Book Blog Hop and Follow Friday (April 28th)

It’s been another hectic week. And for no apparent reason. Nothing catastrophic happened. Just me making myself insane with the panic and the procrastination. Also when one date gets messed up on the calendar so does all that follow.

On some good news…at least for me…I went on a book buying spree. A crazy one. An insane one. I bought 97 books in one go. I have officially lost my mind.

Cupcake of the week: Cherry Vanilla with a Cherry Vanilla Buttercream

Reviews posted this week:
  1. Wickham’s Diary by Amanda Grange
  2. Husband and Wife by Leah Stewart
  3. The Confession of Katherine Howard by Suzanna Dunn
  4. Daughter of Fortune by Isabel Allende
  5. The Queen of New Beginnings by Erica James
This week's question is:
Q. Keeping with the dystopian and apocalypse theme that seems to be running rampant on, I have one very hard question for you: If you were stocking your bomb shelter, what books would you HAVE to include if you only had space for ten?
Really, only ten? I’m not even sure I can accomplish that without a mini anxiety attack. Let me think…hmmm
  • Anne of Green Gables Series 1-6, 8
  • Pride and Prejudice
  • Persuasion
  • And a nice meaty romance—Whitney, My Love by Judith McNaught

This week's question is:
Q. "Summer is coming quickly - what 2011 summer release are you are most looking forward to?"

There are so many.  Not so many as I would have thought but still enough to make this girl happy. These are the main ones and they are just the YA (and Sookie) ones because I can't keep up with the romance releases.

Forever (Wolves of Mercy Falls, Book 3) Passion (Fallen)Wolfsbane (Nightshade, Book 2)Dead Reckoning (Sookie Stackhouse, Book 11)


  1. Hi I'm an old follower popping by! The Anne of Green Gables Series is a great one that I didn't even think of! And can I just say - 97 books in one shot? Impressive! Have a great weekend.

    If there were an Olympics of bargain book buying, I think I'd take the gold. The whole process took me under half an hour.

    Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Hi, Grace! Thanks for the visit and follow. I'm now following you back. Wow! 97 books! That sounds completely amazing. I hope you have a great Friday. :)
