So if, whilst trolling the blogs, you see any challenges for the new year, an A-Z or 100+ or anything at all, just comment! I would lovelovelove if you would do so.
Preparing a Resolutions List,

I missed the Maelstrom immensely, the posting format, the user-friendly sidebar skillz, the blogger community. Medeia explains the more complex issues surrounding our switch (other than my few months of emo-wordpressage) on her own blog. Good thing she is immensely more eloquent than I or we would be stuck in quite the cyber-lurch.
So in the words of a wise man. "And we're good. And we're dancing. And we're back!"

If anyone has any suggestions for the following letters, could they please let me know in comments? Grazi.
K: *edit* Now Complete! Thank you to commenter "grey" for suggesting Annette Curtis Klause. I shot over to the library and picked up her new book, entitled Freaks, as soon as I could. Be expecting a review on that one. Thanks to Mrs. Magoo for her suggestion as well!

Rules: Link to the person that tagged you, post the rules somewhere in your meme, answer the questions, tag six people in your post, let the tagees know they’ve been chosen by leaving a comment on their blog, let the tagger know your entry is posted.
1. Who’s your all-time favorite author, and why?My all time favorite (modern) author is probably Cornelia Funke (so many to choose from). I first picked up one of her books in fourth grade (Random Aella Fact: I used to hate reading. Beyond that. DESPISE.) and have been a freaky fan ever since.
But. My all time favorite author of all time is Lewis Carroll. Need I say more?
2. Who was your first favorite author, and why? Do you still consider him or her among your favorites?
My first favorite author was Louis Sachar. Oh, Holes, I owe so much to thee. And although he is not among my favorites today, his books hold a special shelf in my heart *sniff*
3. Who’s the most recent addition to your list of favorite authors, and why?The most recent addition to my list of favorite authors is Maureen Johnson. A blogger named Reese (The Magnificent) was the first to tell/force me to read her work. I tore through everything she'd written (novel-wise) in two weeks.
4. If someone asked you who your favorite authors were right now, which authors would first pop out of your mouth? Are there any you’d add on a moment of further reflection?
Lewis Carroll, Cornelia Funke, Libba Bray, Scott Westerfeld, JRR Tolkien, Jaclyn Moriarty, John Green, Kenneth Oppel, Philip Reeve, Tamora Pierce, Conor Kostick (...whew...). After contemplation, I would probably add Frances Hardinger, Frank Beddor, Cory Doctorow, and Robert Ende.
