Book Blogger Hop (12) + Follow Friday

It's finally the weekend, which means time for another hop! Hosted by the lovely Crazy-For-Books.

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 week's question:

Highlight one book you received this week (for review, from the library, from the store, etc.) that you can't wait to dig into!

Yesterday I made what was probably my last trip to Border's *sniffle* and bought Anna Godbersen's Bright Young Things. I have been waiting to get my hands on this book forever! I was a huge fan of her Luxe series, and now with a whole new group of girls set in the 1920's, I couldn't pass it up!

Here's the synopsis:

The year is 1929. New York is ruled by the bright young things: flappers and socialites seeking thrills in the dizzying last summer of the Jazz Age.

Across the cast lawns of Long Island and in the glittering metropolis of New York City, three beautiful girls find love, intrigue, and adventure: Astrid Donal is a flapper who seems to have it all... but her perfect veneer hides a score of secrets. Cordelia Grey searches for the father she's never known--and discovers his world is more dangerous then she ever imagined. All Letty Larkspur wants to see is her name in lights, but just how far will she go to be a star?




Q: Let's step away from books for a second and get personal. What t-shirt slogan best describes you?

I think the most appropriate t-shirt logo for me would be "Will Read for Food." Simple, easy to remember.

-To join the fun and make new book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:

-Grab the button up there and place it in a post, this post is for people to find a place to say hi in your comments
-Follow Follow Follow as many as you can, as many as you want, or just follow a few. The whole point is to make new friends and find new blogs. Also, don't just follow, comment and say hi. Another blogger might not know you are a new follower if you don't say "HI"
-If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the Love...and the followers

New follower here. I see your sniffle and through in a sob. All though I didn't like my local Borders as much as other book stores, It is a sad day to see a book store closing. Farewell Borders!

Hippies, Beauty, and Books. Oh My!
