Book Blogger Hop and Follow Friday

Book Blogger Hop
This is the Book Blogger Hop, hosted at Crazy For Books.

This week's question is:

"Tell us about one of your posts from this week and give us a link so we can read it (review or otherwise)!"

Well, last Monday I posted a review of True Grit, comparing the book to the new movie. I love reading, but I'd like to also post about the occasional movie or other media, etc. What do you all think of that idea? Do you only read book blogs for the book recommendations?

This is Follow Friday, hosted by Parajunkee's View

This week's question is from Ruby's Reads:

What is your favorite romance hero-type? Stereotype wise. Do you like the strong silent type or the brute macho man?

This seems like an odd question to me, but I read very little romance. Do you mean favorite romance hero to read about, or favorite type to be attracted to?

When I do read romance, I care much more about whether he's the heroine's type. It's her relationship after all, and if she's a cipher, then I'm not interested in the story. In general, though, I'll always take option three: smart as a whip. 


Next Week is Fantasy Flashback Week here at The Blue Fairy's Bookshelf!

All week I'll be posting about Middle Grade novels (all but one of them Fantasy) that I'm re-reading now, having not opened them in years.

Mon Feb 14: The Book of Three, by Lloyd Alexander
Tues Feb 15: The Farthest-Away Mountain, by Lynne Reid Banks
Wed Feb 16: Swept Away, by Josepha Sherman
Thurs Feb 17: Dealing With Dragons, by Patricia C. Wrede
Fri Feb 18: Sun Blind, by Gwen Hansen
Sat Feb 19: (Non Fantasy) The Westing Game, by Ellen Raskin
Sun Feb 20: The Phantom Tollbooth, by Norton Juster

If any of these titles ring a bell, I hope you'll come by next week and share your memories.

New follower here! I really like your answer to the romace question. Thanks for posting about your upcoming fantasy week. I really love fantasy and have missed posting about it lately so it will be fun to read about.

The Post Is:

This week I reviewed a work of suspense fiction that is such a wide departure from the thriller genre that I feel everyone – fans and foes of the genre alike – really should investigate.

Hop on over to my blog and see for yourself –
