This week, I’m once again joining in with Billy at Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer‘s book blogger hop, where they post a question which you and other bloggers answer, hopping from blog to blog to see people’s answers. This week, the question is…
If you could have lunch with any living authors and/or book bloggers, who would you choose and why?
So I have to say, I always have a bit of fear about meeting people I admire and so the idea of meeting any of my favourite authors is pretty scary. If I have to pick one, though, I would say it would have to be Margaret Attwood, whose books I just love.
I love the way she writes, how she has a distinctive style but can turn it to so many different books from the historical fiction of Alias Grace to the science fiction (and incredibly scary) of the Maddaddam trilogy. And who could forget the chilling dystopian future she sets out in The Handmaid’s Tale?
There isn’t a world I haven’t fallen into (well, actually there is one – The Heart Goes Last – but everyone needs a wobble now and then), a character I haven’t cared for, a book I haven’t wanted to read again.
But for all that love, what would I say? That’s the question and why – really – I would rather admire from afar for fear of gushing uncontrollably or stammering out a question that makes me sound like I’ve never read a book. What about you? Who would you want to meet – and would you be braver then me?
