Top Ten Bookish People I Want to Meet

Hosted over at the Broke and Bookish

In no particular, the bookish people I would give my firstborn like to meet are...

John Green
Have you guys seen his youtube videos?! Have you been introduced to the awesomeness that is the vlogbrothers?? If not, you are seriously missing out. John and his brother Hank are SO witty and hilarious and made of awesomesauce and nerdiness. Oh. Also, he writes fantastic books. Y'know, in case you're into that kind of stuff....

Cassandra Clare
AKA the woman who single-handedly destroyed my sanity with her fictional boys. That's right Will, I'm looking at you! 
I just love her books so freakin' much that I would love to be able to actually meet with the woman who thought it all up. 

Melina Marchetta
This probably doesn't come as a surprise, but I LOVE everything Melina Marchetta. If bookish people had their own deities, Melina Marchetta would be the goddess divine. This woman plays my heartstrings like she's Yo Yo Ma. 

Jackson Pearce
Not only does this lady write great fairy tale retellings (Sisters Red, Sweetly, Fathomless), she is also hilarious. If you haven't checked out her youtube videos, you should definitely go watch some here

Jane Austen
Do dead people count? Oh well, this'll be my cheat for the week. This lady is just made of awesomesauce. If you disagree, you probably haven't read Pride and Prejudice. 

J.K. Rowling
I want to meet this lady because of reasons. OBVIOUS reasons.

Stephanie Perkins
Not only is she a nerdfighter, but she writes fantastic books and swoon-worthy guys and GUYS JUST LOOK AT THE COLOR OF HER HAIR. SHE HAS TO BE SUPER COOL.

Julie Kagawa
Two reasons.
1) The Iron Fey--*ahem* PUCK AND ASH
2) The Immortal Rules--kickbutt female vamp.

Tahereh Mafi
I would love to ask her the secret to writing such beautiful prose and crafting such wonderful metaphors. And fangirl over her writing.

Amazing fellow bookworms! 
Okay, this is pretty broad, but there's really so many awesome bloggers and booktubers out there that I'd love to hang out with--like The Readables, Get Bookish, The Booktubenator, and Elizzie books (all from youtube), and people like the Cuddlebuggery gang or Vivian from Vivaciously, Vivian, Mimi Valentine, and just a whole smorgasbord of fabulous and bookish people <3
