Book Blogger Hop & Follow Friday (1)

Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Jennifer at 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! This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books! It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs to read! So visit Crazy-for-Books to grab the logo, post about the Hop on your blog, and start HOPPING through the list of blogs that are posted in the Linky list there!

This week's question:

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

I actually read a variety of genres, so this question is hard. But I think I'd have to choose chick lit. I've only read a few books in this genre, namely because most of the synopses that I've read don't hold my interest. However, I have lots of friends that read and love chick lit books, and I do wish I could discuss them.

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee and Allison Can Read. Visit either of their blogs for complete rules of the following fun!

This week's question:

"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?"

This is so very tough! I would have to say Terry Goodkind, because he has a very interesting philosophy on life and the world he built and details in his books are incredible. Then there is J.R. Ward. I might be a tad (okay, very) addicted to the Black Dagger Brotherhood books. I also love her writing style. Last but certainly not least, I would choose J.K. Rowling. The Harry Potter books continue to be amazing every time I reread them, and even though the last movie has come out, I'm still not ready to let the characters and the world go.

What are your answers? Please leave a comment or a link to your blog!


  1. Very nice answers. New follower. Come visit me. Just hopping on through.

  2. I too picked JR. She seems very cool and I'd love to try and bribe her for BDB info. I'm your newest follower and would love for you to visit me when you get a chance.

  3. OMG I <3 the BDB SO MUCH. :-) Great choice.

    New follower :-) Happy Friday!

  4. Nice answers! I'm surprised that you aren't that into chick-lit! But I also chose J.K. Rowling! It would be so interesting to try and get a peak inside her head. (And I'm pretty sure she's actually a wizard.) New follower! Happy Hopping!

  5. I have a love/hate relationship with Chick Lit, as in I usually either love it to death or hate it completely. I would also love to sit down with J.K. Rowling! That would be an amazing conversation. :)

  6. Returning your follow! I see you picked JK as well. :P I would love to meet JR Ward as well. The Black Dagger Brotherhood is one awesome series.

    Have a good weekend! :)

  7. Good answer. I have to admit that chick-lit has never appealed to me at all. I have a few friends who enjoy them but they just aren't for me.

  8. Hi,
    I do read chicklit`, but I do not like them all.
    Stopping by for the blog hop.
    Have a wonderfull weekend!

  9. Hi & Happy Friday!

    I am a new follower.

    My FF,

    Have a nice weekend :)

  10. Happy Friday! New follower here :-) The name of your blog made me smile. I'm reading a book right now "Portrait of a Spy". It's great by the way & the author is one of the three I picked to answer the FF question.

  11. New Follower. I can't get into chick-lit either. Fantasy is mostly my thing.

    Yup, almost everyone chose J.K. Rowling, even me. I'm not the least bit shocked. That woman is a genius. We're all not ready to let them go.

  12. Hopping through. I would definitely choose JK too. I am also interested in JR Ward. I've only read the first BDB book but I loved it.

  13. To be honest, I don't read Chick-Lit at all. I found the few books that I did read to be demeaning and derogatory toward women - I know it is quite paradoxical.

    Here's my Blog Hop

  14. hi,

    I'm a new follower from Parajunkee's Follow Friday. I also chose J.K. Rowling. =)

    No chick lit for me either! Too much fluff!

  16. Great picks! I'd love to sit in the HP world for just a moment! I'm a new follower. My answers are up at Coffee Table Reviews.

  17. Nice choices! JR Ward is a popular pick for today's question, so much so that I'm inspired to pick up some of her stuff! You can check out who I chose over at Fuzzy.Coffee.Books if ya like!
    Have a great weekend!

  19. I'd love to meet JK Rowling too. The Harry Potter books are amazing. It's too bad we're only allowed three picks, or I would have added her to my list! :)

    New follower.

    I hope you'll take the time to check out my Follow Friday post!

  20. Great Picks!!!!

    Happy Firday!! New Follower!!

  21. Seeing lots of JK Rowlings this week! For me that's a definite given! Wouldn't ever pass on the chance to meet her! Hopefully with a 7 book limit to signing! ;)

    Thanks for visiting/following my blog! Apparently I wasn't already following you, but I am now!

    Have a GREAT weekend!

    NEW Follower :)

  22. Hi! I'm a new follower. :)

    Great choices! I have J.K. Rowling on my list too and J.R. Ward is definitely on her way up, but I've only read three books so far. Of course, I loved them though, lol.

    Happy weekend! My full answer can be found here!

  23. I'm not too fond of chick lit either, but occasionally I'll read some as a break from "heavier" genres.

    Glad to have found you via the Hop!

  24. What a gorgeous blog! I love it - it is so inviting and just perfect! I am a new follower!
    Like you, I love a variety of genres, so this was a bit hard for me, but I picked Historical Romance.

  25. Hey! New FF follower here.

    J.K. Rowling is definitely a solid choice for a lot of book lovers :D Awesome picks.

  26. I don't read a lot of chicklit either. When I do, I'm really picky about what I chose. 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.

  27. I guess I've read a chick-lit book or two, but mostly I read YA.

    I've met J.K. Rowling! She did a booksigning at the bookstore I used to work. The crowds were simply unbelievable! She was exhausted, but she totally pulled it together for the fans. What a trooper. I'd love to meet her again under less stressful circumstances.

  28. Thanks for stopping by. Following you back.

  29. Thanks for dropping by @ We Fancy Books *waves*

    Following you now :)

  30. Hi. Happy Belated FF from a new follower. Interesting choices; lots of JK Rowling fans out there.
