Book Blogger Hop July 9th

Jennifer, over at Crazy-For-Books hosts Book Blogger Hop.

We are getting to know our Book Blog Hoppers!  Please answer the following question in your blog hop post and link to it in the Linky at her site!  

This week's question:  Tell us about some of your favorite authors and why they are your favorites!

A long time favorite Christian author of mine is Janette Oke.  It has been a long time since I have read her books but her stories are quite enjoyable.  Well written faith based historical fiction. 
A new-to-me Christian author is Kathy Herman.  Her suspenseful stories are riveting and I enjoy the way she weaves God's forgiveness and grace through the books.  I have only read her first series so far (The Baxter series, of which you will find my reviews under my labels), but I have the second series on my Summer Reading Challenge list, so they will go on hold at the library soon.
I do really enjoy the Twilight series by Stephanie Meyer, but I am not sure if that would qualify her as a favorite author.  I really do enjoy JK Rowling's writing, her style, the way she was able to weave her stories and create such a realistic fantasy world with characters I just adore.


In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop is a placejust 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!  So, grab the logo, post about the Hop on your blog, and start HOPPING through the list of blogs that are posted in the Linky list below!!

The Hop lasts Friday-Monday every week, so if you don't have time to Hop today, come back later and join the fun!  This is a weekly event!  And stop back throughout the weekend to see all the new blogs that are added!  We get over 200 links every week!! 

Your blog should have content related to books, including, but not limited to book reviews.

If you start following someone through the Hop, leave a comment on their blog to let them know!  Stop back during the week to see other blogs that are added!  And, most importantly, the idea is to HAVE FUN!!

The Hop isn't just for you to throw your link in there and not visit any other blogs.  It's all about networking and finding new blogs that are of interest. So, in the spirit of the Hop, try to make some time to visit other blogs and don't post your link if you are not planning on visiting other blogs in the Hop that week.  This is a weekly event, so if you don't have time this week, that's fine!  We'll see you next week!

If you sign Linky, please share the love and POST ABOUT THE HOP ON YOUR BLOG!  How else will anyone else find out about it and come join the party?
