A weekly meme hosted by Sheila @ One Person's Journey Through a World of Books.
I've devoted my week to one book (A Prayer For Owen Meany) & finished it yesterday. I have lots to write about, so I can't wait to get to the review!
I skipped participating in the Book Hop on Friday but did visit several blogs. I just did not know what to write about books I'm anticipating in 2011. Turns out I wasn't alone--many bloggers I follow posted that they were more invested in their TBR shelves or list. I'm more of a wait & see reader when it comes to newly published books. I read the reviews, look for book bloggers' reviews, and turn up my ear to general word of mouth. But if any of my fave authors publish something new this year, I won't hesitate to read it right away :) So there you have it...
