Book Blogger Hop & Follow Friday

Trying to get back into the swing of weekly blogging, and what better way than to participate in the weekly crazes 
Follow Friday and Book Blogger Hop?
This week’s Book Blogger Hop question:

“Why do you read the genre that you do?  What draws you to it?”
Well, as my reading tastes are wildly eclectic (ahem, excuse the shameless reference to my blog name), I am drawn to various genres because they all satisfy something specifically different in me. I don’t get the same pleasure from a children’s picturebook vs. children’s novel, much less the same from a paranormal romance vs. adult non-fiction (all of which I read on a weekly basis). So, in short, it depends on my mood, on the time of year, on whether I’m traveling, on where I’ll be reading the book, on how long I’ll have to read at any given time, on what I read last, on what I last ate (just kidding), etc.
This week’s Follow Friday question:
What makes up your non-human family? 
I don’t currently have a non-human family of my own. My parents have a large black lab and a half-domesticated, feral barn cat. The house I live in has a cat, but it belongs to the owners and only likes me if a) they’re not home, or b) it wants to be fed. But someday I will live with a blue Great Dane named Bella (that name was decided upon PRE-Twilight, folks, so don’t even go there) and a stray cat.

  7. Thanks for hopping to my blog, and for the book recommendations. I have 84, Charing Cross on request from the library- it's one of those books I've meant to read for a long while. And The Agency sounds like a great one to add to my list for the YA Historical Fiction Challenge.

Book review time! 
The Story of Diva and Flea
By Mo Willems + Tony DiTerlizzi
Loved this as a read-aloud for little ones that can sit still for longer picture books, or, as it's a beginning chapter book, great for ages 6-8 who are learning how to read more confidently by themselves.

#poemaday #nationalpoetrymonth #haiku #kerouac #wildlyread #poem #poetry First day of full-time hours in my new job as a bookseller for an independent bookstore, and it's staff pick time! I fell in love with this book years ago, before the movie was even a dream. Though I'm not a fan of the movie tie-in cover, I'll gladly place this book in readers' hands. . . .
