Make A Suggestion

That's right. I need ideas. So, Im letting you decide.
1. Authors
Who should I try and interview for this blog? Pick anyone and I will try to contact them for an interview. Oh my god and goddess, why am I saying any author? Should I change it? No, I won't. Any Author... (yes, I'm weird).

2. Books
What books should I read? I am slow so it may be awhile but I'm open for suggestions. And if you mention a gay book, I'll really try to find it. I read almost any genre, though am more fond of fantasy (elves, mages and witches in particular).  But I won't read Twilight. No. Twilight.
*note: I tried to read Twilight and just don't care for it.

So, now it is your turn. Oh, my wise 69+ followers. Make your suggestions. Will be closed at the end of April, so get those ideas in while you can.

If I say John Green again will you consider it? I'm just saying...

Um, Suzanne Collins? Carrie Ryan? Kat Richardson? Maureen Johnson?

Ok so I'm just spewing out names now. That's all I got so far ;~) Mia awaaay.. *cape billows in wind*

Tahereh said...

oooo SUZANNE COLLINS would be awesome. (i second Mia and pretty much all of her suggestions.)

also: read hex hall, before i fall, graceling, hunger games, gosh there are SO SO many great books..

I would say leave it open to various authors, editors, and agents. I am sure many of us would like to see what goes on in different aspects.

As to books, I would suggest The Historian, Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, or pretty much any other books out there.
How much description are you going to go into it?

Dawn Embers said...

Thanks for the suggestions.

Mia: Green is on the list. :-D

Tahereh: I've actually read Graceling. I met Cashore last fall at a conference in Colorado. She's very nice. I haven't read the next book cause it came out not that long ago and I prefer paperback.

Sarah: it is "open" to various authors. I just ask for suggestions so I can get an idea where to start. There are so many out there it can be difficult to choose. And I don't know what you mean about description, sorry. With the books, I said I'd read them. Nothing else.

Authors to (pick on) choose: Ashelynn S., Harley Palmer, SM Blooding... Hmm Vivian Zabel... Pretty much any author for reviewing. x)

Books I adore: Black Beauty, Anne McCaffrey's Dragonriders of Pern, -Twilight-, Vampire Diaries, and okay there's more I can remember (ie Art of Science) but anyway feel free to choose. :)

Dawn Embers said...

Thanks Angelica. I'm actually going for published authors at this point. Or I'd definitely be interviewing my own writing twin(ashy) and academy boss (harley). Could interview Viv I bet. She's so nice in general.

My first interview was Ransom Noble, it's from last year on this very blog. It's after the interview of her book, Art of Science, which I won in a blog tour.

Amy Jo Lavin said...

I'd recommend Some Girls Are, The Sky is Everywhere, The Body Finder, and North of Beautiful. And that's just a start. :)

Ashley Ladd said...

There are lots of authors who'd love to be interviewed.

I'd like to see Stephen King interviewed. :)
