Follow Friday #13


Alright! Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee & Alison Can Read and is a way for book bloggers to get to know each other better. Just go to their pages and follow the directions, and you'll be making some new friends!

Q. 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?

1. Ellen Hopkins
2. Ellen Schreiber
3. Judy Blume

The why... Ellen Hopkins writes in verse and tackles tough issues and everything flows beautifully. Ellen Schreiber writes the cutest stories, and by cutest I mean that her sense of humor flows throughout and it doesn't take away from the story, it adds to it. Judy Blume writes everything for everyone and is brilliant.

RULES

To join the fun and make new book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:

  1. (Required) Follow the Follow My Book Blog Friday Hosts {Parajunkee & Alison Can Read}
  2. (Required) Follow our Featured Bloggers - We Fancy Books &Unrequited Desire
  3. Put your Blog name & URL in the Linky thing. You can also grab the code if you would like to insert it into your posts.
  4. Grab the button up there and place it in a post, this post is for people to find a place to say "hi" in your comments and that they are now following you.
  5. Follow Follow Follow as many as you can, as many as you want, or just follow a few. The whole point is to make new friends and find new blogs. Also, don't just follow, comment and say hi. Another blogger might not know you are a new follower if you don't say "HI"
  6. If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the Love...and the followers
  7. If you're new to the follow friday hop, comment and let me know, so I can stop by and check out your blog!
Happy Follow Friday y'all!

  2. Ellen Hopkins does have a pretty cool writing style. She's very nice in person although I was really awkward when I met her ^.^

  4. Ellen Hopkins is an AMAZING choice! I would love get writing tips from her because all of her work is mind blowing. I could never write in verse! Anyway, I'm a new follower! Happy hopping!

  16. Hello all! I was able to visit all your pages to check out your answers, but didn't have enough time to comment. It's been a whirlwind weekend at my house. I'll be sure to visit and comment next Friday, I have the day off work! Thanks so much for all of your comments. ^_^ There are so many authors that you always end up forgetting, I noticed a few while passing through other blogs. Have a great week!
