Book Blogger Hop - 5/11 - 5/17


Question of the Week:

Could you ever pick a favorite book or is it like choosing your favorite child? (submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver's Reviews)

My Answer:

I think it would be like choosing a favorite child.  I can't seem to play favorites when it comes to children or books.  :)

Without naming my favorite, though, I will say that any book that touches on family would fall in the favorite category.

That being said, I have a quite a few un-named favorites.  :)

  1. Pretty much any book I enjoyed becomes a favorite in some way. So yeah, I can't answer that question! Lol!

    Here's my Book Blogger Hop

  2. I couldn't name an all time favorite either.

  3. Yeah, I can't pick ONE favorite! In classics and literary fiction, I do have one that tops the rest: "Jane Eyre". But I also read genre fiction (a/k/a popular fiction), and I have LOTS of favorites there!

    Comparing books to one's children is really cool, Elizabeth! It's a very apt metaphor, especially in my case, because I actually hug my favorite books! Lol.

    Hope you have a WONDERFUL weekend!! HUGS TO YOU, TOO!! <3 <3 <3 :) :) :)

    1. Hi Maria...great to see you on the HOP today.

      That is good you can choose a top one.

      It is too difficult to choose one book since I like all of the ones I read or I wouldn’t read them. LOL!!

      Thanks for commenting, Maria.

  4. I have so many favorite books that I treat like my tiny children! I don't have children, so I love and protect my physical books like they're my own. Also, I don't buy physical copies very often, but when I do, I make sure to take care of them the best I can.

  5. That's a really great question. Thank you for asking it. I think it's really hard and nuanced. But I definitely have some favorites here and there. LOL.

    1. Favorites are difficult, because I love every book I read. :)

  7. Absolutely. It's too hard to choose just one.

    1. Not being able to choose seems to be the general consensus. :)

      Thanks for commenting, Nicki.

  8. Great answer! I definitely don't like choosing favourites because I think there are way too many to choose from and there's always a new book just around the corner that I may end up liking even more.

    It's great that you have a favourite 'genre' though - books that touch on family are great and it's nice to know what you enjoy.

    Feel free to check out my Book Blogger Hop answer if you wish! :)

    1. It is difficult to choose, but I am "choosy" about my genre. :)

  9. It's absolutely like choosing a favorite child. Choosing a favorite author--same. There are times I dive into Stephen King, well not much anymore, but at one time. Other times, I'm all over Barbara Kingsolver. I'm moody, so maybe that's part of the reason for my answer, but I love good writing and good writers, so there's no favorite.

    1. Oh....definitely as difficult to choose a favorite author since I have a few. :)

      Love your answer about good writing and good writers....PERFECT!!

  10. I think I could choose a favorite group but definitely not a favorite book! It might be easier to choose a favorite child.

  11. Totally agree. I missed this week since I was launching two books in May--two books in one month is something I'll never do again. I'll be tackling the next question on Monday.
