Follow My Book Blog Friday

You know the drill…. Follow My Book Blog Friday hosted by the very awesome Parajunkee!

Q. Genre Wars! What’s your favorite genre and which book in that genre made it your favorite?

Hmmm…. This is a tough one for me. I love all things YA, especially those with a paranormal slant, but I think my current favorite has to be dystopian. The Hunger Games opened up this genre for me and while I find there are often a few heart-wrenching moments (yes, I actually cry over the plights of fictional characters), I enjoy the stories and the fact that they make me think a little more than say, my favorite paranormal romances.

Q. The magic book fairy pops out of your cereal box and says “you and your favorite character (from a book of course) can switch places!” Who are you going to switch with?

A. Okay, so this feels like cheating a little because while this character is in books, she debuted on the silver screen. Still, given the chance I’d swap with Buffy in a heartbeat. Grocery buyer and avid reader (me) or kick ass vampire slayer with a quick wit and super strength (Buffy)? Yep. I’ll take leather pants and a stake any day. Saving the world doesn’t sound half bad either.

Q: How many books do you read in a week? And in what format do you read them, or listen to them?

 
Lately it seems I am only getting in one book a week. The good news is that with so many great blogger reviews I’m at least managing to make the most of my reads! Happiness! Since this is a holiday weekend I’ll get some extra reading time… on my iPhone.
It seems this is the most common place for me to read anymore. It definitely has its drawbacks, but when I’m dashing through the airport (because I’m always late) my Kindle is just one more thing to carry. I do my best to be a conscientious traveler (IE- not the girl who holds up security or argues about carrying on a giant bottle of shampoo) and this is just another way for me to travel light and still get in a good read!

Now for the Follow Fun!
 
For those of you who’ve been reading my blog, this is my first Follow Friday. This segment will be a regular Friday post courtesy of one of my own favorite blogs, Parajunkee’s View. Each week PJ posts a question which I’ll repost and answer. Feel free to repost or just comment below!

Q. Circle time! Time to share. What character in a book would you most like to be, what character in a book would you most like to date?

A. This is an easy one! Since today’s Friday and it’s been a long week I can easily say I’d like to be Jolie Wilkins from Toil and Trouble. Yeah, she could be a little tougher, but right now Queen of the Underworld sounds glorious! As for the character I’d most like to date? Rourke from J.D. Robb’s Fantasy series. Sexy, powerful, and dangerous. What more could a girl want? (Other than a wonderful husband who cooks dinner, which I already have!)
