Hops, Follows, and Tag Alongs, Oh My!

The 18 & Over Book Blogger Follow is a weekly feature that begins on Fridays and runs through the weekend, hosted by Crystal from Reading Between the Wines and Kelly at Secrets of a Book Lover.


Q. Have you ever read a book that just had too much sex in it?

A. Is such a thing even possible? Seriously, I think authors today recognize the need to wrap their sex in a story, although I sometimes find there's too much vanilla sex . . . I do like it a little wild and kinky!

It's time for another Book Blogger Hop, courtesy of Crazy for Books!

Q. What’s the LONGEST book you’ve ever read?

A. I'd have to guess the expanded edition of Stephen King's The Stand or Tom Clancy's Executive Orders . . . both are in the 1200 page range, if I remember correctly.

Q. If you could write yourself a part in a book, what book would it be and what role would you play in that book?

A. I would write myself into Clive Barker's Imajica, as the androgynous, bisexual, shapeshifting assassin (redeemed, of course) Pie 'Oh' Pah. Pie is a mystif, a magical creature that is neither male nor female, but rather a projection of whatever his/her subject/target desires most when they are together. Clive has described Pie as "the emotional center of the book" and that's precisely what makes the role so appealing . . . the sense of magic, discovery, and redemption that drives the tale.

As always, I urge you to hop around to some new blogs, tag along with some new friends, and find some great new reviews to follow. I always find something new to delight me!

  5. Haven't read either THE STAND or EXECUTIVE ORDERS. That is why this blog hop is so great...we all get to learn of new books if we haven't heard of them or it gives us a little reminder nudge. :)

    NEW FOLLOWER.

  7. Most people would guess I’d write myself in the role of a hero in a fictional adventure of some kind. But that would be only partially correct. As is my norm, I throw a curve ball in my answer that makes perfect sense one you follow my logic. Follow me back to my blog at http://www.howardsherman.net and follow along the logic with me!

  9. My thoughts were about the same. A little kink is a lot of fun! Thanks for participating!

  10. I like a good balance, but I agree with you! Not afraid of some kink as long as there is a great story behind it.

  13. This comment is totally irrelevant, but Sally I just realized there's a bottle of OPI on your bookshelf and that gave me a warm & fuzzy because it's Sweet's favourite brand. Awwww....

    See? Totally irrelevant!

  15. LoL It is possible! I can't get enough of sex scenes but when there is no story behind it it can get to be too much. Though I will agree, the wilder the better!

    Thanks for participating in the 18 & Over Follow, hope you had a great weekend!
