Book Blogger Hop and Follow Friday!

The hop is hosted by Crazy-for-Books. Check out Jennifer's blog to sign up and start hopping!  

This week's question is:

 "What book are you most looking forward to seeing published in 2011?  Why are you anticipating that book?"

Oh, wow, that is a crazy hard question!  I guess it would be a toss up between four books: This Side of the Grave by Jeaniene Frost, Where She Went by Gayle Forman and Wither by Lauren DeStefano and Wolfsbane by Andrea Cremer.  To be fair, I am only really familiar with the ones being released in the first six months, so I am sure there are some great titles coming later on, too!  I am looking forward to TSOTG because I simply cannot get enough of Cat and Bones (my first every blog post was about this series).  I CANNOT wait to see what happened to Mia and Adam in Where She Went (I am certain I will cry many, many times), and I love a good dystopian/issue book, so Wither is looking oh-so-fabulous to me!  If you haven't read Nightshade by Andrea Cremer, yet, I highly encourage you to - it will leave you chomping at the bit for Wolfsbane!  

How 'bout you?

Also, today is Follow Friday with Rachel's blog, Parajunkee's ViewThis week's question:

"What is/was your favorite subject in school?"

 I'm a bit certain that this is going to be the same for everyone, but my favorite subject was English.  I was just good at it.  I took it for granted sometimes, though.  In my freshman lit and composition course in high school, I sat in the back of the classroom to shamelessly flirt talk to this hottie I had a crush on - wound up getting a 'C' that year and missed my chance to get into honors.  Remedied that my sophomore year and would up getting the award for Honors American Lit my junior year (I was on a major mission to 'prove' myself - insecurity, anyone?).

P.S. - check out my interview with Megan McCafferty and giveaway for an ARC of Bumped in the post below if you haven't had the chance!  Have a great weekend!


  1. I'm really looking forward to Wither and Wolfsbane as well! I can't wait for them to be released. There are great books coming out this year, aren't there? I'm so excited!

  10. Wither and Wolfsbane! I am really looking forward to those too.

    I put together a list of books I'm looking forward to about a week ago.

    2011 is going to be a great year for books.

    So many people are saying English was their favorite subject...
    My favorite subject was Art, although I haven't done any art in such a long time. I'm left handed, and very right-brained.

  11. Great picks for books being published in 2011! I am really looking forward to a whole bunch as well!!!

    English is a great subject! I enjoyed it as well :). My favorite subject was photography :).

  12. BONES!!!! We're so close Linds, so close! Your other choices are fabulous as well, but Bones is Bones and I need more of him:) Have a great weekend!

  13. Old follower stopping by! Drop by if you get a chance!
