Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Authors I Want to Meet

May 12, 2015 Top Ten Tuesday 15

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke & The Bookish.
Each week they release a Top Ten Theme and invite everyone to join in and make their own Top Ten List.

I can’t believe it’s Tuesday already, my weeks seem to be disappearing! Just to let you know that there is now less then a week left to enter my Giveaway for a gorgeous bookish mug!

This week is all about the authors that we would love to meet. I have been so lucky in the past two years to meet some of my favourite authors including Malorie Blackman, Gayle Foreman and Non Pratt, but there are just so many more that I want to meet….

TT Author to Meet

1) Tillie Cole – Every time Tillie comes to the UK I seem to miss out on seeing her, and I am super sad about this! Hopefully one of these days I will FINALLY get to meet her, and go all fangirly and make a complete fool out of myself!
Sweet Home . Sweet Rome . Sweet Fall . Sweet HopeIt Ain’t Me Babe . Heart Recaptured . Raze

2) George R.R Martin – His world building is fantastic, as are his balls at being able to so easily kill off his main characters so easily. I need to meet this man and learn how to become him (except less beard-y!)

3) J.R.R Tolkien (deceased) – Just like with George, his world building skills are phenomenal and be able to meet him and hear him talk about the creation of Middle Earth, well that would be a dream come true! One to add to my celebrity dinner party list I guess.

4) J.K.Rowling – I don’t feel like I need to explain this one. I would LOVE to meet her, but at the same time I know that I will become a complete mess and probably cry, there will be a lot of mumbling and possibly some fainting. Maybe I should leave that one for a little while until I’m a grown up and can actually manage to talk to her without turning into a totally marshmallow!

5) Colleen Hoover – She has this ability to make me cry, a lot. So we need to have words…I need so many more books from her, because I have SO MANY more tears to shed! Plus, I am kind of hoping that she would bring her pig with her and I would get to play with it!
Hopeless . Loosing Hope . Ugly Love . Never Never

6) Cassandra Clare – She wrote one of my most favourite series ever and so it would be amazing to get to meet her. And in exciting news, she is going to be at YALC this year, so I WILL GET TO MEET HER! So so so excited! I need to practice not being a fan girl idiot though like I did with Malorie last year! (I’m pretty sure there were tears involved!)

7) Krista and Becca Ritchie – For creating a series that I thought I was going to hate that turned into one of my most favourite I would like to meet these sisters just so I can bow down at their feet and thank them for the amazing Addicted series. I would also love to learn more about their writing processes, I mean how do you write a book as twin authors? Do they use twin telepathy? Who knows! Very important questions to be asked!
Addicted to You . RicochetAddicted for Now . Kiss the Sky . Hothouse Flower . ThriveAddicted After All . Fuel the Fire.

8) Christopher Paolini – Another one that I have picked for his world building. Christopher was only 15 when he first wrote Eragon, and I would love to know everything there is to know about Alagaësia and how he came about creating it.

9) Keary Taylor – She wrote the first book I ever reviewed on Broc’s Bookcase and I have wanted to meet her ever since. Her ability to write a range of different genres, and well, makes her one of my most exciting authors to read from, and I would love to meet her and talk books with her!
What I Didn’t Say

10) Marie Rutkoski – I discovered the Winners Trilogy this year, and WOW is it amazing. It compeltely took my breath away. The detail that went into creating the world, it’s people, it’s customes and history: every little detail is taken care of and it a series that you feel truly honoured to read. I would love to get in this ladies head for the day, and I figure that maind control requires you to be close to the maind you are wanting control of, hence why I would need to meet her!
The Winners Curse . The Winners Crime


What do you think of my choices? Do you want to meet any of these authors?

    Such a great list! We’ve got some overlap of authors! I’m with you on a lot of these, it would be incredible to meet the people that have created such incredible worlds, characters and stories.

      Before I started blogging I never thought of authors as real everyday people. Even now, two years into my blog I still find it incredible I can chat to on twitter and meet these people who have wrote such amazing things!

    I have George RR Martin also, but what interests me is Christopher Paolino. I haven’t read any of Eragon, but learning that he first wrote it at 15 makes me think he may be a world-creating George RR Martin in the making. I’m going to check it out.

      If you are into Fantasy then you MUST read Christopher Paolini’s books, and even if you are not you must still read them! A lot of people have watched the film ‘Eragon’ and been put off (because the film was rubbish compared to his books) so don’t listen to those people. His world building is to the standard of Tolkien and Martin, he just sadly hasn’t got as much recognition as them. Let me know what you think!

  3. Lillian @ Mom With a Reading Problem

    Tolkien made my list as well, but I stuck with deceased authors. Otherwise Rowling would have definitely made mine! I haven’t read Rutkoski or Clare yet though I own their books. Just not enough time in the day…

    Here’s my TTT 🙂

    • Brocs Bookcase

      Oh Wow, I LOVE Marie Rutkoski’s Winners Trilogy. I only discovered it this year when the second book was released, but I feel like tha may have been a good think because it meant that I got to read books 1 and 2 back to back. I really hop you get round to reading them soon and enjoy them as much as I did! Thanks for stopping by, Happy Reading! 🙂

  4. JJ

    I had JK Rowling on my list too! I am so jealous that you got to meet Malorie Blackman, she was on my list, I’d love to meet her.

  5. Cait @ Paper Fury

    I love GRRM’s books, but frankly? I think he’s terrifying! HAHA. So I will skip meeting him and go straight to Cassandra Clare! I’ve watched some interviews of her and she sounds soooo super nice. Also Holly Black! I want to meet them together and then marvel at their epic authorly friendship. xD

  6. Tarkabarka

    I do appreciate good world building! 🙂 I am a big fan of both GRRM and JRRT, although neither made it to my list this time 🙂 I think I would be way too overwhelmed to have a conversation with either of them.
    Cheers from a TTT newbie! 🙂

      Haha, yes I know what you mean. I probably wouldn’t be doing much talking either. Just a whole lot of gawping! Thanks for stopping by, Happy Reading! 🙂
