Authors on my "I Sure Hope I Get to Meet Them One Day" List

I've seen some bloggers with a list of authors they'd like to meet and they cross off the list as they meet them.  So I thought it would be fun to write my own list and also keep track of the ones I've had the honor to meet already.

Authors I've Met:
  • Elizabeth Gilbert
  • Ally Carter
  • Maggie Stiefvater
  • Tera Lynn Childs
  • Rachel Hawkins
  • Joy Preble
Authors I Want To Meet:
  • Suzanne Collins
  • Sarah Addison Allen
  • Stephanie Perkins
  • Scott Westerfeld
  • Kiersten White
  • Becca Fitzpatrick
  • Andrea Cremer
  • Beth Revis
  • Richelle Mead
  • Rick Riordan
  • Bree Despain
  • Sarah Rees Brenan
  • Carrie Ryan
  • Shannon Hale
  • Anna Godberson
  • Elana Johnson
  • Jennifer Shirk
  • Kimberly Derting
And of course I'd jump at the chance to meet JK Rowling (and probably Stephenie Meyer--I mean, why not?), but I consider this a near impossibility, so... not going on the list. 

Obviously, as I keep reading this list will get longer, but so far, these are my front runners. 

What about you?  Anyone high up on your I Sure Hope I Get to Meet Them One Day list?


  1. Great list, Kristin! I want to meet Rick Riordan for sure! ;)

  2. I like your list!

    A few authors I've met:
    Tomie DePaola
    Ann Hoffman
    Cynthia Lord
    Suzanne Collins

    Authors I'd like to meet in person:
    Beth Revis
    Elana Johnson

    Dream Authors to Meet:
    Anne Tyler
    JK Rowling
    Harper Lee

    If you get a chance, please visit my blog. I'm holding a 500 follower contest. Great prizes!

  3. I've of course met three of your six, and then add Sarwat.

    Of course, Lauren Oliver is right around the corner!!

    Steph is too busy rolling around in the money room to come to visit us. Hee hee!

  4. I couldn't even begin to make a list. I love so many Authors.

  5. I was at college with Sarah Rees Brennan and she really is lovely, and great fun.

    I think if I could buy anyone in the world a pint, it would be a toss-up between Heather Graham, Kiersten White and the departed soul of JD Salinger.

  6. What an awesome list! And oh my goodness, I want to meet JK Rowling!

  7. OMG RICK RIORDAN! YES!!!!!!!!! haha I would also love to meet Maggie Stiefvater (my author crush), and I'm super jealous that you've met her!!!! I've got to say Beth Revis was fabulous in person. She's so bubbly and wonderful :)

  8. Ditto your list. :)

    Then I'd add: Julie Powell, and Laini Taylor. I'm sure I have more but I can't think of them right now. Ha.
