Book Blogger Hop #18


Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme run by Coffee Addicted Writer. Every Friday, a question is posted for the book blog community to discuss. This week’s question is…

If you could have lunch with any living authors and/or book bloggers, who would you choose and why?

Oh man, the living restriction is a tough one. If language wasn’t a barrier, I would definitely have lunch with Haruki Murakami. Although I have mixed feelings on his work, I feel like it would be pretty nice to sit down with him and chat over a cup of tea overlooking Tokyo (I’m assuming he lives in Tokyo) in some little cafe. I’d probably just let him talk about his views on life, his running, his portrayal of women in his novels, and so on.

If language is a barrier, I just might have to sit down and have a chat with Lucy Kinsley. If you are unfamiliar with Lucy, she is an artist with a couple of graphic novels under her belt. I will admit I have a little admiration crush on Lucy. She seems like a fun-loving quirky woman and she would probably know the best hidden place to have lunch at.

  1. I think those are great choices! I haven’t read anything by Murakami, but I think he would be an interesting one to visit and have a chance to talk to. I read an interview with him a couple months ago that makes me more eager to give his work a try.

    Thank you for sharing! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

    1. You should definitely pick up one of Murakami’s works! I think his most accessible novel is probably Norwegian Wood. It’s one of my favourites.

      Thanks for commenting and have a wonderful weekend as well!

  2. I don’t know either of those authors, and I see I was to choose a living author.

    Oh dear on my error…I didn’t choose a living one. I guess I need my glasses changed. LOL!! That or I was a bad reader. 🙂

    I hope you have a good lunch with your authors.

    Happy Hopping!!

    1. Haha! The living part really stood out to me because I was about to pick Charlotte Bronte again. Not this week! Thanks for the comment Elizabeth.

  3. I’ve heard of Murakami, but have not read his novels. I’m sure he would be a totally FASCINATING person to have lunch or tea with!

    As for Lucy Kinsley, I’ve never heard of her, but she sounds like a fun person!

    Thanks for sharing! Hope the upcoming week is a GREAT one!! <3 🙂
