Top Ten Tuesday (6): Rewind

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

This week is Top Ten Tuesday Rewind, where you pick any past topic you want. We chose:

Top Ten Authors We'd Love to Meet
  1. Jane Austen: Based on the wicked sense of humor that is displayed in her novels and letters, we imagine that she'd be just as witty in person. We'd have to find out who her favorite on-screen Darcy was and what she thought of Becoming Jane.
  2. William Shakespeare: Maybe we'd finally get to know his whole life story. Plus we'd like to hear his opinions on the movie adaptations of his plays.
  3. Edgar Allan Poe: What made the mind behind those macabre tales tick?
  4. J. K. Rowling: This conversation would probably be one-sided because we'd be speechless with awe. We might muster the courage to ask some questions about the Marauders' time at Hogwarts.
  5. George R. R. Martin: It always amazes us how he manages to keep track of all of those characters in the A Song of Ice and Fire series. Naturally, we would have to ask him how the next book is coming along and beg him not to make us wait another 6 years for it.
  6. Cassandra Clare: There would be lots of gushing about how obsessed we are with the world of the Shadowhunters in both The Infernal Devices and The Mortal Instruments.
  7. Suzanne Collins: Of course we'd tell her how much we love The Hunger Games, but we'd also need to discuss what happened to a certain character.
  8. Maria V. Snyder: Her Study series is another one of our favorites. We'd ask her to pretty please write some kind of prequel story for Valek.
  9. Laini Taylor: We love the world of Daughter of Smoke and Bone and would be interested to hear what inspired her to create it.
  10. Stephenie Meyer: We just want to know if there's ever going to be a sequel to The Host.

What topic did you choose for your Top Ten this week? Leave your link, and we'll check it out! Thanks for stopping by!


  1. This is a great topic! My topic was fictional crushes: http://emilyheartsbooks.blogspot.com/2012/06/top-ten-tuesday-june-5-2012.html

  2. Wonderful list! I would love to meet most of those authors! Although, I don't know my list would be quite so good. I would probably just say ALL OF THE AUTHORS ever. haha. =) Thanks for stopping by my TTT!

  3. I think I would probably like to meet any of the authors I love but it would be incredible to time travel and meet Austen and Shakespeare! But what if they disappointed you and were snobs or drunks or something!? That would kill me. J.K Rowling would be better than meeting the Queen fo sho.

    P.S- Which HG character were you referring to? x

    1. It's a character from District 4 whose name starts with "F." ;)

  4. Awesome list! I'd love to meet Poe, Rowling, Collins, and Clare. I really need to read Daughter of Smoke and Bone.

    New follower!

  5. I would love to meet George R.R. Martin and J.K. Rowling as well.

  6. Great list, a bunch I'd like to meet as well! And, by the way, yes there is... http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/6138606-the-soul Not a lot on it yet, but there is supposed to be two more. Hopefully that MIGHT will turn into a WILL. Especially with the movie coming! Thanks for visiting :)

  7. YES, to all of the above! I have questions for each and every one of them. I'd love to ask Stephenie Meyer what the heck she was thinking when she made Edward a stalker! :P

    Okay, so I wouldn't badger her. I'd just ask about The Host too, because I really did like that book.

  8. Great picks, I'd love to meet most of them :)

  9. I agree about Stephenie Meyer. We need to have a chat about The Host because from what I have heard she only wants to do a trilogy movie wise and not in books. and she said she is having a hard time writing the rest of them because she doesn't want to kill off characters, but I can think of a few in twilight she did and even a certain one in The Host. lol sorry for my rant.
    Great picks and thank you for stopping by my blog.

  10. What a fantastic list! Are all of the authors at one dinner? If so, I'd have to bring my brother to meet Edgar Allen Poe, his favorite author.
    Thanks for stopping by to check out my childhood faves.

  11. Great List! My mom just went to a book signing with George R.R. Martin in Missoula, Montana and I was beyond jealous!She said that he gave people stern looks when they asked when to expect the next book and was amused when people asked him to sign copies of their books with promises of not killing their fave characters.

    He is definitely on my list of authors I want to meet

  12. That would be hilarious to sit by Jane Austen while she watched Becoming Jane. :P

  13. HAHA! I love your reason for wanting to meet Stephenie Meyer. I would definitely want to meet all of these authors because they're all so iconic. (:
