Top Ten 8 Thanksgiving Week :)

I'm participating again in Top Ten Tuesday hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Basically every Tuesday the peeps over at The Broke and the Bookish post their top ten lists on various topics. They even have a special Top Ten Tuesday page where they have previous topics and upcoming topics discussed as well.

This weeks topic is....

Top Ten Authors You'd Like to Have at Your Turkey Day 
Dinner Table

1. JRR Tolkien. This man opened up my world to the creation of fantastical lands and adorable Hobbits. I can think of no other author I'd dearly love to meet and share a bite with than Mr. Tolkien. 
2. Gail Carriger (okay we're two for two on two proper English authors who don't celebrate this holiday, swell) oh and one is dead, lol) I heart the Soulless Books so very much. I would be honored to have a meal with such a witty and clever lady, and you got it, Gail would insist we all dress in our finest attire and it would certainly be flavored after the well-mannered Victorians with a steamy twist.
3.  Brandon Sanderson. I am in awe of how fast this authors writes books, not only is he quick, but each story still captures my full attention and I can't help but want to be in each book. He would  be a kick ass dinner guest.
4. Libba Bray. She seems like an absolute hoot.  I think we would get along quite well.
5. Kristin Cashore. Kristin is a beautiful writer and her two books are favorites of mine. I can't wait for Bitterblue next year.
6. Sarah Allen Addison. This author writes the most whimsical and charming stories, and I bet she would bring a kick-ass dessert since she writes about food in all her books.
7. Jane Austen (yea I had to go there) Ms. Austen is my hero. Simple.
8. Richelle Mead. and maybe she could bring Adrian, lol
9. Kim Harrison. The Hollows is one epic series that has me laughing and growing with her fabulous characters.
10. Patrick Rothfuss. I can't get enough of my high adventure fantasy authors.

I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday. Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!

Brandon Sanderson would be a good one too. I didn't put him on my list, but he'd definitely be an honorable mention!

That would be Nora Roberts, JK Rawlings, Stephen King, Tolkien, and Jane Austin.
