Blog Hoppin' It Around! (28)

Book Blogger Hop

This is my thirtieth blog hop hosted by Crazy-For-Books and Parajunkee's View  whoohoo!!!!
Join in on the fun or click here to visit book bloggers to meet new friends, discover great books and just have some fun! 

This weeks questions for Crazy-For-Books:
Q. What's the one genre you wish you could get into, but you just can't?
A. Steampunk. I just can't find the intrigue in it at all. I also have a hard time getting into fantasy. Yet, I love Star Trek, Urban Fantasy, and Paranormal Romance. 

This weeks question for Parajunkee's:

Q. Name three authors 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?
A. ACK! Three! My first choice would be Virna dePaul. She has been one of the most helpful and giving people I have met. She has taken time out of her overly busy schedule for me and any question or concern I may have in my writing journey and you can definitely add to that her over whelming kindness! I would love to share a meal with her and enjoy her company. My second choice would be Jeaniene Frost for her ability to craft such well written PNR books. To be able to pick her brain would be AWESOME! My Third choice is a double because I'm a rebel like that!;-)  over the past year I have made some great author friends and two of those friends are Roz Lee and Em Petrova. They have helped me, believed in me, and guided me when I needed it most. And one day I hope to share a meal with them and finish the bond of friendship started by a simple hello one day on Facebook. 

Thanks for stopping by! I can't wait to read your answers!


  1. Hopping through. I really need to read Jeanine Frost's books. I've heard so many good things.

  2. Aww it's too bad you can't get into steampunk, it's a lot of fun although I can see how it's definitely not for everyone. The corsets though ^.~

  6. New follower, please return the favour and i will love you forever! (or, just, you know, become a blog stalker...whichever comes first...)
    SNAP with Jeaniene Frost, Cat and Bones are my fave vamp couple, they seriously kick some ass :D
    Also, double snap with the steampunk thing...i tried some but found that i preferred PNR and Fantasy...meh.
    Please come over and say hi, i love meeting new people! Have an awesome weekend,

  7. I must admit that I haven't heard about steampunk before.

    Here's my Blog Hop

  8. Hey! New follower here! I'll admit I haven't read these authors before, which is awesome, cause it means I'm discovering new books! Great choices! You can check mine out at Fuzzy.Coffee.Books!
    Have a great weekend!

  9. I'm glad you've had the opportunity to develop a relationship with a couple authors that way and hope you do get to do "lunch" with one or both. That would be fun!

  10. New follower here! Glad to see Frost on your list! She helped introduce me to the world of PNR! Check out my other author picks:

  11. Thanks for dropping by @ We Fancy Books *waves*

    Following you now :)

  12. Until recently, I hadn't tried Steampunk, either, but so many people recommended Gail Carriger's "Soulless" that I started wout with that one - LOVED it; have read Changeless and Blamless and have Heartles son my to-buy list.

    I also read Scott Westerfeld's Leviathan and Behemoth ... and a couple of other steampunk books .. they were bleh for me (other than The Girl in the Steel Corset, which I also loved), but I'll try some Cherie Priest next.


Sorry I've had to turn on word verification! I hate those darn things as much as you probably do but the bot spammers are eating me alive! We still want to hear from you IF you are a valued reader of BIR. Thank you for taking the time to stop in and enjoy my post!
