Book Blogger Hop - 4/7 - 4/13

 Question of the Week:

If you could meet one author, dead or alive, who would it be? (submitted by Kristin @ Lukten av Trykksverte)
 *********
My Answer:

I would enjoy meeting Daphne du Maurier.

She is a master at creativity and intrigue.  Her characters are authentic.  Even though most characters are unlikable, I would want to ask her how she came up with her characters and how she made them the way they are.

I would also like to ask her how she came up with the ideas for her books.  :)

    1. So true, isn't it?

      The BEA is a marvelous way to meet them.

      Thanks for stopping, Kathy.

  3. I would love to meet either Stephen King or Haruki Murakami. Murakami would be really interesting I think because he's so quiet and not really in the public eye.

    1. I don't know who Haruki Murakami it.

      I don't read Stephen King's book, but he would be an interesting person to chat with.

      Thanks for stopping, Ti.

  4. Oh, that's a GREAT choice, Elizabeth! Although I didn't mention her in my post (there are SO many TERRIFIC authors, as you know) I would love to be able to meet her as well! I've only read one of her books -- "Rebecca" -- and she is definitely a writer of great importance. I need to read more of her novels!

    Heck, I think I'll go back and add her name to my post! Thanks for nudging my memory!!

    Enjoy your weekend, and Happy Reading (and Hopping)!! <3 <3 :) :)

    1. Rebecca is the best IMO (and it's the most famous).

  7. Ooh goody yes! Daphne du Maurier! I haven't read all her work, but Rebecca is one of those books I finished in one sitting. And I have a buddy read with Katherine @ I wish I lived in a library with My cousin Rachel in June!

    Enjoy your weekend Elizabeth!

  8. Dorothy Dunnett. Though I'd be so intimidated I don't know what I'd say.

  9. Great choice. Rebecca is wonderful. I love all versions of it: the book, the Hitchcock film, the stage adaptation, and the Austrian musical!

  10. I have yet to read any of her books, I'm afraid to say. In fact, I had never heard of her until I started blogging nearly 11 years ago, can you believe it? Such a crime! I do plan to read at least one of her books this year. I've heard such good things about her books. Thank you for sharing, Elizabeth! I hope you have a wonderful week.

  11. I have never read Rebecca! I know, that's terrible. I even have the audiobook. I need to listen to it soon. :)
