Book Blogger Hop: 7/1-7/4 (and a surprise!)

Spread the word about the book party! The more the merrier!

In your blog post, answer the following question (new question each week!).

This week’s question comes from Sue who blogs at Cookies Book Club! Thanks for submitting a question for our Hoppers, Sue! Be sure to visit her blog and tell her thank you!

“What keeps you reading beyond the first few pages of a book, and what makes you want to stop reading a book and put it back on the shelf?“

IT'S TIME TO READ MAMAW'S ANSWER TO THIS QUESTION.

I started reading a book the last month and it was suppose to be a very good book. But after giving it a couple of chapters I just couldn’t get into it. I put the book aside to read another day. I don’t like to do that because I feel as if my mind might have had too many distractions and I didn’t give the book a chance. So I always try to wait for another day to give it another go. I have so many other books calling to me from my to-be-read list that it can really be distracting. READ ME! READ ME!
I prefer reading and reviewing Christian Fiction but I do read a varity of other books. I just can’t handle too scary or gory. Suspense and Mysteries I like. No explicit adult books either if I do find one I really want to read I just skip over the x-rated stuff. So what genre do I read?

  4. Thanks for stopping by my blog. That is why I like young adult. You don't have to worry about too much violence and x-rated stuff.

  5. Thanks for hopping by my blog! I like mysteries too, which really, if there is no mystery in the book I'm reading at all, it is hard for me to stay with it. New follower. ^_^

  8. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm a new follower of you as well. I like that you say that you prefer Christian fiction, but will read others and just skip over the parts you don't want to read. Sometimes those things are part of the story, but we can choose not to read them and still enjoy the story without completely "banning" the book. That's what I try to teach students I work with. Read what you enjoy, but if you have a problem with it, you don't have to read or finish it, but also don't judge other people.

  9. Thanks ever so much for visiting my blog! I am following yours. I commented on mine that I am a huge fan of Beverly Lewis, if you have not read any or many of hers. : )

  10. I sometimes find myself skipping over the "too smexy" parts of some books as well, if the rest of the story is great! I would think that you have an eclectic sort of reading style based on your Shelfari shelf!

  11. Super cute blog! Thanks for visiting me! I don't like the gore or scary stuff either. I get to involved in books... I forget its not real and then I'm freaked out or grossed out! I am the newest follower! So glad I found you! It seems we have the same taste in books ( :

  12. My favorite genre is Christian fiction, followed closely by general market YA. I don't know what happened, but YA got a heck of a lot better than when I was growing up. My 68 year old mom loves it as much as me.

  13. Thanks for dropping by my blog! Sounds like we have some reading tastes in common. I also don't care for books that are scary or have gore. I do like mind a good suspense book though. I also enjoy Christian fiction. I think there are some books like Ted Dekker's Blink and Randy Singer's False Witness that are clean, but not necessary what I would call Christian fiction.

  14. I'm loving the peaceful music on your adorable blog! :) My favorite genre to read in is usually Paranormal YA Literature and Fantasy Literature in general. In the way of violence, if it serves a purpose to further the story, I don't mind it as much. However, if it's senseless bloodshed that the author just HAD to put in the book, it's so not my cup of tea. Thank you for visiting my blog, and I'll be following you right back. :) Happy reading and happy July 4th!

  15. Sometimes putting the book aside and returning it later can work, though I'm learning to trust my gut more and more. New follower!

  16. Thanks so much for visiting me! I am now following you! What a very nice blog you have! I very much agree with you about horror, gore, etc. I won't read it. There are just so many things that I can read that do not disturb me like those do. "So many books, so little time."
    Have a great holiday!
