Top Ten Tuesday: Authors I’d Love To Meet

TTT-NEW

Hosted By That Artsy Reader

Happy Tuesday Bookworms! Another day closer to Halloween and I just couldn’t be more excited for this month. So much to do in so little time. For this week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is Author’s I would like to meet. I’m very excited to discuss this topic and recently put a list together. If only authors came to Vegas more often, You would think they would but it’s either I’m missing out or they are going to some secret spot that I don’t know about. Who knows, but one thing is for sure is that they do seem to attend a lot of book signings in California so lucky me that state is my neighbor. Here are the authors I would love to meet and discuss stories they created and have some tea with that discussion (FACT: I get Starstruck)

MARISSA MEYER

I’m sure you all know Marissa Meyer, you know the one who wrote the Lunar Chronicles, Heartless, and her newest addition Renegades! She is on top of my list and luckily for me, she will be in Los Angles next month doing a book signing just two days before my birthday and I told my boyfriend it’s a must that I attend next month! I really can not miss out on this opportunity. Marissa Meyer here I come!

HOLLY BLACK

Oh yes, you made it on the list just because I read one book, The Cruel Prince and I fell in love right away, therefore Holly is on the list, do I really need to say more!? I’m sure you all would agree with me.

AMANDA FOODY

Her writing is unique to me and I love every second reading her books. I would love to have Mrs.Foody here sign my books and take a Polaroid Picture with me! Sounds creepy? No worries I’m obsessed with my polaroid camera.

LEIGH BARDUGO

I need to meet Leigh Bardugo! I have questions that need answers. Wonderful author, I adore her writing. I feel like we would have a good conversation discussing Six Of Crows and Crooked Kingdom.

TOMI ADEYEMI

Oh yes! I need my Children Of Blood And bone sign and please let’s discuss how wonderful she truly is with her stories. Everything about this author would be a blessing to meet her and get my books sign.

GREGORY MAGUIRE

The one that started the Wicked series. I would need a big fat cup of tea with this meeting. I feel Gregory as a creative imagination with his stories, I love each book he has written therefore I have tons of questions and tons of books that need to be signed from him.

BONUS FEATURE

Yes I know she is an actress, Yes I know she is awesome, and yes I totally froze when I met her. Who am I talking about! I’m talking about Vivica A. Fox. Mrs.Fox was at our local Barnes And Noble this year doing her book signing for her book called Every Day I’m Husting.

I was second in line to have my book signed. My mind was racing on what to say. I didn’t really have much to say, the only thing that was going thru my damn mind was KILL BILL IS AWESOME! That’s the last thing I wanted to say. I mean I knew that I wanted to really say but it was corny as hell, you know “Oh your book is so inspirational, your book made me smile and laugh..blah blah” Nope! I knew she heard it all by others and I didn’t want to add to it. I was stuck and I was out of time. Luckily for me, Mrs. Fox is truly amazing women who take her fans very seriously.

She started the convo and what did she ask me first? Well, basically what everyone talks to me about when they first meet me…I have a huge Rose and Spider tattoo on my neck and yes that caught her attention. Meeting her was truly amazing. Her book was very inspirational and reminds you that it’s okay to work on yourself to get where you want to be and be happy with yourself first before anything else. Highly recommend her book for women who are struggling maybe on finding yourself.

Well I’m ruined for the rest of the day. Just finished this amazing gem and I’m completely hungover from it. I really don’t know what to do with myself and I need more of this story.

This was my first Holly Black story I read from her and it is truly a wonderful, dark, magical story. UGHHH I seriously can not wait for the second book The Wicked King! I could not put this book down. I kept going and the ending was a shock for me.

Are main character Jude who is mortal living in the Fey world among with her twin sister Taryn deal with a lot of bullying from others that are not mortal. Jude wants to be nothing but a respected knight in the monarch court. Her dark journey finding the truth about the ones she loves and the ones that are among her are truly fascinating and makes you want more.

Holly Black did a wonderful job writing this story out where you can literally visualize everything in your head like a movie. I’m always focused when I’m reading but there are a lot of characters in this book where you do need to focus because I did have to flip back pages to be like “Wait! Who?”

Mystical creatures, betrayal, a dark world where mortals are looked down at. A royal family fighting for the crown and one big secret…Yes this book brought all of this. Epic journey of finding the truth and the main character Jude finding out who she truly is when she was that person from the beginning.

Also I would like to say that Jude’s birthday is the same day as mine 🙂

Are you in for this epic read because I was stuck in the book the moment I started the first page and wanted to know more of Jude and her life with others that bully her and how she copes in this world with faeries.

This book was on my TBR list for a long time and I wish I read this a lot sooner then I did. I’m thrilled I finally got the opportunity to read this and is now one of my top favorite reads of 2018.

Ready to leave the mortal world and enter the epic world of Fey?
