Book Blog Hop and Follow Friday (Jul 22)

Book Blogger Hop

Welcome from Book Blog Hop hosted by Crazy for Books and Follow Friday hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read!

What’s the ONE GENRE that you wish you could get into, but just can’t?

I kind of wish I could get into classics, but I always find something newer and shinier to read whenever I think about it. Sometimes it makes me feel less well read because I haven't read the classics. It's ok though, I have lots of fun with my SFF books ^.^

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?

John Scalzi who is the author of Old Man's War is someone I would absolutely love to sit down with because he's just generally entertaining although his books are awesome too, but I don't have too many questions about the books beyond when are there going to be more.

Patrick Rothfuss, he's like a big huggable teddy bear, and it would be great to have discussion with him

I would also love to talk to Jacqueline Carey because her books are just so wonderful.

Oh wow, I don't know these authors at all. But I'm all in favor or teddy bears.

Here's my FF http://www.stuckinbooks.com/2011/07/follow-friday-7-22-11.html

 

Hopping through. You managed to pick three authors I don't know!
Oh...and you haven't been out of the loop. This is my first week of hosting. So far it's going well. It took me three days of fiddling with the post to make sure it was going to go up right. I was really nervous. :-)

I've never heard of these authors. I'll have to check them out.

 

Just stopping to say thanks for the follow and I am following you now!

 

Hi there, thanks for stopping by. I'm following you back.
Have a great weekend!

I keep hearing nice things about Mr. Rothfuss. I need to try his work out sometime soon...

 

I'm EXACTLY the same way... I know I should read the classics, but something 'new and sparkly' catches my eye and it's a no-go!
My FF Post!

 

I love classics and wish I had more time for them too. I admire the stamina of people who read almost nothing but classics. There is always something new distracting me from them too although I try to read one a month.

 

Split the difference and read some Jules Verne and H.G. Wells. :)

Since last week's pie chart about where I get my books was so popular, I thought I'd share what types of books I do read. Please stop by to see which genres I don't typically read.

 

Hi, I am a new follower just stopping by to show some love. I haven't heard of any of the authors that you have listed before. I will have to look them up.

Danielle @Ramblings From This Chick

 

I'm the same way with classics! Although, when I was younger I went through a phase where that's all I read. There are still ones I'd love to re-read or finally get around to reading for the first time.

Thanks for stopping by mine!

Amanda @ Letters Inside Out

 

Coming through on the hop! I could not post the link for some reason - my peeve is vampire and paranormal just the opposite!

 

Hi & Happy Friday!

These authors are new to me, thank-you for sharing.

My FF, http://obsessionwithbooks.blogspot.com

Have a nice weekend :)

 

Hi, just hopping on by. You've picked 3 authors I've not heard of either.

Have a great weekend, TC

I am with you on the classics. Some I can get into, some I just can't do it, and I feel bad about it.

 

thanks for the follow! following back :)

 

I have a hard time with the classics too and I feel like something is wrong with me when I can't get into it. I'm doing a read a long for David Copperfield right now and it was definitely not the classic I should have started with! Very daunting.

I would love to sit down with Jen Lancaster! She's funny and Charlaine Harris (whom I've met.)

Hi! Thanks for stopping by. It looks like I am your 600th follower. :) I hope you have a lovely weekend.

 

Returning the visit! I absolutely love Jacqueline Carey! Great choice. :)

 

Hi, old follower hopping through!

Seems like great choices. I don't think I've read anything by either of them though, sadly.

Happy weekend! My full answer can be found here!

thank you for visiting. Now I'm visiting you back. Good choices. Jacqueline Carey, i've only read one of her books and it was smoking hot.

 

Hi! New follower here, hopping along on this wonderful Friday! Enjoyed the idea of 3rd sentence...I'll have to post next Thursday! Check out my answers to this week's question: http://andinovelista.blogspot.com/2011/07/feature-follow_21.html#comments

I forget how much I truly love your blog sometimes and I think I'll have commented and then find out later that I didn't and just thought I did. Ugh! I am horrible, but I do really enjoy your blog! :)

For me, I do love the Classics, but I have to really be in the mood to read them. Apparently, I love them so much that I have two copies of Jane Eyre and one copy of Pride and Prejudice. lol. Now, if it's something like Great Expectations or Little Women, I'll sit down and read those all day long. Seriously, I love those books to death! :)

Happy Friday Hops, have a grrreat weekend!

I've read so many of the classics in high school and college... and I do like Shakespeare and Jane Austen. But there's a lot of classics I've been meaning to re-read only because I've heard from so many people that they enjoyed them so much more when they didn't have to read them for school.

 

I haven't heard of these authors before. I'll have to look them up.
Thanks for stopping by and I'm following you back.

 

I haven't read too many classics either and I really should. Too many new good ones though to pass up. I am a new follower on gfc as countrysunset40. Come on over to visit when you get the chance.

Hey there, thanks for stopping by! And yes, I just have too questionable of a stomach to eat with a favorite author. I'm not sure I could even think of something to say. Happy reading, friend!
