Today Squeaky Books hosts Nicole from WORD for Teens. I asked Nicole to write about what she would do if she could host any author's birthday. Nicole will be hosting tomorrow's contest. Check back tomorrow at noon to find out more!
Enna posed this question for me - you know, because it's BIRTHDAY related, and it's her BIRTHDAY MONTH! Let the confetti sparkle and the cake be cut and all that fun stuff.
You have to throw a birthday party for your favorite author (or one of your favorites). Who are you throwing the party for, and what do you do?
And there are so many options to answer! For instance, I absolutely adore Soulless by Gail Carriger. It would be fun to bring her to Mohonk Mountain House (http://www.mohonk.com/), which is a Victorian castle, and host a ball! Preferably without vampires trying to kill us, of course.
And then there's Suzanne Collins, author of the Gregor the Overlander series. Oh, and The Hunger Games series. (I love both.) But I have absolutely no idea what I would do with her! Perhaps we would rent a movie theater and then go to Uno's or something to eat afterwards. Something chillax.
Of course, I love Anne McCaffrey, too. She wrote the DragonRiders of Pern series - and about a gazillion other things. As she's in her eighties now, I think it would be awesome just to go to her house in Ireland and have a cozy get together - and maybe rent a hot air balloon. Yes, a hot air balloon sounds JUST the thing.
Or Charlotte Bronte, author of Jane Eyre. But it'd be hard to throw a birthday party for her. She's dead.
But we COULD throw her a deathday party, alla Nearly Headless Nick in Harry Potter, I suppose...
What about YOU? Who's your favorite author? What would you do for their birthday?
