[Top Ten Tues] #4

Top Ten Tues is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke & The Bookish 

This week's Top Ten:
Rewind [We chose Authors we'd DIE to meet]

Kait's Picks:

John Green - I haven't worked my way through all of JG's works, but I am absolutely in love with what I have read. Throw in the hilarious Vlog Brothers posts on YouTube and I'm completely smitten with John Green. I would LOVE to meet him.

Megan McCafferty - Megan's Jessica Darling series is one of my all time favorites. I have been in love with Jessica Darling and Marcus Flutie since 11th grade, so meeting Megan has been a dream of mine for so long. I did win a signed book from here recently, and I fangirled for over an hour.

Cassandra Clare - I'm pretty sure I would die if I met Cassandra, but I hope that I do one day! I admit I had a tough time with one book in The Mortal Instruments series, but it's still one of my favorites. 

Sarah Dessen - I have been reading Sarah Dessen books since I was in middle school. She was, and still is, one of my favorite contemporary YA authors.

J.K. Rowling - Obviously I want to meet the genius behind my all time favorite series. I shouldn't even need an explanation for her. :]


Beth's Picks:

Dr. Suess    
Who wouldn't want to meet the late Dr. Suess!? He's just so epic. Dr. Suess changed the way I think about life. He tought me that it was OKAY to be who I am, not who someone else wants me to be. He is a pivitol learning point in every young child's life.                       
Dr. Seuss
Just a few [of my favs] Books by Dr. Suess
One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fis...How the Grinch Stole ChristmasThe Cat in the HatGreen Eggs and HamFox in SocksOh, the Places You'll Go!

I love love love her. I'm seriously in awe of her writing. I fell in love with To Stand Beside Her, which takes a lot of guts to play out the story the way she did. I had some SERIOUS book hangovers from her novels. I  can't wait to read what she puts out next, and if I ever get the chance to be somewhere to meet her!
B. Kristin McMichael
Books By B. Kristin
To Stand Beside HerThe Legend of the Blue Eyes

What a phenomenal writer. This is probably going to be my favorite paranormal romance of all times, forever. I love these tigers. The imagery that this woman creates, my goddess. I can only imagine what she will come out with next, and YES I'm highly anticipating ANYTHING she writes!
Colleen Houck
Books by Colleen:
Tiger's Curse (The Tiger Sa...Tiger's Quest (The Tiger Sa...Tiger's Voyage (The Tiger S...Tiger's Destiny (The Tiger ...

I absolutely adore this woman. I may be just a tad partial because she's from RI. I've signed copies of both her works, thanks to a mutual friend... but I've yet to meet her. I wish I could have taken one of the writing classes that she taught. Gah! Seriously though, Rebecca pours her heart and soul into her work [like most authors] and you can REALLY tell. I would love to run into Rebecca somewhere around town, but I don't want to seem stalkerish lol! 
Rebecca Maizel
Books by Rebecca:
Infinite Days (Vampire Quee...Stolen Nights (Vampire Quee...

  1. I've met John Green and Lauren Oliver! Meeting Cassandra Clare would probably make my life the same with Colleen Houck. I'm actually meeting Colleen Houck at RT next month and I am dying of excitement :). Great list guys!
