Follow Friday Time!

Book Blogger hop is normally hosted by Jennifer at Crazy For Books but is being guest hosted by Lori at Lori's Reading Corner this week!

Question: Which author are you dying to meet?

I would love to meet Stephen King! He's crazy I think. Haha, just kidding. Or am I?

Question: 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?


Oh gosh, this is a hard one because all the books I like to read have to do with dying and fighting and honestly...I don't want to fight or die at this time thank you very much. Hehe :)

Hey! New blog hop to me, I figure why not, let's kick it up a notch this week! TGIF hosted by G-Reads!
Question: YA Saves: How do you feel about the "dark" books  filling the YA shelves today?

I don't have too much of an opinion on this? I was talking about it with my friend Cat at Cat's Thoughts and I remember saying that if I had children, I wouldn't necessarily want to see them reading really dark subject matter that catered to Young Adults, but honestly, then I'd have to monitor what they watch on tv and then I'd have to monitor which movies they see...it's books. At least people are reading. An author shouldn't have to pander their creativity so that they can "keep parents happy".

  1. Old follower stopping by to visit! Congrats on being so close to 1000 followers--the big milestone. :-) yeah, most of my favorite ficitonal worlds have a ton of fighting and killing, too. Not nice places, but they are exciting!

  2. Wow! Every answer I’ve read is a great one. Some have been surprising, too.

    The one author I have to meet before I die? Tricky question! It took me a long time – much longer than usual – to come up with an answer.

    Who’s that author I’m dying to meet?

  3. What a great answer to the third hop. I think about this a lot because my son is 10 and honestly, he doesn't care about vampires, werewolves, zombies or wizards. Makes it hard to find books for him - but you're right, an author should be able to write what they feel. I didn't think about Stephen King - he may be a little creepy, but probably very interesting.

  4. Tiger: Thanks! I have a few giveaways to thank for my number climbing up so high! I hope to get some like-minded bloggers to visit my site daily. Still working on that.

    Kris: Thanks Kris! Haha yes King is totally creepy, I bet it would be a meeting I'd never forget lol. I never thought about there not being many options for kids that don't like what's in now! He should read the Shadow Children Series!

  5. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm with you on the second one. There are lots of characters that I love but I wouldn't want to go through half the stuff they do. :)

  8. Hopping through. My parents never monitored what I read (except for not letting me read Sweet Valley High until I was in middle school...which only made it more enticing). In general, I only absorbed what I was ready to handle.
