Top 10 Tuesday – Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
Writing prompts (posted in advance) for “10 Books That …” and other bookish prompts in a list.
This week’s Top 10 Tuesday is about authors you’d like to meet or possibly get their autograph. I’ve got a little bit of a list of people that I think it’d be super neat to meet and will actually be meeting a couple of them in the near future! This list is in order of who I read the longest time ago and have kinda always wanted to meet and forward onto more recent authors I’ve found and would love to meet.
J.K. Rowling – I cannot think of anyone I’d like to meet more than her. I’ve ALWAYS wanted to meet her since I read the Harry Potter series. She literally shaped my childhood.
Stephanie Meyers – a lot of people gripe about the Twilight series and I’ve got my own thoughts on it as well, but this was the second series I picked up to take me out of my Harry Potter slump. I’ll always be #TeamJacob.
Neil Gaiman – Talk about such detailed storytelling. Gaiman was introduced to me in High School by my friends.
Orson Scott Card – Now this one I blame on my husband. He’s the BIGGEST OSC fanboy out there, which in turn got me to start reading his novels. I’m still working my way through the worlds of the Enders Saga, but I will say that his Pathfinder series is pretty neat.
Ernest Cline – I’m HUGE on nostalgia and there’s something about the books that he has put out just keep me coming back and re-reading them, or well listening on repeat on audio book. I just want to geek out with him.
Rainbow Rowell – I’ve read a few of her books and there’s something really authentic about all of them that I really would love to meet her in person to see where these stories come from. I may be seeing her at BookCon in NYC this summer.
Jen Sincero – if you haven’t read You Are A Badass, get to your nearest bookstore and pick it up ASAP. Her humor and wit is awesome – plus the book really put things into perspective for me and I would love to thank her for that.
Sarah J. Maas – I’ve had friends begging me to read the Throne of Glass and A Court of Thorns and Roses series for FOREVER and I just recently was able to start digging in. This woman knows how to write up some book boyfriends and I just need to hug her for giving me all the feels. I will actually be meeting her this May while she is on the book tour for the third installment of the ACOTAR series.
Cora Carmack – I’ve mainly had online interactions with Cora since I am a part of her Roar street team, but she is the NICEST person ever and I totally want to meet her in person to thank her for the opportunity. I’m totally stoked to start reading her other series (I think I’ll delve into the Rusk University series first) and I maaaayyyy be seeing her at BookCon in NYC this summer and again in 2018 when I hopefully go to Apollycon.
Stephanie Garber – HAVE YOU READ CARAVAL?!?! I read her awesome authors note from my Owlcrate in February and we have a lot of things in common, so I’d love to meet her. I may see her at BookCon in NYC this summer.
I honestly have a TON of authors I’d love to meet and it seems that a lot of them are also on the lineup for BookCon this summer – that’s pretty exciting to me! Do we share any authors that you’d like to meet? Have you met any authors that were really cool?
