Book Blogger Hop: Nov 5 – 11

The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Crazy-For-Books and is currently being hosted by Coffee Addicted Writer. Every Friday, a new question is posted for book bloggers to answer in the coming week. The purpose of the hop is connection and community. You can discover new blogs to follow, new books to read, and you may end up with some new followers, as well!


This Week’s Question

What is your least favorite social media app, and why?

Submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver’s Reviews.


When I first read this question, I thought it was going to be a tough one.

Then I remembered that Facebook exists.

Don’t get me wrong, I still have and maintain my Facebook, but it is solely to keep in touch with my family. We’re scattered throughout the States and none of us are really big on phone calls. So I have my Facebook to share photos of the kids and keep up with my family. To be fair, there are also a couple of groups that I follow, mostly bookish ones. And one for Lore Olympus because I’m obsessed with that Webtoon.

But I don’t like Facebook. I don’t like their lack of customer service. I don’t like their seemingly arbitrary blocking/flagging rules. And I especially don’t like their CEO.

That being said, the only social media I use religiously (too much, actually…) is Twitter and it’ll probably stay that way for a long time 😂

This Week’s Question

This week’s prompt submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver’s Reviews.


Well, Twitter pretty much owns my soul. I spend an exorbitant amount of time on that app. It’s probably on the verge of being unhealthy… 😅 I’ve met some awesome people there, though, so it can’t be all bad!

Twitter is honestly the best place to find me, but I do have an Instagram where I mostly post pictures of my cats, lol. When I have a better set up, I’m planning on going all in with bookstagram.

Other than that, I can also be found on Litsy and, of course, Goodreads! Feel free to add me on whatever platform you prefer. I’m always looking to make new bookish acquaintances 😃

Top Ten Tuesday: Authors With Fun Social Media

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish back in June 2010. It is currently hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and, as is stated on the blog, it was “born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.”

It’s time for another Top Ten Tuesday and the topic this week is a creative one! For this TTT, we have been tasked with making a list of authors with a fun social media presence. Which is funny because someone on Twitter had asked this question a few days ago, so I’ve actually been contemplating this question quite recently. I don’t know if I’ll get up to ten, but there are definitely quite a few authors I follow that are a gift to the internet! So let’s get into my list 😁

#1. Margaret Owen

Margaret Owen is the author of The Merciful Crow, one of my faves from last year, and she is hilarious. She also isn’t afraid to speak her mind about social issues, which I appreciate!

Top Ten Tuesday: Characters I Would Follow On Social Media

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish back in June 2010. It is currently hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and, as is stated on the blog, it was “born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.”

It’s time for another TTT and I’m loving the theme for this week! Dive into your imagination and think of the top ten characters you would like to follow on social media. Just thinking of my faves having a Twitter or an Insta makes me wistful because it’s not gonna happen but I WANT IT TO!

*cough* Anyways. To the list!

#1. Hermione Granger from the Harry Potter series

Can you imagine Hermione with a Twitter account? In a world where there is a magic-compatible Twitter? Calling out everyone’s bullsh*t and just generally being awesome.

#2. Zachary Ezra Rawlins from The Starless Sea

I bet Zachary would have an amazing book blog. He seems like the type that would be able to wax poetic about books that he loves. And Mirabel could help with the aesthetic! I would read it.

#3. Tuesday Mooney from Tuesday Mooney Talks to Ghosts

If Tuesday decided to have a social media presence, I feel like she would have a super weird and Gothic Instagram that I would drool over. Or just a weird blog that features interesting obituaries. I’d be all over it!

#4. Olive Torres from The Unhoneymooners

Olive’s humor is my humor, so I’m sure I would be trying to stifle laughter at work as I casually scrolled through her Twitter. Her sarcasm is on point and Twitter is basically built on sarcasm, so I’m sure she would thrive.

#5. Gideon Nav from Gideon the Ninth

Gideon is hilarious. This is just facts. And her dark humor would fit so well onto Twitter! I would follow her to get a good chuckle throughout the day. Also, maybe she would post random sword-fighting videos! Ugh, I would die.

#6. Jack Wolcott from the Wayward Children series

I’m having difficulty deciding what type of social media Jack would go for. Probably a blog about the science of reanimation or some such thing. Perhaps a Pinterest with just a bunch of macabre pins. Whatever form her social media presence would take I would jump all over. She’s just so intensely interesting and I want to know more!

#7. January Scaller from The Ten Thousand Doors of January

I don’t know why, but I feel like January would have a beautiful Instagram. Especially if she’s travelling around between multiple doors and taking photos along the way. Can you imagine how amazing that would be?! Instant follow.

#8. Jess Brightwell from The Great Library series

I bet Jess would have a killer book blog. The man is obsessed with book! And he’s clever and funny, so I’m sure he’d have rather engaging posts. His love of books would shine on his blog. I can’t imagine not being drawn to that!

#9. Fie from The Merciful Crow

I just want to see Fie destroy anyone and everyone on a large, social platform. Probs Twitter. She is short and to the point, so Twitter would be perfect for her. And her dry wit would fit in so well. She would be a complete troll to all the privileged asses and I am here for it.

#10. Maia Tamarin from Spin the Dawn

Maia would have THE most amazing Instagram (and probably Etsy shop)! I want to see pictures of all the beautiful clothing that she sews. I mean, I have a visual in my head, but I want to actually see them. I would scroll through her Insta all the time and dream of being able to afford her clothing.


Are there any characters you would love to follow on social media? Did you do your own Top Ten Tuesday? Let me know in the comments!

And, as always, happy reading!
