Book Blogger Hop and Weekly Wrap-Up


Well, I only got 1 book review done this week, Lilian's Story by Kate Grenville. Grenville is quite a prominent Australian author, so if you are looking to read a review of something slightly different then make sure you have a read of it.

It was a big week for me though; I spent the weekend at the Sydney Writers Festival. It was a wonderful weekend (except for the weather), with friends and books and authors. I saw some really wonderful events. You can read about my experiences at the Sydney Writers Festival here.

Other than that I had my usual memes; Lights, Camera, Blog Action and Book Beginnings on Friday. I also posted about my upcoming 1 year blogoversary and 25 things about me. 

I hope to spend this weekend catching up on reviews and reading. I am going into hospital on Monday for some surgery, and will spend 3 weeks recovering. I am not sure whether or not I will get much blogging done or not. I'll see how I feel. I suspect I will either be blogging all the time or not at all. So if I am not around a lot, please don't forget about Page Turners. I love to have people come and visit me so stick around and cheer me up. I will be trying to schedule things as much as possible.

Thanks to everyone who popped by over the last week, I hope I get to meet lots more new bloggers this blogger hop.


The Book Blogger Hop is hosted at Crazy for Books. In the spirit of the Friday Follow, I thought it would be cool to do a Book Blogger Hop to give us all book bloggers and readers a chance to connect and find new blogs that we may be missing out on!

So, I created this weekly BOOK PARTY where book bloggers and readers can connect to find new blogs to read, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books! It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs that they may not know existed! So, grab the logo, post about the Hop on your blog, and start PARTYING!!

If you start following someone through the Hop, leave a comment on their blog to let them know! Stop back during the week to see other blogs that are added! And, most importantly, the idea is to HAVE FUN
