Book Blogger Hop July 2 - 5

Crazy for Books hosts a weekly blogger hop! A what?
In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and find new book-related blogs that we may be missing out on! This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books! It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs that they may not know existed!

Each week there is a question and answer session to help us get to know each other.

This week's: Tell us your name and why you started blogging

My name is Julia. I first kept a blog about, oh 8 years ago. It was more of an online journal though I occasionally did book reviews. When I found I started to review there once I got more involved in the site. Then I got even more involved in the site and started joining groups and reading challenges. This led to the start up of The Broke and the Bookish. Working on that had been so fun that I decided to get serious about reviewing all the books I read for the various challenges I complete. So this happened.

Some interesting posts to get you started:
At Least once in a lifetime challenge: The Hunger Games
The Name Game: Promise Me Tonight
Julia review's The Spymaster's Lady (this one is at the blog I co-author with about 20 other 20 somethings)

Enjoy your time here!!
