Book Blogger Hop! July 30-August 2

Book Blogger Hop
The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly event hosted over aCrazy-for-Books where "book bloggers and readers can connect to find new blogs to read, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books!" It lasts Friday-Monday each week, so if you don't have time to join today, you can still join later. It's easy to participate! Then take some time to visit blogs listed on the Hop. If you start following someone through the Book Blogger Hop, leave them a comment and let them know! 


Question of the week:
Who is your favorite new-to-you author so far this year? 


This will probably not come as a surprise to those of you who have followed my blog for awhile, but the answer is...John Green. I had heard of him before this year since he is a local author, but it wasn't until early 2010 that I actually picked up his novels and became a huge fan of his writing. (Click on the book titles to read my reviews.)


My absolute favorite novel of his is Looking for Alaska

I also enjoyed Paper Towns...



I also had the opportunity to meet John Green and David Levithan in Indianapolis at a book signing. They wrote Will Grayson, Will Grayson together. It's a great read! 

Any other John Green fans out there? Any Nerdfighters? DFTBA!

I tried reading An Abundance of Katherines and just could not get into it. I'm not sure why. I've seen Green's videos and he seems funny but I just couldn't get into his book. Anywho, just hopping over to check out your post!
