Happy Follow Friday and Blog Hop

Friday is one of my favorite days of the week! Oh, yea, it's the last work day, but also it's time to find some new book blogs! Thanks for stopping by, and thanks to Parajunkee for featuring my blog this week for Follow Friday!
This week's question is:  What makes up you non-human family?
  I love this question because my dog is really a member of my family. I have a German Shepherd named Mollie.  She's four years old, and spoiled rotten!


And for the Book Blogger Hop, over at Crazy-For-Books, the question is:

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

I read all kinds of YA novels. I think it's because I work with teens everyday, and it keeps me young. They are usually easy, action-packed books, and I like that.  My favorite genre is Historical Fiction, which is really strange, because I hated history in school.  But, a fictional story about historical events is very different.  It gets me every time!

Thanks for stopping by.  I'm looking forward to doing some visiting myself (probably have to wait until after work, though!)

  4. I read YA and MG because I'm honing my skill at writing my own stories in those genres, but I also find them extremely entertaining. However I also read adults paranormal romance and contemporary fiction.

  5. Aw, what a sweet dog :) I think reading YA is good for teachers to have a connection with students. I teach mostly younger grades so I stick with children's books & short novels. Old follower hopping by :) Here's my post.

  7. I discovered you from PJs FF and that is a very sweet puppy. I love her name too. I like what your site has to offer and am now a follower. I'd love it if you'd visit and hopefully follow me back.

  8. Cute puppy. :) My non-human family consists of two cats and two turtles:
    Echo is a female long-haired tuxedo cat, who is sweet and crazy and a touch on the dumb side.
    Ryo-ohki is a female long-haired mostly-black cat, who is terribly antisocial and grouchy but I love her.
    Milo is a female red-eared slider (aquatic turtles) who is going to storm Tokyo one day.
    Crush is an antisocial spiny softshell turtle of uncertain gender. (The other turtle in that photo is Matey, now deceased.)

  12. Hi! I'm a new follower. Mollie is a beautiful dog. I've never owned a dog, but if I were ever to get one, it would be a German Shepard.

  13. Following from FF; Mollie is gorgeous! My dad would get a German Shepherd in a heartbeat but we don't have the room plus my cat wouldn't be very happy :P

  14. Hey congratulations for being selected for Follow Friday. I have never actually done the follow part of follow Friday until today because I only want to follow blogs that I think will be of value to me and I found it in your blog, So now I am you newest follower. I, too, am a high school librarian. I blog about issues related to teen literacy, YA book reviews, and a few of those blog hop things now and then.
    Have a good week-end.

  15. 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 http://www.howardsherman.net and see for yourself.

  20. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I love historical fiction! Of all kinds! I had a German Shepherd when I was little... "Lady"....loved her so much!

  21. Visiting from the blog hop tour and I'm a new follower. I enjoy YA fantasy, too. I work with young people in my music ministry at Church and my youngest daughter is 19, so maybe that's why I enjoy YA. I also enjoy historical fiction. I guess it's being drawn in to a different world that attracts me to all those genres.

    If you get the chance, come visit my blog. It seems as though we have a lot in common: http://bookendcrossing.blogspot.com/2011/01/book-blogger-hop-tour-1-14-to-1-17-2011.html

    Have a great weekend!
