Hippity do dah hoppity day

At last it is Friday. It has been a week and a half. I wasn’t going to participate in The Book Blogger Hop today, I thought it’s about time I took a week off, but I popped in to see the question and couldn’t quite resist bragging! So what is this week’s question?

“Highlight one book you have received this week (for review, from the library, purchased at the store, etc.) that you can’t wait to dig into!”

Earlier this week (just as I was writing my blog post on The Man Booker Prize nominees) I won a copy of one of the books Half Blood Blues- Esi Edugyan on Twitter, and today it arrived.

Half Blood Blues is the story of two band mates. 50 years after one band mate (a black German) is arrested after the 1940 fall of Paris his friend returns to Berlin and the story of the night comes to light.

This sounds like a bit of a different angle on a war story and I’m excited to get going with it.

  1. There is nothing as wonderful as winning a book on a blog! (Though it’s cool to win an Amazon card, too….)

    Here’s my Book Blogger Hop and Follow Friday for this week:
    BBH and FF: Bonjour! Enchanté! ¡Buenos días!
    And I hope you will stop in to throw your hat into the ring for my July Giveaway! Win a $25 Amazon gift card!


  2. I’ve seen a lot of interesting shirts on the different blogs. With the non-stop coverage of debt ceiling doomsday I’ve got to show you the t-shirt that describes me to a tee – at least this week! Follow me back to my blog and prepare to fall out of your chair laughing – http://www.howardsherman.net

    We’ve just gotta laugh, right? Life’s too short after all!

    Thank God it’s Follow Friday!

    That book sounds pretty good! Congrats on the wins!


  4. Sounds like an interesting book. I look forward to your review. I’ve posted a picture of an adorable baby pickle. It’s an illustration from the book I’m highlighting. Please come see what book I’m reading!

    Thank you…maybe I am getting good karma from my own giveaway 🙂

    It is awesome, thanks for stopping by.


  8. I love winning books! And I really like the picture on the top of your blog. I have two budgies, but they are a bit evil since the one never learned to sing pretty and so it screams at 6 AM EVERY morning. LOL I still love them 🙂

    I love winning books too, and I seem to have been very lucky in that respect recently. Maybe I should try playing the lottery


  10. Just hopping through. I’m a new follower from the Blog Hop.

  12. I’m seeing a lot of single answer responses with Twilight being by far the most popular choice. I really must analyze all the elements of that series that send girls ga-ga. Such studies are a part of the never-ending “code breaking” we males need to continuously execute to understand and relate with the fairer sex.

    I’ve cracked about 80% of the code. I will continue cracking the code until I reach 100% success. Then I’ll write a book for men and become a billionaire overnight.


    I’ve got four different series I can read over and over again. Three of them were written by deceased authors and three of them are fantasy adventures.

    Follow me back to my blog at http://www.howardsherman.net and find out how far off the beaten track I’ve gone with my favorite book series!

    Thank God it’s Follow Friday!

    I loved this week’s question! I’ve made so many friends in the book blog world and am really impressed with so many blogs it was hard to hunker down and make a choice.

    But I did it! I’m shining the spotlight on a Jersey girl! Hop on over to my blog at http://www.howardsherman.net to find out who she is and discover her amazing book blog.
