Book Blogger Hop

In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love of the written word! This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books! It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs to read!

This weekend’s bookish question is -

 ”What book are you most looking forward to seeing published in 2011?  Why are you anticipating that book?”
 
For me, there are three books which are firmly on my bookish radar this year.
The Thirteen Secrets by Michelle Harrison – the final instalment in a children’s/YA trilogy filled with faeries but not the saccharine sort!
The Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown - not out here in the UK until August 2011, be still my beating heart, I have heard so many good things about this on US book blogs that I am positively salivating at the prospect…
and last but most definitely not least Gillespie and I by Jane Harris.  I have been eagerly awaiting a new book from this author since I devoured her debut novel The Observations in 2006.  Now to make my life complete, all I need is for Diane Setterfield to follow up her wonderful debut The Thirteenth Tale

  1. I’ve never heard of any of these authors, although the first sounds like something I might like. I’ve got tons of books I’m looking foward to, too many to list, really :)

    Glad to have found you via the Hop. Have a wonderful weekend!

    Hi Susan, thank you for visiting! The first one is by an English author and the second by a Scottish author so they might not be too well known…yet. Weird Sisters is just out in the US and I don’t think I’ll last until August so I’ll have to get a copy via EBay.

    The book I’m most expecting in 2011 is by an author I crossed off my “Favorite author” list.

    He’s back on that list now.

    Who’s the author? Raymond Feist? What’s the book? A Kindgom Besieged.
