Follow Friday and Book Blogger Hop #7

It's Friday again! That means all of the following fun! Here's to hoping I'm not too loopy to answer like a normal person. :)

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee each week and is a joint effort between all of us bloggers to get more followers. Plus, each week a different question is asked, and I get to answer it! So here goes:

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?
Me. Well, this may not be the smartest answer, but I don't care. I've always loved faeries, not like Tinkerbell, but the fey. I think they'd be fun, and maybe us knowing they exist would help them not bother as much as they allegedly do!

Book Blogger Hop is a weekly par-tay for book bloggers to connect! It's hosted by Crazy for Books (follow that link to get to this week's Blogger Hop post!) and lasts Friday through Monday every week! And we get another exciting question, here goes:

Book Blogger Hop

Q. Non-book related this week! Do you have pets?
ME. Indeed! First, I have the cutest cat in the whole world. And no one can argue with me on that point. He's orange and cuddly, and his name is Emeril. Yes, like the chef. I also have a fat, lazy dachshund named Greta, who sleeps day in and day out. 

Just to let everybody know, once I reach 100 followers (YES, I'M ALMOST THERE!) I will be hosting a decently big giveaway, so keep your eyes open! I will have both US and international prizes, too! :)

As always, I want to see y'all's hops, so post 'em here! :) Have a lovely weekend all!


  1. Hi Rachel! New follower - #95! I'm sure by the end of the hop tomorrow, you'll have well over 100 followers. I'm trying to reach 200 right now so I can host a giveaway, too - my first! And yay for international, as a Canadian, I always appreciate the international giveaways! Anyway, I chose faeries too...and like you said, not the Tink kind (although I do love Tink), but the actual fae. Happy Friday!

    Here's my Friday Fun post:

  2. Follower number 96, you're almost there! I also picked the fey. I wasn't really thinking about the tinkerbell kind either until Lari's post showed me the benefits of having those kind of faeries around too! I'm happy to be a new follower and I look forward to enjoying your reviews!

  3. I like the fae too... Also I think Pixies (like from the Hollow Series by Kim Harrison) would be pretty neat!

  4. Hopping through. I'd love non-evil fairies to exist (or snotty ones like Tinkerbell). They're so pretty.

  5. Hi there, new follower (and obviously, fan of fairies).

  6. Hi there. Thanks for stopping by. We are both on the same boat with picking faeries. It would be awesome if they were real. =)

  8. Hi! Happy Friday! Fairies are pretty cool, but I wouldn't want them to be the creepy trickster ones. Or the changelings! Those are sooo weiird!!

    My FF Here:

  9. yay congrats on the almost 100 followers :D I hope that i can get up to 150 in a couple weeks!! I think Fey would be scary, but fun lol, nothing wrong with picking them for your choice haha should check out mine :D

  10. Hi! new blog/twitter follower!!! (#100 WOO HOO CONFETTI!!!) I love your blog name!!!--super cute!!!

    Hope you have a great weekend!!! :)

    Cana (Giveaway going on!!!)

  12. Hi, I'm a new follower! Great answer. Please visit my blog and follow :)

    Happy Friday :)

  13. Hi, new follower here for the hop. Congrats, I see you made it past a 100 followers! Like you I like the fey, but they can be a little scary (except for Ash!)

  14. I can never resist an orange cat.... but I share my house with 4 bunnies (so no cats allowed). :)

    Happy Hopping!!!

  15. Hi! I absolutely adore the fey! It was a tie for me between them and vampires. I picked vamps in the end but ideally if vampires are "coming out" then Fey are too (as well as everything else, I'm greedy like that ha!)

    New Follower. Glad to found your blog :-)

  16. oh goodie for the giveaway, i am a new follower. I have a cat and dog too ;)

  17. New follower (also friend-requested you on GoodReads, too)

    Have a great weekend!


  18. Fae would be interesting. Hopefully, they wouldn't be too troublesome.


    I have NO pets.

    Stop by my blog this weekend for book giveaways and 99 cent E-books...the posts are actually up right now.

    There will be two different posts from two different authors for the giveaways and E-books.


  20. I would love to have a cat! I'm jealous! Here's my hop.

  21. Just dropping by for the blog hop. Do your dog and cat get along well? My cats do not like doggies!

    My hop:
