BOOK BLOGGER HOP #1



This week's question for the Book Blogger Hop, as hosted by Crazy For Books is:

"WHAT ARE YOU READING NOW AND WHY ARE YOU READING IT?"

Right now I'm about a quarter way through The Name of the Wind (Kingkiller Chronicle #1) by Patrick Rothfuss. When I was in the bookshop last weekend I wanted a fantasy book to read and was stood for ages trying to pick one out. Needless to say my boyfriend got fairly cheesed off waiting for me to pick a book. Eventually I picked out this wind, because it didn't have a heavy 'war' feel to it.

The added bonus is that without realising I picked up Fantasy Faction's chosen book to read for their February book club. Which means that on their forums I can join in discussions on the book.



What are you reading?

Good answer! The answer on my book blog is a little embarassing; it’s a book that’s been sitting on my TBR pile for a year.

To my shame, I only opened the book because I remember it contained an Amazon gift card.

I just ordered that same book yesterday! I've heard such good things about it, I just had to see what the hype was about. I hope that it's worth it!

Thanks for sharing! Happy Hop!

Hopping through. New follower!
I haven't heard of Rothfuss's book. I'm always up for a new fantasy so I'll have to look it up.

Thanks for stopping by - my husband and son both wonder how it could take "so long" to pick out a book! They're not readers obviously!
