Follow Friday/Blog Hop (5) and Weekly Recap

It’s Follow Friday! Hosted by the always amazing Parajunkee’s View, this is a chance to meet new blogger friends and grow our networks.

This week’s question is “If you are a fan of Science Fiction what is your favorite book? If you haven’t read Science Fiction before…any inkling to? Anything catch your eye??”

I haven’t read a lot of sci-fi. I’ve had a hard time getting into it, particularly if it’s heavier on the science end. I do really want to read Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card and Across the Universe by Beth Revis. I suppose if you count steampunk as sci-fi (which I do), I did really like The Alchemy of Stone by Ekaterina Sedia.

Be sure to check out this week’s featured blogger Dreaming About Other Worlds and the rest of the participants.

Book Blogger Hop
Hosted by Crazy For Books, this blog hop is all about connecting with our fellow bloggers. Each week we discuss a book-related question and hop around to other blogs to see their answers.

I’ll post the question and answer for this week when the hop post goes live.

Keep hopping and following and I hope to see you soon!
