You know, sometimes I feel a little out of place in the blogging community just because I don’t really happen to go to author events all that often. I have trouble finding out about them and then when I do find out about them, they’re usually at super inconvenient times or places for me. So the stars have just never aligned for me to actually attend an author event. I’ve been to a few book festivals in the past but that was so long ago, I barely even remember who I saw (but I think Neil Pasricha was one of them). All this is basically to say that I really haven’t met any of my favourite authors. WHICH IS SO SAD because authors are just the best people and how cool would it be to meet the genius mastermind behind your favourite characters and stories??
These nine authors are not only some of my favourite authors but also they just seem like the coolest people ever which is why I would love to meet them given the chance to do so one day. BASICALLY this is my author wishlist, like all the authors I want to meet so super badly. (Also I just realized that all nine of these authors are women? That was not on purpose… But girl power, right?)
So in no particular order, the nine fabulous authors I’d give anything to meet…
J.K. ROWLINGI almost feel like this list would be a sham if I didn’t have the QUEEN on it. The person behind one of my favourite series of all time and some of the best characters I have read EVER. Seriously though, don’t you ever just sit back and think to yourself how complex Harry Potter truly is and how damn smart J.K. Rowling is for pulling all that out of her head? But in addition to being an incredibly intelligent and talented and kind person, she’s also the absolute COOLEST. Like I don’t know if you’ve seen her Twitter but she is always dropping TRUTHS. Like her response to the girl who tweeted about how she never perceived Dumbldedore as gay? Or when she replied to someone asking about Hogwarts letters and said that we all secretly got one? Or when she replied to Matthew Lewis about his photoshoot? Like BESIDES just being an amazing author already, J.K. Rowling goes out and becomes the best human also so you know, I don’t really know why you WOULDN’T want to meet her.
SARAH J. MAASSarah, I need to meet you. Because THRONE. OF. GLASS. That series has made me a lover of fantasy once again. Like to be clear, I never had anything against fantasy except for a long time I always preferred contemporary to fantasy and though I still kinda do, reading Throne of Glass has reminded me of how awesome fantasy can be as well. I have never fallen in love with a series so fast and had so much fun reading a series so even though all the Throne of Glass books aren’t even out, I am firmly in the Sarah J. Maas fangirl squad and there really isn’t going to be anything moving me from my spot.
JENNY HANI love Jenny Han. Ever since I read Shug when I was 8, I have been a huge Jenny Han fan. Although I
There you have it, the 9 authors I would give anything to meet! Now I’m going to ask you: which authors are you dying to meet? And also, HAVE YOU MET ANY OF THESE AUTHORS?? AND CAN YOU ATTEST TO THEIR FABULOSITY / AWESOMENESS?
