Authors I'd really love to meet in person...

From top left to bottom right:

Nick Hornby - The first novel I ever read in English was his About A Boy. Thanks for starting my passion for reading.

Haruki Murakami - Murakami writes weird but beautiful books. Would love to get to know a man with such an impact on the reading world.

Jonathan Safran Foer - I fell for Extremely Loud and Incredibliy Close. Is there more to say?

Carlos Ruiz Zafon - Of course I'd like to meet the author of my favorite book all time The Shadows of the Wind.

Margaret Atwood- Look at her. She is so awesome. I'm determined to read all of her books.

Siri Hustvedt - Never heard of her? Go read her book What I loved.

Jeffrey Eugenides - I lost myself in his epic Middlesex. I sure would like to take a closer look at him.

Jon Krakauer - His encounter with Mount Everest nearly pushed me off the cliff.

Banana Yoshimoto - Her books fascinate me. I sure would like to have a cup of tea with her in any Kitchen.

Zadie Smith - Her books have been most challenging reads language wise. And she has written On Beauty.

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.


  1. Very eclectic list. I also enjoy Krakauer, Eugenides, Atwood, and Foer.

  2. I'd like to meet some of those too, especially Zadie Smith (love White Teeth), Carlos Ruiz Zafon (loved, loved The Shadow of the Wind) and Mr Murakami.
