Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. This week's topic is the top ten authors I really want to meet. There is so many authors out there that I would love to meet so it's been hard to narrow it down to ten.
J.K. Rowling - How could I not include J.K.? As I've probably said before she is the author that started my obsession with books. She is Queen!
Michael Crichton - Two words: Jurassic Park. Another obsession of mine is dinosaurs - I will watch/read anything about dinosaurs. Michael Crichton wrote two books about dinosaurs so there was no way that he would not make it onto this list.
J.R.R. Tolkien - He created Middle earth people! Too come up with so many characters/places etc is amazing! And he didn't even write it down to begin with... I barely manage to remember what I had for breakfast never mind a whole world!
William Goldman - As you have probably seen me mention before I love The Princess Bride. It's one of my all time favourites. I have so many fond memories of the book and the movie. Of course William Goldman would be on this list.
Meg Cabot - I was obsessed with he books during my early teenage years. I would purely like to thank her.
Jacqueline Wilson - As above.
Harper Lee - I read To Kill A Mockingbird at school, I didn't like it then. But then I read it again a few years later and I loved it. It's just so thought-provoking! I can't wait to read Go Set a Watchman either.
Roald Dahl - Along the same lines as Meg Cabot and Jacqueline Wilson. I read so many of his books during my childhood. In school we were always reading on of his books or watching an adaptation.
Phillip Pullman - Again another childhood favourite... I'm sensing a slight trend here...
Stephen Fry - I cheat... I've not actually read any of his books yet. But he is absolutely amazing and has such a vast knowledge that I can't wait to get my hand on one of his books. Plus he narrates the Harry Potter audiobooks!
