Friday Hops

This blogger hop was created by Jennifer at Crazy for Books.

Here are the rules:
1. Enter your book blog link in the Linky List below (be sure to include how long you've been blogging and what genres you review!). If you post about the Hop on your blog, please link directly to your Hop post (don't forget to answer this week's question - see below!).
2. Visit other blogs in the Linky List! Make new friends! Follow new book bloggers! Talk about books! Rave about authors! (Please do not leave your link and not visit other blogs - it's just not cool and not in the spirit of the Hop!)
3. Post about the Hop on your blog! Spread the word about the book party! The more the merrier!
4. In your blog post, answer the following question (new question each week!):

Highlight one book you have received this week (for review, from the library, purchased at the store, etc.) that you can’t wait to dig into!

MY ANSWER: That would have to be a tie between Black Night by Christina Henry and Eye of the Tempest by Nicole Peeler.

Madeline Black is an Agent of death, meaning she escorts the souls of people who have died to the afterlife. Of course, not everyone is happy to see her...

If obstinate dead people were all that Maddy had to worry about, life would be much easier. But the best-laid plans of Agents and fallen angels often go awry. Deaths are occurring contrary to the natural order, Maddy's being stalked by foes inside and outside of her family, and her two loves-her bodyguard, Gabriel, and her doughnut-loving gargoyle, Beezle-have disappeared. But because Maddy is Lucifer's granddaughter, things are expected of her, things like delicate diplomatic missions to other realms.



Nothing says "home" like being attacked by humans with very large guns, as Jane and Anyan discover when they arrive in Rockabill. These are professionals, brought into kill, and they bring Anyan down before either Jane or the barghest can react. Seeing Anyan fall awakens a terrible power within Jane, and she nearly destroys herself taking out their attackers.

Jane wakes, weeks later, to discover that she's not the only thing that's been stirring. Something underneath Rockabill is coming to life: something ancient, something powerful, and something that just might destroy the world.

Jane and her friends must act, striking out on a quest that only Jane can finish. For whatever lurks beneath the Old Sow must be stopped...and Jane's just the halfling for the job.

This week's question is: Let's step away from books for a second and get personal. What T-Shirt slogan best describes you?

MY ANSWER: OOh I love funny t-shirts! I have even had to design a few of my own because I could never find one with the perfect saying!

I have this one, although mine's a little different because I got it at Anderson's Bookshop in Naperville, IL when I went to a signing a few years ago!

I really think this one describes me best! When I saw it I squealed with joy since I had never seen one before, which you would've thought I would, but no. They were always eat, sleep, (something sport related). Boring!

And while these don't describe me in a sense, besides the one, I had to get them as well. I actually made the I <3 Vampires one. But that was before the Twilight craze and then I didn't want to wear it much anymore because of it! And my I <3 Vampires t-shirt doesn't look like this one, but still, it just says I <3 Vampires! So because I couldn't wear that one too much I bought this one (botttom) at Hot Topic and totally loved it since it reminded me of the video I have on my sidebar!


I also designed another one at school that they spray painted for me and I had it say Vampires Don't Sparkle! Loved that one too. Really doesn't describe me, along with these two others, but it describes one of my passions which in turn around is about me!!

  7. I like yours as well. THanks for coming by! I did design a shirt that never got made It was of a retro woman smiling snarkishly and saying, "Yes, I like books. Do you have a problem with that?" I realized today that I would rather read than have most conversations.

  14. Hoping through and following you!


    I love all of those shirts but I like the Twilighty ones the best. I have a love/hate thing with Twilight myself. I like it but I know it is basically a Twinkie in book form. Fun but not very good.


    Have a good weekend and stop by my blog sometime if you have the chance. I just posted a review for hush, hush and why I think it is better than Twilight along with the movie Buried and Just Go With It. My review for Tantalize will be up sometime before the end of the weekend!

  27. I've posted a picture of an adorable baby pickle. It's an illustration from the book I'm highlighting. Please come see what book I'm reading!

  28. I’m seeing a lot of single answer responses with Twilight being by far the most popular choice. I really must analyze all the elements of that series that send girls ga-ga. Such studies are a part of the never-ending "code breaking” we males need to continuously execute to understand and relate with the fairer sex.

    I’ve cracked about 80% of the code. I will continue cracking the code until I reach 100% success. Then I’ll write a book for men and become a billionaire overnight.

    BUT I DIGRESS....

    I’ve got four different series I can read over and over again. Three of them were written by deceased authors and three of them are fantasy adventures.

    Follow me back to my blog at http://www.howardsherman.net and find out how far off the beaten track I’ve gone with my favorite book series!

    Thank God it’s Follow Friday!
