Hopefully Autumn Follow Friday

Happy Follow Friday everyone! Dana's YA Bookpile has had a busy week. We have two contests for you to enter while you are here. Just scroll down a little and there they are. One for Lockdown and the other for Hooked. I can't wait to get my copies for review, but you get a chance to win one too!

Make sure you enter for extra points. The more points, the more chances you have to win!

Thanks for stopping by on the hop and supporting The Bookpile! Welcome back old friends and hopefully hello to some new ones. Leave a comment and let me know what you are reading. Stalk me on Twitter, Facebook and Google Plus. I am on Goodreads too! There are never enough wonderful people to talk books with.

You may wonder at my choice of picture today. In Houston, it has been over 100 degrees for days and days. The only rain we have gotten was last night, and it was a thunderboomer of epic proportions. I long for fall and some normal weather,'s me dreaming just a little.

Q. 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?

A. Wow. That's a hard one. I wish they all would come out of the closet for real and be real. It is hard to pick, as they all captivate me, but my favorites are a tie between the vampires and the werewolves. I love the eternal nature of vampires, but I also love the werewolves for their bond with the moon and the primal energy they keep barely pent up. It is hard to decide. Yes, I was one of the ones who had a hard time with Twilight and who Bella was going to chose in the end. My idea of werewolves is more like a man/wolf combination. Not just a big wolf running around. Like Richard in the Anita Blake books.

Thanks again for joining me on this wonderful Follow Friday! Have a safe weekend and read some great books!
A non book related question this week:

Q. Do you have pets?

A. Oh yes. Dogs. I rescue everything, so my furry babies are my life. My husband and I treat them like we would if we had kids. I also have four finches, a fish (Cranky Fish) and Godzilla the lizard.

My best and most wonderful baby is Taddy. He is the cutest thing ever...

Have a great weekend!
