Top Ten Tuesday (4)

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there will be a new topic and a new list to make. Be sure to stop by the host blog to see all of the other blogs participating!

This week's topic:
Top Ten Authors I'd Love to Have at my Thanksgiving Feast

1. Terry Goodkind - He's the author of my favorite series (Sword of Truth) and I would love to hear more about his philosophies.

2. J.R. Ward - I love the Black Dagger Brotherhood books and would love to see what spoilers I could get out of her!

3. Mitch Albom - I think he would have a lot of reminders of what we could all be thankful for.

4. Stephenie Meyer - I'm sure this one comes as no surprise. I would love to meet the author that started it all.

5. J.K. Rowling - I would love the chance to meet her and to hear all of the details that didn't make it into Harry's books.

6. Jodi Picoult - I think it would be very enlightening and interesting to have conversations with her.

7. Suzanne Collins - I would love to hear how she created such a compelling trilogy.

I am cheating slightly for the last three - I realize these authors aren't alive, but I would still love to have dinner with them!

8. C.S. Lewis - His writings are wonderful and I would love the chance to talk with and learn from him.

9. Jane Austen - I would love to know more about the person who created Mr. Darcy.

10. William Shakespeare - I think he would be very interesting to talk to. Plus, maybe we could solve the mystery of authenticity in his plays!

What made your Top Ten list? Please leave a comment or link to your blog!


  1. Suzanne Collins is an excellent choice, I'd definitely love to talk to her about THG!

  2. Mitch Albom! Great pick, I forgot about him but I'd like him also :)

  3. I love your list!!! especially Jane Austen she is my FAVORITE (and I am so marrying mr. darcy so if she were to come for thanksgiving she would need to bring him with her)

  11. J.K. Rowling is definitely a choice I agree with, as she's on my list this week as well. And I should have put Suzanne Collins on there!
