Hops, Follows, and Tag Alongs, Oh My!

Don't forget to check out Week 4 of our Spring Celebration with interviews, reviews, reading recommendations, and one fantastic giveaway!

It's time for another Book Blogger Hop, courtesy of Crazy for Books!

Book Blogger Hop

"Summer is coming quickly - what 2011 summer release are you are most looking forward to?"

I have to admit, the HBO series has renewed my interest in George R.R. Martin, so I'd have to say A Dance with Dragons.

It's also time for the Friday Follow, courtesy of Parajunkee's View!

"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?"

Okay, end-of-the-world, space for 10 books, that means books with serious re-readability, but it also means I need some variety. As much as I'd love to take the entire Dark Tower saga or a few trilogies, I'd have to go with:

  1. Imagica by Clive Barker
  2. The Stand by Stephen King
  3. Silver: Humanotica 1 by Darcy Abriel
  4. Necroscope by Brian Lumley
  5. Good Omens by Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman
  6. Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton
  7. The Hunt for Red October by Tom Clancy
  8. The Ruins of Ambrai by Melanie Rawn
  9. Kushiel's Dart by Jacqueline Carey
  10. A Song for Arbonne by Guy Gavriel Kay
The 18 & Over Book Blogger Tag Along is courtesy of Bitten by Paranormal Romance!


"Do you have another hobby besides reading?"

Absolutely - I enjoy hiking through the woods and cycling along the pathways and trails that ride along the river.

As always, I urge you to hop around to some new blogs, tag along with some new friends, and find some great new reviews to follow. I always find something new to delight me!

  3. Hi & Happy Friday!

    I have posted my answer here,

    Have a wonderful weekend :)

  4. I think your blog title is quite cleaver! Hmmm. I'm not completely committed to my choices yet. I've been peeping at other people stockpile companions and it's making me think... a lot... about changing my choices. Except for the Fever series and The Hunger Games series. Those two are locked in tight.

    New follower to your site! Happy Follow Fridays!

  5. The Stand seems to be on every second person's list!

    Here's my Follow Friday.
