Top Ten Tuesday: Most Entertaining Authors

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
This week's topic is: Top Ten Authors Who Should Have Their Own TV Show


I love this week's topic. To me authors pretty much are celebrities, so I definitely think some of them should be on TV. I'm thinking either these people should all be thrown together in some sort of Survivor scenario. Possibly, they'd all be great in a Saturday Night Live situation. Or like The Real World for literary people. That'd be sweet. But I'd be content if these people just had their own talk shows.

1. Sarah Rees Brennan
The first person that came to mind when I saw this weeks topic was Sarah Rees Brennan. I've actually thought this for a long time. She's completely hilarious, pretty much uncensored and quite clever. I met her at YallFest in Charleston last fall, and she just has amazing energy and charisma. Someone NEEDS to give this woman her own show.

2. Karsten Knight
The second person that came to mind. After watching his YA Rebel and other YouTube videos you'll get it too. He's always entertaining and my stomach always hurts from laughing for three minutes straight. Plus, he's not bad to look at...ya know?

3. Myra McEntire
I've loved Myra McEntire since I became aware that Hourglass existed. I've been a loyal twitter follower and reader of her blog (and books of course). She's always fun and sometimes a little serious. But it was this conversation between Myra and Rachel Hawkins that leads me to say - these two should host their own show together.

4. Rachel Hawkins
See reasoning for Myra McEntire, above.

5. Shelley Coriell
After reading Welcome, Caller, This is Chloe and knowing that Chloe lives in her brain I'm pretty sure she would be delightful on a TV show.

6. Andrea Cremer
Andrea Cremer is adorable. I met her at YallFest too and she has an amazing presence. Also, in the final competition between authors, she did an awesome job playing an evil teacher who walked around with a raven on her shoulder. I also believe she was one of the people who coined the term, "sexy times." So that could be fun.

7. John Green
Well, he already kind of has his own TV show. I don't think I need to explain...

8. Leah Clifford
I've now spent Christmas Day and Easter Sunday watching Leah Clifford's live shows. So yeah, I'd probably watch her TV show.

9. Kiersten White
I think Kiersten is one of those cases where I like the books so much because the author rocks. She's got a huge personality and I love the things she says. Plus, all the "bleeping" would probably make my life.

10. Kirsten Hubbard
 
I definitely think Kirsten Hubbard should have a traveling show in which she periodically reads from Wanderlove and/or says wisdomous things that come from travel experiences. Yeah? Anybody else?

  1. I confess to not watching reality TV, but I do watch John Green and Hank on the Vlogbrothers/Nerdfighters. I opted for free choice this week.

  3. Yes yes and more yes to Kirsten Hubbard having her own travel show - sorta like the 5 video promos she did to promote Wanderlove, it would be perfect! Except that I'm going to want to go everywhere she goes, which could be a pretty penny haha. And of course, anything John Green does, says or goes, I will follow forever.

    Great choices!

  4. I agree 100% with Sarah - when I read the topic she was the first author I thought of.
