Book Blogger Hop and Follow Friday 8/26

This fun, weekly meme is hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.

This week:

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?

A. Shapeshifters. It would make a lot of sense to find out that some people can shift into certain animals. How many times in your life have you described somebody by their animal-like features or tendencies? I'm not the only one to nickname their neighbors in this way, right? For example, I live near Fish-guy and Wolf-man, and that's just naming a few ;-)

This fun meme is hosted at Crazy For Books. Check it out and join in!

“Non-book-related this week!! Do you have pets?”

Answer: I always thought I would have a dog once I was married and had kids. Then I actually had the kids....and after 4 1/2 years of changing one or two kids' diapers at a time, I decided that pets could wait until everybody could take care of their own hind ends :-) We're getting closer. Just one more to go, haha!

What about you??

Hopping through. I like shapeshifters too. I haven't read a lot of shifter books though. I love Mistwood by Leah Cypess.

Ha, love it! I've heard husbands be compared to kids several times, and it's true; the men/kids want the pets and then the wife/mother ends up taking care of them! Put off getting one as long as possible.

ha! when you started naming fish-guy and wolf-man, foxface from the hunger games popped in my head. i think that proves your point.

Happy Friday!

There have been some people I've met over the years that could totally be shape shifters. I wouldn't be surprised if some werewolves went to my high school! ;)
