Welcome to Bookish Blatherings, a Bad Bird Reads feature where I ramble about bookish or bloggerish things and hopefully you will join in on the discussion.
I have to admit, I don’t have a lot of time to stalk very many authors. I only follow a few through various methods of social media. But there are a couple that I HAVE to keep up with because they are fucking awesome! Like, the best thing since sliced bread (fun fact: Betty White is older than sliced bread! For reals.). These authors just do it for me in everyway. These are my top 3 author crushes:
3. John Green
I haven’t even read a book by John Green yet (don’t judge, he makes people cry, I hate crying!) but I can still enjoy this man’s hilarious genius. This guy always knows the right things to say in an interviews and he posts laugh-worthy and thought-provoking videos on YouTube. He really is a great guy all around. And cute. And he wears classes. OMG, nerdgasm activate! He would make a perfect partner.
2. Tahereh Mafi
She is 100% the funniest author I have ever met. I have met her twice at book signings. Both times she made the room roar in laughter. She is smart as a whip. She wears the tallest platform shoes I have ever seen. And her style is banging! Her husband, Ransom, also a writer, is just as funny as her. I could see myself having so much fun hanging out with these two. You have to check them out on YouTube or Twitter.
1. Ilona Andrews
Ilona and Gordon are a married writing team. They are my favorite authors of all time! I met them one time and they are amazing together. I laughed and I almost cried. You can feel the passion oozing from them when talking about their writing. My favorite way of following them is their Blog and Twitter. They talk about everything you wished an author would talk about: Tips on writing, sneak peaks of their books, and a lot about their personal lives, surprisingly. I feel like I know them. I know, I am a total stalker. I wish I could just be in their house for one day and watch the genius flow free. Ilona and Gordon, will you adopt me?
Who are your favorite authors you like to stalk online because of their humor, intelligence, or so on? These are the authors you like as people, not just because of their writing.
