Follow Friday!

Lah says: Happy Friday everyone! Hope you had a great week. I love it when people follow my blog and comment. So I'm going to participate in these memes so I can do the same for you :) Take a look around, you might see something you like!

Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jennifer @ Crazy For Books!

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?

Well, I love this question first of all because I never think about it. I can easily tell you what makes me put a book down. But the opposite is tough.

OK...I love getting into the action extremely quickly. I don't want too much exposition right away when I don't care to know how hot the sun is or how blue this dude's eyes are. Let me know what's happening and THEN let's backtrack!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Hey Lah! I agree. Sometimes too much detail can really take away from the book. It's always good for the story to be moving.

  2. Great answer ^-^ Happy Hopping!

  3. Hopping over.... Great comment! I agree- I like to be in a situation to get the ball moving!

  8. These book blogger hop questions just get better and better. This one looks easy but I think it’s a trick question. We all know it’s the same answer – the writing – but we all have different perspectives of what good writing is.

    Hop on over to my blog at and read my three-prong answer as I explain why I’ll decide to pick up a book or put it down in under sixty seconds.

    Happy July 4th Weekend!

  9. Hopping through. I don't NEED to get into action right away, but it definitely makes it easier to get hooked on a book.

  10. Great answer! And I think your blog background is very pretty. Enjoy your weekend. I am now following.

  11. I am your newest GFC follower. My Answer.

    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?

  12. Stopping by via Crazy-For-Book's Blog Hop. I'm following your blog.

    I'm having a giveaway on my blog this weekend so please stop by!

  13. I stopped by your blog today.

  14. I will put a book down if I find my mind wandering too much while reading; and a book that I can't put down is one that makes me feel lost in the world that I'm reading about.


I appreciate your comments!
