Comments for Book Blogger Hop for March 11, 2011
Today's question asks what books I would purchase if someone gave me $80. Two books came immediately to mind: Silverlicious by Victoria Kann and How to Survive a Killer Seance by Penny Warner. As a family we are huge fans of the Pinkalicious series and I'm just as big a fan of Penny Warner's newest series.
Those two books bring me to about $21.00. I went to my massive GoodReads wishlist (hovering around 700 books) and narrowed it down four more books: The Scorch Trials by James Dashner, The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff, Feed by Mira Grant and The Adventures of the Vin Fiz by Clive Cussler.
That brings my total up to $70.16. I'm getting my price estimates from Title Wave. The remaining ten dollars would take care of price differences at the local book store and sales tax (roughly 10% where I live).

Very eclectic mix! I have not read Penny Warner's books, but that title sounds really interesting! I'm also probably one of the few who hasn't read James Dashner yet! One of these days! :) Thanks for stopping by the hop! Have a great weekend!

If you like cozy mysteries, you should read Penny Warner's books.

I only actively started using my wishlist on Goodreads last year. I will probably be up to 1200 books in no time flat.
Comment #5: Friday, March, 11, 2011 at 12:17:43
Aw. Very cool selections!
I hope you have a great weekend! :)
Comment #6: Friday, March 11, 2011 at 19:30:21
Thank you. Same to you.
Comment #7: Friday, March, 11, 2011 at 15:25:30
I should check out Silverlicious! My daughter loves the Pinkalicious series. I haven't read any of the others on your list.
Comment #8: Friday, March 11, 2011 at 19:31:52
Maybe in the future we'll both have Silverlicious.
Wow! What a great question this week. I always peek at other people's book piles at the checkout link at B&N. That doesn't make me a voyeur, does it?
The exhibitionist in me has posted my own bookstore shopping list — and it's not as predictable as you may think!
Hop on over to my blog for all the suspense and chills of my TBR list.
Happy Hop Friday!

I've been known to do that too when I'm either out buying books or at my local library.
Comment #11: Friday, March, 11, 2011 at 18:44:22
Only 700 on Goodreads??? Got ya beat by almost 450!! I really want to read The Replacement too! Great list, thanks for sharing it and for stopping by!
Comment #12: Friday, March 11, 2011 at 19:40:48
I only started using the list in earnest a year ago. I'll catch up to you soon enough.
Comment #13: Friday, March, 11, 2011 at 18:59:01
How to Survive a Killer Seance sounds interesting. I'm going to have to look that one up!
Comment #14: Friday, March 11, 2011 at 19:42:25
I hope you do. It's the third in the series but the books stand alone well enough.
Comment #15: Friday, March, 11, 2011 at 19:11:44
Wow, out of all your list, I've only heard of Feed. I'll have to check out the other titles to get some insight. :) Thank you for visiting and for following! New follower here! Happy hopping and reading this weekend!
Comment #16: Friday, March 11, 2011 at 19:43:31
Silverlicious is a picture book. How to Survive a Killer Seance is a cozy mystery set in the San Francisco Bay Area. The Clive Cussler book is a tween adventure book set Monterey. The rest are Y.A. Happy reading!

I am impressed with your accounting prowess!! I didn't even estimate mine, knowing I was probably over and would more than likely supplement from my own wallet. I'm there anyway, right?
Thanks for stopping by!
Comment #20: Friday, March 11, 2011 at 19:48:34
I probably would have just made a list if I weren't currently in a class where I'm required to make lists that include prices.

A wishlist of around 700 books? Wow!
Comment #24: Friday, March 11, 2011 at 19:51:23
Yup. 700 give or take. But I'm reading books off the list too.
Comment #25: Friday, March, 11, 2011 at 23:12:37
Wow! You really thought that question through!! Thanks for stopping by my blog! :)
Comment #26: Monday, March 11, 2011 at 19:26:31
I don't know... I only spent about five minutes making my list.
Comment #27: Friday, March, 11, 2011 at 23:25:31
I loooove Clive Cussler! I haven't read anything by Penny Warner, but I'll definitely check her out. Thanks for stopping by my blog! :)
Comment #28: Monday, March 11, 2011 at 19:27:32
I do too. This book is the start of a line of tween books he's writing.
Comment #29: Saturday, March, 12, 2011 at 02:15:32

Thank you for the follow. Happy reading!

How to Survive A Killer Seance looks interesting...I've been wanting to read Feed for afairly long time myself...
Comment #32: Monday, March 11, 2011 at 19:30:32
I am making the effort to read books from my wishlist right now. So I will get to Feed either this year or early next year. I'm getting my books mostly via the library so there's only a certain number I can get and read at a time.
I have enjoyed every single mystery by Penny Warner I've read so far. She writes great cozy mysteries set in California.
Comment #33: Saturday, March, 12, 2011 at 08:28:58
Oh wow, 700 books? I thought mine was huge at 450! The Maze Runner is on my to-read list, and I adored The Replacement and Feed.
Thanks for hopping by my blog!
Comment #34: Monday, March 11, 2011 at 19:34:22
The most eye opening thing about my wishlist is that it only took me a year to compile it.
Comment #35: Saturday, March, 12, 2011 at 10:23:49
Somer @ A Bird's Eye Review
Wow great choices! I also like Pinkalicious series. Feed also looks good! Happy Hopping!
Comment #36: Monday, March 11, 2011 at 20:03:02
Thank you. I hope to get to Feed later this year.
Comment #37: Saturday, March, 12, 2011 at 22:10:15
This weeks blog hop has thrown up some lovely books.
Comment #38: Monday, March 11, 2011 at 20:05:21
Yes it has. Thanks for stopping by.

Thanks for putting me in your budget! Let me know if you or any of your readers would like some "party favors"--an evidence bag (perfect for keeping your lunch safe in the community refrigerator), a mini-Ouija board/keychain (for quick answers to your most pressing questions), and a magnetic bookmarks (never loses its place...except on Kindle...).

Thank you for the offer.
