Look up! Is that a Floating Island?

It's been a while since I took part in a blog hop, but I like the question for this one. What book titles stick in your mind?
My answer would have to be The Floating Islands by Rachel Neumeier, though I was probably also affected by the awesome cover...

I came back to it a couple of weeks ago, when an amazing thing happened: Fiction became reality when an artist created an ACTUAL FLOATING ISLAND, which looked completely amazing, and then was released and disappeared, last thought to be somewhere over the Czech Republic....

That's my title story, but there are others on each of the blogs taking part in the Crazy for Books Blog Hop. Please check them out. Also, if you're flying, keep an eye out the window, you never know what you might zoom past... But before you go anywhere... PLEASE CAST YOUR VOTE...

  4. This is a great cover. It makes me want to read, which is the purpose, I suppose. Thanks.

  5. That's a cool cover and cool title. I'll go look it up. Thanks for coming to my blog!

  6. Great title and cover! Definitely intriguing.

  7. That is so cool! How did you end up hearing about the real floating island? I checked out the picture from your link and it's beautiful.

  8. I just caught a random sight of something on a webs news page, and because I'd read the book it attracted my attention. It is spectactualr, so imaginitive. They're making another one, they're going to show it in the states somewhere.

  9. The Floating Island is a cool cover. I would love to visit a place like that. :)
