It's 1 A.M. - Time to Hop!

It's almost 1:00 in the morning here in monsoon-y Arizona and I'm still awake thanks to the combined efforts of my insulin pump (which decided to run out of juice about 30 minutes after I fell asleep), the rain (as much as I love the sound of rain falling in our parched desert, it's difficult to sleep to), and my 18-month-old (who is still awake and laughing her little head off at who knows what). So, yeah. I'm blogging. And Hopping. And blogging about Hopping.

If you haven't discovered the Book Blogger Hop yet, get yourself over to Crazy For Books and join in the fun. It's an excellent way to find new blogs. I'm amazed by how many I find every week.

This time around, Jen's asking all the participants to chat about their favorite authors. I'm too indecisive to pick a favorite anything, but here's a handful of writers I like:

Jodi Picoult - I love how she looks at ripped-from-the-headlines issues and makes me see them from all different angles.

Maeve Binchy - I love her soft, soothing Irish touch. Her books almost always pull me in with interesting characters and storylines.

Kathy Reichs - I've never been a big science fan, but I love how Reichs makes forensics so fascinating in her Tempe Brennan series. I also love the characters she creates.

Jacqueline Woodson - Her books always make me see things in a different light.

Cassandra Clare - The Mortal Instruments series. What more do I need to say?

... and tons more. Who are your favorites?


  1. Hi! I found your blog through the Hop and I'm a new follower so I'll be back soon.
    Have a great weekend,
    Carly x

  2. Thanks for letting me know about this book hop! We like Jodi Picoult books too, haven't really heard of your other favorites.

  3. I found you on the hop and became a follower. I am a Cassandra Clare fan too. Stop by my blog if you can. Have a great weekend.

  4. I'm from the hop, but I'm actually looking through posts. I plan on buying books soon and I am looking for something great to read.:)

  5. Thanks for stopping during the Hop.

    I really like your blog. Great to meet you!

    :) Melissa


Comments make me feel special, so go crazy! Just keep it clean and civil. Feel free to speak your mind (I always do), but be aware that I will delete any offensive comments.

P.S.: Don't panic if your comment doesn't show up right away. I have to approve each one before it posts to prevent spam. It's annoying, but it works!
