It's Friday!


Yeay, Friday is the beginning of my 5 day weekend and the day the Book Blogger Hop and Follow Friday pop up on my radar.
Book Blogger Hop
The Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jennifer at Crazy for Books I love finding new book blogs, there are hundreds of participants. This week's question is:

What are you reading now and why are you reading it?

I'm reading Traitor's Gate by Mary Fitzgerald at the moment. It's a historical adventure, based in Chester during the English civil war. I love historical fiction and haven't read any for a while, and recently read and adored another of Mary's books, Richard Wilde, so thought it looked a very good choice.





To find out more about Follow Friday visit host parajunkee Again it's a good way to find other book bloggers. This week's question over there is:

What is the book you are currently pushing?

I'm not pushing any book in particular but I think there are a lot of indie and small press authors who deserve a lot more attention. People who don't look beyond the big publishers are missing out on some wonderful books!

I'm looking forward to reading your reviews. There are a LOT of great books out there. I went through a classics phase at one point. It was a good time. I'm a new follower from the hop. Happy Friday!

Enjoy your long weekend!

I'm bloghopping today, seeing what people are currently reading, befriending new blogs. I'm reading a children's book from New Zealand called Under the Mountain that is on the 1001 Children's Books You Must Read list. Excellent.

And I am your newest follower! Hope you will stop by my blog and say hello!

I've never heard of Traitor's Gate, but I don't read much historical fiction so heh~~

Yah, some small presses do good work ^.^ I especially like Subterranean Press although they're more for fan paraphernalia...

New Follower!

Enjoy your book! Historical fiction is not my usual choice, but occasionally I enjoy it.

Good answer! The answer on my book blog is a little embarassing; it’s a book that’s been sitting on my TBR pile for a year.

To my shame, I only opened the book because I remember it contained an Amazon gift card.
