Here's to the Hop!

Cheers! The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly event for bloggers and readers, a wonderful opportunity to connect with other book lovers, make new friends and followers, and share an appreciation of books. I've discovered a lot of top-notch book blogs in this manner. Hosted by Jennifer from Crazy-for-Books, this Hop lasts from October 8 until October 11, so there's ample time to sign-up and enjoy the blogosphere's best BOOK PARTY. If you'd like me to visit your blog, please leave a comment.



It was a great surprise to discover that this week's question is from--me! Thank you, Jennifer! What's your favorite beverage while reading or blogging, if any? Is it tea, coffee, water, a glass of wine, or something else?

Over the summer, I was enjoying iced coffee, but now that it's cooler, I'm sipping an assortment of hot coffee and tea again. I also enjoy Trader Joe's spicy cider, and spicy Mayan hot chocolate; both are delicious treats on chilly evenings. And I should probably make an effort to drink more water! What about you?

Thanks for hopping by!

  1. Hi Suko! Congrats on getting the question this week! :) Also, I'm a new follower <3

    During the summer, I was more of an iced tea person, too! But now I'm back to regular old water (if I drink when I read or blog at all!) But if there's ONE thing I must have when writing reviews, it'd be a cold glass of Very Vanilla Soymilk. I have no idea why, but I can never write a review without it!

    Here's my hop this week. <3

  2. Welcome, Kristina! I add plain soy milk to my coffee; it makes it almost dessert like. Thanks for hopping by! I will hop to your place now.

  3. I can only drink coffee when it's like a candybar in a cup, so iced coffee is perfect for me. Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. I am also making an effort to drink more water, and find that I only really want to drink it if it in the bottle, not out of the tap. It's weird, but if I drink bottled water, I can keep it up all day, but if it's from the tap, I get bored with it and pretty much ignore it. I hope you have an awesome weekend!!

  7. I love a good cup of tea, especially when reading. During the day I drink orange pekoe with milk but at night I love the flavoured teas, especially vanilla rooibos. Just had a Coconut Cream tea yesterday...dreamy.

  10. Hi, found your blog through the Hop. I am a coffee girl, and when I'm blogging or otherwise writing is when I get a chance to really enjoy a proper coffee.

  28. We have a Trader Joe's in our backyard, so to speak, and I should try their spicy cider. Also, I love Mexican hot chocolate. But, if I had to state my favorite drink? It would be a cappuccino. Italian all the way, baby. ;)

  31. I'm not a tea drinker at all, but apparently, a lot of book bloggers are. Interesting! It's usually just an ice cold glass of water for me. I live in the hot, dry desert, so I guess that makes sense :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. I'm not a tea drinker either and really should drink more water as well!

  33. That is one great photo - Mayan hot choc sounds incredibly tasty..We don't do much hot chocolate here in bangalore, it is a very Southern coffee city. Maybe some hot chai with biscuits in the evening, for variety :)

    Hope you had a great weekend Susan.
