Books: His Fair Assassin series
You know what I love? When an author takes time out of their life to talk to fans on Twitter. We had a whole conversation about having a Mexican night where I could wrangle details out of her. She also responded very quickly when I asked for an interview. Awesome author award goes to her!
Books: Prom & Prejudice, The Lonely Hearts Club, Take a Bow...
Once again, another author who actually tweeted me back via Twitter and complimented my blog in reference to what I said about her book.
Books: The Naturals - okay, I really can't list anything after that because that book is AWESOME.
She tweeted me back and I really had to resist from giving her a big virtual hug because her book is amazing.
Books: Something Like Normal, Where the Stars Still Shine
My interaction with her was quite a while ago, but I still remember feeling like I just talked to one of the nicest authors on the planet. It was also in my very early blogging days where I realized that authors were people too. She was just super nice.
Books: The Ghost and the Goth trilogy, The Rules
This woman gave me my first ever author interview. She was beyond nice, gracious, and wonderful. I also received an ARC of the fantastic The Rules after I interviewed her. I don't know her on some personal level, but although she's an amazing author, she seems like an amazing person as well.
Books: Under the Never Sky series
I remember having a Twitter interaction with her and thinking, "She is SO nice!"
Books: The Lunar Chronicles
I emailed her for an interview and she replied saying that she was really busy, but would get back to me as soon as possible. So not only did she actually reply, but throughout her busy schedule, she sent back the email full of interview answers.
Books: The Geisha series
She writes wonderful books and also participates in the Twitter author niceness. I had a very small interaction with her, but I follow her on Twitter and see she's very nice to a lot of her fans.
I WILL BE SEEING HER THIS YEAR! YAY!!!! From now until then, I will be training my self-control so that I will not tackle her for a hug. I like hugs.
Books: The Boyfriend App
I have her book in my library book pile which really resulted in my conversation with her. We had a short conversation about her book and my library and then she went inside HER library and gave a copy to them. Yeah, it's her book, but she didn't have to give them a copy, which is really nice and generous.
Books: Lots and lots of Amish titles
My mom reads lots of Amish books and while I can never keep track the titles, I like them as well. Way back when, my mom and I emailed her and I had a whole exchange with her and she REMEMBERED us! You win, Mrs. Fisher.
Books: The Thief series
She's the object of my sister's affection and way back when, I sent an email to her which she replied to. Replying to emails is something I love in a person.
Books: The Gallagher Girls. Heist Society series
I can rave about her all day long, which I probably do on a weekly basis anyways. However, I met her at a reading festival this year and I was so tongue tied, but I witnessed a great exchange between her and my sister. She also waved "hi" to us and told us to have a good day later when we walked by her. I really wanted to give her a hug...but did the whole "self-control" thing that I mentioned earlier.
Honorable mentions: Gail Carson Levine (author of Ella Enchanted and many others) when I met her at the reading festival, Victoria Schwab (author of The Archived) for more Twitter niceness, J.J. Howard (author of That Time I Joined the Circus) for being so nice on Twitter, Robin Benway (author of Audrey, Wait! and others) for more Twitter loving, and many other authors.
Who are some authors who have been nice to you?
