The Greek Gods Book Tag

Chris at Biblio Nerd Reflections tagged me a few days ago in the Greek Gods Book Tag. Now, it’s been a while since I’ve done a book tag and it looks fun, so of course I decided to do it.

The rules for the Greek Gods Book Tag are:

  • Pingback to Zuky here so she can read all your posts!
  • You can use her graphics if you like, but you don’t have to if you don’t want to.
  • Tag as many people as you want, but please share the love.

Book Blogger Hop: March 8-14

It’s been a while since I did a Book Blogger Hop. Since I was away on a short family vacation, I thought I’d find something lighter to post about while I get back into my routine.

The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.

This Week’s Question

Do you use a book’s synopsis for your review? (Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer)

Yes, I currently use a book’s synopsis for my review. When I first started reviewing on my blog I used to write my own synopsis. At the time I chose not to use the official book blurb because I wanted to try my hand at summarizing it myself. Long story short, it caused me a lot of stress writing my own book synopsis. It often took me nearly as long to write that first paragraph as the rest of the review.

To reduce my writing freeze about the synopsis, I decided to make it easier on myself and just use the official book blurb instead. (Remember, this is supposed to be a fun hobby, not a stressful one!) I figured the publisher already paid someone to professionally write it, so why not use it. Sometimes I just let the official blurb speak for itself. But lately I’ve been trying to include a lower key synopsis of my own at the beginning of my review. I feel it just flows better that way.

Naughty Or Nice Book Tag

I thought I did this Naughty or Nice Book Tag last year, but apparently I didn’t. Thanks to Chris for bringing it to my attention. The Naughty or Nice Book Tag was created by Jen of Jenniely, and the goal is to answer the bookish questions to find out if you will be on Santa’s naughty or nice list this year. I didn’t tag anyone, but feel free to join in the Naughty or Nice Book Tag.

Sundays In Bed With…The Words of Kings and Prophets

I decided a few months ago to stick mostly to posting reviews on my blog for the sake of my free time. That doesn’t preclude me, however, from posting the occasional book meme when inspiration strikes! So allow me to join in today with a Sundays In Bed With… post.

The Sundays in Bed With… meme, hosted by Midnight Book Girl, dares to ask what book has been in your bed this morning. Come share what book you’ve spent time curled up reading in bed, or which book you wish you had time to read today!
