Follow Friday #8

Hey there!

For those who don't know, Follow Friday is a blog hop hosted by the super-duper awesome Parajunkee & Alison Can Read! It's a great way to meet new people and expand your list of friends over Blogger, and it's really easy to join, too! :)


All you have to do is:
  1. (Required) Follow the Follow My Book Blog Hosts (Parajunkee & Alison Can Read)
  2. (Required) Follow the featured blogger of the week. (We Fancy Books & A Novella's Tale)
  3. Put your blog name and URL in the Linky thing. 
  4. Grab the the button up there and place it in a post (so people can say hi in the comments!).
  5. Follow, follow, follow as many as you can, as many as you want, or just only a few. The whole point is to make new friends and find new blogs! Also, don't just follow, comment and say hi. Another blogger might not know you are a new follower if you don't say "HI!"
  6. If someone comments and follows you, share the love! Follow them back ;)
  7. If you're new to the Follow Friday hop, comment and let Parajunkee & Alison know, so they can stop by and check out your blog! 
Q: Name 3 authors that you would love to sit down and spend an hour or a meal with, just talking about their books or getting advice on writing from.

A: Only three? Well, that's really hard but I'll try my best! :)
  1. Cassandra Clare (author of The Mortal Instruments series and The Infernal Devices series): Because she's one of my favourite authors of all time and the way she creates her characters is amazing!
  2. Lauren DeStefano (author of The Chemical Garden series): Because she has probably the most beautiful and haunting prose I've ever read and I read a lot.
  3. Tahereh Mafi (author of Shatter Me): Because her blog is hilarious and I can't wait to read her first book when it comes out! Plus, she seems like an awesome person to chill with! 
What about you? What awesome authors would you like to have coffee with? :)

HAPPY FOLLOW FRIDAY!

  3. Cassandra Clare is a great choice! I just read and reviewed Clockwork Angel and I absolutely LOVED it! When I originally read CoB a couple years back I wasn't into it but after reading CA I figured I'd give it another try and I'm definitely liking it better the second time around! I'm a new follower! Happy hopping!

  20. It's odd and sort of sad almost, that I didn't think of Cassandra Clare, when I think that's she's one of the most amazing and talented ya author's out there today. Also, Lauren de Stefano, as well. Wither was so unique and I absolutely loved it or well, what I've read of it so far. :)

    Happy Friday Hops, have a grrreat weekend!
