Book Blogger HopOn Fridays I participate in both Follow Friday and the Book Blogger Hop.

Follow Fridays is hosted by Parajunkee's View, and is just Fridays.

The Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Crazy-for-Books, and runs Friday to Monday. There are new rules for the hop, so make sure to check out Crazy for Books for the details.


This week's question from Crazy for Books:


Pick a character from a book you are currently reading or have just finished and tell us about him/her.

I just finished up a re-read of the Riley Jensen series by Keri Arthur. Riley is half vampire, half werewolf and has plenty of kiss ass attitude to go with that mixed heritage. She has the best skills from each half, and is an extremely powerful psychic, as in she can control other people's minds and read thoughts, etc. She has a twin brother, who is really her only pack. Others do come along, but her brother will always be right by her side. She also has an EXTREMELY high sex drive, but that is normal for her werewolf half. She works as a guardian of the directorate, taking out one bad guy at a time. I love this series and Riley's character!

This week's question from Parajunkee:

Do you have anyone to discuss books with in real life?
Yes, I do. I bought my mom a kindle for her birthday last year, and we share an account. So, she reads most of the books I do. Also my husband just started to listen to audiobooks of my favorites on his commute. He was tired of not knowing what my mom and I were talking about when we discussed books and characters like they were real. It has made reading even more fun.

  4. Hopping through. I agree that it's more fun to have someone IRL to discuss books with. I don't have many people, but it's fun to discuss books when friends/family have read them.

  8. *Snap* I bought my Mum a Kindle for her birthday in October last year and it shares my account at Amazon allowing us to read the same romance novels when our genres overlap.

    We discuss a lot of traditional type romances like those Harlequin produce and one of her favourite types of romance are regency historical ones, so we generally have a lot to discuss there.

    Unfortunately she doesn't like paranormal romances so all my book buddies for discussing those are online ones.

    I'm a new follower to your blog.

  9. My mom and my sister...and my whole family for that matter...don't read the same kind of books I do. For some reason they prefer books w/o the supernatural. What I call "normal" books because nothing paranormal happens! So I usually stick to the online blogging world to discuss my books with people. And one of my BFFs too!

    Here's my Friday Hops

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  18. That is so fun! I wish my boyfriend would want to do that, but he seriously cannot sit still long enough to read. Sigh. And my other (and only) reading friend, as well as parents, only read crimes or sci-fi books, which isn't what I read at all. At least I they usually listen when I have to talk about the books. :)

    Nice blog! New follower!
