Blog Hop & Follow My Blog Friday – 3/11/11

Happy Friday everyone! The Follow My Book Blog Friday is hosted at Parajunkee's View and the Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Crazy for Books.  If you're a new follower, please leave a link to your blog in the comments so that I can visit your blog.
I also have a giveaway, a copy of The Iron King by Julie Kagawa. CLICK HERE to go to the post to enter the giveaway.
This week's question from Book Blogger Hop is: If I gave you $80 and sent you into a bookshop right now, what would be in your basket when you finally staggered to the register?
This is a tough question! I usually don’t buy books, I get most of what I read from the library. Occasionally, I read books that I love so much, I want to own them so I can read them again. Books that I have read but don’t own and would buy:
1. Nevermore by Kelly Creagh
2. Birthmarked by Caragh O’Brien
There are also new books that I have not read but I want. They are not out yet, but I could pre-order, right? J:
3. Supernaturally by Kiersten White
4. Divergent by Veronica Roth
5. Wolfsbane by Andrea Cremer
6. Vanish by Sophie Jordan
The question from Follow Your Blog Friday is: Who are you the girl instead of you the blogger?
I am a mom of two boys, one is four and the other is 16 months old (he is currently teething so it’s like I am living with a small, grumpy dictator who screams at me for a good part of the day). I am married to the best husband and father in the world and up until a few months ago I worked from home in public relations. I hope to do so again very soon. I love to read and travel and do as much of both as I can!

Swinging by on the Blog Hop! Hey, I read Paranormalcy (I think you mean this book anyway) and it was really good! I'm already looking forward to the next books in the series. Have a great weekend!

Music to a librarian's ears that you get most of your books from the library! :D Though I agree, it's nice to own those books that you love so much and can read over and over again. I can't wait for Supernaturally even though I need to read Paranormalcy first. Excellent list!

Happy hopping and reading!

Hi, just hopping on by! I got an ARC of Divergent for review and let me tell you, it was fantastic. Definitely a must-read of 2011! Also, I'm a new follower, so I look forward to reading your reviews :)

Wow! What a great question this week. I always peek at other people's book piles at the checkout link at B&N. That doesn't make me a voyeur, does it?

The exhibitionist in me has posted my own bookstore shopping list -- and it's not as predictable as you may think!

Hop on over to my blog for all the suspense and chills of my TBR list - http://www.howardsherman.net

Happy Hop Friday!

Hopping through. I love to travel too. I spent 10 days in Japan last year visiting a bunch of my husband's friends and sight-seeing, so I'm anxiously following all the quake news. Luckily his friends are all okay. Where do you most want to visit? I've never been to NYC and really want to go there. I'm going to Chicago in a few weeks and then South Carolina a few weeks after that.

Love your blog :) I'm following you! Great picks for your $80 list, by the way. Divergent was an amazing read. I've completely fallen in love. I've heard good things about Nevermore, too, and all the rest of the books. I'd love it if you would check my blog out, too. You can see my blog hop post over here if you're interested.
