Follow Friday & Blog Hop 30/7

Every week Parajunkee hosts "Follow my Book Blog Friday", a feature where you can get to know other bloggers. Last week I found so many great blogs, looking forward to do the same now.

So, welcome to my blog! I haven't been blogging that long. I started with a blog in Norwegian in January, and this month I started out with this one in English. You can read more about me here.

I also have an ongoing contest, which ends August 27th. The prizes are Clockwork Angel, Torment, Halo and other highly anticipated books. The details of the contest is here.

Jennifer at Crazy for Books is hosting Book Blooger Hop on fridays.
Book Blogger Hop

This weeks question: Who is your favorite new-to-you author so far this year?

That was a tricky question. I have discovered so many new authors this year, it is hard to just name one. I think I will go for Laurell K. Hamilton, but had you asked me the same question next week, I might have answered differently.

Have a wonderful friday everyone.

New follower from the blog hop.

I like Laurell K. Hamilton, too, though I'm only at Obsidian Butterfly in the Anita Blake series. I keep being told it's not really going to be my thing soon and it will get "all porno" (their words, swear). How far in the series are you?

Thank you for all the lovely comments :) I wish each and everyone of you a wonderful and fantastic weekend :)!

@Larissa: Thank you so much, I am so grateful. And you have an amazing blog! I am really looking forward to hearing you talk on the blog conference next week.

@Vampire Book Club: I am on book 5 ( Bloody Bones). So far I am enjoying the series and I love Hamilton's writing, but I have heard the same as you with regards to the porn.
When I had read the first book, I was so hooked so I ordered every book in the series - so I guess I will have to finish the series. I am reading other series like The Midnight Breed with much more explicit scenes, but it doesn't bother me so far.

Thank you for all your kind comments. I am sorry I haven't answered them yet. We are painting the house, so the days just fly .

Carri: I have a lot of friends from up north. It is beautiful up there and the people are so friendly. I live in Lillestrøm, around 15 minutes with train from Oslo.

And it should say carrie, not carri.
