Book hop time

Phew, I survived working on a Friday, it was a bit of a shock for me, been a long time since I've done that and boy was it rubbish still there when everyone else was sloping off early. Glad to be home and relaxing now.

Book Blogger HopFirst up the Book Blogger Hop hosted by Jennifer at crazy-for-books.com. Today's question is How many books are currently in your TBR pile?

I'm not exactly sure but it's over 100, which should keep me going for a while! Fortunately most of those are e-books otherwise I'd be in trouble.

Over at parajunkee.com the it's genre wars! What's your favourite genre and which book in that genre made it your favourite?

I'm not sure I have a stand out favourite genre, I do love a good thriller but also I'm a big fan of historical fiction. I've been reading adult fiction since I was about 12, my parents would let me read anything I could lay my hands on, and I can't think of one particular book read back along that has led to me preferring either of those two. Silence of the Lambs is one that stands out for me though.

I'm looking forward to doing some hopping to see what other people's answers are, and would love to read your comments. Have a great weekend everyone! TC

Hi! Hopping over from the Hop! Love your blog!!! :)

I don't have an ereader or I can assure you, it would be disgusting how many books I had haha. I'm only addicted to buying three things, shoes, clothes, and books! haha.

My Hop is here:

I enjoy both of the genres you mentioned but I am definitely in a historical fiction phase at the moment.

Hello! New follower here! I used to enjoy historical fiction a lot, but haven't read any lately. I need to fix that. Happy reading!

I have way too many books on my TBR list and TBR pile. All told that comes to about sixty books.

Now here's the scary math: I read roughly one book per week - and sometimes two. But two to three books are being added to my TBR list every week.

Stressful, right?

Wrong!

Hop on over to my blog - http://www.howardsherman.net and find out why.

Thanks for all your comments, and welcome new follower - I'm so excited to have hit 150 followers. Maybe I should start thinking about a giveaway for when I hit 200!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! E-books are great for making our TBR pile a little easier to carry around!

Hopping through. Glad to connect with another historical fiction fan :-)

TC said...

Somer, yes, getting an e-reader has really helped stop my storage problems from getting any worse! TG, I'll have to have a good look at your reviews for some recommendations.

OLD FOLLOWER.

100 isn't too bad...I only have 29 books waiting to be read...physical books that is. I hope I answered the question correctly.

Just stopping by to say hello and to take a look around.

I am having a Father's Day giveaway on my blog if you would like to stop by....it ends at midnight tonight.
