Follow My Blog #15

If you are new to the FF fun, Feature & Follow Friday is a blog hop that expands your blog following by a joint effort between bloggers. Feature & Follow Friday is now hosted by TWO hosts, myself of course and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it'll allow us to show off more new blogs!

How does this work? First you leave your name here on this post, then you create a post on your own blog that links back to this post (easiest way is to just grab the code under the #FF picture and put it in your post) and then you visit as many blogs as you can and tell them "hi" in their comments (on the post that has the #FF image). You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you!

Now to make this #FF interesting we do a FEATURE blogger. If you are interested in becoming a Feature click on the drop down link above FEATURES > Feature & Follow Friday and get on the waiting list!  It is also required, that if you participate you must follow the hosts (Parajunkee & Alison Can Read) and the two Feature blogs.

This Meme is hosted by Rachel from Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read on Fridays.

Caught in the Pages

I have always loved reading, even when I was little. I was the type who would be reading more than one book at a time, all the time, couldn't get my nose out of a book for anything. After growing up, life (aka husband, job, had a baby) caught up with me some and I just didn't read like I used to. I discovered other book blogs by chance and fell in love with the idea of sharing something I love with the world. I started my blog hoping that if nothing else, I would be motivated to keep reading and reading other blogs would help me to discover great new books.
I am constantly bugging my husband about books and even convinced him to buy me one instead of going to see Transformers 3 (I think I have an addiction).  I am either reading a book, reading about books, or lusting after books.  I also dream of owning a Kindle.  I love anything involving love (yep, just full of love here).  I put the smell of a book up there with the smell of fresh bread and the smell of coffee brewing (don't think I am weird).

I started blogging four years ago because I wanted to talk about my life and interests. I did that for about three years. Then, about a year ago, I transformed my blog into a book blog because I was posting mostly about books anyway (reviews, author parties, book releases, etc.). I love gushing about my favorite books and sharing them with others. I read mostly YA, but I'll usually try anything as long as it sounds interesting. My favorite books are the Harry Potter series, the Twilight Saga, the Mortal Instruments series, The Hunger Games trilogy, Anna and the French Kiss, Clockwork Angel, Graceling, Fire, Shiver, The Dark Divine, The Lost Saint, Dune, You Are Special, and Fox in Socks.

I also enjoy writing, listening to music, watching movies and TV, going to school, playing any type of game (especially anything related to Zelda and Mario), aimlessly surfing the Internet, crocheting, knitting, playing the piano, learning and speaking foreign languages, doing origami, and hanging out with my family, cats, and friends.

Q. In some books like the Sookie Stackhouse series the paranormal creature in question "comes out of the closet" and makes itself known to the world. Which mythical creature do you wish this would happen with in real life?

Since I only read cozies, mystery thrillers and romantic suspense I haven't come across any mythical creatures, sorry!


  1. Once I discovered paranormal romances, I never looked back... But I love all genres of romance. :-)

  3. Hopping through. I should read cozies some day. I'm not a big mystery person but I think I'd get a kick out of cozies.
