Top Ten Tuesday: Authors I'm Dying To Meet


Happy Tuesday and welcome back to Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish!  This week's topic is Authors I'm Dying To Meet.  I haven't had the opportunity to meet very many authors, but I have had the chance to meet Mindy McGinnis and Louise Erdrich both of which were great experiences.  Below are ten authors I would love to have the opportunity to meet one day.



Jim Butcher - The Dresden Files is one of my all time favorites.


Cassandra Clare - I can't resist being sucked into the Shadowhunter world.


Neil Gaiman - I will read anything Gaiman cares to write.


Kevin Hearne - The Iron Druid Chronicles is right up there with The Dresden Files!


Marissa Meyer - After The Lunar Chronicles, I had to add her to the list.


Rick Riordan - His takes on Greek, Egyptian, and Norse mythology are just the best.


J.K. Rowling - How could I not want to meet Rowling?!


V.E. Schwab - Pretty please?


Maggie Stiefvater - I think she would just be awesome to meet - can you blame me?


Cat Winters - She has quickly become one of my favorite authors of historical fantasy.


Have you met any of these authors in person?  Have you read any of their novels?  As always, thanks very much for visiting my blog and for perhaps even commenting down below.

  2. Kevin Hearne- good one! Gaiman wouldn't be bad and of course J.K. Even though I've only read one HP book she seems so interesting.

  3. Great list! It would definitely be amazing to meet Neil Gaiman and J.K. Rowling. It would probably be a dream come true to meet Rowling really! The only other author I've read so far here is Cassandra Clare and I don't know if I'd feel strongly enough to want to meet her yet (I've only read one book).

  7. I would love to meet JK Rowling and Rick Riordan, two of my favourite authors! I actually have met Maggie Stiefvater and Victoria Schwab, even managed to form vaguely coherent sentences around them, which was a surprise!

  8. Such a great list of authors! I've met Victoria and Maggie! They were so nice. I've also been to a Cassandra Clare signing but it was so packed I only got to see her for about 30 seconds. Great list!

  11. Hah, I'm with you on Gaiman! I've loved everything I've read of his so far, and would LOVE to go to a signing of his. And Marissa Meyer! Yes, the Lunar Chronicles were so much love.

  12. I would be thrilled to meet any of these authors, but I’d especially love to meet JK Rowling, Rick Riordan and Marissa Meyer. Thanks for sharing and, as always, fabulous choices! <3

  13. So many amazing authors!! While I'd love to say I'd like to meet all of my favorite authors, I'm one of those people that doesn't like to meet anyone that has produced anything that I've intellectually consumed. I don't like meeting actors/actresses, singers, authors, or anyone else of the sort. Sad, right? In any case, this is a wonderful list with amazing authors!

    1. I know exactly what you mean - I'd also doubt I'd be able to get about much intelligible! :D

  16. I'd really be interested in hearing Cat Winters talk about her novels. I really don't think I've read an author quite like her. Great list!

  17. Maggie Stiefvater would be amazing to meet, and Cassandra Clare is such a great choice too! I don't think I'd be able to get any words out if I did meet them though.
