Your blog should have content related to books, including, but not limited to book reviews.
Please do not list every genre you review - if you are review a variety, please put eclectic! The Hop gets jumbled up if the title is too long, so please limit to one genre. I will be limiting the number of characters in the title to ensure the Hop doesn't look messy! Thank you!
2. Post about the Hop on your blog. Spread the word about the book party! The more the merrier! In your blog post, answer the following question (new question each week!). If you have a suggestion for a future HOP question, click here to fill out the form! Thanks!
3. Visit other blogs in the Linky List! Make new friends! Follow new book bloggers! Talk about books! Rave about authors! Take the time to make a quality visit! Check out other posts and content, make a new friend! Don't randomly follow someone if you never intend on actually following them! No spamming please! (Please do not leave your link and not visit other blogs - it's just not cool and not in the spirit of the Hop!)
And just as an FYI - this event is not something you should feel that you have to participate in every week. If you want to join in and link up once a month, GREAT! It's up to you how often you participate!
So, have fun HOPPING and enjoy your BOOK PARTY weekend!!!
We really haven't established any Thanksgiving traditions yet. We watch the Macy's parade on TV (something I grew up going to as I grew up in Queens NY). We make a meal, but so far each year there has been a different menu. We don't really get together with any family, mostly because of my husband's work schedule as an LPN working 12 hour night shifts. Even if he has Thanksgiving off, he still was working the day before and needs his sleep.
So...from Eye of the Beholder by Kathy Herman:
"The tires squealed on Owen Jones's black Jaguar convertible as he turned on Half Moon Drive ad again on Barefoot Trace."
Okay, so why was he squealing tires? And should I know who this character is? (This is the second book in the series) The second line mentions a father son talk, so I realize I know the father from the first book. What is going on that is frustrating Owen so much?
And from Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer:
From the Preface: "All our attempts at subterfuge had been in vain."
Knowing from the previous books that the preface holds a glimpse of a scene from with in the book I have a sense of dread and wonder what has gone wrong. Also wonder who they have been deceiving. The Volturi? The werewolves? Someone else? There is just that feeling of suspense that really got me into this book.
