Top Ten Tuesday (4)

Top Ten Tuesday: A Chance Meeting

For this week, the wonderful ladies at The Broke and the Bookish have dedicated the Top Ten Tuesday meme to authors that we'd die to meet. The following is my list.

1. William Shakespeare- Prolific and profound, the works of Shakespeare are relevant even now hundreds of years after they were written. However, there has always been the controversarial undertone. Did he really write every play by himself?

2. Libba Bray- She is hilarious. Oh, and her books are amazing.

3. Jane Austen- I'm interested in how she would view women and society in the modern day.

4.Stephanie Perkins- Completely adorable books. Enough said.

5. J.K. Rowling- I recently saw the final Harry Potter movie (My boyfriend won me tickets from a radio show, thanks, Dan!). Needless to say, I have questions.

6. Kathy Reichs

7. Maureen Johnson

8. Max Allan Collins

9. James Patterson- How does he write so many books?

10. Rick Riordian

That's all from me! Who are you dying to meet?

  1. I wonder than about James Patterson, too. All those big names who seem to have new books once a month: Janet Evanovich, Danielle Steel, etc.

  2. Jane Austen is on so many lists. I love her! :)
    I really enjoyed Libba Bray's Gemma Doyle trilogy.

  3. I have Shakespeare on my list too :)

    I really hate the Shakespeare "controversy", we're never going to know conclusively so why tarnish his name unwarranted? Sorry you just triggered my "Shakespeare is a god" switch!

  4. I have James Patterson and Jane Austen on my list , William Shakespeare and Kathy Reichs would be great :) New Follower

  5. Ha! I love that you 'have questions' for JK Rowling. There are a few authors I'd like to question too.

  6. Super list! Yes I too have questions for Ms. JK. :)

  7. Ah, I've actually met Libba Bray and she is HILARIOUS. Also, how cool is it that you got to see Harry Potter early? Jealous! Great list :)
