Marissa Meyer: I love the Lunar Chronicles series. Luckily when I started reading them all three books were already available so I was able to read each one. Now I’m eagerly awaiting Winter. Each of her books has a male protagonist that you just can’t help swooning over. I would love to talk to her about her characters especially Prince Kai, Wolf, and Thorne and find out who were her inspirations for each one.
Laini Taylor: I love her Daughter of Smoke and Bone series, and Akiva and Karou are two of my favorite characters. Also, Laini just looks like she’d be a cool and fun person to talk to and hang out with. Not to mention that I love her pink hair and would love to see it up close.
John Corey Whaley: I absolutely love his books. I read his first book, Where Things Come Back when he was a debut author. Then when I read Noggin, I could honestly say that I would read all of his books. He appears to be such a nice, fun young man that I would enjoy chatting with. Plus, I’d ask him how in the world he came up with the idea for Noggin, and what he has coming up next.
Jessica Park: Jessica is not as well-known an author as some of the others on my list, but I’m a fan. Her book Flat-Out Love was one of the first contemporary YA books that I ever read and I absolutely LOVED it. I’ve also read the companion novels to Flat-Out Love. She was one of the authors that contributed to Teen Lit Rocks when we first got started, and I would love to personally thank her for that.
Although I didn’t include them on my list because technically I’ve met these authors, I would love to be able to spend time with them: Gayle Forman, Rainbow Rowell, Stephanie Perkins, and Margaret Stohl.
