Friday Blog Hops!

It's midnight on Thursday here...so that means it's technically Friday! So time for the Blog Hop and Follow Friday!
If this is your first time here, welcome! I'm Ava, and this is my humble little book blog Book Infinity. :D Comment if you're stopping by through the hop!

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee's View, just go on over there and sign up!



The Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jennifer at Crazy-For-Books.

Book Blogger Hop
As part of the Book Blogger Hop, you must answer a question about yourself.
This week's question:
Who is your favorite new-to-you author so far this year?

My favorite new author is Lauren Oliver. She wrote Before I Fall (see my review here), and has a new book coming up called Delirium. (I know I've done a lot of posts where I've talked about her books, but I love them!) I discoved Before I Fall through blogging, and it was on the 2010 Debut Author Challenge list. I'd heard so many good reviews, so it was the first one I read. I have to say I haven't rated a book 5 stars in a VERY long time. But Before I Fall was just that good. Lauren Oliver is a brilliant author and I've heard great things about her future releases as well.

  1. Oh man! I cannot WAIT to read Delirium! I haven't read Before I Fall, though. Isn't it written in poems? Or am I getting it confused with another book? >.> (hate it when I do that. Doesn't happen often, but when it does happen, it reallllly miffs me. I will NOT go on about how often I am miffed at myself. XD)

    (PS - Did I tell you how much I LOOOOOOVE this new layout you've got going? GORGEOUS! :D)

  4. I've heard so many awesome comments about Before I Fall (I'm still on the waitlist for it at the library so haven't had a chance to see for myself), and the premise of Delirium sounds fantastic as well!
