"What book are you most looking forward to seeing published in 2011? Why are you anticipating that book?"
Oooooh yeah. This is really a toughie(!!!!) because 2011 is going to be a great year for book releases, and there are already quite few that I'm salivating over. But to choose one I'll have to go with the sequel to Meljean Brook's The Iron Duke...which I believe is tentatively titled Heart of Steel and will feature one of the characters introduce in the first book. The first book completely took me by surprise, most especially due to the imaginative world building and epic adventure. I can't wait to go back to the Iron Seas world. ^_^
Now, for this week's Follow Friday (the host of which is none other than the fabulous Parajunkee), the topic is:
As a youngling (say, during K-12), I was always absolutely fascinated by biology. At one point I'd thought, "I want to be an oceanographer!" (even though I have a fear of the vast, deep space of the open seas...but that's a whole other story). In college, I started out with the intention of studying biology, and then fell into linguistics when I had to take an intro Ling. course for a requirement. Well, I was freaking hooked. Call me naive but I had no idea there was a study of the concept of language. Well, that quickly became a favorite subject. It's so fascinating to consider the ways in which humankind develops communication...both conciously and subconsciously; over vast periods of time or within years; at a young age or in adulthood. I could go on all day! ^_^
So there you have it! I hope you're enjoying your own blog surfing, and look forward to crossing virtual paths!
