Ten Authors I REALLY Want To Meet

I think there may be more than ten authors that I really want to meet. But I will try to make a list of the ten I REALLY REALLY REALLY want to meet.

1. Anne Bishop
Loved every book of hers that I have read so far. The world building is second to none.

2. Pepper Winters
The queen of dark romance for me. Need I say more

3. Anthony Horowitz
The only male author on this list so that really must mean something. I started reading the Alex Rider series, but truly fell in love with the power of five series. Top notch.

4. Kristen Painter
Loved the House of Comarre series. Epic urban fantasy series.

5. Christina Lauren
Beautiful Bastard was really something else and couldn’t put it down.

6. Jodi Ellen Malpas
Lord of the Manor!

7. Alice Clayton
Wallbanger! Don’t really need to say anything else after that. If you have read the book you’ll know what I’m talking about.

8. Kresley Cole
Immortals After Dark. Yes please! Still have to get around to reading the game marker series thou.

9. J Kenner
How can you not feel for Damien? He really is the alpha male.

10. K.M. Golland
I read temptation in one siting. That alone says everything I need to say.

Of course there are more and I can’t wait to finally meet some of the authors when I attend the Fictionally Yours event in Melbourne, Australia in October.

Review:

I hate that feeling you get when a series comes to an end. I didn’t want to read the last book knowing this was going to be the case. However read it I did.
While there was not one big action scene that I thought there would be, there were still many twists and turns. Nothing is ever easy for Mal and Chrysabelle. If everything were I wouldn’t be reading these books.
A beautiful conclusion to the series. One I will surely read again.
