Top Ten Tuesday: Authors I’d Love to Meet

Though it was tough to narrow down, it was a fun list to compile. Thanks to That Artsy Reader Girl for another great prompt.

Indiana’s Top Five

Joan DidionJoan Didion – Although I’d be incredibly nervous, I would love the chance to meet this incredible thinker, worrier, and writer.

Ali Smith

Ali Smith – This one should go without saying.



J.R.R. Tolkien – His books were woven through my childhood and have stuck with my through adulthood. I would love to have met the creator of Middle Earth.

J. K. Rowling – I’ve read her books perhaps more time than any other author’s and love her writing style (plus she’s got a killer sense of humor, as shown on her Twitter feed)

Dave Eggers – Judging by the humor in his books, I’d get along with him.


Pete’s Top Five

George Saunders

George Saunders – He seems like such a kindhearted and fascinating person. I would love to see how his sense of humor shows through conversation.



Brandon Sanderson – I have always loved that Brandon Sanderson seems like a huge nerd just like everyone else. I’d love to chat with him about games, books, and possibly some very specific details of the Cosmere.

Ali Smith – I have to agree with Indi here—she seems like a wonderful and brilliant person.

Ursule K Le Guin.jpg

Ursula K. Le Guin – I was deeply saddened by her death earlier this year. I’ve only just discovered her books, and I would love to talk with her for a while.

Philip Reeve

Philip Reeve – I’ve actually had some email conversations with Philip Reeve, so I already know that he’s friendly and charming. But I’d still like to pepper him with questions about Mortal Engines if I had the chance.
