Book trailer: My Name is Memory by Ann Brashares & Blog Hop!

I've seen this book featured on a few blogs already, and when the accompanying trailer arrived at my inbox last week, I thought I'd share it with you.  This looks like a delightfully romantic read, perfect for summer and described as a cross between The Time Traveler's Wife and Twilight.  It was the Twilight comparison that caught my attention, I have to admit!  I'm one of only three people in the whole world who didn't like The Time Traveler's Wife!   I'm looking forward to checking this one out though. According to the press release, a major Hollywood movie is in the works for this one too. Exciting times! My Name is Memory by Ann Brashares will be available from June 24th 2010. (UK)

If any US readers have already read this one, let me know what you thought.  






And...since it's Friday, I'll be doing some blog hopping! I haven't participated in a while, so I'm hoping to find some great new blogs today!


 
This is a fun event hosted by Jennifer at Crazy-for-Books 

If you start following through the Hop, leave a comment on the blog to let  me know!  I will be sure to check out your blog and follow back.  Most importantly, the idea of the hop is to HAVE FUN!!

  2. Hi, thanks for visiting my blog! (http://fourthmusketeer.blogspot.com)

    I have signed up to follow yours. I was interested in your thoughts about net galley--I signed up for it but I don't have an e-reader and I actually haven't read any of the galleys I requested. I discovered I really don't like to read on a computer! However, my 15-year-old daughter read the entire next Jacky Faber book, which I had requested, which is over 500 pages, on net-galley!

  4. Hi, hopping on by..I'm your newst follower (returning the favour).

    Cool blog you have here..I love your profiled pic - a Nadal fan I see. I'm a fan too, but I'm with Murray. Surely he's got to get to the final of Wimbledon this year and win it hopefully!

  10. Hi to new followers! *waves* I think I've followed everyone back, although the Google Friend Connect widget seems to be playing up for me at the moment!

    @Margo - I don't really like reading on the PC either. I'm seriously thinking of investing in an ereader. There are some titles on NetGalley that I really want to read!

    @AngelGoneMad - I'm a Rafanatic! He's the only man for me. lol! He lost today though. Boo! :(

  15. Thanks for dropping by my blog. I really want to read the Ann Brashares book. I need to see if the library has it. I love Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants written by her.

  17. I am stopping by on the hop. I see thoughtful, professional reviews here. I read a story when I was a kid about Marie Antoinette and have never forgotten how she was sent from her sheltered home life to the French court. She was a casualty of the period and her station. Oddly (or not so), Marie Antoinette was the given name of a close relative. She went by Toni - can't think why.

  18. @Steph I always felt the same about Marie-Antoinette. History is very harsh on her! I'm glad you like the review. :)
