book blogger hop

Book Blogger Hop

"If you find a book that looks interesting but is part of a series, do you always start with the first title?"

Hi welcome to this weeks book blogger hop and the question is above
I hate it when i've read a book and find out that it is part of a series and I've not read them in order. I feel as if I've missed something, because there always something in the book that relates to the previous one. I have to go on a mission to find the first book of the series and any following ones, then I start all over again.
I did this with the Harry Potter series. My daughter lent me a book, I think it was the third in the series and I was hooked. So I had to start  reading them from the begining, I enjoyed the book more the second time around, after getting to know the characters from day one.

This is another one of my favorite reads ( tried to post a picture but failed)
Here is a review of the book, I came across these other two books by ELLORY and they are on my tbr pile
I hope they are as good as ANGELS

This is not a book about a mass murderer and his motive, this is a story about the effect the murders have on a small town in southern USA. Joseph is the central character and you become part of him and are taken through every emotion of his life. This is from childhood through to his 40's. His life is quite tragic but he soldiers on and never gives up. I love the life described in small town USA, you really feel like you are there with him, the hot sun beating down, the simple folk that live there and when he goes to New York, the difference in life are well described. You get to know all his friends and really feel part of him. Well written, It'll take me a little while before I can get this out my head and start another book.

spooktacular giveaway winners

Gosh what a great response this giveaway has been, I would like to award all you lovely people who visited my blog and left a comment a prize but that is beyond my means i'm afraid.

I was considering doing a random number select but I think that is a bit inpersonal, so in time honoured fashion, I wrote everyones name down and put them all in a hat( soup bowl actually)
My helpfull Hubby drew the names out, so here goes.

Winner no 1 is April  (book and crocheted witch)
Winner no 2  is Taffy (book and crocheted pumpkin)
Winner no 3 is Melanie (crocheted witch and pumpkin)

Congratulations to you all and once again thankyou to everyone for entering.
It was great fun.

All winners will be emailed and as soon as you get back to me , I will post prizes out

Silly, silly, silly blogger
I tried to edit the last photos, so you don't have to turn your laptop over, or lay down to view them but gave up in the end. Neither could i delete them so just went for it.
Here are the photos correct way up and don't forget, if you were unsuccesfull in the giveaway blog and would like either a witch or a pumpkin, let me know.

winners announced

What a silly blogger I am.
I have just realised that I did not announce the winners of my Spooktacular Book Blog giveaway. I was that busy emailing the winners (and checking to see if I had won anything,not) that I completely forgot about posting them here.
Now it has just occured to me , I did blog about the winners, but never got around to publish it, a silly,silly blogger.

Here are the pictures of the crocheted prizes, because I made the giveaway international and all the winners were in the USA, if anyone else in the world would like a pumpkin or witch, please let me know.
I have enjoyed making these and I am gratefull to all who entered the giveaway that I will send upto 4 followers either a witch or pumpkin.

Book Blogger Hop

Hi and welome to my blog and this weeks Book Blogger Hop
Here is this weeks question

"What are your feelings on losing followers? Have you ever stopped following a blog?"

I am just amazed to have so many followers. I only started this blog after coming across esshaych blog on crochet. Before that I was ignorant of what a blog was lol.
I quickly became hooked so much so that I thought I'd like to try this, just for fun.
And here I am 5 months later with 60 folowers and 60+ blogs under my belt.
I suppose if I were to lose followers it might give me something to think about, is my blog too boring or where am I going wrong. I am just gratefull to have all these lovely followers and I know credit should go towards the Spooktacular Book Blog Giveaway, I had loads of fun.
At the moment I wouldn't stop being a follower (I don't know how to anyway)
I'm having too much fun !!!!!!!!!!!!

If you haven't visited the following blog do so now. There is a brilliant giveaway going on so hop on over right now.

Grab My Button!
