The Book Blogger Hop (25)

The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly event hosted by Jennifer at Crazy for Books and runs from Friday to Sunday. 

The Hop is a fantastic way to get your blog noticed, and visit some other blogs that you didn't know about before. Head over and sign up and see what you can find!

Each week a different question will be added to the hop in order for conversations to occur, and for your followers to get to know you better. Here we go!

"Which book blogger would you
most like to meet in real life?"

Hmmmm, so many to choose from! I am not sure if I would say one particular person, but I would love to have one giant TX book blogger party. I have diligently been keeping track of us and, to date, there are over 50 YA and/or kidlitter bloggers! I have a little log of everyone and where they are from and we have all gotten to know each other well. Texas is a huge state and I just knew there were a ton of us out there. Each time I find another, I eeeek a little bit. We meet up a lot at book signings and festivals. Here is a good one of *some* of us at the Montgomery County Book Festival in Houston a few months ago. Can you pick out which one is me? Lol!

Follow Friday is hosted by the lovely Rachel at Parajunkee's View. Here is her question:

"What character in a book would you most like to be, 
what character in a book would you most like to date?"

I can easily think of a zillion people I would NOT want to be. I don't want to be anyone who has to slay dragons or deal with demons chasing after them. Ugh, who? I am totally stuck. Date...okay this one is easier. I would totally date Jace even if he was my brother. For realz, who cares? We could adopt.... Also, I would take Dr. Cullen. Why would anyone choose a sweaty wolf or Edtard with rosy lips over a hot doctor with a healing touch? Not me! I think I will throw in Four from Divergent just because he is adventurous. Yes, all three - I'll take 'em! 

Share your thoughts and I will find you at your hop.

Divergent is up for grabs, ends 5/8
