Hops, Follows, and Tag Alongs, Oh My!

The 18 & Over Book Blogger Follow is a weekly feature that begins on Fridays and runs through the weekend, hosted by Crystal from Reading Between the Wines and Kelly at Secrets of a Book Lover.

Q. What is your top three favorite romance reads so far for 2011?

A. Looking back over the past few months, my fave romantic reads have been Awaken Me Darkly (Gena Showalter), The Bonds of Love (J.M. Snyder), and Far Future Fembot: Bill's Story (D.B. Story).

It's time for another Book Blogger Hop, courtesy of Crazy for Books!

Q. What is the one ARC you would love to get your hands on right now?

A. I'm not even sure it's available yet, but I would do just about anything to get my hands on an ARC of The Wind Through the Keyhole, Stephen King's upcoming Dark Tower novel.

It's also time for the Friday Follow, courtesy of Parajunkee's View!

Q. Talk about the book that most changed or influenced your life (was it a book that turned you from an average to avid reader, did it help you deal with a particularly difficult situation, does it bring you comfort every time you read it)?

A. I can't think of a book that changed my life or anything like that, but it was Stephen King's Pet Semetary that saw me graduate from YA fiction right to adult.

As always, I urge you to hop around to some new blogs, tag along with some new friends, and find some great new reviews to follow. I always find something new to delight me!


  1. I still need to read a Stephen Kings novel. But they are so scary! ;)

    Hopping trough.

    Happy Friday.

  2. New follower :) I would die to get my hands on that ARC!

    Hippies, Beauty, and Books. Oh My!

  3. I'm still too scared to read Stephen King. I know I'm going to read it soon, but I'm not that great with scary things....I saw the movie Misery and it totally freaked me out! Maybe I'll get used to it! Great pick!

    Here's my FF!

  4. Happy Friday from Lydia @ Sensual Ride

  5. Far Future Fembot..I had seen that somewheres... *thoughtful* I'm a sucker for an erotic scifi.

    Hmmm.. and I think that it is as well which is probably how I had seen it. Great. Now it's gonna bug me til I find it. lol!

    Just hopping by, and wishing you a wonderful weekend, Sally!!


  6. Stephen King is a great author. I really want to read "Under the Dome" which I hear is absolutely amazing.

    I'm passing through and following. Please stop by my Follow Friday here.

  7. I didn't do the BBHop this week because I couldn't think of an ARC I really wanted, but Wind through the Keyhole is an amazing choice! I want that book NOW! Dark Tower is definitely on my list to re-read soon.

  8. Hopping through. I have never read Stephen King. I really should.

  9. I like JM Snyder's books. I haven't read one in a while. I should treat myself. :)

    One month and one day from today's hop, the book I'm highlighting comes out. Come see which book I'm talking about.

  10. Hi Sally dear! Thanks so much for joining in the 18+ follow! I am about to start Awaken me Darkly, so glad it made your list but then's Gena Showalter so not surprising!
