Top Ten Tuesday: Bookish People I Want to Meet (23)

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.This week's topic is Bookish People I Want to Meet!

Authors that are ALIVE!: 

1. J.K Rowling -  WHO WOULDN'T WANT TO MEET THE QUEEN OF THE MOST AMAZING BOOK SERIES IN THE UNIVERSE? I would be... I would be in tears if I met her. NO. I would probably be unconscious. I'm almost tearing up just thinking about ever getting the honour to meet the woman who wrote the books that have helped shape me as a person! The person who started my whole love for books when I was five.... She's just so important to me.... You know what? This calls for a GIF...
Danisnotonfire anyone? 

2. John Green - JOHN GREEN. JOHN GREEN. How could you not want to meet him!? He's just... He's just..... AWESOME. And that is what this is all about, isn't it? To not forget about being awesome? Decreasing World Suck and increasing World Awesome. Plus, his books... I mean... HIS BOOKS. I would be in such awe if I ever met him!
Oh yeah, another GIF

3. David Levithan - I can't even describe how much I want to meet him!!! His book Every Day kind of changed me, and I just finished Will Grayson, Will Grayson by David and John^ and that also kind of changed me... His writing's so powerful and unique and he's one of my favorite authors!!!

4. Kody Keplinger - I think she would be so much fun to hang out with! Her books are so down to earth and real... I love all of them! Kody seems like the type of person I would want to have a coffee with and chat about... BOOKS!

5. Tahereh Mafi - "But Kristy, you've already met her!" Well, yes, but I was so speechless and in awe that I barely formed a coherent sentence to say 'Hi!' I'd like to meet Tahereh again and actually talk to her instead of just tearing up and getting the book signed while I internally scream!


6. Ashely from FireStarBooks - I love all of her reviews and she's so hilarious online. I feel like we would get along great.

7. Raeleen from padfootandprongs07 (Youtube) - This is kind of odd, because I have actually met Ashlyen, the 'Prongs' of the duo because she's one of my close friend's sister! And believe it or not but I go to school with Raeleen's brother! So hopefully one day I'll get to meet her, because she's so hilarious and I love all of her videos!

8. Eileen from ***Singing and Reading in the Rain*** - I LOVE all of Eileen's reviews and she's such a talented musician! Her posts are always a delight to read and I love seeing all of them!

Dead Authors:

9. William Shakespeare - ... Y-yes... WHO WOULDN'T WANT TO MEET HIM!?!?! (Woah, flashback from #1) It's SHAKESPEARE! If I could go back in time and meet him it would be the most amazing thing in the universe.  And yes, I know he writes plays and poems, but he is still a Bookish Person in my books! And I think everyone else's in the world!

10. Edgar Allen Poe - I love all of Poe's works, so it would be really neat to meet the mastermind behind the madness. I don't know how to describe what it would be like to meet him...

OK! Well that was an exciting post! Sorry about all the GIFs, but the thought of meeting all these bookish people....
I mean, this list can go on forever! I would love to be able to meet Harper Lee, J.D. Salinger, Lois Lowry, Suzanne Collins, Jane Austen, the Bronte sisters, CHARLES DICKENS!!! So many! Leave me a link in the comments to your TTT about who you'd like to meet if you got the chance! I'd love to know!

Happy Tuesday!


  1. I think J.K Rowling is also my nº1 on this list.

  2. Really great list and I love the GIFs! Here’s my TTT: http://whatsontheshelf.wordpress.com/2012/09/04/top-ten-tuesday-21/

  3. I tried to stick to all live authors for my list (though one did sneak in there....), but I did list 10 dead authors I'd like to meet, too. Of course Shakespeare was on that list.

  4. i would love to meet j.k. rowling and william shakespeare too -- they are geniuses in my book! :D
