Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by bloggers at The Broke and the BookishThis week I've  picked the top ten authors I would love to meet one day.

1. Rachael Craw

Rachael is so lovely on Twitter and really connects with her readers, plus Spark (as I've said before) is AMAZING. Hopefully she'll come to Australia one day!

2. Jessica L. Brooks

Jessica is one of THE nicest authors I know, and was the first one I really 'met' through goodreads. I've had the privilege of beta-reading some of her novels, and my name is even in the acknowledgements section! She's all the way from the US, but if I ever go over there I'd love to meet her.

3. Lara Morgan


Lara Morgan is the first Australian YA author I read books from, and her Rosie Black Chronicles still remains as my all-time favourite sci-fi series. I hope she writes more books like them one day!

4. Rebecca James


Rebecca is the queen of Aussie YA psychological thriller in my opinion, and I'd love the chance to see her and get my books signed!

5. Ginger Scott

Ginger Scott's NA contemporary novels have always wowed me with their very real characters and fantastic storylines. I'd love to meet her!

6. Markus Zusak

Simply because The Book Thief is heartbreaking, and still one of my absolute top favourite YA historical fiction pieces.

7. Marie Rutkoski

I have all the praise for The Winner's Curse series so far and can't wait to see where it goes from here - I'd love the opportunity to meet Marie Rutkoski since I'm a big fan!

8. Philippa Gregory


Amazing author and historian. Plus she wrote The White Queen which then became one of my favourite period dramas.

9. Megan Abbott


I really admire Abbott's work - her captivating writing style, and even more addictive plots. You can't deny her talent as a writer. 

10. Marisha Pessl

Marisha Pessl is quite new to my 'authors who have written mind-blowing books' list, but after reading Night Film now I'd really love to meet her and talk about the book!

What do you think of my choices? Who would you love to meet?


  1. I totally agree about Rachael, she's sooooo lovely! I'd love to meet Sarah J. Maas (NOVEMBER YES), Leigh Bardugo, Jennifer L Armentrout, JK Rowling :D

    1. I've heard a lot of the hype of Sarah J. Maas's visit - it does look exciting! JK Rowling would also be a definite must see :)

  2. Is it bad that I've only read from Marie Rutkoski from this list? But I would LOVE to meet her. The Winner's Curse was brilliant, ad she seems like such a sweetheart. :)

    1. She certainly does Aimee - I'm a huge fan of her work, so it would be fantastic to tell her how much I love her books in person!

  3. I definitely need to check the other novels written by Ginger Scott since I very much enjoyed How To Deal With Gravity.
    Great list - I hope you get to meet some, if not all, of these authors one day :)

    1. If you loved that one Milka, you're sure to love her others - they're all brilliant in my opinion. Thanks for stopping by :)

  4. One day, Eugenia! ONE DAY! (It *will* happen!)

    So happy to be mentioned in the company of such lovely authors, and I totally agree with the twitter convo... wouldn't it be SO GREAT to have a big dinner with everyone? :)

    Hugs to you, lovely! <333

    1. My fingers are crossed Jessica! :) As I said, a bookish dinner party would be amazing for sure.

  5. OH MY GOSH YES, Rachael Craw is amazing <3 <3 <3 And lol, I completely forgot about Markus Zusak in my list :P

    1. She should definitely come to Australia for a signing or something - since she's not *so* far away after all :)

  6. I met Marie Rutkoski, and she's seriously amazing!! I hope you meet her one day :)

    Rachel @ A Perfection Called Books

    1. Wow that's fantastic Rachel, what an opportunity! Thanks for visiting :)

  7. Yess I want to meet Rachael Craw! SHE IS SO FUNNY. I want to hear her do a talk on writing, because I'm like 99% positive it'd be hilarious. ^-^ I'd like to meet Markus Zusak too! The Book Thief...fjadklsad is all I can say.

    1. Yes! She has such a wonderful personality which would make a writing talk by her so entertaining I agree :) The Book Thief made me sob my heart out...and that sort of emotion is something that Markus Zusack has been able to achieve for so many readers, which is really something special.
