Book Blogger Hop: August 26th-29th & FF (32) & TGIF (15)

Book Blogger Hop 
 Blogger Hop is hosted by Crazy-for-Books and is an awesome way to for book bloggers to interact and find each other. Such a wonderful idea! There's a new question every week that all the participating blogs have to answer.

This week's question is:

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

My Answer: I do indeed - I have four gorgeous cats.
This is Tasha - she is nearly 10 years old, and is the softest cuddliest cat of the four. She purrs like mad and loves being petted, she will lick you and fall asleep on your lap no problem. She is also quite lazy and loves nothing more than to sleep. Hence she is slightly fat.

 Then it's Max - he is about 9 years old. He can be a real softy when he wants to, he also gets jealous - if he sees you making a fuss of the other cats he will come up and nag for some too.
He can be a bit grumpy when it comes to the younger cats but he's lovely really.
He has odd eyes too - one is blue and the other is green.
He gets on really well with Tasha.

This is Henry - 'Horrid Henry' nicknamed.
He is 100% my baby - he will cuddle and purr and be really affectionate with me but he doesn't take too kindly to anyone else - unless they have food!
He is so fluffy and cuddly I could hug him all day.
He mainly comes home for food then disappears again, but will have his hug moods when he gets really affectionate. He gets on really well with Chrissie but not the other two as much

 Then last but not least we have 'Christmas' we got her on Christmas Eve so the name stuck but we call her Chrissie for short or her other nickname is 'Pixie'
She is still really small and runs like lightning, she can jump like a Kangaroo and is always causing trouble but she is so cute!
She adores Max but doesn't get the response she wants from him. 
She has adopted Henry as her big brother and dotes on him.

That was probably more information than you wanted but I couldn't resist showing off my baby's. :D

This week's question feature is from
Caught in the Pages

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?

My Answer: I always wanted to meet a Unicorn - they always seem so magical and gentle and breath-taking. Can you imagine befriending a unicorn? How awesome that would be!!!

I've always loved dragon's too - but it would have to be one of the good - friendly ones. :D

This Friday's Question:
Book Associations: 
Which genre, authors, or particular books do you think 
people associate with your reading style?

My Answer: I mainly read Paranormal/Fantasy or Contemporary. I shamelessly promote loads of authors and those are the ones I mainly go for. And mostly in YA. Most of the books people save me at the library are paranormal - will have a werewolf, vampire, dragon etc on the front. I think it's quite easy to pick up what I like, and there is never a shortage. :D


Happy Hopping, have a great weekend everyone!!!

I really like your cats! Max reminds me of my family's cat, Victor.

I know what you mean about not being able to resist showing off. It doesn't take much to get me to gush about my dog, Roland. I was thrilled to be able to share a bit about him for this week's Blogger Hop!
