Book Blogger Hop and Follow Friday

Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Crazy for Books!

This week's question: "Highlight one book that you have received this week (for review, from the library, purchased at the store, etc.) that you can't wait to get into!"

I don't have it in hand yet, but I have Witches of East End, a new series by Melissa de la Cruz, on hold at the library!  I'm going to pick it up today, and I can't wait to read it.  The cover is really beautiful, and I've really enjoyed the Blue Bloods series so far.

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read.

Question: What t-shirt slogan best describes you?

Sometimes I tell random people bits of science info
that I find applicable to the situation.
I also find that people believe me when I give medical advice...

If you are visiting, please leave a comment so I can return the visit!! 

You can also check out my two latest reviews:  The Cordovan Vault (YA adventure) and I Am Number Four (YA sci-fi).


  1. Hi, there! Hopping by. I can't wait to get my hands on Witches of East End. I love your Meg Cabot week, by the way. Adding some books to my TBR pile now!

  2. I used to say "I'm a scientist, not a housewife" but now I'm more like a housewife. I love science facts!

  3. Great pick. Good luck w/ your first year teaching...I'm a new follower.

  4. Nice shirt! That's so funny you tell random science facts. I guess the shirt is a perfect fit! Here's my FF if you want to check it out!

  9. I’ve seen a lot of interesting shirts on the different blogs. With the non-stop coverage of debt ceiling doomsday I’ve got to show you the t-shirt that describes me to a tee – at least this week! Follow me back to my blog and prepare to fall out of your chair laughing –

    We’ve just gotta laugh, right? Life’s too short after all!

    Thank God it’s Follow Friday!

  11. Nice! I wonder if those shirts come with a phrase more like, "Trust me, I'm an English major." It would be fun to wear around the department. LOL Love your blog title, by the way. I'm a redhead, as well.

  15. Just hopping through. I'm a new follower from the Blog Hop.

  16. 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.


    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 and find out how far off the beaten track I’ve gone with my favorite book series!

    Thank God it’s Follow Friday!

  17. I loved this week’s question! I’ve made so many friends in the book blog world and am really impressed with so many blogs it was hard to hunker down and make a choice.

    But I did it! I’m shining the spotlight on a Jersey girl! Hop on over to my blog at to find out who she is and discover her amazing book blog.
