Book Blogger Hop and Weekly Overview

Book Blogger Hop

"Do you ever wish you would

have named your blog

something different?"

Answering this question feels like a betrayal to my blog. 

It took me forever to come up with a name for my blog.  Stuff like Book Blog, Urban Fantasy Corner, Epic Fantasy Books, and silly stuff like that with lots of variations with the word Fantasy in it.  After a while I decided to settle on something that would leave space for my blog to expand out side of my obvious love of Urban and Epic Fantasy.

The name Book Whispers doesn’t seem to have any variations from other bloggers so I’m really happy that way.  Sometimes I wish I would have picked something catchy like Fantasy Times or Fantasy Reader, but in the end I think I’m really satisfied with my title.

There is one name that I kind of still wonder “what if.”  Books and the Country.  Personally I think it rocks, but I was going to name my blog The Unicorn Collector before Book Whispers plopped into my head.  Clearly my blog naming skills may need some work.

Weekly Overview:

It has all the grandeur of the finest UF, and all the hot edgy romance of some of the best PNR out there.

  • Some fun titles on Wednesday Wishes, I’m really excited by all the great series.
  • My first official Cover Coveting post!!  The New Covers portion of Author Gossip will be going live, so new covers will be posted ASAP!  There are tons of yummy covers to see on this first Cover Coveting.
  • Another Cover Coveting because the cover for Vanished by Sophie Jordan is out!  It looks so beautiful.

Hope you’ve all been having a great week!!  Now I’m off to the Hop

Book Whispers is a very good choice for your blog. I love the way Whispers rolls off the tongue and sort of echoes. I wish I could leave an audio of this message so you could hear what I mean. Something might be lost in the translation here. ;-)
