Book Bloggers Hop & Follow My Book Blog Friday!

Hello to all my wonderful followers and to hopefully some potential new ones! This Friday I’m participating in The Book Bloggers Hop which is hosted by Jennifer at Crazy for Books and Follow my Book Blog Friday that’s hosted over at Parajunkee's View. If you wish to take part please stop by there and sign the Mr Linky. This week's question from The Hop is… Why do you read the genre that you do? What draws you to it? Well I read a lot of different genre’s and love a lot of different genres. But I can hardly ever pull myself away from YA long enough to read any of them. I love how the genre of YA really covers a whole lot of other genres. It can be contemporary fiction or sci-fi or paranormal romance there’s so much choice when you go to the YA section of a bookstore. Being only 20 I still feel very much like a teenager myself and can connect to teen characters more than say a 30 year old heroine with kids and a divorce on her plate. I love the characters and I love the possibilities that come when you pick up a YA book and that’s why it’s my drug of choice. This week's question from Follow Friday is… What makes up your non-human family?? I only have the one fur baby my 4 year old labradoodle Dylan. He’s a cross between a poodle and a Labrador so if you haven’t heard of them before just picture a really fluffy Labrador. He’s HUGE and because he’s so big and fluffy we nickname him Bear. When people see the size of him their usually intimidated but he’s the biggest softy and would make the worst guard dog ever! That being said I’m not just a dog person I also love cats but unfortunately with having a huge dog I can’t get a cat but that doesn’t mean I don’t love swooning over the cuteness of other peoples cats! I’ve never had a cat before but would love to be a proud owner of one someday. Thank you for stopping by my blog!! Please leave me a link back to yours if you are a new follower so I can return the hello :-)

  5. Happy Friday Jess! your puppy sounds so cute :-) My sister had a cat growing up & he was the meanest thing EVER, haha. But then he got old & wrinkly & became nice. Weird how that works.

  7. Being 22, I definitely still relate to the characters in YA over adult fiction. I probably always will :p

  8. I think one of the biggest appeals of YA is that really everyone can relate. We've all been teenagers (or currently are) at some point - like you said, not everyone has been divorced or has kids, but we've all fallen in love for the first time or dealt with high school politics.

    Happy Hop Day!

  18. Just hopping on by :) I know, I still feel a lot like a teenager and definitely find the YA protags a lot more relatable than some adult chicklit etc.
