Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there’s a new book-related topic to answer!
This week’s topic is Top Ten Authors I’d Love To Meet!
*note: these are in no particular order except for my #1 obviously*
- Tahereh Mafi
God, I just really need to meet Tahereh and sit down with her in a place that is open 24/7 (so we’d have ALL DAY to talk!) and I need her to answer all of my questions regarding the love of my life; Aaron Warner. And just the Shatter Me series in general. Like, I STILL HAVE SO MANY QUESTIONS!!!
- J. K. Rowling
This one is quite obvious and doesn’t need further explaining.
- Jane Austen
I’d have loved to meet Jane Austen if she was still alive! Or I’d just travel back in time to meet her if I could! I haven’t read many of her books but she is one of my favourite authors. She’s so witty and humorous and I bet it’d be loads of fun to spend a day with her!
- Rainbow Rowell
Ok, first of all, how cool is it that her first name is literally Rainbow! So unique! I love her writing and enjoy reading her books and I’d just like to tell her how great she is!
- Becky Albertalli
I haven’t read any of her books yet but I follow her on Twitter and I love her! She’s so cute and I just love reading her tweets. Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda is currently being made into a movie and we could chill on set and stalk Nick Robinson 😉
- Stephanie Garber
I truly loved her debut novel Caraval, I can already say that it’s one of my favourite releases this year! Her writing is incredible and I need her to teach me how she does it! Also, I need to squeeze every bit of information about book 2 out of her!!!
- Marie Lu
I think Marie Lu is so sweet and kind and she seems so genuine! I’d love to chat with her about books and stuff. Please, tell me more about June and Day!
- Leigh Bardugo
Leigh Bardugo has easily become another one of my all time favourite authors! I truly enjoyed the Grisha trilogy and I don’t even have to read the Six of Crows duology to know just how incredible it is. And I really NEED to talk to her about Nikolai and ask all kinds of questions that I have about him! Oh, and make her write a 1000+ page novel about him, please and thank you 😀
- Stephenie Meyer
All I want to do is thank her for introducing me to YA! Twilight was pretty much my first contact with the YA genre and it opened this huge door for me! Bless her.
- Walt Disney
Last, but not least, Walt Disney! I know that, technically, he isn’t an author but I’d have loved to meet him and look into his mind and, like, observe the process of him coming up with the characters that we’ve all come to love today!
Honorable Mentions: Alice Oseman (she seems so sweet on Twitter!), Ransom Riggs (I adore him and Tahereh!), Angie Thomas (she’s just incredible)
So that’s it for my Top Ten Tuesday! I hope you enjoyed it and I can’t wait to read everyone else’s posts!
Who is/are your all time favourite author(s)? Which of them would you love to meet and what would you tell them? And are there any authors that you’ve already met? Let’s chat in the comments!
