Top Ten Authors I REALLY Want To Meet

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and you can find more about this meme here. It's been ages since I did a Top Ten Tuesday but I thought I'd jump back on the bandwagon this week and talk about the top ten authors I want to meet most.

1. J.K Rowling
Let's just get it out of the way and put Jo first on this list. She's a given, really.

2. Daniel Handler
This is the guy behind Lemony Snicket — my favourite childhood author. The reason I fell in love with reading all those years ago. I couldn't leave him off this list.

3. Tahereh Mafi
I would like to demand my own personal Warner. Also, I'd really like writing lessons from Tahereh because MY GOD GIRL, HOW DO YOU DO THE THING?

4. Patrick Ness
The good ole Nessy... I literally have no idea where that came from. Anyway, Patrick Ness is one of my favourite authors and just AH. This one is actually hopefully coming true this year... I promise I won't call him 'Nessy' to his face.

5. Maureen Johnson
I think Maureen Johnson is hilarious — honestly, I've never met a book of hers that I haven't liked. I think she'd be a lot of fun to listen to in person.

6. Maggie Stiefvater
This has actually happened. I met Maggie in 2011 (wow, that was a long time ago) but I'd really like to meet her again because The Raven Boys. (Look at me being super young and cute with Maggie)

7. Eva Pohler
Eva is one of the loveliest authors I know and I would absolutely love to get the chance to finally meet her and thank her in person for everything she's sent and done for Chami and I over the years. One day!

8. Agatha Christie
I tried to keep this to authors who are actually alive, but I couldn't help this one. I would really, really like to have some stern words with Agatha for completely destroying my life. COMPLETELY DESTROYING MY LIFE, DO YOU HEAR ME AGATHA?

9. Rick Riordan
I would just force him to write ALL of the Percabeth. 

10. Sarah J. Maas
Did you honestly think you'd make it through a post without me mentioning this goddess? I would honestly sell my soul to meet Sarah — she's probably my favourite author and you can bet that I would cry my eyes out if I ever got the chance to meet her.
