Book Blogger Hop: January 28th-31st & Follow Friday (2)

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 Aliyah who blogs at Des Absurdités:
 "What book are you most looking forward to seeing published in 2011?  Why are you anticipating that book?"
My Answer: This is so hard, there are so many fantastic books coming out this year, but if I have to pick just one, i think i would go for 'Forever' by Maggie Stiefvater, i absolutely loved Shiver and Linger and can't wait to read more.
And isn't the cover pretty!!

 From Amazon:
  In SHIVER, Grace and Sam found each other. In LINGER, they foughtto be together. Now, in FOREVER, the stakes are even higher than before. Wolves are being hunted. Lives are being threatened. And love is harder and harder to hold on to as death comes closing in
What are you looking forward to?
The Hop lasts Friday-Monday every week, so if you don't have time to Hop today, go back later and join the fun!  This is a weekly event!  And stop back throughout the weekend to see all the new blogs that are added

If you've stopped by my blog from the hop, welcome, it's great to have you here, please feel free to look around, and follow. I will then visit you in turn. :D

This week's question comes from Marie of Mission to Read

What is/was your favorite subject in school?

I really enjoyed school, most of the time anyway. My favourite subjects were English, P.E & Drama, if I had to pick one of these I would say Drama, i still love acting, but don't get to do it anymore. I would love to find a local Drama group I could join and get back into it. I just loved the chance to be someone else and do something different and bring enjoyment to others too.

What's your favourite?


I also need to ask all you wonderful Bloggers for some help. I have entered a competition on Facebook on 'Creative Writing Now' Page, However i need people to 'like' my entry. The entry with the most 'likes' by 11th Feb wins a prize. If you are on Facebook please go to this link and press like. Thank you all very much :D

I used to love English too! I'm picking it back up again next year, thankfully :)

I have yet to read Linger, but I bought it this week. I can't wait to get started, as I liked Shiver.

I'm looking forward to Forever, too. I loved the first two books.

I loved Theatre classes, because you could be so creative, and you've really got to work together as a team.

I put together a list of books I'm looking forward to about a week ago.
