Seeing authors is one of the privilege of being a YA bookworm. It’s so fun when they go on tour and you can gush in signing lines, clutching your treasured books, trying not to curl the pages before they sign it. It’s always so fun. But it’s never easy meeting all your favourites, I’m lucky to live in England where quite a few visit but not all authors tour here and it’s not always possible to meet them when they come. So here’s a lit of ten authors I’d love to meet.
1. Rick Riordan
Top of the list and has been for years, as a man’s who’s books made my childhood I’d love to meet him. It’s a big dream of mine and if I ever go to the States I’d definitely go see him. (Which I know is a ridiculous thing to say give how big the States is but still!)
2. Tomi Adeyomi
I was one of the unlucky few who didn’t manage to meet Tomi at YALC 😥 Children of Blood and Bone was such a great read!!
3. Cassandra Clare
I want to see if Cassandra Clare is as funny in person as she was on the page. Her characters are always really fun to meet, I can only hope she is as well!
4. Derek Landy
I’ve met and embarrassed myself in front of him loads of times, but I would never say no to meeting Derek again! I once asked him to say “Doors are for people with no imagination” in an Irish accent like Skulduggery’s and feel I need to meet him again and redeem myself…
5. JK Rowling
I know I have like no chance since she probably will never tour again but it would be very cool to see the author of a book series that meant so much to me when I was a kid.
Also here is a picture of YALC from August! Might have missed Tomi but I did see a lot of very cool authors!!
6. Sarah J Maas
I’ve only recently picked up her books but am super jealous of my friend who’s met her already. It would be very cool to meet the maker of Ardlan’s Assassin!
7. Stephanie Garber
Caravel was just, wow, and I’d love to meet the author. I really like her writing and am very intrigued by how she managed to create such a unqiue world.
8. Erin Hunter (s?)
I read the books Warrior Cats as a kid and devoured them. They were a staple and kept my interest in reading alive. I would like to meet the authors (I think they’re 4??) if for nothing else just to say thanks.
9. Angie Thomas
Not only is The Hate U Give an amazing read but makes such an important point. I’d love to meet the author.
10. Catherine Webb
Last but not least, Catherine Webb wrote one of my favourite books (which no one has ever heard of) and I’d love to meet her. Although I might need to get a new copy of her book for signing if I ever meet her since I read mine to the point that the pages fell out…
