Who's ready to party?

Ultimate Blog Party 2008

Welcome to the party! 5 Minutes for Mom is hosting their annual Ultimate Blog Party - a great time and a fun way to meet other bloggers. To thank you for stopping by, to give you a chance to see what I do here at OpinionRated, and in the spirit of party favors I'm offering links to my two favorite books of all time, my two favorite books from 2007, and a book I've read recently.

Favorites of all time
These two are easy - definietly C.S. Lewis' Till We Have Faces and David James Duncan's The Brother's K (no, not the Russian classic, this is a different one). Have you read them? If so, let's talk!! If you haven't...get reading!

Favorites of 2007
This one's really hard to narrow down since I read so many great books. But I'll go with Yann Martel's Life of Pi and...of course... JKR's Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Same question - Have you read them? If so, let's talk!! If you haven't...get reading!

Favorite recent read

This one's the hardest of all, since I'm in the middle of so many great ones. But one absolutly fantastic book I'm reading right now is The Soul of Christianity by Huston Smith. Read it? Read it!

OpinionRated is primarily a review blog; I also do giveaways and post links to other giveaways I know about. Subscribed to OpinionRated if you'd like to keep tabs on the giveaways, and if you have a giveaway you'd like me to post a link to, just email me at lyricpoetry at gmail dot com. You can also party hop over to my personal blog, everyday life as lyric poetry.

I love to hear from you in the comments section. Thanks for coming by, and nice to meet you!

Whew! You are definitely a reader. I'm not so much these days. My little one doesn't allow the time it seems!

Enjoy your latest finds and have a great party!

wow I live CS Lewis and Deathly Hallows was my favorite read this past year. I probably shouldn't tell you but I went to the midnight release party incostune ni less. Yes there are pictures on my blog. You've got to stop by. I review books on my blog! I've also got a contest going called "how well read are you?" The prize I'm offering is a gift card to Barnes & Noble.

Hope to see you there!!

I love to read, but I usually stick to chick lit. I like to escape into something fun!

I'm also a big fan of Harry Potter. I'm going to miss not having new HP books to look forward to.

Party hopping - I love your choices. My kind of party - one that includes books.

Very diverse reading Pi and Potter in the same area. lol Nice to met someone at this bloggie party, that is so interesting to listen to as you speak/write.
Your reviews are very tickling to my mind. A nice way to look at stories I had not seen.
I can respect you for seeing the world in a different light. We need more people to show us different views of things we see but rarely look at to really SEE more then the surface.
Thank you

I love to read and do book reviews on my blog.

Still hopping from blog to blog... my goal is to post at each blog at least once. Nice to meet you. Happy blogging!
