Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm. This week’s topic is about bookish maps, but I am separated from my books right now so I can not look through them to find maps, and I also do not read a lot of books with maps! I thought I would instead choose a topic from a past Top Five Tuesday that I missed. This week I am sharing five authors that I want to meet! Of course there are so many authors that I would want to read so it was hard for me to narrow it down!
This is actually happen in October!! My dad and I are going to a Mitch Albom event for the release of his new book, The Next Person You’ll Meet in Heaven. He is my favourite author, and I have read every single one of his books and many of them multiple times. It is actually my dad who introduced me to Mitch Albom and put Tuesdays With Morrie in my hands. I think it is going to be so special for us to go to the signing together.
Heather O’Neill wrote The Lonely Hearts Hotel, which was my favourite book of last year. I have faith that I am going to love all of her other novels. She is also Canadian so my chances of actually meeting her are much higher. She is so talented and just seems so cool. I have so much respect for her!
Who doesn’t love Markus Zusak?! I would love to meet the genius who wrote the wonder that is The Book Thief. He is releasing a new book called Bridge of Clay so he must be going on a book tour soon right?!? I have also read a few interviews with him and he seems like an interesting person. I would love to have a conversation with him!
I have read and absolutely loved two books by Sarah Winman and she has quickly become one of my favourite authors. I honestly do not know a lot about her but I would love to just sit in a room and hear her read from one of her brilliant novels, particularly Tin Man.
I have read and loved all of Jeannette Walls books and I have come to really respect her and I am inspired by her. I have read multiple interviews with her and watched quite of few videos as well, and there is something about her that draws me in. I actually think I would be tongue-tied if I met her!

I’d love to meet Markus Zusak, too! I can’t wait for his new book!!
I am so excited!!!🎉
Oh that Mitch Albom event will be so great – I’m jealous! Tuesdays With Morrie was my first introduction to him, too (thanks to my mom), and his books are some of the few gut-wrenching books I re-read.
I can not wait for the event! His books are some of the only ones I ever reread!
Markus Zusak would be a dream come true! He’s such an amazing writer!!!
He really is!!
I’d love to meet Jeanette Walls too! She’s such a strong and inspiring person. I’ve read all her books, but The Glass Castle had left such a huge impression on me.
I am in awe of her. She’s so amazing! Glass Castle has stuck with me as well!
Love these choices! I wrote to Markus Zusak back when I was pint-sized and I just about passed out when I got a reply letter. I imagine I’ll literally just implode with excitement if I ever get the chance to meet him in person! 😀
Aw wow that is so amazing! I love that authors take the time to respond to fan letters!
Alternate title for this post: the Five Authors You Meet in Heaven
Hahaha that is actually amazing!
I would love to meet Markus Zusak too! And Goodreads just started hosting a Bridge of Clay giveaway today! You should enter! 😀
Ohhh that is good to know! Thank you!
I love this list!!
Neat tweak Kristin 😉
It would be so cool to meet Markus Zusak! I’d also love to meet J.K. Rowling, though I know that’s for sure not going to happen…also Chris Colfer, because I admire him so much as an author, actor, and person!
Ah Chris Colfer! Love him!😍
Great choice of authors! I’ve only read a couple books by Mitch Albom but I liked them. I hope you have a blast meeting him! <3
Thank you!! I can’t wait!!
I’m so excited for you going to Mitch Albom event! Your dream comes true!! So jealous 🙂
Aw thank you! It really is!!
Loved the post. 💖💖
Now I’m off to find out if Zusak is touring for Bridge of Clay! Great all around list of authors 🙂
I did the same thing! 😋 Thank you!
Hello Kristin 🙂
I am a big fan of The Book Thief and The Glass Castle so I would absolutely want to meet Markus Zusak and Jeannette Walls! Great post 🙂
Thank you! Wouldn’t that just be amazing! We both can dream!
Mark Zusak is an Aussie. I haven’t ever heard of him ever doing a book tour before, but if he does one in here (and comes to Melbourne) I’ll let you know. x
Ah I’d be so jealous!!
If he does I’ll get something signed for you 🙂
That would be so amazing and thoughtful of you! Thank you!😀
Mitch Albom is one of mine too! I would love to meet him and know his inspiration for The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto. It’s one of my favorite books! Your post here inspired me to do one of my own, thanks 😊
I was so lucky to meet him last year. He’s an incredible man. Actually reading his newest release as we speak! Will definitely check out your post!
