Follow Friday (13) Blog Hop (12)

"Why do you read the genre that you do?  What draws you to it?""Why do you read the genre that you do?  What draws you to it?"
 I usually read paranormal books like Vampires, witches, and other PNs. I have to say I didn't start off reading those kind though. When I first started buying my books I leaned more toward the Mystery/thrillers from authors like Mary Higgins Clark, Stephen King because let's face it tryin to figure out the who dun it? is part of the fun of reading the books. Then once I read the twilight books thats when my fascination with all things paranormal came about. I love being able to escape to worlds that aren't real, and to fall into a characters life, and pretend for a bit that maybe somewhere in the world there are these type things going on. (even though I know there aren't) I'm trying to get myself out of reading just one genre though. Now I'm trying the contemporary stuff, and so far I like the ones I've read. Knowing that somewhere out there this has probably happened to someone, and to be able to get inside those characters heads to know the feeling it's refreshing. (even if it isn't something that's fun for the character)

What makes up your non-human family??Below are the ones that make up my family. Although my Doxie recently passed away. My post of that here (I love you Toby.) I had him almost 5 years I would say. He meant the world to me. Hermione my kitty I got from a co-worker I've had her almost 7 years. (I didn't name her, and I rarely call her by it, but I love it just the same)

My Toby. Passed away a few days before christmas 2010.

  4. Fantastic answer, I have to say Twilight was probably my first real foray into the paranormal books as well and since then I've been hooked! Toby was adorable, so sorry you lost him:(

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

  10. I'm so sorry about your loss. :( I don't know what I would do if I lost my best non-human companion. Was Hermione named after the character in Harry Potter?
