Love-a-Thon 2016: Mashing hobbies with books



The Love-a-Thon is a blogging event to spread the love among other bloggers! It is hosted by the wonderful Alexa at AlexaLovesBooks, Cee at TheNovelHermit, Hazel at StayBookish, and Mel at TheDailyProphecy.


The second blog event is to mash-up one of our favorite hobbies with our love for books, so I thought, why not join up muscle cars with some light reading? And of course I'll show off my furry babies.



Dodge Challengers


I've been in love with Dodge Challengers since 2009. I mentioned in my Q&A that I would listen about cars all day, but I won't be getting in any that don't have muscle.

Some people have told me that this Corvette and that Ferrari could go faster. I'm not doubting them for a moment, but as soon as your car starts passing mine, I'll just slam you into a wall and keep going. You'll be a heap of metal, listening to the rev of my engine as I pass.

My (or as Boo Thang reminds me, *our*) Challenger is named Leila, and she is beautiful! I'm constantly jealous of her new shoes (black and red rims) and when she gets going, she actually sounds angry. Boo Thang compares my angry face to a duckling.

Not cool, bro. 

But I love Challengers and so my collection of Hot Wheels has been growing for years. Green is my favorite color on one of these babies, so I gathered my three favorites! From far back: 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8, Dodge Challenger Concept, and 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8.

Dogs who may not read


I usually toss photos of my Baby Boy Chug on the blog, and while he reads lit agency manuscripts with me (he always wants the newest stories to brag about to his friends), he doesn't like the printed stuff. 

Baby Girl Shadow loves to read books though! Or maybe read is a stretch because normally she is just the best dog to photograph. Chug can be good, but it's in rare moments when he's half asleep. This girl is always beautiful and sits still when asked!

The other members of the house are Maya Papaya and Princess Sammie (I'll hashtag them on Twitter more than you'll see pictures of them. They prefer sleeping to posing). 

What other hobbies do you have outside of books? Be sure to follow the hosts for the latest information!

  2. What a lucky lucky dog... Lucky you. I don't particularly enjoy car talks... My Dad is a huge car fan tho so he'd just talk about it everyday if he could.

    1. Furry babies are wonderful! And as often as they lay on my laptop while writing or on my books while reading, they clearly love words as much as we do :)

  4. I loved seeing your pup! And I enjoy seeing photos of pets with books. It's always so cute, though there are definitely times when they try to get in the way of your reading ;)

    1. Aww thank you! And yes, always. My baby boy will try to sit on my lap if I'm typing at my desk, or if I have a book or the laptop with me in bed, he'll try to lay on them. He's so needy haha!

  5. One of my favorite things: seeing pets + books in the same picture. It just sends me over the mood because cuteness!

    1. They are so precious! Except when the puppy decides to lick the pages of the book, then it's about teaching them the value of the written word haha.
