Top Ten Tuesday: Authors I would like to see in a festival

If you’re new to my blog,  welcome to Top Ten Tuesday. It’s held over at That Artsy Reader Girl, where every week bloggers list their top 10 being asked about.  This week’s topic is about those characters that remind me of myself… and yeah, I’m doing one about the authors I would like to see in a festival, having just finished going to the YA day at the Sydney Writer’s Festival.

So in no particular order:

Dhonielle Clayton

She is the author of The Belles, and she was at the session To all the fandoms I’ve loved before. Her tale of love for Outlander, Jamie and stalking Sam Heughan spoke to my inner fangirl so much! Also she is hilarious and I need to see her on her own in a session where she can talk about all the fandoms she wants. Always.

Chris Colfer

That he isn’t as present now as he was during Glee makes me wonder what he’s been up to other than writing the Land of Stories books. But i would like to hear him speak about his writing, and how this world of his has just expanded to a whole series.

Beth O’Leary

I just reviewed The Flatshare and LOVED every bit of it. I do want to know about how she balanced certain themes in the book, and what she wishes she could have included looking back at it now.

Alice Clark-Platts 

The Flower Girls is one of those books that stuck with me for the atmosphere, creepiness and characterisation and I would genuinely like to know more about how she wrote this book and the choices she made.

AA Dhand

His Harry Virdee series is just so damn good. There are so many themes he takes on, family issues and religion and all the while weaving the most compelling stories around them, and just damn.

Jane Harper 

The Lost Man. The way she creates an atmosphere that is just filled with tension and how she creates the Australian outback. Yes, I would listen to her speak at a festival.

Oyinkan Braithwaite

My Sister the Serial Killer. Is one of the most surprising books I’ve read this year, and I urge everyone to read it. I also very much want to see her speak and know how this book came to be.

that’s my list for this week! WHo would you like to see at a festival?
