Friday Blog Hops #2

The question this week over at Book Blogger Hop is: “What are you most looking forward to this fall/autumn season – A particular book release? Halloween? The leaves changing color? Cooler temperatures? A vacation? (If your next season is other than fall/autumn, tell us about it and what you are most looking forward to in your part of the world!)”


I absolutely love Halloween. It might possibly be my favorite holiday. There is always something to do and you get to dress up. This year I'm hoping to go as Cleopatra. If it's too hot to wear a wig though, I'm going to have to think of something else!


I think the book I'm most excited for this fall is The Pledge by Kimberly Derting. I love reading authors ideas of dystopian futures, and this one sounds dangerous and awesome. Plus, I really enjoyed The Body Finder by the same author.



Edit: OMG I can't believe I forgot the most important thing that happens in the fall. FOOTBALL! Yes, I do love NFL football (you can blame my husband for that). I never thought I could be so happy and so angry all in the span of a few hours. If you are a football fan post your fave team! No smack talk though ya'll!

  2. This week’s question is perfect for Labor Day weekend with the “official” end of summer and all.

    I’m all about fall! I love all four seasons and I’m sorry to see summer go (I hope to get in a few more swims in my pool) but I’m also amped up for Autumn.

    Why?

    For most of the same reasons we all like autumn – fall foods, Halloween, the chill in the air, changing leaves and candy corn. But I’ve got a scary slant to why I’m angling for autumn. Hop on over to my book blog at http://www.howardsherman.net to read all about the murder, mayhem, seriously spooky stuff and even some BSP!

    Happy Labor Day Weekend!

  4. Whoa! Ha ha, love your PS. And whoa, I was stunned to see the Jaguars on a bookish blog. I'm not that into football, but my family has the jaguars along with some other football teams like the Bulldogs engraved in my head. So I still root for some teams even though I don't watch much football.

    I'm dying to read The Pledge too, forgot to put that on my list.

  5. Just hopping through. Friday Post! New Follower.

    I live in Florida and I understand your love for the Jags and the fact it's always too hot to wear the really cool Halloween Costumes.
