Book Blogger Hop

It's time for the Book Blogger Hop again!  I’m not sure if I’ll be doing this every week, but I will make an effort.  It’s a great way to meet other blogges and see what books are hot etc...  Last week I checked out the following blogs a bunch of blogs.  I love seeing and reading the passion that others have about books.  Check out to see all the participants in this week’s blog hop. And if you get a chance…hop on by.

Book Blogger Hop

And now…onto the Blog Hop question. This week's question comes from Barb who blogs at Sugarbeat's Books:

“Why do you read the genre that you do?
What draws you to it?"

There are two genres I’m crazy about.  First, I love paranormal romance – (YA or Adult) the darker the better – and the second, historical romance.  I’m a sucker for rogue vampires and rebellious rakes.  Go figure.  For paranormal, which I believe urban fantasy falls into this category a tad, I love the mystical side of it.  Aren’t there times in your life when you ask yourself wouldn’t it be cool to fly or have magic or live forever?  And then of course there’s the romance side of the paranormal – which is absolutely paramount for me.  I must have my romance or else…bleh!  As for historical romance, I guess it goes back last week’s previous question about “What’s your favorite book?”  I said Jane Austen, so I think it’s only natural that I adore this genre as well.  I'm fascinated with regency novels and how women were overall perceived back then.  It’s frightening to read how women's lives were easily dictated by men. Scary huh?

Anyway, thanks for stopping by and be sure and check out my posts this week:
