A Note:


I once told myself: IF I am accepted into grad school, this blog would no longer be updated. As it turns out, in April, I received news of my acceptance for the Fall 2013 semester, where I will attain a Master's degree of Science in Nutrition.

Running a blog, as many of you may already know, is a demanding side job once the excitement wears off. And once I fell out of the blogging community's loop (have you SEEN how many blogs there are now? Wow!), it was like the kiss of death. Despite my best efforts, I couldn't get into a blogging routine once this happened due to the disconnect I felt from the community.

So I took a break. I struggled with the loss and with missing my blog. And then I realized I didn't have to run Book Faery to still be a book reviewer; I could read my books and post reviews online. I'm still a book review blogger, just not in the traditional sense.

I'll still be online. You can chat with me on Twitter, where I'll be posting links to my reviews and talking books. I'll also be posting links to nutrition articles. And if you'd like to connect with me where I guarantee I will post reviews, just add me as a friend on Goodreads.

So that's all, folks! It's been a fun and amazing journey, and I thank you all for listening to my thoughts about books. I hope we all can keep in touch elsewhere :)

Giveaway: Hush, Hush & Crescendo!

A big thank you to Simon & Schuster for not only granting me the opportunity to read Hush, Hush and Crescendo, but for also allowing me to host a giveaway for both books. 

As most of you probably already know, Crescendo, by Becca Fitzpatrick, is being released on Oct 19th.  To celebrate its release, TWO WINNERS will receive a catch-up copy of Hush, Hush, along with a copy of Crescendo!

Hush, Hush – In paperback September 21

A sacred oath, a fallen angel, a forbidden love.

Nora Grey has had a rough year. Her father was murdered and as a result, her mother had thrown herself into work, leaving Nora alone most of the time in their secluded farmhouse. Despite this, she manages to be a very good girl, never missing school, never even driving without permission.

But when the transfer student, Patch, gets assigned as her lab partner in biology, from the moment the two are together, there's an inescapable magnetism that draws Nora deeper and deeper into his dark world. When she discovers the enormous V-shaped scars on his back, she discovers that there is a battle going on between the fallen and the immortal. And she's the object.

The magnetism she feels is now more inescapable than ever.

Crescendo – Available October 19

The sequel to the New York Times Best selling phenomenon, Hush, Hush!

Nora should have know her life was far from perfect. Despite starting a relationship with her guardian angel, Patch (who, title aside, can be described anything but angelic), and surviving an attempt on her life, things are not looking up. Patch is starting to pull away and Nora can't figure out if it's for her best interest or if his interest has shifted to her arch-enemy Marcie Millar. Not to mention that Nora is haunted by images of her father and she becomes obsessed with finding out what really happened to him that night he left for Portland and never came home.

The farther Nora delves into the mystery of her father's death, the more she comes to question if her Nephilim blood line has something to do with it as well as why she seems to be in danger more than the average girl. Since Patch isn't answering her questions and seems to be standing in her way, she has to start finding the answers on her own. Relying too heavily on the fact that she has a guardian angel puts Nora at risk again and again. But can she really count on Patch or is he hiding secrets darker than she can even imagine?

To be entered in this giveaway, answer the question:

If you could be any kind of paranormal creature, what would you be, and why?

  1. I would like to be a mermaid.


  2. Fairy - in the sookie world they attract the hottie vamps - and in the Mortal Instrument world they are bad ass- so yeah they rock.

  3. If I could be any paranormal creature I'd want to be a shapeshifter.

  6. hmmm

    Right now I would love to be a very powerful witch. I've always loved witches. Charmed is one of my favorite TV series EVER!

    Thank you for the giveaway!

  7. I don't know what I'd want to be. There are so many cool options out there. Maybe a vampire b/c they stay young and can fight and I'm not a huge fan of the sun anyway. lol.

    Thanks for the contest!

