Blog Hops: Wishing for a Daemon

Today's Follow Friday question over at Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read is:

His Dark Materials Trilogy (The Golden Compass; The Subtle Knife; The Amber Spyglass)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?

I would LOVE to have a daemon like the His Dark Materials series by Philip Pullman. It would be pretty awesome. I can't help but wonder what mine would be!

Have you read the His Dark Materials series? What do you think your daemon would be?



Book Blogger HopJennifer over at Crazy For Books asks:

“Non-book-related this week!! Do you have pets?”

Do I ever! :) I have 7 cats and 2 dogs. Madison, Makaila, Maci, Cammie, Silas, Zeus, Mollie, Daisy, and Charlie.

  4. New follower here. That is such an awesome answer I totally didn't think of that!!! I think If I had a daemon it would be.... Gosh I don't know what mine would be. Maybe it would be a howling turtle since that's the name of my blog lol.

  5. I didn't even think of a daemon! I'm so sad I didn't. I'd absolutely love to have one. Great answer! I want to go and change my answer now, lol.

  6. I would like a daemon, too! A big ape. Or a dog. A big dog!

  7. I thought of a daemon too! I think mine would be a dog. A great big mastiff or something.

  8. ohh daemon! I wish I could have one. I would want him to be something really big, or a bird, but knowing me, I would probably get some kind of dog! No ideas what yours would be?

  9. I've got book one of His Dark Materials, but still need to pick it up and give it a read. Daemons do sound pretty interesting from what I gather, though! :)

    Have a great weekend!

    Peter - I think I would be a dog, too!

  11. Oh, Lari and A Beautiful Madness would be dogs, too. We must be dog people!

  19. I read the comment, I really did. Heck, I read PP. I still pictured a DEMON. And thought, hmm, well there's a daring person. Wishing the evil demons were hanging around. But alas, I my brain finally caught up. Yeah, yeah. It's late. Shhhh. It would be pretty cool having a little DAEMON. New follower here. Would love it if you popped by for a visit!

  23. Hopping through. I haven't read it yet. Great answer. It's different. Mine is at http://www.alaskanbookcafe.com/

  24. Wow, you guys would have awesome daemons. I do highly recommend the His Dark Materials series to those of you who haven't read it yet.

    ReplyDelete
  25. 9 furry pets! Wow, that seems like a lot.

    There used to be a "What is Your Daemon" quiz on the Golden Compass movie site, but I can't find it now. It was really beautiful, with lots of dark gold clockwork animation.

  26. Interesting choice =) Here's mine.

    Happy Friday!

  27. Thanks for stopping by! I really like your blog layout and design. I don't know how I would feel about demons roaming around...

    That is a lot of cats! They are cuddly though :)

  28. Ooh, demons! I think that would actually be pretty cool -- I mean, they're dangerous, fun, and totally wicked! Everyone would have a case of paranoia with them roaming around, but at least there would never be a boring moment. ;)

    I haven't read those books before, but it seems like something I would! Maybe I'll pick them up!

    Thanks so much for stopping by, Jennifer! I'm following you back for sure!

    Hope you have an awesome weekend! :)

  38. Okay, so I might have to read the book to get the reference, so I can't answer you're daemon question. I do like your section on movie adaptions though (big fan of The Hunger Games). Oh, and love the name Zeus for a pet.
