Book Blogger Hop/FF/Update

Another weekend, another hop post! Nothing huge happened this week, but I did find out that I have a tentative pitch meeting scheduled for early March! (For those who don't know via my various award posts, I'm working on trying to pitch a reality show with a fellow producer and up until now pitch meetings have always been something that will come *eventually*...) Fingers crossed everything comes together in my favor this next few months!!!

Anyway, as for what's been going on here this week...

Fantasy Cast: The Grey King
S.O.S Book of the Week
Review: Across the Universe by Beth Revis

And next week, don't forget to stop by and 'meet' author Richard Denning. I'll be posting a review, interview, and fantasy cast for his novel!

Onward to the hops!

The Question of the Week is:
What is/was your favorite subject in school?

My Answer: My favorite subjects in school were writing, reading, art, and extra curriculars (if those count!). If I had to choose just one, I guess I'd have to go with art in grammer school. I loved making new things every week!

And in high school? My extra curricular school activity-- Auroris Dance Company. Seriously, those four years of being part of Auroris got me through high school! (I pretty much disliked the whole high school experience, apart from dances and special events! Overall, it just seemed like four years of putting job training on hold to learn science and math-- ick) If we're being strict about classes, then I guess band or acting classes would win out.  But, I preferred Auroris over both of those options on a typical day!

College brought with it a load of classes I loved.  My favorite being 'Writing for Television'.  It was during that class that I discovered how much I enjoyed the process (and I wasn't actually all that bad at it, either)!

The Question of the Week is:
What book are you most looking forward to seeing published in 2011? Why are you anticipating that book?

My Answer: There are so many books I'm looking forward to this year!!!  I'm very much looking forward to Demon Glass (sequel to Hex Hall), Prized (sequel to Birthmarked), and Wolfsbane (sequel to Nightshade)!  Oh, and Passion (sequel to Fallen and Torment)!

Thanks for stopping by my blog this week! See you again soon!!

I'm really looking forward to Demonglass

I put together a list of books I'm looking forward to about a week ago. The only reason I didn't include Demonglass is that I didn't list any sequels in this list.

2011 is going to be a great year for books. So many tasty things being published this year!

Oooh lots of sequels! I haven't read Hex Hall yet so I can't say I'm looking forward to the next one. :) As for the others, I'll have to wait for reviews before I decide to keep on with the series. :/
