Book Blogger Hop and Follow Friday (12)

Follow Friday is a really fun way to network your blog and meet some other really cool bloggers in the process! This weekly event is hosted at Parajunkee's View! The featured blogger is Nicki J Markus!

Q: The magic book fairy pops out of your cereal box and says "you and your favorite character (from a book of course) can switch places!" Who are you going to switch with?

A: Well I just went to Josephine Angelini's signing of Starcrossed, a book I absolutely loved. So right now, as of today, I would like to switch places with Helen, the main character. Since Starcrossed is a trilogy, I'm super excited to see her grow into herself. But Starcrossed was so fun because she got to discover her abilities. She also discovered so much about her history and where she came from. And who would not want to be fated for Lucas Delos. Gorgeous!

The Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love for the written word. This incredibly awesome weekly event is hosted by Jennifer at Crazy for Books!

Q: Who is the one author you are dying to meet?

A: I can only choose one? There are so many I would love to meet! If I had to choose just a few I would start with Libba Bray because I love her Gemma Doyle series and I'm dying to read Beauty Queens. I would love to meet Melissa de la Cruz (which I'm going to this month!) because I love the Blue Bloods series and I'm super excited about her new book, Witches of East End! Then I would have to say Richelle Mead because her Vampire Academy series is AMAZING!!!!

Hopping by to say hello! I also think it would be cool to meet the authors you named. :)

I've heard such good things about Starcrossed. I need to pick that one up. :)
I think Melissa de la Cruz is coming to my library this summer but I hadn't read her books so I wasn't going to go. Maybe I'll have to check those out, too.

Seems everyone is having trouble picking just one author. I don't know who I'd choose -- some many creative geniuses!

Marla said...

Old follower hopping through. Love the mushroom theme! I couldn't pick just one, either, and I'm lucky that one of the authors on my list is coming to my area next month!

caffeinejunkie said...

I have yet to read Starcrossed but I hear good things. I also enjoyed your answer for the Book Blogger Hop. Libba Bray seems like she would be a ton of fun to hang out with. New follower :-)

Old follower hopping by to visit! Richelle Mead sounds like an excellent choice--I like her work, plus I hear she's very nice in person.

Howard Sherman said...

Wow! Every answer I’ve read is a great one. Some have been surprising, too.

The one author I have to meet before I die? Tricky question! It took me a long time – much longer than usual – to come up with an answer.

Who’s that author I’m dying to meet?

Hop this way to find out my roguish answer – http://www.howardsherman.net

Hi, new follower!

I'm also dying to read Beauty Queens. Like, I get upset that I'm not reading it RIGHT NOW.

Many bloggers seem to have trouble picking just one author - I don't blame you; it is hard!

Lauren B said...

Haven't heard of these before. They sound great
Thanks for stopping by.

Hi! I'm returning your visit- I followed you back. I can tell from your answers that we like a lot of the same books!
I am waiting for a copy of Starcrossed from the library.
I didn't meet Libba Bray in person but I saw her at an event and she is hilarious. Beauty Queens is excellent, BTW!

Jez said...

I'd read the short stories written by the three authors you wrote, and btw, they're superb! Have a nice weekend!
