Blog Hop (14)

The Blog Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Crazy for Books. This week's question is:"Which book blogger would you most like to meet in real life?"


ooohhh... Interesting question this week! I almost passed on this week's hop because I'm going out of town tomorrow for 5 days of fun and books at the International Reading Association Conference (it's ok to be jealous), and I'm not sure how much time I'll have to blog hop this upcoming week. BUT this question is too good to pass on! I would love to meet the masterminds behind these blogs:


1. The Bookish Brunette -- She's hilarious. If I lived near her, I would want to be her shopping buddy. For real. Plus, her blog is great. If you haven't seen it... well... (not thinking nice thoughts at the moment). I have a bit of blog envy. =)

2.A Backwards Story -- We have an 83% reading compatibilty according to Goodreads! Can you imagine the AWESOME book talks we would have? I also have blog envy here as well.

Are you for Team Zombie or Team Unicorn? Even if you're not sure where you stand, you will find something to like about this book. The layout if brilliant: each "chapter"-- or story-- is either about zombies or unicorns. Don't worry about not knowing which story you're reading, each story has a corresponding icon to help you identify what you're reading. Also, before each story is a short snippet from the two authors' long standing blog debate about zombies and unicorns. These "blurbs" are hilarious. I mean it. It's laugh-out-loud material. I think I actually caught myself snorting when Justine Larbalestier called unicorns "fart rainbows." Still not sold? Maybe knowing that authors like Libba…
Hooray for Jessi at Reading in the Corner! She won my very first contest and an ebook copy of Princess Callie and the Totally Amazing Talking Tiara by Daisy Piper.