  8. I'd probably want to be a shapeshifter, or more specifically, an Encantado.

    Tweeted: http://twitter.com/AmandaxRenee/status/24491787996

  9. If I could be any paranormal creature I'd probably want to be a weremermaid. Because I would get the benefits of being a mermaid and still be human the rest of the time.


    tweeted, http://twitter.com/GeckyBoz/statuses/24491814444

  10. I would so be a shapeshifter! And then just play in front of the mirror for hours with my friends. XD I'm so immature.
    christianchick52 at gmail dot com

  11. I think I would want to be an elemental, either fire or water.


  12. I would be a shapeshifter. I love wolves and being out in the woods.

    I tweeted! http://twitter.com/urbanfangirl/status/24492449660

  13. I would love to shapeshifter because of being able to change into a new animal.

    aprilmom00 at gmail dot com

  14. This is a fun questions especially since books, movies, and television have made paranormal creatures so different. I like being human so I think I'd like to be a paranormal creature that lets me keep my humanness. I like mermaids in Tera Lynn Childs' Forgive My Fins. I think it would be fun to be a mermaid like that.

    Emily ebdye1(at)gmail

  15. At the risk of sounding lame... I'd want to be a vampire. Just to see what it's like.


  16. Mmmmm, I would choose a shapeshifter (nonspecific). That way I could be whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted to! EXCELLENT :D

    kemendraugh at gmail dot com

  17. I would be a Siren, since I'm a SoCal native :)


  18. I think I would want to be a vampire. I guess because you have physical beauty AND the time to become wise as well.

    I am a blog follower, and I tweeted here: http://twitter.com/elliottreview/status/24494816999

    Thanks for this opportunity.
    jlelliott08 AT gmail DOT com

  19. A witch for sure :). That way I could protect myself or fight if need be without getting too physical lol.

    http://twitter.com/pamgreen89 to see my twitter status where I retweeted the link to your giveaway :)

    Can't wait for Crescendo to come out!!


  20. I'd probably be a faery because I love the magic aspect. Or I would be a werewolf just because I like wolves. Hmmmmm


  21. I think I'd be a Valkyrie because I'm strong, tough and can kick a**!

  22. I would either be a Banshee or La Llorona (Spanish for "The Crying Woman") it came from Mexico, a very well known legend in Spanish-speaking cultures in the colonies of the Americas, with many versions extant. The story is that La Llorona was a beautiful woman who killed her children to be with the man that she loved and was subsequently rejected by him. He might have been the children's father who had left their mother for another woman. She drowned the children and then, after being rejected anyway, killed herself. She is doomed to wander, vainly searching for her children for all eternity. Her constant weeping is the reason for her name. In some cases according to the tale, she will kidnap wandering children or children who misbehave. Email- Mdcarrizosa22(at)gmail(dot)com

  23. If I could be any type of supernatural character, I think I would be a shapeshifter so I could be just about anything. Although, the draki in Sophie Jordan's Firelight are pretty awesome....to have supernatural abilities and the ability to fly...that would be great!
    Thanks for the great contest!

    esperanza62 at gmail dot com

  24. I would want to be a dragon, to fly and be so strong!

    mdwartistry at yahoo dot com

  25. I would be a werewolf. Lately I've been reading whatever werewolf book I can get a hold of. I've been reading paranormal since I was 13 and now for some reason, I'm addicted to werewolves! Can't explain it! There are a lot of positives to being one too, depending on which author writes about them and gives them their perks. ;)

    Great contest!


  26. pick me...pick me!!

    I would be a mindfreak kind of character who could manipulate the elements with my thoughts. Then I could stay my beautiful self (cough cough), and still scare the crap out of my enemies! Kick ass!! In Stilettoes!!

    I RT.

    Thanks for the opportunity.

  27. OMG, sorry forgot my email.

    soapboxinmymind AT yahoo DOT com

  28. If I could be any paranormal creatures then I would really like to be a Shadowhunter (Mortal Instruments + Infernal Devices series)! I mean who doesn't want to go into the city at night and kill demons? lol


  29. I would be a mermaid or if totally on land I'd be a were. Either a werecat (big cat) or a werewolf. :)

    books (dot) things (at) yahoo (dot) com

  30. Necromancer. Definitely. Because how great would it be to be able to raise people from long, long ago and hear their stories?! Plus think of the authors, painters, poets and great minds that could be raised. And there is always the ability to control an army of the dead. But I'm not evil so no harm there. :) (Plus I like the way that Kelley Armstrong + Laurel K. Hamilton write their necromancer characters.)

    email: Whittsterr@hotmail.com
    I retweeted this : twitter.com/ashmensch

  31. I think it would be interesting to be a shapeshifter. Looking like a human but having the the ability to shift into another form would be so cool.


