Top Ten Tuesday (TTT) brought to you by The Broke and the Bookish.
Ten Authors I REALLY Want To Meet
This week is probably going to be pretty repetitive to a recent TTT in which I listed my favorite authors. I’m not going to revisit that post when thinking about this topic. When I’m done we can check for fun to see if all 10 match or if I’ve got some different authors I’d like to talk to besides my favorites. I’ll do my best to come up with some new ones here.
1. J.K. Rowling. Duh.
2. Oscar Wilde. Can we pick dead authors? Too late, I just did. The Doctor will have to swing by and pick me up in the TARDIS for this one.
3. Jenny Lawson. Jenny is the one author on this list who feels like a regular gal to me. She is so hysterically funny. Her writing makes me feel like we would be buddies who would have a fun time hanging out.
4. George Harrison. My favorite Beatle. I think he counts, right? (We’ve already established use of the TARDIS in this list, so I know that’s not the issue.) But does George count as an author for this list? I say yes. He wrote an autobiography, but he also penned song lyrics both while he was with The Beatles and as a solo artist. Song lyrics are a form of poetry, so I say yes, he counts. And more importantly, it’s my list, and I can do what I want.
5. Steve Berry. With his delightful Georgia accent, I would love to sit down and just talk history with him.
6. M.C. Beaton. Her Hamish Macbeth characters are so wonderful to read. I would enjoy sitting down to have a spot of tea with her and learn more about her and her life in Scotland.
7. Rainbow Rowell. Still have only read Landline. (I plan to fix that and read more from her, don’t worry.) I have questions from Landline and want to know what happened to the characters after it ended.
9. Jane Yolen and Jane Breskin Zalben. To thank them for penning my favorite childhood book, Invitation to the Butterfly Ball. My dad and I used to read that together every night and we both had the whole book memorized.
One little mouse in great distress looks all over for a floor-length dress. If she can’t find one smaller than small, then she can’t go to the Butterfly Ball!
10. Rick Riordan. This one’s for my boys. It would be awesome to sit with Mr. Riordan and talk about Percy Jackson and also the new Norse series coming this fall.
Who makes your list? Is it different from your favorite authors? Looks like half of this list is overlapping with my favorite author list. Comment below and feel free to add a link to your own TTT.
Until next time, I bid you adieu.
Or Laters, as they apparently say in England.
