Book Blogger Hop


Hello everyone, and welcome! The Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jennifer of Crazy for Books. Since I didn't have a chance to participate in the hop last week, I'll be answering the questions for last week and this week.

Last week's question: Tell us about some of your favorite authors and why they are your favorites!

Oh, this is tough, as I have lots of favorites! Definitely Roald Dahl, because I think he's hilarious, and I always love his characters. I also love Jane Austen, because her writing is witty, her main characters endearing, and her romances lovely. I also love J.K. Rowling and Tamora Pierce because of the magical worlds they create in their books. They're also authors which I associate with my early teenage years, and I always have happy memories about the fist time I read by novels about them and was swept away.

This week's question: What book are you dying to get your hands on, past, present or future?

Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins! I want to know what happens! It's the final book in The Hunger Games trilogy and Catching Fire ended on a cliffhanger. The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa, which is the second book of The Iron Fey trilogy. I would also have to say Nightshade by Andrea Cremer because I've heard it's amazing, and I know I'll be getting it on an ARC tour some time in the next month.

If you're stopping by my blog for the first time, right now I'm holding a giveaway in celebration of getting 100 followers. Click here to find out more info! Note that you must be a follower to enter. I'll also be holding a 48 hour giveaway next Thursday and Friday as part of the Got Books? event, so if you like giveaways, be sure to stop by then as well.

  10. I can't wait for The Iron Daughther too! The Irong King was really good and left it at quite a cliff hanger. I have been meaning to check out the novella Winter's Passage and just got around to saving it, now I gotta find to read it lol.

    Have a great weekend!
