Blog Hop and Follow Friday (23)

Book Blogger Hop




The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted over at Crazy for Books. This week's question is: What’s the ONE GENRE that you wish you could get into, but just can’t?

Science Fiction! I have tried and tried to "get into" this genre, but I can't. I've even read some awesome books that give me hope, but the genre as a whole still falls short for me. I thinks it's my aversion to science related things that presents such a  problem. I am more of a fantasy person. 






Follow Friday is a weekly blog hop meme hosted by Parajunkee's View. This week's feature is Alison Can Read, and the 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 on writing from?


To only list three is so hard! I'm thinking off all my favorite authors over the years, so I'm going to throw them out there. 
1. Laurie Halse Anderson
2. Toni Morrison
3. The Bronte sisters


It seems I have a thing for female writers... hmm... I swear that was totally unintentional. If you asked me about favorite poets, I had a ton of males to add to the list! =)

SF is one genre that I have trouble with as well. I can do books with SF elements, but I have yet to really fall in love with a straigh-up SF novel I suppose.

Happy Friday!

Great picks! I have to admit, I only like one Bronte sister. I'm a new follower. My answers are up at Coffee Table Reviews.

Hopping by to say hello! Sci-Fi is a genre that I have gotten into a bit more in recent years. It is mostly the sub-genres that I enjoy with hints of paranormal, etc.

Sci-Fi books are a hit or miss for me but generally I'd say I like the genre.

I love all three of the authors you mentioned. I almost put science fiction when I answered but changed my mind at the last minute.
