So it’s time for me to answer the big question:
All true bookworms have their dream list of authors they’d love to meet, but what if you could plan your perfect panel of authors (or even characters) you’d love to hear speak at a conference?
Hmm. Great question. Who would I invite?
- Veronica Rossi
I am a big fan of Rossi’s series Under The Never Sky. Recently she came out with Riders, a book about the horsemen of the Apocalypse. Aria and Perry are my dream ship, so why wouldn’t I want to meet the lady who created me book bf?
- AG Howard
I loved the Splintered series. And I’ve been dying to read Roseblood. I love the Alice in Wonderland retelling of Splintered and it has two ships that people fought for: Alyssa and Morpheus and Alyssa and Jeb. I was a Jeb shipper and always will be.
Go team Jeb. ::sigh::
- Melinda Salisbury
Yup, I loved The Sin Eater’s Daughter and The Sleeping Prince. They are beautiful books that I would love to own, and I want to pick the brain of the woman who created such an amazing novel! I can’t wait for The Scarecrow Queen!
- Suzanne Young
This one is major important. I can’t have a panel without her. You know why? She’s the reason I’m becoming a teacher!
That’s right: I read The Program series and saw that Young was an English teacher, and I realized that if I want to write then I could also teach, too! She’s incredible and she has not abandoned her fans to write “adult” novels like some authors (::cough:: Meyer ::cough). She stays true to her audience and keeps writing amazing YA novels.
- Neal Schusterman
You didn’t think my panel was all women, did you? I love Schusterman’s Unwind dystology, and I’ve been waiting to get my hands on a copy of Scythe ever since I heard about its conception. I would love to meet this evil genius!
Oh, yeah…panel pic!
Hmmm…I think my panel is almost complete….but maybe one more…
- Mary E. Pearson
I’m sure I’m forgetting a ton of authors, but I can’t forget Pearson. I loved The Remnant Chronicles and she’s really the first author who wrote a twist I didn’t see coming. Seriously. Read The Kiss of Deception and you won’t be surprised. I lived in this series for days. She also wrote rhe famous Jenna Fox Chronicles and I still need to read the last book. But I want a pic of her books as posters in my room.
One more panel pic!
And that’s it folks. I’m sure I left out tons of amazing authors, but these are at the forefront of my mind all the time. I’d go to this panel and get every books signed.
Oh…my gosh! How could I forget?? I can’t believe I would entertain ANY panel without her!
- Marissa Meyer
Yeah, that’s right! What was I thinking? She’s amaze-balls! I love her Lunar Chronicles series (a lot of series I like are named “Chronicles” I’m noticing). And I just won a Heartless ARC! I love her work and would read anything by her!
So let’s get her thrown into rhe Panel, stat!
Ok. Now I’m done. For real.
That was fun! Do you know who YOU would want in your pretend panel? Love to hear it! I’m sure I forgot some awesome authors!
