Book reviews, musings and waffle from a British lit addict

Book Blogger Hop: 16 – 19 July

Book Blogger Hop

I did the Book Blogger Hop a couple of weeks ago and really enjoyed it, so I’m joining in again this time! The question this weekend is:

Right this instant what book are you dying to get your hands on (past/present/future)?

I have two books/series that I really want:

  • Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore – the follow up to ‘Graceling’ and ‘Fire’ – I loved Graceling and Fire arrived from Amazon this week and I can’t wait to get started. The third offering isn’t released until 2012 (in the UK) so I have a long wait ahead of me!
  • The Parasol Protecterate series by Gail Carriger – I’ve read some good reviews of it on some great US blogs but it isn’t released in the UK until September. The series is vampire fiction set in Victorian England – sounds like an awesome combination and I can’t wait!

I have recently bought more books than is sensible so my wish list is yet to be built up again – what’s on yours?



  • ! am hopping in for the blog hop. I'm a new follower, too!

    I want to read the Carriger books, too! Everyone seems to like them.

    If you have time, drop in and say hi at Manga Maniac Cafe

  • Hello! I really like your blog. Carriger's books are great, I can't wait for Blameless! I plan to check out Graceling one of these days. Hope you'll visit my blog at http://thebookstop.wordpress.com.

  • Hi, found you through the hop. I really want to start reading the Gail Carriger books. Looks like a trip to the bookstore is in order!

    Have a great weekend, Bonnie
