Top Ten Tuesday (3)

Top Ten Authors I'd Love to Have at my Thanksgiving Feast

1. JK Rowling - Not saying I'd be coherent enough to actually speak to her, but she would definitely be the first author I'd invite. 

2. Laini Taylor - She has awesome pink hair, therefore, she is invited. 

3. Lauren Oliver - She's a favorite author of mine, so naturally, I'd love to have her as a Thanksgiving guest. Plus, maybe I could manage to get some insider info on Pandemonium ;)

4. Meg Cabot - I'd mostly want Meg over just to say how I'm thankful for the books she's written. Even in the worst moments of my life, where everything was just terrible, Meg's books were a comfort zone that I'm eternally thankful for. 

5. Sarah Dessen - Same reasoning as above. I am a long-time Dessen fan :)

6. Maggie Stiefvater - She's Maggie freaking Stiefvater. That's reason enough for wanting her over.  

7. Daisy Whitney - Loved her debut, and Daisy always seems so cheerful. Who wouldn't want someone like her at their Thanksgiving feast? The mood in the room would brighten immediately. 

8. Jay Asher - Poor Jay, he's the only guy I picked! Anyway, he's an awesome writer and he always seems so amusing on Facebook & his blog, so he would definitely have a place at my (very small) table. 

9. Maureen Johnson - She's kinda crazy, especially on Twitter, and therefore would make an amusing addition to the guest list. Maureen is practically all the entertainment you'd need during Thanksgiving dinner. 

10. Nancy Holder - Nancy is just so nice online! How could I not invite her? It'd be great to actually meet her in person. 



  1. My table seems to be overrun by females too. It's ok at least we'll have fun and can eat as much as we want. I love Lauren Oliver too. I'm actually giving away a signed copy of Delirium so stop back at my blog if you want a chance to win.

  2. Love Dessen too. Love Maureen on twitter, but I need to read one of her books.

  3. We have lots of the same authors! :) Haha, I wouldn't be coherent enough to speak to JK Rowling either.

    My Top Ten :)

  4. Awesome picks! And yes to the pink hair of Laini Taylor! Meg Cabot is also my go-to for comfort reading and it would be so amazing to thank her in person.

  5. I have mostly females at my table for Thanksgiving on my list - and Meg, Maggie & JK are all on my list too :)

  6. Great choices! I still need to read some of these authors books!

  7. Awesome list! I wish I could have fit more people or a lot of your choices would have been on mine list, as well. Love the blog! I'm a new follower! :)

  8. Great Thanksgiving list! Nice blog, new follower :)

  9. Great list! I wouldn't be able to say anything to Jo either so it might be a waste to have her over for dinner. But just to be in her presence, really.
