Blogger Book Tag

(Image from Offbeat Earth)

So I volunteered to be tagged by Jennifer over at Some Like It Paranormal to help her reach her 30 people she needs to tag, and now I've got 10 questions to answer for her.  It's always fun seeing what answers people come up with and also what questions they have to make up on the spur of the moment.  On to the questions!

1. I like it paranormal! lol So tell me your favorite paranormal creature?

Hands, or rather paws down, werewolves.  I just can't get enough of the big, furry brutes.  Out of the 70 or so books on my physical TBR shelf, I believe 1/3 (or more) feature werewolves. lol 

2. Favorite books? I'm horrible with boundaries so feel free to list as many or few as you want!

Oh, boy, you asked for it (in no particular order): Raised by Wolves, The Scorpio Races, Shiver, Dash & Lily's Book of Dares, Born at Midnight, Shattered Souls, Watership Down, Memoirs of a Geisha, The Last Unicorn.  And that's just for starters, but the post would be longer than necessary.

3. What book did you just finish reading?

Shattered Souls by Mary Lindsey, a great paranormal read that takes place in my hometown. ^_^

4. Favorite book boyfriends?

Sam Roth (Wolves of Mercy Falls), Damon (Raised by Wolves), Riley (Intertwined), Sean Kirkpatrick (The Scorpio Races), Alden Thomas (Shattered Souls), Lucas (Shadow Falls)

5. What book was the hardest for you to review and why?

I think it was The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter and mostly because I know I liked the book, but I didn't feel that "holy schnikies, this is such a great book I have to tell everyone" feeling I've had with other books. It was actually my first Good, But Wanted More review.

6. What books have made you cry?

Shiver definitely made me cry because I know how hard it can be to be together with the one you love.

7. What are your favorite parts of blogging?

Meeting fellow bloggers is one of the best parts of blogging, and luckily I live in a state where the blogging community is HUGE and supportive. ^_^ I also love the chance to meet authors and express my appreciation for their hard work... sometimes in the form of baked goods. And I just love talking about books with other bibliophiles (which sounds wrong, but I love that word).

8. The best book you have read that not many other people have read or heard of?

This one is a bit tough because while I don't always read the spotlight titles, the books I do read are usually pretty well-known. I'd have to say it's a toss-up between The Princess's Dragon by Susan Trombley and Ada: Legend of a Healer by R.A. McDonald. I thoroughly enjoyed both books, but neither title seems to have been reviewed or talked about on other blogs.

9. Where do most want to travel to?

Japan (I've loved Japanese culture and art ever since I started enjoying manga and anime.) and Germany (Although I've already been to Germany, I'm hoping to go again soon to meet some really special people. Namely the future in-laws. ^_^)

10. Do you have any pets?

Sadly, no, but I hope to have a cat one day and a Tamaskan dog (you'll see why I want this breed when you click the link). And hopefully some horses, too.


1. You must post the rules.
2. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post and then create ten new questions to ask the people that you have tagged.
3. Tag eleven people and link to them on your post.
4. Let them know you’ve tagged them.

2. Where do you love to read the most?
3. What book could you read over and over without getting tired of it?
4. What are your thoughts on graphic novels? Love 'em, don't love 'em?
5. If you could see any book turned into a film (directly from page to "stage") which book would it be?
6. What do you love most about blogging? (I know, Jennifer asked that, but I'd like to know, too!)
