Follow Friday! {21} and Top Spot #1



Question this week from Parajunkee


Q. In books like the Sookie Stackhouse Series aka True Blood, the paranormal creatures in question "come out of the closet" and makes itself known to the world. Which Mythical cretaure do you wish would come out of the closet, for real?

A.  I would either go with werewolf or Unicorn... haha yep thats right I said Unicorn. I have no idea but I have always wanted to see a real Unicorn.. but I guess they can't really come out of the closet unless they were a shifter of some sort. Otherwise I'd say werewolf cause I would love to see a man like Adam from Mercy Thompson Series or Alcide from Sookie Stackhouse, now those are some good looking werewolves I'd like to be real.

Possess
POSSESS by Gretchen McNeil
My Favorite Book this month... Wow thats such a hard question because I've loved so many but I'm going to go with Possess by Gretchen McNeil. I was extremely captivated by the unquie storyline and haunting words crafted by McNeil. The characters were memorable and I really never wanted this book to end. I think before I read Possess I knew it was going to be a great book, I had it on my shelf for months staring at me and I just knew once I read it I wouldnt want it to end. Overall I felt that this book held its own against the vampires, werewolves, fae and so on that have been so popular. I liked that I could tell how much research must have been done to get the story right and give it the realistic vibe that it held. Hands down my favorite book of August, so much so I gave it 5 out of 5 stars.
