Friday means blog love….

Posted 8 October, 2010 by Danny in / 54 Comments

TGIF!!! Which of course means that it’s time for the BlogHop and the Follow Friday and a review of we did this week!

Let’s start with Jen’s Blog Hop.

She is so wonderful for hosting this event every week! Thanks so much, Jen, for all your work!!! This week Suko from Suko’s Notebook asks:

What’s your favorite beverage
while reading or blogging, if any?

Is it tea, coffee, water,
a glass of wine,
or something else?

Oh for me it’s COFFEE: Black. Hot. And lots of it! As the mother of three aged four and under, coffee is the only thing that keeps me moving and makes me lucid throughout the day. And I always have a least one mug of coffee wherever I am, be it in front of my blogging laptop or in my recliner with a good book!

Thanks, Suko and Jen, for the great question and the awesome hop!!!

Parajunkee is also running a Follow Friday meme that we love. This week she’s featuring Amy and Jennifer from Seduced by Books. This week’s question is:

How many reviews do you like to do a week?

We don’t have a set number of reviews that we do each week, although we try to have at least two posts a week as reviews. Since there are five of us that’s not usually a problem. More often we have the problem of finding free day on our posting calendar to schedule a review, but that’s a pretty good problem to have, I think. It means we’re all getting some time to read, which is the whole point, right?

We love networking so much! So please stop by both Parajunky’s and Amy and Jennifer’s sites as well and see who else is out and about doing the book blog networking thing!

Finally, we’d love to take the opportunity to welcome all the new faces and the old ones too! *waves* Glad you are here and we hope you like it here at the Bewitched Bookworms.

To get an impression about us, this was what we were up to at the Bookworms last week:
  • Cutie posted this week’s Notable Quotables post with a great quote from J.D. Salinger. Come see which quote she chose, why and join the meme!
  • We got a peek into Heather’s bookshelf with this week’s In My Mailbox meme.
  • Danny posted our 100th Book Review (WOOT!) on a book she’s been gushing about to us for a while, Personal Demons by Lisa Desrochers.
  • Danny also reviewed Clockwork Angel by Cassie Clare and no shock here, it was GOOD!!!!
  • We were honored to be the August winners of the I Love Your Blog Award from Black Nailed Reviews. Check out our interview here!!
  • Heather gave us her Waiting on Wednesday selection. It’s Port Mortuary by Patricia Cornwell and from the comments it sounds like Heather’s convinced a lot of readers to add that series to their TBR piles. Heather does know how to pick a book so check her post out!
  • Uhyesplease got the chance to review a great middle grade novel, Call Me Kate by Molly Roe that came to us on a blog tour. Come see why she really enjoyed it!
  • Heather and I were completely enthralled by a great paranormal/suspense book we were sent for review Jenny Pox by JL Bryan. Come see why you’ll want to read it too!!
  • There’s still time to enter our EPIC 500+ Followers contest! It’s running through October 15 and there will be NINE LUCKY WINNERS. Enter today!
So, you can see, it was another fabulous week here So if please take a moment, check us out and enjoy.

Now go and get lost….in a book!

Obsessive Reader by Night – Scientist at Day!
You can also find me on goodreads. I’d love to get to know you so, don’t be shy and say Hello!

  1. I am a new follower as I love your blog. I spent some time reading a few of your reviews and other posts and I will be back to visit again.

    Have a great weekend!

    Hopping by! I definitely cannot drink black coffee! My fiance used to drink espresso shots – about 30 a day! He cut right down to nothing about 18 months ago and hasn't touched it since. Bet your kids keep you busy! Hope you have a great weekend 🙂

    You guys have a great blog! If I had three kids, I'm sure I would be drinking lots of coffee too, ahaha. Anyway, I'm an old follower just popping in to say hi and have a great weekend!

    If you get a chance, you should check out my blog. I've got a giveaway going on that the moment.

  4. Yes, I'm hopping all over the place. This is fun though! 😀 I drink Mountain Dew when I cuddle up to read. Add a little chocolate with a good book and I'm in heaven!

  5. Thanks for stopping by, Inspired Kathy! I pooped over by your blog and you're not kidding, you have the motherload of give-aways listed there. So awesome!

  6. It's an acquired taste. I used to favor LOTS of cream and sugar but in an effort to prevent the ever-expansion of my waistline, I learned to love it. Now it really is my preferred way to drink it. Have a great weekend!!

  7. Thanks for hopping by! I can't believe you can work all day AND THEN go work out!! That's so impressive! If I don't make the work out happen first thing in the morning it just won't happen. Have a great weekend!!!

  8. Hooray! I'm so glad you found us, Anna! We LOVE meeting new and interesting people via the blog hop, so thanks for leaving us a comment so we can get to know you! Have a great weekend!

  9. Thanks, Mary!!! And I too enjoy a good root beer upon occasion, although I prefer them in glass bottles instead of cans. Only for root beer. Weird, hunh? Have a great weekend!!

    Great site! I absolutely love your header – book worms are so cute. 🙂

    When I am blogging, I like to drink diet coke. I am definitely not a coffee drinker! As for the other question, I try to put up 2 or 3 reviews a week. 🙂

    Here from the hop! Happy reading and have a great weekend!

  11. Just hoppin' on by! <3 I'm a new follower! 🙂

    I used to drink coffee as well (but well doused with flavored creamers), but it started to give me heartburn so I had to give it up and trade it for tea. =x

    I don't normally drink while reading; I'm afraid of spills! But when I write reviews, I must, must, MUST have a cold glass of Very Vanilla Soymilk with me. It's weird, I know, but I can't write one without it! 😛

    I'm stopping by from the Book Hop! And pardon my slang, but duuuuuuude. This blog is epic! I'm officially now following~
    Though I'm not a coffee drinker myself, I can appreciate the dedication and addiction. 🙂
    I look forward to reading your future posts!

    My recent post Book Blogger Hop 1!

  13. I have no kids but my small army of cats (4) manage to make it seem like I have 4 kids, especially since Thurman (the kitten) doesn't sleep much! So coffee all the way!
    Just hoping by, following and saying hi.
    If you have any scary or paranormal reviews, intereviews, or giveaways, then make sure to stop by my site and add them (anytime this month) to my Giving me the Creeps October page. I'm hoping to spread the word on some blogs and share the scary all month long!

    My recent post Book Blogger Hop and Follow Fridays not to mention Giving me the Creeps October Loot!

  14. Hopping by to follow! WOW! What an incredible blog! I LOVE your header. There is so much here that I don't even know where to begin….. I can see I'll be spending a good deal of time on this blog! Hope you'll drop by mine, not quite as much there YET but as soon as I can drag myself away from all these awesome book giveaways, I AM going to get back to my books lol. This is still all new to me, I had no idea there was all this giving away of books going on all this time! Well happy friday!!!

  15. Thanks for hopping by! And thanks. Although if you go back to February, you'll see that we've grown a lot in just a few months. I think it can be daunting when you first start out and see what everyone else is doing but if you just do your own thing, you'll see how quickly you grow. 🙂 Have a great weekend!
