Answers to Author Pictures

Here's the answers to my Author Pictures which I posted last week for the Weekly Geek assignment (with my thoughts on the subjects in blue):

1.Photos of your favorite author(s).

Suzanne Collins
(Can you hardly wait until Aug. 24 and Mockingjay? 
I wonder what she is feeling? 
Is it like butterflies at Christmastime when you are nine?)

The Bronte Sisters
(Lovely painting, don't you think?
 I wish so bad they could still write
 from wherever they are now.
 Maybe they are, and we just can't read it yet, 
until we get to where they are ourselves? 
Now that's an interesting thought.)

2. Photo(s) of the author(s) of the book(s) you’re currently reading.

Robert Jordan
(Mr. Jordan, I'm hooked!)

3. Photo(s) of any author(s) you’ve met in person (even very briefly).

Richard Peck
(Love this picture of him!)

4. A Youtube of (an) author(s) you’ve heard speak.

Shannon Hale, Dean Hale and Nathan Hale
(So this was someone else's video of an event I was actually attending. Very fun!)

5. Any photo(s) you may have of yourself with an author.

Brandon Sanderson
(Love the head tilt! 
But I really wish I'd held up the book he had just signed for me... Warbreaker.)

6. A photo of the author of the book you’ve most recently finished.
Mark Haddon
(Don't know much about this author except he wrote The Curious Incident 
that I just read and quite enjoyed.)

7. Photos of the hottest author(s)!

Sorry, I can only think of the one. I would be "cheating" if I put anyone else here!!! :)

Markus Zusak

(What can I even say about this one? I'm so far gone!
 So cute. 
But, perhaps I could beg. 
PLEASE write another book soon! 
PLEASE come to my area so I can hyperventilate and make a fool of myself say hi!)

Congratulations to any of you who guessed correctly on any of these! Most of you got the Brontes and Mr. Zusak. A couple did well guessing Suzanne Collins and Brandon Sanderson. Way to go!


  1. Cute guessing game.

  2. Darn, I missed this game! Sounded like fun :)

  3. Oh ... wow ... Marcus Zusack is a cutie .. and so talented too!
