Top Ten Tuesday – Authors I Really Want To Meet

Top Ten Tuesday is run by The Broke and the Bookish so go check them out.For this list I chose only authors that are living to help myself cut it down to just ten. I’d probably ask all of the authors on this list for different tips with my own writing. I’d also flail around not knowing how to talk for some of them.

1.David Levithan– I have loved every single thing i have read from this wonderful man. I would want to tell him how much his books got me through some difficult times in high school and thank him for that.

2.Jay Bell– I love the romances that Jay bell Writes. I also just want to be friends with Jay and his husband,

3.Margaret Atwood– Oryx and Crake is one of the few books that I will always be willing to reread. I just love her novels.

4.Brent Hartinger– The Real Story Safe Sex Project is something that I am really glad exist and it’s thanks to this author. Russel Middlebrook is one of my favorite characters also.

5.Tamora Pierce– The Circle of Magic series is to this day my favorite fantasy series. I will never forget the characters, especially since I haven’t finished the follow up series yet.

6.Robin Reardon– Robin writes stories that more people need to read. I feel like I always learn something new from her books. Even if it’s just realizing something about my own beliefs. I definitely recommend the Evolution of Ethan Poe.

7.Adam Silvera– His novel hasn’t even come out yet and I am way too excited to read it. I love his tweets and his appearance on the Epic Reads youTube channel. I just want to be friends with him.

8.Rick Riordan– I grew up reading his series. First Percy Jackson. Then Heroes of Olympus. I absolutely love the worlds that he can create.

9.Perie Wolford– I love Encounter so much that I definitely have to put Perie on this list. I love his sci-fi and also enjoyed the first book in his Turning 16 series.

10. Piper Vaughn– Piper Vaughn wrote one of my favorite M/M romances of the last couple years when she wrote Wanting. Can’t wait for the next book in the series to come out.

Top 5 Wednesday | Books I Want to See As TV Shows

                                                           Top 5 Wednesday

     Created/Hosted by Lainey

I definitely prefer the idea of a book becoming a TV show to it becoming a movie. in a show I feel like there is a opportunity to really cover the entire book and an entire series well. you don’t have to leave anything out because you can have each episode focus on a different section of the book. This won’t necessarily always be the case, but I like the idea of it. I’ve also seen way too many book to movies fail. not enough have been as successful as Harry Potter.Still it was really hard do come up with five for this list. Here’s the list and a video where I talk about it on YouTube is going up when I no longer have technical issues,

5. Chronicles of Nick by Sherrilyn Kenyon

6696602

I actually have heard there are talks for a movie with this series, but I feel l;like I’d like Nick way more as a TV character than in a book or movie.You’d get the time to really see him develop into the person he becomes in the later half of the series. The Dark hunter world is really great as well.

4.Sam Dorsey and The Gay Popcorn/ Turning 16 series by Perie Wolford

turning 16

Loved the first book and hated the second. I somehow feel like the second book would work so much better as a TV show. It feels like the appropriate amount of drama and comedy to be like Faking It or Awkward on MTV. I’d definitely rather watch a character like Sam than read him.

3. The Gay Youth Chronicles by Mark Roeder-

160883372_small

This is a series with thirty something books all about growing up, discovering one’s self, coming out, and living life as young and gay. So many different topics are hit in this series that follows the lives of interrelated characters from the 1940’s to now. The television series could start at so many different points, but I feel like it would be amazing wherever it started.

2. Heroes of Olympus/Percy Jackson by Rick Riordan

7736182

I loved  the Heroes of Olympus way more than Percy Jackson and the Olympians, but I understand you really need to start with Percy Jackson. Give it a chance on TV so that it will be done so much better than the movies did. They missed so much and changed so much in the two films that I could not stand it. I’d want it to get another chance.

1. Circle of Magic book Series by Tamora Pierce –

I would do anything to get this book series turned into a TV show. Honestly I feel like it would be amazing.The entire magic system in the books. Creating the world of Emelan would be brilliant. Plus I feel like you could have two of the four’s stories going on at once sometimes. Specifically when you got to the Circle Opens and the Circle Reforged series. That sounds like it could mess things up , but I believe it could be done really well. Tamora Pierce has written amazing female characters that deserve to be seen by and influence more people.  I believe Tamora Pierce does not want her books to be movies, but if she hasn’t thought about TV shows I hope she does.

Top 5 Wednesday: Books That Feature Traveling

Here are my top 5 books that feature traveling for Top 5 Wednesday.  This is my first one on my new blog. Didn’t do a video this week because of  a new series I want to start on my YouTube that will be up soon hopefully. This list wasn’t hard at first, but then I started to think about types of travel and complicated things for myself.  What books are on your list?

Jordy is on his own in New York City, and it’s working fine, until Chloe comes along. She’s 18, blond and pretty. She’s seen things no-one should ever see.

Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan

The Will of the Empress- Tamora Pierce

This book is great because we get the four main characters of the series reuniting to help Sandry. Sandry, Daja, Briar, and Tris have grown up and grown apart, but get the chance to find their old connection again on their journey together to meet a powerful empress.
