Friday Book Blog Hops for September 28th

Feature Follow #5

Gain new followers and make new friends with the Book Blogger Feature & Follow hosted weekly by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read! The point of this hop is to follow other bloggers also. I follow you, you follow me. :D

Q: What is the BIGGEST word you’ve seen used in a book lately – that made you stop and look it up? Might as well leave the definition & book too.

Well I am reading "The Hallowed Ones" by Laura Bickle and it really isn't long words that I have come across lately but only different languages. Check this out.

 "Unser Vadder im Himmel
Dei Naame loss heilich sei,
Dei Reich loss komme,
Dei Wille loss gedu sei,
Uff die Erd wie in Himmel,
User deeglich Brot gebb uns heit,
Un vergebb unser Schulde,..."

And it goes on for a while. Any guesses? It's The Lords Prayer in the Amish Deitsch tongue. YEP! I just skipped over that part! LOL!! :D And if you can read that GOOD FOR YOU! and understand it, please let me know! LOL! And BTW it's a really good book!

No Giveaways and the book I read this week I can't post the review until the Blog Tour. :( I hate when that happens because I can't read and post a review for the week fast enough sometimes, when I have a blog tour book to read too. But I can tell you about the book that I read and it was AMAZING if you like the whole "hot vampires love story" kind of thing. :0)

The book is The Life And Death Of Lily Drake by T. Michelle Nelson
The Goodreads summary goes something like this...

"For Lily Drake, slaying vampires is easy...Dating them is the hard part.

Lily Drake is your everyday hard-working single mom…until a gorgeous vampire shows up on her front door who she mistakenly assumes is her blind date for the evening. As one crazy scenario after another unfolds, Lily finds herself falling in love with two vampires, slaying the evil ones, and being prophesied as the savior of the entire undead race. 
Deciding between pizza and Chinese take-out will no longer be one of the hard decisions facing Lily Drake once she is emerged into vampire society. Humanity or immortality? That doesn't hold a candle against this question - which of the two handsome vampire cousins?

The Life and Death of Lily Drake is not your typical vampire love story. It’s a tale about the humorous mistakes a woman makes simply trying to survive not only life, but the dating scene. How will Lily manage working full-time, taking care of her young son and fighting the undead at every turn?
Lily will have to figure it out, but who better to save the world than a mom?"

Add it to your TBR pile because you will love it. :D

So what words have stumped you or that one post this week that you want to spotlight? Please let me know what you think about mine and I'll stop by and visit your Fridays Blog Hop post! Thanks and Have A Great Weekend!!

Hi, I'm a new follower through GFC =)
I can read that because I know German and some Dutch, but it's interesting to see a different dialect =)

Nickie said...

It can be really tricky to work in foreign language sections into a story without losing your reader. I would have never guessed that was the Lord's Prayer!

Great answer. It's always fun when you know a bit of another language (i.e. french or spanish or something) and recognize words. Not so much when the language is totally foreign to you.:D New follower via GFC. My FFs are at Musings on Fantasia and LKHill. Happy Friday! :D

Jessica @ a GREAT read said...

Ooh I don't like when they use foreign languages and don't translate afterwards. It's hard! And looking up words in a foreign language is harder than it is to pull out good ol Webster!

Here's my Follow Friday

Have a GREAT weekend!

I would have had to look it up too , I took German in school but I can't remember any of it LOL.

Ha ha! Awesome! I love coming across the language thing in new books! And weirdly enough, I especially love it when the author doesn't clue is in!!! Weird, I know, but I just can't help it. It's the mystery that does me in ;)

I know exactly what you mean about it being hard to schedule reviews when reading books you can't post about for a while. So frustrating!
