  7. If you're new to the follow friday hop, comment and let me know, so I can stop by and check out your blog! 
So this weeks questions is:

Q. 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?

Wow, ok so I'd really love to have a sit down with JK Rowling, for most obvious reasons. I love her, I think I really do, she changed my life with her books! I'd just tell her to write more Harry books!!! James Patterson is my other author... I love his Womens Murder Club series and I'd also tell him to write more books, more and more and more!!! I'd just want to find out from both of them how they manage to do it? How do all those stories just flow out of them? Did JK drink some magical potion to create this great series? Did James work as an Police Officer to be able to think of all the crimes he writes about? The other author is Phillipa Gregory, I'd tell her I love her work, I bet we'll chat about Royal History for hours! And I'd tell her to do a little bit more research on her books because some of her facts just aren't right! But I'd tell her I love her work anyway :)

Book Blogger Hop
How it Works
As long as you meet the qualifications of a book blogger, you may add your book blog link into the linky list below.  But before you do that, there are a few requirements.  Read up, to save yourself a headache with the linky!  :)

2. While you are creating your post, answer the following question (there’s a new prompt each week)!

Q: What’s the ONE GENRE that you wish you could get into, but just can’t?
Mine would have to be the heavy sci fi stuff, aliens and things, but like ultra sci fi, I can still read things like I Am Number Four which was sci fi for me, but no more than that. I just don't like it and I dont know why. Another thing I dont like is when authors writing fantasy goes totally overboard! Really, have just vampires or just magic or just fairies, don't have all 3 in one, and don't make it sooooo soppy... I'm also board to death with romantic vampires! Another "genre" I just can't get into is autobiographies, I wish I could read more of it, but it bores me! Unless it's about someone that I truely admire, I just can't get into it...
What's your answer

My genre I guess is eclectic. I have a hard time with Paranormal/Fantasy and Horror/blood/gore.

Re: Book Blogger Hop
I agree that any book that is over-the-top is hard to take. It seems like some authors try way to hard to impress.

I don't really get into the sci-fi with the aliens and stuff either. I totally understand.

Oh! I totally forgot autobiographies .. most memoirs I can't get into ... and ESPECIALLY celebrity memoirs - usually NOT well-written and almost always narcissistic!
