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!

And the winner is....

The winner of The Post Birthday World is....Hollibobolli! I have to say, the competition wasn't very stiff, but I guess that's what I get for giving mixed reviews to a book I was offering. It really is a fascinating book, so I can't wait to find out what you think of it, Hollibobolli!
