Follow Friday & Book Blogger Hop!

It's that time of the week again and everyone who doesn't have to work over the weekend can rejoice! Unlike me you might be able to stay in bed until 1 PM tomorrow!
Book Blogger Hop
On to this weeks BBH. This meme is hosted by Crazy for Books and this weeks question is:

What book are you most looking forward to seeing published in 2011 and why?
I think I already talked about this book a lot, but I'm just sooo exited!!! The Midnight Palace by Carlos Ruiz Zafon. It will be released 9th of June and I can't wait. I love everything that is written by Zafon. His style is simply amazing. He knows how to create tension and atmosphere and keep it throughout 300 pages. I seriously loose contact with the rest of the world when I read one of his books. And with this one probably won't be any different!

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee's View and this weeks question is:
What is/was your favourite subject in school?

When I still lived in the Netherlands I did Greek, Latin and Hebrew and I liked those a lot. Don't get me wrong, I hated grammar, but the ability to read stories in the language they were written was something I desperatly wanted. Now my favourite subject is probably English, History or Religious Studies. I know that those are three of my four AS-levels, but they are so interlinked!

How about you???


  1. I liked math, particularly algebra, and grammar. But I would be hard pressed to have perfect grammar now.

    Glad to have found you via the Hop. Enjoy sleeping in this weekend!