  32. I would most likely be part of the Fae. Pretty creatures and they seem to have fun. Being a necromancer would be pretty awesome as well though... ! I just would NOT want to be a vampire, no drinking blood.. thanks! lol

    Thank you for the giveaway :)

  33. I would be a shifter because there powerful and you get a longer life span ;)

  34. I would be a cat shifter, because they are powerful and really cool.

    I would be a shapeshifter there powerful and you get a longer life span


    Loved the first book

  36. Right now I'm liking the idea of being a Walker like Mercy in the Patricia Briggs' series, and shapeshifting into a coyote.


  37. I would be a zombie so I could share the love and make other zombies to accompany me!


  38. i would be a shapeshifter. thanks for this awesome contest!


  39. That's a tough one! I'd like to be a fae with wings or a shapeshifter. There are traits of a bunch of supernaturals that I would love to have, lol. I guess I'll stick with the far with wings.
    I am a follower. Thanks for having such an awesome contest! :-)


  40. Hmm...I'm going with werewolf.

    Thanks for the giveaway!


  41. Thats a tough question! I'm gonna go with..a shapeshifter. I think it'd be cool to turn into a leopard. Vampire is cool too, but I'm not a big fan of blood drinking, lol.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    Twitter: @fangswandsfairy

  43. I would totally go for a shape shifter. That would be nice to get another aspect on the perspective of life.


  44. If I could be any paranormal creature, I would pick a vampire because they're ageless, immortal, own the night, and have strength and other powers depending on whose story you're reading.


  45. I would be an angel because I would love to fly and live in the sky. I just read a book with a vampire/angel and that was cool too. Thanks for the contest =)

  49. I would love to be a fairy of some kind...I've always loved Tinker Bell, lol!

    Email address:

  50. Well truth be told I guess it would be a vamp. Even though the thought of outliving loved ones kinda sucks(groan, no pun intended)I love the power they possess, it can be quite intoxicating.

    New follower, I don't know how the heck I've missed your blog it's fantastic! Caught you through Steph at Fangs Wands and Fairydust.

    Tomes Devotee

  51. duh! email-


    Paula ;)

  52. I would be a shapeshifter, but I would have a choice of being any animal I wanted to.

  53. Hmm, what paranormal creature.. I've love to be a shifter. Especially the kind that has to just touch or study an animal, then be able to change into that. So that way, I can try being several different animals. So I don't get bored, haha.

  54. I would love to be a shapeshifter, a raven one to be specific. I love the aerial games they play, besides having the ability to cross the barriers between the living and the dead. (Hugs)Indigo


  55. I'd want to be a fairy because I'd love to be able to fly and do some magic.

    tweeted too

  58. Great giveaway! Thanks a lot for the chance to win!

    If I could be any paranormal creature, I'd want to be a faerie mostly because I've fallen in love with them after reading The Iron King! Not to mention it would be pretty cool to have magical powers and live in the Nevernever.

  59. Hi,
    I would be a dhampyre..
    Dhampyres have all the powers of the vampire, but none of the weaknesses.
    They also have the desire to feed, not the need.
    A Dhampyre can survive without feeding on blood.


  60. If I could be any paranormal creature I'd be a witch or an angel! Ha talk about two extremes!! ;)



  61. Oh and I tweeted this!



  62. I would want to be a vampire for many reasons. One is I would want the super strength and speed. Also I'm more of a night person than day so being a vampire would fit my schedule. Also it's a well known fact that all vampires are hot so that would be a plus too....lol.


