Blog Hop #2 - January 14



In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and find new book-related blogs that we may be missing out on! This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books! It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs that they may not know existed!

Each week, participating blogs are asked questions to post and answer on their websites.

This week's question

"Why do you read the genre that you do? 
What draws you to it?"

I like to read young adult simply because I love everything about it. I love the stories these amazing authors come up with. The creatures the create, the different personalities, the different adventures they embark on. This genre (like many others) requires a great imagination, it gives the mind good exercise! I love the cover designs for this genre, too. They are literally works of art. And on top of all that, I love that some of my favorite titles are becoming movies! Ooh, and I love the way they all look on my bookcases! It's very satisfying! I don't think there is one thing I don't love about YA!!!

Thank guys!

Hi, stopping by via the hop. I'm a new follower.
I enjoy reading YA books as well. I like to read about the first love and adventures in those books.


Have a nice weekend.

Just popping in via the hop to say hi! I'm a huge young adult fan as well so I'm glad to have found your blog. I'm dying for the release of City of Fallen Angels as well, that one can't come out soon enough! I'm a new follower here and I hope you have a great weekend:)

Here I am hopping on by...

I went all over the map with this question on my blog. I read and enjoy almost every genre of fiction out there. There’s no way I could just pick one.

So I talked about all of them. Even romance fiction (sort of)! I invite you to hop over to my blog at http://www.howardsherman.net and see for yourself.

Just hopping through.... I love your answer - loving everything about YA - wish I would have thought about that :) I have to admit that I really enjoy the worlds that YA authors are able to create and how easily it is for me to escape in them. And I agree with your comment about the covers - they are great and the best around :)

Hopping through. I've got to agree with you on the YA artwork. I swear, some of that stuff needs to be framed and displayed in a museum! That'd definitely make kids more interested in the arts, dontcha think? Hope you have a great weekend!
