Book Blogger Hop: March 11-14

It's that time again ... Book Blogger Hop! This weekly event is hosted at Crazy for Books and it's a great way to meet other book bloggers and learn a little more about your fellow bloggers.

This week's question is:
"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?"

Such a good question! I always walk into a bookstore intending to buy one or two books, and walk out with way more than that! So, with $80, this is what I would purchase:

The Paris Wife by Paula McLain
Blood, Bones, and Butter by Gabrielle Hamilton
Paris Times Eight: Finding Myself in the City of Dreams by Deirdre Kelly
The Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown
Of Hockey and Hijab by Sheema Khan

There are a few more that I have on my list, but they haven't been released yet!

So, what would you buy with $80?


  1. Thanks for visiting my blog. I, too, love Jane Eyre. It is definitely in my top 5 favorite books of all time. Might I recommend The Illustrated Jane Eyre illustrated by Dame Darcy? It is one of 3 editions I own and it is my favorite. The illustrations play to the story very well.


  2. The Paris Wife is definitely up there on my list. I can't wait to actually have a chance to go buy it!

  3. 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!

  4. Ooooh, I love the sound of 'Paris Times Eight'! It might be a bit tricky to get hold of over here in England but it's goin' on the wishlist anyway! Glad you like my question... My list is here:
