Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted every Friday at Crazy for Books. You have to answer a question every week. This week's question:

“What are you most looking forward to this season – A particular book release? Halloween? The leaves changing color? Cooler temperatures? A vacation? (If your next season is other than fall/autumn, tell us about it and what you are most looking forward to in your part of the world!)”


Where I am, there is no fall, and no nice autumn-ey weather. We have a lot of rains, wet roads and traffic jams. So, what I am looking forward to, is some quiet time at home with a constant supply of coffee and a couple of books!

Speaking of books - I am desperately looking forward to read 11/22/63, a science fiction novel by Stephen King, set to come out in November; a seemingly exciting story about a time traveller, who attempts to stop John Kennedy's assassination!!

Other books I want to read are a new legal thriller by John Grisham called The Litigators, which will also be out in the bookstores later this fall; and the much discussed novel 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami, which will be out in October.

And of course, Snuff, the 39th book in our beloved Discworld series by Terry Pratchett. It will be out in October. According to Wikipedia, Pratchett announced that Snuff is 'the next adult Discworld book' and will be 'based largely around Vimes'. Yay :)

I really need to get into the Pratchett books. My cousin in law loves them. I own the colour of magic but still haven't read it.

Its spring where I am so I am most looking forward to a holiday I have coming up and some warmer weather :-)

Those are wonderful books to wait for! The title of Stephen King's book looks quite interesting and so does that of Haruki Murakami's book. Happy Reading!

This week’s question is perfect for Labor Day weekend with the “official” end of summer and all.

I’m all about fall! I love all four seasons and I’m sorry to see summer go (I hope to get in a few more swims in my pool) but I’m also amped up for Autumn.

Why?

For most of the same reasons we all like autumn – fall foods, Halloween, the chill in the air, changing leaves and candy corn. But I’ve got a scary slant to why I’m angling for autumn. Hop on over to my book blog at http://www.howardsherman.net to read all about the murder, mayhem, seriously spooky stuff and even some BSP!

Happy Labor Day Weekend!

Where are you if there's only rain and no autumn??!!! You've got to have autumn! Although rainy days are perfect for curling up with a good book so you're definitely not missing out :)

Becky (Page Turners)- You really should read Discworld!! Specially when you own Colour of Magic, it is great!

The Book Gatherer - Good ol' India! I wish we had autumn too!!

Patricia - Well, I am reading Carrie right now and it is pretty scary! I don't see how King's science fiction can be scarier than his horror! He's one of my favourite authors anyway :)

Thanks for stopping by my blog! :)
