Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish that combines lists and books. This weeks topic is… Top Ten Authors I REALLY want to meet.
This is my first Top Ten Tuesday in a while and I’m really excited about this topic. However, in the world of twitter and blogs and book signings, I’ve already had the opportunity to meet several amazing authors. Here are the ones I’d love to sit down and have coffee with:
JK Rowling. Queen. Duh.
Maureen Johnson. She is hilarious and I value hilarity in those I seek out.
Leigh Bardugo. The Grisha Trilogy makes me fangirl flail even if I am recommending it at work. I would love to shake the hand of the woman who bought about these fits of passion.
Jennifer Lynn Barnes. She did a TEDx talk on parasocial relationships, giving me the knowledge to say confidently that we are in a parasocial relationship.
John Green. Again, hilarious with an extra helping of parasocial relationships.
Ally Carter. I hear she bakes snickerdoodles.
Maggie Stiefvater. She seems to go on a lot of adventures. She could be Gandalf to my Bilbo.
Stephanie Perkins. I feel like she would be someone you could have a serious soul-deep conversation with and then five seconds later be laughing about something absolutely ridiculous and immature.
Tahera Mafi. She photographs well and I’d like to get some tips. Plus, again, she has a sense of humor.
David Levithan. Smart people will always make my lists.
