Author's I'd Love to Meet

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by the fab The Broke and the Bookish.
I love reading everyone's lists each week.

The Top Ten Authors I'd Die to Meet
My List:

  1. Jo Rowling. She gave me Harry Potter. I'd love to meet her for tea in a castle in Edinburough and just soak up her amazingness.
  2. Stephenie Meyer. She gave me Edward. I've meet her once before but it was briefly at a signing and I was speechless.....
  3. Jane Austen. I love her writing, so lovely and poetic. Sense and Sensiblity is my all time fav.
  4. Lauren Oliver. My new favourite author. I've already met her briefly at a signing and once again I was speechless and pretty sure I came off as I crazy stalker person.
  5. Suzanne Collins. Hunger Games Brillance.
  6. Libba Bray-Writer Brillance.
  7. Mo Willems. Author of Don't let the Pigeon Drive the Bus and The Gerald and Piggie Books.......every book I read of his outloud makes me laugh.
  8. Judy Blume. My favourite author from my childhood. I'd love the opportunity to tell her what her books have meant to me
  9. Oliver Jeffers. One of my all time favourite picture book authors.
  10. Kiersten White. In my head Evie and I are BFFS and if you follow Kiersten on Twitter or on her blog you know how hilarious she is.
  11. Gayle Forman. If I Stay changed the way I thought about many things, I'd love the opportunity to tell her.
Looking forward to reading your lists....


  1. Oh Judy Blume, yes!!! I totally forgot about her :( Mo Williams would be fun too, I love reading the Piggie series with my lil guy! I hear ya about Gayle Forman, that book is brilliant!

  2. JK Rowling made my list as well. Like Harry Potter or hate it, you can't deny she is one of the most influential authors of our generation.

  3. Omigosh, Mo Willems! Yes! He's got to be hilarious, I bet.

    Maybe we can hang out with J.K. Rowling and Suzanne Collins together. Literary road trip! =b

  4. Ugh, I forgot J.K. Rowling! I haven't even gotten to read the series for myself yet, but they and the movies are so much a part of my childhood that I can't imagine life without them!


    Following you - I love your blog title! It's so true <3

  5. I'm reading my first Libba Bray book right now (Beauty Queens) and loving it! Good picks!

  6. J.K. Rowling, Suzanne Collins and Jane Austen all made my list as well! And good idea to put Judy Blume on there, it would be so much fun to meet her :)

  7. I loved Judy Blume's books when I was a kid :)

  8. I, too, enjoyed Judy Blume - how many of us put a paper-bag cover over 'Forever' so our moms wouldn't see what we were reading?!? And Jane definitely made it to my list!
