Blog Hop and Follow Friday (14)

Follow Friday is a really fun way to network your blog and meet some other really cool bloggers in the process! This weekly event is hosted at Parajunkee's View!

Q: In light of Summer Solstice, also known as Midsummer...What is your favorite fairy tale or story that revolves around the Fae?

A: When I was little my favorite fairy tale was the Little Mermaid. I've always been drawn to the mermaids and they still remain my favorite genre in Young Adult. As far as stories about the fae, my favorite, and well the only books I've read about the Fae is the Iron Fae series by Julie Kagawa.

The Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love for the written word. This incredibly awesome weekly event is hosted by Jennifer at Crazy for Books!

Q: When did you realize reading was your passion and a truly important part of your life?

A: Well, I really got into reading in elementary school when my friends and I would pass around R.L. Stine's Fear Street books and I would read one or two a weekend. I realized that I absolutely loved reading and especially horror books. Towards the end of high school I started reading the romance classics such as Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre. After that, I started reading Stephen King and Ted Decker. While in undergrad, I saw Twilight at Walmart and picked it up not knowing what I was getting myself into. I read the whole series and found myself browsing the Young Adult section at the local bookstores. Ever since then, it's like I'm addicted and I just can't get enough.

I love the Little Mermaid too! It isn't what I picked but I still love it. I havn't read many books about faeries.

When did I first realize I loved reading? I wish I could prove a pre-natal predilection towards books but my memories don’t stretch back quite that far.

The earliest memories I can recall involved books. First having them read to me then reading them on my own the minute I had the ability.

Books have been a major part of my life ever since. My passion for the written word knowing no bounds, I started writing books on top of reading them about ten years ago.

Hopping through. I really enjoyed RL Stine as a kid.
It's amazing what Twilight did for YA.

Just dropping by for the blog hop. It seems like a lot of people started reading at a young age and then just continued on. It was like that for me. You can read my thoughts on it here: http://moments-of-beauty.blogspot.com/2011/06/it-started-with-babysitters-club.html

We passed Christopher Pike books around when I was in middle school...They were mine and everyone wanted to read them...haha So I'd do like a library does and let people borrow them for a certain length of time! (Found your blog from Book Blogger Hop)
