Book Blogger Hop and Follow My Book Blog Friday

 I love surfing around the blogosphere in search of new book blogs.  What better (and easier) way to do that then participating in these two weekly memes?!  Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jen @ Crazy for Books and Follow My Book Blog Friday is hosted by Parajunkee's View

Quoted from Jen @ Crazy for Books: "Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and find new book-related blogs that we may be missing out on!  This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books!  It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs that they may not know existed!  In an effort to get to know the blog hoppers, Book Crazy Jen poses a question that the hoppers will answer.  If you start following someone through the Hop, leave a comment on their blog to let them know!  Stop back (@ Crazy for Books) during the week to see other blogs that are added!  And, most importantly, the idea is to HAVE FUN!!  So, grab the logo, post about the Hop on your blog, and start HOPPING through the list of blogs that are posted in the Linky list @ Crazy For Books.

**This week's question:  Tell us about some of your favorite authors and why they are your favorites!

My Answer: Wow~ This is a tough one!  I have so many favorties that it is hard to pick just a few but here goes... 
  • I absolutely love Scott Westerfeld because his books are always so original and creative.  You can always count on great action and adventure as well! (favorite Westerfeld book: Peeps)
  •  Another favorite is Cassandra Clare.  Her Mortal Instruments series is outstanding!  I flew through all of them and now I am anxiously awaiting The Clockwork Angel which is the first book in her prequel series titled The Infernal Devices.  
  • I also love all of Maggie Stiefvater's books.  Shiver is one of my all-time favorite reads and I can't wait to crack open LingerLament and Ballad are also phenomenal!  I love Maggie's  writing style, character development, and creativity.
Those are just a few authors from a very long list of favorites!  Who are some of your favorite authors?
