Blog Hop ~ 07/22

So technically it's Thursday night where I am, but I want to be ahead of the game for once!


Every Friday, Parajunkee hosts Follow my Book Blog Friday! So welcome to another stop on this hop!


It's fairly simple- follow the hosting blog, the feature blog, and then use the links to discover new blogs to follow! And if someone follows you, be kind and follow back! It's a fun way to find new bloggers to read :)

This week's question is: Okay so,
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?


  1. Suzanne Collins; I think she's brilliant. The Hunger Games series is one of the best I've ever read, and she is an incredibly talented and creative woman. I would love to discuss the books and really pick her brain for any other tidbits she could add to my HG experience.
  2. Lauren DeStefano; She strikes me as the kind of person I could just sit down and talk with. I adored Wither, and can't wait for more so I'd love to chat about that as well!
  3. Gail Carson Levine; I've been reading her books for years now, and I feel like I've grown up with her novels. I appreciate her as an author so much, as well as for her stories, and I'd like to be able to express that to her.






Now, another blog hop is hosted by Crazy-for-Books! This is a Friday-Monday blog which lasts this week from 7/22-7/25!

What’s the ONE GENRE that you wish you could get into, but just can’t 

I just can't get into contemporary fiction. Most books which are set in the present day- I just don't find them that appealling. I love anything make-believe and unrealistic. I have a few exceptions (Sarah Dessen books are some!) but for the most part I just don't like it as a genre.

Actually there was a time when I could only read contemporary fiction, because I didn't like anything not normal in my books. :D But luckily that has changed. :)

Even though paranormal is so incredibly popular, I still love contemporary fiction. I try to alternate contemporary with paranormal so that I get a nice variety.

Glad to have found you via the Hop!

Alison Can Read said...

Hopping through. I'd love to meet Collins. I'd like writing tips - on writing action scenes and world-building.

Since last week's pie chart about where I get my books was so popular, I thought I'd share what types of books I do read. Please stop by to see which genres I don't typically read.
