FeatureFollowParaAlisonGain new followers and make new friends with the Book Blogger Feature & Follow! If this is your first time here, welcome! You are about to make some new friends and gain new followers — but you have to know — the point of this hop is to follow other bloggers also. I follow you, you follow me.

The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts,Parajunkee of Parajunkee’s Viewand Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it’ll allow us to show off more new blogs!

This week’s question:

Do you like fantasy or realistic books?

I’m pretty equal between the two.  There is nothing like a fantasy, sci-fi or paranormal to let me escape for a few hours.  But I can escape just as easily with a contemporary novel or a how-to book.  Basically, if it has printed letters on it I will most likely read it.

If you’re a new follower I’d really prefer a Bloglovin’ follow – the button is over on the side bar 🙂  Thanks.

Now since there are no official feature blogs to check out, I’m going to follow our hosts idea of celebrating National Love Your Pets Day.  🙂

My home is ruled by two felines.  Charlie, who is our 18 year old grey striped king of the household (very much a smaller version of Charlie in that picture of National Love Your Pet Day banner)

And I introduced Leia earlier this week on a Waiting on Wednesday post but here she is in all her Ragdoll beauty again…. my puppy-cat who loves her belly rubbed.  Leia is in her terrible 2’s right now.  She is the largest cat I’ve ever had weighing in at 32 pounds of solid muscle and fur.  And when she lands on you… You Know It.

      I love fantasy, especially anything with a paranormal slant. I just plain love to read so I’m not too picky.

      Thanks for visiting 🙂

    I’m a sucker for romance – give me a love story in any genre and I’m a happy chick.

    Thanks for visiting:)

      Hi Tracy,

      I actually sat and thought today – what would I do if I could no longer read?

      And the effect that would have on me is simply too powerful for words. We take it for granted – but I do love my books 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by.

      Hi Sparrowhawk,

      (every time I remember I should use Sparrowhawk after I hit post.. I’m sorry.)

      Awww… That’s rough being allergic to cats. They are literally everywhere!

      Thanks you, I do adore those fluff balls 🙂

      If I couldn’t escape through reading I’d be in a sorry state of mind.

      Enjoy the weekend 🙂

    Hi Christina,

    Thanks she is a beauty. She also sheds horribly. lol I could knit a sweater a week with the fur I gather up. 🙂

    I enjoy escaping into a fantasy world. They seem to get more detailed with every new book I find.

    Thanks for stopping 🙂

  3. Aww, Leia is gorgeous!! My cat’s name is Captain Han Solo and my puppy’s name is Skywalker, lol!

    I love both, but if I absolutely had to choose, I’d go with fantasy! Nothing like escaping reality!

    Old follower, thank you for stopping by!

      Hi Pearl,

      Oh how adorable – I totally approve of your choice of names 🙂 Leia got her name quite deliberately — she acts like such a Princess even as a wee kitten, now she thinks like a Queen. 😛

      Escaping reality is one of the main reasons I read to begin with – so fantasy fills that need very well.

      Thanks for visiting 🙂

  4. Oh my, your cats are cute! I never had a pet. :3 I never was permitted by my parents to keep one. But, I think they did raise a fair point about me couldn’t even take care of a stray cat. I stop feeding the stray cat after a few days because I either forgot or was lazy. xD Thus, it’s probably better that I don’t have a pet.

    Hi Azee,

    Maybe one day that will change. 🙂 Leia is not shy about letting me know it’s time for food. She will jump up on my desk and sit on my mouse and complain loudly until I get up and fill the bowl. I am totally owned by my cats lol

    Thanks for stopping by 🙂

      Oh my goodness – I cannot believe this cold got to me to the point that I didn’t see these additional comments.

      I am so sorry to have not replied sooner. 🙁

      Romance is where my heart is – and I can find romance within so many genre that I’m never at a loss.

      Thanks, Leia is cute and so not cuddly. lol She literally pushes on my shoulders to get away from cuddles.

      I love to dive into a book and escape the real world for awhile. There have been times when I am certain being able to do so has saved my sanity.

      Such a mood reader – but as long as that mood has some romance in it, I’m good.

      Thanks for visiting.

      It’s what I love about being able to escape into books – I can visit any world, at any time in history or fantasy and still feel right at home.

      Thanks – the cats are like family. I don’t know what I’d do without either of them now.

      Thanks for stopping by for a visit.

      I love paranormals. If I “had” to pick out one absolute favorite it would be paranormal.

      I simply love to be able to escape to another world, any world, at times.

      Thanks for visiting.
