Friday Memes (16 July, '10)

Hello all! These are a couple of weekly memes that I will be participating in. Enjoy!

Book Blogger Hop
Greetings and Salutations to everyone that hops by! This is the my first time joining the Book Hop. I created this blog for viewers like you and because I love blogging. I'm having a great time reading as much as possible to provide you with some great reviews. Welcome to my blog!

This is hosted by Crazy Jennifer over at Crazy-for-Books. Thanks CJ for hosting the book hop!

Every week, Crazy Jennifer asks a question, and, obviously, I am too elated about the BBH not to answer! This week's question:


My answer: I have a few books that I'm excited about getting.

1.) City of Ashes! Cassandra Clare has gotten me hooked with the Mortal Instruments debut, City of Bones, so I'm trying to race to the nearest store to get the sequel!

2.) Last Sacrifice! The Vampire Academy series finale (by Richelle Mead) is coming out Dec 7th, and I'm excited times 1,000! I'm currently reading the fifth book, Spirit Bound, but close to finishing!! :D

3.) Catching Fire! The Hunger Games 's sequel has been out for a year, but I'm too happy that I'll be getting it soon!


The Friday 56

Tonya from Storytime With Tonya and Friends hosts this fun meme, and all you have to do 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 do not 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 Paths of Darkness: Collector's Edition by R.A. Salvatore:

" 'Yes, of course,' Dondon replied, visibly trembling."
"A burning rage welled inside Entreri. He felt as if he would simply explode into a murderous fit that would have him physically shaving the pounds from Dondon's fat hide with his jeweled dagger. Instead, he went at the lock, turning it roughly to scan for any possible traps, then reaching for a small pick."

That's all for this week's memes. Check back next Friday for more!! :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 :).
