Book Blogger Hop (9) & Follow My Book Blog (6)

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:

Tell us about the book you are currently reading?

I am currently reading 3 books, Virgin Territory by James Lecense, Fallout by Ellen Hopkins, & Manifest by Artist Arthur.
Virgin Territory
is not about what you think, it's actually about a boy who moved to Florida, lost any faith he might have had, and when the Virgin Mary appears in a tree at the golf course he works at, everything changes. Pretty good so far.
Fallout is the AMAZING finale in the Crank trilogy. It's written in prose & has followed the life of a sweet girl, turned druggie, turned mother and her continuing struggle to stay sober and take care of her child. I love Ellen Hopkins work, so I'm thrilled to have this one.
Manifest is a new paranormal series about Krystal's forays into conversing with the dead in her new town in Connecticut. I just started it, but it's tantalizing so far!

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 Linger, The Education of Bet & posted The Incredible Journey in my Nostalgic Friday feature. I was also fortunate enough to be included in the Linger blog tour, so I have an interview with Maggie Stiefvater & a giveaway! 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!! I've past 250!! That means there is guaranteed THREE books for THREE lucky followers. The winners will be allowed any choice of book under $20 from the Book Despository. If I get 275 (only need 12 more) it will become mystery ARCs & finished copies from my stash. Go to THIS FORM to enter. Good luck!
