Book Blogger Hop ~ Cover Judge

book-blogger-hop

The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. Each week poses a book-related question. The hop starts on Friday and ends on Thursday. The purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers.


Would you or do you choose a book solely on the cover? (submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver’s Reviews)

Yes. We totally cover judge. Don’t lie.

However, I always read the synopsis as well. If I don’t get the “Ooooo, yes!” feels from the synopsis, it’s a mixed bag whether I will pick it up or not.

1.Which is your favourite library (or which would you most like to visit)? (submitted by Nicki @ Nicki J. Markus/Asta Idonea) 2. How often do you visit the library? (submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver’s Reviews)

I would really like to visit the New York City public library. My school’s library aide has been there twice in the past 3-4 years and I want to go have that experience myself.

I visit my school library every two weeks. I don’t go to the public libraries anymore. I never have the time with being at school so late in the evenings every day. On the weekends, I’m just a sloth soaking up the lazy and recharging.

Have you ever been called a “book nerd?” If so, how did you react? (submitted by Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer)

I have been called a book nerd, by our school’s library aide. We have gone to several Texas Teen Book Festivals together and a few other bookish events. It is a positive thing when we talk about being book nerds because we are talking about our love for books and sharing that with our kids and trying to impart that same love to them…or at least spark some interest in books.

Unpopular Bookish Opinions

Looking for Alaska – A “Bad” Novel

My middle school had the novel Detour for Emmy, about a girl who winds up pregnant her freshman year of high school.  It was a book checked out back to back. It never stayed on the shelves. We read this in middle school.

Looking for Alaska is no different. Adults freak out about one scene in the book. If analyzed closely, the scene is a paradoxically juxtaposed with another scene in which what Alaska taught Pudge doesn’t end up working out very well at all. And that’s the end of it. It died right there. This is a book written about high school students doing high school-age things.

Vampires and Werewolves – OOO LA LA! 

Vampires and werewolves do not make books better. In fact, that’s just a bandwagon trend to sell books. It’s its own form of trashy novels. I can’t even with them. Get out.

Annotating Your Books is BAD! 

UHM. The greatest minds of all annotate things from legal briefs and contracts to their own works. What is the issue here, people? Responding and interacting with your text is the sign of a sophisticated reader. It’s your book. It’s their book. Why are you all bent out of shape about what someone else does with their own property? Go press your pages or something.

Hype Hype Hype 

I am so over the “popular” series that roll out. They all look the same to me with such similar or synonymous titles and covers. Sadly, not one single one of them piqued my curiosity enough to want to read.

Who are some characters you identify with?

What’s the oldest work (by publication date) you’ve read? (submitted by Nicki @ Nicki J. Markus/Asta Idonea)

I think the oldest publication I’ve read is Pride & Prejudice. I’m trying to recall all the classics I’ve read, and that is the oldest one…I think. I didn’t enjoy it as much as so many others. I’ve thought about re-reading it and seeing what I think now that I’m older, but I’m really not that interested.

Books From My Favorite Genre

It shouldn’t come as any surprise by looking at the majority of books I review that my favorite genre is romance.
