Book Blogger Hop: July 30 - Aug 2, 2010

Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop is a weekly event hosted by Jennifer at Crazy for Books. Its intention is for book bloggers to hop to other blogs, spread the word about their blogs, talk about the books and authors and make new friends. Each week, there is a question to answer.

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

My answer:

My favourite new-to-me author this year is Anthony Capella. He was born in Uganda and graduated from St. Peter's College in Oxford with a First in English Literature. I've so far read two of his four novels (the forth, The Empress of Ice Cream, is actually coming out today): The Wedding Officer and The Food of Love, I have only reviewed the latter so far. I like how he goes about serious issues in a unique light-but-not-so-light style. He is also a very vivid narrator, which I also find superb.

I am new to book blogging, so I haven't posted a lot yet, but hop by and see what I 've done so far. I've also got some beginner probems with technicalities, such as the layout of the posts. As you can see, the spacing just doesn't obey me:) I hope that doesn't scare anyone away:) So, feel free to coment on that too, any advice would be apreciated also.

  3. Hello, found you at the hop. Just stopped by for a look see.
    I think the hop is a marvelous way to meet bloggers both old and new. This week my trip to the Hop is brought to you by the number 8.
    I have a contest going on at

  4. I'm visiting from the hop! If you use blogger in "draft" (i think it's something you can click on at the bottom right when you're on your dashboard?) the layout will be a little more cooperative. I think you blog looks nice though. Welcome to the book blogging community! :)

  5. Thanks for hopping by, everyone.

    @Em: Thnaks for the advice and the complimet.
