Follow Friday (9) Blog Hop (8)

What is the thing you like most about reading book blogs?  Is it the reviews, author guest posts, articles, giveaways, or something else entirely?"
Honestly, I love everything about them. I think the reviews are a man part though. I like being able to see what others thought of the books I've already read, or want to read.

Do you have an under-noticed author that you think we should all know about?

Hum that's actually a good question I think most of the books I have read are all pretty much well-lnown authors. I know that my friend got a book published in September. It wasn't anything major really, but it was a start for her. The book is Heinous Crimes, Immoral Minds By Aubrey Becker. I have my little review of it on here. If you want to know more it's also on Amazon. Also if you want to know more about it you can always ask me. I've thought about seeing if she would maybe give me a couple (if she still has some) to maybe giveaway on here just to get her name out there. Tell me what ya'll think.

  1. I haven't heard of Aubrey's book. Is it a mystery? I'd assume so from the title.

  4. Erika- That'd make her day. Thank you so much for the compliment. :) It's always nice to hear it.

    Missie- Thanks! I try to help I don't know how well she's doing with it, or her publisher is. So I was just trying to help. I figure this would help a little. If people read my stuff they'll see that and hopefully take a look.

  10. Darling, I just love reading about books I never heard of before and finding great reviews on books that I've been wanting to read. Plus making new friends is always a plus :)

    I think the most undervalued authors are the Indie Authors. Noah my lovely Igor created a wonderful badge for me, us!!

    Pleasant hopping to you,

  15. I can heartily recommend our own Tribute Books author, Molly Roe. She is the author of the young adult historical fiction, Call Me Kate: Meeting the Molly Maguires. It is the first of a trilogy of books about three sisters growing up in a coal mining town during the Civil War era. It also won the Mom's Choice Award.

    I also love the books of Tommie Lyn - a fantastic self-published author.

It is a great way to keep up with what is out there, and to see if my opinion on a new book is right on or completely off the mark. Congratulations to your friend on her book! I am a new follower!
