Friday Memes (23 July, '10)

It's Friday, which means more Blog Hopping and snippets of close reads! Happy Weekend!

Book Blogger Hop
This is hosted by Crazy Jennifer over at Crazy-for-Books. Thanks, CJ, for hosting another book hop!

Another week, another question! This week's question:

TELL US ABOUT THE BOOK YOU ARE CURRENTLY READING!

My answer: I'm actually switching around between 4 books right now:

~Spirit Bound by Richelle Mead: This is the fifth novel in the Vampire Academy series. Right now, Rose, her best friend Lissa, and another new guardian are trying to break their worst enemy out of jail. Don't worry, they want him locked up, but they need him for something even bigger.

~Summer Ball by Mike Lupica: I am just starting this book today, so all I can tell you is that it's about a boy who plays basketball with his travel team. He's short for his age. Fromt he front of the cover, I would think that Danny's -- that's his name -- is at a sumemr b-ball camp.

~Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer: This is the fourth and final book in the phenomenal Twilight Saga. I am at the reception party, right after the wedding :). I've read this before, but I'm rereading with some friends on Goodreads. It's going to be a great read all over again!

~Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen: This is one of the classics that I have always wanted to read, and now I am! I haven't really gotten far into it. I'm on chpt 2, but it's a little confusing. I will have to get back to you with how well it's going! :D.

And that's what I'm currently reading!

--------------------------------------------------------------------

The Friday 56Tonya from Storytime With Tonya and Friends hosts this fun meme. All you have to do to participate is:

*Grab the closest book.

*Turn to page 56. Find the 5th sentence.

*Post that sentence (plus one or two others if you like) along with these instructions on your blog -- or if you don't have your own blog -- in the comments section of the blog.

*Post a link along with your post back to Tonya's blog.

**Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest or most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.** This week's snippets are from Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer:

"It wasn't nearly as easy to dance with Charlie. He was no better at it than I was, so we moved safely from side to side in a tiny square information. Edward and Esmespun around us like Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers."

"It was good to see all my old friends, but I really wanted to be with Edward more than anything else."


Well that's all for me this week! Happy reading and blog hopping everyone! Another week will have come and gone before we know it! :D.

Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! I love reading what you have to say, whether good or bad. (This is not an open invitation to be rude.)

This blog is an award-free zone. I simply don't have the time to pass them on. Thanks for thinking of me, though :).
