There are so many authors whose brains I would like to pick. Listening to authors talk about their work and careers is so fascinating. I got the chance to meet one of my favorite authors, Kristin Hannah, at her book signing for The Great Alone earlier this year, and it was such a cool and new experience for me. I definitely want to attend more of them. This week’s Top Ten Tuesday from That Artsy Reader Girl is Ten Authors I’d Love to Meet.
I can’t even imagine how I would react. I would be so completely starstruck and flabbergasted. I would definitely cry. She is my queen.
I just want to pick his brilliant brain. I’ve watched so many videos and interviews with him, and I feel like he is such a cool dude. I also kind of want to shake him to find out where his third book is….
I love him so much. He wrote some of my favorite books of all time, and I just want to hear him talk about them. I also love that he writes about strong women and flawed characters.
I feel like she was such an interesting woman. I am only a recent fan, and the more of her work I read, the more I love her. I feel like she must have been so sassy and fierce in her time and I would love to talk to her.
Meg is the author who has had the longest impact on my life, as I have been reading her books FOREVER. Another one I would probably cry upon meeting, she has created some of my most well loved fictional characters and her books always feel like coming home.
As the avid fantasy lover that I am, how could I not want to meet Tolkien? He was the father of my favorite genre and The Lord of the Rings is pure genius. Any tidbits I could get from him would make my inner nerd freak out.
I found Kate Morton last year, and she quickly became one of my favorite authors. From following her on social media, she seems like the coolest person, and I feel like we have a lot in common and would get along really well.
Sarah J. Maas
The worlds and characters this woman creates. Incredible. I would LOVE to hear all about her process and ask her all of my questions.
I love The Thousandth Floor series. It’s clever and addicting. Katharine McGee seems really fun, and I love how active she is with her interactions with fans on social media.
I want to hear how she came up with the idea for Three Dark Crowns and her whole thought process while writing. I’m still reeling from the third book, and I have so many questions!!
I want so much more information about The Red Queen universe!! I’m not ready to be done! I would also love to hear her thoughts about turning it into a film because the writing and the plot are so cinematic.
