Top Ten Tuesday: Pass the gravy!

 A feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

This weeks topic: Top Ten Authors I'd Love To Have At My Thanksgiving Feast!
  1. Neil Gaiman - "So Neil, I just love your stories! Did I ever tell you that you're an genius? Also, would you marry me?"
  2. Rachel Caine - "Rach, would you pass the potatoes? Also, you're my writing hero. I just love your world-building techniques! Would you consider adopting me?"
  3. Stephen King - "Seriously Steve, where do you get the ideas for your stories? Did you know that The Shining would scare the living daylights out of me for many years to come? Also, these cranberries are fantastic!"
  4. Chuck Palahniuk - "Okay, Chuck's running a bit late, but it's worth the wait. Trust me, Chuck's got stories!"
  5. J. K. Rowling - "So J, how are you enjoying our American holiday? Would you consider writing more Harry Potter books?  I mean what else is in store for Harry. I feel as though his story isn't over yet. Wait, wait! Where are you going?! I have like a million other questions!!!"
  6. Holly Black - "First of all, awesome name! Second, I love your Curse Workers series. What inspired you to write them? How many more to plan to write? Any thoughts on writing another series?"
  7. Rachel Hawkins - "Rach, I just love your Hex Hall series! So much fun! Can you give us a sneak peak into your other series?
  8. Margaret Atwood - "Thanks for the wine Margaret! It's delicious! I just adore your feminism approach in your writing. Your dystopian novels are just amazing. If I could write like anyone, it would be you."
  9. Rachel Cohn and David Levithan - "Thank you both for bring the rolls! How do you approach your novels when using alternating voices to narrate? Do you have another book in mind to write?"
  10. Julie Kagawa - "Jules, this pie is amazing! By the way, I just loved your Iron Fey series! Could you give us a little insight into your next series coming up?"

So which authors would you invite to your Thanksgiving meal?


  1. Neil would be fun! He would be even cooler to have over for Halloween ;)

  2. Great list of authors to have over for dinner.

  3. Steven King! I'd want to ask him how he comes up with ALL THOSE STORIES! I have no idea how an author can be so prolific.

  4. Awesome list of authors! I also wanted to say that I love the look of the blog! I'm a new follower. :)
