Top Ten Tuesdays is an original and weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.



Ten Authors I REALLY Want to Meet


I figure this list is as good as naming some favorite authors, because I've never really given too much thought to actually meeting them.  But then I read about someone's trip to BEA and how she was able to meet Maggie Stiefvater and I felt a bit jealous.  So maybe there ARE author's I'd like to meet.


If only because I'd like the fifteen second chance to tell them how much I love their books and their writing styles and their wit and humor... and other things.



1.  J.K. Rowling -- Two words.  Queen Rowling.


2.  Maggie Stiefvater -- I'd like to think that having a conversation with Maggie would be as much fun as reading her news/blog posts and her books.  She's got a natural comedic wit to her words that you can't help but be charmed by.


3.  Julie James -- As one of my auto-buy, auto-READ-RIGHT-NOW! authors, I would definitely love to meet Julie James.  Maybe hear from her, personally, how she made the jump from lawyer to writer and tell her how much fun I have reading her books.


4.  Kasie West -- I love her books and I love the dry humor she infuses into her characters and I love that a lot of her characters are nerdy types and so I would love to meet her.


5.  Dean Koontz -- As one of my all time favorite authors, I felt he needed to be on this list.



I suppose a list of five is better than nothing.  I might as well have skipped this week's Top Ten Tuesday since it feels so skimpy.  Ah well.
