Book Blogger Hop (21) and Follow Friday (10)

This week's Book Blogger Hop question is...

If you find a book you love, do you hunt down other books by the same author?

I usually intend to. The only problem is that I have a ton of books on my to-read list (478, to be exact), so it takes an amazing book to make me stray off the list and read more by that author. I have done it though, most notably with John Green. His books are indescribably awesome, and Nerdfighters, DFTBA! (If you don't know what that last thing is, look up the Vlogbrothers on YouTube. You won't regret it, especially if you're a John Green fan.)


This week's Follow Friday question is...

What is on your current playlist now?


These bands: My Chemical Romance, The Academy Is, All Time Low, Panic! At the Disco, 30 Seconds to Mars, Secondhand Serenade, Dresden Dolls, Jack's Mannequin, 2 AM, and Taeyang. Quite an eclectic mix :)

If you're new to my blog, welcome! Please leave a comment with your link so I can return the favor. I'm looking mostly for YA-centric blogs to follow.

I would not have that many in my TBR list or I would never get to anything. WOW!

Hi there Izzy, new follower here! Your blog is really cute, glad I found it through the FF for this week!

I also have a pretty eclectic taste in music, I like anything from Coldplay to Red Hot Chili Peppers to Britney Spears to Sarah Brightman... there's so much good music out there, I can't settle for just one style!

Hope you are having a great weekend-- happy reading!!

Happy Reading!

I understand what you mean with your TBR pile, but not to the extent of 400+books haha. I wouldn't know where to put them :S

Anyways, I'm a new follower via the hop.

I'm also having a big contest on my blog at the moment, so feel free to check it out!
Have a great weekend!

Rather than purchase the entire back list of a new favorite author, I try to get them through the library. Come see which author I'm reading through right now.

Kat said...

Wow, your to-read list is twice as long as mine, and mine is pretty expansive! I love your playlist, especially My Chemical Romance and Panic! at the Disco. DFTBA right back 'atcha-- I love Nerdfighters and the vlogbrothers. :) Anyway, new follower here.

Hi there! I don't sound like the book you're looking for to follow, but I thought I'd still say a hello! You have a very nice blog. :)

And I haven't really heard of all of those bands, but I really like the ones I have heard! Sounds like a great playlist.

By reading your playlist, I just realized that I don't listen to bands very often. My to-be-read list is interesting. If I find a new and interesting book, I am more likely to read it. I go to my toberead list when I'm out of ideas. I know that makes no sense but it is how I role.

*roll (oops.)

Steph said...

Yeah that's sort of why I don't look up on author's books after reading one. I like sticking to a strict list :P

Jadey! said...

That is one bigggg TBR list, I keep mine down to around 20, or my family and boyfriend hate me xD

I love your playlist! Though I struggle to concentrate with PATD! In my head!

Happy Easter (if you celebrate!)
