Hoppin, Hoppin, Hoppin........

We've reached another Friday!  Sometimes, it feels like the week is more than 5 days from Monday-Friday.......    but as I said, it is finally Friday -- and time for the Book Blogger Hop!  Thanks to Jennifer at Crazy for Books, the Hop allows me to go around visiting blogs, discovering new blogs, and having some fun from Friday-Monday.  This week's question comes from Aliyah, who asks: "What book are you most looking forward to seeing published in 2011?  Why are you anticipating that book?"


Um....  I can't believe I'm supposed to choose only one book.  !!!   But I will say, the one on my mind right now is China Mieville's newest book, Embassytown, which is coming out in May, 2011.  I've already pre-ordered my copy from BookDepository.co.uk because I am a huge fan of China Mieville.   This is the summary from Library Journal: "On a distant planet in the distant future, humans and aliens regard each other suspiciously but manage to coexist. Then a new group of humans drop in."   Sounds like something completely different from this author, but I know I won't be disappointed.    As I said, this is just one book in 2011 I'm looking forward to ....   and I'll be interested to see what everyone else is putting down as their answer for this Hop's question. Happy Friday, everyone!!

What does this author normally write? Is it always science fiction?

Hi Jo, just hopping through and hoping you have a good weekend. That book cover is very attractive, dystopian New yorkish. Hope you enjoy it!!!

I am SO looking forward to Embassytown! it sounds weird and wonderful, everything I miss about Mieville's older stuff.

Looks like you're gonna be getting Embassytown way before me, so I'm expecting you to post a review right after you get it!!! :)

but even more so, I'm crazy waiting for THe Wise Man's Fear by Patrick Rothfuss.
