Top Ten Tuesday: I'd Love To Make Your Acquaintance

As always, this feature is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
I've been fortunate enough to be able to meet, greet and even spend time with some of my favorite bloggers and authors in the past year. I consider it truly a privilege, and often find myself starstruck or overwhelmed with giddiness. That being said, there are definitely a few more people I'd want to meet, and here's my list of authors and book bloggers that I'd want to hang out with in person.

1. J.K. Rowling
2. Cayla Kluver
3. Rick Riordan
4. Sarah MacLean
5. Nicholas Sparks
6. Garth Nix
7. Tamora Pierce
8. Marissa Meyer
9. Sarah J. Maas
10. Jessi Kirby

  1. Hehe. You made my list too, of course! :) I love your idea of doing 10 authors and 10 bloggers. I had a hard time narrowing my list down. I should have just gone for everyone! I've met Marissa Meyer, Sarah J. Maas, and Jessi Kirby. They are all SO sweet, and super nice! You listed so many awesome bloggers, too! I feel so lucky to be a part of such a fun community of people. :)

  2. Dude! I want to meet like, ALL of these people too! Though, I'm kind of scared of JK Rowling. I heard she wasn't the nicest person ever but I don't remember why. O_O

  3. I'd love to meet all these people especially JK Rowling. I don't know what I would say.

  4. We need to make this meeting thing happen! I'm trying to plot a trip to the US...
    Also: I want to meet all the authors on your list! I think I'd scare them with my fangirling ;)

  5. So many people from your list that are on my list, or that I've already met. Jamie = AWESOME. And I agree so much on Lisa, Asheley, and G. And perhaps you and I should run into one another someday, too :)

  6. Ah I want to meet your face, too! You have a fab list of authors & bloggers to meet-up with. When can we make this happen?! haha

  7. Aww ... thank you for including me in your list, Alexa! I'd love to meet you! :)

    As for authors -- I think John Green would be on the top of my list. I LOVE HIM! I was lucky enough to meet Veronica Roth, Beth Revis, and Kelley Armstrong, which was super cool and now I want to meet MORE authors!

    I sure wish I could afford to attend some bookish events to meet some bloggers in real life!

    Thanks for sharing!

  8. I think we need some large blogger meet-up. I would SO BE UP FOR THAT. Because I would have a ROYAL FIT to meet these people too. These reading/blogging friends are so much the best, aren't they??

    I was sitting here fangirling over Rick Riordan in your post (!!!!) and then all of these awesome bloggers that I love so much and WOW. You are so awesome Alexa. So, WHO IS GONNA MAKE THIS MEET-UP HAPPEN? Cause I really want to meet you and everyone else SO MUCH!!!

  9. Great authors and great bloggers! I haven't had the pleasure of meeting any bloggers yet since there aren't many near where I live. Here’s my TTT:

  10. You know what's awesome??? WE GET TO MEET IN A FEW DAYS! You have no idea how excited I am! We are going to have so much fun though I can't promise how fun I'll be at 5am. JUST SAYING. But once that coffee gets a flowin' I'll be doing just FINE!

  11. No joke, if you go meet all these bloggers, take me with you! It would be super fun! Same goes for the authors; many of them I'd LOVE! to meet!!!

  12. To meet JK Rowling would be . . . oh my gosh just amazing! I would freak out, I'm sure.

    Rick Riordan is on my list, too.

  13. Look at Elena! She is such a cutie! :) I would love to meet a lot of those authors too, especially J.K. Rowling (obviously!) and Sarah J. Maas. I'd probably be completely starstruck though. :D

  14. hehe I like how stylin' I am in this post! I am SO EXCITED to meet you, ahhh. I would seriously love to meet J.K. Rowling (can't believe it's happening!), Marissa Meyer, and Sarah J. Maas too. Total fangirl.

  15. Dude, if we don't hang out soon, I'm going to flip out. Flip the freak out. Our Hunger Games erotica depends on it!



  16. I feel like if I met Rick Riordan, I'd be on this "How cool is Percy? NO REALLY. How cool is he? No REALLY RICK..." etc.

    Yes! Let's be friends in real life one day okay? Great!

  17. So, so, so many awesome bloggers and authors I would love to meet as well! I say we all just pack our bags and head to a beach. It will be like a giant book blogging beach party!


Thanks for leaving a comment! I love seeing what you have to say, and will try to reply (here or on Twitter) as soon as I can :)