  63. Mermaid, because when I was young, I wanted to be a dolphin when I grew up, and it's the next best thing (:

    bratdownstairs at yahoo

  64. This comment has been removed by the author.

  65. I would either be a Nymph or a mermaid.....

    A nymph because I just love how carefree, playful and fun the are.

    Mermaid because I love swim and as I child i always want to be a mermaid...i still do =D


  66. 1.)If I could be a paranormal creature...hmmmm....I would probably be...don't laugh...probably an elve. They are just so small and adorable ugh I can't beleive I'm posting this I just really want this book!

  67. I'd want to be a dragon. I love the thought of flying through the air and being able to shoot flame from my mouth and nose.

    jen at delux dot com

  68. Since I was a little girl I had always loved vampires, so the answer to this question pretty much comes easy to me, I would like to be a vampire. I guess it's the entire mysterious, sexy and undead thing that comes off as badass. Either way, it would be more than amazing, you'll have time for everything and anything, to look into the future and depending on much you stay around the past too. I don't mind the blood, I just wouldn't want to be alone for my entire "life".

    linaramz at yahoo dot com

  79. I would love to be an angel, definitely. Angels are, well, angelic:)


  80. I think it would be cool to be a shifter because then you're still mostly human but have these special abilities to fly away or run away really fast depending on what animal you choose.


  81. A dragon! too much fun to be able to shift into something bigger than a house!

  82. I know it's unoriginal, but I would want to be a werewolf, because who wouldn't want to be able to change into a beautiful furry animal every full moon. Plus, most (male) werewolves are pretty hot.


  83. I would want to be an angel because they are beautiful or a vampire. I am a follower. Please enter me in contest. I would love to read these books. Tore923@aol.com

  86. I loved your review and so want to read this series now. :)
    As to the question:
    I would like to be one of the fae. Vampires love them and they are so kick butt, no one messes with them. Maybe fallen angels or dragons would like them to...hhmmm.


  87. I'd love to be fairy because I'm a fan of The Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa!

  89. I'd want to be a shapeshifter. I'd love to turn into a bird or dolphin--being a human has so many limits. xD


  90. I don't wish. I want to be a witch and be able to make all sorts of spells and potions.

    dorcontest at gmail dot com

  91. I tweeted this giveaway!!

    dorcontest at gmail dot com

  92. This is a tough question. Every time I read a new Paranormal with interesting and strong leads, I want to be what they are. However, if I must pick only one, I would want to be a werewolf. I love how they are strong, powerful, passionate and of course the ability to shift from human into wolf. Also, they have pretty much the entire supernatural world afraid of their awesomeness!! The only thing I would borrow from another supernatural being would have to be immortality. If I went with Kresley Cole's version of the werewolf I'd have it all :)

    Tweeted the contest:



  93. Right now I am totally into Fallen Angels, so perhaps one of those. :) I love the idea of being able to fly!

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  94. A witch! YOu're still (somewhat) human and normal, but you get powers!!


  95. I'd love to be an "empty one" from Paranormalcy. I love the idea that they glow with gold, liquid fire. Sounds awesome, although I wouldn't really want to be in Evie's shoes.


  96. I would love to be a mermaid

    nicoleashley2288 (at) yahoo.ca

  97. I would love to be the goddess of truth. why so I couldmarry one of the lords of the under world :) (cough cough) Torin


  98. Oh no...how to choose?! Well, I'm kind of obsessed with vampires....but I would rather be a werewolf or a succubus....but like a nice one. haha.
    Not the crazy life sucker...just suck the life out of ass holes! Sounds good to me.

    Of course you know I tweeted (with @camisadomind): http://twitter.com/camisadomind/statuses/24608159803

  99. A shifter, changing into anything is pretty cool.


  100. Hmm...I think I'd like to be a shifter.You're strong, have strong family/pack bonds (usually), and you live longer!

    Oh! Ok, I got it! :D MERMAID! That's paranormal, right? I think it is...
    Anyway, I LOVE to swim, and I've always loved the movie The Little Mermaid :) Plus, I think mermaids have pretty hair. :) I REALLY wish I were a mermaid!


