Hop & Follow Friday!!

It's Friday again and you know what that means!! It's time to hop around and make some new blog friends!! If it's your first visit to Stories & Sweeties, WELCOME!!! Please feel free to link in the comments so I can visit you, too! :)

First off, we have Follow Friday hosted by Parakjunkee's View! (click the logo to get there!)Here's her featured question of the week:
My question for you guys, what is your high fashion book? --- translation --- best book cover ever.

This is a tough one, but when someone mentions awesome book covers, these two are the first that come to mind right now for me. I just finished the second book, and I swear after I closed that last page, I just sat there staring at the gorgeous cover. Not to mention, Fallen was printed with that velvety soft coating they've been using on some book these day that i LOVE. Makes you want to keep the book with you all day and pet it like a lap dog. Here's hoping they print Torment in the same way.

Next up is the Book Blog Hop hosted by Crazy-for-Books! (click the logo to get there!)This week, she asks: When you write reviews, do you write them as you are reading or wait until you have read the entire book?

I take a few notes while reading sometimes, and if I find a particular quote that I want to mention in my review I scribble that down, but for the most part, I write the whole review after I finish. Sometimes I even wait a few days to let the book sink in fully and gather my thoughts and feelings about it.

Thanks for hopping by!

  2. Hello, Happy Hopping.

    Your blog is too cute. I also love cupcakes, & brownies, & cheesecake. LOL!

    I'm also a new follower of yours. I can't wait to see some good recipes and to try them out!

    I wait tell the book is completely finished before I start ranting and raving about it.

  6. Thanks for stopping by my hop, I'm following you now on twitter and you're blog. You're blog makes me want to make cupcakes. Yum! I'll be putting Crave on my list and I'll be back for a review on Waking Rose. I'm grateful for Goodreads so I can keep tabs on what I want to read. Then I transfer it to my notebook that I carry to the library.


  7. Happy Hop! I always wait until I've finished before reviewing. Hope you've had a great week so far :)
