Book Blogger Hop (3) & Follow Friday (7)

Book Blogger Hop
Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee. Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jennifer of Crazy-For-Books.

Question for the hop: What book influenced or changed your life? How did it influence/change you?

Lyn: I have several books that change my life; Harry Potter series turn me into fantasy addict. Sophie's World turn me into philosophy lover, and Agatha Christie's The Big Four turn me into Christie's lover. But it all started with Huckleberry Finn. I always like reading since I was a little girl, my parents always give book as birthday present, but I never really became a book addict until I read Huckleberry Finn. Reading it gave so much information and open my eyes about many things I didn't know at that time.

Question for FF: What book(s) have you discovered lately from someone's book blog?

Plenty! Bloggers really open my eyes and help me discovering various interesting books out there. The Lying Game is one of the book I discovered from a blog and I turned out liking it. The Oracle of Stamboul is a book I want to read so badly after seeing a review in Reading Teen's blog.


WOW! That's all I can say when I realize we've gained more than 100 followers in a few days from giveaway hop alone. Thank you very much guys!
I do hope that you all will be actively commenting and reading our post as well, not just because of the giveaway. I can guarantee you we'll have more interesting reviews, features, and of course giveaways.

Perhaps some of you notice that we barely have any post in the last few days. Well, Mithee is currently having problem with her internet connection, Kay-c back to her dorm, and me, back to work again. But that doesn't mean we'll stop posting and reviewing and hopping. After we settle with our real life stuff, we'll be back full speed.

Sneak peak on what will happen in the future:

MOAR reviews! After all that's the main purpose of this blog. Three different characters and review styles in one blog, if you like YA, Mithee will satisfied your hunger, Kay-c also tend to read more YA and historical romance, while I have broader taste, ranging from YA, historical, sci-fi, humor, fantasy (of course). even literature. Yes, not every lit fan hate genre fic, vice versa.

Challenges! Beside our own Wordsworth Classics Reading Challenge, we also participate in 100+ Reading Challenge and 2011 Debut Authors Reading Challenge. We will post our progress so you can follow our success and... well, hopefully not, our failure.

Memes! Teaser Tuesday, Waiting on Wednesday, Follow Friday, and In my Mailbox are the memes we've joined. But we also have our own Guest Post Monday feature where we drag ask authors, bloggers, or anyone in book community to answers some of our questions about their life. Sometimes we even let them took over our blog.

Your favorite of all? Giveaways! After Mithee's participation in January's Reading Resolution Giveaway Hop, I will participate in February's Giveaway Hop (Followers Love Hop). Want some more? There will be Quarterly Comment Giveaways where you can gain extra entries by commenting our reviews. Still not enough? Don't worry, Orbit Books and I already prepare several giveaways for our devoted followers, keep stalking following us to find out more about the details!

This will probably come of something as a surprise but the book that changed/influenced my life (more than any other) is a non-fiction book. I know we all focus on novels and the fanciful fiction we love to read but The Four Work Week is the book that gets all the credit. I know the title sounds fictional but it really isn’t. Hop over to my blog and find out why – http://www.howardsherman.net

Happy Book Blogger Hop Day!

Hi There! I love your blog! I'm a new follower. Great answer to this weeks questions, I had a hard time answering it. There have been so many books that have influenced me. Great Review on If I Stay, too. I just finished that book myself. I hope you get a chance to check out my blog. www.crazy-bookworm.blogspot.com

Happy Hopping!

Hopping through. Harry Potter is a hugely influential series for me too. I was never an Agatha Christie fan when I had to read her for school. Maybe I'd like her better now.
Happy weekend!
