Book Blogger Hop: March 11th-14th & Follow Friday (8)

Book Blogger Hop
Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Crazy-for-Books and is an awesome way to for book bloggers to interact and find each other. Such a wonderful idea! There's a new question every week that all the participating blogs have to answer.

This week's question comes from Ellie who blogs at Musings of a Bookshop Girl:

"If I gave you £50 (or $80) and sent you into a bookshop right now, what would be in your basket when you finally staggered to the till?"

My Answer: Ooh, this is a great question, I would have:
'Immortals: Night Star' by Alyson Noel, 
'Angel' by James Patterson
'Furnace: Execution' by Alexander Gordon Smith
'Hex Hall' book 1 and 2 by Rachel Hawkins
'Outside In' by Maria V Snyder
And anything else that took my fancy if I had enough left.



Follow Friday

This week's question comes from Ashley of Bookaholic Does Blogging
 

Who are You the Boy/Girl, instead of You the Blogger?

  My answer: another great question. I am a 22 year old living in Bedfordshire England, I still live at home with my parents and older brother. Family is very important to me and I love being around them. I am a Library Assistant and I love my job, the people I work with are like a second family to me. When I'm not at work I like to keep busy, I am quite sporty and do something every week night (Zumba on Mondays, Trampolining Tuesdays & Thursdays, JuJitsu on Wednesdays and Diving on Fridays.) I like to come home and relax on my laptop, checking in on Facebook (I am fighting a Restaurant City & FarmVille addiction) and of course I keep up with my blogging. 

I am one of those people who still doesn't really know what I want to do with my life, but am happy to go with the flow for the moment. I have finished writing my first novel and am in the process of trying to get it published and am now working on a second one. I think I would quite like to be an author but know it isn't easy.

If i was to sum me up in one sentence I would say I am a hyper active, positive, friendly person, who takes life as it comes and makes the best out of situations.

  I look forward to reading some of the other answers to these questions from my fellow bloggers.

 

Happy Hopping!!!

It's funny your list seems to have a lot of next in a seres books. This is the first thing I think of when I visit a bookstore. What's the next book in this or that series.

Here's mine:

Wow! What a great question this week. I always peek at other people's book piles at the checkout link at B&N. That doesn't make me a voyeur, does it?

The exhibitionist in me has posted my own bookstore shopping list -- and it's not as predictable as you may think!

Hop on over to my blog for all the suspense and chills of my TBR list - http://www.howardsherman.net

Happy Hop Friday!

Hopping through. I love England and have been there several times. I should go to a library next time I go. I'm curious if it's just like an American library.
