Follow Friday & Book Blogger Hop (20)

, by Kt Clapsadl

Book Blogger HopOn fridays I participate in both Follow Friday and the Book Blogger Hop.

Follow Fridays is hosted by Parajunkee's View, and is just Fridays.

The Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Crazy-for-Books, and runs Friday to Monday. There are new rules for the hop, so make sure to check out Crazy for Books for the details.


This week's question from Crazy for Books:

What is the thing you like most about reading book blogs? Is it the reviews, author guest posts, articles, giveaways, or something else entirely?

I'm going to have to answer with all of the above. It isn't just one thing that makes me enjoy other book blogs, it's the combination.

This week's question from Parajunkee:

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

The author that jumps out the most for me in answer to this question is Karen Chance. I LOVE her books, but I never really hear anyone else talking about them. She has two series, but they are both based on the same world and characters.  Cassandra is a clairvoyant and Dorina is a Dhampire. These books are definitely worth checking out. I would however recommend reading Cassandra's books first as they are a better foundation to the world Karen Chance has built.
The order of books is:

Cassandra Palmer Series:
Touch the Dark
Claimed by Shadow
Embrace the Night
Curse the Dawn

Dorina Basarab Series:
Midnight's Daughter
Death's Mistress
