  • If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the Love...and the followers
  • If you're new to the follow friday hop, comment and let me know, so I can stop by and check out your blog!

  • Q. If you could write yourself a part in a book, what book would it be and 
    what role would you play in that book?

    Actually, I have no idea. I mean, I'd love to be one of Mr. Darcy's sister (I wouldn't steal him from Elizabeth!) or a Shawdowhunter. But maybe a role I would love to have is a Greek Goddess... yes! This is the one, I love Greek mythology and I know all about it so that should be the perfect role for me :)
    Now, which Goddess? I have no idea, I like all of them. Maybe Artemis or Aphrodite... and if I go for the male God that would be Dionisos because I just love how crazy and great he is! (and because I'm crazy like that xD)

    What about you, guys? Tell me a role you would love to have, I'm sure there's going to be really interesting answers, hahaha.

    Also, if you have time, check my interview with Sharde Richardson, author of "Watched" HERE.

    Have a great weekend!


    1. I also enjoy Greek Mythology. I dont know who I would pick either. What a hard choice!

      Here is my follow Friday answer. Hope you will come by for a visit and follow if you enjoy. Have a great weekend!

    2. Old follower stopping by!

      To be anywhere near Mr Darcy would just be... heaven! ;D

    3. Wow- interesting choices! I'm realising as I run around the MANY links in this linky that I should have taken a little longer on my answer ;D

      Here for F.F to say hi and follow. Also - Please check out the request/offer of free-ebook for review @ this weeks link ;D Shah.


    4. oooh, Shadowhunter, that's a good one! If I was a greek goddess I'd probably be the huntress Artemis, and my version would be a wild woman who goes around breaking men's hearts. haha

      I'm following you back, THANKS for following me =)

    5. Oh I <3 Greek mythology! Ever since I did a unit of it in 7th grade I've been addicted to it! Loving the new books out there that have been threading in some Greek mythology elements!

      I would so go with Artemis! She was my fave! I liked how she was a tomboy of sorts. When I was 13 I went through a phase like that of sorts. But still thought she was total kickass!

      Here's my Friday Hops

      Have a GREAT weekend!

      Old Follower :)

    6. Oh, to spend the day (or a few) as a Greek Goddess? Yes please! Great answer!

      I'm an old follower hopping through!
      My FF Post:

    7. Greek mythology! It didn't occur to me to pick that one. I did my high school research paper on Greek mythology and I adore it. Definitely need to read some more of the genre.

      New follower. Thanks for the follow :)

    8. If I were a Greek God, my favorite thing to do would be to intervene in people's lives. Being a natural nosy-body would be just marvelous!

      PS: I'm a new follower! Please check out my post, where I desperately want to be written into GONE WITH THE WIND. Thanks!

    9. If I were a Greek God, I'd love to know everything about everyone's lives. SO FUN!

      PS: I'm a new follower! Please check out my post, where I desperately want to be written into GONE WITH THE WIND. Thanks!

    10. Your answer is great. :D This was such a hard one to answer, thanks for commenting on my FF and following my blog. I made sure to follow your blog also. :)

    11. Shadowhunters are popular today, can't blame for that pick though, they are quite awesome. ;)

      New follower. :)
      My Friday @ For The Love of Reading!

    12. Hey there! Happy Friday! Just wanted to hop by and say thanks for commenting and following. I would totally be a Shadowhunter.

    13. Hola Alaiel! Artemis! Wow! Why didn't I think of her?! I have always wanted to be her. Great picks. I had a hard time with this one. I dream myself in everything I read haha. My FF is at

    14. Good morning! Thank u for stopping by my blog :) I love to meet new ppl ESPECIALLY fellow Peruvians! Well, I am not a true Peruvian but an "adopted" one. My husband (boyfriend of 7 years) was born & raised in Lima, Dad was 100% Peruvian, Mom is like me-Irish,German,Polish,etc.etc.
      Luis/Mike looks like his Mom & Brian his brother looks like the real Peruvian..Luis(Mike) is the "Undercover Peruvian" lolz.
      The family goes to Lima at least 1x a year.
      I JUST had Lomo Saltado last night.
      I CANT WAIT to go to Peru. I have ALWAYS wanted to go there looong b4 I met Luis/Mike & long b4 it became a tourist destination. I want to do the typical tourist thing & do a volunteer stint up in the mountains.
      Brian was JUST in Brasilia too! Small world. Kinda cool. How is Switzerland? My Father loved it, he was there during the War (he had me very late in life).
      Sorry to blabber on your page like this * embarrassed*
      I was excited to learn of your cool background.
      Have gr8 Friday, I am off to work but had to post this b4 I forgot.

    15. I followed you back!! And I think Greek Mythology is so interesting! What books do you recommend? Something that's true to the REAL Greek Mythology and has some action in it and maybe romance if thats possible

    16. Hey Alaiel,

      I approve of your choice wholeheartedly! Greek mythology has so many interesting archetypes and stories to choose from that I can see you have a lot of fun exploring them!

      Have a lovely weekend!

      The Word Fiend

    17. Oooooo nice! Who wouldn't want to be a greek goddess!

    18. Ooh that would be fun to be Artemis! =D Thanks for stopping by my blog. =) I am now following you as well!!

    19. Hi! I'm a new follower, and am really enjoying reading through your reviews and recommendations. It's so cool that you chose Greek Mythology for your character. I just finished a book by a new author that I'm working with called (S)Mythology by Jeremy Tarr. It's a modern day fairy tale that is wry and whimsical, and tackles life...death...and the Underworld. The book is super cute and has illustrations by artist Katy Smail, which really bring the main character Sophie to life. Sophie has really fantastical adventures meeting really wild characters that make the story so much fun.

      It's definitely akin to a lot of mythological stories and characters and I think you'd really like it!

      You can read the first three chapters and check out the illustrations at or check out the book on Amazon here:

      Love the blog!

    20. Thanks for visiting my blog! I love Greek mythology as well and I've always loved Artemis in particular. I'm a follower of your blog!

    21. Awww, how nice are you, being Mr. Darcy's sister!! lol I wouldn't be so nice. ;) Being a greek goddess would be so intense but a lot of fun!

      I chose being Mia in the Princess Diaries series OR Yelena in Poison Study. Princess or an assassin. That's how I role! :D

    22. Being a Greek Goddess would be so cool! Great choice!

    23. Thanks for the follow! I'm following back. :)

      Wow, being a goddess would be pretty cool. Neat idea!

    24. Great answer and I love Greek mythology too! I'd probably choose to be Athena.

      Thanks for visiting my blog and I'm now following you back!

    25. Thanks for commenting on my FF. Am now following you. :) I have to admit, Greek myths did cross my mind, but I went the Douglas Adams route instead. Buuuuuut if I could be a Greek myth I think I'd like to be... Hermes. He is so clever and helpful and does all sorts of things for the gods (or to them!). I just think he's awesome.


    Something to share? (cheese would be awesome!) I love to read your comments :]
