Happy Friday and thanks for dropping by Slush Sleuth! Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by the lovely Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read, where we all get together and say "Hi!" This week's question...
What is the one thing you wish you could tell your favorite author?
Bahhhhh... I hate being asked "Favorite ___" questions because I always have so many favorites and I can never be called upon to chose a single one. But if you insist.....
I'll go with Richelle Mead.
My dream meeting would go something like this:
Me: [Insert truly thought provoking and insightful comment]
Richelle: Oh my goodness! I totally agree!
At which point we would hug, link arms and skip off into the sunset (and in case you're wondering what happens in the sunset, we have lots of sleepovers and braid each others hair and gab about boys that are of the fictional and non-fictional and Ryan Gosling type, and I babysit her newborn so she and the hubby can go on cute dates.
How this interaction would probably-almost-definitely-actually go:
Me: aaahhbbbhhss;292u;;;;;;;;;;;;;;; <---(brain overheating)
Richelle: Hi, it's nice to meet you.
Me: OMG it's nice to MEET you TOO. I'm really obsessed with you! I mean! Your books! I love your books! It'ssoverynicetomeetyousorryI'malittleexcited!! (It should be noted that my voice always rises roughly 4.6 octaves when meeting new authors. In fact, when encountering Stephanie Perkins a few weeks ago I am quite certain that I hit a register only comprehendable by Snow White and her bird friends. I think she only nodded and smiled to placate me... She's very sweet, by the way...)
She nods, maybe signs a book, potentially pats me on the arm if she has decided that whatever twitchy high-pitched problem I seem to have is not contageous, and I move on, slightly deflated that I will not be babysitting little-Richelle anytime soon.
So how is that for the longest Follow Friday answer ever? How about y'all? What are your favorite authors? Do you get as flustered as I do around your favorites? Be sure to leave a comment and let me know, so I can stop by to check out your blog as well!
