Follow Friday #41

Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee.

Q: If you could hang out with any author (living) who would it be and what would you want to do?

Tamora Pierce, for starters. She's an awesome fantasy writer; I remember loving her Circle of Magic Quartet in elementary school (though I can't remember if that quartet is MG or YA). I sort of imagine that we're sitting in the Starbucks section of a Barnes and Noble, chatting about our favorite books.

I'd kinda like to meet Eoin Colfer, the author of the Artemis Fowl series. I believe he's Irish, and Irish people are awesome. (I've never understood how America and Britain could treat the Irish peoples so terribly over the centuries. Seriously, Ireland is possibly among the world's Absolute Coolest Places ever, according to me.) I have to find out what happens after the last book! And Artemis's fate is a lot more authentic when it comes from the author's mouth, not my own speculation.

J.K. Rowling, of course; everyone wants to meet the Harry Potter Author. But for some reason I can only picture us talking when we're walking through Flourish and Blott's.

There are a ton more authors (*cough*of-every-book-I've-ever-read*cough*) that I'd love to meet. But since I'm typing this up during the commercials while I watch Law and Order (Special Victims Unit), I'm leaving it at that.

How about you? Who would you like to meet? Where would you be? Have a blessed Friday and weekend!


  1. I followed you every way that I could! Hope to see you around!

  2. J.K. Rowling is a very popular choice today. I don't blame people of course haha. You had great choices! I am a new GFC follower :)

  3. Tamora Pierce is a very STRONG author and J.K. Rowling or John Green seem to be the more popular authors but hey, they deserve it :)

  4. Love all three of your answers! Such great writers. Count me as another Tamora Pierce fan especially with the Circle of Magic books...Tris was my fav! Old follower.

    Happy Friday!

  5. I'm not sure if I've heard of Tamora Pierce yet, but now I've just looked her up to see what's she written. I agree with JK - I think she'd have a lot of interesting things to say with that unbelievably awesome imagination of hers! I haven't read the Artemis Fowl series. Is it good?

  6. I'm yet to read one of Tamora Pierce's books but I've heard she's got the same style as Isobelle Carmody which I LOVE!!!

  7. Eoin Colfer is the best! I am also 100 percent behind meeting all the authors I have ever read a book of ever, too. I am so in. I am even willing to donate whatever I have to (a trinket/plantpot/beloved neighbour) to the cause of raising the more decidedly dead ones to make them undead for a day or two.
