Book Blogger Hop and Follow Friday

Book Blogger Hop

This week's question:
"What book are you most looking forward to seeing published in 2011?  Why are you anticipating that book?"

My Answer:
This question was quite an easy one for me! Which is surprising, because usually I have to sit and ponder over these Hop questions. I picked City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare. This is probably going to be a popular one, but I had to answer honestly didn't I? I've been waiting for this book to come out ever since Cassandra Clare announced that she's writing three more books in the TMI series. Now I just can't wait to see some more Jace! Ehem, of course, I want to see more of Clary and Simon too... *shifty eyes*

This week's question:

What is/was your favorite subject in school?

Hmm.. this one is slightly harder! At the moment, I'm only studying ICT, which I quite enjoy. When I was doing my GCSEs, my favourite subject would probably have been history or English. But we had rubbish teachers, and so I didn't really feel into it at the time. Now I miss them! 
I wish I had a better Spanish teacher, because I am in love with that language, but my teacher was horrific. But now I'm teaching myself, and my great aunt (who lives in Mallorca) is helping me. I love it!


  1. I've been on your blog for a total of one minute and I already LOVE YOU! Hello Dean Winchester, you're looking deliciously sexy today :) Haha. Nice Jensen eye-candy when I'm going to bed shortly ;)

    No-one throw books at me, but I'm not the 'biggest' fan of the TMI books. HOWEVER! I do like them and will definitely be checking out COFA! Quite excited for the movie too :D

    Totally with you on having bad teachers. Had a few in my time and they turned some great subjects into not so great ones :/ Good luck with your Spanish!

  2. *Throws books* Okay, no. Just kidding! :D I'm excited for the movie. I really hope they don't muck it up.

    Haha, Dean does attract a lot of people. I keep him there for the eye-candy ;D And thanks!

    Thank you :) Urgh, I could go on all day about bad teachers. I honestly can't think of one decent A Level teacher in my school. I'm surprised they are qualified. Anyway, it's Friday, so I shan't rant! Have a great weekend!

  3. *chucks a book at Brodie* Sorry, reflex reaction! :) I really can't wait for COFA either! I am totally feeling the Jace love, and I'm not ashamed of it! My gosh, I'm using a lot of exclamation points! I guess that's just what this series does to me: reduces me to a babbling pile of fangirl.
    So yeah, loving your blog so far, Amber! I'm a new follower hopping over from FF. Looking forward to getting to know you better :)

  4. That sucks about your teachers; I know I enjoyed some of my subjects mostly because I had a great teacher.

  5. New follower from FF :)


  6. Hey! I'm your newest follower. The book I'm most looking forward to is the sequel to Philip Reeve's Fever Crumb published by Scholastic. If you're a fan of Hunger Games or Maze Runner, then check that one out!

    When you get the chance, please visit and consider following me at one of my blogs: http://teachwithpicturebooks.blogspot.com

  7. Thanks for stopping by my blog ^_^. You may feel left out because you haven't read any Kelley Armstrong but I'll let you know I haven't read any Cassandra Clare yet. Clockwork Angel is on my TBR though so this will be remedied soon.

  8. Man, that cover for the next MI book is gorgeous. Even shows a little glimse of a face this time! ^_^

    Not gonna lie...I had to look up what ICT meant. ^_^ I'm used to IT, but don't believe I'd ever seen the longer acronym before. (Eek. I'm so not with it, it seems!) That's really cool that you dig both the tech and humanities. And that yer learning Spanish! ^_^

    My Need To Read

  9. Happy Friday, Amber!

    I think I'm most looking forward to either Anna Dressed in Blood or The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer this year...because of the covers AND the premises!

    My favourite subject in school was definitely French :)

  10. That's awesome that you have a great aunt to help you with Spanish! Ironically, my great aunt is from Ecuador, though I've never spoken with her in Spanish. You'd think I'd take advantage of that though...lol.

    Have a great weekend!

  11. Hi there! Interesting pick for your anticipated 2011 release! I need to read the Mortal Instruments series!

    I'm stopping by from the blog hop!

    I'm a new follower!

    Happy Reading!

  12. Hi,

    Stopping by for the follow blog hop friday.
    And to let you know I am a new follower.


  13. Thanks for stopping by my blog - I'm your newest follower!

    CoFA is up there on my list as well, but I have to admit that Cassie's Clockwork Prince is up there higher for me. I really fell in love with that series.

    Have a great weekend!

  14. City of Fallen Angels is the chose too! I can't wait for the book! Or movie! I hope they'll do a good job with it.

    I know the feeling of bad teaching. Most of my high school teachers were like that.

    Here's mine

  15. Yep, can't wait for the next Mortal Instruments to come out. I am almost done with the third one and am dying with anticipation to know what happens. I love Jace too. And sheepishly, am routing for Alec and Magnus.

  16. hurray for you reading TMI! im only on book 2 but i cant wait to see what happens with jace and clary!

    ps. new follower :)

  20. I am looking forward to the whole series, I haven't read it yet. Happy Weekend!

    My FF and Blog hops

  21. Despite me not being a fan of Cassandra Claire;s previous works, i looking forward to that book to. It sounds...different, intriguing

  22. What's ICT?
    My favorite subject was Art... and Theatre... and English. I've very right-brained, I guess.

    Everyone is so looking forward to the newest in The Mortal Instruments series. I read the first two and I just couldn't get into them. Jace seemed so overbearing and unpleasant to me! I have trouble picturing him as a dreamboat since he's covered in scars and so surly all the time. Also! Incest! Gross! To each his or her own, I suppose.

    I put together a list of books I'm looking forward to about a week ago.

  23. New follower here! :)
    MY favorite subject last year was history, but that was only because I had an awesome teacher.

  24. Thanks for visiting my blog. I haven't really got into this series, but I know lots of people who are really looking for this book in particular! Great pick!

  25. I heart your avatar picture. I could stare at that face for a long time. I love Supernatural!

    Anyway, thanks so much for hopping by my blog. I'm a new follower. I've got so many many novels I'm waiting for in 2011 and your pick is definitely up there! Just got to finish the third novel.

    Happy reading!

  26. Old follower here--City of Fallen Angels was one of my picks too! I'm so excited to see what the Shadowhunters are up too, and Simon too of course lol
