Follow My Book Blog Friday! (04/29 to 05/06)

Today’s featured blog is Starting the Next Chapter, is a very cool looking blog so don’t forget to visit and follow! Let’s say hello to Marla who is running the show over there.
This week’s question is a very hard one!

Q. Keeping with the dystopian and apocalypse theme that seems to be running rampant on parajunkee.com, I have one very hard question for you: If you were stocking your bomb shelter, what books would you HAVE to include if you only had space for ten?

Mines are, in no particular order (except the first one that is my favorite book EVER and I must have read a thousand times!):
Follow My Book Blog Friday Hosted by parajunkee.com

  1. Timeline by Michael Chrichton
  2. Carnal Innocence by Nora Roberts
  3. The Unsung Hero by Suzanne Brockmann
  4. Over the Edge by Suzanne Brockmann
  5. Angels Fall by Nora Roberts
  6. Demon Nigh by Meljean Brook
  7. Shades of Twilight by Linda Howard
  8. After the Night by Linda Howard
  9. It Had to Be You by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
  10. Can I cheat on this one and just say my Kindle? No? Ok then, my last pick is Private Scandals by Nora Roberts.

There you go! Hopefully the apocalypse never comes because choosing books would be terrible (that’s right, if the apocalypse comes my main concern would be which books to save…).

Hi there!!! As Brie told you I was camping Thursday night at Buckinghan Palace. After a long night and day (from 9pm Thursday to 4pm Friday with no sleep) I saw everyone: Kate, Prince William, The Queen, Prince Charles and Prince Harry, Kate's Family and even Prince Felipe and Princess Letizia from Spain!!!! I'll post the photos later.

Well this is my list:

  1. Lover Awakened by JR Ward
  2. Mr. Perfect by Linda Howard
  3. Chesapeake Blue by Nora Roberts
  4. Shopaholic & Baby by Sophie Kinsella
  5. Can you keep a Secret by Sophie Kinsella
  6. Sweet Trouble by Susan Mallery
  7. Over the Edge by Suzanne Brockmann
  8. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
  9. Unlawful Contract by Pamela Clare
  10. Aint She Sweet by Susan Elizabeth Phillips

It is really hard to choose so probably, if you ask me in a month or so, I will give you a different list.


  1. Hey, Brie! Thanks for the visit. :) Thanks for adding me on Twitter, as well. I'll pop over there now and follow you back. Have a great Friday!

  2. Hi Marla! Thank you very much! Congrats on being featured!

    Hoppy Friday!!!


  8. Sounds like Marie will probably have fun though. ;) I haven't heard of any of your picks, sadly. Probably have to check them out now, if they're apocalypse-important!

    My list can be found here!

  9. Hi guys! thanks for coming by. I'm following you all!

  10. Hello! Stopping by on the blog hop!!
    You have a great selection! :)
    ~Happy Blogging!~

  11. Thanks for commenting (:

    I haven't read any of the books on your list, but I'll have to check them out! The only ones I've heard about are the Nora Roberts ones, and I hear they're great!

  12. Was it hard for you to pick only ten books? I need to be able to have at least 15, lol.

  13. Oh my! You know, I haven't read any of the books you mentioned but they seems really interesting. I checked them in Goodreads.com and added some of them. TBR list is growing bigger and bigger!

  14. I’d wanna take my kindle too, then again, there could be problems keeping a charge…who knows?
    Here’s my friday follow: http://booksavvybabe.blogspot.com

  15. Hey Brie, just stopping by on the follow. Oh, Carnal Innocence was a great pick.
    I'm so fickle my favorites change quite a bit.
    Come over and visit and see what I think this week.
    Have a terrific weekend reading !!!
    See ya!

  16. Carnal Innocence is the best! I love the laid back southern hero! He is one of Nora's best!

  17. I love your book collection! My thinking is, is that if we all just went in the same bomb shelter together so then we wouldn't really have to pick. As a whole group we would have all the books we need!

    GREAT BLOG! You have a new follower!

    Check out my answers http://extraordinarybooksblog.blogspot.com/2011/04/follow-friday.html

  18. Hi Brie,
    Stopping by from Follow Friday. Great book choices. I see you're a Nora Roberts fan. I'm going to give her a try one of these days.

    I'm a new follower.

    Please come on over and check out my 10 picks:

  19. Thank you so much Brie for giving me help with the blockquote! It worked FINALLY! I was going out of my mind, my husband was ready to make me get off the computer. Thank you!

  20. Hi Linds! I’m glad the link was useful. All this blogging tricks are an absolute pain. Two weeks ago I was learning how to do the blockquotes so I understand how you feel. Right now I’m trying to figure out the intensedebate thing and I’m about to kill someone! Hehehehe.

  21. Haha, Bri, I see you want to take your Kindle too. I guess that's considered cheating.

    Thank you for visiting my blog! (: I'm from Holland, so my first language is Dutch.

    Anyway, hope to talk to you soon!

  22. Hi Celine! Yep it is cheating, but since we are supposed to be in the middle of the apocalypse I doubt people are going to concerned themselves with whether I followed the rules and didn’t bring my Kindle with me…

    How cool it is that you are from Holland! The closest I’ve been to Holland was during a fly connection trough Schiphol, but I never actually stepped outside the airport… I’m dying to go there though!

    Thanks for visiting our blog!

  23. Hi Brie,
    Thanks for stopping by my blog -- I love yours!!

    I'm so jealous -- in a good way! Hope you had a great time at the wedding!!


  24. Hello Yvonne! Thanks for coming by, you are our lucky follower number 151!

  25. Hi Yvonne!!! I did have a great time...spent like 12 hours on my feet though. Thanks for coming!


Blogger likes to eat comments, so I suggest copying it before hitting "publish" just in case it doesn't go through the first time. This is a pain, I know, but it's the only solution/prevision I can think of, and it will save you the frustration of losing a comment. Also, thanks for visiting!
