Each week, The Broke and Bookish host a Top Ten Tuesday based on a certain bookish topic. Other bloggers are able to participate and post their own top ten list based on the topic.
This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is freebie, so I chose to do an old topic I’ve missed, Top Ten Authors I’m DYING To Meet, instead. I’ve met a lot of authors like Stephanie Perkins, Marissa Meyer, Leigh Bardugo, Michelle Hodkin, and Rainbow Rowell already, but I want to meet more of my favorites that never seem to come around to my area!
So here’s my list in no particular order:
1. Laini Taylor
I NEED TO MEET LAINI TAYLOR ALREADY. I love, love, love her Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy. I want an opportunity to meet Laini and crazy fangirl over her.
2. Mary E. Pearson
I’m so sad that Mary E. Pearson isn’t going on tour again for The Heart of Betrayal. Hopefully she’ll go on tour one day so I can finally meet her and talk to her about The Kiss of Deception in person.
3. Maggie Stiefvater
Maggie Stiefvater already came to NYC during BEA in 2014, but I didn’t meet her because I was feeling so tired after BEA and my overprotective parents didn’t want me out all day. However, I WILL (hopefully) meet Maggie one day and get her to sign all ten books I have of hers.
4. Huntley Fitzpatrick
Huntley Fitzpatrick was supposed to be at an event in NYC, but things happened and she couldn’t show up, aka I sadly couldn’t express my love for My Life Next Door. Hopefully she’ll come to NYC soon so I can finally meet her!
5. Kasie West
Kasie West’s Split Second was one of the two books I gave a five star rating to in 2014. Yes, I loved Split Second that much. The only problem is that I’ve never met Kasie West since she never came to my area before. Hopefully one day I’ll meet her!
6. Sherry Thomas
I absolutely adored Sherry Thomas’ The Burning Sky (I’ve sadly not read its sequel yet). I’ve also talked to Sherry a few times on twitter and she’s just so sweet! The problem is, I haven’t met Sherry Thomas yet, but it looks like this year is the year to meet her as she’ll be in my area later this year.
7. Kelly Armstrong
I adore every single Young Adult book this woman writes (except for Sea of Shadows since I’ve never read it yet). I haven’t read Kelley Armstrong’s adult books yet, but hopefully will sometime soon. I just hope Kelley will come to my area soon so I can flail all over her!
8. Rachel Hawkins
I was a fan of Rachel Hawkins before I started blogging and discovered her Hex Hall trilogy. Although I got my copy of Rebel Belle signed because a friend was kind enough to get it signed for me, I still want to meet Rachel in person.
9. Katie McGarry
Both Pushing the Limits and Dare You To are two of my favorite books, ever. Just rereading some of the parts that made me cry in those two books the first time that I’ve read it still makes me cry to this day. I’ll love to meet Katie in person and tell her that.
10. Lisa Kleypas
I love, love, love Lisa Kleypas’ historical romances. I reread it over and over again. I’m not sure if Lisa goes on tours, but hopefully she will one day and she’ll magically be in my area!
And now, I want to know, what are the top ten author’s you are DYING to meet?
