Just visit Parajunkee's site at the link above-- be sure you are a follower of her blog and the blog she is featuring for the week, put your name in the Linky, create your own FF post on your blog, and then start commenting and following whomever you wish!

So, this week I have been really busy with work, so I haven't had much down-time for reading unfortunately! I did finish and review The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff, and I also did a little "tribute post" to Harry Potter, just to talk about what the series has meant to me growing up and how I will miss the excitement and anticipation of the book/movie releases. I am currently reading Wrapped by Jennifer Bradbury and hope to have it done in a couple days...

Also keep in mind that I am planning a BIG 500 FOLLOWER CELEBRATION GIVEAWAY soon!! I'm definitely excited about that and hope you will all stop by to enter :)

This week's Follow Friday question:

Name 3 authors that you would love to sit down and spend an hour or meal with just talking about either books or get advice on writing from?

I am sure that everyone is going to say my first one, but J.K. Rowling would be my first pick! I've heard how Harry Potter was born on scraps of napkins when J.K. was still a struggling single mom, but I would love to sit down and talk about where all her amazing ideas came from and how they turned into the magical world from her books!

My second pick would be Anna Godbersen-- a new, young author who wrote The Luxe series, I really loved those, and I guess my third pick would be Scott Westerfeld because I love Steampunk and I love the world and characters he created in his book Leviathan.

What authors would you want to meet and talk with? Leave me a comment and I will come see what you had to say! :)

  3. Good choices. Never actually read Leviathan, but must be good if it made that list.

    Just stopping by again. Your becoming a Friday ritual for me.:)

    This week has been hard for reading for me. Migraines are a plague I tell you, a plague...

  12. Hi, LC!! Wow! J.K. Rowling seems to be on a LOT of lists! I've been going around reading answers to this question, and she's just about in every one of them! Well, she's on mine, too! I LOVE the Harry Potter series!!! I'm so sad the books and movies are at an end now...
    I sure would love to spend an entire day with J.K, just discussing all kinds of literary topics!!

    As for your other two choices, I'm not that familiar with them. I have heard of them, though. So I will just have to check them out!!

    Thanks for your thoughts! : )

    (BTW, I love your new look, although I must admit I feel a bit nostalgic for the old one, which I also loved!!) : )

  13. I always thought it was amazing that Rowling planned HP on napkins; that must've been so hard to sort through!

    Also, I'm a new follower. Your blog's so cute! :]
