This week's question is: What is one thing you wish you could tell your favorite author?

MY ANSWER: Oh wow. Tough one! I've already met so many of my fave authors!! Instead of answering it directly, I will say that at RT I saw one of my many faves there and had to ask why she offed a character in her last book. Won't say who, because then you'll get a spoiler. But I was really liking this character and thought the character was good with the main character and then just as things were wrapping up...BAM! 

It made me cry! She said it even upset her editor. But it had to be done.

TGIF is a weekly feature created and hosted by GReads! that re-caps the week’s posts and has different question each week.
This week's question is: Literary Vacations: If you could take a trip this summer to any place within a fictional book, where would you go? Tell us about your summer dream vacation!

MY ANSWER: Uh, can you say Hogwarts?! Bound to be a popular pick today, but yeah. I'd sooooooo sooooo love to go to Hogwarts! Of course I would want to be a witch too. Or I suppose being a Muggle would work too! As long as I could do magic!!

I would even settle--settle, ha!--for the one in Orlando! I say ha, because I still want to go there really bad too!! Hoping when we next go to Disney World in some odd years that we could go there too! But yes, Hogwarts is my final answer!!

On a side note, any world where paranormal beings existed would work in a pinch for me as well! There's so many to choose from, I'm not real picky! As long as some hot paranormal can be my boyfriend at the same time too! ;)


  1. Great answers to both questions Jessica! Hope you enjoy your weekend :)

    Old follower through GFC, would love for you to check out my FF:

  2. Uh oh, I fear for whoever that character was! Thanks for stopping by my FF, Jessica! Happy Friday. :)

  3. It's always tough when a favourite character dies, but I like the simplicity of the answer - It had to be done. Nice. :)

  5. I hope you're not talking about Insurgent.. if you are, that book will be the death of me.

    Drop by my FF?

  6. I loooooooooove Harry Potter. I love Harry Potter so much. <3

    And... I have GOT to know who you are talking about now.

  9. I always get nervous RTing authors. I feel like I'm bothering them. I need to get my big girl pants on. hehe. Thanks for stopping by.

  10. I'm jealous that you've met so many authors! Here in Ottawa we get shafted... but I got to meet Kelley Armstrong last fall. That ought to hold me for while...

    Way to put that author on the spot Jess! LOL Have a great weekend!

  11. I think I'd quiz authors on why they made certain decisions. I'd also probably beg for spoilers from future works! I don't do TGIF, but what a fun question! Hogwarts would be pretty amazing.

    Old follower. Hope you enjoy your weekend!

  12. I would love to be able to ask my favorite authors about the memorable characters in books - I would probably start with Neil Gaiman.


  13. Oh noes!! Now I'm dying to know who this character-killer is... :P It has to be done sometimes. Sad.

    Thanks for stopping by!

  14. A Hogwarts vacation! Wow. But yeah, magic abilities would be a must. Awesome idea, I bet it would be epic :D

    Have a great weekend, Jess :)

  15. Lol Hogwarts would be great fun, Im with you there !!

  16. Loved both your answers. Thanks for stopping! Happy Friday.

  17. I always wonder why they kill off some of my favorite characters too. Great answers! Check out my FF @ I'm a new follower by the way! :)

  18. Oh yes, Hogwarts! I think this place, even without the actual magic, is just too magical to NOT want to visit. *_*

    Happy reading

  25. Hopping through. The Harry Potter in Orlando was really cool. I want to go back when they expand it.

  26. I hate it when characters we really like have to die - it's always like "do they HAVE HAVE TO??!?!" but they have to stay true to their own stories I guess :( even if it makes us sad! SO excited you got to meet some authors in person - I've yet to do that!

    Hope you have an amazingtastic weekend, Jessica! :)

  27. Oh wow. It even upset her editor!? Hardcore LOL

  28. Hogwarts, would be my dream vacation, but I don't know about summer vacation. I mean not many people would be their since they would all be home for summer, so I don't think it would be as much fun. But I would still go, if given the chance!

  29. Awesome answers! I love how we both managed to mention something from Harry Potter lol :)

    Hope you have a great weekend and thanks for dropping by! :)


  30. Now you have me really really curious. I am so trying to think who was there and who was killed in a book. I am going to solve this
