Blog Hop & Follow Friday - July 22

Happy Happy Friday! I am participating in two different blog "hops/follows" this week - so welcome :)

First, there is the Book Blogger Hop hosted by crazy-for-books.com, another great book blog to check out...her question this week is:


What's the one genre that you wish you could get into, but just can't?

I am just getting into the paranormal romance stuff, and while I find it to be better than I thought, I would like to try to get a little more into it. I wish I could do sci/fi, but it just isn't my thing...or fantasy. BOO!


Friday's are also Follow Friday over at parajunkee.com and while I am not that into paranormal young adult lit, her blog is awesome :) This week's question is:

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 about writing from?

I would most definitely want to sit down with Roald Dahl to get all his pointers on storytelling...he tells one amazing story! I would want to sit down with Nancy E. Turner to get her pointers on writing historical fiction, I am not sure anyone does it better than her. And I would want to sit down with T.J. Koll to learn the ins and outs of the writing process.

If I could have private tutoring sessions with all three of them, I could create some amazing writing!

Have a great weekend, and HAPPY READING!

  7. Hi, New Follower:) Great picks. I will have to look up T.J. Koll. I had a hard time thinking of what author's with the question this week. Happy Friday.

  8. Hopping through. Roald Dahl is such a great choice. One of the best ever children's writers. I'd love to get tips. He seems like a strange person though.

  9. Paranormal's another flavor of fantasy. 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.
