Top Ten Tuesday: Authors I’d Like To Meet


Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in 2018. 

Hey everyone! When I first saw the theme of this week I almost didn’t participate. The thing is: meeting new people is terrifying for me, especially when it’s people I admire. And I kind of admire all authors out there. So, if I were to meet an author, I’d probably have a huge panic attack and, as you can probably guess, I’d rather not do that.

But I decided to look at the topic a little differently. Meeting an author doesn’t mean actually having them look at you and talk to you one on one, correct? If I were to be at a certain convention and these authors would be guests there, and I’d hear them speak at a panel, I’d have met them in some way, right? So, this week’s theme for me is basically “authors I’d love to hear speak at a panel”. And once I changed the theme to that in my head, it was very easy to come up with authors. Because there’s a LOT of authors I’d love to hear speak at a panel.

Jason Reynolds
Eric Smith
Elizabeth Acevedo

Angie Thomas
Becky Albertalli
Sandhya Menon 

Karuna Riazi
Nina LaCour
Emily XR Pan
Alice Oseman

I wanted to write a little bit about every author on this list, but I realized very quickly that it’d get way too repetitive,because I could say the exact same thing about every single one of these authors. They’re all incredible people that have some really amazing, interesting and important things to say, and I’d love to hear them talk.

Now if only we could get some sort of book convention where all of these people were at, that’d be great. Please, someone make it happen.

    I really want to meet Angie Thomas and Sandhya Menon too, as I really enjoyed both their books! I was lucky enough to meet Alice Oseman at YALC in the summer and she was SO lovely. I’m also going to an event with Becky Albertalli at the end of this month, so hopefully there’ll be time to meet her then! Great post Laura!

    I feel the exact same way – I’d be terrified to meet any favourite authors, but getting to a con and hearing them at a panel would be nice! I hope you’ll get to see at least some of these one day 😀
