Ten Authors I’d Love To Have
Sharing My Table at Thanksgiving
|1. The One, The Only
Come on, people!
Let’s not act like we didn’t already know this.
Nerdfighter for life, right here.
(Probably the oldest one.)
**John, it doesn’t have to be Thanksgiving,
you’re invited to any meal, any time.
|2. Hank Green
brother to John & fellow Nerdfighter
|4. Justin Torres|
I have so many questions and comments about
Torres’ book We The Animals.
Mostly, I have a big, huge question about the end.
No better person to ask than the person who wrote it.
And no better place than the Thanksgiving table, right?
|5. Erin Morgenstern|
Erin Morgenstern wrote what is probably one of my
top three books this year.
|The Night Circus|
I think I’d love to talk to her about
|6. Ellen Hopkins|
Wouldn’t it be lovely to have a Poet at the table?
I have never grown such an immense respect for an author
in such a short amount of time.
In just a couple of weeks, I have DEVOURED
three of Hopkins’ books
(Triangles, Crank, & Glass)
and am eager to devour the rest of them.
I would give so much to talk about her process, her history,
the thoughts behind her stories,
and where she summons her strength when she writes.
I’d also LOVE to talk about her status as a challenged author.
Ellen Hopkins is amazing and her work is unlike any other.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
|7. Tahereh Mafi|
|8. Rick Riordan|
I love Percy Jackson. So, so much.
|8. John Connolly|
Author of this AMAZING book:
|The Book of Lost Things|
|9. Cormac McCarthy|
TOTALLY agree with Tahereh Mafi. So hilarious.
I'm trying to imagine Rick Riordan (who I have met several times) and Cormac McCarthy (who has not shown up to receive a prestigious prize at an event I attended) in a conversation. Rick would never stop talking and Cormac would probably not speak (if he showed up at all!)
Here's my Top Ten: Top Ten Authors I'd Love to Have at My Thanksgiving Feast. I hope you will stop by and sign up for my November Giveaway and my Gratitude Giveaway. I'm giving away two $25 Amazon gift cards!
Yup, the Greens, Ness, Connolly, and McCarthy – I would pee my pants at this Thanksgiving dinner!!
Rick Riordan! Woooo! That would make for an awesome Thanksgiving table. I would just talk about Percy the whole time. Also, I would attempt to see if Riordan has any secret connections with Logan Lerman as he does play Riordan's character. (Yes, I have a big, giant secret crush on Lerman :P)
This seems a bit like it's all over the place. Sorry about that. 😛
Great list 😉 and I loved the format…visuals of authors and their books! yum.
I really enjoy reading Riordan books – and it would be a pleasure to invite him over for Thanksgiving 🙂
Cormac McCarthy would be so cool to have over for dinner! I'm just now reading Pretty Horses and loving it.
Can we share Tahereh Mafi & Erin Morgenstern? They can eat multiple Thanksgiving meals, right?? 🙂
I'm not familiar with any of your guest so i need to be at that turkey table too.
Erin Morgenstern, Anne Rice, and John Connolly! Now that sounds veeeery interesting! I'm crashing your party!
I want to ask Anne Rice if she's ever going to finish her series on the life of Christ, which is SO AMAZING!
i'm fairly certain that if i ever meet Patrick Ness in person i will burst in to flames, thereby proving Spontaneous Combustion as a legit scientific fact.
he is just so great.
I'd love to pick Erin Morgenstern's brain!
Gah, I loved reading The Night Circus so much, it was all I could do not to go straight back to the beginning as soon as I'd finished the first time. And speaking of the cover art, have you checked out the UK version? I might like it ever more than the US.
