Feature and Follow Friday #26

A weekly meme hosted by Alison Can ReadParajunkee's View 

 How it Works: 
The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee's View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it'll allow us to show off more new blogs!

How does this work? First you visit the blogs of our illustrious hosts and leave your name on the post using using the linky tools, then you create a post on your own blog that links back to this post (easiest way is to just grab the code under the #FF picture and put it in your post) and then you visit as many blogs as you can and tell them "hi" in their comments (on the post that has the #FF image). You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you!

What sets this Hop apart from others, is our Feature. Each week we will showcase a Featured Blogger, from all different genres and areas. Find out below. Just remember it is required, if you participate, to follow our Features and you must follow the hosts (Parajunkee & Alison Can Read) as a courtesy. How do you follow someone? Well, if you have a preference, state it in your #FF post. A lot of blogs are transitioning to Wordpress in which they do not have the luxury of GFC, so an RSS subscription is appreciated or if you choose an email subscription. If you don't have GFC please state in your post how you would like to be followed.

This Week's Question:

Which living author(s) would you like to have dinner with?

This Week's Answer:

Well beyond J.K. Rowling? I would definitely say George R.R. Martin. I'm obsessed with the A Song of Ice and Fire series so I would love to have dinner with GRRM to pick his brain about Westeros and tell him all my elaborate theories as to what I think everything means and what is going to happen. Then if he doesn't tell me I will guilt him into getting on with the writing because we need The Winds of Winter ASAP!

Also I would love to have dinner with Rainbow Rowell because I think we would have lots of fun and I want her to be my BFF! 


Who would you want to have dinner with? Leave me a comment with your thoughts.

And remember this is a blog hop so take a look around and if you like what you see give me a follow and leave me a comment so I can follow back. I am indifferent to the manner in which you follow so pick your poison: GFC, Bloglovin, or Twitter. Although I have been so close to 100 GFC followers for a few weeks so it would be amazing if you get me over that hump! Thanks for dropping by, Happy FF and HAPPY READING!

  1. Haha I picked Rainbow also! Though - damn! I don't know how I didn't think of GRRM. I think I'd be too afraid to talk to him. He would either not tell me anything and be super intimidating or he'd tell me everything I don't want to know, e.g., exactly what that meme says: everybody dies, the end. Haha, great choices though! :)

    1. Rainbow Rowell is amazing! And I think every book reader's fear is that everyone dies at the end of the series. After all this time we have all learned... NO ONE IS SAFE! Thanks for stopping by and following!

  2. Good choices. I know of both these authors, but haven't read any of their books.

    That meme is hilarious!

    Old follower. Happy FF, Cassi!

  3. I would love to pick this man's brain! I haven't read any of his stuff yet but I know I would love it! I love all that High/Epic Fantasy stuff. Brutal battles, Intense romance, mystery and magic. OH MAN! I can't wait to experience the world of THE GAME OF THRONES! I just bought the first book about 2 weeks ago, getting ready to read it soon, real soon! YAY!
    Great dinner date Cassi!

    1. YEAH! I hope you love the A Song of Ice and Fire series! It's so good and is definitely full of all those things you mentioned and more. I love it for all the redemptive character arcs and scheming political intrigue! It's fantastic!

  4. What a great choice! I just barely started listening to A Game of Thrones and am loving it :)

    1. YES YOU DO! The first bit is a prologue that sets up a bog part of the series but it gets much better! It's a great series for fans of epic fantasy!

    1. I thought he would be a great dinner guest. On top of the fact that I want to pick his brain all the mention of feasts in the series it'd probably be a delicious meal!
