Book Blogger Hop (#1)

Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jennifer @ Crazy for Books. ‘The Hop’ is a great way to find other people who love to blog about books just like me! So if your interested in participating why not check out Jennifer’s website for more information, simply click here.

Okay so this is my first ‘Hop’ (*squeals, so excited*), I hope everyone read some great books last week and found some interesting new blogs. Whilst perusing I found some great blogs, I’m only new to this book blogging and I’m amazed at how many fantastic book bloggers there are, it’s such as great community of people who love books!

Anyway back to ‘the Hop’, so this week Jennifer has added a new twist where we must answer a question, today’s question being (*drum roll please*):

Tell us your name and why you started blogging

Okay, so my name is Romy (Hi everyone!). I started blogging only recently because I really love reading books, particularly YA, but had no one to really discuss my thoughts or recommendations to (my friends aren’t as big readers as I am and are not particularly enamoured with the books I read, I know shameful). So I decided why not blog and get all my thoughts written down and out there. Another plus of this blogging was joining a vibrant community full of other book lovers who I can discuss books with.

Well, that’s my ‘hop’ feel free to comment, thanks so much for stopping by.

My answer is here.

Hey, just hopping in from the blog hop. I know what you mean with having no one around you to talk about the books you love. I have the same problem. Although, that doesn't stop me from blithering on forever about my most recent books, however that doesn't mean they are listening. Thank heaven for Goodreads and book blogging or I'd be in a world of sad from my lack of book talk! I'm following you now, so I can't wait to hear whats up next!
