Book Blogger Hop and a Giveaway

Is it Friday all ready? I’m happy to be Book Blog Hopping again and visiting new blogs.

Jennifer at Crazy for Books asked us to name some of our favorite authors so here’s a short list of mine:

1. Laurie King for the awesome Mary Russell series
Mary Kay Andrews because I just love her southern sensibilities
Sophie Kinsella/Madeleine Wickham for the Shopaholic series and all her stand alones
Clive Cussler because I do love adventure
Steve Berry for even more adventure and the Cotton Malone character
Jane Austen for just being Jane
Charlotte Bronte for Jane Eyre
Lillian Jackson Braun and the wonderful Cat Who series
Kate White for her Bailey Weggins crime series
Adriana Trigiani and her warmly written and relatable characters

I could go on but there wouldn’t be room for anything else! Why not play along, it’s a great way to meet your fellow bloggers.

Speaking of which, Alison at Alison Can Read is having a great Twilight giveaway. Go visit with her and you’ll have a chance to win Twilight Saga Eclipse: Official Illustrated Movie Companion plus a Twilight collector’s beaded bookmark! So are you Team Edward or Jacob? Contest ends July 15th.

The Literary Gato and the Head Librarian wish you a great weekend!
See you next week at the Hop.
