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. Who is your favorite romance book couple?
A. Off the top of my head, I'd have to go with Matt and Vic (The Powers of Love), Celeste and Jacques/Armand (Celeste Nites), Val and Irulan (Darklife Saga), Jaenelle and Daemon (Black Jewels), and while not necessarily romance, I have to give a huge shout-out to Richard and Kahlan (Sword of Truth).

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

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

A. Yes, two adorable dogs - a plump little Jack Russell Terrier that rules the house, and a Shepherd/Lab mix that still thinks she's a puppy . . . a 50 pound puppy!

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?

My Little Pony Basic Rarity the UnicornA. It's a toss-up between unicorns and faeries, but I'm going to have to go with unicorns. I've been obsessed with them since I was a small child, and I am absolutely compulsive about collecting unicorn figures and toys - when My Little Pony came out with unicorns, my MasterCard nearly snapped in two from overuse!

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!


  1. Hate to say it but I'm not the unicorns or fairy type. Vampires, angels, demons all the way! My pick...come find out:

  3. My Little Pony was one of my favorite cartoons when I was little. Love them. I think it would be awesome if Unicorn's were real.

    I feel these lists always skew towards male driven swords and sorcery.
