Book Blogger Hop - Book Blogs

Welcome to Tea Time with Marce

It is Book Blogger Hop Time.  Thank you Jennifer for Hosting such a fun networking meme.  Go over to join this week at Crazy For Books

This week's question comes from Angela who blogs at Library Girl Reads:
 "What is the thing you like most about reading book blogs?  Is it the reviews, author guest posts, articles, giveaways, or something else entirely?"
I enjoy reviews the most.  The 2nd would be lists, favourite list, themed lists etc that are book related. 
I enjoy trying to find other blogs with similar interest so when I find a blog that has there reviews listed, I spend time there reading and finding out if our views are similar.
So far I have to say I haven't really enjoyed Author Guest posts, they are just ok to me, I can think of 3 from different blogs that I have enjoyed but maybe that was because I was interested in that author.
Most giveaways are not international so that is not a huge interest for me and even when it is I only enter if I really would like the giveaway.
The ultimate is really just networking, I enjoy that overall part of the Book Blogging Community.
Have a great weekend.
Please take a moment to participate in my Poll - How should I organise my reviews?


  1. I love finding new authors and books! I also love hearing what bloggers thought about books I have read and loved. I'm already a follower. My hop is at Coffee Table Press

  2. Hello, I stopped by your delightful blog.

  3. I like reading the review the most too.

  4. I love to enter the giveaways. It's always exciting to be exposed to new books with the possibility of getting to read them.

  5. I like making and reading lists too. Here is why I read book blogs. Happy blog hop!

  6. Hello! I am a new follower from the hop. I am glad I found your great blog. One important reason I love to read my fellow book bloggers is to meet new people that share the same interest and at the same time discover new authors or books. You can find me here

    Happy Holidays and Happy Reading

  7. Hi! I'm a new follower from the Hop! I love to read other bloggers' reviews and meet other people with similar interests.

    Have a great Hop! Thanks for stopping by The Enchanted Book.


  8. I get recommendations on authors totally new to me, book recommendations and I like the camaraderie of the bloggers!

    Btw I am having my first giveaway on my blog.A gift card sponsored by CSN Stores. please do enter!

  9. I enjoy reviews if I like the genre. So I'm more attracted to fiction/mystery/romance book blogs rather than sci-fi/fantasy book blogs.

    I love lists. I'm like you, I compare a lot.

    I agree with you, guest posts aren't my favorite unless they are filled with really great writing tips.

    I live in Mexico so giveaways and contests are a no-go for me as well.

    And, the networking, meeting new bloggers and writers is the best! I love seeing how the writing community and readers are changing with the times. I love relating to people who have the same commitments and situations.


  10. I really like your blog name and colors.

    Stop by my blog to see my answer to this week's question.

    I have a contest going on as away SMALL ISLAND by Andrea Levy.

  11. I really like lists too. I like writing them and reading them. There's just something about lists that gets me excited. :)

  12. I love being introduced to new books by other book lovers!

  13. Already a follower! Just hopping by to say hello! It’s nice to see other book blogs and read the answers on the question of the week!

    Here’s my post.
    I’m having a 14-day blog event with lots of giveaways! I hope you drop by. Thanks!

  14. too...i like to see what book others are reading and whether it's good or not.

    Agree with you on the giveaways part. Most are not internationla thus not applucable for me.

    Have a nice weekend :D

  15. I like reviews as well as posts on reading, book lists, library loot posts, etc. Heck, I just like reading book blogs :)

  16. I like the book reviews & giveaways. I have added so many books TBR this year I may never get caught up! :)