  102. I would want to be a shapeshifter. I think you get to look human when you want to but still be in the paranormal world.

    melissagrantcpacfe at gmail dot com

  103. If I could be any paranormal creature I would be a Vampire no question about it. Okay the drinking blood part sounds gross but as someone once told me if I was a Vampire it wouldn't be gross to me....lol. Plus I would get to live forever and I could stay up all night (which before I had kids I used to do all the time). There is something about Vampires that has always fasinated me. Even before Louis de Pointe du Lac (Brad Pitt) and Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) made Vampires super sexy I was (To quote Stephanie Meyer's Twilight Novel) totally and irrevocably in love with them.

    What an awesome giveaway. I have been dying to get my hands on a copy of Hush, Hush. I have been driving my friends crazy with my need for it.

    I am an old blog follower.

    +1 I tweeted about this giveaway on Twitter (@skyla11377).


  104. Hmmmm. You know, I don't think I've ever really thought about it. Strangely enough the first thing to come to mind was "a griffin". Is that a paranormal creature? Would I really want to be one? Hmmmm... Let's go with a normal answer and say "Werewolf". LOL!

  109. I would definitely go with being a shapeshifter. Being able to morph into an animal or take on the appearance of another person is sooooo cool! :D


  110. I'd like to be a mindreader/controller. I mean, come on! You'd always know what everyone was thinking, and if you didn't like it, you could just change it!

    ellen_r_hudson @ yahoo . ca


  111. This is a hard one! I am going to go with fairy.


  112. An angel. (Are angels considered paranormal?) It doesn't matter. I want to be able to fly, so it's either angel or superhero. :)

  113. I would like to be a faerie. I've always thought of them as beautiful delicate magical creatures. Boy have my eyes been opened, but I want the POWER and then I can glamour myself to look any way I want. And supposedly I'd be more beautiful underneath my glamour. I don't think that's asking for much, but I must have wings! Sturdy ones, because I plan to kick some faery ass in some of these books! Hear that Keenan I'm coming for you!!!


  114. I'd want to be a werewolf because they're my favorite paranormal creatures. I think they're awesome.


  115. i would like to be a shadow. moving fast and never been toucht. be the darkness in light.

  116. I would be a witch/wizard hands down no questions asked. I've been obsessed with them for as long as I can remember. And they can use magic!



  117. I would be a witch! I mean if you're a witch, then you can turn yourself into anything or do anything!!!! But ya know, a good witch! :)
    Thanks a bunch! :)


  118. I'd be a vampire. To never age and be immoral would be quite fun! Thanks for the giveaway!

    ashleyziemer AT gmail DOT com

  119. I am torn - I love faeries as they are so beautiful and I love vampires because they are so intriguing to me... can I be a Vamp/faerie cross? LOL


    and posted on twitter - @snowdropdreams

  120. I would want to be a shapeshifter like Sam on the show True Blood. I think it would be fun to turn into almost any kind of animal whenever I felt like it.

  121. If I could be any paranormal, I would have to be something immortal. Immortality has always fascinated me!

    Thanks for the giveaway! :)
    pichipitch (at) gmail (dot) com

  122. I would be a warlock, like Magnus in the Mortal Instruments series...


  123. I'm torn between a mermaid and a shape shifter...how about a mermaid who can come out of the water whenever she wants?


  124. I would be a shape-shifter because I will be able to turn into anything I want. What else can be better than that?
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  125. I would love to be a werewolf. I think it would be amazing to run free through the woods, as well as, the ability to heal quickly and not get sick.


  126. hmmm...such a difficult question, as there are pros and cons to so many of them, but if I had to pick one, I'd go with a necromancer. Why? Well, my two favorite supernatural series star necromancers, The Anita Blake Vampire hunter series was never as cool as when she actually raised the dead, and in the Darkest Powers series there was nothing like proving you weren't hearing voices in your head than by raising the dead.

    jlynettes at hotmail dot com

  127. Great question! I would have to choose Faerie.

    BookNoise at gmail dot com

  128. Definitely a mermaid.


  129. That's a hard question. I suppose I would be a faery. Mermaid would be a close second.

    Well, my initial choice was werewolf, but that would be inconvenient. I think I'd be a fairie, more specifically, a caith-sidhe.

