I read pretty much any chance I get. I mostly read YA books but some adult ones as well. To me all books are precious gems and are meant to be treasured.

TGIF and Weekly Recap (8):

TGIF is hosted by Ginger at Greads. It's about recapping on what we posted for the week, and also asking our readers a book related question. The question posted by Ginger today is?

Author Block Party: If you could gather a handful of authors to hang out with who would you choose?

Wow this is a hard question because there are so many I love, and would love to invite. I would have a warehouse full of both authors, bloggers, and friends. That being said I decided to only choose five. I know super hard. Well I picked some all time favorites and some new favorites I found this year.

1.    Here's a Hint !!!


 Maggie Stiefvater:
Author of The Wolves of Mercy Falls Series, Lament and Ballad, and Upcoming Scorpio Races
She is just so funny and adorable. I finally got to meet her for the first time this year. Also she is so down to earth. I could listen to her stories the whole time at the party and never get bored.

2.     The hint for this one is pretty obvious.

Cassandra Clare:
Author of the Mortal Instrument and Infernal Devices Series.
I would love to talk to her about these series. I could do it all night, I would have to say that so far this is my all time favorite series. Its at the top even over Twilight......shhhhhh don't tell. I just love her books they are amazing. They have a little bit of everything, and lets just say that Jace is my all time book boy crush....at least so far. I would just love to meet her.

3.    The next hint?

Lauren Kate:
Author of the Fallen Series. The first thing that drew me to this series was the cover of Fallen. It is the picture up top. The first thing I thought was why is this girl so sad, and I just had to know why. I love this series. I have heard many mixed reviews on it, but it just draws me in. I really enjoy all the characters and the stories. I know many people get confused and get mad because they don't have all the answers, but in each book it reveals something. A series is an ongoing story. You can't know everything right away. I can't wait for the last book in the series. It can't come soon enough. At the party I would try my very best to pull out information from Lauren about the characters and series.

4.   The next author hint.......

Tera Lynn Childs:
Author of Forgive My Fins Series, Oh my Gods series, and the Upcoming Sweet Venom  series.
I had the  privilege to find Tera Lynn Childs this year. The first book I read by her has been Forgive My Fins. I love her writing she is so very creative in her worlds and characters. I loved the Little Mermaid when I was little and it was nice to fall back in love with Mermaids again, especially because if you asked me the one creature I would love to be it would be a mermaid. I love the ocean its so beautiful and peaceful something about it just breaths calm. I am super excited that I found her this year because now I will be reading the next book Fins are Forever, and then her others.

5.    The Last Hint is a hard one.......

Katie M John:
Author of the Knight Trilogy. I also found Katie this year, and just finished her book Forest of Adventures yesterday. This triliogy is so magical. Modern day magic, wizards, knights, round table, swords, fighting, lost relics, and of course love. Where can you go wrong? I would invite her because she is one of my favorite new authors this year. I would love to just sit with her and dive into the world and characters she created.

So that is who I would invite to the Party who would you?
Because you know if we each invite a handful to the same party we get more !!!!!!!!!!


  1. Wow you've got the makings of a pretty amazing gathering with that group! I would love to hang out with Tera Lynn Childs, she has such a great sense of humor in her writing:) And any woman who can write a character like Jace is someone I want to spend some time with:)
