As for a little bit about myself.. I'm 23, work in a library, and review books for both my own blog and Romance Reviews Today. So as you can imagine, I am constantly around books - it's a good feeling. I'm also currently in a musical, which is why my reviews have been a little sporadic recently - but I'm still reading like no tomorrow! Follow me on Goodreads to see what I'm reading at any given moment, and you can even find me on Twitter.. where you will probably be bombared by book-y news and randomosity.
Now, on to the hippity hops!
What attracts you most to a book? Is it the cover, blurb, or something else? Well! If I'm just browsing the bookstore, it's usually the cover or title that catches my attention. But with all the blogs I follow nowadays, I'll see someone mention a book on with "Waiting on Wednesday" or just a random post, and I find my interest piqued.
If you find a book you love, do you hunt down other books by the same author? Definitely! After reading "Bet Me" by Jennifer Crusie, I found all of her other novels, read them.. and they're still some of my favorites. Same with Sherrilyn Kenyon (her historicals, paranormal, etc), and Lynsay Sands (historical, paranormal).
What is on your current playlist right now? Ha! It's a mix of songs that I have downloaded from the library (for free! Thanks Freegal!). Said playlist includes Three Days Grace, plenty of Glee songs (despite the fact that I don't really watch the show), and then I've added in the songs from the musical I'm in ("Urinetown") because we're getting down to the wire, and I need to make sure I have all my harmonies and such memorized.
I have no rehearsal tonight (it's amazing!) so I might actually be able to do the Friday hops ON FRIDAY! I look forward to meeting all my new follows and visiting your blogs!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend, and a Happy Easter (if you celebrate it)
