Follow Me Friday (14)


Follow Me Friday is a fun book meme hosted by the fabulous Parajunkee over at Parajunkee's View AND Allison over at Allison Can Read. Have a book blog? You can play with us too! Just visit Parajunkee's site by clicking on LC's Follow Friday icon-- be sure you are a follower of her blog and the blog she is featuring for the week, put your name in the Linky, create your own FF post on your blog, and then start commenting and following whomever you wish!

This week's Follow Friday question:
In books like the Sookie Stackhouse (True Blood) series the paranormal creature in question "comes out of the closet" and makes itself known to the world. Which mythical creature do you wish would come out of the closet, for real?

Um... haha, I'm not sure I totally understand what this question is asking, but I guess I would say that, if I had to choose one type of "mythological creature" to make itself known, my first answer would be vampires, due to the fact that I'm reading the Vampire Academy series right now by Richelle Mead, and they're all I can think about! But obviously, they would have to be the incredibly sexy Moroi and Dhampir kinds-- not those gross, icky Strigoi!! ;)

I wouldn't choose fairies because fairies-- in every book I've read about them so far-- have annoyed the crap out of me. Same goes with mermaids. But vampires? Yup, I would take a smokin' hott vamp any day :D

**PS~ OK, I have to clarify, because people are wondering: I'm not annoyed by ALL mermaids (and probably not by all fairies) but just based on the books I've read about them so far-- they annoy me. Lost Voices was a great book, but trust me, if you read it, you will get super annoyed at mermaids too lol! I haven't found a really good fairy book I can relate to yet, besides maybe Tithe by Holly Black... Don't worry guys, I plan on reading many more books with both fairies and mermaids, until I find something I like!

<--------------  Oh, and speaking of Vampire Academy-- has anyone gotten their hands on the VA graphic novel yet?? I am pretty much dying to read this!!



  1. New follower! I thought about picking vampires, but I actually chose fairies! They annoy me, but I find them fascinating... I dunno. :)

    My post, should you like to see!

    Paper Cuts

  2. I think vampires will be a popular choice for this one. I chose faeries myself...*runs and hides* lol I do love vampires though. I haven't read anything with mermaids yet, but I have a few books on my list. I also have Vampire Academy on my list, just haven't gotten around to it yet. So many books, so little time. Happy Friday Lea!

  3. Vampires are a popular choice today! I just won the new VA graphic novel and CAN'T WAIT to get it! I don't think I've ever heard of someone being annoyed by mermaids lol. I think I may find mermaids convenient in the near future with Hurricane Irene bearing down on my beautiful NC coast! I may need one to come rescue me!!
    I'm already a follower of your wonderful blog, I'm just hopping by to say hello!

    Donna @ The Happy Booker

  4. I sure wouldn't mind a vamp like Dmitri! That is a great series.

    Have a wonderful weekend. I'm following you.

    Holjo @ Pedantic Phooka

  5. Hopping through. Totally with you on VA. I can't wait to read the graphic novel. I want to re-read the series.
    My Hop

  6. I picked vampires as well and I'm also starting to work my way through the Vampire Academy series. I'm really enjoying it so far.

    New follower here by the way :)

  7. I think a lot of people chose vampire, but they freak me out...had to go with something a little less scary in mine. ;)

    New folllower!

  8. Sookie vampires and Vampire Academy vampires have been the popular choice this week. I need to read these books, lol.

  9. Hi! Following you from the Feature & Follow Friday Book Blog Hop. Would love a follow back on my blog: Nice to meet you.

  10. Hi & Happy Friday!

    A great answer.. I picked the VA vampires as well :)

    My FF,

    Have a great weekend.

  11. I love vampires but I would totally freak if I ever met one. =)

  12. Thank you for stopping by my blog! I'm an old follower, and I LOVE your Alice signature. I actually noticed it a little while ago and have been secretly jealous of it. ;) Thanks for your compliments on my buttons, those illustrations hold so much power in them, and yet they remain so subtle...

    And it's okay to be annoyed by fairies! In fact, Tinker Bell annoys the hell out of me, but I pretty much would want her around for my own selfish reasons. lol. Mead's vampires are an interesting choice. I think vampires would be cool, only if I had assurances one wouldn't want to eat me.

    By the way, if you liked the Alice-themed stuff, you should check out my review policy page on my blog, and see how I do my rating system. :D

  13. Agreed, the sexy vamps would be the way to go.

  14. A smokin hot vamp would be nice! I call dibs on Spike or Bones!

    Rie @ Mission to Read

  15. Hi! new blog/twitter follower!!! ooh--fun choice!!!--There is definitely something to said for sexy vampires!!! ;)

    for my pick, I decided to go with genies...I figure I can always wish for all the other magical creatures, lol. ;)

    Hope you have a great weekend!!! :)


  16. Hopping through.Great answer. Mine is at

  17. Glad you're reading the VA series. I just re-read it over the past week, and finished Bloodlines last night. They are all such amazing books. I'm also dying to get my hands on the graphic novel! Let me know if you get it! :)

    Happy Friday!
    Scarlet Letters

  18. LOL I love mermaids and chose them as my answer even though most of the ones in Lost Voices annoyed me too. Have you read Forgive My Fins and Fins Are Forever by Tera Lynn Childs?

    Have a good weekend!

    The Musings of ALMYBNENR

  19. Love the answer! I just bought the first Vampire academy book so I'm looking forward to getting started on that soon.

    I haven't read the graphic novel but I have already heard great things about it. Hopefully you get a copy soon!

  20. Hi new follower! Good pick!

    You can find my Friday memes here: Pawing Through Books

  21. New follower, your blog is so gorgeous. If you have ever read the 'Black Dagger Brotherhood', those vamps are HOT!

    Enjoy your weekend,

  22. I can totally understand why faeries annoy you! (Haven't read anything mermaid-y really.) Plus, it would be terrifying! LOL. That magic and the fine line between good and evil? Hmm... Vampires and shifters seem easier to deal with. LOL. But I have to say, if one came out, I'd most likely wanna know about the rest. Or I'd assume a lot...

    I'm an old follower! Have a great weekend. :D

    My FF & Top Spot can be found here!

  23. I agree, vampires need to make themselves known. =)

  24. I agree, a lot of the mermaids in books I find annoying.

    Vampires are cool :D

    New follower!

  25. I totally agree about only wanting hot vampires to exist! New follower! Here's my FF.

  26. I agree gotta love those Dhamphirs and Moroi. I actually bought Bloodlines and was going to get The VA graphic Novel but didn't. I'll probably end up getting it because it looked interesting. Plus, I'm a complete VA fan.
