Book Blogger Hop (September 17th -20th)

     I had quite the week, what about you? The teachers piled on the homework this weekend, but that's alright. I'm still on a high from our awesome version of trench warfare in U.S. History on Thursday. :) We used paper balls (simulating bullets) and the desks (forming the 'trench'). It may sound dorky, but it was unimaginably fun to get the chance to throw things at the people you don't like in your class! No, I'm just kidding!
     Good times, good times...
Book Blogger HopThank you Jennifer at Crazy-for-Books!
Prompt of the Week:
     In honor of Book Blogger Appreciation Week, let's take time this week to honor our favorite book bloggers and why we love them!
     Well, I'd have to say Christina from Books Are Life is definitely my inspiration for blogging! She is the one who introduced me to the whole world of sharing my love of books with other people. Obviously she has a wonderful blog complete with reviews, interviews and everything in between! What's not to love? I've also had the great experience of being friends with Christina in-person (oh, those lovely AP Euro days...).  Don't miss out on this fabulous blog!
     Then there is my eighth grade English teacher's review blog. She was one of my favorite teachers. Heather (it's weird calling her by her first name) at The One Thing I Regret could be a writer herself! Don't you just love her style? She truly makes me want to read every book she discusses!
     I know there are zillions of other blogs out there that I have surely missed out on, but I feel that the above mentioned two are some of the best. Be sure to stop by and check both of them out!
    Have fun reading and hopping!

I'm Rowena, just hopping through really late from the blog hop. I'm hitting everyone up that I missed on friday and you're reading one of the books that I'm anxious to read so I'm looking forward to reading your thoughts on the book. I'm a new follower so I'll be able to keep up to date with your posts and I'm looking forward to getting to know your reading tastes.

Happy reading!
