Sorry I’ve been a bit MIA recently… being back at school is wiping me out! I’m hoping to get a few blog posts up next week though, so you’ve got something to read (if you want to read them, ha!)
This week sees the first week of #SixforSunday does October. This month, we are getting into the Autumnal feels and thinking about all kinds of wonderful autumnal feels!
October – Pumpkin spice goodness
4th – Characters/authors you’d like to go for coffee with
11th – Characters you’d be scared to meet
18th – Books that gave you feels
25th – Scary stories/characters
This week, we’re taking on
Characters/authors you’d like to go for coffee with
I’ve gone just authors, because when I started writing down characters, I had about 50… and authors was much easier to narrow down. Some of these are because I love them, they’re my pals or because I’ve never had the chance to sit down and have a chat with them and I’d really love to!
- Melinda Salisbury
Obviously. Who else would go first on my list? I’m a big, big Mel fan and I’d love to just hang out with her for an hour chatting all things books and non-books too!
- Sara Barnard
Another obvious answer probably. I adore Sara: she’s the nicest, most wonderful soul and we’ve never really had the chance to sit down and have a chat… so I’d love that
- Laura Steven
One of my friends in the real world (I know, it’s mad) but I adore Laura and I proper miss being able to hang out with her. She’s hilarious and I’d love to sit down with her again with a cuppa and just chat.
- Stephen Fry
I can’t not include Stephen Fry on this list. I adore the man. He’s just so wise. Plus, he’s got one of those voices I could listen to for hours on end.
- Kiran Milwood Hargrave
I adore Kiran and she’s just a gorgeous soul. Ideally our cuppa would happen in her house so I could meet her gorgeous cat, Luna (I mean this in the least creepy sense, ha!)
- Abi Elphinstone
Abi’s kids books absolutely blow my mind. I’d love to get the chance to have a sit down with her and chat about her amazing books, her amazing travels and everything in between.
Honourable mentions: Ant and Dec, Rosie and Chris Ramsey, Trixie and Katya.
Let’s be honest, I could keep going with this list… but I think this is a pretty solid representation of who I am as a reader and a human. I don’t think this list will really surprise anybody at all.
A massive thank you as ever to everyone who is joining in with my silly little thing! I love #SixforSunday with all that I am, and even though the chat might not have worked out, I’m still going to carry on doing the blog posts because they make me so happy!
I hope you’re all staying safe! I can’t wait to see your posts about who you want to sit down and have a cuppa with!
