Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at The Broke and Bookish. Each week the bloggers at The Broke and The Bookish put out a topic, and discuss their top ten options for said topic. This week’s Top Ten is: Top Ten Authors You’d Love to Meet.
Kevin Hearne Author of the Iron Druid series. He’s an incredible author with an amazing talent for world shaping, creating characters that stick with you long after the book is finished, and dropping some of the best humor into books. He’s so talented and I’d love to just pick his brain and talk to him for a little while.
Tamora Pierce. This woman was so influential in shaping what I read and my introduction to fantasy/high fantasy. I love her books, and I have started to collect them over the years. She’s got great strong, independent female lead characters who are good role models for young adult readers. Her world building is lush and descriptive and she’s so insanely talented.
Madeline L’Engle If I had a time machine, I’d go back to when she was alive and again, just say thank you. She’s created characters that stand the test of time–strong female, SCIENCE LOVING female characters who make a mark in their world. Meg isn’t a damsel in distress, she’s a whirlwind of spitfire and sass.
C.S. Lewis Again, I’d need a time machine, but I think it would be so worth it to sit down and have a cup of coffee and just talk to this man. His writing has guided me throughout the years, both his fiction and his essays/personal reflection books. I’m in awe of what he created and I’d love to just listen to him talk about the worlds and characters that have inspired so many.
