Book Blogger Hop!

Book Blogger Hop

It's Friday, which means it's Book Blogger Hop time! Every week, Jennifer at Crazy for Books hosts this event in which a question is asked and hundreds of book bloggers answer it. It's a great way to find new blogs to follow as well as some new followers for your own blog.

This week's question is: Summer is coming quickly--what 2011 summer release are you most looking forward to?

My answer: Today is apparently Deanna Raybourn day at Gabriel Reads. Not only am I reviewing one of her books, I'm also talking about her for today's 30 Day Book Challenge question. And now I'm dropping her name for the Hop.

My most anticipated summer release is The Dark Enquiry, Raybourn's latest installment in the Lady Julia Grey series.

It's going to be released in June, which means that I have until then to read the fourth book in the series, Dark Road to Darjeeling, because somehow I haven't gotten around to it yet. I'll be reading the entire series, including the newest book, in June as part of my Series of the Month feature that I'm debuting in May, so you can look forward to (or dread) that this summer.



  1. Hi-I just hopping by to say hello-I happily return all follows- The Reading Life. Mel u

  2. Hi, Mel. It's funny that you stopped by because I just stopped by your blog for the literary blog hop. I thought I'd followed you, but I guess not. I'll definitely do so. :)

    Thanks for stopping by.

  3. Hi, blog hopping and I hopped here. like your blog, new follower. that summer read i must add to my list.

  4. Thanks for the follow! I followed back. She's definitely a great writer. You should check her out. :)

  5. I just read one of her books - only got that one!! now to the others.

  6. Great answer! That's a really lovely cover, I love the colours. Happy Reading!

  7. Looks like a great book- good pick. I love your blog! I am now following you.

  8. You have mentioned these books so many time I think I am going to have to try them. Yet another author added to my list.

  9. Mystica: When I first read Silent in the Grave it was brand-spankin' new and I had to wait for ages for the next book to come out. I'm kind of jealous of people who are just finding these books now because they have three (soon to be four) others that they've never read yet just waiting for them. Hope you like the books.

    Vicky: New follower to your blog. Thanks for stopping by!

    Anne: Thanks for the follow! Glad to hear that you like the blog.

    Karen: I love that I'm now becoming one of those horrible bloggers that convinces people to add books to their TBR lists. I'm a bad influence and I'm proud of it. :)

    Hope you like the books!

  10. Karen, check out The Works for these books, I've seen them in the 3 for a fiver section on many occasions.

    Gabe, you should be getting commission! ;)

  11. Ellie: Or at least a finder's fee. :)

  12. So many people are efforlessly answering this question... it took me a while to come up with mine! Stop by if you get a chance- maybe even enter my giveaway!


  13. I have no books list...I am getting ideas from this question, though.

    Nice blog.

    Hopping by.

    I am finding so many books that I haven't heard of.

    Stop by my blog if you like to see my answer to this week's quesiton and to enter my giveaway of DANCE LESSONS.


  14. I haven't heard of the series. The truth of the matter is I don't really keep a list of release dates. But there are a few authors with new books coming out that I'm excited about. Come see who they are.

  15. Thank Elle, I'll look out for them the next time I'm in town.
