Any who to make it up to you I will combine days 13 and 14 because they go together and then I will schedule 15 for tonight, so I won’t be too late! So let’s get to it! The links will lead to Author profiles and Goodreads pages for the books!
Day 13: Favorite Author(s)
Okay guys yes I am totally gonna cheat with this answer with 2 authors, and if you have been on my blog for a while you probably already know who I am going to say… You wouldn’t want me to lie to you guys would you? My goal is to be as honest on here as I can be after all. This is my outlet to be me. So my way of choosing and being positive of these two lovely Rock Stars (because that is what authors are to me) is having loved 3 or more of their books with a rating of 4 stars or higher. So with that *drumroll* My choices are:
Her world building I just bow to it. I try to learn something from this wonderful author each time I pick up her books. Her characters are always very strong and are easy to build attachments too. Some even swoon worthy *coughs* Nick and Clay. Not only that, but her books always take me somewhere new. Her characters are always my comfort and who I draw strength from. I feel feels with her characters, but when I am in a good mood and place I always root for them. Her books are always ones I recommend to people when I don’t know what to recommend.
With Cecelia Ahern she was my first step into something that wasn’t YA! Granted, I had watched the movie before reading the book, but seeing the differences made me love both all the more. She was also the first author that introduced magical realism to me and made me understand it! Which is more than my professor than have done. Her characters are real and relate-able. She makes you form bonds and care for them even after the book is over. I still wonder how Holly is and if she found love again. I wonder if Luke made a new best friend and if him and Elizabeth do more things to bond. I deeply care for each of these characters and it is because of the work she puts into them. She is my number one go to with Chick Lit which I rarely read, but hers are a comfort!
Day 15: Favorite Books by My Favorite Author
1. Bitten by Kelley Armstrong
I’ve raved about this series a lot, but it is a great first book to get you invested into a series. It also leads you into the character who ties most of these book together. Plus very yummy male characters to drool over. Then there is the wolf factor. This is my favorite so far, but it could change when I get further into the series… I can’t wait to have all the books!
2. PS I Love You by Cecelia Ahern
My first Ahern book and I think my first trip to Ireland! Well… Through reading that is. This book has you invest in every character. You live through each memory and feel each emotion with Holly. If you love the movie the book will show you the one scene they really needed to put in!
3. If You Could See Me Now by Cecelia Ahern
Honestly I wish I owned this book because it was adorable! It was beautiful and definitely strengthened my belief in love. It reminded you that you need to let go and be a kid! It is okay to see the world new and different. I just cannot explain well enough how good this story is. Just go pick it up you won’t regret it I promise!
Well Bookworms that is it for now! Yes I cheated in this post, but it is worth it to turn people onto these authors and books. These are the things that shape us and bond us after all. Hope you enjoyed this post and I’m sorry it’s a bit late. Who is your favorite author? What is your guidelines for having a favorite? Have you read anything by these authors? Let me know down below!
PS: If You didn’t see my 4th of July post here you go: Day 12
Hey bookworms! I am stalling on working on my final theory Exam. I have the story open, so that is progress! Today has just been a rough day for me, so let’s push to the happy topic of books! So this post is a Top Ten Tuesday post. This is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish each week has a theme and you answer with your top ten bookish answers. This weeks theme is: Ten Authors I REALLY Want To Meet! All the Links will be leading to their individual sites. These are authors that I haven’t met in signings. I have met a few at signings and festivals. The last two are authors I want to ask questions.
1. JK Rowling
(Picture found off Goodreads)
Again just her story helps me realize that I can get through what life is throwing at me now. I can pursue my dreams and that my degree doesn’t have to be something I get just for a job, but to better myself and follow my passion. The Harry Potter series also got me through a rough patch before. I started them in middle school later than most, but that is because I was impatient to wait for more books, so started later meant I had more to read even if I had to wait for the last few. They provided me with safe place and a home. I just really want to get a chance to thank her for that.
2. Kiera Cass
(Found off her site)
I love how bubbly and energetic she is. I love seeing her videos and just she created images in my head that were beautiful! Her tale of love makes me believe it can exist in any circumstance!
(Found on her Goodreads)
She was my intro into my first adult book and I adore PS I love you. I listened to her interview in the special features of the movie and I love how much work she put into it. She really inspired me! I have only read two of her novels, but I plan to change that soon!
(Found on her Site)
She wrote one of my favorite series and she has always been sweet when replying to fans! I loved how she portrayed the wolves and want to read her other series!

I loved her world building in my favorite book The Night Circus! I loved the characters and it was all just beautiful. I would love to ask her some writing advice.
6. Neil Gaiman

After listening to Stardust on Audio book it just made me want to pick his brain! The interview and how much thought he puts into his work. Is something to admire. He is one of the kings of fantasy!
(Taken from Goodreads)
My second peek into adult contemporary and Emma and Dex are my favorite. I just want to know how he was able to write this. It broke my heart but heals me each time. Another author I need to read more of!
(Taken from her site)
My autobuy author made my list of course! I love her characters, the action, and world building! Just love her writing style and love her! I want her to teach me!
9. Abbi Glines
(Taken from Goodreads)
She was supposed to come to the Vegas Valley book festival last year. I just had some questions for her and really want to still ask them!
10. Cammie McGovern
(Picture found off Goodreads)
Her book Say What You will caused a lot of negative feelings for me. I just would like to talk to her and ask her to put a disclaimer in her book that the main character does not represent everyone with CP. I want to like her as a person though, so talking about it may help me. I am not downing anyone who liked this book, but I still have problems coping with it.
This was one of the hardest to think of bookworms, but those are the authors I picked! Man I got this done late, but it’s still Tuesday! I am going to do the Bout of Books Survey from yesterday for fun and then get to reading the story. Do you want to meet any of these authors? Have you had an author you’ve wanted to talk to because of feelings on a book? Leave me a comment to let me know please!
PS: Been watching Girl Meets World and the feels from yesterday’s episode god I need to gush! If you guys want to see a post about that I can go one for that. Also a correction to my last post episode’s play at: 8:30 PM on Disney. I also plan on hosting a give away when I get 11 more followers!
