completely if you couldn't read that genre anymore?


My Answer:
My favorite genre is Mystery. I can't live without mystery. It is the only genre I never get bore of.
Okay, if mystery fiction is wiped out from the world that would be terrible. No matter what genre I pick, I wouldn't stick with it for a long time. I would get bore of it altogether. Although I wouldn't give up reading but I would never be that bookaholic anymore.

Recently Reviewed:
Fixing Cupid by Cristian YoungMiller (comedy, romance)
Only The Lonely by Laura Dower (pre-teens, children's fiction)
Happy Follow Friday!

This Week's Question:

Have you ever wanted a villain to win at the end of a story? If so which one?


My Answer:

I happens a lot of time that I secretly back the villain, or the other guy, to win in a novel. It's Heathcliff from Wuthering Heights. Catherine could have simply married him instead of choosing Edgar and ruining her, Heathcliff's, and Edgar's life.

  1. This happens for me a lot too! Or sometimes when there's a love triangle and I want the other guy to be the one she picks..

  3. LOL Kero. I never thought about it from a love triangle perspective. Usually because the other guy isn't necessarily evil :)

  6. Please don’t be shocked but this week I’ve got a straightforward, cut and dried answer to this week’s question... for a change!

    Root for villains? No way, no how. Why am I being so narrow minded? Follow me back to my blog and find out why – http://www.howardsherman.net

    Thank God it’s Follow Friday!

  11. It seems my guy is never the one that gets picked. I guess it's cause I always like the darker choice.
