Friday Hops 6/17

Follow Friday! #18


Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee. It's a great way to meet new blogger friends!

This weeks question is:
Q. Genre Wars! What's your favorite genre and which book in that genre made it your favorite?
Hmmm... I would probably have to say Dystopian. And the books that got me there... The Hunger Games, of course!




Book Blogger Hop #16

Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Crazy-For-Books.com. It's a great way to meet new people and friends around the blogworld!

Today's question is:
How many books are currently in your To-Be-Read (TBR) Pile?"
Ummm, too many. :)  If I am just counting what's on my bookshelf at the moment that I've purchased, borrowed, gotten from Netgalley, etc, it would probably be over 50.  My TBR list on Goodreads is currently around 750!

Thanks for stopping by everyone! Please leave a comment with your link so I can follow you back!

  10. Old follower here. Great choice! I just finished that trilogy last month and it really got me into dystopian.

  11. New follower just stopping by to say Hi and Happy Friday!

    I chose romance. Bring on the ab-tastic men and their fiery heroines. TSTL heroines need not apply.

  12. Agreed! Hunger Games is awesome! It sparked my interest in dystopian. You should try The Demon Trapper series by Jana Oliver. There's romance in it but it's set in the near future, say 2018.

  13. Hi! New follower! I'm posting both of these as well!

    There is no other dystopian but Hunger Games. Nah, seriously, I only compare all the others to it! ;)

    Happy reading, friend!

  17. I have not read anything in this genre before, but maybe I will since everyone seems to love the hunger games!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Yes, dystopia seems to be a popular genre. I loved the Hunger Games too! Have a great Friday!

    ReplyDelete
  19. YAY! I love that we love the same genre AND that the same book started it for both of us! :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. I might be one of the few people who haven't read The Hunger Games. I'm more of a paranormal reader! Where my interest can really only be held if there's some sort of supernatural going on!

    Here's my Friday Hops

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  22. Hopping over from the Hop! And I'm an old follower! :)

    50 books in your possession isn't too bad! I have considerably less than that haha. But that's ok by me. Some people have thousands! So I'm happy with my small number! :)

  23. Hi! Just hopping thru (and a new follower) and I have to admit that I too loved the Hunger Games. Happy Friday!

  24. The Hunger Games is such an amazing series. This was hard to pick just one.

    Your TBR list is HUGE!

    Happy weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I do like dystopia, but I don't have a favorite genre. I like a few different ones.

    Happy FRIDAY!

  26. I really haven't read a lot of Dystopian, although I do have a lot of Dystopian on my TBR list. And speaking of TBR lists, my goodreads shelf is nowhere near where yours it but it is starting to get a little crazy!

  27. There is no such thing as too many books on your TBR. The most important thing is to read and enjoy what you read.
    Happy blogging.

    ReplyDelete
  28. My TBR list on Goodreads is also rather large (854). When will we ever get through them all? I even went through and removed about 50 that I was no longer interested in. haha

    ReplyDelete
  29. I think a lot of people will choose dystopian. I've only read one so far.

    Have a great weekend :-D

  32. I am your 499th follower! :) Hunger Games is awesome. I haven't rad any other dystopian but have heard Divergant is excellent. I will have to look into the genre more.

  33. I have yet to read The Hunger Games, but I've read several Dystopian and I'm not a big fan. :( So, I've been nervous to give it a go.

    Thank you for stopping by the blog. Following back. :)

  35. Wow! 750 that's a lot. I think mine is at 350 but their's no way I could ever even make a dent in that number. I read one, add one such a vicious cycle :) lol

  38. If you like dystopian novels, then I have to recommend The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood to you, if you haven't already read it- it's too awesome not to be read! I had a really hard time picking a favourite genre though, everything's just so fabulous hehehe

    ReplyDelete
  39. Thanks for hopping! I have so many books TBR it's not funny :lol:

  40. I have a lot of books I want to read, but only about 12 physical books that are waiting on my bookshelf. I'm a new follower. Come on over to my site and enter to win a Kindle on my book launch of

  46. I have way too many books on my TBR list and TBR pile. All told that comes to about sixty books.

    Now here's the scary math: I read roughly one book per week - and sometimes two. But two to three books are being added to my TBR list every week.

    Stressful, right?

    Wrong!

    Hop on over to my blog - http://www.howardsherman.net and find out why.

  55. Ugh, my TBR list on Goodreads is about as big as yours!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Dystopian books are the best. I love the Hunger Games too!

    ReplyDelete
  57. I think Dystopian novels might just be the new It genre haha, thanks to The Hunger Games! I loved the series and it introduced me to other great dystopian books like Divergent and Delirium (:

    750!? That's insane...but a good kind of insane :D It's nice knowing you have tons of books waiting for you to be read.

    Thanks for stopping by...old follower here! (:

  63. Wow! That's quite a TBR pile! And Dystopian is really growing on me now. Really loving that genre. :)

    ReplyDelete
  64. SO many people have said that dystopian is their favourite because of the Hunger Games series. I own the book, but I have not read it. I better jump on it.

    Thanks for stopping by.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I gotta applaud The Hunger Games love. I am getting quite attached to the dystopian genre myself!

  66. Dystopian is a popular choice this week, and no wonder. It is a great genre. :) My physical TBR pile is over 100, but my GR TBR is over 600. We'll never run out of anything to read. :)

  67. Hi Christy,

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and the follow - following you back now. :)

    Hunger Games was a great read. I have books 2 and 3 waiting in my TBR pile. It was the fist dystopian book I ever read and it has wet my appetite for the genre.
