Top Ten Authors I Really Want to Meet
Posted by Zi (Bookish Gamer)
Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and features weekly top-ten lists! This week’s topic is Ten Authors I REALLY Want to Meet. I decided this meant authors who are alive today (if we added those that have passed away long ago or even not so long ago, this list would have been a lot harder!).
J.K Rowling – This should be no surprise and I’m sure you’ll see it on many TTT posts this week. What Potter fan wouldn’t want to meet her?
Libba Bray – I’m sure a meeting with her would be hilarious, fun and end up in weird conversation. Even if it were just at a book signing (which would also be awesome), I’d love to meet her.
Lauren DeStefano – I’m going to come clean here: I haven’t yet read any of her books. I’ve only read her tweets and tumblr and through those tweets I know we have stuff in common. She reminds me a lot of one of my friends. But seeing as social anxiety is a thing for us both, the meeting would most likely be virtual but still awesome.
Courtney C. Stevens – I’d love to meet and talk about life, fantasy, writing or pretty much anything over tea.
Ernest Cline – I’d probably ask how similar Armada will be to RP1 in regards to pop culture references and then chat about video games…
Suzanne Collins – Just to ask why. Why? (You know what I’m talking about fellow Hunger Games readers!)
Scott Westerfeld – I need to tell him to write more steampunk because I need more after the Leviathan series. Or cyberpunk, because Scott doing cyberpunk would be awesome too.
Neil Gaiman – Another favorite. I just want him to tell me a story, ok? Also to ask if Graveyard Book might get a movie because Tim Burton needs to make it. I’m hopeful anyway.
Nikki Kelly – So technically I DID meet her back in October and she signed my book, but now that I read and loved Lailah, I’d love to meet her again! And maybe get a picture next time. You know, if that happens. She was super sweet though!
Markus Zuzak – I’d ask him when his next book will come because it’s been 10 years since The Book Thief.
