Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. If you love books and making lists, this is the meme for you! This week’s 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)
If I am honest, I am simply happy to read and enjoy books without feeling the need to meet the authors, so this is a really hard topic for me! Without any authors I am ‘dying to meet’ or ‘can’t believe I have met’, here instead is a list of ten authors, listed alphabetically, who I think I would have a jolly good time with if I did/had by chance met them:
~ 1 ~
Yes, I understand I would need a little time travel to achieve this, but hey if she was even half as witty as her books we’d have a hoot together.
~ 2 ~
Having exchanged a few pleasant emails with Linda, I think she seemed lovely enough to spend an afternoon chatting and sipping tea with…you never know I could get the scoop on any new books too!
~ 3 ~
I think we have a good chance of getting on as Kearsley just seems to write the type of stories and female characters I dig…great minds perhaps?
~ 4 ~
C S Lewis
Yes, time travel required again, but I think it goes without saying it would have been amazing to be back in Oxford to join the Inklings for a pint and pick this great author’s mind on faith and Narnia!
~ 5 ~
After reading two of Losada’s crazy, brutally honest, inspirational books, I think we’d have a great time together.
~ 6 ~
Slightly cheating as we have been blogging friends for a few years now, but still Cheryl is a wonderful author I know I would get on with.
~ 7 ~
George RR Martin
Being the creating of the epic A Song of Ice and Fire series…he’s got to be interesting, right?
~ 8 ~
Daphne du Maurier
As the queen of gothic, suspense novels I think du Maurier would be a fascinating person to chat with on a sunny day in Cornwall.
~ 9 ~
Well simply this man is a legend of humour and fantasy, who I think would have been an absolute hoot to have met.
~ 10 ~
Almost ditto to C S Lewis above, except I would pick this great author’s mind on Middle-Earth instead.
