Hoppin' Around! Blog 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 the featured question of the week:
Who are your favorite authors?

Oh, I have tons! Lauren Kate, Maggie Stiefvater, Anastasia Hopcus, Kiersten White, Kelley Armstrong, Alice Hoffman, Amy Tan, Linda Buckley-Archer...and Louisa May Alcott, just to name a few!

Next up is the Book Blog Hop hosted by Crazy-for-Books! (click the logo to get there!)This week, she asks: What are your feelings on losing followers? Have you ever stopped following a blog?

Huh, interesting question, I guess I've never really given it a lot of thought. I've never unfollowed a blog myself, but imagine if someone stops following they must have their reasons, whether they follow too many blogs and need to cut some or I am simply boring them to death! :) I really appreciate all my lovely followers and I hope they stick with me, though!!

Thanks for hopping by! Don't forget to sign up for a chance to win Beautiful Darkness or Crescendo (link at the top right sidebar).

  5. Hopping through. I love Maggie and Kiersten White too. I keep meaning to read Anastasia Hopcus.

  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!
