Book Blogger Hop(20)

It's that wonderful time of the week again. It's Friday, so that means that's it time for the Book Blogger Hop which is hosted at Crazy-for-books. Just click here to find out what to do and how to enter.

For this week's question it's:
"Highlight the book you have received this week(for review, from the library, purchased at the store, etc) that you can't wait to dig into!"

I got quite a few books from the library this week just because I just kept finding more that I wanted to read. I have already read some of them, so the next one I can't wait to read is Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta.
Here's The synopsis:

"What do you want from me?" he asks. What I want from every person in my life, I want to tell him. More.
Abandoned by her mother on Jellicoe Road when she was eleven, Taylor Markham, now seventeen, is finally being confronted with her past. But as the reluctant leader of her boarding school dorm, there isn't a lot of time for introspection. And while Hannah, the closest adult Taylor has to family, has disappeared, Jonah Griggs is back in town, moody stares and all.
In this absorbing story by Melina Marchetta, nothing is as it seems and every clue leads to more questions as Taylor tries to work out the connection between her mother dumping her, Hannah finding her then and her sudden departure now, a mysterious stranger who once whispered something in her ear, a boy in her dreams, five kids who lived on Jellicoe Road eighteen years ago, and the maddening and magnetic Jonah Griggs, who knows her better than she thinks he does. If Taylor can put together the pieces of her past, she might just be able to change her future.

It sounds like it's going to be good, and I hope it is. I can't wait to finally get to reading it. 

Happy Hopping!

I’m seeing a lot of single answer responses with Twilight being by far the most popular choice. I really must analyze all the elements of that series that send girls ga-ga. Such studies are a part of the never-ending "code breaking” we males need to continuously execute to understand and relate with the fairer sex.

I’ve cracked about 80% of the code. I will continue cracking the code until I reach 100% success. Then I’ll write a book for men and become a billionaire overnight.


I’ve got four different series I can read over and over again. Three of them were written by deceased authors and three of them are fantasy adventures.

Follow me back to my blog at and find out how far off the beaten track I’ve gone with my favorite book series!

Thank God it’s Follow Friday!

I loved this week’s question! I’ve made so many friends in the book blog world and am really impressed with so many blogs it was hard to hunker down and make a choice.

But I did it! I’m shining the spotlight on a Jersey girl! Hop on over to my blog at to find out who she is and discover her amazing book blog.
