The Mission: Hop and Follow

Jan 27, 2011

  Book Blogger Hop
This week's question comes from Aliyah who blogs at Des Absurdités:

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

Answer:  Shadowfever was the book I had be dying to read. I read it and was over the moon. 
Then of course it would have to be Deadly Vows by Brenda Joyce, I have been waiting years for this book.  Brenda and fans have had to write and beg publisher for years to get this book out. 
Next would have to be Kiss of Snow by Nalini Singh, everyone wants this one.
I have been yearning to read it, it's Hawke's story and since the begining of the Psy series, when we met him, there has been a crush.
 
 





The Follow is always hosted by the creative and talented Parajunkee.
The feature this week is:

Marie of Mission to Read




The question this week is:
What is your favorite school subject?
My favorite subject had to be English and History.  I had the most incredible 8th grade History  teacher.  There was so much passion and love for history in his class.  He was the artist and we were the canvas. His retelling of history were the brush stokes. At the end of the year I was his completed “history hungry” master piece.  I don’t know of anyone that didn’t spend the entire hour in awe of him.  I think we only used the book for the visuals.  We relived history in the pictures his words painted.  English was the discovery of the classics and how we have evolved form the ancient greats.  Your words are your power. 
Thank God for words, and hence books.
History Channel rocks!!!

  11. Good answer! The answer on my book blog is a little embarassing; it’s a book that’s been sitting on my TBR pile for a year.

    To my shame, I only opened the book because I remember it contained an Amazon gift card.
