Too Busy to Blog!

But there is always time to HOP!

Book Blogger Hop

It has been a while since I participated in the Book Blogger Hop. Jennifer has added a new "question of the week" feature since I last hopped.

This week's question is: "Who is your favorite new-to-you author so far this year?"

My answer is A. J. Cronin.  That's kind of a funny answer, since Cronin published his first novel in 1931 and his last in 1978. So he is definitely not a new author -- just new to me.  I read Three Loves this February and reviewed it here. I enjoyed it so much that I added Cronin to my list of authors whose works I plan to read in their entirety, or as close to it as I can manage.

Happy Hopping!

It sounds like I need to read some of A. J. Cronin's work. I hope your life slows down soon.

A J Cronin is new to me so I will note it down. My current one is Dorje Yudon Yuthok since I'm reading her biography House of the Turquoise Roof. Hopped from the Friday Blog Party. Bring your villain over to Aisle B. I'll be revealing my villain before the night is through ;O

Hi Rose City, you are one of my dependable, always worth reading blogs. Time to stop by on the hop & see what you are up to. I love that you are reading Valley of the Dolls--I read it at camp when I was 15--quite the illicit thrill! Have a great weekend!

The name A. J. Cronin sounds very familiar. I'm sure I must have read something of his. I'll have to look him up!

Thanks for hopping my way.

I haven't read Three Loves yet. I'll have to track a copy down. Your Cronin books look lovely, mine are all odd editions picked up here and there. You're doing a great job making Cronin's work more widely known.
