Fridays with Fred & Book Blogger Hop

It’s time for Book Blogger Hop and Fridays with Fred.  Wow!  This week blew by, huh?  I love Friday (my fav day…TGIF.)  Anyway, the Book Blogger Hop has an interesting question this week.  I actually submitted a question last week.  I’m not sure if someone’s submitted it already, so we’ll have to wait and see.
Book Blogger Hop

This week's question comes from Ellie who blogs at Musings of a Bookshop Girl:

 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 one’s fun. Okay. At first, I said I’d put the $ towards a Kindle, but then I recanted. As much as I'd relish a Kindle, I’d probably prefer an iPad instead. That being said, I easily listed these books in no particular order:

Nevermore by Kelly Creagh
Succubus Blues by Richelle Mead’s
Born to Bite by Lynsay Sands
Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare
Bite Club by Rachel Caine
No Rest for the Wicked by Kresely Cole
Ten Stories about Smoking by Stuart Evers

NevermoreSuccubus BluesBorn to Bite: An Argeneau Novel (Argeneau Vampires)
 Clockwork Angel (The Infernal Devices, Book 1)Bite Club (Morganville Vampires, Book 10)No Rest for the Wicked (Immortals After Dark, Book 2)Ten Stories about Smoking. by Stuart Evers

And now on to Fridays with Fred

Did you know this past Tuesday was Fat Tuesday?  Well…now you do.  Fred did his own thing as usual as did his friends.  I decided to give Fred a rest this week and feature one of his buds.  This picture comes from Carla and what a picture it is.  This is either Darcy or Sophie – not sure which and the mask doesn’t help.  This pooch is all decked out and in full Fat Tuesday mode.  I love it.  Happy Mardi Gras!

Don't forget to check out Schatze over at Mary/Bookhounds.  Fred really adores her.

Until next time...enjoy your weekend!

Sophie says wow I wasn't expecting to see my picture when I came looking for that handsome Fred man. Thanks Mina!

I think Clockwork Angel sounds like a cool read. And the others too.

Have a good weekend Mina and Fred!

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!
