Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish.

Each week  a new Top Ten list is posted at The Broke and the Bookish. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.

This weeks question:  Who are the top ten authors that you'd DIE to meet?

in no particular order...

1. JK Rowling - like many others, Harry Potter pulled me back into reading for pleasure after all those painful years of studying textbooks!

2. LM Montgomery - Anne of Green Gables, need I say more?

3. Michelle Zink - one of the nicest, most approachable authors I know...and she writes great books too!

4. Jeri Smith-Ready - another super sweet author, who has a love for music & seems all around awesome.

5. Philippa Gregory - I'd love to chat about the Tudors!

6. Kiersten White - her main character in Supernaturally, Evie, is a hoot & I want to see just how tiny Kiersten in in real life :D

7. Kieran Scott - because I want Jake to be real, loved him in She's So Not Dead To Us!

8. Stephen King - with that kind of freaky imagination, I always wonder what he's like in real life.

9. Libba Bray - because she is quirky and I'd never know what to expect!

10. Cassie Clare -  I'd love to pick her brain on writing! She has a magical way of pulling you into her world, grabbing your attention & just when you anticipate something, she gives it to ya! It's like she's in your head & I love that.

Who would you want to meet?


  1. Great picks! I would like to be at those meetinds too :-)

  2. our list is pretty similar!! I think Jk Rowling would be my ultimate though...

  3. Jackie ~ I wold drag you there anyways ;)

    Library Gal ~ We share the same great taste :D

  4. Great list of authors to meet. Some of my faves are there.

  5. I so badly want to meet Stephen King... He's definitely my ultimate, and, unlike most of the others on my list, this is something that is actually possible! Hehe

  6. I'd love to meet Philippa Gregory! I love her books. JK Rowling is an obvious choice. Michelle Zink is also cool (I agree! she's very friendly!)

    I'd add to the list Anne Rice, because I love her vampire books. :)

  7. I have to agree with you on Cassie Clare! And I got to meet Brandon Sanderson, but I would love to be able to just sit down with him and chat books, storylines, and the pattern to it all.

    Great picks!

  8. I've always wondered the same about Stephen King...He would definitely be interesting to meet!

    And oh my gosh, I would be total fangirl if I ever met JK Rowling ;)

  9. Great list! I'm afraid that I would just stand there, all tongue-tied, if I ever did get to meet my favorite authors. Pretty sure I would embarrass myself too! *L*

  10. I'd love to meet Libba Bray and Maggie Steifvater...I see how quirky and fun they can be online so meeting them will probably be a blast.

  11. I love that JK Rowling is like everyone I've seens #1 for this week :P Kieran Scott was on my list too, I would so love to meet her!
