Ten Authors I Really Want to Meet at BEA
Please note that I'm taking a hiatus on Top Ten Tuesdays and will begin using the meme, Waiting on Wednesday instead! This is my last one!
Authors are honestly the best people you'll ever meet. They're the ONLY PEOPLE IN THE WORLD WHO UNDERSTANDS US AND THE LOVE OF BOOKS AND WRITING AND FICTIONAL CHARACTERS. Since I'm heading over to BEA IN TWO WEEKS FROM TODAY, let's talk about which authors I'd like to meet there!
1. Richelle Mead, Soundless
AGH! Well, I love Richelle's writing and Vampire Academy simply was the best. I'm super excited for Soundless, and I really want to ask her some questions and get some inspiration!
2. Marissa Meyer, Fairest
The Lunar Chronicles is one of my most favourite sci-fi stories, and I'm so intrigued by the fact that Marissa also writes fanfiction! I've gotten all of my friends to read her work and they're also so obsessed—she seems the sweetest and I LOVE HER WORK.
3. Susane Colasanti, City Love
The best. Chick-lit author. In the world. AAAAAAGH. She's a celebrity, my friends, and I can bawl and go on and on with her work forever. SHE SEEMS HILARIOUS IN A WITTY WAY.
4. Jennifer L. Armentrout, Lux
I wanna talk about ALIENS AND DEMONS AND FICTIONAL STUFF AND DAEMON. I'll want to sit there for an hour with this amazing woman and chat and go out for tea and talk about Daemon some more, hah.
5. Patrick Ness, The Rest of Us Just Live Here
I wanna read everything by this amazing guy and tell him how much A Monster Calls means to me. I feel like tearing up now—maybe I have to reread it before going to get my feelings straight!
6. Meg Cabot, Royal Wedding
Meg's been a role model author for me since I was a kid, when I read everything that she's ever written—at least, almost everything. I want to indulge in this Princess Diaries awesomeness, and let her know that she's the best. Hehe.
7. Lauren Oliver, Curiosity House
Here's another author whose mastered everything she's ever written. Vanishing Girls just shocked me and left me wanting more, and I fell in love with Delirium, and I know that I can fall in love again. We'll talk about ALEX!
8. Scott Westerfeld, Zeroes
Love everything of his, TOO! Zeroes will be a favourite of 2015 for me, I can tell, and I want to go on and talk about the world of Uglies, and how this world can become that someday. ;)
9. Megan Shepard, The Cage
I still have yet to read the final book in The Madman's Daughter trilogy, and I'm so excited for THE CAGE. I'LL BE STUCK IN A CAGE OF HAPPINESS AND SQUEALING, PEOPLE.
10. Jennifer E. Smith, Hello, Goodbye, and Everything in Between
Fantastic ROMANCE AND HEART-PUMPING SQUEALING MOMENTS. WHAT ELSE CAN I SAY? WE'LL SQUEAL ABOUT THE CITY! :O
Even if you're not going to BEA, it's okay!
