Follow Friday!

Feature & Follow Friday is a weekly meme created by Parajunkee and co-hosted by Alison Can Read where bloggers hop around meeting and following other bloggers. This week's featured bloggers are Caught in the Pages & Jenni Elyse.

Q: In books like the Sookie Stackhouse (True Blood) series the paranormal creature in question "comes out of the closet" and makes itself known to the world. Which mythical creature do you wish would come out of the closet, for real?

A: What a hard question! Ever since I've been a little girl I've always had a thing for the Loch Ness Monster, or "Nessie" as she is now being called. There is something about her that just seems gentle and friendly. I don't believe I have ever read a book in which she was included or tv show about her, but there should be!

I also have a thing for shifters. I love the idea of people being able to transform into any animal they want. If I had that ability I'd spend most of life in the form of a cat. I can dream can't I? 


  1. Woohoo! I am your first follower! Thanks for stopping by my blog! Cats certainly are the best!!

  3. Welcome to the world of book blogging...wouldn't it be great to live in a book shop...then you can read whenever you want!

    We were hoping to get a picture of Nessie when we were in Scotland last fall, but I guess she didn't like the SNOW!

    Thanks for the follow...I have done the same!

  4. Aw, NEssie would be cute :)

  5. Thanks for stopping by my blog and following, I'm following you now too!

    I LOVE your answer! I've always been fascinated by the Loch Ness Monster :) and shifters are amazing :)

    Have a great weekend! :)


  6. Aww, I do remember a cartoon I loved as a kid. What was it, Family Ness? Something like that you should youtube it if you haven't heard of it, it's total nostalgia for me! :D

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I love the simplicity and colours of your blog. Easy on the eye, which is great when everybody else's blogs seem to be giving me a headache right now, haha. Following you back <3

    Once Upon A Time

  7. Humans really can never settle for what they are, can they? But it's DEFINITELY more fun that way.

    PS: I'm a new follower! Please do not be frightened to frivolously check out my Follow Me Friday post. Thanks and farewell!

  8. I'd love to spend part of my life as a cat, too...people could feed me, pamper me, and I'd get to nap in a snuggly spot on a sunny afternoon.

    Hmm. Come to think of it, if I'm reincarnated, I'm signing up to be a cat!

    Thanks for the FF visit! Am following back. :)

  9. Life as a cat would be the bees knees! You get to sleep all day and people pet you all the time!

    New follower!

  10. Nessie is a very original choice! Great answer!

    Thanks for the follow! Following back!

  11. Oh my gosh, yes! It would be so awesome if Nessie suddenly went public -- well, at least more realistically public that she already is. Because there are a bunch of people who believe in the Loch Ness! :)

    And shifters are just pure awesomeness! <3

    Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! I'm following you back for sure!

    Hope you have an awesome weekend! :)

  12. Wow it would be awesome if Nessie was real. New follower!

  13. new follower :) I just posted about my cats on a blog you posted on. I wish I remember what blog it

    Cats..As we speak my furry palz r sleeping. My babies r all former street cats (caught by me) spayed/neutered/vaccinated, of course. Or they are TNR's (trap/neuter/returns) cuz they cant be "tamed" for a house but deserve to be healthy & looked after from afar. My fave TNR's r Ghost Kitty & Sylvester.
    My doggy Bella is a Pitt Bull who's BFF is a cat named JB. Bella was found wandering in the snow as a pup on 1/1/09. I had JUST read the twilight series so the name seemed appropriate.

    Nessie would be awesome! I agree she seems very gentle and sweet.


  14. Shapeshifter = awesome! It would be great for me to be one but if I wasn't...I think the world would be a scary place. Who's real and who's not?! Thanks for stopping by!

  15. Ha! that could be an interesting book, if done right. hmmm....nessie...*taps chin*

    followed back. thanks for stopping by PiF!

  16. Hopping through. New follower! I'd love for Nessie to be real. But only if I could discover it - and take a picture and sell it.

  17. New follower!

    There is something so intriguing and magical about the mystery of Nessie. I totally believe she's real. I'd love to read a YA paranormal book that featured Nessie...that would make an awesome story.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and following.

  18. Following back:)Love your Nessie answer!

  19. Nessie! That's a great answer, I do remember two films about her when I was younger but can't remember the titles. One had Gibbs from NCIS in it, though.

    Thanks for following, followed back! :-)

  20. Great answer! I loved Nessie as a child too and shifters are awesome. Thanks for stopping by my FF post. Happy Reading

  21. I think they should have a tv show about the
    Loch Ness Monster ,too. Thank you for stopping by.

  22. Oh the Loch Ness Monster! That's a brilliant idea, I never thought of that. I did read a book about her once, but it was an old Dr Who novelisation, I think.

    I do think there's SOMETHING in the loch, even if it's just a big lizard.

  23. First time I've seen Nessie as an answer! Ever since watching that movie, The Water Horse, I've wanted to see a loch ness monster of sorts.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! Have a great week!

  24. Shifters would be really cool! And the Loch Ness Monster! Awesome!! Thanks for following, now following back!

  25. Great answer! The Loch Ness Monster does seem really cool! If I was a shifter I would totally be a cat,too! I've always loved how graceful and agile they were. Thanks for following me! Now I'm following you!

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

    When I was a kid I was really into Nessie. Haven't heard much about her in years though.


  27. I have always liked the Lochness Monster also! I think the fascination is that she could be real. LOL! Great answer.

    Thanks for hopping by my blog.

    Magic Is In Words

  29. Shifters would be awesome, but I'd probably be freaked out watching them shift. Or wait, I'd probably honestly be pretty freaked out if anything paranormal came out of the closet LOL.

  30. That is prob the most orig, answer I've seen this whole FF. Nicely done. I am now following you back.


  31. That would be super cool if Nessie were real. Great answer!

  32. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Wow, I haven't heard anyone come up with answers like the Loch Ness monster or shifters so far. Great choices!
