Book Blogger Hop

This week, Book Blogger Hop is being hosted by Lori over at Lori's Reading Corner.  The question is:

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

I always manage to break the rules over here at The Lemme Library, so of course I will list more than 1 author.  Here goes:

1. Ever since I started emailing/blogging with Kirby Larson, I have wanted to meet her. She is sincere and honest and humble. She would probably think I'm a little too crazy, but we would balance each other out.  Here is my review of her new book The Friendship Doll.

2. Tom Angleberger may have a restraining order out against me. The author of The Strange Case of Origami Yoda is on my to meet list. I guess I could wave to him from the mandated 150 feet ordered by possible restraining order. My students had the opportunity to Skype with him, so I have "sort of" met him. Our communications started after I gave Origami Yoda my Bizarro Newbery this year. I think our sense of humor is very much alike... 13 year old boyish. Here are some posts that Tom may use to convince the judge to grant said restraining order: Post 1, Post 2, Post 3, Post 4, Post 5, Post 6, Post 7 and Post 8.

3. Laurel Snyder lived in Iowa City for a time, and her book Any Which Wall is set here in Iowa City. (LOVED that book!) I follow her Tweets and book reviews on GoodReads. She is snarky, funny and opinionated and I love her. I think we could hit The Java House and talk smack over a Caramel Creme Latte. I can't wait for her new book Bigger Than a Bread Box to come out!


  1. That's so cool that you are in contact with authors that you really like. And that one would talk to your students! Sometimes I think I forget that they're just regular people, and most of them are nice. :)
    Happy Friday!

  2. Just blogging by, great choices,


  3. I will have to add these authors to my TBR list, I haven't heard of them before now and they all sounds fascinating. The Friendship Doll sounds like a great book. Thanks for good recommendations!
