Here are the rules:

2. Visit other blogs in the Linky List! Make new friends! Follow new book bloggers! Talk about books! Rave about authors! (Please do not leave your link and not visit other blogs - it's just not cool and not in the spirit of the Hop!)
3. Post about the Hop on your blog! Spread the word about the book party! The more the merrier!
4. In your blog post, answer the following question (new question each week!):
Many of us primarily read one genre of books, with others sprinkled in. If authors stopped writing that genre, what genre would you start reading? Or would you give up reading completely if you couldn’t read that genre anymore?
MY ANSWER: Wow, that's a loaded question! I read mostly urban fantasy and I have a ton of fave authors! A good portion writes both adult and YA so my TBR pile is out of whack! If the world were to go insane or whatever and ALL my fave authors stopped writing and the urban fantasy genre as well as all other paranormal related genres disappeared, I probably would stop reading so much. Scary huh? I wouldn't stop writing my own work though, and try to get it published to help the other UF addicts out there who need their fix--hell I'm trying to do that anyway!
But yes, in the long haul, if urban fantasy disappeared from the bookshelves I would likely no longer be a reader. I need my paranormal. So I would just have to reread my entire collection all over again!

This week's question is: Have you ever wanted a villain to win at the end of a story? If so, which one??
MY ANSWER: Uh...none that I can think of right away. I have a killer headache and cold this morning--which I'm doing everything to fight because there's an author signing tonight I HAVE to go to. But let me mull over it...
I really can't think of one. A sort of example was Aubrey's character in Amelia Atwater-Rhodes' In the Forests of the Night and Demon in my View. He was the villain in ITFOTN, and come DIMV he was more hero, yet not totally the white cape or however the expression goes! He was still villain-esque, but had a more endearing side to him.
