Top 5 Wednesday | Authors I Want To Meet, Period.

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme created by Lainey from gingerreadslainey and hosted by Sam from Thoughts On Tomes (both on YouTube). This week’s topic is “authors you’d want to meet at Book Expo America & Bookcon.” BUT! Since I’m not going (*heart-wrenching sobs*), I figured I’d transform the topic into “authors I want to meet, period.” I think that’s a little fairer and doesn’t twist the knife in my heart any further! So without any further ado… 

Sarah J. Maas

Asdfghjkl!!! The queen herself! I melt into a puddle just thinking about meeting her! I’d love to get the chance to tell Sarah how much I’ve loved her books and how fun they are! I love to think we’d instantly become fast friends and go out to coffee to talk about books! (Hey! A girl can dream, can’t she?)

Laini Taylor

Another queen (#slay)! I’d love to meet the woman who dreamed up such an elaborate interesting world as that of Daughter of Smoke and Bone! Plus I love the pink hair! Laini just seems like an all around fascinating person!

Veronica Roth

As you all probably know by now, Divergent is my all time favorite book. It means a lot to me because of it’s message and it’s even more special because Veronica and I attended the same college and she wrote it while she was there (I believe). I’d love the chance to tell Veronica just how much Divergent means to me, how it both saved my life and changed it forever.

Sabaa Tahir

I’ve now slimly missed two chances to meet Sabaa Tahir! *shakes fist and shouts curses to the wind*

So I’m making it a goal to meet her some day!

Maria Dahvana Headley

Maria seems like quite the colorful character! She just seems like such a fascinating person and that’s reflected in her storytelling! I’d love to get the chance to get to know her in person, even if just for a few minutes.

  1. Any of these authors would be AMAZING to meet in person. I agree, Laini Taylor does seem like an interesting person, super artsy for sure. I’m almost afraid to Maria Dahvana Headley. She looks fierce.
