1. Enter your book blog link in the Linky List below (be sure to include how long you've been blogging and what genres you review!). If you post about the Hop on your blog, please link directly to your Hop post (don't forget to answer this week's question - see below!).
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!):

As a book blogger, how do you introduce yourself in your profile?

MY ANSWER: I go on about saying how I love books--bibliophile! And I mention my tastes in reading which are mostly urban fantasy type books, but I do include the few "classics" that I enjoyed. I also mention a little about my personal life, like how I have my BA in English and am still looking for a job, sucks being unemployed, makes book buying tough! I also mention that I am querying for an agent for my finished manuscript.

This is a weekly blog meme hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read.

This week's question is: It's that pesky magic book fairy again! She has another wish: What imaginary book world would you like to make a reality?

MY ANSWER: Hmm, this seems a tad familiar, and I honestly don't know. Harry Potter would be cool, of course there's a theme park in Orlando that I still have to go to, to experience Harry's world!!

I read a lot of urban fantasy and I get sucked into all their worlds, worlds that are still a little familiar but have vampires, werewolves, shifters, demons, fae and all other sorts of creatures living among us. They all become really cool! Almost any urban fantasy world would be awesome to live in. Of course I would want to be involved with the supernatural crowd, maybe even find me a nice shifter boyfriend...or vampire...or werewolf...or demon...or fae...the list can go on and on really!!


  1. Thanks for stopping by :-)
    I just picked what came to mind first.
    I, too, love PNR. I hear you! Would also want to hang with a supernatural crowd. Demons, vampires & Co. Heck yeah!
    Happy Follow Friday :-)

  4. hmm, I've never really thought about which fantasy world I'd like to see real, probably Tamora Pierce's Tortall

  5. Hi there, old follower here! :)

    Great answer by the way - being in world where there are a plethora of supernaturals would be an awesome good time.

    Here's mine:

  12. Being a bibliophile is one of the most awesome things! :) I think it's good to share just enough within your profile to help show what you're interested in and what interests your readers might share with you. I love reading urban fantasy, too, and also Awake at Dawn CANNOT be released soon enough! Great answer, and I hope you have a great weekend!
