Book Hop & Follow Friday (2)

Happy Friday! This week I'm participating in a few memes. Book Blogger Hop is hosted over at Crazy for Books. Follow My Book Blog Friday is hosted by Parajunkee's View.

Book Blogger Hop

Why do you read the genre that you do?  What draws you to it?

Hmm, there are several ways to answer this, since I read several genres. Honestly, I don't like to limit myself to anything particular. I'm an eclectic reader, and I'll enjoy practically anything if it's written well. Admittedly, a pretty cover is what will usually draw me in, but what seals the deal is the synopsis on the book jacket. If I get intrigued, even slightly, there's a good chance I'm going to try to read it at some point.

What makes up your non-human family?

Do you know how hard it is to get a picture with both of them standing still? I live with my darling 3-year-old Inde, a terrier/lab/pitt bull mutt. She is, literally, the sweetest dog ever. People who don't even like dogs like her. Her "brother" is my boyfriend's 2-year-old Border Collie mix, Orion. He's big and doofy, and has the most amazing eyes: one brown, and one icy blue. 

I couldn't live without my babies. <3 


  1. Those are some beautiful dogs you have. We have a mix that has some terrier/pit in her, she's the sweetest thing too - I just love muts like that.

    Happy Hop Day!

  2. Thank you! And yes, I've always thought mutts are the best. Both of them are shelter puppies too. ;D

    Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I read just about everything, as well. And I'm a sucker for lovely cover art. :) Cute dogs!!

  5. I am hopping by from Follow Friday. Cute puppies! I only have a fish right now. I’m following you and would love it if you follow me back! Brandi from Blkosiner’s Book Blog

  6. @Jo - Thank you!

    @Stephanie - Thanks! That was taken after a hard playtime, so those are their tired and hot faces. XD

    @brandleigh2003 - Aw, thanks! I miss having fish, actually. I just can't seem to find the time to keep them.

  7. Here I am hopping on by...

    I went all over the map with this question on my blog. I read and enjoy almost every genre of fiction out there. There’s no way I could just pick one.

    So I talked about all of them. Even romance fiction (sort of)! I invite you to hop over to my blog at and see for yourself.
