The lovely BookBreather and Magic Attic blogs are hosting a wonderful event called Once Upon a Blog Hop. As part of a giveaway, they have asked a few questions about contemporary novels. To see the full details, click here.
Who is your favorite contemporary author?
Stephanie Perkins. I loved her Anna and the French Kiss.
What is your favorite contemporary book?
Dash and Lily's book of Dares by David Levithan and Rachel Cohn. That book was so sweet and quirky.
Who is your favorite contemporary character?
This one is tough. It would either be Bronwen Oliver (I Now Pronounce You Someone Else) or Etienne St. Clair (Anna and the French Kiss).
What do you love most about contemporary books?
I love the realistic characters with real-world problems. I can truly sympathize with characters who have some of the same things going on in their lives that I do and are learning the same things.
