Ah, my favorite day of the week, Friday! And to celebrate, how about another Reverse Author Interview? Today we are welcoming Jodi Lynn Anderson, author of the Peaches series and most recently, Tiger Lily (among other things!) I read Tiger Lily and thought it was a fun companion piece to the Peter Pan story! You can read that review here. If you're new, Reverse Author Interviews is an event hosted by the ladies of BookMunchies where authors get the chance to question their readers! It's been a very fun twist on traditional author interviews! Now, onto Jodi's questions!
JLA: What makes all the work and effort of book blogging worth it for you?
C@FCB: You know, that's a good question. I never really thought about it. I love seeing conversations spark up about books. If I can have some influence on that then I'm happy. Same with hearing that someone has fallen in love with a new book. I just enjoy being able to share my passion with other people. I've also met a lot of new friends from book blogging, and that's a huge bonus. The community is much bigger than I could have ever imagined, and everyone is friendly and helpful, and there is always someone around willing to talk about a book. But my favorite part is watching people discover and fall in love with new stories. As long as that continues to happen, I'll love book blogging!
JLA: What are your favorite classics -- both adult and young adult?
C@FCB: Favorite classics:
Just to name a few... :)
JLA: What has been your favorite interview and why?
C@FCB: My favorite of the RAIs? They've all been wonderful! Jay Kristoff's and Kendare Blake's were particularly funny. Marissa Meyer is one of my personal favorites, so that was thrilling. But each one of them has given me some insight into what y'all (authors) wonder about, so I've learned a lot about what would make reviews more useful to authors, and not just to readers. So I don't think I can pick a favorite! But thanks for asking!!
Big thanks to Jodi Lynn Anderson for stopping by FCB today to participate in the Reverse Author Interviews! And also to the ladies of BookMunchies for organizing the event! They've done a great job!