  131. I think I'd be just a good old-fashioned witch.

  132. I'd want to be fae - not the pretty, light and sparkly kind. High court dark fae. I love the fae in Melissa Marr, Holly Black and Karen Marie Moning's books...


  133. I would wish to be a Valkyrie--a Swan Maiden--with the gift of flight and a cloak of invisibility. I'd fly amid the darkness turning nightmares into daydreams of delight, bringing the downtrodden into the light.


  134. I would want to be a witch so that I could do a little bit of everything. Being immortal wouldn't be bad either as long as I wasn't 80 when I became immortal and am forced to live for eternity as a old lady. hehe :)

  135. OOOh oooh oooh! Goood question! I would either want to be a paranormal being like Lend from Paranormalcy.
    He is some sort of water/ shapeshifter thing-a-ma-bob! He is sweet as hell! He can shift into anyone, and it was awesome when he turned into an actor from a show the main character watched! i love him he is too cute! So if i was one of his kind....ya know....*wink wink!*

    or i recently just read Firelight and being a Draki would also be totally shweet! A decedent of Dragons....yes please!

    Thanks for the chance too win!!!!

  136. i think for me it would be a toss-up between a witch and a vampire....or a mixture of both! :)

  138. Why a vampire of course. Rawr. V--V


  139. Hmm I think I would like to be a faery. They have their own awesome world and powers, and they can use glamor which would be sooo handy! Plus, I want my own Puck =)

  140. I Would Be A Werecat.
    1. Because they are pretty
    2. Because they are really fast

    I'v always dreamed i was a cat when i was a kid. lol


  141. Oh I would like to be a Shadow hunter like the characters in the Motral Instrument series!

  142. I would be a vampress because vampires are so HOT right now and who wouldn't want me?

  143. I would like to be a shapeshifter, as in looks, not into animals. It would be so cool to be able to change the way you look so that in anysituation you could hide who you are, or what you are wearing.

  145. I'd be a werewolf. Plain and simple. There's a lot of different werewolf stories now, and so many different versions of the werewolf. It's always been a favorite of mine though; I can't let it go. :)


  146. I've thought about this before and I can't decide between a vampire or a shifter. I guess I'd have to go with a dhampire.

  147. I think faery. While the fae can be evil and dark and cruel. They can also be beautiful and happy and light filled.

  148. I would like to be a ghost. To come back and haunt the people who ticked me off and i could see what people REALLY think about me.

  149. I twittered your contest

  150. I would like to be a werewolf... because in most stories they each have their mate, the one they're meant to be with and I just love that :)

  151. I would be a vampire so I could live forever and do all the things I want to do!

  152. I think I'd like to be a vampire because they don't age and get to see so many wonderful things in their lifetimes. I'm not too fond of the sun anyway...


  153. I would be a shapeshifter.

  154. I'd like to be a good witch so I could do good magic.



  155. Unicorn! ;) or an angel. Preferably an angel with a unicorn for a best friend.

    Really want to win this for a friend! :D

  156. Vampire was the first thing that popped into my mind, but once I thought about it, I think I would pick shapeshifter, the kind that can shift to anything, I think that would be the coolest thing ever! Thanks! Artesia at comcast dot net

  157. A shifter! Shifter books are my favorite in paranormal world so why not join them? :)

    nalynboni AT gmail DOT com

  158. Probably a fairy - they're beautiful, powerful, and intelligent. tressa(dot)sherman(at)hotmail(dot)com

  159. I'll go with werewolf. I've always liked going out at night better than during the day.

  160. I think I would want to be a Fairy. I'd want to be one that could fly though!

  161. A were of some sort, assuming I could control the change and got to live longer than normal. I wouldn't want to be immortal and I like the sun :)

    thejoyofthejoyofcooking at hotmail dot com

  162. thanks for this amazing giveaway!

