Top Ten Tuesday {27}

Tuesday, November 22, 2011






Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. The feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists over at The Broke and the Bookish. They'd love to share their lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week they will post a new top ten list that one of our bloggers at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All they ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.
Top Ten Authors I'd Love to Have at My Thanksgiving Feast:

1. Michelle Hodkin - Why, you ask? Clearly you haven't met her! Michelle is one of the nicest, sweetest and most genuine people out there, and it just so happens that she is an incredibly talented author. Picking her brain for an hour and chatting about animals wasn't nearly enough time...what better place than a Thanksgiving feast?!

2. J.K. Rowling - A girl can dream, right? If I had an hour to ask her questions or sit and eat dinner with her, one of two things could happen. 1) I drive her insane with idiotic questions for hours, or 2) I sit bug-eyed and silent...internally fangirling.

3. Rick Riordan - I don't know about you, but I want to know how in the heck he makes Greek mythology look so dang good and be so dang legible! His characters are fun, so obviously, he has to be fun, too.

4. Kirsty Eagar - Well, obviously I'd be fangirling over her books, then I'd fangirl over her accent, and then I'd tell her to get her publishers to get her books in the US, stat. Either way, I think she could teach me how to surf, so why not spend a fun Thanksgiving learning, eh?

5. Kendare Blake - She has one of the most genius and inventive minds, and I can't imagine how much fun it would be to chat horror and paranormal with her. Truly. I mean that with utter sincerity!

6. Brian Jacques - I know he recently passed, but I would still love to spend Thanksgiving with him! He always wrote about these epic feasts in his books, and my mouth would be watering for days...not that I knew what any of the food was, or anything.

7. Sara Shepard - I might not love the shows based on her books (though The Lying Game is leagues better), but I am so enthralled by her books. They're easy, fast and they are so entertained. I want more!

8. James Dashner - I think his dystopian series is one of the most underrated and underreviewed series ever. I adore it. I really need to review it and share my love for his series because it is THAT good. Plus, I'd pick his brain on the prequel. Jussayin'.

9. Richelle Mead - I've sworn up and down, time and again that I loathe vampires. I'll never like them. BUT I was convinced to read the Vampire Academy series, and I was sold. I want to know how she did that.

10. Marissa Meyer - She's a debut author, but holy hell does she have one original plot with Cinder! I'm obsessed. I want her at my Thanksgiving so I can grill her and find out more!

  3. Awesome list.

    I've always wanted to have the funny and witty Dolly Parton over for dinner. Betty White would be fun too. So they both are technically authors but I know they've both written memoirs.

  4. Can't wait to read the Marissa Meyer book after that intro.

  7. Richelle Mead! How did I forget her?? And James Dashner is a great pick - love The Maze Runner

    Wonderful author choices, Melissa! :)

  8. Rick Riordan would definitely be on my list. I've seen his interviews online. He genuinely sounds warm and funny.

  9. Richelle...that'd be so cool. I'd love to sit down with Rowling. I wonder if she'd be down to earth or not though.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I'm with you on J.K. Rowling - I might enjoy having her over but I'm sure I'd make her incredibly uncomfortable with my fawning.

    Having Kirsty Eager over to listen to her awesome accent would be really fun too, great choice there!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Fantastic list! I definitely agree with Michelle Hodkin!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Um. If all those people are coming to your Thanksgiving, can I invite myself along? Michelle Hodkin is obviously one of the cutest people in the world, love her. And I adored Cinder too, thought it was brilliant:)

    ReplyDelete
  13. Brian Jacques stopped by a local bookstore some years past, so I agree, he'd be a fabulous guest. Imagine him with Rick Riordan!

  15. Cinder WAS amazing, and what a concept. I'm a sci-fi junkie, so it was insta-love for Asheley and that book! Excellent choice.

    Agree with Rick Riordan - I put him on my list too.

    Really, this would be a lovely table. Can I just skip my Thanksgiving and come to yours???

    ReplyDelete
  16. I agree with you wholeheartedly about James Dashner! Did you hear about the prequel (The Kill Order) coming out next August?

    ReplyDelete
  17. I just watched the Simpsons today so Neil Gaiman :D

    Great list

    ReplyDelete
  18. Rowling and Riordan both made this week's list - I think they both are really great writers and I'd love to talk to them about the stories and worlds they've created :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. I totally agree about Michelle Hodkin. I had the opportunity to hang out with her recently and she is a blast. I have pics to prove it. She would liven up any event, that's for sure!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I think I'm going to participate in this. I've seen it on another blog and it looks like a lot of fun to come up with them. I know...I'm a little late. But better late then never right?

    I stumbled upon your blog from another blog I follow and so far I like what I see! I'm a new follower so you will probably see me stalking your blog pretty frequently from this point forward!

  21. That would be a hard list to come up with. You did a great job. Several of those authors would be on my list as well.

  22. I was having so much trouble coming up with a tenth author that fit with the rest of my list, but your decision to include Brian Jacques was inspired, and I realized that he was perfect. I can't believe I didn't think of him sooner.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I loved Cinder, too! It was such a creative flip to the normal Cinderella. I mean, cyborg meets human meets moon...awesome!

    If JK Rowling came to my Thanksgiving, I would have no idea what to say. Probably..."uhhhhhh..." I'd be so eloquent.

    If I could pick, I'd invite Maggie Stiefvater, Stephanie Perkins and Nicole Peeler. I could list more, but I think I could carry a convo with them, at the least.
