March 28: Top Ten Authors I’m Dying To Meet
For the purpose of this particular blog post, I’m going to omit all the amazing authors I’ve already met and focus on those whom I’d love to meet in the future: here’s hoping I meet some at YALC 2017!
N.B. I’ve already met: J.K. Rowling, Robert Galbraith, Malorie Blackman, Audrey Niffenegger, Sarah J. Maas, E. Lockhart, V.E. Schwab, Patrick Ness, Alwyn Hamilton, Taran Matharu.
1. Stephenie Meyer (The Twilight Saga)
As one of my favourite series, I’d love to meet Stephenie and hear he talk about her characters – and get my huge stack of books signed.
2. Suzanne Collins (The Hunger Games)
The simple fact that she penned my favourite trilogy of all time is enough reason to want to meet her, right?!
3. Kass Morgan (The 100)
I did hear Kass speak on a panel at YALC 2016, but at that point I hadn’t immersed myself in the world of The 100, which I have since become obsessed with.
4. Lee Child (Killing Floor)
I adore the Jack Reacher novels – in fact I am currently reading #4 – so I’d love to hear Lee speak about crime/thrillers and get my entire collection signed.
5. Melinda Salisbury (The Sin Eater’s Daughter)
Although I haven’t begun to read this trilogy, I follow Melinda on Twitter and think she’s hilarious (I’ll get onto reading the series soon, I swear).
6. Anthony Horowitz (Stormbreaker)
Having been a fan of this series since I was a kid, (and having many other of his novels on my TBR) it would be somewhat of a childhood dream to meet Anthony.
7. Rick Riordan (Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief)
How Rick manages to write as many novels as he does simply astounds me – I just cannot keep up – though I’m more interested in the subject matter he writes about than his novels themselves.
8. Cecelia Ahern (PS, I Love You)
If I’m in the mood for an adult contemporary, I rarely reach any further than Cecelia Ahern: I love her worlds and characters, and have done for over a decade.
9. John Green (Paper Towns)
Despite not being the biggest John Green fan (I actually think he is overrated) I do enjoy perusing his YouTube channel, especially when he’s talking about the importance of books and reading.
10. Caitlin Moran (How To Be A Woman)
I think Caitlin is a wonderful feminist icon for young women, and I’d love to hear her speak on a panel about her experiences.
