Book Blogger Hop -The Author I Want to Meet

It's time for Book Blogger Hop! This weekly meme is a great way to meet other bloggers and make new friends. It is usually hosted by Crazy for Books, but this week the host is Lori from Lori's Reading Corner.

This week's questions is:

Who is the ONE author that you are DYING to meet?

My tastes in books are definitely more diverse now than they were 3 years ago. Back then, all I read were books by John Grisham, the king of legal thrillers. I am such a huge fan and I would love to meet him! All his books are great, and he seems like a genuinely nice person. Though I love his legal thrillers, my favorite of his books is his non-fiction work, The Innocent Man. It tells the story of a wrongly convicted man who spent a lot of time in prison for a crime he didn't commit. He never gave up hope and was eventually released, but there are many more stories like his. Head over to The Innocence Project to learn more and see how you can help.

Any other die-hard Grisham fans out there?

Love and (a book) light,



  1. You have made a great choice! I actually did not know of him until my son pointed out his YA novel, Theodore Boone - Kid Lawyer. He has read that book no less than three times!

    Thanks for sharing and i hope you have a fabulous weekend!


  2. He is by far one of my favorite authors. I loved The Innocent Man, though I am not sure I can say it was my favorite. I haven't figured out yet which one is my favorite. I am working through his most recent book right now.

  3. Great author choice, just blogging by.

  5. Hi, I'm a new follower via the Hop.

    I've never read a John Grisham book (although I've seen many of the movie adaptations) but you just about convinced me to seek one out. Very thoughtful post, very good reasons given :-)

  6. I wouldn't say I'm a die-hard Grisham fan but I do enjoy his books!

  7. Wow! Every answer I’ve read is a great one. Some have been surprising, too.

    The one author I have to meet before I die? Tricky question! It took me a long time – much longer than usual – to come up with an answer.

    Who’s that author I’m dying to meet?

    Hop this way to find out my roguish answer –

    Howard A. Sherman, Implementor

  8. I have read only A Time to Kill and The Rainmaker but I did like them both.
