Top Ten Tuesday #8

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish. Each week they give a topic, and then other blogs make their top ten lists for that topic.

This week's topic is: Top Ten Bookish People You Want to Meet

Just like usual, the list is in no particular order.
1. J.K. Rowling: Honestly, who wouldn't want to meet her? She's like, the Queen of today's literature. 

2. Maggie Stiefvater: Maggie Stiefvater's books are absolutely amazing, and she seems like such a cool person! Meeting her in person would probably be really fun. 

3. Those People that Run the Big Publishing Companies: Because asking them questions about things like how they got started, what they look for in a book, and what makes books sell would be pretty interesting. 

4. Shakespeare: First off, he's probably one of the best playwrights ever, if not THE best playwright. Secondly, he's a historical figure, so how could that meeting NOT be interesting?

5. Veronica Roth: She's a newly popular author, so it'd be very interesting to pick her brain about how she got started, and got successful, since its all still fresh and current! 

6. Steven Moffat: The showrunner and current writer of the new Doctor Who. His plot developing skills are beyond exceptional.  

7. Neil Gaiman: He just seems like an amazingly fun guy! He is still a kid at heart, and his stories are fabulous. He also wrote an episode of Doctor Who... starstruck moment... :)

8. Andrew Sims: Book/Movie/TV show reviewer for, and host of my favourite podcast, MuggleCast. I've been reading and listening to his opinions about Harry Potter and other books/movies, and I have to say, he never fails to entertain me. 

9. J.R.R Tolkien: Who in their right mind would pass up an opportunity to meet this wizard with words? This mastermind of fantasy? The world he created was just so vast and complete, it's sometimes hard to believe it all came out of one person's imagination! 

10. Lemony Snicket/ Daniel Handler: His writing style is unique a quirky, and to be completely honest, it'd be fun to ask what it's like to have a pen name!
