Weekend Blog Hops - 28 September 2018

It's the weekend once more. That means it's time for my book-blogger hopping.

Do you sneak a peek at the number of views your posts have gotten?
Sometimes, if I'm scheduling new posts and glance at the view numbers, but it's not a big thing to me, so I don't monitor it obsessively.

Opening sentence:
I am not a New Yorker, and I want to go home.




 


 
From page 56:
Somehow we're at Macy's, which is wild--because this isn't just Macy's. It's the Macy's, straight out of my TV screen.



My Current Read
What If It's Us
Becky Albertalli & Adam Silvera

Arthur is only in New York for the summer, but if Broadway has taught him anything, it’s that the universe can deliver a showstopping romance when you least expect it.

Ben thinks the universe needs to mind its business. If the universe had his back, he wouldn’t be on his way to the post office carrying a box of his ex-boyfriend’s things.

But when Arthur and Ben meet-cute at the post office, what exactly does the universe have in store for them?

Maybe nothing. After all, they get separated.

Maybe everything. After all, they get reunited.

But what if they can’t quite nail a first date . . . or a second first date . . . or a third?

What if Arthur tries too hard to make it work . . . and Ben doesn’t try hard enough?

What if life really isn’t like a Broadway play?

But what if it is?

  4. Sounds good. This book is new to me. I hope you enjoy it. This week I am featuring the latest in a long-running science fiction space opera - Uncompromising Honor by David Weber. Happy reading!

  5. The authors alone would make me pick this book up to take a closer look. I really like the teasers you shared as well. And that synopsis has me sold. Thank you for bringing What If It's Us to my attention, Nicki.

    I haven't paid attention to my stats in so long. When I did, it just made me crazy. It was like falling down a rabbit hole. Haha.

    I hope you have a great weekend!

  6. As for stats, my book blogs never come close to the popularity of my science blogs, so I don't pay any attention. My books blogs are a labor of love.

    I like the first line. I've thought that myself when in New York City.

    1. No, it's not vital to me either. Low post views wouldn't stop me talking about the things I love.

  7. I would love to see a play on Broadway. A Drama and a Romance are good. Enjoy your book.

    1. I saw Legally Blonde the Musical on Broadway when I was in NYC back in 2007. Great fun.

  8. I have to say that the Macy's in New York is one great place. I do keep an eye on my analytics to see what is working and what is not. I often have to report these data to sponsors and advertisers. See what book MK is featuring at Girl Who Reads

    1. Ah yes, with sponsors and such I can see it would be more important.
