Top Ten Tuesday: Authors I Really Want To Meet


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
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
    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
    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
    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
    Meg Cabot - I was obsessed with he books during my early teenage years. I would purely like to thank her.

    Jacqueline Wilson
    Jacqueline Wilson - As above.

     Harper Lee
    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
    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.
     Philip Pullman
     Phillip Pullman - Again another childhood favourite... I'm sensing a slight trend here...

    Stephen Fry 
    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!

      1. I limited myself to living authors so Roald Dahl wasn't on mine but he is one of my favourite authors. JK Rowling was in my list too. I absolutely loved Jacqueline Wilson's books when I was a younger teenager, so I would like to meet her for the same reasons as you. Meg Cabot is also a good one, although she wasn't on my list.

        1. Yeah, I thought of limiting to living authors but my mind went totally blank so I decided to expand.

      3. What a depressing moment in your current read. I hope no one dies of boredom or something equally tragic! ;) My TT
        Rowling, Tolkin, and Fry would probably make my list as well. ;)

        1. Unfortunately, I will never know. I just couldn't get into the story so it was a DNF

        1. Yeah, she always seems so down to earth when you see her in interviews and I think it's great that she is always giving us little extra tidbits about Harry Potter

      9. I would love to meet JK Rowling and Meg Cabot, but for some reason I didn't add them to my list. They are there in spirit! Great list!

      10. Good Teaser. At least he has a dog for companionship!

        1. I'm not actually sure what it is that he has with him. It's definitely not a dog - it hatched from an egg. But I will never know, I just couldn't get into the story so it was a DNF

      11. It would be awesome to meet Harper Lee. I hadn't thought about adding her to my post this week. I look forward to reading her new book later this year.

        Here's a link to my TTT post for this week: http://captivatedreader.blogspot.com/2015/05/top-ten-tuesday-ten-authors-i-really.html

        1. Yeah, I just looked at the books I had on my shelves to help me choose this week and To Kill a Mockingbird just stood out.

      12. Ooh, I loved Jurassic Park too! And Stephen Fry is a good pick - his books are superb :)

        1. I'm slightly obsessed with Jurassic Park and I can't wait for Jurassic World to come out either even if it is a movie.