    That's a tough question 'cause ther is so many to choose from :) I'd have to say a witch, so I could have all that neat power and wouldn't need to turn into an animal or drink blood


  163. I would pick a vampire so i could live forever and be able to travel the world.

  164. I think I would like to be an Elemental. There aren't that many books out there on them, but I've always been intrigued by them.

  165. Hi Tori! Great giveaway=)

    If you could be any kind of paranormal creature, what would you be, and why?

    I would be definitely a shifter. I just think it's the coolest thing shifting into an animal but still having your human form when you want;) Best of both worlds!

    Thank You!

    Hard question to answer lol
    But, I think I'd love to be a werewolf or a werecat ... one of the great beasts to feel their speed, strength and affinity with nature.

  167. I would like to be a shape shifter. At first I thought vampire, but there is that whole bloody murder thing...

  168. I'd like to be able to become invisible, because it seems like an easy paranormal power to manage. no blood or gore like vampires and zombies!

    meredithfl at gmail dot com

  169. I would want to be a faerie because they have glamor, and some can even fly (depending on what myth you're looking at). There's always
    beens something about faeries that have enamored me since I was a little kid. )



  170. This is probably an old answer. But I want to be a dhampir, just to see what it's like and I would want to be dhampir in Vampire Academy. They get to go into the son, but have enhanced senses and strength. PLus Rose is so badass :3


  171. Heeh, I am not eligible for this but I'd like to answer the question anyways/!
    I think I'd love to be a faery, because they are magical creatures, they are pretty and can be naughty too! lol
    And if you watch True Blood... Vampires find them irresistible! lol

  172. If I could be any paranormal creature I would be a shape-shifter because I think it would be fun to be able to take on the shape of any thing you wanted


  173. I think I'd want to be a shapeshifter. I'd love to be able to take on another form.


  174. If I could be any supernatural creature, I'd want to be a mermaid. The reason? Out of all supernatural creatures, they are the most privet, the most secluded and they can travel to any coast in the world they please, they live a life of pure freedom.


  175. I would be a Vampire, just like on Vampire Diaris where they have the ring that lets them walk out in the sun. Vampires get to live forever whats better than that?


  176. I'd like to be a mermaid because they live in water (duh!) and I'm a huge fan of oceans! I think there should be more mermaid stories out there...

    sarahdc22 (at) gmail (dot) com

  177. I would like to be a werewolf if I had the chance.


  178. I would totally choose shapeshifter! Awesome!

  180. Definitely a faery. Having an intimate connection with nature would be fabulous.


  181. I'd want to beeee a shape shifter because it's like really cool and useful :D


  182. I would be a werewolf. I love wolves and I would love to run among them. I would escape to the woods and experience nature through the eyes of a wolf. Plus, there strong and fast and furry.


  183. Definitely werewolf. It would be so cool to be fast and powerful and see and hear so well.

  184. Great giveaway....I think it would be awesome to be a shape shifter. That way i can be what i want to be when i want to!

  185. I would love to be a vampire. Eternal youth, super strength, long life. I'd especially love to be a vampire in the BDB world. ;P

    If I could be a paranormal creature, I would probably be a guardian angel. This answer actually isn't because of the book Hush, Hush, though it is a very amazing book. A guardian angel is strong, protective and cares for others around them. Looking just like an ordinary human being is the plus side; you never have to hide yourself and be afraid of the night, sunlight or other natural weather conditions. The wings don't even have to visible to the human eye! No one could know the difference between a human and a guardian angel, and I would have the ability to save others in danger; placing a good warmth into my heart.

  187. If I could be any paranormal creature I would be a witch. Witches are powerful and beautiful. They are fearless and they love deeply. It would be amazing to have the powers of a witch, as well as the amazing qualities most posess.

  188. I would really like to be a witch. :)

  189. As if after reading Hush Hush there is another option :) The painful mysteries and abilities of the fallen angels has me hooked. Sign me up, scars and all :)

  190. I would be an angel because I've always been fascinated with them and believe that we all have someone watching over us. I like doing good things and looking out for the ones I love and care about.

    Thanks for hosting this contest! :)
