Getting to Know You Blog Hop

November 15, 2014 Uncategorized 43


Thanks to the lovely ladies at Cuddlebuggery for hosting this event!

I’m not usually a blog host participant but this one was just too fun to pass up! I’m always interested in learning more about other bloggers. So, here are 5 facts about me!

1. I read pretty much all genres in YA! I really adore fantasy and contemporary the most. Still, historical fiction, sci-fi, paranormal, it’s all good! Horror is the only genre I really shy away from because I am such a baby!

2. When I’m not reading YA I’m likely reading adult historical romance! I love books by Sarah MacLean, Sophie Jordan, Julia Quinn, Julie Garwood, and more!!

3. I am addicted to audiobooks! You can find some of my recommendations here. The three I suggest most often areΒ The Knife of Never Letting Go, The Scorpio Races, andΒ The Demon King!!

4. I love going to author events! There are three great independent bookstores within two hours of where I live so I get to attend lots of signings! I also love attending conferences like Romantic Times (which has a great YA track!) and NCTE! You can check out some of the bookish people I’ve met here.

5. Aside from books, I geek out about Star Wars, The Princess Bride, Lord of the Rings, Doctor Who, Newsies, The Muppets, Harry Potter, and other geekery πŸ™‚


This was a hard choice. There are SO MANY series that I love. I decided to go with Leigh Bardugo’s Grisha trilogy. I’ve been a fan ever since I read book one for a pre-pub event with Leigh. Can you tell I like the books:

  2. La La in the Library

    It is a little known adult high fantasy series called The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever by Stephen R. Donaldson. I have read the original six and found out a few months ago he wrote three more stories for the series in more recent years. I like these novels better than the Lord of the Rings books. Thank-you for this stellar giveaway contest. πŸ™‚

  3. Samantha Wallace

    The Mythos Academy series by Jennifer Estep is just one of my favorite series to read!! πŸ™‚

    There are actually a lot of series that I like, and it would take forever to list them all, so here’s a few: Daughter of Smoke & Bone series, Mythos Academy series by Jennifer Estep (I actually have all of them in paperback) The Leviathan Trilogy, and Double Vision Trilogy by F.T. Bradley. πŸ˜€

  5. Jacklin Updegraft

    I love a lot of series like Daughter of Smoke and Bone, The Raven Boys Series, The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer series, The Darkest Minds series, and The lynburn Legacy series

    I mean, obviously my favorite series of all time is Harry Potter, but I really love The Daughter of Smoke and Bones series and also the Raven Cycle.

  7. Desiree

    I also love the SHADOW AND BONE series! UNDER THE BEVER SKY is one of my faves…and of course, HARRY POTTER!Thank you so much for the giveaway. I would LOVE to have a signed set!

  8. Jaime Lester

    The Lynburn Legacy series is at the top of my heap of favorites right now. Kami Glass and Angela and Holly and Jared and Ash and Jon Glass and…. well, the whole gang are some of the absolute best characters ever written and this series will always hold an incredibly special place in my heart. Definite rereads!

  9. Valerie Pennington

    I’m new to series, I typically read standalone contemps, but I read COMPULSION by Martina Boone and I am now a lover of series and other genres! The second book hasn’t come out yet but I just love the first one so stinking much.

  10. Amanda

    This is so difficult…I think my favorite series is Harry Potter but I also love The Raven Cycle, The Grisha Trilogy, and The Lynburn Legacy to name few!

  11. Shannon

    I love Maggie Stiefvater’s The Raven Cycle. And I’m begging my daughter to read Marissa Meyer’s Lunar Chronicles. Plus, I’m forever telling people to read Megan Shepherd’s The Madman’s Daughter. But all series, in my opinion, must bow before the Harry Potter series!

  12. Amber Hen

    I love, love, love the Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. I also recently fell in love with The Testing Trilogy by Joelle Charbanneau!

  13. Sabrina

    Harry Potter series all the way! Wow, I’m so jealous of your collection of grisha goodies! Thanks for the giveaway.

    Eh not possible to just pick one…seriously. Completely. Impossible. So here are a few. πŸ™‚ The Nine Realms series by Mark Cole. The Realms Keepers by Z.C. Bolger and Garrett Robinson. Mercy series by C.C. Marks…absolutely LOVED Hidden Monster by Amanda Strong. Waiting patiently (okay, maybe not very patiently) for book 2….in a year….*sigh* And the Inheritance cycle by Christoper Paolini (could totally post more but…then we’d be here alllll day). πŸ™‚

    Well currently I’m in love with The Raven Cycle and Bloodlines. Thanks for the chance!
