Book Blogger Hop (8) & Follow My Book Blog (5)

Hello again from the Book Blogger Hop & Follow My Book Blog hop! This is a weekly get-together so that we can showcase our blogs and discover new ones!

NEW part of the Book Blogger Hop ~ Crazy Question:

Right this instant, what book are you dying to get your hands on (past, present, or future)?

Past: I would love to get an original (like on parchment) copy of The Tempest by Shakespeare
Present: I'm squirming in resistance since there is a long waiting list, to read The Strange Case of Origami Yoda by Tom Angleberger
Future: It's a toss up between Not That Kind of Girl by Siobhan Vivian, Falling Under by Gwen Hayes, & Beautiful Darkness by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl.

I review mostly YA books with a definite slant towards paranormal/fantasy & realistic fiction. Historical fiction & prose work occasionally pique my interest as well. This week I reviewed No & Me, Guardian of the Dead & posted To Kill a Mockingbird in my Nostalgic Friday feature. Be sure to look around, follow if you like, check out my reading challenge or grab my button! Comments are a pleasure too, so fire away!!

I'm hosting a giveaway for my blogiversary on 7/30/2010. If I get 200 followers it will be 1 book, I've made 200!! I've made 225!! That means there is guaranteed TWO books for TWO lucky followers. The winners will be allowed any choice of book under $20 from the Book Despository. If I get 250 it will become 3 books and 3 winners, and so on (one extra book per 25, up to 3 books; if we keep going after that then it will become mystery ARCs). Go to THIS FORM to enter. Good luck!

Popping by via Parajunkee's hop.

I'm dying (possibly literally) to get my hands on City of Ghosts, the third book in Stacia Kane's Downside Ghosts series. It comes out on July 27th, so I should make it. After that, I'll return to counting down the days until Last Sacrifice is released (I actually have a countdown widget up on the blog).
