Following Friday (#1)

Until now Fridays were about The Book Blogger Hop, but now a new meme has appeared: Follow Me Friday hosted by Parajunkee, so the collective names of the blog follower/hopper memes from now on will be
Following Friday!

So first off let me welcome you old and new readers/followers!

Welcome to Ex Libris, humble home of my reading and bookaholic addiction :-)

I'm very glad you stopped by and wander off no more dear blog visitors, take a moment and look around.

July is "Spotlight on Paranormal Romance" month at Ex Libris, which means lots and lots of author interviews, guest posts and GIVEAWAYS all through July, so become a follower and keep your eyes open for the "Spotlight on" posts! It will be lots of fun, you won't want to miss it!

And now let me tell you about these two fantastic memes, aimed to bring book bloggers together:

The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly event created by the amazing Jennifer at Crazy for Books, where we hop from blog to blog discover great new blogs, follow them and spread the love of the book blogging community.

If you'd like to sign up your own blog or to find other fantastic blogs, head on over to Jen's blog.

This Hop's weekly question is: Tell us about some of your favorite authors and why they are your favorites!

Well I'll try to give a short recap by genres I read:

- :urban fantasy: I have two absolute favourite authors: one of them is Kelley Armstrong (those who know me know that I can't shut up about my love and enthusiasm(=obsession) of KA and her Women of the Other World series). She was the one who introduced me to the genre and to this day she remains one of my fav UF authors. Why? Because her writing flows effortlessly, it is bitingly funny and witty, and her stories grip you the moment you start reading! Every KA book is an adventure. Ooops, as you can see I really can't shut up about my KA fandom :-D

The other UF favourite author is Ilona Andrews. I just discovered her this year but instantly became a fan of her Kate Daniels series. She is truly brilliant. Her writing is exciting and layered and her humour shines through the story. Love the snarky one liners between the H/H :-D

Well since talking only about my UF favourite authors took this long, I will spare you my fan squeeking about other genres for now, but don't rest easily, I'll come back mwahaha... (don't ask me, I must have had something in my lunch...)

Follow My Book Blog Friday (or shortly simply Follow Friday) is a fairly new creation. Rachel at Parajunkee's View created this new meme to incite book bloggers to interact more and follow each other.

It is my first time joining this meme. It is always great discovering interesting new blogs and of course it warms my heart if new followers join me and follow Ex Libris. :-)
