Book Blogger Hop and Follow Friday

Book Blogger Hop
Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme held by Jennifer over at Crazy for Books.

This week's question is:

“How many books are currently in your To-Be-Read (TBR) Pile?”

My answer: I'm going off of my Goodreads since I put every TBR book in there since I always forget titles. At this point, I have about 70 books I am planning on reading. If that's shocking to you, it's shocking to me too! I am a huge book reader, but if you told me two years ago I would be having that big of a list, I'd laugh! But, now it seems like a small list and I have even more books that I'm waiting for and books that sometimes pop up.



Follow Friday is a weekly meme held by Parajunkee. This week is the 50th week of this feature and a lovely giveaway is happening over at her blog.

This week's question is:

Genre Wars! What's your favorite genre and which book in that genre made it your favorite?


My Answer: I love romance, whether it is in YA, Adult, or Paranormal form. I'm a hopeless romantic and can't read a book with no romance in it. I have many favorites of this genre and could list almost every book I've read with romance in it and say it is a favorite. But, I have to go with my favorite book, Starcrossed by Mark Schreiber. It's so intense and emotional and realistic, I can read it over and over and still cry and smile at the same scenes. Plus, Ben and Christy's relationship is so deep and complicated, it's a new twist on the age-old romance.


Tell me your answers and don't forget the giveaway over at Parajunkee!

Peace and Fangs,
Alisha

  1. I think I have roughly that much as well. I always have at least 20 to 30 in the begining of the year cause I ask my family for gift certificates to the bookstores for Christmas.

  3. I have a lot of books I want to read, but only about 12 physical books that are waiting on my bookshelf. I'm a new follower. Come on over to my site and enter to win a Kindle on my book launch of

  4. I love romance in everything I read as well. It just adds something to the story that I can't quite describe.

  5. 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.

  6. Hello. I'm your newest follower from Follow Friday. I agree. I like romances, especially of the paranormal persuasion. That is what a large chunk of my bookcase is made up of. Hope you are having a great start to your weekend. Happy reading!

  7. I love your little nail polish bottle divider and rating system. :) Very fun!

    70 books isn't too bad - I am sure I have over 100 sitting in my house to read. EEK!

  11. OLD FOLLOWER.

    I only counted the physical books I have on my shelf. I hope I have been answering the question correctly.

    I only have 29 to be read. Pretty manageable.

    Just stopping by to say hello and to take a look around.

    ONLY 24 hours left to enter.

    I am having a Father's Day giveaway on my blog if you would like to stop by.
