Blog Hop Friday

Book Blogger Hop
This blog hop is brought to you by Crazy For Books
“Highlight one book you have received this week (for review, from the library, purchased at the store, etc.) that you can’t wait to dig into!”

This week I went down to my local library and was wandering the shelves when I found (drum-roll please):

Being by Kevin Brooks

Synopsis: It was just supposed to be a routine exam. But when the doctors snake the fiber-optic tube down Robert Smith's throat, what they discover doesn't make medical sense. Plastic casings. Silver filaments. Moving metal parts. In his naked, anesthetized state on the operating table, Robert hears the surgeons' shocked comments: "What the hell is that?" "It's me," Robert thinks, "and I've got to get out of here." Armed with a stolen automatic and the videotape of his strange organs, he manages to escape, and to embark on an orphan's violent odyssey to find out exactly who--exactly what--he is.

Sounds great, right??? I just can't believe I never knew about this book until now!!! Needless to say, I can't wait to dig into this!!!



  1. Oh my! I can't imagine what he must have thought when he found out his innards weren't quite right!

  4. Hi, Kristen!

    First of all, let me compliment you on your blog -- it's absolutely BEAUTIFUL!! And the content is GREAT, too!! I'm a new follower, by the way.

    This book sounds very, very interesting, and I'll investigate further.

    Thanks for sharing!! : )

  5. Cassandra- Thanks for the follow!!! I'm also following your blog!!! :))

  6. Ooh. That does sound good! I've posted a picture of an adorable baby pickle. It's an illustration from the book I'm highlighting. Please come see what book I'm reading!

  7. This one sounds good and it's one I've never heard of either. My pick comes from an independent author. Here's the link

  8. That does sound great. On my way to check it out.


  9. I’m seeing a lot of single answer responses with Twilight being by far the most popular choice. I really must analyze all the elements of that series that send girls ga-ga. Such studies are a part of the never-ending "code breaking” we males need to continuously execute to understand and relate with the fairer sex.

    I’ve cracked about 80% of the code. I will continue cracking the code until I reach 100% success. Then I’ll write a book for men and become a billionaire overnight.


    I’ve got four different series I can read over and over again. Three of them were written by deceased authors and three of them are fantasy adventures.

    Follow me back to my blog at and find out how far off the beaten track I’ve gone with my favorite book series!

    Thank God it’s Follow Friday!

  10. I loved this week’s question! I’ve made so many friends in the book blog world and am really impressed with so many blogs it was hard to hunker down and make a choice.
