TTT: Ten Authors I`d Love to Meet

Today`s Top Ten Tuesday Topic is quite an exciting one: authors you`d love to meet. Do you pick your favourites? The ones with a funny personality? What happens if your idol has been dead for 200 years? Argh, so many questions and possibilities. Instead of picking the authors that wrote my favourite books, I decided to go with the ones that have similar interests. Just so I know we`d have something in common, and my awkwardness would be to a minimum. Joking, I`m always weird.


1. Adam Silvera
Adam is one of my favourite YA contemporary authors, but he also seems like such a fun and laid back guy on Twitter. I loved his tweets about reading Harry Potter, and he`s so supportive of anyone else. He also struggles with OCD and anxiety, so I strongly recommend you follow him.

2. Leigh Bardugo
She`s the author of my favourite fantasy Universe, and we have similar taste in music. In a parallel world, I could picture ourselves having a blast at a rock concert. Also, after a couple of pints, I might convince her to write more books about the Darkling. One can only hope!

3. Patrick Ness
Again, one of my favourite authors, that shares my political views. His books are so original, and it would be absolutely fascinating to have a chat with the man.

4. George R.R. Martin
He`s a bit of a troll, and I can relate to that. Let`s be honest, our meeting would probably consist of me begging him to finish ASOIAF series. And I`ll probably end up like Sheldon Cooper and his restraining orders, cause the man is tired of that.

5. J.K. Rowling
We`d all love to meet this amazing woman based on our endless Harry Potter love. But she`s also the definition of success cause she was broke when she wrote HP and now she`s mega-rich. Also, she`s pretty savage on Twitter, and again, sarcasm is my second language.

6. Stephen King
This would be such an awkward meeting because I have seen every adaptation of his books. But never read his novels *gulp*. I mean, I am starting "IT" this month, and by the time this fantasy meeting would take place, I would have finished all of his novels. I do know that he`s very critical with his adaptations, so we`d definitely have some interesting debates. I`d state that "The Shining" was great, he`d say I`m the Jon Snow of movies...and we`d both agree that the new "IT" is cool.

7. Becky Albertalli
She writes such quirky characters, I cannot help but feel she`s a fun person to be around. Hopefully, she would get past my rant review of "Leah on the Offbeat", and see all the love I have for "Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda".

To make things interesting, I`ve decided to include three authors that are no longer with us. Let`s be honest, the chances of meeting the people mentioned above are slim. A time machine seems more likely, which would also give me the chance to meet these classics. So, my first pick is Jane Austen based on her interesting life. Then I`d pick Fitzgerald, so we`d go to a party and have a good time. And last, you can`t say bro without Poe. Sorry, that was lame. But he was a fascinating character.

  1. Literally every name on this list would be on my list. I actually met Patrick Ness at a signing once but didn't get to chat to him (cause his queue was ridiculous) and I agree with you it would be so interesting to talk to him!

  2. OMG, so much yes to Adam Silvera and Becky Albertalli. They look like they have so much fun together, so ideally I'd want to meet them both at the same time and we could participate in Harry Potter trivia and go see a Broadway show together. A girl can dream.

    And obviously, the list couldn't be complete without J.K. Rowling. She is the ultimate bucket list item when it comes to dream meetings.

  3. I think meeting Stephen King would be amazing and not nearly as nerve wracking as meeting J. K. Rowling. He seems so relatable. :)

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thank you!

    1. Meeting Mary Shelley and Lord Byron would be a very interesting night. I don`t know why I automatically assumed you`d meet them at night:))

  6. I'm sure George RR Martin gets the "When is Winds of Winter coming out" question all the time. I've never met Stephen King, but I've been to his house once (the outside, we saw it from the street).

    1. Seeing the house is good. I suppose it was a regular house and not a haunted mansion, but still:))
