Follow Me Friday (#9)

It's time for the weekly book blogger hops again! A great opportunity to meet new bloggers and say hi to old.

Ok so this week I was so excited for tonight because I was supposed to be the featured blogger on Parajunkee's View's blogger hop!  I am not sure what happened.... :(  So hopefully I get things straightened out.  Good thing I didn't write a post about it!  It was such a let down to see a different blog there tonight!   Anyways....

Crazy For Books' Book Blogger Hop
Question this week:

“When did you realize reading was your passion and a truly important part of your life?”
Well I read all through middle school, mainly Fear Street Books. And then I never read in high school, too busy doing other things. Then when I got married in 2001 and moved to Alaska my husband had to leave for a few months for the military. I picked up a Stephen King book and loved it soooo much I have never stopped reading since.

Book Blogger Hop

Parajunkee's Follow My Book Blog Friday.


Question this week: In light of the Summer Solstice. Also known as Midsummer...let's talk about fairies. What is your favorite fairy tale or story that revolves around the fae?

Well I love love love fairies. In fact right now I am finishing up the newest Sookie Stackhouse book which has fairies in it. In fact, the new season preview of True Blood has the fairies in it... though I don't love the look of them. They are not like that in the books:

Personally I little pretty fairies but they are never like that in the books!!!


  1. I know! I always thought of fairie as cute, dainty little things like Tinker Bell, but YA books have totally changed that for me.

    Have a good weekend(:

  4. Hi, stopping by from the hop. Have a great weekend! :)

  5. The Sookie Stackhouse series sounds great.

    I'm an old follower btw and I'd love if you'd follow back.

  6. Reading is a good way to pass the time especially when one's loved ones are away.

    I realized how important books had become in my life in 1999. Come see what happened.

  7. Hopping by from the Hop!
    I also read Goosebumps growing up. I've been a love of Stephen King for so long though that it quickly replaced Goosebumps hehe.

    My Hop is here:

  8. Hopping by from FF. That's quite a downer. Hope you get it sorted out for next week with parajunkee.

    Nice answers.

  10. Hello all! Thanks for stopping by. For those who read my post and didn't just leave a generic message I am now the feature friday on July 15th. So hopefully it works out that day!

    @Katie I am already following you!

  11. Hi Angie! Thanks for hopping by... following back now. Lol. I also grew up reading RL Stine! Talk about a blast from the past when I saw the covers in your post. The only one I'm not sure I've read was The First Scream!

  12. I choose Thumbelina. Following Friday blog hop.
    Also following on GFC and NWB. Stop by my blog and follow however you like.

  13. Hopping through. I loved the Fear Street books in middle school. Fun candy :-)
    My Hop

  14. I did answer the question I said Thumbelina ;)

  15. I could stare at the Fear Street Pic forever!!!!--Sorry to hear about the FF, but I can't wait to see your Feature on the 15th!!!

    As for fairies...I like fairy tales, but I'm still on the fence about the actual fae...If you re-watch Peter Pan, Tinkerbell can be *mean*--I definitely wouldn't want to be on her bad side!!!--But I agree with you, I like the pretty fairies!!!

    I had no idea about fairies in True Blood--I totally need to look into that!!! :)

    Hope you have a great week!!!

  16. Hye, I'm from Malaysia, actually Fear Street from RL Stine is my favorite from year 1998 until now...
