Happy Tuesday everyone! As it is Tuesday, it is time for a Top Ten Tuesday update. Top Ten Tuesday is an original blog meme created by The Broke and the Bookish and is currently being hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

This week’s given topic is Bookish People I’d Like To Meet

These can be authors, book characters, book bloggers/influencers, cover designers, cover models, etc. There is this saying that goes one shouldn’t go meet the people they idolize.
