[Book Blogger Hop] First Read of 2019


Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer, where you answer a question and join a "hop". The purpose is to help bloggers discover and get to know one another.

For this week's Book Blogger Hop question, Elizabeth @ Silver's Reviews asked:

What was your first book of the year?

My answer:
My first book of 2019 was Stranger Things: Worlds Turned Upside Down.

This book was such fun dive into the creation of the popular TV series! It was also wonderfully creative and so well put-together! I highly recommend picking up a copy if you are a fan of the show itself or how TV shows are made.

Thanks for reading!

    1. It wasn't! It was just the show. This is the companion to the show that talks about how the show was made :)

  8. Sounds fun. I always enjoy behind-the-scenes books. My husband hates to ruin 'the magic', but I love books and docus that show how effects were done etc.

    1. I love learning more as well! One of my favorite film companions is for Cabin In The Woods. I learned so much about the little nods to other films by reading that :)
