Follow Friday #7 & Book Blogger Hop #4

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

Q. The magic book fairy pops out of your cereal box and says "you and your favorite character (from a book of course) can switch places!" Who are you going to switch with?

A. Oooh! That's a tough one... I'm a sucker for romance, so I'd switch places with Raven Madison in the Vampire Kisses series by Ellen Schreiber. She's fun and funny, she has awesome clothes, and she has a very romantic and caring boyfriend. Who could ask for anything more?

To join the fun and make new book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:
  1. (Required) Follow the Follow My Book Blog Friday Host { } and any one else you want to follow on the list
  2. (Required) Follow our Featured Bloggers -
  3. Put your Blog name & URL in the Linky thing. LINKY TOOLS IS BACK! I paid for the subscription - finally so now you can add the links to your own post!!! To add the code to your own post click on GET THE CODE here under the list of names.
  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
  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!


Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Jennifer @ Crazy for Books. I missed this one before work today, so I'm editing to add this... :)

This week's question: Who is the ONE author that you are DYING to meet?

Hmm... There are so many great authors out there. Ellen Hopkins, Jennifer Echols, Lauren Oliver, Ellen Schreiber, Elizabeth Scott, Kathy Reichs, Megan McCafferty... But if I HAD to narrow it down to just ONE... I would pick Ellen Hopkins because I admire her ability to take the most serious of situations and compose a beautiful tugs at your heartstrings novel. And I love that she writes in verse.

Happy Friday everybody! ^_^

  7. Hey Jessica!
    Nice picks. I've gotta say I love that you picked an author who writes a "beautiful tugs at your heartstrings novel." That's always been one of my favorite phrases :)
    Hope you're having a great Friday!
