My Second Post: A blog hop!

Since I have been blogging for a while, I do actually know where to go to get the ball rolling on introducing new readers to my blog. Since I haven't been reading much lately, which is part of the reason I wanted to start blogging again, I don't have any reviews to put up quite yet. I'm working on it. In the meantime however, any one stopping buy can at least learn about me a little bit more. 
That's right.
Invest yourself in me. That way when I do have reviews, you'll come back and read them. It'll be wild.

So--the book blogger hop seems to be moving around from blog to blog right now, and this week it is being hosted by Soon Remembered Tales  I had never been to this blog before this morning, but it seems rather nice. Right on the front page of the blog you can see the awesome reviews recently put up, which include Catcher in the Rye, Fahrenheit 451, and a book I've never heard of called The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-time Indian

The question that was asked for the blogger hop was:
With Autumn upon us and Halloween drawing near, what books remind you of fall? What ones do you enjoy reading that are about autumn?
This is a little harder for me to answer than I thought it would be. Personally, I'm not a fan of things that frighten me. I don't often read books that are going to scare me for days and make me sleep with the lights on at night. However, during a challenge a few years back I read an awesome book that was scary...but in a different way. Most likely, this book reminds me of fall more than any other, because I did read it in October, and the way the book was was almost like Fall...getting colder the longer it went on.

The book was titled Into the Forest and was written by Jean Hegland
This is an amazing book, that I highly recommend for this time of year. Let me break it down for you:
Everything is awesome, life is good. Two teenage girls, doing their thing, having a whole and mostly healthy family. Then- BAM family tragedy strikes. Shortly after their own personal worlds are knocked around a little...the WHOLE world gets knocked around a little. See, the lights stop coming back on. Eventually...all electricity is lost, and these two teen aged sisters have to figure out how to survive it.

There are times when the book gets a little gritty, but I still highly recommend it. It's not a scare you until you sleep with one eye open sort of book, but the next time a light bulb blows out after you read it, your heart will jump, I promise you that.

Well- I'm off to read what others wrote about this subject, and to do some networking. Have a wonderful Sunday!

    1. Thanks so much! I'm sorry I'm just now getting to this, but I wasn't so sure that blogging again was going to work out for me. Maybe it will! I'm off to read your response and check out your blog now.

  2. Welcome to the blogging community! I'm new too - I just started a few weeks ago.

    Hope you have fun and I look forward to reading your reviews.


    1. I should have added "book blogging community" since you're obviously not new to blogging. Sorry - fingers hit enter before brain was done. :)
