Book Blogger Hop #10 and Follow Friday #7

Posted July 22, 2011 by Lisa Mandina in / 19 Comments

The Book Blogger Hop is sponsored by Crazy for Books and is a place where bloggers and readers connect over the weekend and chat about books. This week’s question is:

What is the one genre you wish you could get into, but just can’t?

I guess I’d have to pick steampunk probably. I would say some fantasy, but I do read some types of fantasy, so didn’t think that would really count. I don’t really get into Fairy stuff, but have read books with fairies, so again, don’t feel I can really count. I know that SteamPunk is getting to be such a big thing, so I feel as if I should try to read it. I have friends who are kind of into the whole SteamPunk thing, don’t know if they read the books too, but feel like I should be able to. Maybe some day.

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. It is a blog hop where you can expand your blog following by a joint effort between bloggers. This week’s question is:

Name 3 authors 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?

First I would love to sit and get a chance to talk to Stephenie Meyer. When she came to Kansas City a couple years ago, she said one thing that helps me whenever I get stuck with my writing. She said she wrote the story for herself. Sometimes I get bogged down thinking, would other people like this? But when I just think about writing the story I want to tell, it helps me to get through a little more of my story.

Second would be JK Rowling. I just want to know did she have the whole thing planned out when she first started?

Third would be Dean Koontz, because I would love to talk to him about dogs and writing stories.

So, what are your answers to these questions? And check back in the next day or so I’m going to have a giveaway for reaching 100 follower finally!

    Hopping by to say hi! Steampunk can really vary, depending on the author. I like some steampunk stories, but not others … so if you want to try again at some point, maybe try an anthology (stories are shorter, and have lots of authors). 🙂

  2. I would love to meet Stephanie Meyer. I think she did a great job with The Twilight Saga!

    I am new to Follow Fridays but I love the concept. I am a new blogger trying to get going but it is a lot of work. LOL!

    Happy Follow Friday!
    New Follower!


  3. Old follower stopping by! Great answers to this week's questions. Happy Friday and check out my blog hops post on my blog!


  4. Hi, just hopping by to follow back.

    JKR is a great author to meet. She's so magnificent that my old Latin Professor even name dropped her when we were translating A Werewolf Story from the Satyricon.

    Thanks for visiting my blog and have a wonderful weekend.
