Book Blogger Hop

Hello Hoppers!
This week’s hop question is what are some of your favorite authors?
Mine include:

Stephen King  because his books typically creep me out, make me cry and make me laugh. I also have a huge literary crush on Roland Deschain. The Dark Tower is one of my favorite series ever and it is tied with Harry Potter.

J.K. Rowling clearly deserves a spot. You know why.

Robin McKinley because she writes strong women and excellent fantasy. Her books leave me imagining.

Alexander Dumas puts the swash in buckle.

While you are hopping here, you should check out two contests I have going on. You can enter to win The Mosts by Melissa Senate or enter to win Sea, She’s So Dead To Us, Girl In Translation and Keeper.

Also, while exploring book blogs, why not check this out:

And finally, my good friend Shanyn at Chick Loves Lit is looking for people interested in joining a blog tour group much like TLC, Pump Up Your Book, and Traveling To Teens called Novel Noise. She’s awesome, so be sure to go here and fill it the form if you would like to promote some authors.
