Follow Friday

This week's Follow Friday (hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read) features Book Savvy Babe and The Bursting Bookshelf.

The question is: What superhero is your alter ego?

This is a hard question for me to answer because I didn't grow up following comics and superheros. Jacqueline Carey's Phedre no Deluanay from her first Kushiel series is definitely a superhero in my book, and she actually is writing a series of books about a character known as Santa Olivia who is like a superhero to the town where she lives. So...basically Jacqueline Carey's strong, kick-ass female characters are my alter-egos.

If you don't know them, I highly recommend you check them out. The character, setting, and plot complexity is intense without being overwhelming; there's unbelievable (in a good way) action and adventure; and love does conquer all but almost never in ways you imagine.


  1. I didn't know what to answer either. My mind went BLANK. This week's question is tough, and I can't believe I answered "Raphael" from Ninja Turtles. Too late to edit!!! I don't even know why Raphael popped into my mind... haha!

  5. I haven't heard of this series, but will be checking them out on GR per your suggestion! I also had a hard time coming up with an answer this week (ended up being totally unoriginal) but like you I didn't read comics or really get into superheroes growing up.
