Blog Hop and Follow Friday

It's time for Blog Hop and Follow Friday!

This weekly meme is hosted by Jennifer @ Crazy for Books.   Spread the word
on your blog and start hopping.  Go talk about books and have fun!!!!

THIS WEEK'S QUESTIONTell us about the book(s) you are currently reading.

I am currently reading The Secret (of Happiness): An Offbeat Fairytale-Thriller by Demosthenes Armeniades is a novel I knew nothing about when I started reading it, but the writer's style is quirky, fun, and completely mesmerizing and I am totally hooked.  I have no idea what it going to happen, but there is an element of suspense that is keeping me on the edge of my seat, a dark aura around it, and I can't wait to see what happens.

I am also in the midst of The Left Hand of God by Paul Hoffman and I really don't know what to think about this one, although it has me completely hooked.  It's dark, and the boys have suffered so much abuse at the hands of the Redeemers, it's also heartbreaking, but at the same time, there's an element of hope throughout the novel too.  I can't wait to find out what happens to Cale and the other boys. 



Another great blog hop is Follow Friday, hosted by Rachel @ Parajunkee's View.
