Book Blogger Hop (July 30-Aug 2) & Follow Friday

Book Blogger Hop is something I recently discovered and it's hosted by Crazy-For-Books, check it out!

This week's question:
Who is your favorite new-to-you author so far this year?

Hmm. Well, I'm going to be a cheater and pick more than one...

1. Lauren Oliver
Before I Fall is my favorite book I've read this year and practically the first book to make me cry. That says something, I swear. I can't wait to read Lauren's next book Delirium. I'm so so SO jealous of everyone who has an ARC! (*Kicking myself for not being able to go to BEA!* Darn School.)

2. Courtney Summers
Like Lauren, Courtney Summers blew me away with both her books Cracked Up To Be and Some Girls Are. She's already become one of my favorite authors and I'm counting down the days 'til Fall For Anything is released.

3. Richelle Mead
This one is definitely a "new-to-me" author.
I'd heard lots of good things about the Vampire Academy series, but just recently read the first three and am currently DYING for the 4th book (every store near me seems to not have it!). The series is so not what I expected and I love it.


Follow Friday is similar to the Book Blogger Hop, and is hosted by Parajunkee's View (Whose blog is awesome!).

I wanna welcome all new followers!
I hope to have a few contests and giveaways soon, and you can't really have a contest without entries... haha
So I hope you stay tuned!

Thanks for following & I'll be sure to follow you back! :)

  9. Lauren Oliver is one of my pics too! I discovered Richelle Mead in 2008, but so she's not new to me, but definitely a YA star.
