Book Blogger Hop

This week's question
“Highlight one book you have received this week (for review, from the library, purchased at the store, etc.) that you can’t wait to dig into!”

Alright, I have to admit that I'm kind of nervous to answer this one. But here goes nothing.

Yes. The Hunger Games. Now, before anyone tries to cyber punch me in the face, I can explain! Just let me plead my case. I have kind of been out of my regular reading scene for quite awhile due to a few different circumstances.
1. Had a baby. (goodbye, marathon reading sessions and staying current on amazing books)
2. Had another baby.
3. Had one more itsy bitsy baby.

Now, that doesn't mean I haven't been able to read at all. But my free time for reading has shrunken significantly. Also, I've been reading a ten book series that has taken me longer than normal to finish since I can normally only read in the evenings. I have since completed the last book, and I'm moving on!

As for The Hunger Games, I'm borrowing the series from my wonderful sister and I'm dying to read it. I have quite a few books lined up to review and I like to read them in the order they were received. Therefore, I can't get to it quite yet. Yes, I totally realize that I'm un-fashionably late to this party, but I promise I'm not only reading them because they are being made into a movie.

Please forgive me,
Jackie :-)

It's okay. I only just read the first book earlier this year. :)

I've posted a picture of an adorable baby pickle. It's an illustration from the book I'm highlighting. Please come see what book I'm reading!

I'll forgive you as long as you get to it! And you'll have to tell me if you're Team Gale or Team Peeta! Woo hoo!!

I’m seeing a lot of single answer responses with Twilight being by far the most popular choice. I really must analyze all the elements of that series that send girls ga-ga. Such studies are a part of the never-ending "code breaking” we males need to continuously execute to understand and relate with the fairer sex.

I’ve cracked about 80% of the code. I will continue cracking the code until I reach 100% success. Then I’ll write a book for men and become a billionaire overnight.


I’ve got four different series I can read over and over again. Three of them were written by deceased authors and three of them are fantasy adventures.

Follow me back to my blog at and find out how far off the beaten track I’ve gone with my favorite book series!

Thank God it’s Follow Friday!
