This week's Questions is...

 "Summer is coming quickly - what 2011 summer release are you are most looking forward to?"


What is with the difficult questions this week? :) I can't possibly just pick one. How about Bite Clubs (Morganville Vampires #10), Siren's Storm by Lisa Papademetriou. Oh or Undercurrent by Tricia Rayburn, Misfit by Jon Skovron, Nightfall by Ellen Connor or Kindling the Moon by Jenn Bennett?


  I also participate in Follow Friday, so those of you who popped by from that, thank you - and thank you parajunkee for hosting it!   



This Week's Follow Friday Question is..

Keeping with the dystopian and apocalypse theme that seems to be running rampant on parajunkee.com, I have one very hard question for you: If you were stocking your bomb shelter, what books would you HAVE to include if you only had space for ten?

 

 Oh my goodness, what a question. I might have to cheat a bit here. I am going to pretend that there is actually a humongous omnibus of the Harry Potter books and count them as one :) Alright, so here it goes!

 

1. Harry Potter (my pretend omnibus edition)

2. Touched By An Alien - Gini Koch (my favorite so far!)

3. The Virgin Suicides - Jeffery Eugenides

4. The Princess Bride - William Goldman

5. Anna Dressed in Blood - Kendare Blake

6. City of Ghosts - Stacia Kane - my favorite of the three :)

7. The Summoning - Kelley Armstrong... oh but I think the Awakening is actually my favorite. I don't know. This is just too hard.

8. Delirium - Lauren Oliver

9. The Magic Crystal - L.T. Suzuki

10.  Anna and the French Kiss - Stephanie Perkins

Holy crap that is pretty hard! I know one book I will definitely keep with me is a bible. As far as others, I would want Simone Elkles to keep some love in the air. Also something funny to me laughing.

Happy Friday! Have a great weekend :)

Such a tough question! I like your sneaky use of the HP omnibus edition. I went for books that make me laugh, to help offset the depressing fact of being in a bomb shelter!
