Follow Friday (4)

Thursday, August 25, 2011


This week the feature follow at Parajunkee's View is: me! :)

This week's question is: 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?

I would either say a phoenix or a shifter. I have always loved phoenixes and shifters are awesome!

This week's feature @ Alison Can Read is: Jenni Elyse

Book Blogger Hop

Congrats on being this week's Follow Friday featured blogger. Great answer. I never thought too much about Phoenixes until I read about Dumbledore's Fawkes. I would love to find out they exist! I'm happy to be a new follower and I look forward to enjoying your reviews!

Congratulations on being featured! I'm your newest follower. :D

Phoenix would definitely be cool! Shifters were my number 2, but they managed to loose to the vampires. What can I say? I'm a vamp girl. Lol!

Mimi Valentine said...

You're definitely right, Samantha! Shifters are pure awesome -- they're a part of my answer, too! And I adore phoenixes because my mom is one in the zodiac. Well, technically she's a rooster but my entire family thinks that a phoenix is much more fitting! ;) They're so cool!

I'm a new follower for sure!

Here's my Follow Friday! And there's still time to enter my 100 (now almost 300) Followers Giveaway if you haven't already! :)

Hope you have an awesome weekend!

Kyla said...

I think a phoenix (while sweet in theory) would freak me out! A shifter...alpha male? Now THAT I could get on board with!! New follower here. Would love it if you popped by for a visit!

Just so you know, your twitter icon links to an invalid page, but I was able to fix it and follow you anyway.. Might want to take a look at the coding on that one when you get a chance :)

Happy Reading!

Happy FF! New blog/facebook/twitter/goodreads follower-- congrats on being the Feature!!!
--I LOVED that you put the smell of books next to the smell of coffee and fresh bread. *sigh*

Also, good call on Transformers 3--I actually thought it was kind of amazing...but there was SO MUCH action/explosions going on, that I had a horrible headache by the end of the movie :( Books are much easier on the eyes!!! :)

Hope you have a great weekend!!!

Samantha CONGRATULATIONS on being the one of the Featured Blogs this week :D

I was quite sure that I was already following your blog but when I logged in via GFC I had to re-follow so I mustn't have already subscribed.

I saw in Parajunkee that you want a Kindle, have you considered the Nook? That's what I'm buying for an ebook reader but it'll never replace actual books, don't worry I too love the smell of fresh pages of books.

Here's my "Follow Friday" post.

Hallo, new follower. Congrats on the feature! :)
I hadn't thought of phoenixes, I love phoenixes. That would be pretty damn awesome. There would be religious beliefs and rituals surrounding the rebirth all over, for sure :o

New follower! The Phoenix is beautiful; great choice! I'm afraid mine was more of a selfish decision - I want a Brownie to move into my house! I could use some help. :)

Happy FF!

Phoenixes would be fun. I spent forever trying to think of a real 'creature' for my answer but kept drawing blanks.

Happy reading!

Nice to meet you Samantha and congratulations on being one of this week's FF features! :)

A phoenix is a great choice - I love what they symbolise and I've thought about getting a tattoo of one done, but I can't find the right design.

Have a great weekend!
