Happy Friday! Hopefully everyone had a good week, and if you didn't, well, it's behind you now. Everything is good!
Today (technically Thursday) is awesome because I just went to a concert and everyone was great. There are some talented musicians at my school! I also went with my best friend in the world, which made the experiences even better.
The Blog Hop is brought to you by Jennifer @ Crazy for Books! This week's question is:
Why do you read the genre that you do? What draws you to it?
What a spiffy question! I read a variety of books and I choose those books because of their beautiful covers and excellent descriptions. Most of these turn out to be Young Adult novels, Dystopian, or Fantasy/Paranormal.
I like Young Adult because a lot of those books go through things that I am familiar with as a junior in high school (raging hormones, love, difficult decisions, loss, etc.).
I'm drawn to Dystopian novels because it allows me to have that weird experience where the world I know is turned on its head and everyone is forced into an almost vegetable-like state where they're told what to do, when to do it, and how to do it (this applies to who you love, what kind of job you have, how many children you can have, and other such situations).
I love the paranormal/fantasy genre because they present subjects that are bigger than me and sometimes my mindset. I like reading about things that I can't see or physically touch.
Follow Friday is brought to you by Parajunkee. This week's question is:
What makes up your non-human family?
I love talking about my animals :)
I have four in all. Louie, the beagle that has been with us for at least two years now. Quincy, the mouse-catching cat (hurray for stereotypical cats!) and Sophie, the cat who hides in the basement. Sullivan, the dwarf Siberian hamster who lives in my room, actually knows how to run on the exercise wheel (my late gerbils were not smart enough to figure this out), and loves these little hamster treats that resemble chocolate chips, but they're yellow and they're supposed to taste like cheese (they don't. I tried).
Now you know.
