Okay, so last week I was away for a few days and not doing much blogging. Today I find out that a question I suggested for this meme was used last week and it's the one week I didn't participate. So, I figure I'll just answer both weeks today :)
The question last week was...
What do you look for when reading a book blog? Does the blogger have to read the same genre? Do you like reviews? Personal posts? Memes? Giveaways? What attracts you to a book blog?
I started by reading blogs with the same reading interests that I have, but I've branched out in the three years I've been blogging. If the reviews are written well, I enjoy them even if they aren't the same genres I read. I love memes. They're fun and I get to learn more about my fellow bloggers. The same with personal posts. Giveaways are fun, but they aren't a necessity for me. Mainly it's about the reviews and getting to know other bloggers.
And–what are your favorite book blogs?
I don't want to name blogs, since I'm sure I'll forget some, but the ones I regularly visit are listed in my sidebar.
This week's question...
Have you ever fallen in love with a fictional character? Who and what about them did you love?
Mmmm...I can't really think of anyone specific, but there have been times where I'll fall in love with the hero. It only sticks with me while I'm reading the book which is probably why I can't give you a specific name. Wait...I just remembered a hero that I'm in love with even though I haven't read any books in the series for a few years...Joe Grey from the Joe Grey Mysteries by Shirley Rousseau Murphy.
For those who don't know, Joe Grey is a feline detective and he always manages to save the day for the dopey humans who can't seem to do it themselves. LOL
