Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee each week and is a joint effort between all of us bloggers to get more followers. Plus, each week a different question is asked, and I get to answer it! So here goes:
Q. Name 3 authors that you would love to sit down and spend an hour or a meal with just talking about either their books or get advice on writing from?
Me: First and foremost, Robin McKinley. She is the first author I that I loved so much I read everything she had written. I didn't care what it was about. If Robin wrote it, I read it. And I was absolutely never disappointed. Her writing is lovely and lyrical, and I like to think she speaks in the same way she writes, which may or may not be true. :) Next, I would want to dine with Juliet Marillier. I found Ms. Marillier relatively recently (as in 2 years ago), but I have been entranced by her writing since. Both authors have a poetic and very beautiful style, which I am obviously attracted to. Also, they both almost exclusively write with female heroines, and they are always strong, real girls (never not a plus.) My third author would have to be J.K. Rowling. Ms. Rowling wrote the world's biggest series, but stays so humble and real. Plus, I'd just have to learn how on earth she planned Harry Potter so intricately so far ahead! It blows my mind every time I think about it.
Book Blogger Hop is a weekly par-tay for book bloggers to connect! It's hosted by Crazy for Books (follow that link to get to this week's Blogger Hop post!) and lasts Friday through Monday every week! And we get another exciting question, here goes:
Q. What’s the ONE GENRE that you wish you could get into, but just can’t?
Me: I would seriously love to love mystery novels. Can't. Just can't. I don't know why, but I can't seem to like them, no matter how many I try. I can do a book that more solidly fits into another genre, but has mystery (as, obviously, most books have SOME kind of mystery), but never a book branded just as mystery. Poo.
Wellllll. That's it! Feel free to post links to your Follow Friday or Blogger Hop posts and I'll check them out! Have a fine weekend all!
