Blog Hop and Follow Friday (4/15)

Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Crazy for Books!
The question this week is:
 "Pick a character from a book you are currently reading or have just finished and tell us about him/her."
I am currently reading The Gathering (Darkness Rising, Book 1) by Kelley Armstrong. The main girl is Maya. I'm not too far into the book yet but some interesting things about Maya is that she is Native American but doesn't know anything about her heritage - she was adopted as a baby. She lives on an island in Vancouver in a medical research town where her dad is the park warden for the national park surrounding the town. Maya loves animals and takes in ones that are hurt - who will surprisingly fast in her presence.  
I don't know much about her since it is still kinda a mystery but she is a very interesting character and I can't wait to see how Armstrong develops her.

The question this week is:
Do you have anyone you can discuss books with IRL? Tell us about him/her. 
I have several people that I can discuss books with IRL. My twin sister being the main one. We both love to read so I'm always just passing my books on to her. She might start helping me with this blog if she ever reads anything that I haven't already read. 
Also, one of my teacher friends loves to read the same books I read. I'm always passing stuff on to her as well. She is waiting very impatiently patiently for me to bring her Wolfsbane. 
Another person that I know IRL that I can discuss books with is Lindsay from The Violet Hour. I have known Lindsay since high school and it's great to have someone I know now book blogging too! I think we are the only two book bloggers in WV. Kinda sad, huh?
So, there's my IRL book buddies. I couldn't leave any of them out!

I haven't heard of The Gathering but it sounds interesting. And that's so fun that you have lots of book buddies. My sister is a reader, too, but her thing is more non-fiction and nutrition books. They have a little less plot than I'm used to but it's always good to get recommendations out of my normal YA interests. :)
Happy Friday!

Maya sounds interesting. I can't wait to hear your final thoughts about the book.

On another note, I think it is sad that she doesn't know her heritage. I think that is really important to any person/character.
