Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Authors I Would Like To Meet
Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week bloggers post their top ten on a previously suggested topic. This week's topic is top ten authors I would like to meet. And let's face it, I never will because I live in Belgium.
1. V. E. Schwab
I'm currently reading A Conjuring of Light and I'm absolutely in love with this trilogy! So sad it will be over after this book. I'm not ready for it to end yet...
2. Marissa Meyer
The Lunar Chronicles is one of my favourite YA series. I absolutely love Captain Thorne, he's the best character ever!
3. Donna Tart
Loved the Goldfinch and I'm waiting for the perfect moment to read The Secret History, as I really want to savour it.
4. Margaret Atwood
The Handmaid's Tale and The Blind Assassin are the two amazing books I read by Atwood. I still trying to figure out which novel to read next, because the all sound amazing!
5. Isabel Allende
I've read several of her books and I will read more in the future. Allende never disappoints.
6. Sally Thorne
I truly enjoyed The Hating Game by Sally Thorne, it has become one of my favourite comfort reads, and I've read it twice already! Can't wait to read her new book this year!
7. Sarah Andersen
Her comics are incredibly funny and sooo relatable! She makes me feel normal and want to get my hands on the follow up volume of Adulthood is a Myth soon!
8. Yaa Gyasi
I finished reading Homegoing this month and I was so impressed with her debut novel! I believe it would definitely be interesting to meet her!
9. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
To my great shame, I still haven't read anything by Adichie yet. But I've seen a couple of her interviews and I believe her to a fantastic author who will make me think and reflect. This is absolutely going to be the year I read an Adichie novel!
10. Sophie Kinsella
The one author I actually met at a signing! Yeah, me! I got really flustered and my face was probably bright red. She signed a copy of Twenties Girl for me, sadly, they only had a copy in Dutch at the fair, and Twenties Girl ended up being one of my least favourite Sophie Kinsella novels. I would love to meet her again, so she can sign my favourite books. Sophie Kinsella's novels are special to me because those were the very first I read in English.
