Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted on The Broke and the Bookish.
I’ve met a fair few local authors through bookstores and things like that, but very few with books that I’ve actually read. So making a list about authors I’ve met would be hard, and I don’t know who I’d really like to meet because there’s something cool about the mysterious person behind the stories I read. So I’m going another way, and making a list of authors I’d love to write my biography if I were ever to become rich and famous or something like that.
The way that Dessen can weave the past and the present into a story is beautiful and I truly believe that she would do a beautiful job of writing someone’s life story, just like she does with her characters’ stories.
Francesca Lia Block
Block’s writing style is so beautiful and lyrical, and her books are always a pleasure to read. You’d get the most beautifully written biography if she were to do it.
If Stirling wrote your biography, it would probably not only be the most energetically written thing in the world, but you’d also probably get a song to go with it, which would be awesome.
Neil Gaiman could probably take my rather uninteresting life and make it amazing, let alone if something really exciting happened in my life.
Specifically in the style Harry Potter over her other books. But it would be cool to have her write your biography.
Gail Carson Levine
Because it would make 7 year old me so happy.
