Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish.
I love classics (as you may well know, if you’ve followed my blog for any extended period of time), so I’m thinking about 3/4 of my list are dead people. Maybe in the time of the zombie apocalypse, I will have my dreams come true… I’d totally let Oscar Wilde chew on my brains.
But come on… could you imagine a party with this lot? It’d be an epic, epic time!
1. Oscar Wilde
The man himself. The Wilde one. I adore him and want him to be my sassy (ghostly) gay boyfriend. It would be amazing. I have the same snarky humour as he does, so I’m thinking we’d be an awesome pair.
2. J.K. Rowling
I’d die of joy if I met Joanne. She’s an amazing human and I want to BE her one day… hopefully as rich as her too. She’s come from such a hard life, to immense fame. It hasn’t seemed to go to her head and she’s a renowned philanthropist. She’s really a woman to look up to.
Another woman I admire. I’d have to ask her so many questions about her life over many cups of tea. She’d be amazing to learn from… I’d love to know her opinions on everything!
4. J.R.R Tolkien
I’d ask him so many things about Middle Earth, and then I would hug him, because he’s such a cuddly looking man.
5. Siegfried Sassoon
I’m pretty sure he wouldn’t like me too much, but then again, I might be able to win him over!
6. Daphne Du Maurier
I love her books so much, she feels like she’d be a lovely lady to talk with.
7. The Bronte Sisters
I want to meet them all, so I’m going to put them in a category all their own. I’d sit them down for a long chat about their respective literary merit, then berate Charlotte for being such a bitch to Anne.
8. Kate Morton
I would hug her and tell her how much I love her books… then tell her to hurry up and write me some more, because she loves me!
9. Lucy Maude Montgomery
I’d just give her a very big hug for inventing Anne. I think it would be on behalf of half of the Western World too. So that’s a really, really BIG hug!
10. Douglas Adams
He’d be hilarious to talk to! I imagine the zaniest of conversations.
