Book Blogger Hop & Follow Friday 12

A little video I made from my hotel room on Wednesday. I've been in NYC for the week on business, but don't you worry--my knee has healed for the most part and I've had plenty of time for fancy dinners and Broadway shows. New York and I have had a complicated love affair since I first lived here at age 21. It's like an old boyfriend I don't want to spend all my time with but can't help checking up on now and then. Sigh!

Well, it's Friday, which means it's time for Book Blogger Hop and Follow Friday.

Book Blogger Hop

This week’s Hop question is: Why do you read the genre that you do? What draws you to it?

This is a very complicated question, which I—quite luckily—tackled last month on the blog. Check out my thoughts on why I read YA as an adult, and peek at the comments for a very interesting discussion.

And, Follow Friday is asking: What makes up your non-human family?

Ugh, a controversial topic, as the husband and I have recently realized we're allergic to every pet ever. Which complicates matters. However, thanks to the wonders of over-the-counter drugs, I can still comfortably enjoy the company of my two "brothers," my parents' cats, Oscar and Oliver.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Oh, and excellent b-roll cutaway. ;)

  2. Hopping by to say Hello! I'm also a YA fan and love the genre! You can find me blogging here:

  3. I read more than one genre. But there are a few genres I don't read. Come see what I do and don't read.

  4. I once again prove how much of a flake I am. See, I knew you were in NYC, I knew you had busted your knee and I knew you were right near Times Square. BUT HOW DID YOU BUST YOUR KNEE?? was it scandalous?

    And it truly does suck that this happened :( I LOVE YOU ANNA MY LITTLE BOOK SOULMATE.

    I went all over the map with this question on my blog. I read and enjoy almost every genre of fiction out there. There’s no way I could just pick one.

    So I talked about all of them. Even romance fiction (sort of)! I invite you to hop over to my blog at and see for yourself.
