Follow Friday/ Book Blogger Hop (3)

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkie, giving people a chance to make new friends in the book blogging community! 

This week's question is: 

Just like Ashley said (love it) "Ashley the girl..." who are You the Boy/Girl, instead of You the Blogger?

I'm Vicky. I just recently turned 18, and I'm currently on a hopeless course at college studying on Art and Design. I've got one more year, then I'm hoping to go to uni. I would like to be a Concept Artist or Illustrator or something involving film art. Other interests I have are WW2, Astronomy and films. I currently work as a nighttime cover cleaner at some offices nearby my house, and transcribe for an online podcast called MuggleCast. I also have two gorgeous cats named Oliver and Ali (that's Ali in the sidebar).  

Book Blogger Hop

The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly event hosted by Crazy-for-Books, it's a great way to meet new friends in the book blogging world!

This week's question is: 

"If I gave you £50 (or $80) and sent you into a bookshop right now, what would be in your basket when you finally staggered to the till?"

This is tough because the bookstore nearest me is pretty small and there aren't always a huge choice in books, although they are good with their latest releases. 

But here's what I came up with (I've linked them to their Shelfari pages if you're interested):

  1. City of Glass by Cassandra Clare
  2. Matched  by Allyson Condie
  3. The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting 
  4. Numbers: The Chaos  by Rachel Ward
  5. Revolver by Marcus Sedgwick
  6. The Dead by Charlie Higson

Also, if anyone out there is caught in the regions effected by the tsunami, please stay safe, my heart goes out to you! <3


  1. New follower via FF. Have a great weekend and feel free to visit when you get a chance.

  2. Wow! What a great question this week. I always peek at other people's book piles at the checkout link at B&N. That doesn't make me a voyeur, does it?

    The exhibitionist in me has posted my own bookstore shopping list -- and it's not as predictable as you may think!

    Hop on over to my blog for all the suspense and chills of my TBR list -

    Happy Hop Friday!

  3. Great selection. I've read a few. Love City of Glass.

    Happy Hop

  4. Hopping through. I love MuggleCast! What do you think of being a transcriber.

  5. Oh, I love being a transcriber, it's great knowing that I'm doing something for my favorite podcast! :D

  6. Will have to check out your list...this week's question is GREAT....more books to add to stack. :)

    Stop by my blog if you like to see my answer.

  7. I bought Revolver for my library but haven't read it yet. It looks good though. If you ever read it, I'd like to know what you think!

  8. Yay! Another artist! Nice to meet you. :-) Being an illustrator would be fun. I'd never heard of MuggleCast. I'll have to check it out.
    Thank you for stopping by!

  9. Very nice choices! I want to read Matched too :) The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare is one of a kind. I loveee it :) (Can't wait for the movie!)

    And I'll be turning 18 soon! Hooray :)

  10. Hey, I'm a new follower from the blog hop :) I'm also taking classes - I'm trying to get my degree in graphic design.


Thanks for stopping by! :)
