18 & Over Book Blogger Follow is a weekly feature that begins on Fridays and runs through the weekend, hosted by Crystal from Reading Between the Wines. This is a Friday blog hop with the objective to find and visit other book blogs that share the same interest as you, namely books geared towards the 18 & over crowd, and make some new friends!

How to join in:
-You should run a book blog that features and reviews mostly adult reads, some Y.A.’s are okay but 18 & over adult reads should be your majority.

-Copy the html for the button above and place it at the top of your post.
-List & answer the ‘Question of the Week.’
-Place your name and blog title in the linky below and the url for a direct link to your post
-Visit the other blogs on the list and say 'Hi!' Following each blog is not mandatory but I know it is always appreciated, and if someone comments saying they’re a new follower it’s polite to follow back. J It’s always nice to spread the 18 & Over Book Blogging love!
-Contact me (readingbetweenthewines10 at gmail dot com) with any questions!

Question of the Week: Do you feel the need to write a review for your personal reads, as oppose to requested reviews, or are there some books you read just for the joy of reading? 

Yes and no. 
With a lot of review requests sometimes it's nice not 'having' to write a review on a book and just enjoying the ride. That being said though, I like to share my opinion on books (Obviously, right?) so even if I don't write up a full review I will usually at least leave a small paragraph or so on what I thought about the book on Goodreads and maybe Amazon. It might sit for a while because I'd rather be reading more books then sitting at the computer writing but eventually I will get to it. lol 

What about you? Join the follow by linking up below and share! 


  1. I'm a fan of the quickie thoughts on personal books :) Great question this week! Book Savvy Babe

  2. I am with you on the yes and no. I mean if I choose a requested review of course I will do it, but with personal books it just depends. I am with you on the quick little paragraph. It is nice to put a little something so people know how you feel and if they want more then they can comment. I love goodreads for that.

    BTW, sorry it's been so long. Glad to be getting back into the swing of things!

  3. I need to get better about posting reviews/thoughts on amazon and goodreads

  4. I wrote another comment on my blog about this week's meme because it really brought up an important topic, I think, and it's very, very common in the book blogger community, I've found.

    I have a friend who works hours and hours each day just to keep the content great, the giveaways awesome, to get in touch with authors, have guest posts, etc. She doesn't get paid, and often ends up paying a lot out of pocket for expenses.

    I think it's easy to take simple reviewing and even dedicated reviewing to a "work" level, which is really when the enjoyment factor becomes problematic.

    GREAT question for this week's blog follow, hon!

  5. I agree with you there Crystal :) And I should take a lesson from your book. I tend to write reviews right after I finish a book, though most the time it's because I tend to forget things >.< I have a very bad memory! Lol Great question this weeks, gets us all thinking :) Have a great weekend!

  6. I review everything I read. I review so that I can remember what happened in a book when carrying on with a series.

    Have a great weekend Crystal.
