Blog Hop and Follow Friday (19)




Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee’s View. This week’s question comes from Nicki J. Markus: The magic book fairy pops out of your cereal box and says “you and your favorite character (from a book of course) can switch places!” Who are you going to switch with? 
I really can’t think of a particular book that I would want to be a part of, but I have a genre preference. I would love to be in one of the fairy tale retellings that I’ve read. The only problem is, I only want to be there during the good times. Most characters in the books that I’ve read have too many problems. I don’t want to add to my strife. =)  So, maybe The Goose Girl. OH! I would love to be in a Tamora Pierce book. Yes! That’s it. Alanna from the Alanna series. That would be a good switch.


Book Blogger Hop

The Book Blog Hop is hosted by Crazy for Books, and has such a great question this week! It is: What author would you most like to meet?

That is such an easy question for me! I adore Laurie Halse Anderson! Love. Her. Speak and Twisted are two of my favorite books. Not to mention that I have read every YA book that she has written. Laurie Halse Anderson has an amazing way of writing about tough subjects in a beautiful, almost poetic style.

I would also like to meet Tamora Pierce. She is the reason I love fantasy novels. Plus, she has an entire series (the Alanna series) that features a kick-ass heroine with MY name. Is there any other reason to want to meet her? I think not!

Hi, there! Thanks for commenting on my blog, and becoming a follower! I'd like to follow you back, but darn it, Blogger seems to be on the blink AGAIN.... At least, I can't see your followers on your page. As soon as the GFC gadget is back up, I'm following you!!

BTW, I don't know who Alanna is, but I'm sure going to find out!

Have a GREAT weekend! : )

I love all of Tamora Pierce's books! I very nearly went with Aly but the Copper Isles are too hot for me. :)

I think I am too afraid to actually meet an author. Would I look like a strange groupie or something? Anyways, Hope your weekend is great!
