It has been a VERY long time since I’ve done one of these… I miss it!

Q: When you’ve read a book, what do you do with it? (Keep it, give it away, donate it, sell it, swap it..?)

 If I read a book I own, I tend to keep it.  If you look at the number of books I own I might look like a hoarder of books – which I guess I am.  I really hate lending out or swapping my books as I NEVER (and I do mean NEVER) get them back. Next to reading, one of my favorite things is to see how much my library has grown over time.  I have really put a lot of work in every book that sits on my shelf, as I do not have much money to begin with to spend on books, making each one special.  The only down side is when I move – moving all those books sucks!

This week’s Hop Twist:  
  “Tell us about one of your posts from this week and give us a link so we can read it (review or otherwise)!”
Unfortunately, I was only able to get one Book Review post up this week: Frostbite by Richelle MeadThis is the 2nd book in the Vampire Academy series.  While it is not as good as the first one, Vampire Academy, (I gave it 4 out of 5 stars) it was very exciting and intriguing.  The book follows Rose’s journey to becoming a Guardian for her best friend, Lisa.  My favorite thing about this book was that it really focused on relations, as my review talks more about.  There was a lot of character development in this one. 

While I know this says to talk about only ONE post… I have to comment an another post regarding the sad news of L.J. Smith being fired from Vampire Diaries.  I think this is important news regarding the Book World!

“What book are you most looking forward to seeing published in 2011?  Why are you anticipating that book?”
I’m definitely looking forward to Darkest Mercy because the series is just awesome! I’m also looking forward to Silence (Hush, Hush #3) and Passion (Fallen #3).  Again these series are just amazing and I can’t wait to read them!

This week’s Hop Twist:   
“What book influenced or changed your life? How did it influence/change you?”
This is an easy answer for me: Little Women by Louisa May Alcott.  My mother use to read it to me all the time growing up and it is now a book I read every year around the Holidays.  It has changed my life in many ways…. I was able to relate to each character in different ways, which is how I think most young women feel.  It made me appreciate family more and what is really important in life. Plus, it gives me one more thing to remember my mother by who has now passed.
 

This week’s Follow Friday Q&A:
What book(s) have you discovered lately from someone’s book blog?
There are a lot of books I have discovered from other book blogs….. for example, one of my favorite authors, Simone Elkeles.  I am sure I would have eventually found out about her and her books but not as quickly as I did.

What Is Your Favorite Book Cover?
This one is actually really hard.  There are so many amazing book covers out there. I love the covers of Stacia Kane’s Downside Ghosts series:

I haven’t done one of these in a while – been really busy and I hate doing it when I can’t get involved.  So I’m making my mission this week to do it!!
This week’s Hop Twist:   
How Many Blogs Do You Follow?
This one is actually a bit embarrassing…. I follow over 150+ Book Blogs on Blogger but and I follow over 200+ on Bloglines.com (of course those 150+ on Blogger are also on Bloglines.com – I don’t want to miss a thing).  I’m just giving you the Book Blogs… if I gave you all the other types of blogs that I keep an eye out on it would be too many – – of course though I make sure to check ALL my Book Blogs first before I check any of the other ones 🙂

The Hop Twist:  Who is your favorite new-to-you author so far this year?
It is a tie for my new-to-me favorite author this year.  I really couldn’t decide between the 2… 
Jennifer Echols and Simone Elkeles
Both of these authors’ writing is both raw and true.  The books of theirs that I have read so far, I went right through them, they were so good.
