Follow Friday + The Book Blogger Hop

Happy Friday, everybody!  A warm welcome to everyone stopping by my blog for the first time today via the Book Blogger Hop (hosted by Crazy-for-Books) or Follow Friday (hosted by Rachel at Parajunkee's View), as well as to any old followers dropping by to say hi.  This week, Friday isn't really the last day of school for me, because my school district thought it would be extra fun necessary suitably torturous to make us all have to attend Saturday school to make up for missed snow days. Yay...
Anyway, leave me the link to your blog when you comment to say hi, and I'll be sure to hop on by and return the following favor later. Only a few days left to enter my giveaway to win the Iron Fey trilogy by Julie Kagawa! And be sure to check out my interview with Dori Jones Yang, author of YA historical fiction novel Daughter of Xanadu, for a chance to win her book.(Just page your cursor over for the links, people-- I really need to make them a different text color.)


The featured blogger over at FF is Marie of Mission to Read . Be sure to stop by her blog and follow if you haven't already.  This week's question is

What is/was your favorite subject in school?

My answer: My best subject is English by far, but I'm just crazy about history.  History teachers are the best of the high school bunch, in my experience.  And there's nothing especially painful about learning cool historical facts and stuff about ancient eras, etc, at least not for me.  I like Spanish, tambien, and it's a given for such a literature/history-minded person that anything Math just plain right out sucks.  Don't even mention Algebra to me, please. :)
And the question over at the Book Blogger Hop is:
 "What book are you most looking forward to seeing published in 2011?  Why are you anticipating that book?"

My answer: Answering this question is like cruel and unusual torture.  There are so many books I'm looking forward to this year! Scanning my Goodreads 'to be released' category, I'm going to have to pick Beauty Queens by Libba Bray.  She's one of my absolute favorite authors, and I know this tale of crashlanded beauty queens on a Lost(!)-like deserted island will not disappoint!

I hope you all have an awesome (and very long) weekend!!

I enjoy learning English. I have learnt it since I was in elementary school. but still need to learn more words.

History was a great subject when I was in Junior High School before the teacher was changing

Happy Friday, Kat!

I think my favourite subject in school was French because I already spoke it, and I kind of just skated along all lazy and such ;)

Kayla said...

@Melissa-- Lucky you, impressing all the French teachers without even trying! I went to France to visit my cousins, and the only thing I knew was 'Bonjour'! ;)

@Lucia-- In the words of the great Libba Bray, if you mention the word 'algebra' to me I'll actually panic and shout something like 'Look! Baby foxes!' in order to distract you and make my escape. So, 'LOOK! Baby foxes!' ;)

Happy Friday Kat! This weeks hop question is torture, I could never narrow it down to just one book, maybe 5. I could probably handle 5:) Beauty Queen is a great pick, I'm really interested in that one as well!

Andrea said...
