Top Ten Authors I'm Dying To Meet / Ten Authors I Can't Believe I've Met

                        Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.



Top Ten Authors I'm Dying To Meet / Ten Authors I Can't Believe I've Met  (some other "meeting authors" type spin you want to do)






                                                          Tamora Pierce.









                                                             Jennifer Crusie








                                                  Maria Dahvana Headley







                                                Alexandra Bracken






                                                        Meg Cabot









                                       

                                           Morgan Rhodes/ Michell Rowen
                                                     
                     I love her books I only read 3 of her series and Falling Kingdom is my favorite!





                                                                   Ruta Sepetys
                            I recently read Between Shades of Gray and it was super duper good. I cried like a baby. I still cry when I think about it, and I am sure if I meet her and talk about this book I will cry too.



                                                              Diana Gabaldon.
                               I love her Outlander books. I only read the first 2






And I have a few more authors I like, but I got tired of doing this post hahaha So I will post pictures of authors I meet when I went to TX to meet Allyson and another friend Betsy and we all went to this big book signing.




               Melissa de la Cruz was sooooo nice and very friendly! I loved her!




                                John Cory Whaley was hilarious!


  

                                                                 Laini Tayloy







                        Shannon Hale was super nice!
 My daughter, Cecilia,  loved her Monster High books so I brought them with me to have them signed and Allyson made that note for the picture!

 This signing was, I guess, for middle school kids I am pretty sure we were the only adults there
so he asked Allyson and I if we were librarians hahahaha, we were like " nah, we are just book lovers" hahaha

  1. WOW! So many amazing authors; I'm jealous, Mariela! In which city was this book event? I would guess Austin, but I'm curious. I love author events; I wish I had access to more of them. Thanks for sharing these great photos!

    1. I believe so, I know we drove like 3 hours to get there, I can't remember, this was a few years ago. I wish they do event like this in West Virginia :(

  8. Great list! Alexandra Bracken and Morgan Rhodes are definitely on my wishlist as well :) And you've got to meet some amazing authors already as well, that's amazing!

  9. Wow Tamora Pierce has written more books than I realized. Gabaldon was in my neck of the woods a couple years ago she was speaking in the same town I was vacationing in. And I think Shannon Hale would be a riot, I've liked what I've read of hers.

  10. Oh man, I'm so jealous that you got to meet Rachel Hawkins! I love Rebel Belle and would absolutely love to meet her some day. I got to see Victoria Schwab speak at the Boston Teen Author Festival back in September which was nice. I was going to actually meet her, but the line for her signing was soooo long and I didn't feel like waiting, haha.

  17. So many awesome authors on your list. I hope you enjoyed meeting all of them.

  18. It looks like you guys had a fabulous time!! I think it's hilarious that there weren't more adult readers there and that the one author was surprised you weren't librarians. But then again, I'm immersed in the book community, so adults who read young adult and middle school fiction aren't weird to me.
