Top Ten Tuesday

Today  The Broke and the Bookish asks the question: Top Ten Authors I Would DIE to meet (living or dead)

So here they are in no particular order.

1 Kate Griffin author of the Mathew Swift Novels.
Oh please, like you didn't see that coming!

2 Jane Austen
And you know you saw that one coming too.

3 Brad Meltzer
One day, one day.

4 Christopher Paolini.
I just found out he's coming to my area this year, so my dream is coming true!!!

5 Mary Shelley
Frankenstein is my favorite book of all time and I once saw a biography on Shelley and, wow, she led a weird life. I'd love to meet her.

6 Neal Shusterman
I have to believe this one isn't impossible.

7 Gard D. Schmidt
How could I not?!

8 Elizabeth Gaskell
And the first thing I'd ask was, "How were you going to end Wives and Daughters?"

9 Deak Koontz.
And my question for him would be, "Come on! You totally left Odd just hanging! When are you finishing his story?!"

10 Bram Stoker
Cause who wouldn't want to meet the genius behind Dracula?

This list was too hard! I want to meet ton's more! J.K Rowling, Robin McKinley, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Carrie Jones, Stephan King. I could go on and on! Sigh.


  1. Mary Shelley would be incredibly interesting to meet, I wish I'd remembered her!

  2. Some good ones here, I added Jane Austen :) New Follower

  3. Nice list. I admit that there's a few on here that I just don't know. But thanks to Google, I soon will!

    Elizabeth Gaskell's North and South is on my to be read pile. I'm excited to read it!

    And Bram Stoker is a great one to add. I didn't even think of him!

    Here’s My Top Ten Tuesday This Week

  4. Gary Schmidt! I wish I'd thought of him! I loved Wednesday Wars!

  5. Kayleigh, Wouldn't she, though?

    Phantom Paragrapher, Thanks for stopping by. I couldn't make this list without Jane Austen.

    Jenica, I should have left links to each author but I was being lazy. Thanks for visiting.

    Kathy, I know, It's one of my favorite books ever! I'd love to meet the man behind such hilarity and heart.

  6. +JMJ+

    The complete Neal Shusterman tab on my blog is "Neal Shusterman--Will You Marry Me". =P So he'd be on my list, too.

    (Yeah, he's already married . . . but a reader can dream, can't she?)

  7. I totally forgot Mary Shelley. She would be in my top ten for sure.

    Come visit me at The Scarlet Letter.

  8. Enbrethiliel, LOL, I certainly hope a girl can dream. I'm still hoping for Markus Zusak to leave his wife and come marry me!

    LBC, I know, there's ton's I forgot too. Thanks for stopping by.

  9. Wait! What's this about Christopher P.?

  10. Hope you have fun at the Christopher Paolini signing! I went for his for Brisingr. It took me 3-4 hours to get it signed! Nice list :D

  11. Suey, I know! Jenni Elyse and ??? Kathy ??? told me he was coming to the Provo library in December.

    iLuvReadingTooMuch, Oh wow! I hope it doesn't take THAT long for me but it would be worth it.

  12. I tried becoming a follower and Google wouldn't let me. I'll try again some other time. I like your list of authors and questions you'd ask. Good way of putting your list together.
