Doin' the Hop!

I really missed doing the Hop last week, so I wanted to make sure to participate this week. If you've never done the Hop, click on over to Crazy For Books and sign up. It's a lot of fun!

This week's question is: What book are you most looking forward to seeing published in 2011? Why are you anticipating that book?

- There are sooo many good ones coming out this year, it's really hard to pick, so I'll just name a few - Desires of the Dead by Kimberly Derting (because I loved The Bodyfinder and can't wait to see what happens next), City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare (because I adore this series), three new books in the Virgin River series by Robyn Carr, Plague by Michael Grant (again, I just love the series) and Possession by Elana Johnson (I met her last year and am excited about the premise of her debut novel).

How about you? Which books are you looking forward to?

Happy Hopping!


  1. City of Fallen Angels! Yes! :)

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Looking forward to sharing some great books with you!

    Have a lovely weekend :)

  3. Hey! I'm your newest follower. The book I'm most looking forward to is the sequel to Philip Reeve's Fever Crumb published by Scholastic. If you're a fan of Hunger Games or Maze Runner, then check that one out!

    When you get the chance, please visit and consider following me at one of my blogs:

  4. Hey Susan, I'm really looking forward to Kimberly Derting's new book too. I really liked THE BODY FINDER. I'm finally participating in the Hop again after a really long time away. I always enjoy this.

  5. Thank you for dropping by on my blog. Have a great weekend!

  6. Thanks for stopping by my blog!
    Happy Friday :)

  7. I couldn't pick just one either - way too difficult!! I am looking forward to Possession as well - neat that you got to meet the author!

    A Tapestry of Words

  8. Thanks for stopping by The Window Seat Reader! I have to say that I'm not familiar with any of the titles that you're looking forward to, but I hope you love them nonetheless. :)

  9. Hi, thanks for hopping on by my blog. have a great weekend.

  10. The titles of the books you chose are fascinating and a little scary - bodyfinder, possession, etc. Very dark and deep. I sometimes love fantasy too. My book for this Blog Hop is a mystery set in Paris.

  11. Hi Susan, funnily enough, following on from your comment that you'd never heard of any of my faves for 2011, I haven't heard of any of yours either! Great to hear of new titles and new authors via the book hop. Bon Weekend! Tx

  12. Hoping on by to say hi! I loved The Body Finder also!

    Here is my review of Desires of the Dead if you want to check it out!

  13. I really need to read the Cassandra Clare series. I keep hearing so many good things. Have a great weekend!

  14. The book I’m most expecting in 2011 is by an author I crossed off my “Favorite author” list.

    He’s back on that list now.

    Who’s the author? Raymond Feist? What’s the book? A Kindgom Besieged.

    Hop on over to my website to read all about it –

    Get Inside a Story

  15. Just hopping by! Not too much longer before Desires of the Dead will be here!

    Reading Lark's Hop Post

  16. Someday I need to read a lot of those series so I can read the new books. It's amazing that for every series I get to, there's about ten or so I'm still missing out on.

    I love your blog, btw. I'll definitely be following you. :)

  17. Hi! I'm your newest follower! I'm really looking forward to City of Fallen Angels, too, even though I haven't finished reading the rest of the series, yet. I really need to get on that!!

  18. Great blog! I'm your newest follower! I had a hard time answering this weeks blog question. There are just to many books! If you get a chance, hop on over to my blog. I've got a great interview up right now with author Gareth Crocker. Hope to see you there The Crazy Bookworm

    Have a great weekend!

  19. Hi Susan! Thank you for stopping by the blog and for the follow, I'm now following you back.

    I am looking forward to all three new release of Robyn Carr's Virgin River series as well.

I'm grabbing your button and putting up on my site so I can visit you easily and hopefully, as I gain followers, draw some to your blog. Well, great to meet you and happy blogging : )

  21. Thanks for stopping by my blog :]

    I haven't read the Body Finder yet and I've read some great reviews, so I need to get on that!
    But CoFA, most definitely! And I haven't read the last book of Chaos Walking, but I agree, it's a great series!

  22. I just read City of Bones, and I LOVED IT! I want to buy the rest of the series and Clockwork Angel too :) Thanks for your comment in my blog :3
