Follow Friday (#20)

Alison Can Read Feature & Follow
Feature & Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read where you meet and follow different bloggers.

Question of the Week: If you could hang out with any author (living) who would it be and what would you want to do?


Do you even need to ask?! John Green, for sure. I read my first book by him (Papertowns, if you were wondering) just over two years ago, and I immediately fell in love with his easy style of writing and the way he can create this fantastically quirky characters who you can't help but fall in love with. I'm currently rereading The Fault in Our Stars (again, ssssh) because it is so amazingly amazing and I have a lot of love for Augustus Waters.

If we met, I guess I'd like to go for coffee in a quiet Starbucks somewhere and probe his brain - I want to find out the futures of all my favourite characters, and I'd try to smuggle some information about his new book from him.

So who did you pick, and what would you do? Leave a comment below, as well as a link - I follow everyone back!

  1. I never read anything by John Green. I'm not sure his book would be my thing but I do want to read The Fault in Our Stars sometime because EVERYONE says it's so amazing.

    Probing the brains of authors in Starbuck. Yeah, sounds about right! :D

  2. Okay, I haven't read The Fault in Our Starts. I'm a total wussy and I'm just not ready. But I chose him too after I saw a little video rant he did. I love his energy and humor. I bet if you two sat for coffee, he'd have the whole room gathered around in two minutes. Thanks for stopping by and for the follow. I followed back. Happy Friday!

  17. I've still never read his books but I have 'Fault in our Stars' on my TBR pile. I'm going to have to move him up the pile - seeing how popular he is.
