Follow Friday #8: To my favourite authors

 Feature and Follow is a weekly blog hop hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read!

Question of the week: What is one thing you wish you could tell your favourite author?

To my favourite authors:

You guys are amazing and if you've had a favourite author, you'd probably know how much. Your books either made my childhood more special or were a source of escape in the later years. I love how with words you create worlds I get lost in. I love how you help me find more meaning, depth and colour in little things. How you make me laugh, cry and feel a part of the world you create. You make me want to create such worlds too; hoping to one day make someone's day, year and life like you do.

Sometimes, reading your book helps me get over a really bad day or makes a good day even better as I get back home and get back to reading your book. Some of your books, I've read over and over again and each time it's different. And let's not forget the fantastic characters you create that encourages me to look beyond the two dimensions. All that with words.

You are awesome!

That's all for this week's Feature and Follow Friday. Hope you have a great weekend!


  1. Beautiful answer! Thanks for stopping by and following. I'm following back!

  2. Ah, how touching! You really have ways with words, Ajoop. ♥ I agree, a book from my favorite author never fails to make a bad day better, and make my good day even more awesome! Books have always been a source of sweet escape for me, and a window for the outside world! :)

    I adore your answer, Ajoop! ♥

  3. Great answer :) I'm struggling to get further than "thank you!" which is usually what I say to my favourite authors...

  4. Great response! That is so heartfelt; if I were an author I would love it!

  7. AJOOP. You are officially sweetness topped with cherries and caramel drizzle with sprinkles and M&Ms to tie it all together! That was just SO ADORABLY SWEET! <3 I agree with everything you wrote in your letter-to-the-authors -- reading book is so much more than reading word. It's beautiful and heartbreaking and captivating and amazing; and they can both make us and break us; and they mean different things to us at different times. ALL authors have something to say to the world, and I LOVE to hear them say it!

    Beautiful & brilliant answer, Ajoop! I think that every author should read your letter :') <3

  8. I agree with you. Have a good Weekend!
