Follow Friday (5) & Blog Hop (4)

Follow My Book Blog Friday is hosted by Parajunkee's View. Anyone can participate. To join the fun and make now book blogger friends, just follow the rules up on Parajunkee's website!

This week's question is: Keeping with the dystopian and apocalyse theme that seems to be running rampant on parajunkee.com, I have one very hard question for you: If you were  stocking your bomb  shelter, what books would you HAVE to include if you only had space for ten?

This is a tough question! I have to think about this one for a while.....



Okay, I got it!
  •  The Underland Chronicles by Suzanne Collins (5)
  • The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins (3)
  • The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen
  • Lock and Key by Sarah Dessen
 If only we could bring 15 books with us, I'd bring The Christy Miller Collection with me! I just couldn't decide! Well, I just hope that I never have to choose only 10 books! Somehow I'd find a way to squeeze those books in with me. What are the ten books you would pick? You can tell me in the comment box, or leave the link to your webpage. This was a tough question, I'd love to read your answers!

Book Blog Hop is hosted by Crazy For Books. If you have a blog that does review books on it, you can participate! Check out her website for the other rules.

This week's HOP asks: Summer is coming quickly -- What 2011 Summer release are you most looking forward to this year?

  Well, I'm really looking forward to Sarah Dessen's new book, What Happened To Goodbye, but since that comes out in May and technically that isn't summer, I think I'm most looking forward to The Power Of Six by Pittacus Lore. I read I Am Number Four just days after it was released and it just blew me away! The movie didn't quite make my standards, but since Alex Petifer (excuse the spelling) played John, I thoroughly enjoyed the movie. (;

The Power Of Six
I've seen him in the news. Followed the stories about what happened in Ohio. John Smith, out there, on the run. To the world he's a mystery, but to me . . . he's one of us. Nine of us came here, but sometimes I wonder if time has changed us - if we all still believe in our mission. How can I know? There's six of us left. We're hiding, blending in, avoiding contact with one another . . . but our legacies are developing and soon we will be equipped to fight. Is John Number Four? And is his appearence the sign I've been waiting for? And what about Number Five and Six? Could one of them be the raven-haired girl with the stormy eyes from my dreams? The girl with powers beyond anything I could ever imagine? The one who may be strong enough to bring the six of us together?
They caught Number One in Malaysia.
Number Two in England.
And Number Three in Kenya.
They tried to catch Number Four in Ohio - and failed.
I am Numver Seven - one of six still alive.
And I am ready to fight.

Okay, this plot just sounds so amazing! I'm going to get the book the day it comes out and just devour it! And, bonus points for cover art! I just cannot wait for this book! Keep watch, August 23 it releases!
What book are you waiting for this summer?
