And We're Hopping...

Welcome Hoppers!  The Friday Book Blogger Hop is a chance for book bloggers to visit new blogs and spread the word about their own.  Hosted by Jennifer at Crazy-for-Books.  Visit her blog for rules!

This weeks question-who is your favorite "new-to-you" author?

My favorite new-to-me author has been around a long time, Octavia E.Butler.  She's a black, female, science fiction author, making her rather unique in the science fiction world.  So far I've read and reviewed The Fledgling, Wild Seed, and Mind of My Mind for my adult blog, Book Addict Reviews.



Thanks for "hopping" by!

  1. I would love to read something by Octavia Butler, as I love SF and dystopia. But my library doesn't have her books - and at the moment I'm not buying any books, either! She'll have to be on my long TBR for a little longer, I think. But what I hear, her books are really good!

  7. I have only read KINDRED. Loved it. You make me want to get these 2 books immediately. I am so sorry we lost her. At least, she wrote quite a bit and that is still with us.

  9. Hello, Happy Friday and Hop Day. I guess you must be getting ready to go back to school soon, like I am? I'm going to miss the leisure time for reading. I have Octavia Butler on my eternal list of books I should have read by now...I'm already a follower, but I'm glad I got a chance to stop by today. Have a great weekend.

  12. Bibliophiliac-yes, I'm starting to think about school. I'm vacationing this week in Michicagn, but then it's back into my room to start organizing and getting ready. I brought 10 books with me for six days, so I too am starting to get nervouse about losing reading time.

    Jules-thanks for the compliment. Two of my favorite things, books and coffee :)
