The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book-related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to their own blog.
I could go on and on, but I’ll stick to a few of my favorite fiction books only. You can click on the covers to learn more about them.
My favorite fiction book of all time is:
The Door Into Summer is the book that introduced me to time travel, and I liked the idea of someone trying to change their circumstances by changing the time they are in. And it’s by one of the great science fiction icons, Robert Heinlein.
I talk about Jodi Taylor’s books a lot, and this is the one that started it all. This is the first book in the Chronicles of St. Mary’s series. This is about a hilarious group of time-traveling historians. While it makes you laugh, it also makes you cry.
This is not the first book in Fannie Flagg’s Elmwood Springs Series, but it’s my favorite. Elderly Elner Shimfissle falls out of her fig tree and finds herself having a near-death experience. This is absolutely laugh-out-loud funny.
I devoured this series when I was 11 or 12. Magical wardrobes? Talking animals? Doors into other lands? Count me in. I reread it a lot even now that I’m pushing 60.
My favorite self-published book. Now, I admit I’m the editor, but this book has 340 Amazon reviews, which is not an easy thing to do for self-published authors. Gail Meath is amazing. This is the first book in the Jax Diamond Mysteries series, about a 1920s private detective and his German Shepherd partner. Book two, Framed, is already out. Book three is about to come out in September.
How about you? What are your favorite books?
