Wishlist Wednesday: Authors I'm Hoping to Meet at BEA 2014

Wishlist Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted at Pen to Paper Blog, in which we feature a book we can't wait to get off of our wish list and onto our shelves!  For the month of May, I'm choosing to participate, but in a little bit different way.  Each Wednesday I'm going to talk about something I'm wishing to happen at BEA this summer.  This week I'm going to talk about the authors I'm hoping to meet in almost exactly 2 weeks!!  Now, because the list is soooooo long, I'm going to stick to the authors I want to meet for the first time.  So many authors I've met before that I can't wait to see again, but again, I'm going to shorten the list a bit this way.  I'll list them in no particular order, other than going through my schedule, so they'll kind of be in order of how I will get to meet them.

Now, there are a few that I've already met that I want to include in this list, because I want to point something out about them.
  • Julie Kagawa:  I met her when I went to BEA in 2012.  BUT, while I knew of her, I hadn't read any of her books yet.  Now that I have, I can really fangirl when I meet her again!
  • Amy Plum:  I think I met her last year at the RT Convention here in Kansas City, but again, I hadn't read any of her books yet.  Now I can actually tell her how I liked them!
  • Maggie Stiefvater:  If you've followed me for awhile, you know that I've met Ms. Stiefvater many times.  And that I have a cool connection of my picture being in a school biography type book of her.  I really want to show her this, and get her autograph in it if possible, even though we're only supposed to have them autograph the book they are "officially" there for.  I'm sneaking it in and trying it anyway.  She is a ticketed author this year.  Pretty cool!
There are many more that I've already met, including several authors that I just saw the other night as part of the Dark Days of Summer Tour.  Next week I'm going to do a wishlist of bloggers I hope to meet. And I can only list the bloggers that I know are going.  So if you're going to be at BEA as well, make sure you let me know so that I can list you and link back to your blog!


  1. Congrats on attending BEA this year! That is an awesome list of authors! Be sure to come back and tell us how cool the authors are. :D

    1. I definitely will be blogging every day I'm there! Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Can't wait to hear of your BEA experience!! I think I'd want to meet just about every author there myself :) I'd be star struck .

    1. There's so many more I want to meet. It will just depend on lines and time! I know last time I went I didn't get to meet Veronica Roth because I didn't know her line would be so crazy long!


I love to get comments and I read them all! If you leave a link in your comment, I just might visit you back.
