Follow Friday – #4



This week's featured blogs
We Fancy Books
and
A Novella's Tale

Hello fellow hoppers and yay for my fourth week joining the Book Blog Follow Friday, hosted by Parajunkee & AlisonCanRead

My blog is nearly at 100 followers! You can be sure that when it reaches that epic number, there'll be a suuweet international giveaway! So stop by, pull up a seat, follow me, I'll follow you and we'll all live happily ever after!


Here's this week's question:

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?

My answer is going to be slightly predictable if you've been reading my blog, haha. But here they are...

Jane Austen - I'd want to know right away about what happens to Elizabeth and Mr Darcy, and all the other characters after the end of Pride and Prejudice! I know that there are many sequels by other authors out there, but they just don't satisfy me because they're not Jane's words and therefore, not her thoughts. You know what I mean? I'd want to know the true story.

Sophie Kinsella - I want to ask her why the lead characters in her books are essentially the same, because even though I enjoy them, it annoys me. But I'd be nice. ;-)

J.R.R. Tolkien - There is so much I would ask him, but first I might request an extensive lesson in Elvish. Would be awesome to speak a language few understand! Ha.


So there you have it guys!

Which authors would you choose?

I was so close to posting J.R.R. Tolkien as well! ;D So funny that you'd ask about Elvish as well, I once self studied it, but have forgotten much. My screenname was once Eledhsúle. ;)

Hey, J.R. Ward is definately creating a great world there, if you want to start with Dark Lover, it's book 1. :)

Hi! New follower and jumped over here from FF!

I <3 Jane Austen. Pride and Prejudice is/was still one of the best fiction books I've ever read. It kept me entertained and I wasn't bored to tears during it. Awesome for choosing her.
