It's Baaaaaaack!

Once upon a time, the Book Blogger Hop was a huge, really popular weekly event here in the book blogosphere.  I had tons of fun with it, especially because it introduced me to awesome new blogs to read as well as keeping me up-to-date on some of my old favorites.  Then, for various reasons, it kind of lost steam. I forgot about it, you forgot about it, it was kind of forgotten (although never abandoned by its intrepid host, Crazy For Books).  Well, guess what?  The Book Blogger Hop is back!  It's gotten a teensy facelift as well as a new host.  I'm excited to see how this new-old Hop goes.

As for the weekly question, it is this:  What upcoming 2013 book are you most looking forward to reading?

- Well, there are tons, of course, but the one that comes to mind most readily is Orleans by Sherri L. Smith.  It's a dystopian YA by an author who usually sticks with historical YA (Flygirl) or contemporary YA (Lucy the Giant).  So, I'm interested to see how she does in this new genre.

I've actually had the ARC for awhile, but I'm holding off reading it until we get closer to the book's publication date in March.  It's been a tough wait, though!

How about the rest of you?  What 2013 releases are you most excited about?

For those of you who are new to BBB, welcome!  I hope you'll take a look around, leave a comment (or two or three or ten) and, most of all, come back often.  For you old reliables, thank you!  Your enthusiasm and devotion makes writing this blog so very worth it.

Happy Reading!    


  1. I like your comment to the left where you talk about your "mountain of books." I sympathize! I'm stopping in, BTW, from Coffee Addicted's Blog Hop. Hope you'll swing by one of my blogs and follow!

  2. Interesting reads! Thanks for joining the hop.

  3. Hope you get to read your chosen books.

    Happy Hopping!!

  4. That will be interesting to see how this author does with dystopian. Since I haven't read any of her books, I would know any different, lol.

    By the way, thanks for alerting me that the BBH is back! :D

  5. My blogging time didn't happen today due to a grumpy and possibly getting sick I don't have a post BUT my most anticipated 2013 read is Cassandra Clare's "Clockwork Princess." I also *almost* dread it, if that makes sense, because I love all the characters, but love triangles simply can't end well for everybody, now can they? Someone is going to get his or her heart broken. It will probably be me. Hope to have a BBB post for next time!

  6. BBH not BBB...I have no strong feelings about the Better Business Bureau one way or another :)

  7. There is nothing quite like reading the new book of n author your already love.

  8. Fun, fun! I'll have to participate in this some day. How have I not heard of this author? Sigh!

  9. Second person that has talked about Orleans. I guess its a Must read.


Comments make me feel special, so go crazy! Just keep it clean and civil. Feel free to speak your mind (I always do), but be aware that I will delete any offensive comments.

P.S.: Don't panic if your comment doesn't show up right away. I have to approve each one before it posts to prevent spam. It's annoying, but it works!
