Authors I Wish I Could Talk To (Even Though It Would Probably End In Disaster)

Yes, I know, I am late on this week’s Top Ten Tuesday (hosted by The Broke and The Bookish) prompt. But I really wanted to do it, so here you go.

Authors are my celebrities. If you ask me who my favorite actor is I’d probably mumble something about that one guy in that one movie who was cute. And if you asked me about my favorite singers, you wouldn’t know who they were anyway so it wouldn’t even matter. BUT AUTHORS, on the other hand, ARE WONDERFUL. Ask me who my favorite author is and I will glare at you because how can you make me choose?!? Give me the name of any book I’ve read and a ton I haven’t and I can name the author. So basically, I know my authors.

In real life I am very quiet and often awkward, so while I kind of want to meet a favorite writer someday, it also kind of terrifies me!! What if I sound stupid?? What if I accidentally insult them or their books?!? (Don’t ask. I can totally imagine that happening…)Β  Or what if I just accidentally run away?!?!?!?

But because one can dream, here is my list of authors I would love to meet.

Marissa Meyer

Why I want to meet her:

Marissa Meyer really is the author who got me reading YA!! Before that I was stuck in a rut and didn’t know what to read. That was even before I had Goodreads, so I really had very little knowledge of the multitude of wonderful books in the YA category.

If I met her I would have to try really hard not to swoon over Jest from Heartless and of course I would tell her that I cried for three hours after reading, because writers rejoice over the tears of their readers. (Or maybe writer-me is just really weird?!?)

What would probably happen:

I would probably stammer that I liked her books. Then run away.

Frances Hardinge

Why I want to meet her:

Frances Hardinge is my absolute favorite author(I guess I do pick favorites, but that really is saying A LOT) and she is absolutely brilliant.

If I met her I would just tell her how much I loved her books…

What would probably happen:

… because if I tried to say anything else I’d probably end up sounding stupid. Or faint. Or do both at the same time because who knows??

Leigh Bardugo

Why I want to meet her:

SIX OF CROWS!!!

What would probably happen:

I would probably end up mumbling gibberish about beautiful crows and how I’m dangerously close to deciding to name my future son Kaz Brekker.

Jodi Lynn Anderson

Why I want to meet her:

Well, obviously I loved her books, but she also seems like she’s a very thoughtful, interesting person. I’d love to ask her about her writing process.

What would probably happen:

I don’t know. I honestly probably just wouldn’t know what to say.

Stephanie Garber

Why I want to meet her:

Not only did I love Caraval, Stephanie Garber just seems like such a kind person!! And I’d love to ask her about how she managed to trick me so thoroughly with her WONDERFUL book.

What would probably happen:

I feel like I would be okay!! Sometimes life works out, I guess, and maybe this would be the time.

Now if only I could actually meet one of these people… *sigh*

  1. I love your post and I totally relate to your “What would probably happen” scenarios! πŸ˜€ I totally see them happening to me too since I’m also really awkward and shy. I’d love to meet Marissa Meyer and Leigh Bardugo as well!
