Feature and Follow Friday

Follow Friday is a weekly Blog Hop that can be found over at Parajunkee’s View.

This weeks question is -

What is one thing you wish you could tell your favorite author?

What is with all the difficult questions all of a sudden? Sheesh. I have always said that Charlotte Bronte is my favourite author but I never really thought about what to say to her.

Maybe that I wish she had lived long enough to write more books (but that seems very selfish).

Maybe to thank her for penning Jane Eyre – as through reading that at a young age I began my love of all things bookish.

Maybe to say thank you for taking that step to write in a world where a woman’s roll was very clearly cut in society.

Despite all of these things that I could say, I think I would just thank her for being her.

  1. Aww that's so sweet! Great answer! Hope you have a good friday :)

    Here's my FF!

  2. Great answer! She is definitely has written some of my fav classics.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! Following you back.

  3. I'm ashamed to say that I've never read anything by her. When I was assigned to read Jane Eyre in school, I watched the TV version of it.

    I followed you.

  4. I think it's kind of hard to imagine what to tell a person, especially if you never had to think about it, because there was never a possibility to talk to them.

  5. Hopping through. I'd like to go back and re-read the Bronte books some time. It's been a while.

  6. Popping in! That's such a sweet answer. I've read Jane Eyre, but I honestly don't know much of anything about the woman behind the books. It would be interesting to learn more.

    I see you're from Scotland! I lived there for a while when I was 18, so I like to pretend I'm Scottish (all my friends there would get a really good laugh when I tried to do an accent and pretend). Very jealous you're there! I miss it...

    I'm a new follower! Feel free to visit my FF!

  7. Just hopping through! Thanks for stopping by!

  8. Awesome answer! This may be bad, but I never read the classics or anything nonfiction because it's always either really complicated and fancy-like, or just boring. I know, I'm a bad person, but that's just who I am. Thanks for stopping by my blog, I'm just hopping through! :)

  10. That is an Excellent Answer :D I think one of these days I'm going to have to join that linky thing because the questions are always really great.

    Anyways I was just reading your Outlander posts (massive Diana Gabaldon fan here, haha) and they were really funny and your blog is just really awesome and I followed you :D
