Top Ten Tuesday: Top 10 Authors I’d Die To Meet – Comic-Con edition

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature created by The Broke and the Bookish featuring a new top ten list each week. Everyone can participate- head on over to their blog and sign up.

This week’s topic is Top 10 Authors I’d Die To Meet. I’m making this list the Comic-Con edition since I will be there next week and may have the chance to meet some of these authors through panels and signings. I would be thrilled to meet:

2. Marie Lu – Her debut book, the dystopian Legend, has been getting some good buzz. Hope to see her at the No Damsels in Distress Here panel.

3. Stephanie Perkins – I loved Anna & the French Kiss, and Lola & the Boy Next Door is one of my most anticipated books. Looking forward to seeing her at the What’s Hot in YA Fiction panel.

4. Anne Rice – I would be thrilled to meet the legendary Anne Rice, author of The Vampire Chronicles, my first vampire series. She will be at SDCC signing her comic Servant of the Bones #1.

5. Rachel Caine – Her Morganville vampire series is one of my favorites, and I was sad to miss her at last years Comic-Con. She will be at the Immortality panel. I would love to know her plans for the Morganville series and what she’s planning next.

6. Kiersten White – The author of Paranormalcy and the forthcoming Supernaturally. Paranormalcy is such a fun book and I’ve heard good buzz on the sequel. I would love to see her at the Diversity in Young Adult Works and What’s Hot in YA panels.

7. Malinda Lo – Would love to meet the author of Huntress and Ash and see what she’s working on next. Looking forward to her Diversity in Young Adult Works panel.

8. Laini Taylor – I enjoyed her book Lips Touch: Three Times and am eagerly anticipating Daughter of Smoke and Bone. She will be attending the What’s Hot in YA Fiction and High School Bites panels.

9. Scott Westerfeld – He has had such an interesting career and I’d love to hear what he’s up to. He will be on several panels, including his own called Building the World of Leviathan: an Illustrated Steampunk Series.

10. Mira Grant – I’d like to meet her and find out more about the Newsflesh trilogy. She is on an interesting panel: Writing the Apocalypse: Genre Authors Explore the End Times (And the Fun That Comes After!)


11. Veronica Roth – Her dystopian debut Divergent is one of my favorites of the year. She will be at Comic-Con at the Summit booth to promote her book and the upcoming movie adaptation.

There are many more authors I’d like to meet at Comic-Con but that’s a good start. It’s such a huge event that I’m not sure I’ll be able to actually meet any on this list, but it will be fun to see them in panels anyway.

What authors are you dying to meet?
