The Hop Not Taken

 Let me introduce myself.
Bonjour! Enchanté! Bienvenidos!

I am Debnance at Readerbuzz.
I love to read.
I especially love children's books,
travel memoirs,
 literary fiction
creative nonfiction,
and books about happiness.

 I'd love to visit your blog. 
If you like, follow me and leave a comment
and I will hop over and follow you.

I also invite you to:
Befriend me at Goodreads.
Follow me at Twitter.
 Befriend me at Facebook

I plan to try my own hop today.
Here's what I'm going to do:
I'll start by going to a blog I know and love.
I'll randomly pick a new-to-me blog
who has visited that blog.
And so on...and so on...
The Hop Not Taken, if you will.

If you are stopping by,
I'd love it if you could help me with this:
What is a wonderful book
you've read this year
 that you recommend?
I need ideas!


  1. If you like travel memoirs, I'd recommend Grounded by Seth Stevenson about his attempt (with his girlfriend) to travel around the world without using air travel.

  2. hi Im a new follower through FF! have a great weekend!

    PS-if you want to add another language to your already varied welcomes, BEM VINDOS is portuguese ;P Have a great time!

  14. Thank you for all the suggestions. I seem to be reading only children's books these days. I love children's books, but I'd like to read something else now and then!

  15. Hi, I'm already a follower. It was a long week and now a relaxing sunny week-end. Please hop over to my blog and take part in my poll about Banned Books. Thanks.

  16. Hi, thanks for stopping by my blog. I would recommend "The Book Thief by Markus Zusak" for you.

  17. I'm glad to come across so many book blogs. I plan to check out as many as I can. My best read was "The Whisperers" by Figes. I have reviewed it and many others on my blog.

  18. Just hopping by….

    Stop by my blog if you get a chance for the answer to this week’s questions…it was my question that was chosen…pretty neat.
    I also have a lot of review you may want to check out.

    Happy Hopping, Everyone….hop on over to my blog to see MY answer to MY question.

  19. hi I'm a new follower, found you tru the Follow Friday! If you have time, come visit me at

    have a great blogging day!


  20. Hi! Thank you for stopping by my blog and following! I've followed you back every where I could -- your post was too lovely to NOT get props for! ^^

    I would highly, highly, HIGHLY recommend the Wings series by Aprilynne Pike. I've only recently read her novels last summer and was instantly hooked. I'm an unashamed advertiser for her now! I loved her series THAT MUCH. It's about faeries and it had been my first faerie book, and I was completely in love (even though her idea of faeries clashed with my preconceived notions of dew drops and tiny little beings =P)

    Have an awesome day, and happy reading! <3

  21. How fun is this HOP idea! Have you read Waiting for Columbus? by Thomas Trofimuk. I enjoyed it a lot.


Thank you for stopping by and sharing your thoughts!
