TGIF: Authors Are Our Celebrities

Who's ready for the weekend?? I know I am! Ginger @ GReads  
has created this super fun meme that poses a bookish question to be answered each week.

Authors are our celebrities:
Have you ever contacted an author you admired? How did that experience go? If not, which author would you love to have a chat with?

Unfortunately, I've never really been in contact with a much-admired author... unless you count that one instance a few days ago where I wished the fabulous Rachel Vincent a happy birthday on facebook, and she actually replied with a thank you.... and I then proceeded to squeal in an embarrassingly fangirl-ish manner...
But yeah, aside from that, no, I've never contacted an author before...

However, I would like, really want, LOVE give my firstborn child to chat with fantabulous authors like Cassandra Clare (where I would probably gush about how full-on obsessed I am with her male characters...) and Stephanie Perkins (because she just looks like such a cool person to hang out with--I mean, have you seen her hair?!) and John Green (because I am *slightly* obsessed with his books and youtube videos... but I highly doubt I'd be able to actually carry on a conversation with someone as smart and witty as he is, so most likely, I'd just oggle him and nod accordingly as he talks to me...).


  1. John Green and Stephanie Perkins would be amazing to hang out with! They both just seem like aweosme and down to earth people.

    I get the same way when an author I'm in awe of responds on twitter or Facebook! it kinda makes my day.

    Check out my moment here!

  2. HA! I am pretty much star-struck by all authors. I practically giggled like a little girl when I met Jasper Fforde. Kind of embarrassing, but I can't help it!

    Here's mine.

  3. I would DEFINITELY want to meet Stephanie Perkins. She's written some of my all-time favorite books and she just seems like such a fun person. I've chatted with her on Twitter a few times, and she's so incredibly nice.


Thanks so much for commenting! I read every single one and they always make my day! <3

*Sorry, this is now an awards-free blog as I've already been nominated for them. Thanks for your consideration!
