Hop, Follow, and TGIF :)

Book Blogger Hop



I would have to say it is Science Fiction, like the The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury. I think these novels are super creative and I respect them but I just feel when I am reading these type of books (I've tried) that I am un-invovled in them, just pushing through. Why do you like Sci-fi?


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?


Cassandra Clare
Richelle Mead

I would pick them because they created some awesome paranormal worlds and created cultures.
Collen Houck
is my third because I loved the Tiger's Curse. I loved that she picked India and currently I am obssessed with going there and finding out more information.


Who's ready for the weekend?! I know I am! I'm introducing a new feature for Fridays to re-cap the week's posts & to propose a question for my followers. Feel free to get involved by linking up at the bottom. If not, I'd love to read your responses in the comments. Thanks!


This Friday's Question:

Bookshelf Tour: Where do you keep your books at home?
Are they organized?

My books are kept in my office/writing room/ escape room. I have two book shelves and currently there is no order to them. I do keep series together and authors (try to) together as well. Maybe I will go organize them now by author's last name? However, if you were to come to my house you would discover, find, and unbury, random books that when I was finished reading I didn't put back. It's like a surprise! :)

  1. Hi, New Follow:) Great picks. I had a hard time thinking of what author's with the question this week. Way to go with being that organized with your bookshelf's. Happy Friday.

    No sci-fi here! I can't seem to relate to space aliens, robots, etc.

  6. I almost said sci-fi but I like sci-fi. I just never read it. Makes no sense I guess.

  8. My books inhabit several rooms in the house including my bedroom, living room, family room and they are stacked or shelved, depending on the room.

  9. I can't get into sci-fi either. I used to love reading Star Trek books, when I was like 10, but now I have trouble getting into the genre. New follower! Here's my hop: http://booklightgraveyard.blogspot.com/2011/07/book-blogger-hop-2.html
