Book Blogger Hop #5 (8/5/11)

Book Blogger Hop

"Book Blogger Hop" is a weekly social meme hosted by



This week's question is:

“What is the one ARC you would love to get your hands on right now?”


My Answer

Oh, this one is easy! I desperately want an ARC of The Iron Knight by Julie Kagawa! It may not be the only ARC I want really badly, but it's the one that's on the top of my "want" list. And, of course, I can't get one because I'm too new to book blogging, so that's never going to happen. 

But, it's fine because I can wait until it's released and I'll just buy a copy! I like waiting to see what happens next in a series because I usually feel like the journey of the story is more important than the destination, or making it to the finish line. I love to savor the experience and hate when it all has to come to an end.

Anyway, that's my answer, so what's yours, people?


*****

To cold, emotionless faery prince Ash, love was a weakness for mortals and fools. His own love had died a horrible death, killing any gentler feelings the Winter prince might have had. Or so he thought.

Then Meghan Chase—a half human, half fey slip of a girl— smashed through his barricades, binding him to her irrevocably with his oath to be her knight. And when all of Faery nearly fell to the Iron fey, she severed their bond to save his life. Meghan is now the Iron Queen, ruler of a realm where no Winter or Summer fey can survive.

With the (unwelcome) company of his archrival, Summer Court prankster Puck, and the infuriating cait sith Grimalkin, Ash begins a journey he is bound to see through to its end— a quest to find a way to honor his solemn vow to stand by Meghan’s side. To survive in the Iron realm, Ash must have a soul and a mortal body. But the tests he must face to earn these things are impossible. At least, no one has ever passed to tell the tale.

And then Ash learns something that changes everything. A truth that turns reality upside down, challenges his darkest beliefs and shows him that, sometimes, it takes more than courage to make the ultimate sacrifice.

  4. @australian: Thanks for the giveaway info. I'll check that out.

    @pussreboots: I think The Iron Knight is a popular ARC for a lot of bloggers. I love the Iron Fey series, so I can't help it...

    @Howard: Thanks for stopping by, and I, too, would just want to read from my TBR existing published novels list, if I didn't already love some serialized novels.

  10. @Madigan: I know it's at NetGalley, but I haven't been blogging long enough to be eligible to get an ARC.

    And, thanks for the encouragement! Have a great weekend.
