Book Blogger Hop January 14th edition

It's been a few weeks since I participated in the hop and I've got a couple of fun things to share, so I thought I'd hop back in this week.

The Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jennifer over at Crazy For Books.  

Each week she poses a book blogging related question to get us talking and jumping around to each others blogs.  This weeks question is genre related.

She asks why we read the particular genre that we do and what draws us to that genre?

I don't really read one particular genre, but a variety.  I like contemporary fiction, classics, chick lit, historical fiction, etc.  I think the thing that draws me to a story are the characters.  I really like to read about strong women.  The other thing that consistently drives me to pick up a book is a recommendation from someone who has similar taste in books.  I'll even venture outside my comfort zone on this one if its someone that I trust wouldn't steer me wrong.  

Now for the fun things that I've got going on.  I've got a giveaway going on right now that is ending soon.  Sign up for two of Tami Hoag's popular mysteries.  

The other thing that you might be interested in is the 2011 Audio Book Challenge.   If you are new to Audio Books or are a seasoned veteran, sign up.  It's going to be great fun.  We can discover some great books and narrators together.  If you haven't listened to Audio Books before, let me know and I can help you get started.  

Make sure you say hello so I can hop by your blog as well.  Have a fantastic weekend!

I like character driven fiction as well. I read more than one genre. But there are a few genres I don't read. Come see what I do and don't read.

Old follower hopping :) I also love reading a variety of books & will occasionally deek out of my comfort zone if something catches my attention. Of course, there are soooo many books to read within my comfort zone already :D Here's my post.

Book becomes our escape from reality regardless the genre. :) You can read my answer at Clandestine Sanctuary. Have a great weekend!

I'm doing the hop this week too....

I have decided to bail on the audio book I'm listening to, I figure.. since I have been listening all year and still have half th ebook left (no interest) it's time to bail.

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 and see for yourself.

The characters and their relationships with one another and the story drive me as well...across genres. AS a matter of fact, there are really only a couple of genres I'm not interested in at all...and wouldn't completely mark them off my you, I'd give even those a try if a respected reader, blogger recommended it :)

Characters definitely draw me to stories at times, too. But, unlike you, I find it really hard to read books that other recommend to me, even people I know really well and trust.

hopping by to say i agree friends that recommend books to me i feel compleled to read! check out my blog in your spare time?

I'm like you, an ecclectic reader. I was first attracted to cozy mysteries, and then I thought I prefered historicals, but found I don't like it if is laid on too thick.

I'm story driven over characters. I love a great storyteller. If I read a "heavy" book, I usually cleanse my palate with a "lightweight" one after.

Hopping through. I tend to be drawn to characters too. Although if the plot and/or setting is really interesting, I can deal with lackluster characters.
