Top Ten Authors I’d Love to Meet

I have been lucky enough to meet a few authors, but because I’m in Australia and most of the super popular authors are american there are still plenty of authors who have not made the journey to this land down under. These are just some of the authors I would love to meet and have sign a book or two.

1. Leslye Walton, author of The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender. I would love to ask for her inspiration for this book.

2. Eowyn Ivey, author of  The Snow Child. Again, I would love to know where the idea for such a beautiful book came from.

3. S.E Hinton, author of The Outsiders. I would love to ask what it was like to write a book at such a young age and have it be so popular.

4. Richelle Mead, author of Vampire Academy. I would ask what its like writing books set in a different universe other than VA, after being in it for so long.

 

 

 

 

5. Marissa Meyer, author of Cinder. I can’t even think of anything to ask her, I feel as though I would just be mute with fangirling.

6. Felicia Day, author of  You’re Never Weird On The Internet (Almost). I don’t want to know much about the book, but I would love to meet her and ask her a few things about the community she has created.

7. Suzanne Collins, author of The Hunger Games. I would love to know her opinions on the movie adaptations, and her writing process.

 

 

 

 

8. Jean M. Auel, author of Clan of the Cave Bear. I would love to know how to researched and handled the progression of the story.

9. Sasha Alsberg, author of Zenith. While not my favourite book I really like her youtube and would love to meet her.

10. Caroline Kepnes, author of You. Just so I can ask her what on earth was happening haha.

Top Ten Tuesday – Surprising Books

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created over at Broke and the Bookish, but has now been taken over by That Artsy Reader Girl where every Tuesday, Top Ten things of anything are listed. Todays Top Ten things are:

Top Ten Books That Surprised Me

Now because I have had some good ad bad surprises I am going to include both! The books are not really in any sort of order.

Good Surprises

1. Wild by Cheryl Strayed. This was so surprising for me. I don’t normally do autobiographies but I adored this book. This is a theme for my first three books actually. All autobiographies and I loved.

2. You’re Never Weird On The Internet (Almost) by Felicia Day. Other than being a good story I think the way she did the audiobook is what really won me over.

3. Mao’s Last Dancer by Li Cunxin. SUCH an interesting story. Really based on these three books I should give more of a chance to autobiographies since apparently I like them.

 

 

 

 

4. We Were Liars by E. Lockhart. Granted some of my surprise was gone for this one because I knew one was coming, but I didn’t expect that.

5. Simon Vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli. I know I have put this on a few of these lists but I am still so surprised by how much I liked it. I am so looking forward to the movie!

 

 

 

 

 

Bad Surprises

6. Sex Criminals: One Weird Trick by Matt Fraction. I don’t know what I was expecting but. . . It wasn’t that.

7. The Glittering Court by Richelle Mead. After falling head over heals in love with her VA series I was very sad to find how little I was into this one.

8. Hush Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick. Everyone else seemed to loved this but I was so surprised by how much the writing irritated me.

 

 

 

 

9. Everything I Never Told you by Celeste Ng. The amount of dislike I felt for this book still surprises me since everyone else seems to love it.

10. Magonia by Maria Dahvana Headly. It still upsets me how little I liked this book.
