Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Authors I'd Like to Have Over for Thanksgiving Dinner
  1. Mark Twain - By all accounts, he was a great conversationalist. I think he'd be the life of the party.
  2. Alexandre Dumas - I'd also need a translator. His books were a huge part of my childhood.
  3. Michelle Moran - She's really into history so we could geek out about all kinds of historical characters.
  4. Stephanie Dray - She and Michelle could compare their opinions on Cleopatra Selene.
  5. Phillipa Gregory - We could talk about Anne Boleyn for hours.
  6. Anthony Bourdain - Someone has to make the turkey and amuse the husband.
  7. Dr. Seuss - He can play with CJ and teach him rhymes.
  8. Neil Gaiman - We can geek out over Doctor Who.
  9. JK Rowling - I mean really. 
  10. Charles Dickens - Hopefully we could get him to smile. I feel like he probably didn't smile much when he was alive.
  11. Stephen King - I can't believe I left him off. He's pretty much my favorite contemporary author, plus he's only a few hours away up in Maine, so he could come too.

  1. I picked Mark Twain, too. I read a biography of him last year and I got the impression he'd be great fun at a party. Or a Thanksgiving feast.
