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.

My Aunt Nicky on the left, Vivica A. Fox, and me! Yes, of course, I had to take the picture with my Polaroid camera! Old Skool style.

Hope you all in enjoyed this list. Love to hear what everyone thoughts are. Did you meet any of these authors yet? Who do you want to meet?

Top Ten Tuesday Books By My Favorite Authors That I Still Haven’t Read

TTT-NEW

Hosted By That Artsy Reader Girl

 

Happy Tuesday from me to you. For this week we are going to discuss books that I have not read yet from my favorite authors. This is going to be a fun topic!

I do like to keep up with the authors that I love when they come out with new books, however, I always end up with other books that have been on my list for a while. So this list might be small. But here we go!

First on the list is Marissa Meyer. I truly love her work. Her stories are so amazing and love each and every one of them so far. Heartless would be my favorite yet. Marissa has a lot of wonderful books out that I have not got around to yet. So this list actually might just be her books that I want to read and no other author since I’m caught up with all my other favorites. So here are Marissa’s books that I have yet to read.

Renegades By Marissa Meyer

I am so sad that this book sold out at my Barnes And Noble. This was on top of my list to purchase today and that didn’t happen. This is the number one book I want to purchase and just will have to wait or find it at another store or even order it online. But for real I really want my hands on this book and read asap once I do.

Gosh! I need to read these as soon as possible. I mean it too! So many good books coming out from left and right and my TBR list are just getting bigger and bigger rather than small. I need to dedicate one whole month of just catching up with Marissa’s books.

Have you read any of these lovely books I would like to hear your thoughts! TTFN.
