Friday Blog Hop - June 10th

Book Blogger Hop

In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the 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!

Each week, participating blogs are asked questions to post and answer on their websites.

This week’s question –

Who is the one author that you are dying to meet?

Hmm...this is a toughie and I can't decide on just one.  I would really like to meet Kimberly Derting, Sarah Rees Brennan and Lauren Oliver.  I was so bummed about missing Lauren when she visited the Toronto area a few weeks ago.  I feel that all 3 of these authors are incredibly sincere about their success and they haven't let it go to their heads.  Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that I've met authors who have been out of control but these three seem to be very modest and true to their roots, something I appreciate...

Now that I have your attention, please don't forget that we have a contest running to win Ruby Red, a new book by Kirsten Gier.  You must be a follower to enter and there are no extra entries needed.  We're making this one nice and easy.  Plus, there are few entries so your chances are high right now.  The contest is open to Canada and the USA and the winner will be drawn using on Sunday June 12th at midnight.  Good luck!

Welcome to the Paperback Princesses! Make yourself at home, take a look around our blog and let us know what you think in the comments section. We would love to hear what you have to say about our posts. We often try to comment on your comments as well so feel free to start a conversation! Since there are two of us running the show, we always have a variety of titles and event postings. Be sure to check out our own personal meme page. Check out Fantastic Fairytales, Let's Hear it for the Boys, In Case you Missed it and a few others. We try to not only focus on new YA books but also great titles from the past.
