This is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish where each week bloggers share a list of books for the prompt given. Today’s suggested topic is:
Top Ten Authors I’m Dying To Meet / Ten Authors I Can’t Believe I’ve Met (some other “meeting authors” type spin you want to do)
I have decided to list both because I really loved both versions of this topic! Here are the top 5 authors that I have already met as well as the top 5 authors that I would like to meet. Living in Australia I haven’t gotten much of a chance to meet authors. I haven’t met many authors.
Top 5 Authors I have met
Cassandra Clare & Holly Black
(The Mortal Instruments, The Infernal Devices, The Dark Artifices)
(Magisterium, The Darkest Part of the Forest, The Coldest Girl of Coldtown)
I met Cassandra Clare & Holly Black at the Brisbane Writers Festival. I am a huge Mortal Instruments fan, so this was a surreal moment for me. It was also a pleasure meeting Holly Black. They were the first authors I ever met. This day was pretty special for me.
I went to the Jasper Jones movie preview, which was followed by an in-cinema Q&A with the Director and author, then a book signing.
Nicholas & Alison Lockel
I met Nicholas and Alison at Supernova last year, I’d actually never heard of them before. They were selling and Signing their Zarkora Series. The first book was only $5, so I couldn’t resist. I Still haven’t read it though.
Top 5 Authors I’d love to Meet
(The Murder Complex)
I will admit I’ve never actually read any of her books. I started reading The Murder Complex a while ago and I’m yet to finish it but I would love to meet her!
(Deltora Quest, Teen Power inc, Fairy Realm, Rondo, The Three Doors)
I grew up with her books – of course I want to meet her! I grew up reading The Deltora Quest Series, and am absolutely in love with them.
(Crank, Impulse, Burned, Tricks, Tilt, Identical, The You I’ve Never Known)
Words cannot describe how much I Love her books and her writing. I wouldn’t know what to say to be honest but it’d be great just to meet her.
(Shiver, The Raven Cycle)
I love her Raven Cycle series, and I think she’s ridiculously talented. I have actually only read The Raven Boys by her, but that was a work of art and I have heard so much more about her other books.
(The Land of Stories)
I Love The Land of Stories. Now I need to meet the author who wrote these amazing books.
Bonus: The Brontë sisters
(Jane Eyre, Shirley, Villette, The Professor)
(Agnes Grey, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall)
I couldn’t choose which Brontë sister to pick, so I’ve gone for all three. What a talented family!
