Top Ten Tuesday #20

Top Ten Tuesday #20

FREEBIE - Top Ten Authors I Want To Meet!!.

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish and consists of them picking a topic each week for us bloggers to list our Top Ten.

This is a hard one, so bare with me guys :P I had a list of 25 starting out you know :P 

1. Leigh Bardugo
I really want to meet Leigh Bardugo! Even though so far I've only read one of her books, but she came to Belfast or Dublin sometime last year and I couldn't go... I was so sad, but in the future I will go to a Leigh Bardugo signing!!!
Shadow and Bone (The Grisha, #1)Six of Crows (The Dregs, #1)Leigh Bardugo

2. Marie Lu 
Marie Lu is just an amazing author! I have loved all the books she's written so far and I am certain that I will love all the ones she writes in the future too.. So I obviously want to meet her.
Legend (Legend, #1)The Young Elites (The Young Elites, #1)Marie Lu

3. Mira Grant
This author is just so amazing! I've read both of the first books in her series Newsflesh and Parasitology and cannot wait to continue on with both series and finish them off, so of course I want to meet the author who wrote these fantastic books!

8. Sarah J. Maas
I love Sarah J. Mass's writing. Literally, after the first word I just got sucked in and I really want to meet her. I even contemplated going to England to see her when she was on her A Court Of Thorns And Roses tour but alas I couldn't and I just have to wait for her to come to Ireland!

And that is the topic that I chose for this Freebie Top Ten Tuesday. What authors would you like to meet? Have you met any of the authors I've mentioned above? 


  1. Great idea for today's TTT :-D I think my number 1 (author I'd like to meet) will always be J. K. Rowling! I have nooo clue what I'd even say to her - but I'd love her to sign my books! I hope you get to meet some of these authors in the future :-D

    Sarah @ Novels & Whimsy

    1. Thank you! I actually haven't read anything by J.K. Rowling yet, I know the shame!, but I hope you do get to meet her some day and get all those books signed :)

  2. Love Sarah J Maas' books!

  3. How did you narrow it down to ten? I don't know if I'd be able to do it. I love your list and many of the authors on this list.

    My TTT: Marie @ Pages to Explore

  4. I've met Leigh Bardugo and Marie Lu and they are two of the nicest people. They were so friendly and just plain nice. I loved meeting them. Sarah Mass was at the festival I went to last year, but I'm not a fan so I didn't go meet her. I think Lani Taylor was there too.

    Really liked this idea!

    1. Oh My God I'm so jealous of you :p I will hopefully meet them one day even if I have to travel abroad to do so! Thank you :)

  5. Hi! I heard Leigh Bardugo speak in Southern California. She gave a free workshop on query writing. Then she was so gracious to answer individual questions and sign books. I think ti was before Shadow and Bone really took off. Great idea for this week! (And I looove Ireland, just as an aside. haha) :)

    My TTT

    1. Oh wow!! That would have been so good to attend! Thank you!! Haha I get people saying that a lot :p

  6. I get to meet one of my favorite authors (Laura Frantz) in 2 weeks and I am so excited! My TTT

    1. Awww it's just the best experience to meet one of your favorite author. I hope you have a great time!

  7. I would love to meet Marissa Meyer as well!! But my top 3 (at the moment) are J. K. Rowling, George R. R. Martin and Rick Riordan. I will literally die if I met any of them hahaha

    1. I was going to put on George R. R. Martin but I've only read one of his books so far so I've left him for a later post :p Thanks Noelia!

  8. I would be crazy happy to meet Marissa Meyer!
