Hopping & Following & Buying

Hello Everyone. It's Friday (or almost Friday) and that means it's time for another hop. If you don't know what the Hop is you should check out Jen @ Crazy-for-Books blog, she hosts it every Friday.
If you are over from the hop : Welcome! Hope you're having a great Friday and I'll be checking out your blogs soon!   

Now I wasn't going to buy any more books this week, especially since I'm not even halfway through my Summer at Hogwarts read-a-long, but I was at a thrift shop with some friends and they had a surprisingly full book section. Who can turn that down? I got four books and a video game guild for my brother all for $5.50.
Here's what I got-

I don't really know anything about any of these, but they all looked decent enough (ok, Running in Heels looks kinda trashy, but it's summer and that's fine). Have any of you read any of these? I'd love to know what I've gotten myself into :)

Lastly, I've just seen Follow My Book Blog Friday over at Parajunkee's blog and figured I'd give it a go as well.

Dropping by from the Hop. The Summer in Hogwarts sounds really cool. I usually reread the whole HP series ever summer but I'm going to wait till the fall this year because of the movie. New follower!

@Alison - You should check out some of my 'quizzes' They're kind of fun to think about even if you arn't reading along. I'm really excited for the Deathly Hallows movie(s) but one of the reasons i'm doing this over the summer is so I'm refreshed on what is going on without remembering every detail come November. I know if I read them right before I'd nitpick and hate the movie.

I would love to read The Swan Thieves! And no, I've not read any of the books in your list though they look very good. I hope to read all of Jane Austen's novels some time too. I love the movies based on her books!

And happy blog-hopping. :)

Hopping by. Didn't Kostova write The Historian. The name seems familiar to me! Happy Reading!

Hi, I'm here from the Hop. I'm a very big Harry Potter fan too. Your Summer at Hogwarts sounds really fun. By the way, PERSUASION is really good I think.

Hi! Just hopping by.

I have a book by Ana Maxed but haven't read it yet - although I think it is chick lit and the cover looks much better then the one you have so I don't think it is trashy.

Hope you stop by and visit me at

Happy Friday and happy reading!

Running in Heels looks trashy? What about the Zeus-and-Leda-esque cover of The Swan Thieves? Seriously, if you're going to talk about Greek-mythos trashy. :)
