Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Authors I’m Dying To Meet / Ten Authors I Can’t Believe I’ve Met

Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is 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). I am going to do both of these, so you’re getting a two-for-one post today. 😉

  1. WOW! You have met a lot of authors. I have only been to one book signing, which was a few years ago. I need to start finding time to go to more. So much fun! Great list.

  2. Damn you’ve met quite a few authors. I’m impressed haha. Obviously Elle and Sarina are on my to meet list but I’d love to meet Ginger Scott as well. 😀

  3. You met Tarryn Fisher?!?!? I’M SO JEALOUS. I’m dying to meet her. And Colleen Hoover. Those are my top two that I really hope to meet some day. I’ve only met Nicholas Sparks. I need to go to more author events!

    • Kind of. She was hanging with Claire Contreras. I got a picture with the two of them, but she wasn’t signing anything. You could tell she hadn’t expected that everyone would recognize her.

    • I know, right? I would be too intimidated to probably say much. I totally freaked when I met Claire Contreras. She probably thought I was irritating.

    • I can’t even tell you how cool she was! Hey, you’re in the New York area, right? Or am I remembering wrong? I think Bowen and Scott are signing there in May.

  4. OMG!!! I was at that signing too!!!! I dragged my hubby with me. If you saw a short guy with a tall girl, and the guy was occasionally knitting in line, that was me!!

    And how did you miss the Ritchie twins?? They were there!! I met them!!

    What’s really funny is that I’ve met Colleen Hoover twice. I think she is amazingly talented, but she wasn’t my favourite meet in the end. Two introverts does not a good conversation make, and I was too nervous the first time.

    Oh, and you’re going to hate me because I get to meet both Ginger Scott and Sarina Bowen this year!! I’m jealous of myself…

    • That’s crazy! Are you from the Seattle area? I was there with my sister. We weren’t very identifiable. Lol.
      I had no idea who the Ritchie twins were at the time. 🙁 I really am regretting that. I hope they come again next year because I will be camping out at that booth!
      And yes, I hate you for all of that!!! LOL

      • I’m not from the Seattle area! I’m from Edmonton, Canada… My hubby and I roadtripped for that signing. We actually love Seattle though, so it was hardly a hardship. And there are definitely no signings in my neck of the woods, so I always have to travel.

        Bummer about the twins. I had a few of their books, so started reading them just before the signing, and only got through the first three in the Addicted series at the time. Was so glad I did though because they were amazing books. I need to get back to that related series.
