Book Blogger Hop 13

The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Jennifer at Crazy for Books.

This week's question is:

Do you have pets?

Yes! Until recently, had anyone asked, the answer would have been "no" but I recently got a 10-gallon fishtank. My first set of fish, sadly, didn't make it. They were cherry barbs that I had named after Harry Potter characters. My new fish are fancy-tailed guppies - Kirk and Spock, and Chekhov and Sulu. It's a bachelor tank, because I don't want the tank taken over by guppy offspring. Science-fiction seemed to offer the largest number of male names to pick from.


  1. lol LOVE the names! Both Harry Potter and ESPECIALLY the Star Trek...not nearly enough people appreciate Kirk Spock Chekhov and Sulu that you've mentioned them I think I'll check out the movie again.... :)

    Happy Friday! I'm a new follower! If you want, check me out if you get a chance!

  2. Thank you for stopping by my place. Ironically your answer to today's hop question was a similar conversation I recently had with my 90 yr old Mom during a visit. My first "pets" growing up were goldfish that my Dad had bought, approx 10 large ones in a big tank. Never having them before, he thought that they might be hungry and fed them the whole container of food. They didn't survive the night.

  3. Sounds cool! Love the names you gave them. hehe I am terrible with any kind of tank/cage dwelling animal. I tend to be horrible and cleaning them. We have a turtle but I'm thinking of giving him away because I just don't give him enough attention!

    Thanks for stopping by my friday memes as well!

  4. Great name choices for the fishies! I had an iguana named Atreyu and a hamster named Bastian when I was young. I was obssessed with The Never Ending Story. New Follower!

    Thanks for stopping by Book Sake.

  5. Thanks for stopping by! Your right about sci-fi having a wealth of names!

  6. I like the idea of sci-fi-named fish!! :)

    Happy Hopping!

  7. Hi, new follower! Cute names for the fish! You can find my Friday memes here: Pawing Through Books

  8. Neat fish names. :)

    I have NO pets.

    Stop by my blog this weekend for book giveaways and 99 cent E-books.

    There will be two different posts from two different authors for the giveaways and E-books.


  9. I've only ever had one fish, not a full tank of them. Great names. Do the males get aggressive with each other (I doubt it, but I think certain types like betas do)?

    Here's my hop:

  10. They don't really get aggressive with each other... they get cranky if they haven't been fed in a while - guppies love to eat, so the only real danger is overfeeding them, since they'll enthusiastically chow down almost everything you give them.
