Follow Friday (12) and Book Blogger Hop (9)

Hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read, Follow Friday allows bloggers to connect and discover new blogs. To participate, click the link, follow the rules, and follow new blogs! This week's blogs to follow are: We Fancy Books and A Novella's Tale.

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?

A. Jodi Picoult would be one because her books are so deep and smart and ridiculously heartbreaking sometimes. Janet Evanovich would be another because Stephanie Plum just rocks my world! And Richelle Mead would be the last one. Talking about Georgina makes my world go round.. so I bet I would have a lot to say to her about that series! If I could pick more, I might pick Jennifer L. Armentrout because she has some seriously exciting stuff in the works right now!! And maybe I'll pick a guy.. Nicholas Sparks because I've been reading his books for years now and adore almost all of them. :o)

Hosted by Crazy For Books in the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love of the written word! Click the picture on the side to visit her website for more info.

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

A. For me this one is sci-fi. I'm cool with paranormal romance and some urban fantasy, but straight up science fiction just doesn't do it for me! I just really like normal people and vampires.. lol. Authors like Stephen King don't work for me either very much. I've never really liked his stuff. Wish I did, but I just definitely do not. OH, I also don't much like historical fiction either. I don't mind reading some Jane Austen, which is maybe weird, but I don't books written now set in long ago. If they time-travel there.. that's a different story.. lol. I know. Strange.

Leave your links and I will try to visit!! Happy Friday!!
And check out my giveaways in the top right corner :o)

  6. I actually like sci-fi a lot. A lot of people seem to be surprised about that!

    Here's my answer:

  7. Hey Mickey, just stoppin by. I've only read books by Richelle Mead and that was recently. I just finished Frostbite from the VA series, I totally love it. Rose is awesome ;)

  8. I agree with sci-fi. I love paranormal, but sci-fi is just too out there most times for me. I'm a new follower. My answers are up at Coffee Table Reviews.

  9. I love how subtly you answered more than three authors. ;)

  10. Hi there, I'm hopping through and following you.

  15. Hey, Hopping through!

    I have seen a lot of people pick Janet Evanovich as an author to meet. I am ashamed to say I haven't heard of her...? I'm going to google her right now :)



  16. Hi. Happy Belated FF from a new follower. Interesting choices.


  17. I am not a sci-fi person either. I also get creeped out by Stephen King books.
