Top Ten Tuesday: Book People

hosted by the Broke and the Bookish.

This topic was really hard to just name 10 people that I would like to meet because I just really want to meet everyone.  I love talking about books and making friends because of books.  It's just such a cool thing to connect with someone over a books.  Aside from their author status or their youtube fame or their goodreads/blog status, they are in fact normal people.  I love that.  I love reminding myself that nothing is too extraordinary, anything can happen.  It's great!

1. J.K. Rowling - It would be an honor to meet the one woman that gave me my childhood and some of my best friends.  I would love to sit and chat with her about life, growing up and pop culture and really anything. I would probably have trouble talking, but I would definitely make it work.  It would be absolutely a dream come true.

2. Stephen Chbosky - Perks of Being a Wallflower is just so beautifully written and real, I want to understand his process of writing.  It would be a cool opportunity to talk to him about life and the creative process and such.

3. Meg Cabot - It would be cool to be able to talk to one of the authors that played a key role in my decision to become a writer.  She is for sure on that list.
4. Kate DiCamillo - She writes such wonderful children's books, I would love to chat with her about how she gets her ideas and what she includes in her writing.  I think they are so creative and unique, they are truly inspiring.

5. Stan Lee - He is Stan Lee. I want to give him a great big hug and thank him.  That is all.

6. Suzanne Collins - I like that she has experience writing in different facets of the media, books and TV. I think it would be really cool to sit down with her and discuss the differences with her.  It would help me figure out more of what I want to do in the future.  It would also be great.

7. Maureen Johnson - She seems like the coolest person ever.  I would love to pick her brain and go on an adventure with her.  I want to know how she does life.  New York and the UK please let me know your secrets!

8. John Green - Really just probably one of the most amazing authors. He and his brother have some many intellectual things to say.  I feel like I learn something from them every time I watch one of their videos.  (I freaking LOVE learning, so this is the best combination possible.)

9. Priscilla at The Readables - Priscilla has so many intelligent things to say about the books she reads and I enjoy that she has themed months for her books.  I think that a really great idea, but I don't read fast enough to do that.  She is also a book person that I would love to meet.

10. Sanne at Books and Quills - I have watched many of her youtube videos and I always enjoy what she has to say about books and the pretty ones she shares with her viewers.  She looks like someone who would be a great person to talk to about books.

11. Every other book person there ever was.  I just want to be friends with all the book people.  Please and thank you.

  1. Maureen Johnson is on my list too! I love what she has to say about censorship and YA, she's hilarious and I am sure she is totally awesome in "real life." Good call on Stan Lee! Here are my picks http://wp.me/pzUn5-1cD
