Book blogger hop #7 and Follow Friday #2

Book Blogger Hop
Hosted by Crazy for books
Book Blogger Hop

Question of the week:
What’s the ONE GENRE that you wish you could get into, but just can’t.

That would be  detective stories. My mom loves them and I have read one or two but I just don´t seem to be able to finish them. And then there is science fiction. My dad loves them but me not so much and that is kind of weird in a way, because at some level it is kind of like fantasy and I love fantasy but I just can´t seem to like sci-fi all that much!

Question of the week:
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?

Three? Well I think I have to say Richelle Mead, Aprilynne Pike and Marian Keyes. I would love to just ask them questions about their writing. What inspires them. I would also ask them for a tip or two, cause I would love to write my own story one day!

Hello! Love your idea of a family blog! How cool is that?

New follower.

I haven't heard of any of your authors. I'll have to check them out.

Bookbelle: Thank you :) I have done some reviews of marian keyes and aprilynne pike here on the blog if you want to check it out! :)

Yeah, not a sci-fi fan either, but since that's where my urban fantasy gets shelved I'm more like whatever. Call what you want, but it's urban fantasy for me since there are space-y books in the same section.

Have only heard of 2 of your authors. By any chance is your first one meant to be Richelle Mead? The author of Vampire Academy? That's what I thought at first, but like I said haven't heard of an author called Michelle Read, so I could be wrong! :)

Here's my Friday Hops

Have a GREAT weekend!

ooo Love the blogger hop question. I'd have to say fantasy. Everyone seems to really enjoy it and there are so many books out there but I just can't get far with a fantasy book as a rule.

Sci-Fi isn't my cup of tea either. Happy Friday!

I am the same with sci-fi. I don't even like watching anything sci-fi.
