Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
This week’s topic: Authors I Really Want to Meet!
Oh, holy creators of stories! Your humble servants come before you to offer our love and devotion! We yearn to bask in your greatness! Let us come forward and dabble in your glitter and sparkle!
This week, Lyn and Pixie share which authors they would totally fan-girl over, face to face.
1. Richelle Mead
Well, after reading all of the Vampire Academy (and Bloodlines, and Dark Swan, and Gameboard of the Gods) books, I just feel like Mead is one of the top authors on my list of favorites in my life. I’m absolutely dying to meet her one day. And I’m sure I’ll make sure it happens sometime. Also, I’m super excited for her new book later this year!
2. Stephen King
A lot of reasons behind meeting this awesome guy. I need to give him a hug. He’s a fantastic author. He inspired my reading and writing. Quite simple.
3. Laini Taylor
I looooooveee every little bit about Laini Taylor’s writing. Like, maybe into jealous territory. I want to learn how to write like that. Lol. She’s amazing and I would love to meet her and stare in awe because I would be too scared to speak most likely.
4. J.K. Rowling
Okay, so this would probably be on my list of “most likely never going to happen” but I can dream. I think many of us hold a special place for the HP series. And how cool would it be to meet this amazing author, talk to her, and get books signed? I almost tear up at the thought. Lol.
5. Victoria Schwab
This lady is super adorable and super super sweet and I MUST meet her one day!
P.S. If I could have said, I also would love to see Melissa Marr again. She was wonderful meeting! 🙂
1. Laini Taylor
It makes perfect sense that I would love to meet my author idol in the flesh. Although, I’m not sure I could talk to her. I can imagine myself shoving a copy of Dreams of Gods and Monsters at her, sobbing incoherently.
2. Marcus Sedgwick
My favorite male author just oozes charm – his picture, his words, and his themes. I desperately would love to meet him, face to face, and fangirl to him about his incorporation of science and Scandinavian Easter eggs into all of his novels.
3. Leigh Bardugo
This author writes the best love scenes, the best snappy, humorous lines, and can pump out some quotable phrases like a pro. Also, anyone who created Sturmhond should be personally thanked every day.
4. Courtney Summers
I mean this in the most non-creepy way ever: Summers always hits me with a punch in her novels. It is like she gets me – she puts into words some of the emotions and thoughts that have been lying at the bottom of my mind, unsolved and unexplored. She brings out something in me that is painful yet needed.
5. Claire Legrand (again)
I miss her. I love her energy and her positive vibes that surround her like a rainbow. Also, I need my copy of Winterspell signed, like, pronto.
