Q: In books like the Sookie Stackhouse (True Blood) series the paranormal creature in question "comes out of the closet" and makes itself known to the world. Which mythical creature do you wish would come out of the closet, for real?

A: I WOULD say Vampires - if I could have a "don't kill me clause". But with my luck - I'd be the first one dead on the DAY of the announcement of Vampires "coming out of the closet".  
So I think I'd want some safe mythical creature -- like a a from a children's book (not like a fairy from the Sookie books). Or...wait...Unicorns. Even better! Much Safer! I'm going to go with that :)

Q: Non-book-related this week!  Do you have pets?

Yes!  I have a cat - Stitch. He's like 10+ years old and is just slightly overweight/big-boned.  I also have 2 red-eared sliders (turtles) that I got on a trip to Florida a few years ago AND we have a 2 year-old German Shepherd named Sammie.

Q: Book Associations: which genre, authors, or particular books do you think people associate with your reading style?

I don't think any of my friends would associate me with a particular genre, authors or particular book style. I'm just known as a "reader". I don't think I even associate myself with a particular genre/author (although, recently, I'm being more & more of a YA reader).



  1. LOL! Hi! Following you from the Feature & Follow Friday Book Blog Hop. Would love a follow back on my blog: Nice to meet you. I also have a call for blogger participation for an upcoming giveaway if you're interested. :)

  2. Haha, I chose unicorns too! There's no good uni-fiction out there! Protestttttt!

  3. Aww cute dog and cat!

    Unicorns wouldn't be too bad to have come out of the closet! Actually saw this answer 3x already!! And again I'll say that as long as they don't raid my underwear drawer like Phin from Allison Pang's A Brush of Darkness does, I'd have no problem with them coming out of the closet!

    Thanks for visiting my blog!

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  4. OMIGOD I love your cat...he looks like he's dead! lol... And I definitely love the unicorn choice :) I'm a new follower just hopping through! If you have a chance you could check me out on my site!

  5. Unicorns are great! It's an option for me too! But not the unicorns in Rampant (have you read it?) Bdw Here's mine.

    New follower,

  6. Oh, we have a 5-year old German Shepherd. Love those dogs. Sammie is very cute! And, you are the second person I've seen who said unicorns! I too, want something nice -- nothing nasty. I'd rather not know about those creatures!

  7. Hopping by from the Hop! I love your cat! SO cute and slightly overweight! :) haha.

    My Hop is here!

  8. Oooohh! Unicorns would be awesome to see around on a daily basis! :)

    Have a great weekend!

  9. Oh my gosh...I did not think that anyone could be bigger than my Milo but your Stitch has him beat!!

  17. Hahha, the vamps should come with a clause that they are not permitted to eat us! Great answer ;)

    New follower :)

  18. Your cat is so fat it's amazing!!!!

    new follower! :)

  19. Unicorns! What an awesome idea. And that pictured of your pets, so precious! I love Stitch, I'm sure he's great for cuddling!

  20. Hmm, I never thought of unicorns. That would be cool. I definitely classify myself as a YA reader as well.

  21. Unicorns! I didn't even think of them!!

  22. New follower. Love your picture of your pets! The cat is precious!

  23. Hopping through. Harmless paranormal creatures are important. I'd take a unicorn.

  24. Hopping through! Thanks for stopping by my blog. To answer your question: a Nephilim is half angel and half human. They're what the shadowhunters are in The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare, but they're in other books, as well.
