October 1 2010 Blog Hop Follow Friday Tag Along

Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jennifer at Crazy-For-Books.

About the Hop: In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love of the written word! This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books! It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs to read!

This weeks question is: How do you spread the word about your blog?
(e.g. Social Networking sites, Book Blog Directories, comments on other blogs...)?

Honestly, I started my blog almost 2 years ago now, and I didn't do much of anything to spread the word. I'm still getting my feet wet too. I just recently discovered the Book Blogger Hop, Follow Friday and a few other memes that help spread the word, and I started visiting a LOT of other blogs, commenting, following and just generally finding a bunch of great, new people.

Follow Friday is hosted at Parajunkee's View.

Her question this week is: What books have bitten you?

Those books that I can't just read once, that I have to read over and over and over again? Well there's a lot of them honestly. I put quite a few of them in my Shelf of Awesome post, but here I'll post the first ones in the series (if applicable).

Darkfever (Fever 1) by Karen Marie Moning - I can NOT get enough of this series. You may have seen me talk about it here before, and I doubt it'll be the last time. I read and re-read them an every time I find something new.
Dark Lover (Black Dagger Brotherhood 1) by J.R. Ward - One of the first paranormal series I started on, I still go back to the beginning for re-reads.
Angel's Blood (Guild Hunters 1) by Nalini Singh - I'm a huge fangirl for Nalini's work (as evidenced by her having two series on this post). She is just incredible at world-building and unique, real characters.

Slave to Sensation (Psy/Changelings 1) by Nalini Singh - Just a few months ago in fact I read the entire series, back to back. Twice.
Moon Called (Mercy Thompson 1) by Patricia Briggs
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling
Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien -I still usually pick this up for a read at least once a year.
Queen of the Damned (Vampire Chronicles 3) by Anne Rice - Yes, I know I said I was going to post the first of the series, but this is the only book in the series that I always, and consistently, come back to for a re-read - so here's the exception that proves the rule ;)

Calling all 18 and over book bloggers, are you looking for more bloggers like yourself? Well please join in so we can tag along with each other. This is for a specific group and your blog needs to primarily have book reviews and post adult book content. In other words, if you read books like erotic and adult romance and have adult pic, then you can play tag along. Sorry YA readers, but if you read both (I know some of you do) you can tag along also. Just make sure you have both YA and adult romance on your blog.

It doesn't matter what you read if it’s paranormal, suspense, historical, contemporary or mystery, along with erotic with any genre. As long as it is adult then you’re in.

To join in the fun and get details click here. This tag along is hosted by Laurie at Bitten by Paranormal Romance.

If you have an adult book blog, please sign up for this tag along. There are others including myself that are looking for you so please join us.

Hello! Thank you for stopping by my blog - I'm so glad I joined in the 18+ tag along, I've met some great bloggers in the past few days. I'm a new follower, so I can't wait to see more from you in the future!

Also, I'm so wanting that Zoe Archer book you mentioned. Everyone keeps talking about it, I guess I better add that to my "Must have!" list.

First, THANK YOU for answering the Follow Friday question!

Two of your books (Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings) have bitten me too, lol! I even went so far as to take an entire college course on Lord of the Rings.

Second, yeah... I think though, that when you don't do too much promotion, you really have the satisfaction of knowing that your followers are following you because they're truly interested! Although this hop is a crazy, effective promo tool!!!
