Blog Hop and Follow Friday (13)

Book Blogger Hop

The Blog Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Crazy for Books. This week's question is: "Summer is coming quickly - what 2011 summer release are you are most looking forward to?"

I would say that the book I am most looking forward to this summer is Lost Voices by Sarah Porter. If you haven't read this book yet, check out my review here. I thought this story was phenomenal, and I am so glad to hear that it will be a series. I'm also pretty excited about the next book in Jillian Larkin's The Flappers series. (The review for that book is here.) It comes out later this summer as well. Who wouldn't love a book about Flappers set during the 1920s?

Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee's View and features a new book blogger each week. This week's question is: 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?

This is such a great question. How on earth can I narrow down my reading to just 10 books? Hmm... I guess my list would look like this:

1. Lord of the Flies by William Golding
2. Animal Farm by George Orwell
3. Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury
4-7. The Entire Alanna series by Tamora Pierce
8. The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery
9. Twisted by Laurie Halse Anderson
10. The Bible (I know this should really be ranked as #1)

It was really hard to think of a list with only 10 books. I had to think about books that have a special place in my heart, as well as re-readability. Some books I just can't read more than once, even if they were enjoyable. BUT some books have this awesome ability to be brand new every single time you read them. You just can't help but to get something fresh and profound from them. Of course, numbers 4-7 and number 9 are just fun to read.

Love the 1920s! I was just hopping through, but I think I may detour to learn more about The Flappers!
