Book Blogger HopFollow My Book Blog Friday

The Book Blogger Hop and Follow My Book Blog Friday are places for book bloggers and readers to connect and find new book-related blogs. Grab the button, post about the meme and follow as many book blogs as you like.
This week's question from the Hop : What are your feelings on losing followers? Have you ever stopped following a blog?
Well, of course it makes me sad to lose a follower. And I can't help but wonder what I could have done differently. But I don't want to lose sleep over it either. I'd drive myself crazy if I think too much on it. And yes, I've stopped following blogs. The ones which I haven't seen any new content or updates in months.

This week's question from Parajunkee's View : Who are your favorite authors?
It depends on the genre for me. To name a few : Garth Nix, Nora Roberts, Jane Austen.

Since I last hopped ...
New blogs I'm following :


  1. Fellow Jane Austen fan here!
    I agree with you, better things to lose sleep over than blog followers (like reading deep into the night).

  2. Just hopping through! I'm a new follower and would love it if you would follow me back at ( I have never stopped following a blog thus far and some of my favorite authors right now are Elizabeth Kostova, Suzanne Collins, J.K. Rowling, Kelly Armstrong, Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl.

    Have a great weekend:)

  3. Hi!! Just stopping by to say have a great weekend!

  4. I agree, it's tough losing a follower. You're always left wondering what you did wrong but most of the time it's nothing personal. A few of my favorite authors are Kelley Armstrong, Keri Arthur and Rachel Vincent.

    I'm your newest follower from the hop! You can check out my answers to this week's questions at Rabid Reads or follow me on Twitter. Have a great weekend!

  5. It is so nice that you don't stress over the follower numbers..I do have some amount of worries when people drop, or my number doesn't increase in a while....

  6. I'm always a little bummed when I lose followers but make every effort to
    turn every lost follower into a learning experience so I can improve my

    On the flip side, I only stop following people when they give me a reason to
    such as being totally off message or being too controversial in an negative,
    over-the-top way.

    Happy Book Blogger Hop Friday!

  12. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm the same as you without really ever un-following unless they are really outdated. However I will unfollow on twitter if they post non-stop pointless stuff. That drives me nuts. I hope you have a great weekend!!

  13. Hi,

    Thanks for stopping by - returning the favour.

    I am the same as you, I wouldn't want to lose sleep over losings followers but at the same time I wonder what I did wrong. But on the other hand I know that everyone varies in tastes and that people's tastes change so I have to NOT let it get to me.
