Hey guys, happy Tuesday from London! (I still haven’t posted about why I’m here, but I’m basically doing work experience with a small publishing company!)
As always, Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted over at The Broke and The Bookish, and this week’s theme is:
March 28: Top Ten Authors I’m Dying To Meet / Ten Authors I Can’t Believe I’ve Met (some other “meeting authors” type spin you want to do)
Since I haven’t met that many authors yet (they don’t always come that far north! *weeps*) I thought I’d go for the top ten women writers I’d love to meet.
From top to bottom:
V. E. Schwab – Author of the Shades of Magic Series, This Savage Song and Vicious. (OK, confession time – I have already met her. I met V for the first time at YALC last year and SHE IS WONDERFUL. She was everything I’d hoped for and so much more. I want to meet her again ASAP.)
Leigh Bardugo – Author of the Grisha trilogy and Six of Crows duology.
Banana Yoshimoto – Author of Kitchen, Goodbye Tsugumi, Daisy’s Life and The Lake.
Roshani Chokshi – Author of The Star Touched Queen and A Crown of Wishes.
N. K. Jemisin – Author of the Inheritance trilogy, the Broken Earth series, and the Dreamblood series.
Laini Taylor – Author of the Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy and Strange the Dreamer.
Angie Thomas – Author of The Hate U Give.
Alwyn Hamilton – Author of Rebel of the Sands and Traitor to the Throne. (I might actually be meeting her today at the Islington Waterstones event!)
Alice Walker – Author of The Color Purple.
Han Kang – Author of The Vegetarian and Human Acts.
Which authors would you love to meet? Have you met any of these wonderful women already? Let me know!
