Tgif #9: Follow Friday and Book Blogger Hop, Yay!


This week's featured blogger is Marla @
Starting the Next Chapter.


And 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?"

This is such a difficult question! There are soooooo many books that I would want to bring with me, but if I could only choose 10, I would bring the following:

1. The Vampire Chronicles ( Books 1-3) by Anne Rice - I read this series when I was 11, and since then, I have been totally obsessed with vamps. I also get to cheat a bit here because I have a single volume that includes the first three books in the series, so technically it's one book, speaking in physical terms. Hard times require creative thinking!
2. As I Lay Dying by William Faulkner - my all time favorite book and author! It's such an intense read and every time I read it, I find more interesting themes and imagery that I hadn't noticed before. 
3. The Norton Anthology of Short Fiction by Richard Bausch - The most amazing collection of American short stories! This book could keep me occupied for decades. 
4. Breaking Dawn (Twilight Series, Books 4) by Stephanie Meyer - although I absolutely love the entire series, this was my fav.
5 - 6. Shift & Alpha (Shifters Series, Books 5 & 6) by Rachel Vincent - again, love the entire series, but these are my favs. 
7 - 8. Iron Kissed & Bone Crossed (Mercy Thompson Series, Books 3 & 4) by Patricia Briggs - I know it sounds weird that I keep picking random books within a series, but I'll never forget what happened in any of the other books, so I might as well bring my favorites :)
9 -10. Friday Night Bites & Twice Bitten (Chicagoland Vampires Series, Books 2 & 3) by Chloe Neill - I would have brought all three in this series but I could only take 2 more books :( Oh well, these are more than enough to satisfy my Vampire craving. 




Book Blogger Hop
This week's Book Blogger Hop question is...
"Summer is coming quickly - what 2011 summer release are you are most looking forward to?"

I'm not sure exactly when summer begins, so I'll just go with the next upcoming release that I am just dying to read - Hard Bitten (Chicagoland Vampires #4) by Chloe Neill. I just can't wait to get my hands on a copy of this book! Her last book, Twice Bitten, left me craving more of those sexy vamps. Ahhhhh, May 3rd can't come soon enough!

Interesting selection - I still haven't thought of what I would take with me yet, may a big set of encyclopaedia's :)

Haha, that would keep you occupied for a very long time. I actually thought about bringing a few Psychology and History textbooks, but I decided to go with fiction instead. If I'm going to be trapped in a bomb shelter for God knows how long, I would like to be entertained.

Thanks for hopping by!

Very nice selection. I love the Chicagoland Vampires series. I completely forgot that the next book is coming out this summer.

I'm a new follower from the Hop.

I can't remember if I've got any Chicagoland Vampire books on my TBR or not...that's a bad state of affirs to be in, isn't it? I know I've thought about trying them though.

Definitely some very nice choices! :) I thought it was real hard to choose, and for each blog I basically remember something I forgot! Sigh. My list can be found here!
