Book Blogger Hop #16 & Fun Friday #5

As always, the Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jen over @ Crazy-for-Books.

**Since Jen couldn't get the post up this week, her blog BFF Lori over at Lori's Reading Corner is hosting Book Blogger Hop!**

This week's question is:

"Who is the one author that you are dying to meet?"

My answer: To be honest, I don't have just one author that I'm dying to meet. As of right now, I would love to meet JK Rowling, Stephenie Meyer, Cassandra Clare, and Gwen Hayes. Believe me, those are only my top favorites; that is not even one-eighth of the list that's forming in my head. I would really love to meet any author if I got the chance, since I've never met one before :).

What author would you want to meet?

**Since Blogger's GFC is on and off lately, you can follow me via GoodReads and/or Twitter!**
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is a meme that one of my really good blogging friends, Destiny @ Green Lillipads, started, and I thought it was a really awesome idea! You just post a book, CD, song, movie, etc. that you think is really cool for that week :). This week's cool-spotlight is on:


Hate List
By Jennifer Brown
Publishing year: 2009
Genres: Young Adult, Realistic Fiction, Coming of Age, Romance, Some Action

Synopsis (from goodreads.com): Five months ago, Valerie Leftman's boyfriend, Nick, opened fire on their school cafeteria. Shot trying to stop him, Valerie inadvertently saved the life of a classmate, but was implicated in the shootings because of the list she helped create. A list of people and things she and Nick hated. The list he used to pick his targets.

Now, after a summer of seclusion, Val is forced to confront her guilt as she returns to school to complete her senior year. Haunted by the memory of the boyfriend she still loves and navigating rocky relationships with her family, former friends and the girl whose life she saved, Val must come to grips with the tragedy that took place and her role in it, in order to make amends and move on with her life.

 
 
Happy Reading!

Interesting, I haven't seen Rowlings name come up, your the first one. I would have thought more people would have chose her.
Happy Friday! Thanks for stopping by. Followingtoo

Fun choices. I think Cassandra Clare's tweets are hilarious, so I bet she'd be pretty entertaining in person. :)
Happy Friday.

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

Thank you for following me, following you back.

I would love to meet JK Rowling as well. I actually got to meet Cassandra Clare when she came to Ottawa. She's super nice and hilarious. I hope you get to meet her soon!

Jen @ A Book and a Latte said...

Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog :). I'm following you back! J.K. Rowling would be on my short list of authors I'm dying to meet. She was my first thought... but I choose differently because I've gotten to know (in a way) other authors through their blogs and twitter which make me interested to meet them in person. I wish Rowling was more interactive with her fans. I hope she writes something new soon! Here’s my Hop and Follow post! ~ Jen @ A Book and a Latte

I've never met an author either. I would be nervous mess if I ever got the chance to meet an author.

Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! I love reading what you have to say, whether good or bad. (This is not an open invitation to be rude.)

This blog is an award-free zone. I simply don't have the time to pass them on. Thanks for thinking of me, though :).
