Top Ten Tuesday: Authors I REALLY Want To Meet


Happy Tuesday, everyone!  This week's Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, is Authors I REALLY Want To Meet.  Yes, REALLY is in all caps.  There are so many I'd love to meet, but I going to simplify things for myself and choose authors who are currently living.  Here we go, this list is off the top of my head:


J.K. Rowling


Jim Butcher


Kevin Hearne


Neil Gaiman


Maggie Stiefvater


Marissa Meyer


John Green


Patrick Ness

Laini Taylor


David Estes


What do you think of my list?  Would you like to meet any of these awesome authors, too?

  7. What a great list! Rowling was on my list, and Neil Gaiman. Marissa Meyer, John Green, and Kevin Hearne probably should have been!

    I forgot that I have met Maggie Stiefvater when I wrote my post. She gave a talk on writing at a library not too far from us, so I took my budding author to hear her. But I actually haven't read any of her books yet! My daughter (the writer) loves the Raven Boys series and enjoyed the Ballad books as well.

    1. Very cool! You definitely should check out her books - especially The Raven Boys and The Scorpio Races. I haven't read the Ballad books yet. Thanks for visiting my blog. :)

  14. I've not read any of Laini Taylor's books (I know, I know, I need to - and I will!) I think anyone that is willing to rock that pink of hair would have to be a pretty fun person to meet.

    1. I've only read the first two Daughter of Smoke and Bone books (I don't want the story to end), but she seems like she would be great. :)

  15. Good call on Patrick Ness. I'm hoping to meet him at BEA. His Chaos Walking series was brilliant.
