Friday Follow (4)


 
The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly event where bloggers and readers can find new blogs to follow. It's a neat idea for new bloggers (very much like myself) because it helps them connect with other bloggers and it gives them an opportunity to find blogs similar to theirs. I'm really excited about participating in this! If you're interested, go over to Crazy for Books :)

 
To join the fun and make now book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:

 

 
  1. Follow the Follow My Book Blog Friday Host { Parajunkee.com } and any one else you want to follow on the list
  2. Follow our Featured Bloggers - www.onceuponachapter.com
  3. Put your Blog name & URL in the Linky thing.
  4. Grab the button up there and place it in a post, this post is for people to find a place to say hi in your comments
  5. Follow Follow Follow as many as you can
  6. If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the Love...and the followers
  7. If you want to show the link list, just follow the link below the entries and copy and paste it within your post!
Hi everyone! It's Friday again! Let's start this fun weekend with another hop :) This week's BBH question is whether or not we listen to music while reading, and if we do, what our favorite thing to listen to is. I usually read while I'm on the bus on the way to school, or on my breaks between classes, so I don't usually listen to music. But when I'm at home reading, chilling out, I like to listen to some music to set the mood for the book. If the novel has a playlist (which I get from author websites), I listen to them and have them on loop. But when they don't, I use one of my personal playlists that I think would fit the novel well. What about you guys? Do you like listening to music while reading, or do you find it to be a distraction?

  4. Hi, just stopping by through the hop! I wish I could read on the bus but I get motion sick when I do :( Do you typically find that the playlists designed by the authors suit the book/reading experience?

  6. I'm just hopping through. I wanted to say thanks for following me and I am now following you! I was looking through some of your posts and really loved the one where you casted characters for The Hunger Games. Most of the people you put into the roles were pretty much right on in my opinion!

  23. Hey! I'm hopping over! I prefer reading in silence when I'm at home, but when I'm out and about, I'll listen to music to try to tune others out... lol.

    Anyways, thanks for checking out my blog and I've just become a follower of yours! ^.~

  26. hi there - thanks for stopping by my blog! yes you should read the iron fey books. i didn't like the 2nd one as much as the first but over all i'd still definitely recommend them. i'm about 2/3 done with strange angels so hopefully will post a review tomorrow sometime...i like it so far. it has a kickass heroine which i'm a total sucker for.

    you've reviewed a lot of YA books that aren't even on my radar...i can't wait to check some of these out! following you back.
