Ten Bookish People I NEED to Meet Soon

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and masterminded by my listy friend Jamie.

So I've been incredibly lucky to meet a big chunk of my favorite bloggers and people in my two years of blogging so far, as evidenced below. Tears were shed and smiles were bigger than EVER BEFORE. I've met authors that have changed my whole world.




But there remains a gaping hole in the "people I have yet to tackle hug" category.

1. Carla (Makeshift Bookmark/The Crooked Shelf)
I've spoken to her on the phone before but THIS ISN'T ENOUGH. Blogging is better with a Brit, which is why we blog together. It only seems right after two years of squealing over this and that, that we should be able to do this in person. Not to mention share several cocktails in the process.

2. April (Good Books & Good Wine)
One of my initial blogging idols even before I decided to start a blog of my own, April has been an inspiration to me for a long time. She's practically a staple in my daily texting/book blogging life. Yet another person I need to hug and share cocktails with.

3. Ginger (GReads!)
One of my good friends from the very start, I need to have long discussions over coffee about our favorite books and music with this girl. Life won't be complete until this happens.

4. Capillya (That Cover Girl)
Besides being awesome, she can sing. We are depriving the world of beautiful (at least on her part!) music until we unite and finally have our chance at a duet.

5. Tara (Hobbitsies)
One of my favorite ladies with whom to discuss books. We have very similar tastes, so I think we need to have a reading party someday.

6. Lisa (Lisa is Busy Nerding)
I LOVE THIS GIRL. Can we play Zelda for 15 years?

7. Asheley (Into the Hall of Books)
She understands my nursey problems and was my own personal cheerleader throughout nursing school. I very well may get the chance to meet her in a couple months. VERY EXCITED.

8. Asher (Paranormal Indulgence)
This girl has an unmatched excitability about her that I would LOVE to see in action at an author signing or event.

9. Erica (The Book Cellar)
We've ALMOST met at a couple different events, but one of us was always not able to make it. Can this be fixed?

10. Chelsea (Coffee & Cliffhangers)
One of my musical soulmates. We WILL meet at a concert someday.

11. Melanie (Reclusive Bibliophile)
Because it's a shame we haven't met yet. Perhaps over Pumpkin Spice lattes, we can discuss the awesomeness of psychological thrillers?

12. Sash & Em (Sash & Em)
Because these girls are seriously fun and, hey, they could also teach me how to dress maybe?

  2. Oh my goshhhhh how have you not met some of these people yet?! LET'S MAKE IT HAPPEN! And haha look at our pictures! We are so silly and I love it.

  3. Duuuude. It's happening! Also this is a great list because I need to meet everyone too. Can you just be a great party planner and organize a big centrally-located event?? That would make it EASY on ME. Because I'm the most UNORGANIZED person ever. Still, I'm coming to yonder Kentucky where we will dish everything including our voice-husbands and all of that business (oh my gosh I have SO many husbands). There may even be talk of books over beer.

  10. I love your list! There are quite a few people on here that I thought about adding to mine but, I feel that I haven't had very much interaction with (this includes you and Carla). Hopefully that will change ... and hopefully we both will get to meet Asheley sometime in the near future! :D

    Someday we'll meet and it will be full of drinks and CAPSLOCKING in real life and permpkern sperce and awesomeness.

  13. Many of these same ladies make my top list as well. Though there are tons of authors I'm dying to meet, I'd say that I think bloggers rank a bit higher (for the most part) on my list. I like that I can have a meaningful, thoughtful discussion with genuine people who share the same passions as I do. That's what makes it all worthwhile, don't you think? Such great picks!

  14. Nice list! And thanks for stopping by my TTT--Morganvillers unite! There are not enough people who read those books (WHY NOT?!) and it's always cool to find someone who has! I love that series so much!

  15. Going through this list, I am thinking to myself.. "oh yes, i would like to meet her.. oh! and her.. and her too!"

  16. I think it's always awesome whenever I get the opportunity to meet other bloggers in person. It's fun to meet people you're friends with through blogging/books for real and just know that you guys have this shared passion that brings you together!

  18. I can assure you that 3 of the people on this list are beyond awesome as I have met them myself and adore them. I'm not going to tell you which ones though, so you have to guess. Heh

    Also... LOVE le new look, darlings! You had me at stars. I have a star thing. I love stars.

    The new collab blog will not stop me from leaving my rambling insane comments. Just saying.

  19. Zelda and cheese forever.

    Also I want to be in the room when you meet Carla for the first time because I'm sure it will be a sight to behold!

  20. Woo I've met G & Mel! You've got a fabulous list and I feel like a rockstar even being on it, lady! =)

    I agree with Lisa, I want to be in the room when you meet Carla. It's going to be a room full of either screaming or crying. Maybe even both.
