My Favorite Authors - With Pictures!

For people who truly LOVE to read there are no worse questions than "What's your favorite book?" Or "Who's your favorite author?" Because you probably don't have just one answer. At least, I don't. There are so many authors I love and admire and okay, kind of want to be, but I do have five all-time favorites. It is one of my life goals to meet all five of them. So far I've met three, which isn't bad! In random order (because how could I rank them???) My favorite authors are:

Cassandra Clare - Author of The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices series (for me to consider someone a favorite author I have to love more than just one or two of their books.) I've been lucky enough to meet Ms. Clare twice at book signings.

Sorry the quality is a little bad. This was from the first time I met her in NYC on Aug. 4th, 2010

The 2nd time I met her on April 22nd, 2011
Scott Westerfeld - Author of the Midnighters series, the Uglies series, the Leviathan trilogy, Peeps and The Last Days, So Yesterday (those are the ones I've read and loved). I've also met him twice!

Incredibly bad picture of me with Scott Westerfeld, Oct. 19th, 2009

I met him again at Cassandra Clare's signing on Aug. 4th, 2010.
Ally Carter - Is the author of the Gallagher Girls series and the Heist Society series,  both of which I love SO much. I haven't met her yet. But I will. I WILL. *Insert maniacal laughter*

John Green - If I HAD to pick one favorite author, I'd probably say John Green. He and his work are just so brilliant. And the fact that he's one half of Vlogbrothers/founder of Nerdfighteria doesn't hurt :) I haven't met him either . . . YET. I must meet John Green one day. And hopefully Hank Green too.... Yes, I have weird dreams. He is the author of Looking for Alaska, An Abundance of Katherines, Paper Towns, and the upcoming The Fault in Our Stars (all pre-ordered copies of which WILL BE SIGNED).

Sarah Dessen - Is the author of ten books. I'm not crazy enough to link to them all individually, but I have read them all. They're all amazing. Read them :D I was lucky enough to meet Sarah Dessen this summer. I wrote a blog about it HERE.

Do you have favorite authors? Have you met them? Do you want to?

  1. If I had to pick I'd say Shannon Hale, Neal Shusterman and JKR were my favourite authors, but I don't think I'd want to meet any of them because I'd either get really intimidated and hide in a corner or go all fangirly and be like, "Omg HIIIIII!!!!" *waves* XD
