Book Blogger Hop Wow, Friday already?!  This week just FLEW by!  ANYway, today is Book Blogger hop!  This is a meme hosted by Crazy For Books Here's a little bit about the hop:

In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and find new book-related blogs that we may be missing out on! This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books! It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs that they may not know existed!  Click on the button to join the hop!

Here's the question posed by the hop today: 
Tell us about the book you are currently reading?

I'm reading a few things right now, and it's one of those things where I am trying to latch onto a good one.  I started the Craig Ferguson memoir, but meh.... not grabbing me.  I also started his novel and again... meh.  I have also started The Afflicted Girls, which is good, actually they are ALL good, but none of them really GRAB me.  BUT, one of the ARC's that was sent to me by Simon and Schuster Canada called "Nevermore" by Kelly Creagh is VERY good and may be THE ONE that stands out and grabs.  So far it is pretty good! 

I'm also reading several dog training books, the best one so far is called When Pigs Fly by Jane Killion, but I am also reading The Thinking Dog by Gail Tamases Fisher.. FANTASTIC!  There are a few more in my pile of training books, but these are the stand-outs for sure! 

Have a happy friday!

Hi Lisa, I'm on the Hop! Lovely to meet another Canadian blogger!

I've had a real YA slump the last, oh 12 months - I'm struggling to find a good paranormal one because after a while they all seem the same. What's Nevermore about?

Like what you've done with the place ;)

Also, I love your vlog. I love that you said "ginormous" because that is one of my favorite non-wordy words. Adding you to my RSS thingy!

Hey Shannon! To be honest, I have no idea what Nevermore is about and I am weird that way.. I like to go in FRESH with some books! You can read all about it on the author's website though at: Thanks for stopping by!

Hi--just hopping (and following) back. Didn't know Scott Westerfeld's new steampunk was ARC-ing already--now, that's on my TBR list (and I'm with you--I'd love an ARC!)

Looking forward to your reviews!
