Feature and Follow Friday #1

Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee. They ask a question, in which you answer on your own blog, and then you link back up with them. After you post, you can go back to the other links to discover new blogs and friends!

Q: What are you thankful for?

I'm thankful for all of my awesome GReeps, who help to make this blog possible! Since this blog is brand spanking new, I figured I would give you a background on who we are, how we met, and what we are actually about. 
So, ahem:
A long time ago in a cyber galaxy far, far away there was a group on Goodreads called The Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy Fanatics. I stumbled upon this group and instantly fell in love with some of its wonderful people. They were funny, snarky, and most importantly gave me awesome book recs. As the year wore on I found myself counting some of these great people as truly wonderful friends. We got to know each other more and I just simply couldn't wait to discuss books with them. I felt like I had finally found my niche.

The really awesome thing is, we're all around the world. I'm from Alabama, while some of our other members are as far as the Netherlands. And yet, our love for books has brought us together. I think that's pretty amazing.

So, for this Thanksgiving, I'm definitely thankful for finding such awesome friends on the internet, and that none of them turned out to be secret pervs or pedophiles. 


  1. First of all, welcome to the blogging world! :D It's great that you found a group who shares your interests in books and gives you recommendations! And great that you haven't crossed the paths of any pervs and pedophiles! xD Happy Thanksgiving and new GFC follower. :)
