Feature and Follow Friday #33

Feature and Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Rachel at Parajunkee’s View and Alison at Alison Can Read. It is a great way for bloggers to make new friends and find new blogs to follow. Go to either blog, follow ALL the instructions and then add your link to the list. It’s just that easy!

This week's question:

"What is one thing you wish you could tell your favorite author?"

I have more than one favorite author, so I have multiple answers.

I would love to tell Stephen King how his books helped me open a dialogue with my husband, who at that time was just "that grouchy guy I worked with" but soon became my best friend, then my boyfriend and has now been my husband for 18 years. Our mutual love of King's books gave us something to talk about, which led to other topics of conversation and eventually love. Corny, I know, but true.

Though I'm sure she has heard it about a million times, I would like to tell Stephenie Meyer how her books helped bring me closer to my daughter, Ariana, and gave us a mutual obsession to enjoy!

And finally, I would love Cassandra Clare to know that her books, both the Mortal Instruments and the Infernal Devices, have given my daughter Tiana and I something to look forward to--a new book in two different series roughly every 6 months. And that we absolutely love her books! We get all "little girl squeaky" just thinking about the next book in either series.

How about you? What would you like to tell your favorite author? Leave a comment and/or a link to your blog in the comment section and I will check it out. If you would like to follow me, I would love to follow you back.

  15. I love how you use reading to bond with your daughters! Mine are a bit young for us to enjoy the same books (6 and 3), but I really look forward to those middle/high school years when they can just pick a book off of my (hopefully well-stocked) bookshelf, and I can say "I read that." And then we can talk about it.

    I can't read Stephen King - his movies weird-ed me out I could never work my way through anything he wrote because the imagery in words is way worse the the imagery displayed in a movie. Thank you so much for sharing.
