Book Blogger Hop and Follow Friday!

   It's Friday, which means... Book Blogger Hop and Follow Friday! This blog is still but a few days old, so I'm still learning the tricks and secrets of the book blogging world. I thought these memes might be a nice way to get discovered! I've heard that Crazy-For-Books and Parajunkee's View host parties where you can visit, and be visited by other book bloggers, so I decided to try it! This is my very first hop and Follow Friday, so I'm not quite sure how it works - but I'm very excited!

This week's hop question is...

Do you listen to music when you read? If so, what are your favorite reading tunes?

   I actually get distracted by noises very easily while I read, so I don't really listen to music very often. I need almost complete silence when I read my books! It also kind of depends on what part of the book I'm at - if I'm still getting into it, silence is key. On the other hand, if I'm in my own little world while reading the best part of my book, some noise is OK. For the most part, though, I don't listen to music while I read.

So please, if you're here for Follow Friday or the hop, enjoy my new blog, comment (so I can visit your blog), and if you like what you read, consider following, and I'll do the same. Thanks!


  1. Hi, I hopped by to wish you a "hoppy Friday"! :)

  2. Hopping back! Thanks for visiting my blog. I'm following now and I'd like to say welcome to the book blogging world!

  5. Happy Friday! Hopping by to wish you a wonderful weekend!
    I am the same way when I read - music or t.v. are rather distracting, though I have learned to focus when someone is watching t.v., lol.

  6. Thanks everyone for the wonderful comments! I have to ask... out of all the templates I've had this morning (I've been quite indecisive, lol) which one do you like the best? Thanks!

  7. Just popping in via the hop to say hi! I prefer silence when reading as well, but I don't mind the tv sometimes. I'm a huge YA fan so I'm glad to have found your blog! Happy Friday:)

  8. Hi, just blog hopping through. Happy Friday!
    I listen to music mostly when I write, not when I’m reading. I listen to Celtic and Pirates of the Caribbean.

  10. I have a *very* active household with older kids who are now gone alot when my husband travels. I am so used to noise. When I am alone, reading or working, I generally have some sort of sound going. Usually a movie I know well so I don't have to watch, or my iPod. But yeah ... need sound.

  11. Sometimes I feel like yelling "Quite on the set!" In other words, I like silence too.

  23. I can't read, but if I attempt to, I can't be listening to music.

  24. Stopping by from parajunkee's Follow Friday! I'm a new follower and am trying to rebuild my own followers list after having to redo my entire blog over from scratch (still a work in progress) due to a malicious hacker attack. I'd appreciate any and all new followers and will follow back!

  28. Hey there & welcome to the wonderful world of book blogging! I totally agree with you about needing silence - though occasionally I can get so into a book that I don't hear someone calling my name from three feet away =) Lol. I look forward to seeing how your site grows! Happy Friday!

  32. Dropping by from follow friday. I like your blog and I am now following you. kittycrochettwo.blogspot.com

  33. What a nice little YA book blog.

    Like you I too like my quiet time when I read. I don't mind the outside noises unless they are unusual sounds, than I go check to see what all the noise is about. However, I never listen to music when I read because I prefer my quiet time. Now I will go be one of your followers.

  34. I don't tend to read and listen to music, but whenever I take the subway or bus, am waiting in line, etc, I tend to take the time to read. Silence isn't necessary for me, but I can see how others, like you, need it.

    Hope you can check out my hop too.

  35. Hello, glad to meet you via the Book Blogger Hop!

  36. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

    I'm following you now, too!

    Have a great day!
