Book Blogger Hop + Follow Friday (13)

12:09 AM

Follow Friday and Book Blogger Hop are weekly events hosted by Rachel at Parajunkee and Jennifer at Crazy-for-Books respectively. 


This week's FF question is: What makes up your non-human family?

Meet Georgia, my family's cockatiel bird. Not only is she older than me, but she also loves to drive my sister nuts and says, "Pretty bird!" 


This week's BBH question is: Why do you read the genre that you do? What draws you to it?

I love reading YA fiction but within this category, I don't stick to a particular genre! I'll read anything ranging from paranormal, dystopian, contemporary, romance, etc., etc.! I try to keep an open mind and as long as the story sounds like something I would enjoy, then I'll read it! I'm drawn to these stories in that anything can happen- a girl can find her prince, zombies can rise from the dead... I'm sure you know what I mean. I also read adult books sometimes! They usually have some sort of crossover appeal and even more often times, they're urban fantasy with kick-butt main characters and some hot romance scenes. *blushes*

What about you guys?

Thanks so much for dropping by and don't be shy to leave your blog link so I can visit your own blogs!

Well, I'm off to do some blog hopping! *hops away*

  2. That's one cute bird!
    My non-human family is my Brother-Dog Rocco, he's a Labrador/German Shepard mix.

    I'm a bit like you, within the parameters of YA and Romance, I read pretty much everything

  4. Ah, what a wondeful bird. My grammy wants one...

    I have 4 cats who would eat said bird if I got it, 2 fiddler crabs, and a HUGE fish tank.

    Today I posted a review of a grand Steampunkery Book!  Please do check it out, I highly recommend Vampire Empire: The Greyfriar if you want Steampunkery and a mix of many genres.  A new favorite... indeed a huggable book!

  9. I definitely love YA because it lets go of all the "rules". You're so right - you can find a prince, a vampire, or discover you're a witch queen...way more fun than the grown-up stuff.

    Your bird is lovely.

  10. Here I am hopping on by...

    I went all over the map with this question on my blog. I read and enjoy almost every genre of fiction out there. There’s no way I could just pick one.

    So I talked about all of them. Even romance fiction (sort of)! I invite you to hop over to my blog at http://www.howardsherman.net and see for yourself.

  16. I'm not fussy when it comes to YA either - I'll read dystopian, fantasy, and contemporary through to historical (and often combinations of genres, too!)

  17. hopping by :)

    I also love all of the possibilities of what can happen. I think that's why I like fantasy/paranormal so much.

  18. Visiting on the blog hop tour! I'm a new follower and I enjoy reading YA too, but I'll try pretty much anything unless it is really frightening or has a lot of erotica. Yeah, too old for that I guess. Anyway...come visit if you get the chance: http://bookendcrossing.blogspot.com/2011/01/book-blogger-hop-tour-1-14-to-1-17-2011.html

    Have a great weekend!

  19. Hopping through. So cool that you have a bird. I always thought it would be funny to get a bird and teach it to say swear words or sing It's a Small World...but I'm sure I'd regret it. :-)
