Top Ten Tuesday 5/12/15

Top Ten Tuesday is a set of blog topics provided by The Broke and the Bookish. Today's topic is: Top Ten Authors I'd REALLY Like to Meet.

Wow. Ten, huh?

  1. Donna Leon - She writes the Guido Brunetti mysteries set in Venice. One caveat: we have to meet at her house in Venice. Seems like a plan.

  2. Sarah Vowell - She writes hilarious non-fiction, usually of the historical ilk. She's originally from Muskogee, Oklahoma. We could share stories in our funny accents.

  3. Alan Jacobs - We'd probably just sit around and read companionably.

  4. Sara Nelson - We could gush about all the books. All. The. Books.

  5. Rainbow Rowell - She writes YA and adult Contemporary Fiction. They are all fun and light, but not too fluffy. We could go shoe shopping together.

  6. Janet Evanovich - I'm thinking this crazy woman would be awesome to go to the mall with and people watch.

  7. Darynda Jones - I like the idea of spending some time with this paranormal writer in her home town of Albuquerque. She can show me her take on the town.

  8. Helen Fielding - I'm pretty sure she lives in England. Good enough.

  9. Mary Oliver - We could walk the dogs. Maybe she'd come up with some more dog poetry.

  10. Anne Rice - She would probably find me quotidian and boring. But she would, of course, be fascinating.

That's what I got. Who would you like to meet?
