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 parajunkee.com, 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.

This week's question: Do you have any furry friends?


These are my fur babies: 

This is what it often looks like while I'm busy working. As you can tell, productivity is high. 


This is Lilly waiting for her boys to come home. She'll spend the entire day just like this if she's not sleeping next to me in my office. 

This is Roscoe. AKA The Boss. He runs the show around here. And yes, he has a sweater AND a coat for cold weather. 

Book Blitz: Visions by Lisa Amowitz

Vision by Lisa Amowitz Release Date: 09/09/14 Spencer Hill Press
Summary from Goodreads: The light is darker than you think…

High school student Bobby Pendell already has his hands full—he works almost every night to support his disabled-vet father and gifted little brother. Then he meets the beautiful new girl in town, who just happens to be his boss’s daughter. Bobby has rules about that kind of thing. Nothing matters more than keeping his job.

When Bobby starts to get blinding migraines that come with scary, violent hallucinations, his livelihood is on the line. Soon, he must face the stunning possibility that the visions of murder are actually real. With his world going dark, Bobby is set on the trail of the serial killer terrorizing his small town. With everyone else convinced he’s the prime suspect, Bobby realizes that he, or the girl he loves, might be killer's next victim.

Armchair BEA 2012 Introductions (day 1)

First, let me start off by saying that I am very excited to be participating in Armchair BEA this year. Since this is the first day of the weeklong event, here are my answers to the interview questions:

Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging?
Well, the answer the first part of that question, I am a middle school Language Arts teacher in Florida (and probably one of the only people in a coastal city that hates the beach). I’ve been married to my hubby for 10 years and have 2 boys. My house is a constant zoo and I’m turning 30 in a few months. There is a mid-life crisis in my near future, I’m sure, but I wouldn’t trade any of it for the world.
I started blogging in December of 2011 out of necessity. Seriously. My students know how easily I am distracted when they ask me about books (I eventually caught on to their tactics), so I started blogging out of a need for more teaching time. (I should go ahead and mention that I never talked books all day—even…
