Blog Hopping

Today I wanted to chat about reading blogs and blog hopping. I have been reading various author and review blogs for four years now.  In the beginning, I added new blogs to my feed-reader almost every week. But over the past year, my blog hopping and finding new-to-me blogs has all but diminished. I check my feed-reader 1-2 times per week, and I do a lot of skimming. One thing I’ve noticed lately is a mismatch between the blogs I follow and the type of books that I like to read. What has happened is I now follow a lot of blogs that don’t review books in the genres I most enjoy reading. I don’t know if their reading habits changed over time, or if I just tend to read too narrow a scope of books, but it’s not really working for me any more.

So I’m on the hunt for new-to-me blogs. I’m looking for blogs that primary focus on book reviews and discussions in the paranormal romance and urban fantasy genres. I’d love your feedback!

What blogs to you read religiously? Can you suggest a blog/s that focus on reviews of paranormal romance and urban fantasy books?

Happy Reading!
