Admit it, you have a crush on an author or two. Who is it? Why are they so crush-worthy?
I have an author crush on Rachel Vincent, and I’ve gobbled up most of her books within the past few years. Her Shifters and Soul Screamers series are among my faves, and I love how I get sucked into her characters and worlds she creates. I also have an author crush on Colleen Hoover, for the way she writes conversations and banter between her characters. So much fun just to read her writing. I bet her grocery list is entertaining.
My author crush is definitely Rainbow Rowell. I want to pack her up and carry her around with me all the time! First, her characters are the best. I feel like I could easily fit into any of her books and be best friends with Eleanor, or Cath from Fangirl, or Beth from Attachments, or Georgie from Landline. And I’m totally in lovc with Levi. If I ever really need a laugh, or a good cry, I read Fangirl. I mean, really, check out these quotes. Ms. Rowell couldn’t be more perfect, to me.
Underneath this veneer of slightly crazy and mildly socially retarded, I’m a complete disaster.
To really be a nerd, she decided, you had to prefer fictional worlds to real ones.
There are other people on the Internet. It’s awesome. You get all the benefits of ‘other people’ without the body odor and the eye contact.
Plus, Ms. Rowell is excellent on social media, especially tumblr. Where else can you see Harry Potter, Sherlock, Tom Hiddleston, and Star Wars all in one place? Plus reposts of all the amazing fan art for her books. If I had the time, I imagine this is what my tumblr posts would look like. And finally, who else would write a REAL book based on the fake fan-fiction book one of her character’s writes?
Only Rainbow Rowell, that’s who.
