Hop & Follow Friday! (8)


"Follow My Book Blog Friday" is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee where you can join in the fun and meet lots of new bloggers!  Check out her blog to join in the fun!

This week's question from Marla at Starting the Next Chapter:

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?

Um...only 10?!  I believe that my husband and I are currently planning on building a library/cellar bomb shelter....but just for fun and to play along. :-) [And I'll not include my NookColor...although I would *obviously* take it.  Also, I'm sticking with books that I currently own...]
  1. Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold
  2. The Diplomat's Wife by Pam Jenoff
  3. The Secret History of the Pink Carnation by Lauren Willig
  4. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
  5. Walk with the Wind by John Lewis
  6. The Red Scarf by Kate Furnivall
  7. Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen
  8. Elizabeth by David Starkey
  9. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
  10. Archaeological Study Bible :-)
And out of curiosity I asked my husband what he would take (what? two people = 20 books, right?):
  1. Bible
  2. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
  3. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
  4. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows
  5. Medieval Europe: a Short History (Hollister)
  6. Edgar Allan Poe: the Complete Works
  7. Gilbert of Sempringham and the Gilbertine Order (Golding)
  8. The Hobbit
  9. Amber, Gold, & Black: The History of Britain's Great Beers
  10. Storm of Swords (Martin)

This week's question...

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


Hereafter by Tara Hudson
Release date: 7 June 2011

Drifting in the dark waters of a mysterious river, the only thing Amelia knows for sure is that she's dead. With no recollection of her past life—or her actual death—she's trapped alone in a nightmarish existence. All of this changes when she tries to rescue a boy, Joshua, from drowning in her river. As a ghost, she can do nothing but will him to live. Yet in an unforgettable moment of connection, she helps him survive.


Amelia and Joshua grow ever closer as they begin to uncover the strange circumstances of her death and the secrets of the dark river that held her captive for so long. But even while they struggle to keep their bond hidden from the living world, a frightening spirit named Eli is doing everything in his power to destroy their newfound happiness and drag Amelia back into the ghost world . . . forever.

Happy Friday! May your weekend be filled with books!

That’s was clever of you, getting your husband to pick some books too!
Reading in the Corner was one of the names we considered for our blog! You have good taste in names!
See you around,

New follower! I love that you have a husband who reads and that he got to pick. My boyfriend reads like 20 pages of a book per year. Sigh! He does listen at times though.

My list can be found here!

Awesome list! I love that you asked your husband! Do you think if I said my dog read I'd be allowed to slip ten more in? ;)
I've been meaning to read The Lovely Bones. Is it good? :)
