Book Hop & Follow Friday (6)

Happy Friday! This week I'm participating in a few memes. Book Blogger Hop is hosted over at Crazy for Books. Follow My Book Blog Friday is hosted by Parajunkee's View.


Book Blogger Hop

Tell us about one of your posts from this week and give us a link so we can read it (review or otherwise)! 
I just realized, I haven't posted a review this week! I feel so bad about that, lol! I'll definitely get one up tomorrow. If I have to pick one from this week, though, I guess I'd probably pick my IMM post from Sunday. I cannot stress how awesome library book sales can be. If you're on a budget, it's a great way to go in and get a whole bunch of books for what the price of one or two new ones will cost you at the bookstore. Ask around at your local library to see if they have a sponsoring "Friends of the Library" program, and see if they're interested in hosting a book sale! My library earns anywhere from $15,000 to $20,000 extra a year from our book sale weekend, and it's all made off of books donated from the community.



What is your favorite romance-hero type? Stereotype wise. Do you like the strong silent type or the brute macho man?
I have to admit, I like the cocky smartass, with a little bit of that brutish manliness thrown in. Muscles, long hair, and an accent are definitely a bonus as well. I love the hero that knows what he wants, and just goes for it, no questions asked. No wimpy whining. No "But you're better without me!" speeches. Just good ole "I love you, I want you, I'll have you" from all those cheesy romance novels I secretly devour. ;D

  4. Hopping by :)

    I LOVE library book sales! I always make out like a bandit. One of my local libraries has a sale and on the final day it's "Everything you can fit in a bag for $1" Talk about a score!

    Hope you're having a happy weekend! - Small Review

  5. @Leanna: Aw, thank you! =3 And thanks for stopping by!

    @Zakiya: Thank you for "hopping" by! ;D

    @Jenny: Aren't they just the best? I love my heroes brimming with confidence. ;D And I totally have a secret stash of romance novels, hidden away in the closet so no one judges my addiction. XD I leave all my "intelligent" books out instead.

    @Small Review: The last day is always the best! Books by the bag or box are awesome. I always end up going on the "preview" night for members and snag up all the good books first. ;D Thanks for stopping by!

  7. The Post Is:

    This week I reviewed a work of suspense fiction that is such a wide departure from the thriller genre that I feel everyone – fans and foes of the genre alike – really should investigate.

    Hop on over to my blog and see for yourself – http://www.howardsherman.net
