Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday! Today we’re talking about bookish people we’d like to meet. I’m focusing on authors, book characters and book bloggers today, so let’s get into it!
I’m a total awkward bean so meeting these people would be so stressful for me, but still it would also be such a wonderful experience that I feel like it would be worth it!
Annette Marie – She’s been my favorite author for so many years now and I’d love to meet her in person and thank her for creating all of my favorite fictional worlds and characters!
TJ Klune – Though I still have a huuuge backlist of books I need to read by TJ Klune, he’s rapidly becoming one of my favorite authors. His books always feel like that perfect balance of an emotional gutpunch and a shot of serotonin at the same time.
Leigh Bardugo – Another favorite author of mine – she also just seems so incredibly cool and like a really nice person so I’d love to meet her.
Christina Lauren – Technically Christina Hobbs and Lauren Billings are a writer duo, not just one writer, but I’d love to meet both of them! They write some of my favorite romances and they are also huge BTS fans so I feel like we could chat about them for a bit 🙂
I tried NOT to include any book characters written by the above authors (because otherwise this would probably be a list of all of their characters, let’s be honest) so here we go:
Kat from the Night Huntress series by Jeaniene Frost – She’s so fun and badass and I feel like she would be a great friend to have.
Manon from the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas – Could Manon kill me with just one hand? Yes. That said, I love her so much I’d love to meet her anyway.
Elisabeth and Nathaniel from the Sorcery of Thorns series by Margaret Rogerson – Ah, both of these are just such great and fun characters, I’d love to meet them.
L and Light from Death Note by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata – I know I’d probably end up being a casualty in the cat-and-mouse game these two play. But hey, I just want to meet them and imply they could accomplish anything AND actually be good friends if they’d just get over themselves? Yeah, my name would probably end up written down before I could finish my rant 🙂
I love this bookish little community so much and I’d LOVE to meet all of my fellow book bloggers. We could organize a little reading retreat, where we just read and eat and talk about books all day long and it would be so nice! Or just a bookshop date or whatever. It would be great, but alas quite difficult since most of us live on opposite sides of the world. Still, it’s a nice idea and I’d love to meet all of you one day!
