Blog Hop & Follow Friday

Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Crazy-for-Books and is an awesome way for book bloggers to interact and find each other. Such a wonderful idea! There’s a new questions every week that all the participating blogs have to answer. This week’s question is “Why do you read the genre that you do? What draws you to it?”

Answer: Well, I’m drawn to different genres for different reasons. I tend to read a whole lot of YA books because I’m a young adult. Though I not a teenager anymore, I can relate more to a teen than I can to a middle-aged person. I enjoy fantasy books because sometimes it’s refreshing to escape to a world that is full of the impossible and in no way resembles the one I live in every day. I enjoy manga because I like the art and I think it’s precious. I like some historical fiction and classics from the Victorian period because I love to read about society in that time. I just find it fascinating. I love that something as simple as hand holding can be so improper and intimate.

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee. This is another meme that helps book bloggers connect. This week’s featured blog is The More You Read, The More You Will Know.

“What makes up your non-human family?”

Answer: Our cat Reese. She’s really pretty. She’s also really spoiled. She always has a bowl full of dry food, but she eats wet food every morning and she gets impatient if her breakfast is late. She loves to sit at the table in the sun room and look out the window. She also loves to sharpen her claws on absolutely everything she can. She spends her evenings curled on my mother’s bed. The only decent picture I have is from when she was a kitten, but she still looks like this… just older.

PS – I’m going to be in Atlanta visiting my boyfriend for his birthday so I’m not going to announce the giveaway winner until Sunday afternoon. That means you still have some time to enter. I’ll give it until 12:00 PM (Central) Sunday. That also means I’m not going to be posting any reviews until Sunday. See you then!

Happy Friday!

  1. New follower stopping by! :)"I love that something as simple as hand holding can be so improper and intimate."I don't read as much historical fiction as I would like to, but that type of situation came up in Cassandra Clare's "Clockwork Angel" and I.loved.it. Definitely a motivation to look into more in the historical fiction genre. ;)Your cast is so gorgeous! I love her coloring!Stephanie @ Poetry to Prose

  4. Good response! I agree that the standards of propriety make reading books in the Victorian/Regency era a great escape from the modern world. Love it.

  10. Your reasons are part of mine as to why I love historical fiction. Many things that were so improper then are more than mainstream now. Sometimes when reading a HF book, I have to remind myself of that! Enjoy your weekend and Happy Birthday to your boyfriend!Kat @ A Journey in Reading
