Follow Friday! (and) TGIF! Yeah!!!

Thanks to two lovely blogs for hosting the Friday Fun this week:  Parajunkee's View, and Alison Can Read.  Here's the question:

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?

I guess I'd like to know I have a guardian angel. Or, maybe ghosts -- if they were my ancestors or something. I've not really thought much about this one, even though I read a lot of paranormal. I think I'll go with angels (only good ones, though -- I don't want to know about those bad ones!)

Ginger at GReads! has an interesting question this week:

Book Associations: Which genre, authors, or particular books do you think people associate with your reading style?

Wow. I'm not sure. I'm going to do genres because those other things don't make sense to me.  I think it's pretty obvious that "YA" would be one label I would get (I know, that's not a genre.) I've said very often that "Historical Fiction" is my favorite, but I really am a very "Eclectic" reader -- I read almost everything, except not many non-fiction, and not many short stories. I would NOT call myself a high fantasy reader, either, but I've certainly read plenty of those. Maybe "Old" is appropriate. I'm an "Old Reader" with many years of reading under my belt. But, I think I like "Eclectic" better! Wouldn't you like to know how many books you've read in your entire life? That would be interesting. 

Looking forward to visiting some of your posts and seeing how YOU answered these....Thanks for stopping by; the door is always open. Please come back soon!

  1. I like the idea of dead ancestors, but I wonder if they would get onto you like grandparents. You know pop up all ghostly while your watching TV and ask why you haven't called etc.. That would be cool, but I got a feeling it wouldn't be as cool as I think.

  2. A guardian Angel would be awesome! Hi! Following you from the Feature & Follow Friday Book Blog Hop. Would love a follow back on my blog: Nice to meet you.

  4. Oh, no way! I wouldn't want to make contact with any ghosts. Not even my ancestors. Actually - let's say, especially not my ancestors!

    I'm waiting for mermaids to reveal themselves. The ocean is so big, I can almost believe that they've managed to be recluses for this long.

  5. I think none of us want the "bad" ones out of the "creatures" we chose!

    Have a good weekend!

  6. No way could I pick one genre. Also a very eclectic reader!

    Yes, I would love to know how many books I've read over my lifetime. Actually, I'd love to see a chart year by year (but that's the spreadsheet nerd in me coming out...)

    Have a great weekend!

  7. Guardian angels would be so cool.

    Check out OUR FF!

    Also check out the great giveways we have going on!

  8. Angels would be cool. I do believe they exist, just not in the way fiction portrays them.

  9. Hi, I'm stopping by on the Follow Train! I like your answer of angels; it's very different from all the vampire/werewolf answers I've been seeing.

  10. Thanks for linking me back to your review of Blink and Caution. I will be starting it this week as soon as I finished Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen.

    Now I am looking forward to it with more anticipation. I am considering it for my Mock Printz Workship selections.

    My Head is Full of Books

  11. In answer to the TGIF question - I'm a bit of everything YA, to be honest. I used to be straight paranormal and such, but now I've found myself enjoying contemps and issue books immensely.

  12. Hopping through. I'd love to have an ancestor as a guardian angel or ghost. It'd be cool to talk to them.
