Top Ten Bookish People I Want to Meet


Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

This week's topic is Top Ten Bookish People You Want To Meet (Authors, Bloggers, etc.).  These are not in any particular order! Book links either go to my review, Amazon or CBD; author links go to their Amazon page or CBD list so you can see everything they've written.

Top Ten Bookish People I Want to Meet

1. & 2. J.R.R. Tolkien & C.S. Lewis
Wouldn't it be amazing to have been able to listen in on an Inklings meeting!

3. Anne Elisabeth Stengl
Author of Heartless, Veiled Rose, Moonblood, and Starflower
Maybe I'll be back in the States when book five comes out...here's to hoping a book signing will take place Summer of 2013

4. Kara from My Thoughts and Reviews
She has been so encouraging! And she puts lots of thought and prayer into her reviews.

5. G.A. Henty
Author of dozens of adventure stories for boys, he was very famous in his day
My favorites are Beric the Briton and The Dragon and the Raven
He told his stories and a secretary wrote it down. It would be a lot of fun to be in the room as he "wrote" his books.

6. Keli Gwyn
Author of A Bride Open Shop in El Dorado, California
Earlier this summer Keli contacted me about doing an interview as part of her series of book reviewer interviews, I was speechless at first and felt very honored. She seems like a fun person to have tea with.

7. Martha Finley
Author of the Elsie Dinsmore and Mildred Keith books
Her writing style is quite different than today's fare and many would dislike the overtly Christian content, but I've read almost all her books and she would be a wonderful person to have a conversation with and get to know.

8. Peter, Susan, Edmund, Lucy, Mr. Tumnus, Reepicheep, Aslan, etc.
Characters (the good ones) from The Chronicles of Narnia

9. & 10. Abbi from Christian Novels and Melanie from Christian Bookshelf Review
Two bloggers that were an inspiration and an encouragement when I was starting out
