Follow Friday (4) and Book Blogger Hop (4)

Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee.

This week's question is:

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, grr. There are so many great places to go and people to be! I am going to have to go with Tessa from Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare. First of all, she is a shape-shifter which is my all-time favorite power. I know she has never tried to change into an animal, but that doesn't necessarily mean she can't.
Plus, she lives in a steampunk fantasy version of Victorian London and has two handsome, mysterious, British boys to choose between.

Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Crazy For Books.

This week's question is:

Who is the one author you are dying to meet?

Just one??? I would love to meet Abigail Reynolds and Sasha Soren because I have e-mailed with them a lot and they are both so much fun that I would love to meet them person.
As for authors I have never communicated with but would love to...I think I would have the most interesting conversation with Lois McMaster Bujold. She writes wonderful fantasy and science fiction novels and I would love to ask her how on earth she even writes the character Miles Vorkosigan without going crazy herself.


  1. Hi. Stopping by from the hop. Shape-shifting would be an awesome power indeed. Happy Friday.

    Here's my Friday post:

  2. I'm not really familiar with the authors you've picked. I'm going to have to look them up. Following you now.

  3. Hey! Thanks for the hop! I must read Clockwork Angel soon >.<

  4. Coming through on the hop. So many interesting authors are popping up through the blogs. Have a good weekend.

  5. Thanks for stopping by. Can't say I've heard of any of those authors but I'll definitely check them out.

    Have a great weekend!

  6. Hi

    I'm stopping by on the FF hop.

    What a beautiful blog you have and I like your answer.

    I'm a new follower.

    My FF for this week

    Have a great day.


  7. Following you back. :) Tessa is a great choice-- shapeshifting would be an incredible power, plus she gets to live in a steampunkish world! I love your list of favorite things... many of them are some of mine as well.

  8. great picks. make sure to have a pot of tea for sasha. although not sure what her favorite flavor is. maybe a zingy berry?

  9. Nice that you chose Sasha -- I'd like to meet her, too! And cool that you chose Lois McMaster Bujold -- I have yet to read her books, but I know people who really like them.

  10. Hey.

    I think you're probably right about victorian London, but JACE...come on heh.


  11. I love the preRaphaelite painting. Newest follower!

  12. I have all of Cassandra Clare's books on the docket for my next readathon this week. I can't wait to read them. Tessa sounds great.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm your newest follower.

  13. Hopping through. picked a character from the only C. Clare book I haven't read. I'm going to read it soon.

  14. Hey!!!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog :) Always--ALWAYS--glad to meet a fellow fan of Mr.Thornton/Armitage! I mean, with that voice of his how could you not like him right? *winks* Anyway, great choices up there. I have to admit my #1 superpower has always been wings, but shapeshifting is awesome as well. Plus, Steampunk/Victorian era?? Sounds great; I really liked how Gail Carriger wrote it in her Soulless series!
    Nice to meet you,
    Ninja Girl

  15. Your choice for character swap had me thinking all weekend. If I could switch places with someone, that would be such a difficult choice. Because even though I'd get something cool in return, I'd also have to take on all their trials. Tessa's were especially difficult with the loss of all those who loved her and the betrayal of her brother. I think I might choose Jane True from the Jane True series by Nicole Peeler. Although, she did have quite a few trials in her life, I think I'd take them. And I'm sad to say that I don't know any of the authors you'd like to meet. Thanks for stopping by my blog, sorry it took so long for me to come over. It was one of those weekends where everything happens and none of it planned. Great blog!
