Book Blogger Hop

This is a meme from Crazy For Books. This weeks question is; 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!

Truth is I haven't been buying books. Been very good and trying to stick to getting through my tbr pile. However, the week this question (or prompt) comes up happens to be the week I decided that I should get a treat for months of good behavior. I actually bought some books.


I am looking forward to them all but the one I am looking forward to the most is Silent in the Grave by Deanna Raybourn. Yep, I know I don't like romance but it's got some crime in it and has the historical aspect. Plus Gabriel from Gabriel Reads highly recommended her books and it was then I added them to my tr list. It's the historical aspect that I am looking forward to more than anything. Read a few historical fiction this year and it's a genre I am growing to love.

  2. I'm a sucker for a good romance story and history but sadly enough, I have not read any historical fiction. Got any recommendations?

    Have a great weekend and happy blogger hop! :D

  3. I can't wait to see your review because this book does sound interesting but not necessarily what I normally read. :)

  5. I'm looking forward to this book. Maybe it will change my mind about romance, you never know.

    Jason I've not read that many historical fiction as it's relatively new to me. Since you like literary fiction though you might like Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantell. It won the Booker prize in 2009 and is a fantastic historical book. It's during the era of Henry VIII but from the point of view of Cromwell. I loved it. If you are looking for something lighter I read The Return of Captain John Emmett not that long ago. It's a mystery novel set in the 1920s. Very well written and well researched.

  6. 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.

    BUT I DIGRESS....

    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 http://www.howardsherman.net and find out how far off the beaten track I’ve gone with my favorite book series!

    Thank God it’s Follow Friday!
