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:
By Jennifer Brown

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.
