book Blogger Hop

It's time to join in the Book Blogger Hop with Jennifer at Crazy for Books.

If you want to join the fun and meet your fellow book bloggers, visit Jennifer, add your link to the list, and choose a blog to visit. I am no. 272 on the list so you can see there are a lot of blogs to visit and though we all share the same interest in books we are diverse enough to make it really interesting.

Today's question:
Who is your favorite new-to-you author this year?

Hands down easy question for me. It's Elizabeth Peters and having just finished The Ape Who Guards the Balance, I plan on following her Amanada Peabody series to the hilt. Peabody, as she is called by her husband Emerson, is an Egyptologist and amateur sleuth and her stories are told behind the country backdrop of Kent, the teaming streets of London, the ancient temples of Egypt, and simmering religious tensions of Palestine on the eve of World War I.

Elizabeth Peters

Hope you are enjoying your weekend!
Have fun blog hopping!


  1. Stopping by to say hello! THE APE WHO GUARDS THE BALANCE sounds like an intriguing read. I've always been facinated with ancient Egypt. When my romance TBR pile is under control, I want to branch out and read new genres! Have a wonderful weekend.

  2. Ms. Peters seems like a dedicated author. I will definitely check her out.

  3. Hi! I'm hopping by! I haven't heard of your new fave authors before but The Ape Who Guards the Balance is definitely a book title that kinds of stands out.

    Have a great weekend! :)
